May TBR List…books books books whoooo!

Good Friday folks! It’s a beautiful day out but I am inside tidying the explosion my tiny humans make ten times daily. How was your week? How is your Friday going so far and what are your plans like this weekend?

Most Importantly….what are you reading????

I am currently reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I’ve actually started this book maybe a week ago or almost a week ago but I’m reading super slow….I get so tired at night(ugh) especially now that my toddler has learned to climb out of her crib.(Sigh) Hopefully I can make some headway with this book in the next couple of days so I can get started on my May reading.(yay!)

Note: I don’t complete my entire TBR list each month(womp womp womp) but I do get two or three of it crossed off. I’m always hauling books so I’m not going to unrealistically set a goal of twenty books. I’ll share a few that I’m hoping I will get into before the end of May. By the way, have you readers set reading challenges for the year? I’ve set a fifty book challenge and I am down thirteen so far(not very good) but we’ll see. No pressure!

I do like to mix up my reading as I read everything from romance to horror to fantasy etc etc and most recently I’ve been feeling the need to revisit a few classics as well as integrate children’s literature into my reading.

  1. Confess by Colleen Hoover
  2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (I did start reading this but I shelved it to read Miss Peregrine’s ooops!)
  3. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  4. The Mortal Instruments Books 3-6 (yes, I haven’t read them yet although it’s one of my favorite series) – City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls, City of Heavenly Fire
  5. R.L. Stine – I do want to read a few R.L Stine books in the Fear Street City really soon but I’m not sure which ones yet.

Have a great weekend! xo Coffee Doll

What’s on My Bookshelf? January 2017

door-881588_1920.jpgLast year(2016) I posted what’s on my bookshelf and it was on my electronic bookshelf at the time, however I had no intentions of finishing said books during 2016. Yes, I know, I’m a book hoarder. I need to collect everything for future reading, I just need to, else I’ll feel incomplete. I currently feel incomplete as I don’t have the first book of the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series yet, but soon that shall be rectified.

These are the books I currently have lined up on iBooks. There are hundreds on my kindle app but I won’t count the here as I read those with a different agility and can knock off on average like three a week with breaks in between. Some of these books are older ones that I wish to revisit or  I just have not read yet.

I am currently reading: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer. It’s the second installment of this series. I read the first one sometime last year but since then I’ve been reading a lot of dark/historical romance on kindle. This series is a futuristic take on some of our most popular fairy tales with a sci-fi spin on it. Cinder was based on Cinderella of course and Scarlet is based on Red Riding Hood. I will review the entire series when I have completed it. Also on my to be read list is the third and fourth installment of this series: Cress and Winter.

The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien. This one I think is self-explanatory as we have all heard of it. I will however post a review when I’m finished. I read this almost fifteen years ago and I feel like it’s high-time I reread it.

The Stand by Stephen King. A post-apocalyptical novel where most of the human population dies due to the release of a biological weapon.

The Handmaiden’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. A young woman is forced to become a handmaiden for a couple that can’t bear a child. Soon after she is lured into ellicit affairs. I’m a little iffy about the ending as I do have an idea that it might be an unclear one but we’ll see.

Indignation by Philip Roth. I don’t know much about this book. I saw the trailer for the movie last year and felt like I needed to read the book before I watch the movie. There’s a spark that happens when based on a book flashes on screen. I think this is about a young Jewish college student but that’s about all I know.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. While looking at other people’s to be read lists on Youtube, I saw this one come up twice. I believe this one is a romance between two young people that’s struggling in their own lives. The girl’s parents are to be deported and the boy’s family is pressuring him to become a doctor. Based on the reviews for this book, I’m pretty excited about this one.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book 1: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan. A fantasy novel based on Norse Mythology, told in first person by Magnus Chase, a sixteen year old homeless orphan. I will be reviewing this book in depth after reading.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book 2: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan. A fantasy novel based on Norse Mythology, told in first person by Magnus Chase, a sixteen year old homeless orphan. I will be reviewing this book in depth after reading.

Lives of the Mayfair Witches by Anne Rice: The Witching Hour, Taltos and Lasher. About a family of witches and a spirit that had guided their fortunes for generations.
