What should I read next?

Hi guys!

Some time ago I was inspired by BookTuber Wish Fulfillment to try a new way to choose what to read next. I never know what to read next, and choosing a book sometimes actually keeps me from reading. I just don’t know what to choose so I keep putting it off. Continue reading


June TBR (Pfft) Summer TBR (YES!)

I don’t usually post monthly TBRs because they always change. And sure enough, about a week ago I posted my June TBR and it’s already completely changed. I went to the library and got more books, which means those books take priority since I have to return them. So I thought, instead of doing a monthly TBR I should just do a Summer TBR.

These are the books I hope to read between June-August 31st.

Originally I had planned on reading:

DSC05907 I’ve read this book and it was awesome. 5/5









Then I went to the library and go these books:

DSC05912 I’ve read it and I loved it. 5/5









DSC05911 Currently reading it!










And then chose some more that I’ve been meaning to read for years.







Do you have a seasonal TBR or do monthly ones work better for you?


#AYEARATHON – Benchwarmers Days 4 & 5 update


I’m still reading Uglies. I’m at 41%. I haven’t read much this whole week. I have vacation but I’ve been using it to pack my things. Moving always takes time, but moving countries takes times and a lot of decision making. Getting things to the post office also takes forever if you don’t have a car. Anyway, the more I do read-a-thons, the more I realize that they’re not for me. I enjoy the month and year long ones because they give me a goal and plenty of time to read what I want, but the weekly and 24hr ones are hard for me. I like to read at my own pace and sometimes I just don’t feel like it. I think when I join read-a-thons I have this extra pressure which makes me read even less. Hmm… I’ll have to rethink how I read this year.

Anyway, I’m really enjoying Uglies! It’s a good book!!

My reading goal/challenge


*I’ve actually already read Chasing Vermeer, Warm Bodies and Carry On

I have 42 or was it 43?… I have 40 something unread physical books on my shelves at the moment and I only have until March 20th to read them. I’ll be moving countries then so I want to read as many books as possible so I can start sending them home. I don’t want to send them all now and not have any books at all with me. I just can’t do that.

It would be impossible for me to read 40 something books in 3 months so I decided to set a more possible goal instead. I will try to read 1 book per week, which means that I can read about 13 books before I have to send them home. This is not even close to 40 but 13 is already a bit of a challenge for me. I’m a slow reader, plus, I don’t like to read for long periods of time. I get tired and then I get headaches, and it’s just not fun. My main concern with this is falling into a slump. Forcing myself to read too much might result in that.

Woo! Wish me luck!

Christmas Bookathon Book List!

December is almost here and you know what that means~~ Book-a-thon time!!

This year I will be participating in the Christmas Bookathon on Goodreads! This is my first bookathon with challenges so I’m very excited. That being said, my main goal for this book-a-thon is to read some of the books I already have. This means that I won’t be able to do some of the challenges unless I buy new books, which I really don’t want to do. I have too many unread books just sitting on my shelf.

The Christmas Bookathon will start on December 1st, 12:00AM – December 31st, 11:49pm. Join us for some amazing bookish fun!

Listed are the challenges and the books I plan on reading! I’ll probably update this list again. The challenges without a book are the ones I probably won’t be able to complete.

1) Read a book with red AND green on the cover.

Warm Bodies by  Isaac Marion

(some words are in green!)

2) Read a book set during Christmas or a Christmas classic

Hogfather by Terry Pratchett


3) Read a hardcover or paperback with either WHITE, GOLD or SNOW on the cover

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

4) Read a book set in winter

5) Read a book that you recently got as a Christmas present or a book that was recommended to you by a friend

[Will add it once I get it]

6) Read an author you’ve never read before

Kasmah Forma by S. Vagus

7) Read a children’s book set in Christmas

Russell’s Christmas Magic by Rob Scotton

8) Read a book that’s been on your TBR since last Christmas

Mort by Terry Pratchett


9) Read a summer/holiday romance

10) Read a book that has a different cultural or religious aspect to your own

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

11) Read a book with the word Snow, Red, White, Green or Christmas in the title

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

12) As Christmas is the season of giving – Donate a book/books to your local charity, goodwill or secondhand bookstore and if you can find a good book there buy one in return and read it.

The TBR Book Tag!

I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I wanted to do the tag anyway. I love tags, they’re so much fun! I copied the questions from


1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I use Goodreads. I’m on it everyday multiple times a day. Unfortunately, every time I go on I add another book to my TBR, so it just grows and grows and grows.


2. Is your TBR mostly print or E-book?

Print! I only read ebooks if I have to.


3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

I’m very much a mood reader, so whatever I’m in the mood for.


4. A book that has been on your TBR the longest?

I’m not really sure but I think Wicked has been on my list the longest. I did start it once, got halfway done but dropped it. I do plan to finish it, I just need to feel motivated.


5. A book you recently added to your TBR?

The last three I added are:



6. A book strictly on your TBR strictly for it’s cover?

The Creeper Man by Dawn Kurtagich, I don’t know anything about this book, it hasn’t even been published yet, but the cover grabbed my attention. The fact that the title says “creeper man”, but has a picture of a girl is just so very interesting.


7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?

But… if I don’t plan on reading it…then why would it be on my TBR?


8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?

The sequel to The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I’ve been waiting for years for a sequel!! How much longer will I have to wait?!


9. A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you?

All the popular ones, seriously: The Hunger Games, The Mortal Instruments, Outlander, Fan Girl, Throne of Glass, The Maze Runner, the list goes on! The ones I’m most looking forward to reading are:



10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you? 

Clockwork Angel, because William… Also, because it’s an amazing book and series!


11. How many books are currently on your Goodreads TBR list?

There are 499 books on my TBR list. Will I ever to all of them? I sure hope so! It’s certainly a challenge that I’m willing to take head on! Just thinking about it makes me excited! Ooh~ I can’t wait! Must read now!
