Books Collecting Dust On My TBR

These are all the books that have been sitting on my shelf the longest. Which is silly because some of them I was incredibly excited to read! If you’ve read any of these, I would love to know your thoughts.

What are some of your goals this year?

My Top Ten Reading Goals of 2018

Reading Goals of 2018

  1. Read a thriller
    I’m not sure if I have ever read a thriller, but I want to as part of stepping outside my comfort zone.
  2. Read a book of poetry
    It has been a while and my English class, last semester reminded me that I enjoy poetry.
  3. Read a book by Brene Brown
    Her books have been recommended to me so often, that it’s time.
  4. Re-read Harry Potter
  5. Reduce my physical TBR to 60 or less.
    Right now I’m sitting at about 90, My plan is to read and otherwise unhaul enough books to meet that goal this year. Keep an eye out for ‘Try A Chapter’ posts throughout the year! My plan is to try 4, and choose 1 to read, 1 to keep and 2 to unhaul.
  6. Read The Name of the Wind (finally!)
    Because this is the third year I’ve set this goal – third times the charm right?
  7. Read 12 finales
    There are 12 series I am reading that I only need to read the last book to complete, so really I have no excuse!
  8. Read the final 4 books I bought in 2015
    These are the last 4 books I have a record of buying in 2015 and are still unread.
  9. Participate in at least 3 Read-a-thons
    I participated in zero last year.
  10. Read 100 Books
    Pretty self-explanatory. I want to spend less time on social media and TV and more time reading.

What are some of your goals this year?

Top Ten Tuesday: 2018 Releases

Top Ten Tuesday: 2018 Releases

I am really choosy with the new releases I put on my TBR. I prefer to wait a few months after their release to see what kind of response they get. (This doesn’t apply to sequels or my favorite authors) I find this also means that I notice more under hyped books throughout the year by paying close attention to what my friends, with similar tastes, are reading. That being said here are ten books I cannot wait to get my hands on. (And some I’m blessed to have ARCs of)

  • Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce
    We are finally getting Numair’s origin story! I can’t tell you how excited I am about this.
  • Sightwitch by Susan Dennard
    Set a year before Truthwitch, the first book in the series, Ryber’s story is told through journal entries and other materials. This novella expands on The Witchlands world and sets up events for the next installment, Bloodwitch. (Squealing for joy that I have an eARC of this!)
  • Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
    The third and final book in the Illuminae Files! I’m not ready for it to be over but I also cannot wait for this book ❤
  • A Thousand Beginnings and Endings by Various Authors
    An anthology of fifteen stories that retell folklore from South and East Asia. Roshani Chokshi shared a glimpse of her and it sounds absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait.
  • Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Liane Oelke
    Expelled from High School, Jane has to complete her classes at the local college. To prove to the world she has what it takes to be a winner, she joins a student-run reality show similar to Big Brother.
  • The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton
    I don’t know how to describe this book but it has been blurbed by every author I love so how could I not want it? Also, it’s huge! Look for my review coming soon!
  • A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena
    Zarin is the girl parents don’t want their kids hanging out with. When she is found dead in a car crash everyone begins to wonder how well they really knew her. Told in MPOV, her story is pieced together to reveal she is much more than ‘a girl like that’.
  • Nothing by Sky by Amy Trueblood
    This is a post-World War one historical fiction about a woman wing walker! I don’t know what to expect but I’ve definitely never read anything like it before.
  • Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
    The second book in the Ember series had some twists I never expected so I can’t wait to read Sabaa’s third book.
  • Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
    The cover and the synopsis are equally incredible. I love revenge stories and this sounds like one not to miss!

I’m curious, what release are you excited for? Which sequel so you need ASAP? And what debut is the most appealing to you?
