It’s Valentine’s Day! The day of love is upon us so I thought I’d do a little something to celebrate it. I’ve asked a number of bloggers and authors what their favourite romances in YA books are so today I’m here to share them all with you. I love reading everyone’s entries and I got a lot of new book recommendations as well.
I’ve never done a TBR before because I don’t like to plan what I’m going to read ahead of time but I think planning ahead of time is easier because it will make me stick to the schedule of days that I have to finish the book by and I will therefore read more books. So welcome to my first ever TBR! I plan to hopefully read a total of at least 10 books this August. I’m hoping I surpass this because it is the summer holidays and I do have a lot more time. Let’s get going with my TBR.
The first book I plan on finishing is Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead. This book came out on the 29th July but I unfortunately had to wait 2 extra days to read it due to being busy. I’m currently reading this but I’m not very far in. Since it is Richelle Mead and bloodlines and since I’ve been waiting for this book for months, I shall hopefully finish it very soon.
The second book is another one that I’ve started but I haven’t finished and that book is Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. This book actually isn’t released until September but I received a copy via netgalley. This is my first Scott Westerfeld book and I’m really enjoying it. It’s just slightly confusing and quite long. Hopefully I won’t take too long reading this book.
The next book I have to read is another proof copy and that is In A Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis. This is the second book in the Not A Drop to Drink duology and isn’t released until September but I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy. I shall be reading this very soon especially since I really enjoyed Not A Drop to Drink(check out my review here).
The next book I plan on reading is Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I have yet to get my hands on a copy of this book but I shall be soon. I AM FINALLY GOING TO READ THIS SERIES. This is apparently a great YA fantasy and I love me some YA fantasy so I’m excited. Hopefully, I’ll be drawn in and I will read it extremely quickly.
The next book I plan on reading is Just Like the Movies by Kelly Fiore. This is another cutesy YA contemporary and I love them. I read this romances quite quickly so hopefully I’ll read it in a day.
The next book I plan on reading is an August release and that is Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. IT’S COMING OUT THIS MONTH AND YOU CAN BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR THAT I’M GOING TO BE READING IT ON THE DAY. The amount of excitement that I have for this book is unreal and I just need it ASAP.
After Isla, I need to read Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. I need to read this over the holidays for English so I shall definitely be reading it at some point this month.
Then since I’ll be going on holiday, I’ve picked three quick and easy books that I should hopefully fly through. The first is Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins. There was a lot of hype about this book when it originally came out so I really want to read it. This is apparently a very funny book and I generally fly through those books easily. The next book is Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. I’ve never read a book by Morgan Matson and this is her latest one. There has also been a lot of hype around this one since it came out and it’s again another contemporary which I shall hopefully fly through. The final book I have planned for this month is Alienated by Melissa Landers. This is a YA paranormal romance I believe and if it is anything like the Vampire Academy series in terms of pacing, I should hopefully fly through it really quickly.
That’s all the books I have planned for this month but I shall hopefully be receiving some books via Bookbridgr soon so I might end up reading those since they are review books. As part of my August wrap up, I’ll compare what I read to my TBR to see how well I stuck to it. Hopefully I’ll stick to it but also read more.
