The Fantasy AdventureAThon TBR

This ReadAThon runs from 25th to 31st of March and I am so keen! So the basics of this ReadAThon is to start at the bottom of the map & make your way up! So I will leave the map & the prompt meanings below. You can also check out all the details HERE!

Also I am in Team Mermaid!

My TBR

So I will not be aiming for all the challenges but I will explain that as I go!

Fellowship

Read the Group Book

This is the first challenge I will not be completing as I have already read the group book which is A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab!

Cliff

Read a book with a nature word in the title

The Storm Keeper’s Island by Catherine Doyle

Rat

Read a book with brown on the cover

The Wicked + The Divine: Vol 5 by Gillen McKelvie & Wilson Cowles

Fate

Read a book set in the past

Beastly Bones by William Ritter

Bewilderment

Read a book with a plot twist

This is the other challenge I will not be doing as I found it super hard to figure out what books have a plot twist that I own. All the lists I found online where older books that I had either read or didn’t own and I was not going out to buy a book just for this challenge. So SKIP!

Adventure

Read the first book in a a series

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Birgid Kemmerer

Potion

Read a book while drinking a drink

The Wicked + The Divine: Vol 6 by Gillen McKelvie & Wilson Cowles

So that is everything on my TBR! I’m so keen for this ReadAThon as its been a while since I participated in a ReadAThon with prompts.

Let’s Chat!

Ditching the TBR Posts

Copy of Header Image (6).png

Some of you may know that my life has been busy as hell lately! Not only am I running my own Beauty Therapy Salon, working as a Lifeguard, managing my photography business, running The YA Book Nerds on Facebook, Organising a Secret Santa round of The Book Nerds Book Exchange on Facebook, helping with the local Hospital Auxiliary, making candles & book sleeves for my Etsy shop and trying to find time to sleep, I also have to find time to read and blog in there somewhere.

I am well and truly behind on ARCs and I have to keep on top of the books that I have to read for my Facebook Group The YA Book Nerds as I need to write discussion questions each month. So because of all that I have decided to ditch monthly TBR posts to take the pressure off for a few months. Basically, I will only be reading ARC/Review Copies & BOTMs for The YA Book Nerds for the next couple of months. So instead of posting a monthly TBR, in this post I will share all the ARCs I currently have that I need to get to and also the November & December BOTMs for The YA Book Nerds (I don’t know what we will be reading in January as we won’t vote on that until mid-December).

The Knife of Never Letting Go Discussion is on the 24th of Nov.
Dates for Broken Things & And I Darken discussions are not yet released.

Blog titles (3)

Let’s just not mention the fact that some of these released last month, oh and the month before that…

So yes, this is basically my TBR for the next, I don’t know how long! As for audiobooks, I will just read whatever I feel like at the time. I am going to try and get the audiobook of The Knife of Never Letting Go for this months discussion, that way I know I will get it done in time for the discussion!

September 2018 TBR

Copy of Header Image (2)

First off I will be doing 2 ReadAThons in September. The first will not have a TBR as it is the TBR Jar ReadAThon and I don’t know what I’ll be reading until it starts and I pull the names out of the jar. The other, Banned Books ReadAThon, will have its own TBR.

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

This is one of the BOTMs for The YA Book Nerds, the Facebook Group I run. So I need to read this to create the discussion questions. I am also trying to get a couple people together to do a buddy read for this one between the 1st and 7th (TBR Jar RAT starts on the 8th).

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnston

Truly Devious will be a reread. This is also the other BOTM for The YA Book Nerds. I listened to Truly Devious on audiobook a while back and LOVED it! So I want to reread via the physical book & annotate it. Still waiting for it to come in the mail though!

Stalking Jack the Ripper & Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Both of these are Rereads. I’ve read SJTR twice now & HPD once. All those reads were via audiobook and I want to reread the physical book and annotate before Escaping From Houdini comes out! I’ve already started SJTR.

The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee 

This is another reread! We are reading The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats & Piracy in October as a Group Read on The YA Book Nerds. So I want to reread Gentlemen’s Guide!

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

It’s the second month in ADarkerShadeOfReadALongs and we are reading A Gathering of Shadows!

We Three Heroes by Lynette Noni

This is a Novella that goes with my second favourite series of all time. This released on the 29th and I’m anxiously waiting for it to ship!!

August 2018 TBR

Header Image (16)

Okay, so this won’t be a full TBR. Due to BookTubeAThon which is the first 5 days of August, Also Magical ReadAThon is the entirety of August. So that will be most of the books I will be reading in August. However, I do have a couple others I need to get to. So that are the ones I will feature here.

July 2018 TBR

Header Image (12)

Okay, so this will be a weird month! First off I haven’t decided on most of my TBR. Now the first part of the month will be dedicated to TBR Jar ReadAThon & Tome Topple ReadAThon and if you want to know what my possible reads for that are, then check out my TBR video below!

Next, Biannual Bibliothon is being held from the 14th till 20th & they haven’t announced the reading challenges yet! Which is also really freaking annoying as its only about 2 weeks until it starts & now it is too late to purchase anything online as it won’t get here in time… So I have no idea what I will read for that.

Lastly, BookTubeAThon is on at the end of July and into August. No reading challenges for that one yet either.

So I only have about a week or so of actual reading time in between all those ReadAThons. So I won’t have a tonne of times. But there is a couple of books that I want to read!

June 2018 TBR

Header Image (4)

Okay, so I had an AWESOME reading month in May when it comes to audiobooks. SO hopefully that will continue over into June. I haven’t put many audiobooks on my TBR, as I will be doing a separate TBR post that involves a few audiobooks. TBR & Beyond, one of the Facebook groups I am in, is hosting a Pride Event called Love is Love is Love and in that event, I will listening/reading some LGBTQIAP+ books. But I am doing a separate post for that as it won’t be a strict TBR, just possible reads if I get the time.

Now onto the TBR!
