JUNE TBR (2019)

Hey Readers, happy June! I am being VERY ambitious this month, as every book on this TBR I am itching to read, so I am determined to read ALL OF THESE in June. Let’s go! There are also some readathons happening this month, and the one’s I hope to participate in are Buzzwordathon, Romance-athon, and Summer-athon (linked some announcement videos) and I will have my TBR’s for those closer to the start. I don’t know why I prioritised these, as all of them are pretty high priority to be honest. But we’ll see where the month takes me! I’m gonna need to be really organised in June!

MAY TBR (2019)

*IT’S GONNA BE MAY!* Apologies for the weeks delay in posting my TBR’s, it’s been a busy first week as it was my best friends Hen Party weekend! So it’s the start of another month! After last months OWL’s Readathon, I thought I would’ve been too burnt out to participate in another readathon, but no. I’m participating in another TWO MONTH-LONG readathons! I have already posted my TBR’s for both the Mental Health-athon and the Asian Readathon (along with relevant info for them), and all the books on my TBR will of course mirror those books, but I have still set them in order of priority in case I end up not being able to complete all the books. I hope it all goes well, most of these books have been on my shelf for ages so I’d love to get some of those read!



Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo

This Song Will Save Your Life – Leila Sales

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns – Julie C Dao

Four Weeks, Five People – Jennifer Yu

A Thousand Beginnings and Endings – Ellen Oh et. al.

Made You Up – Francesca Zappia

  • Classics pick: The Handmaids Tale – Margaret Atwood
  • Non-Fiction pick: Girl, Interrupted – Susanna Kaysen


So what are you planning to read this month? Have you read any of the books on my TBR? Are you participating in the Asian Readathon or the Mental Health-athon? What else are you planning to read in May? I’d love to know!

APRIL TBR [2019]

Now I know that my OWL’s TBR is basically what my TBR for the month will be, but I still wanted to prioritise the books I’m reading because I’m just that bit extra! Conveniently, my priority list consists of 12 books, and there are 12 books I’m trying to read for the OWL’s! But if I don’t get to everything, I have to prioritise the one’s I really want to complete in order to do certain careers in the NEWT’s exams.

MARCH TBR [2019]

So this was the first month of the year where I let a TBR wheel decide what I’m reading, and it was really fun and helped my choices. There’s only one readathon which I am participating in which is the Buzzword Readathon, and I already have my TBR decided which I’m really excited about and will post closer to the start date! I suspect that I’ll be completing less books this month, mainly because of the GIANT I’m attempting to read, but I am really excited to get to as many of these as possible! Here are the books I really want to get to in February, listed by priority, I’m also including my classics and non-fiction pick for the month. Enjoy!



The Winter of The Witch – Katherine Arden

The Priory of The Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon

In An Absent Dream – Seanan McGuire

All The Bright Places – Jennifer Niven

When The Moon Was Ours – Anna-Marie McLemore

How Do You Like Me Now? – Holly Bourne

So what are you planning to read this month? As we’re nearly at the end of the first quarter of the year, how’s your reading challenges going? I’d love to know!

Hey readers! I hope you’re doing well! I aim to continue February with the same pace as January… I am in such a great reading mood and I honestly want to read all the books! February is a mix of romance/contemporary books (because, Valentine’s Day) and also some wintery, cosy books, because it had been snowing in my town in the UK and I now want to read loads of wintery books… perfect for the Polarthon planned in the beginning! Following from that, I am participating in two readathons this month, again. The Polarthon and Contemporary-athon Round 4, of which I will post my TBR closer to their start dates. I guess it turned into a positive reading experience in January so I want to do it again! Anyways, didn’t mean to ramble on, here are the books I really want to get to in February, listed by priority! I’m also including my classics and non-fiction pick for the month. Enjoy!

Here’s the first TBR of the year! I have already been planning out the books I want to start the year off with, so this selection was quite easy to make. I decided to stick with my usual TBR set-up which was to have books organised in priority, but this year I’ve decided to put down 3 books for each sets of priority to give myself a bit more of a choice. It’s always interesting to see which of those books I ended up reading at the end of the month!



The Bear and The Nightingale – Katherine Arden

Vicious – V. E. Schwab

Empress of All Seasons – Emiko Jean

Prisoner of Azkaban – J. K. Rowling

Eliza and Her Monsters – Francesca Zappia

Here it is, the final month of 2018! Time to get as much read as possible to boost our reading challenges… or maybe that’s just me? This months TBR is going to be different, mainly because I am challenging myself by reading for 3 back-to-back readathons which will take up the majority of the month. Soooo, I thought it’ll be easier to link my posts for my readathon TBR’s for the month. There are collectively 9 books which is pretty much as many as I usually include in a TBR anyway, and a lot of the books I really want to read I have pushed back to the New Year!



3rd – 9th December

Official Announcement by Bookables





A Very Merry Readathon

10th -16th December

So what are you guys hoping to read in December? Anyone else participating in some of/all these readathons? Have you also starting planning your reading goals for next year? I’d love to know!
