🎇WWW Wednesday (13th November)🎇

Hi everyone,

Welcome back to another WWW Wednesday post! I love making these even though some people find them repetitive. I like sharing what I am reading with everyone but it is also a great way for me to keep track of what I am reading.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme originally hosted by daily rhythm but was revived by Samantha @Taking on a world of words.

All you have to do is answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?

What have you recently read?

What do are you planning on reading next?

(Pictures link to goodreads)

Currently reading:

The girl who speaks bear- Sophie Anderson

I really loved the house with chicken legs and I love the subtle links to that book in this one, really enjoying it so far!

Page: 102

With the fire on high- Elizabeth Acevedo

Same with this one! But all the talk of good is really making me hungry.

Page: 104

Every heart a doorway- Seanan McGuire

I don’t really have much to say about this one yet but I love learning about the doors and the different types.

Page: 33

Death warden- C. J. Stilling

I have been so focused on other things I haven’t picked this one up in days but what I have read so far is really interesting. There is a lot going on in this world and I’m loving learning about it.

Page: 148

Stories to read by candlelight- Patricia worry (translated)

I really have nothing to say about this one. I’m 8 pages in and am a little confused. This book is only 48 pages long so it shouldn’t take me long to read, hopefully I start to figure out what is going on soon.

Page: 8

Recently read:

The girl in red- Christina Henry

Once again I am blown away by Christina Henry’s writing. I just love these twisted tales so much. This story was about survival and what to do when the world is ending and I wasn’t expecting that. I really enjoyed it and red (the protagonist) was everything I would like to be in a crisis (but probably wouldn’t be😂).

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 💫

The land of roar- Jenny McLaughlin

I never know how to rate middle grade books because I am obviously not the audience they are set for but I still really enjoy reading them. So my ratings are usually just based on my level of enjoyment of the book. This was a really entertaining read and whenever I picked it up I was fully immersed in the story.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟.75

Wizard of once- Cressida Cowell

I forgotten have fast, fun and easy middle grads are to get through. I loved Wish as a character and found Xar annoying in places but overall I really loved this book and all the other characters as well. I can’t wait to get/ read book 2 because I have to know what happens next and I love that I get that feeling from a MG book.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

The substitute bride- Dorothy Mack

I’m sort of stuck between a 3 or a 3.5 stars for this book. Romance has been the thing getting me out of my slump recently (along with the MG books) and this one was great in that sense but it was lacking something and I don’t know what it was, so I think I am going to have to go 3 stars.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟

A sea rose for the duchess- Fanny Finch

Seriously give me anything with ships/ pirates and I am so down. I love the whole brooding captain of the ship thing but it was refreshing to have the captain be a true gentleman. I’m honestly thinking of giving this book a 4.5 stars because the story, the romance and the characters where all great (especially the romance😂). If you don’t like insta love sort of books I wouldn’t pick this up but if that doesn’t bother you and your looking for a romance with a handsome and gentlemanly ship captain then pick up this book.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

A Christmas kiss- Eliza J. Scott

I am stating to feel really festive. It was snowing here two days ago and ever since I have been in the holiday spirit. I suppose this was also insta lovey in a way but I love that sort of thing especially at Christmas time. They go sledding in this book and now I really want to😂. Think of it as a hallmark sort of read because I loved it and would love for this to be a movie😆.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 💫

Planning on reading next:

Tunnel of bones- V. E. Schwab

It’s really about time I got to this book now. Hopefully I will read it next week or at least start it🤞.

A pinch of magic- Michelle Harrison

I love this cover! Any book about magic is just the perfect book for me and it always feels even more magical in MG! Lol does that make sense?

Vicious- V. E. Schwab

Yes! I know I need to read this book. I feel like it’s been on nearly every WWW Wednesday post I have done🙈. I’m excited to read this so I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up yet but no more excuses!!

The amount of times I say ‘I’m surprised I liked something about MG makes it look like I don’t think I can enjoy a MG’ book that’s not true it’s just so nice when you can say that you were seriously shocked by it.

I think this is the biggest www Wednesday post I have done. I’m proud of the books I have managed to read over the last week! 5 ish books in about 6 days is not to bad especially since I have been in a bit of a slump, but I am slowly coming out of it with all the romance and MG books I have been reading. I finally feel like I am back to my reading rhythm.

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What are you currently reading this week? Let me know in the comments down below and happy reading!

Thank you so much for reading!

🏆Triwizardathon tbr🏆

Hi everyone,

Today I am going to be talking about my triwizardathon tbr. I only discovered this was a thing last week!🤦‍♀️ I’m so excited to take part in this readathon. Most of the books on this tbr are books that are already on my November tbr because I don’t think I could handle anymore books this month.

This readathon/ tournament is hosted and created by Jessica from Chapter charms, you should check out her blog.

So first of all let’s talk about schools. The school you represent depends on your birthday month:

Beauxbatons: January- April

Durmstrang: May- August

Hogwarts: September- December

The tournament is split into three tasks. The first task (which will take place from the 11-17th November) is, as we all know, dragons. In order to decide what dragon you are will depend on the house you are in. My dragon is a common welsh green! You only have to complete two challenges, each school is assigned a dragon and then you must choose a method for defeating said dragon. I am doing a terrible job at explaining this so for more information click Here and to sign up and put your name into the goblet of fire click this link Here.

As my birthday is in December I will be team Hogwarts🎉.


Dragon: (challenger 1)

common welsh green- It is said that a common welsh green may of started the fire of London, read a historical fiction.

For this challenge I have kind of cheated and gone with a historical romance because I really want to read it lol and that’s The substitute bride by Dorothy Mack.

what will I use to fight my dragon? (Challenge 2)

So I decided to do three of these challenges 1) because I couldn’t choose which one I wanted to do and 2) because I think that this might push me/ help me complete my tbr faster.

Conjunctivitis curse- Temporarily blind your dragon by reading a book with eyes on the cover.

For this prompt I went with With the fire on high by Elizabeth Acevedo. I don’t know whether this prompt means human eyes, any eyes or other eyes lol but there are still eyes on the cover so I’m going with it😂.

Bewitched sleep- Send your dragon to sleep by reading a whole book in bed.

For this challenge I went with Every heart a doorway by Seanan McGuire.I wanted something short even though I do a lot of my reading in bed, this way I can probably read it in one sitting.

Distraction- Distract your dragon by transfiguring a rock into an animal, read a book with an animal on the cover.

Finally, for this challenge I decided to read The last magician by Lisa Maxwell (mainly because it was the only book in my tbr with an animal on the cover). I’m glad I am going to be reading this book because I have wanted to for so long.

So that’s it! That is my tbr for the triwizardathon. I hope everyone will join because it’s going to be so much fun and the plus side is this readathon carries into December😱.

Are you planning on taking part in the teiwizardathon? What books are in your tbr? Have you read any of these books? Did you enjoy them? Let me know in the comments down below.

Thank you so much for reading!

🎇End of the year book tag🎇

Hi everyone,

Today I am going to be doing the end of year book tag. This tag was created by Ariel bissett. I think this tag was meant to be done a bit earlier on in the year like around September/ October time but I really wanted to do this tag so… I’m doing it.

There are 6 questions all together, so without further ado let’s get into them…

1. Are there any books that you started this year that you need to finish?

For this question I am going with Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin. I started reading. This book during my reading slump which was a very bad idea so I stopped reading it. I really want to read this soon! I have heard so many people love it and I’m so excited.

2.Do you have an autumnal book that you need to transition into the end of the year?

So I didn’t know how to interpret this question so I’m taking it as what book did you want to read during autumn that you didn’t get to but still want to😂 and in answer to that I chose Angelmage by Garth Nix. I really wanted to read this around Halloween time but I never got to it.

3.Is there a new release your still waiting for?

I am waiting for a few more releases but the main one is Crown of oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh which has technically already released but according to amazon it doesn’t release until December 26th?? Is this just amazon or the UK? Let me know because I am curious lol. But yes I am still waiting patiently to read this book, I don’t think I will be able to read it by the end of the year though.

4.What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

This was a lot harder than I thought it would be because there are so many books that I want to read by the end of the year. In the end I had to go with three books that have been on my tbr for ages and I still can’t believe I haven’t read yet and they are The cruel prince by Holly Black, Grey sister by Mark Lawrence and The name of the wind by Patrick Rothfuss . I have been putting off reading these three books for so long. The cruel prince because I am afraid that I won’t like it, grey sister because I was waiting for holy sister to release and the name of the wind because it’s… big😂. All lame excuses and I need to read them!!

5.Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your new favourite of the year?

I love it when books surprise me and become 5 star reads especially if I don’t predict that they will be 5 star reads but if I had to choose what books I think are going to be 5 star reads I would say The dragon republic by R. F. Kuang and Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo.

I read the poppy war earlier this year and absolutely loved it and so I’m hoping I will love the dragon republic just as much if not more than the first one😬🤞.

As for ninth house I have heard mixed things about but having read reviews and trigger warnings I now feel prepared to start this book. I didn’t realise it was a murder mystery until I read the reviews for this book and now I am even more excited because I love murder mysteries.

6.Have you started making reading plans for 2020?

I tend not to set myself reading goals. I would like (and I emphasise the like part) to read a lot of my older books/ books that have been on my tbr forever, more in 2020 but I don’t think I will ever be able to do that. This is particularly a reading goal but I have decided to limit myself to buying 10-12 books a month. Whilst this may seem like a lot if you have seen my book hauls recently you would understand that this is a huge cut back😂😂. Whether I will be able to stick to this I have no idea because I was going through all the books I am anticipating in 2020 and there are 19 so far🙈🙄😬 and it’s not even 2020 yet so… wish me luck.

Did you enjoy this tag? Do you have any reading goals for 2020? Let me know in the comments. And feel free to do this tag and tag me for no reason other than because I would love to see your answers.

Thank you so much for reading!

October book haul

Hi everyone

I am putting my October book haul up early on in November😱 what is going on? Does this mean that I might get a November wrap up up in the actual month of November, let’s hope so😂.

Ok so I bought 19 books in October, which compared to some other months is quite good for me. I have read 3 out of those 19🤦‍♀️. I need to read faster.

Let’s start with the books I have read


The governess game- Tessa Dare

Tessa Dare is slowly becoming one of my favourite romance authors, although I have only read 2 of her books so far, but they have both been really enjoyable. I think I preferred the duchess deal to this one but still a solid 4 star read.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

The dark decent of Elizabeth Frankenstein- kiersten white

A couple of months ago I read and I darken by keirsten white and I liked it, I thought it was good, it wasn’t my favourite, but I do want to continue on with that series at some point. When I heard about this book I was super excited to read it and discover other books kiersten white had written and it didn’t disappoint. Whilst this book was not at all what I was expecting it really surprised me (in a good way). I had such dark and creepy vibes reading this book and although it was definitely a lot darker than I thought I had so much fun reading it.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Heiress gone wild- Laura lee guhrke

I had never heard of Laura Lee guhrke before and after reading the synopsis for this book I was interested to see what I thought. The writing was great and witty. The main character was rather well rounded for someone as sheltered as she was and really enjoyable to read about, I just wish this book would of been. That is the only downside, I really liked everything else, the romance, humour etc. Really good read.

Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟. 75

To Read

The nightjars- Deborah Hewitt

I saw this book on one of the review of the days and I can’t remember who it was otherwise I would tag them🤔🤦‍♀️. But it sounded like something I would really enjoy reading and this cover is so pretty😍.

The aeronauts windlass by jim butcher

Jim butcher is an author I have wanted to read something from for a while but I didn’t know where to start. I think this is his newer series, but the synopsis really caught my attention more than some of the others.

Nowhere else it here by Rachel Cotton

I was browsing through amazon looking for a couple of contemporary reads. I know people usually read Romance/ contemporaries in summer time but I like reading them in winter also🤷‍♀️. This one along with the one below it really caught my attention and I really liked the sound of both of them.

Serious moonlight- Jenn Bennett

Jenn Bennett is a popular romance author and I have read non of her other books, so I’m hoping to rectify that soon. Out of the ones I have heard of this one really had me hooked so hopefully I can get to it soon.

Angelmage- Garth Nix

I feel like this book has been in a www Wednesday post (or maybe 4 www Wednesday posts but 🤫). I wanted to read this book during the Halloween month but once again it’s a book I didn’t manage to get to. But I still have it on my near future to be read pile, so hopefully that will be quite soon🤞.

Charmcaster- Sebastian de castell

This is the third book in the spellslinger series by Sebastian de castell. Once again I am buying series without even reading the first book (like I said I have a serious problem😂), but it was on sale, I couldn’t help myself so…🤷‍♀️

With the fire on high- Elizabeth Acevedo

I love this cover!! Ok before you think this was another cover buy, I did actually read the synopsis for this book, yes I know who am I? This book covers so many difficult topics and I’ve heard it is done very well. Another book I want to get to very soon… not that I actually will but I want to.

City of blades- Robert Jackson Bennett

Robert Jackson Bennett is another author I really want to get into. This is the second book to city of stairs (which I still haven’t read and still bought the sequel for). I want to read a Robert Jackson Bennett book soon whether it is this or foundryside, which also sounds really good to me.

Wizard of once- Cressida cowell

I bought all 5 of these books (this one and the 4 below) for the believathon, I couldn’t help myself even though I have middle grade books already on my shelf I felt like I needed new ones you know? I don’t know much about this one but I am excited to read it because I have heard good things.

Potkin and Stubbs- Sophie green

This is a detective mystery story which I am so ready for you have no idea. I haven’t read a murder mystery middle grade before and what makes it even better is one of the main characters is a ghost (that is not a spoiler, it’s in the synopsis) and I am so exited to read this book.

A pinch of magic- Michelle Harrison

I don’t know much about this either but I love this cover and have heard really good things (wow I really need a new sentence because this one is becoming redundant🤦‍♀️😂) and I’m excited to read it.

Frostheart- Jamie littler

I know nothing of this one either but I know that it is an adventure story and I love MG adventure stories. The polar bear explorers club was one of my favourites. I also think this book had a yeti in it which is super cool and I can’t wait.

The land of roar- Jenny McLaughlin

This one has dragons, I know that but beyond that I have no idea. I’m excited to find out more though and I am so ready for this month of middle grade (even though half my tbr is ya because I have so much to read this month🤫🤫)

The secret history- Donna tartt

After hearing Jamie from Leo reada talk about this book all the time I had to get my hands on a copy because I really want to see what I think. I’m kind of in the mood for dark academia at the moment which is why this would be a perfect time to read ninth house but my tbr is already huge😭.

The grey bastards- Jonathan french

This is another series I have heard great things about and don’t know what the actual book is about. Another book I want to get to soon (this near future tbr is getting longer and longer).

10 blind dates- Ashley Elston

It’s November, which means it’s time to stock my personal library with Christmassy reads. I want to read this book now not in December but 1) it’s for Christmas so I need to pace myself and 2) with my tbr the size it is I don’t think that’s such a good idea.

I am really excited to get to all of these books. Have you read any of them? Did you enjoy them? Any of these books catch your attention? Any really great books you bought in October that you think I would like? Let me know in the comments below.

Thank you so much for reading!

🎇Anticipated November book releases 2019🎇

Hi everyone,

I can’t believe I am talking about November releases already. 2020 is nearly here😱. So listed below are 4 of my most anticipated November releases.

There are some amazing releases this month and I can’t wait to read them all (as well as the rest of my extremely long tbr🤦‍♀️).

Ok so let’s get into them…

Her crown of fire by Renee April

In the dull, everyday world, seventeen-year-old Rose Evermore struggles to plan beyond her final year of high school. But when fire suddenly obeys her every command and her dreams predict the future, she becomes hungry for more of this strange power.

Under her dreams’ guidance, Rose lands in the fantasy realm of Lotheria–with a tagalong. Tyson, her best friend since childhood, winds up there with her, just as confused and a hell of a lot more vulnerable. In Lotheria, Rose is welcomed and celebrated as a fire mage at the Academy, while the very un-magical Tyson is forced into hiding under threat of death from the headmasters of Rose’s new school.

As Rose’s talent in fire magic draws unwanted attention and Tyson struggles to transition from high school student to blacksmith, Rose must find a way to return Tyson to their own world before the headmasters discover and execute him–no matter the cost

I think this book comes out on the 31st of October for some but on amazon it’s the 1st🤷‍♀️ ( so when I am posting this it’s already out but I had to include it anyway). I’m so excited to read this book and may have already preordered it😆.

Release date: 1st November

The toll by neal shusterman

Thou shalt kill.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own

I don’t think I should include a synopsis for the toll because of spoilers but I will add the synopsis for scythe instead.

I need to read THUNDERHEAD!!!! I can’t believe this book releases this month and I still haven’t read thunderhead yet🤦‍♀️. I don’t think I put thunderhead on my November tbr either (help me).

Release date: 7th November

10 blind dates by Ashley Elston

Sophie wants one thing for Christmas-a little freedom from her overprotective parents. So when they decide to spend Christmas in South Louisiana with her very pregnant older sister, Sophie is looking forward to some much needed private (read: make-out) time with her long-term boyfriend, Griffin. Except it turns out that Griffin wants a little freedom from their relationship. Cue devastation.

Heartbroken, Sophie flees to her grandparents’ house, where the rest of her boisterous extended family is gathered for the holiday. That’s when her nonna devises a (not so) brilliant plan: Over the next ten days, Sophie will be set up on ten different blind dates by different family members. Like her sweet cousin Sara, who sets her up with a hot guy at an exclusive underground party. Or her crazy aunt Patrice, who signs Sophie up for a lead role in a living nativity. With a boy who barely reaches her shoulder. And a screaming baby.

When Griffin turns up unexpectedly and begs for a second chance, Sophie feels more confused than ever. Because maybe, just maybe, she’s started to have feelings for someone else . . . Someone who is definitely not available.

This is going to be the worst Christmas break ever… or is it?

I was searching for a good contemporary to read and this one caught my eye. But what makes this book even better is that it is a Christmas book😱. I love Christmas books!🎉 and yes I may have already pre ordered this book also (I regret nothing😂).

Release date: 14th November

Blood heir by Amelie wen zhao

This hot debut is the first book in an epic new series about a princess hiding a dark secret and the con man she must trust to clear her name for her father’s murder. 

In the Cyrilian Empire, Affinites are reviled. Their varied gifts to control the world around them are unnatural—dangerous. And Anastacya Mikhailov, the crown princess, has a terrifying secret. Her deadly Affinity to blood is her curse and the reason she has lived her life hidden behind palace walls. 

When Ana’s father, the emperor, is murdered, her world is shattered. Framed as his killer, Ana must flee the palace to save her life. And to clear her name, she must find her father’s murderer on her own. But the Cyrilia beyond the palace walls is far different from the one she thought she knew. Corruption rules the land, and a greater conspiracy is at work—one that threatens the very balance of her world. And there is only one person corrupt enough to help Ana get to its core: Ramson Quicktongue.

A cunning crime lord of the Cyrilian underworld, Ramson has sinister plans—though he might have met his match in Ana. Because in this story, the princess might be the most dangerous player of all.

I have to be honest with everyone and tell you that the thing that first drawn me to this book was the cover🙈 (isn’t that always the case though)? The synopsis sounds good to though😆.

Release date: 21st November

Never tilting world by Rin Chupeco

Frozen meets Mad Max in this epic teen fantasy duology bursting with star-crossed romance, immortal heroines, and elemental magic, perfect for fans of Furyborn.

Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon. But seventeen years ago, one sister’s betrayal defied an ancient prophecy and split their world in two. The planet ceased to spin, and a Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in perpetual night, the other scorched by an unrelenting sun. 

While one sister rules Aranth—a frozen city surrounded by a storm-wracked sea —her twin inhabits the sand-locked Golden City. Each goddess has raised a daughter, and each keeps her own secrets about her sister’s betrayal. 

But when shadowy forces begin to call their daughters, Odessa and Haidee, back to the site of the Breaking, the two young goddesses —along with a powerful healer from Aranth, and a mouthy desert scavenger —set out on separate journeys across treacherous wastelands, desperate to heal their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.

This book released in October but it says on amazon that it doesn’t release until November. I thought this might mean just the paperback like usual but no the hardback hasn’t been released yet either🤷‍♀️.

release date: 28th November

Queen of nothing (the third book in the folk of the air series) by Holly Black comes out this month also but I haven’t read the first two yet so I couldn’t put it on this list, although I am still excited for it. Is that weird? Probably😂. Also crown of oblivion by Julie eshbaugh, which doesn’t release in the UK until December😫.

What are your most anticipated November releases? Are you excited for any of the books I have listed as well? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks so much for reading!

🎇November TBR🎇

Hi everyone,

Today I am going to be talking/ writing my November tbr. This was so stressful to do. When I first started this post I had approximately 35 books on here🤦‍♀️, but I managed to get it down to 20🎉 I am so proud of myself😂.

So I am going to be taking part in the believe in the impossible readathon or believeathon for short. I love gavins channel and his love of middle grade books (and all things bookish). When I watched his announcement video for believeathon about reading all MG books I was like yessss pleaseee Lol. If you haven’t already go and check out gavins/ believeathon twitter for all the information which I will leave Here.

Believe in the impossible readathon:

So I know for a fact that I am not going to be able to complete all 10 challenges but being someone who likes to challenge themselves I know that I can read more than 4? So I decided that 6 was doable🤷‍♀️ don’t ask me how I came to this number😂.

let’s get into my tbr, (Click pictures to add to goodreads).

Read a book featuring magicA pinch of magic by Michelle Harrison

I have been wanting to get to this book for a while and this readathon is the perfect time to stop making excuses and just READ THE BOOK!! I’m excited😆. As much as I have been wanting to read it I still don’t know that much about it, but I think I’m going to go into this one blind.

A book featuring a myth or legend-The land of roar by Jenny McLaughlin

This is another book that I have heard such great things about but haven’t read yet, although I do know that it has dragons which… is pretty much all I need to know about this book. And this cover is so pretty in my opinion.

Read a book with a strong friendship- Tunnel of bones- Victoria schwab

Scwab is a QUEEN!!! I love anything Schwab and have been looking for an excuse to put this on my tbr for November and now I have the perfect excuse. Tunnel of bones was a 4.5 star read and I’m hoping that I love this one as much as the first.

Atmospheric or creepy bookPotkin and Stubbs by Sophie Green

Ok so the cover of this book was what originally drew my attention to this book, but when I found out this was sort of a detective/ mystery story I had to find a way to put it on my tbr. I did have tunnel of bones as my atmospheric or creepy book but I had to switch that to a different prompt in order to use this one as my atmospheric or creepy read.

Read a book with an animal characterWizard of once by Cressida Cowell

I am so excited to read this book to basically I am just excited for this readathon🎉. I’m pretty sure this book has animals in it? I mean there is an animal on the cover and I am sure I have heard someone mention wolves? Who knows either way I’m reading it😂.

Read the group bookFrostheart by Jamie Littler

Gavin has been talking about this book non stop since he received the arc and he has me super excited to read it. This is an adventure story filled with monsters, magic and a yeti… need I say more.


These are some other books that I want to get to this month.

where she belongs- Kaitlin Cooke

This is an arc that I was sent by the author for review. All I know about this one is that it is a romance which I love. But this book as bull riding which is something I haven’t read about before and I am really intrigued to read this book.

Death warden- C. J. Stilling

I was also sent a copy of this book for review by the author. This is a YA fantasy story about magic and assassins. I love both magic and assassins and I can’t wait to read this one because it sounds like something I’m going to enjoy.

The monsters of music- Rebecca F. Kenney

I have never read a phantom of the opera retelling before and what is better is that this is a gender bent retelling of phantom of the opera. This book was sent to me by the author and was released yesterday or the day before and I still haven’t read it or reviewed it yet🤦‍♀️

With the fire on high- Elizabeth Acevedo

First of all this cover is so pretty😍. So from what I can gather this is about a teenage high school student with a daughter who has a passion for cooking. I have heard that this book selves into some hard hitting topics such as race, teen pregnancy, relationships family and poverty with a touch of romance and I can’t wait to read it.

The last magician- Lisa maxwell

I have had this book on 4 tbrs now as well as at least 3 www Wednesday posts and I still haven’t read it yet. I love books that have to do with time travel and magic so I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up, but hopefully this is the month🤞.

Serpent and dove- Shelby Mahurin

Nearing the end of the month of October I started reading this book but I put it down at about 100 pages because I was in a slump and just wasn’t feeling it at the time. I really want to pick this back up during the month of November.

Vicious- V. E. Schwab

I have said it once and I will say it again, I love Schwab! This book/ duology is the only book/s (besides tunnel of bones and the unbound) that I have left of Schwab and I have been putting it off because I like having unread Schwab reads on my shelf as I always look forward to reading them. But I can’t put them off any longer I really want to read this duology.

every heart a doorway- seanan McGuire

I have read the prologue to this book 3 times now and always put it down to read something else which doesn’t make any sense because I am always intrigued by the prologue every time I read it. I really want to read this book this month😬.

Lady smoke- Laura Sebastian

Ash princess was a solid 4 star read for me earlier on this year. I really liked Theodosia as a character and the plot twists in this book really surprised me so I’m intrigued to see where this story goes from here. The third book doesn’t release until 2020 so I hope there isn’t a cliff hanger.

the girl in red- Christina Henry

Christina Henry is an author I have really come to love. Her twisted reimagining of the original stories are so well done and I love them. I want to read lost boy as well as this one but I’m going to read this one first because I already own a copy.

The enchantress returns- chris colfer

This is the second book to the land of stories by Chris colfer. Each book features a character from a famous fairytale that we all love (some have more than one). I could potentially use this for one of the prompts for believeathon if I get to it?

The ten thousand doors of January- Alix E. Harrow

When I read the blurb for this book it sounded like such a magical and whimsical story. I’ve heard this is such a unique story and there are doors to other worlds which sounds. I love any book that features magic and adventure and this is just that.

Malice- John gwynne

This is by far the longest book on this tbr, but if I can I really want to read this book this month. I have heard great things about this book and John gwynnes writing, so even though this book is a tome I’m still really excited to pick it up.

The secret history- Donna tartt

This book is also a tome! I am being really ambitious with this tbr. I have heard Jamie from Leo reads rave about this book so I had to pick up a copy because I really want to know what my thoughts are on it.

I feel like all I have said for this tbr is ‘I really want to read…’😂 but there is nothing new there.

What’s your tbr like this month? Is is as chaotic as mine? Or more maybe? Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments below

Thank you so much for reading!
