I’ve started posting my monthly TBR lists on my blog because I think it’s great motivation for me. Plus, I enjoy reading other people’s posts at the beginning of each month, so I thought why not. It’s always good fun to go back at the end of the month and see what you got to, what you didn’t, and what you’re planning on carrying over to the next month. In January, I managed to read 6 out of the 9 books that I listed, and I’m in the middle of the 7th (on audio). I’m planning on reading The Library of Shadows this week, and I’ll get to American Gods some time in February. February is a shorter month, and it’s normally the month that puts me in an epic reading slump from hell, so I’m going to try to conquer this by picking some awesome books.
My friend Alex and I were going to read this in December but I got a bit sidetracked by my reading slump. But we’re finally ready to read the sequel to The Cuckoo’s Calling! I’m looking forward to diving into another crime novel, as I don’t read many and I do quite enjoy them.
I’m letting myself buy one book a month until I decide that my TBR is down to a reasonable number, and Salt to the Sea is my book of the month. It came out in the UK yesterday and my copy has already arrived, so I’ll be devouring this one very soon! I’m so excited to get my hands on it because Ruta Sepetys is one of my favourite authors, and her historical books are some of the best.
I’ve been promised that Six of Crows is miles better than the shitfest that was Ruin & Rising, so I have high hopes for it. I’ve decided to finally give it a go. Thanks to Judith, I have my own copy of this and I don’t have to worry about breaking any bans for it!
