December TBR!

For the past few months, I’ve made monthly TBR’s and completely ignored them for the entire month. I blame school. But this month, I’m really going to try to stick to a TBR and set reading goals for myself. So below is a brief TBR list for the month of December.

  • A Torch Against the Night, by Sabaa Tahir (currently reading)
  • American Born Chinese, by Gene Luen Yang
  • Heir of Fire, by Sarah J. Maas
  • (I’m thinking of re-reading The Wrath & the Dawn and The Rose & the Dagger)
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, by J.K. Rowling
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor
  • Across the Universe, by Beth Revis

March TBR

A little bit late, but I wanted to put out my March TBR and share with you the books that I really want to get around to reading sometime this month!

cruel beauty

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

I already read Cruel Beauty earlier this month, and man was I extremely disappointed. This was a Beauty and the Beast retelling interlaced with some Greek mythology, so I had really high hopes. However, I found myself extremely letdown by the end of this book. I’m not going to go into too much detail because I will be posting a full book review for Cruel Beauty very soon.

City of Glass

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

just finished this book, and oh my gosh it was amazing. The books in The Mortal Instruments series seem to just get better and better. Again, I don’t want to talk too much about this book here because I will DEFINITELY be writing a full review for this book very soon as well. Bottom line: it was amazing, and I’m so glad I finally got around to reading the third installment of this series.

city of fallen angels

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

Considering City of Glass was so amazing, I feel like the pattern of increasing quality with each book in the series will carry on with this fourth installment. With everything that happened in the ending of City of Glass, I’m not really sure what this book is about, and I actually want to keep it that way. I haven’t looked at the synopsis or anything, but I’m really excited to see what happens next in the Shadowhunter world!

Harry_Potter_and_the_Half-Blood_Prince_(US_cover)

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Although I’m pretty late to the Harry Potter game, I am truly loving this series. There is so much validity in the statement that Harry Potter is enjoyable for people of all ages. As an adult, I still find these books so meaningful and adventurous, and so entertaining. I can’t wait to see what happens next. I was so devastated at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but still feel so giddy about going into Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts. I already know there are so many more deaths I am to expect in the final two books of the series, but I can’t help but feel overwhelming excitement and eagerness when thinking about reading them!

city of lost souls

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

I don’t want to have any sort of hiatus between each book in this series because I know I tend to fall into slumps when I do that. Therefore, I definitely want to get around to reading the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series. Again, I have no idea what this installment is about and would like to keep it that way. I’m surprised at how successful I have been at avoiding spoilers for this series considering I’m usually always spoiled when it comes to popular books.

I know that all of these books I’m listing are pretty hefty, so it’d be a miracle if I can get around to reading the last Harry Potter book, but I’m hoping I can! I’m actually a bit sad that I’m nearly done with the Harry Potter series!


 

Well, those are my reading goals for March 2016! Let me know what your TBR is looking like! And don’t forget to follow me on IG: @bookrecs625
