This Week’s TBR List

Alrighty, let’s see if I can stick to a TBR this week.

Berkley Street (Berkley Street #1)The October Faction, Vol. 1Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits (Zoey Ashe, #1)The Queen's Line (Inheritance of Hunger, #1)

  • Berkley Street
    This is a buddy read — 1 spooky novella a week!
  • The October Faction, Vol. 1
    Another weekly spooky buddy read, but this one is a comic.
  • Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits
    A week before this one gets returned! Yikes, I gotta read this one quick. It is a reread I just hope I like it as much as I did the first time. 
  • The Queen’s Line
    This is a buddy read I’m really late getting to 😕

Queen's Quality, Vol. 3Better Than People (Garnet Run, #1)Who We Truly Are (Enhanced, #2)Barbarian's Hope (Ice Planet Barbarians, #10)

  • Queen’s Quality, Vol. 3
    I’m so excited this one came in!
  • Better Than People
    This is another library book that I’ve been waiting for! I’m super excited to read it.
  • Who We Truly Are
    I’m kinda feeling like continuing this series.
  • Barbarian’s Hope
    I usually don’t put Ruby Dixon on my TBR, she’s just an author I randomly pick up as needed, but I think I’m going to need a feel-good read. This may be because I’m watching one of the creepier episodes of Supernatural, buuuuut yeah I need books that balance out my creepy reads.

  • Our Dreams and Dusk, Vol. 2 by Yuki Kamatani 💥🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 – This series is so good. I didn’t realize there were such inclusive manga.
  • Just Like That by Cole McCade 🍰🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Cole McCade does it again. This book is great and I’m looking forward to reading the next.
  • Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen 🐾🎧
    ⭐⭐⭐.5 – Years ago I read that this book has a great audiobook and I kept meaning to read it. Finally I suggested it as a buddy read and I finally got myself around to reading it. It is… a pretty good book and I could listen to the next, but I’m not dying to get to it yet.
  • Ghosted in L.A., Vol. 2 by Sina Grace 💥🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐
  • Failed Princesses, Vol. 2 by Ajiichi 💥🌈

»Did Not Finish

The Babysitters Coven (The Babysitters Coven, #1)

I finally got around to my ARC of The Babysitters Coven 🐲, but after just 13% I decided it wasn’t for me. Such a bummer….

Final Thoughts on the week

Lots of graphic novels! This seems to be a trend. I’m also in the mood for books with witches and mysteries, which you aren’t seeing too much yet… but yeah.

Currently Reading

Raise Hell (Hell Hounds Harem, #7)In the Hall with the Knife (Clue Mystery, #1)The Crawling Darkness (Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper #3)

No progress on Raise Hell, but I do hope to read some more of it this week. I seem to totally be in the mood for mysteries and I have a love for that old movie, Clue, so I allowed an indulgence and started In the Hall With the Knife. I’m 60% in and while I’m enjoying it, I wouldn’t say it is an amazing book. This morning I started listening to The Crawling Darkness because, again, I’m interested in reading mysteries– ghost stories even more. It helps it is an audio which I was craving too.

This Week’s TBR List

I’m still not totally in the right mindset to be following a weekly TBR, but thought I should try to get myself back on track somehow. Maybe this will help. So, here are 6 additional books I’m going to try reading this week.

BonesAngel Unseen (Unseen MC #1)Hench

  • Bones by Howard Odentz
    This is a buddy read novella for this week. It is only like 30 pages or so, so I think I can get it read.
  • Angel Unseen by J. Bree
    A victim of my mental overhyping… I want to read it so badly, but I’m afraid I won’t like it, so I keep pushing it off.
  • Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots
    Another buddy read! Plus, I have a review copy for it. I really really want to read it…

Trade Deadline (Hat Trick, #3)Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits (Zoey Ashe, #1)Trace of Evil (Natalie Lockhart #1)

  • Trade Deadline by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn
    My copy finally came in from the library! Only a week left to read it, so I do need to pick it up this week.
  • Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits by David Wong
    So, this will be a re-read, but I have a review copy of the sequel and want a refresher before continuing on.
  • Trace of Evil by Alice Blanchard
    I’m throwing this one on my TBR because I do want to read a mystery and this one is a review copy I have. I’m feeling more paranormal mystery story, but this might fit the bill.

Cool Beans: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking with the World's Most Versatile Plant-Based Protein, with 125 RecipesArm Candy Warrior (The Heights Crew #2)

This week I’m totally going to finish Cool Beans — I swear! I really need some more variety in my meals. I’m also on book 2 of The Heights Crew and… addicted to it. I’m not saying it is fantastic, I just can’t get myself to look away. You know what I’m talking about???

This Week’s TBR List

Okay, I’m still a little rocky and my reading mood is way wack. I’ve been reading dark romances left and right, but nothing is checking the box. So… *shrugs* I don’t know what to do. I’m probably going to wing it this week, but thought I’d give myself six extra books as a guideline… if I need it. 

The Hitman's Guide to Tying the Knot Without Getting Shot (The Hitman's Guide #3)Raise Hell (Hell Hounds Harem, #7)Angel Unseen (Unseen MC #1)

  • The Hitman’s Guide to Tying the Knot Without Getting Shot by Alice Winters
    YES! Okay, this is gonna be hilarious and if anything can get me outta my funk, this is the book. Drops on the 15th 😁!
  • Raise Hell by Briana Michaels
    Yes, I know this looks like a dark book and should satisfy my craving, but it isn’t going to be. If it is like the other books it’ll be violent, but surprisingly sweet. I wanna read about Lucifer getting his girl though!! 
  • Angel Unseen by J. Bree
    THIS! This is the book I want to read right now. It drops on the 18th though… I. Need. This. Book. 

Deal with the Devil (Mercenary Librarians, #1)The Zoya FactorLover Mine (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #8)

  • Deal with the Devil by Kit Rocha
    I know I’m going to love this book. I’m waiting for the right mood, but maybe I should just jump on it. 
  • The Zoya Factor by Anuja Chauhan
    Ummmmm this book sounds like the absolute cutest. I just need my mood to flip so I can pick this one up. 
  • Lover Mine by J.R. Ward
    Because I really should get to work on my library books before I have 7 all to read in a week. 😕

Murder of Crows (The Others, #2)Take a Hint, Dani Brown (The Brown Sisters, #2)

I’m doing a re-read of The Others! This is a series I love enough to buy, so you know it is a fave. Once I start, I have a hard time stopping, so I’m assuming I’m going to read mostly this series this week. At least I’m already on book 2! I also started Take a Hint. Dani Brown. So far, so good, I’m just caught up in other books.

I’m still working on The Poppy Warnow I’m 65% into it. I have four days before it is returned… 
Of course, knowing I have a ton of library books to read, I still picked up Hannaford Prep: The complete series to re-read. After reading The Butcher of the Bay, I couldn’t help myself ^_^. I’m on the last book, so I should be able to finish it tonight.  Continue reading “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

Just My LuckNightshades (Nightshades, #1)The Poppy War (The Poppy War, #1)

I needed a laugh, so I started Just My Luck yesterday. Not as funny as some of the author’s other works, but I’m enjoying it. I also started Nightshades yesterday, but it turned into more of a police procedural and… I think the main character annoys me. He is kind of an entitled prick. I’m 26% into it and think I might just give it another chapter or so before I give up on it.
I’m still working on The Poppy Warhopefully this week I’ll be able to read it steadily, a little every day instead. Continue reading “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

This Week’s TBR List

Alright, I did good last week with a shorter TBR and it makes me focus on it more… I also plan on being busier this week, so a shorter TBR will work out for me. 

The Poppy War (The Poppy War, #1)Gideon the Ninth (The Locked Tomb, #1)The Butcher of the Bay: Part II (Mounts Bay Saga #2)

  • The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
    A Group Read for this month! I’m very excited to jump into a fantasy without a romance focus. 
  • Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
    Am I ready to cry again? No, but I really want to re-read this before jumping into Harrow. 
  • Butcher of the Bay: Part II by J. Bree
    This should be coming out this week. I’m joining a buddy read of this and cannot wait to see how they finally get together. 

He Started ItCinderella Is DeadFake to Fate (Fate, #1)

  • He Started It by Samantha Downing
    I’m actually kind of feeling this one? I want revenge! I also feel like I can finally breathe away from romance, so yeah I’m trying to slowly fit back in my non-romance reads. 
  • Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron
    I need this book to fulfill a challenge (book with trees/leaves on the cover), plus it sounds great. 
  • Fake to Fate by Anastasia Austin
    An a cute sounding novella because I know I’m going to need romance AND a shorter book with all these long ones *cough* The Poppy War is over 600 pages *cough*

So, this week looks pretty diverse, in terms of genre and feel of the books. I’m excited to get reading~

Yes, I finished all the books on my ‘Currently Reading’ shelf. I’m starting this week with a blank slate which is… somewhat weird.

  • Operation Get Her Back by Claire Kingsley
    This one I’m adding because I do need to continue this series– I really want to start a different series by this author, but am determined to finish this one first.

Grave Consequences (Hellgate Guardians, #2)Protecting What's Mine

I started Protecting What’s Mine, but ended up not feeling it. I ended up reading some other great things yesterday, including starting Hellgate Guardians series — I’m currently on book two, Grave Consequences. I’m enjoying it, but think after I finish this book, I’ll switch back to Protecting What’s Mine for a bit before finishing off the Hellgate Guardian series.  Continue reading “It’s Monday!
