I’m really bad at sticking to TBRs, but seeing as I have 365 days in which to read the following, I’m hoping I’ll get to all of them in that time.
Here are some of the books I’m interested in reading in 2017.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.
I have read Cinder, which I really enjoyed, but it’s taken me ages to get around to the rest of the series. I’m usually quite underwhelmed by series and much prefer standalones, but this is one I really want to finish.
May was a good month for me for reading! I read a lot of books and, for the most part, really enjoyed them.
1. The Confessions of Katherine Howard by Suzannah Dunn.
Premise: The novel explores Katherine Howard’s before and during her marriage to the notorious Henry VIII.
Dunn is quickly becoming a new favourite historical author of mine. Her writing has a very modern tone without taking away from the Tudor setting. I didn’t enjoy this as much as I enjoyed The Lady of Misrule and I was disappointed by the ending, as I wanted to see how she handled Katherine’s execution.
Hey fellow bookworms! So I turned old a couple of weeks ago, and therefore have new books to show you, courtesy of my lovely family and friends!
I also ordered some books for myself in April, but they didn’t arrive until May so I’m including them in this book haul, hence why it’s humongous. I decided not to put descriptions for all of them as you’d probably get a bit bored of my rambling.
Now on to ALL THE BOOKS.
Thank you to Getting Through Anxiety for tagging me!
1. INITIAL ATTRACTION – A book you bought because of the cover?
I had heard of the book and wanted to read it, but I mainly bought it because it was cheap and I wanted to add to my collection of Penguin Modern Classics…
WWW Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. This is where you have to answer the following questions every Wednesday:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Technically still reading The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, though I haven’t picked it up for the last couple of nights. I’m not finding it particularly engaging, to be honest.
So I’m not allowed to buy books.
This is a rule I’ve imposed on myself since I realised I have more books on my shelves that I haven’t read than ones I have. That is a strong suggestion that I probably don’t need any more books.
But I WANT more books!!!
