Golden Girls Galentine’s 2021 TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! If you didn’t know, I’m partciatping in the Golden Girls weekend edition. This is the first round of this readathon in 2021 and it’s set during Galentine’s Day weekend. The round will be taking place for February 12th until February 15th with a focus on certain episodes. Basically, it’s a chance to read and watch if you want to.

Above is a list of the challenges and the episodes that they’re pulled from. For me, I’m going to try and watch the episodes along with reading the books. I do have plans on the last two days of the readathon but I like my odds so let’s get into my TBR.

Guess Who’s Coming to the Wedding?: A book set around a wedding

34629572. sy475

The first book I chose is Better At Weddings Than You which is a book I have on my Kindle and I’m super excited for. I honestly don’t know much about this book aside from the fact that I think it’s a romance between two wedding planners. Either way, it seems like it’s going to be a light and fun romance which is perfect for Valentine’s Day weekend.

The Competition: A book with a bet or game

55052300. sy475

The book I’m choosing for this prompt is Truth or Dare by Danielle Allen. This book is about a group of old college friends who are playing truth or dare before a wedding so this could actually be doubled up. Either way, I’ve had this one on my TBR forever and have yet to pick it up so I need to hold myself accountable and finally do it.

A Little Romance: A book with less than 200 pages

51256582. sy475

The next book I’m going with for this prompt is A Dirty Valentine by Nicole Falls. This is a book in her Sexy Holiday Shorts series. I read her Thanksgiving one and loved it so I figured it’d only be right to read her Valentine’s Day one. This one is also less than 50 pages so it definitely counts for this prompt.

The Flu: A “contagious” book you see everywhere

34466860. sy475

The book I chose for this prompt is Giant Days Vol 6 which is an incredibly hyped comic series about best friends in college. I usually read this around this time of year so this is the perfect book to use. Personally, I really enjoy this series and I can’t wait to read more of it. Hopefully I’ll end up finishing the series within the next year or so but I’m going to go slow and just tackle this one for the weekend round.

Anyways, those are the books I have picked out for the Golden Girls Galentine’s weekend readathon. Even though I have plans and know I’ll have to work, I’m hoping I can end up getting them all done. Plus I’m already planning on reading a book everyday in February so these should be solid and quick reads for me to get done.

January 2021 TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Welcome to my first TBR of the year. For this year, I’m doing something a little bit different. Every month, Ellyn and I are doing the Love/Hate Challenge which is inspired by Emma from Drinking By My Shelf and Emma from Emma Tobias. For Ellyn, we’re going with two books and two movies, one of which we loved and one of which we hated. Basically, the other person has to guess which one we loved and which one we hated.

For January, we decided to do 2020 Releases. I’ll link Ellyn’s post when it’s up but let’s get into the two books she picked out for me so we can kick off my TBR for this year. 🙂

45754981

1. The Glass Hotel

I’ve never read anything by Emily St. John Mandel so I’m curious to see what this book is about. I’m also curious which side this falls on for Ellyn. I know it’s going to be out of my comfort zone either way but let’s get into the second book she has picked out for me.

45010932. sy475

2. Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability, and Making Space

The second book she has picked out for me is Disfigured by Amanda Leduc. Once again, this is another one that’s out of my comfort zone, but I’m excited to give it a try. I also know it’s under 300 pages so I’m excited to pick it up and see where I think it falls on Ellyn’s scale.

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

The next section of my TBR is for the Pop Culture Readathon. This round, it’s all about 80’s movies which is an amazing topic although not the most diverse. For this round, I’m going to be double-dipping and trying to include as many reads for the #SnowInLoveBingo board as I can.

For this round, I’m going to be doing the Brat Pack bingo board which I’ll feature below this so you can see the prompts and I can get into the books I have picked for them. 🙂

Pretty In Pink: Pink Cover

53851680. sy475

This is my first double dip for both readathons and it’s Rapper’s Delight by Kenya Goree-Bell. I saw this cover months ago and I’ve been eager to read it. While it does feature pink and purple, I think it works for this prompt and I’m happy to finally be getting to it.

Can’t Buy Me Love: Fake Dating

54698575. sy475

The next book is another double-dip and that’s Make A Scene by Mimi Grace. I read this author’s debut and absolutely loved it. This one is a fake dating romance between two business owners and that’s really all I know. I do love the cover though so it was an easy pick for this one.

Sixteen Candles: # in the Title

43699955. sy475

This one might be cheating a little bit, but I’m still counting it. I’ve been wanting to read all of Jackie Lau’s backlist since my library has basically all her books. This one is a romance between a guy who owns a tech company and a girl who owns a pie shop which sounds delightful. Plus pi is technically a number so I’m counting it.

Say Anything: Opposites Attract

55814660. sy475

The next book I have on my TBR for this is His Beauty by Jack Harbon. I know this is a beast/human romance so I’m counting that as opposites attract. I might be wrong there, but once again, I’m just going with what I think. Seems like it’s going to be a fun sexy time which I can’t get enough of.

The Breakfast Club: Fave Character Trope

45143759

For this one, I’m going with Diana: Princess of the Amazons which is another double-dip but this time, it’s for the next round of GraphicsAThon. After watching the new Wonder Woman movie, I’m excited to read this take on her story and to see a younger version of Diana.

Duckie Dale: Unrequited Love

I don’t have one for this so I’m hoping that I end up finding a book for it or that someone has one to recommend.

Teen Witch: Teenage Magic User

36482829

For this one, I’m double-dipping for GraphicsAThon and that’s Aquicorn Cove which is another one by Katie O’Neill I’ve been dying to read. I’m pretty sure this features magic in some capacity so I’m counting it for this prompt.

The Heathers: Bright Cover/Spine with a Dark Plot

50689389

For this one, I decided to go with Snapped by Alexa Martin. This cover is incredibly colorful and bright but with a lot of darker/hard-hitting plot points so I’m including it for this prompt. Hopefully it ends up being as hard-hitting as everyone says or features some dark moments because I really want to finish out this series.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: Plot in/Author from Chicago

31207017

The book I chose for this prompt is Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed. I’ve never read anything by this author and I know for a fact that it was hyped a few years ago so I know my library will have it. I’m not a big YA reader anymore so this seems like it could either change my mind or keep my reading on the path it’s been going.

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

Those are all the books I have picked out for January. I might end up doing the bonus challenge for the Pop Culture Readathon but we’ll see. Either way, I wanted to get this TBR out and hopefully, hold myself accountable for finishing all of these books this month.

Smutathon TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Earlier this year, you saw me post about Smutathon and how much I enjoyed it so it’s no surprise that I’d participate in their latest round. For this one, the round is going to be from December 18th until December 20th which is shorter than normal. However since smut is usually quick to read, it makes sense.

I’m going to try and go with six books for this round so basically I’d have to read 2 books a day to achieve my goal. I’m going to cross my fingers and hope that I end up completing the challenges I have picked out. If you want to know more info and see the challenges, then be sure to check out the Twitter thread they posted. 🙂

Bad Boy/Girl

52641926. sx318 sy475

The book I chose for this one is Learn My Lesson by Katee Robert. I’ve been saving this book to read for this readathon and I’m SO excited. It’s also an m/f/m romance which I’ve been loving this year. Personally, I’m just SO hyped to finally get to this.

Author You Love

52244866. sx318 sy475

The next book is another one I have on my Kindle and that’s Neighborly by Katrina Jackson. She’s one of my favorite romance/erotica authors and I’m honestly so excited to finally be getting to this one, too. She always writes such incredible chemistry between characters and I adore basically everything I’ve read from her.

New-To-You Author

53331763. sy475

For this one, I chose Neighbors Know My Name by Tya Marie. I’ve never read anything by Tya Marie before but I saw this title and this cover and grabbed it. At the time, it was a freebie on Kindle and I’m pretty sure it’s about a girl hooking up with her neighbor. Either way, I’m here for it and I can’t wait to read it.

Winter/Holiday

53408227. sy475

Last month, I read Your Dad Will Do which is the first book in this series and enjoyed it so I’ve been anxious to pick up the next book. This one is another m/f/m romance which sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Katee Robert is like the queen of writing smut and honestly, I know this one will be SUPER hot which is exactly what I want.

Forced Proximity

17948528

The next book I chose for this is another one I’ve had on my Kindle and that’s Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye. This book is a romance between two people who get stuck in an elevator together and hook up, I’m pretty sure. I know a lot of people read this for the last round which is what inspired me to buy it. With that being said, hopefully I love it as much as everyone else did.

One Word Title

55779209. sy475

The final book I have on my TBR is Ate by Rilzy Adams. I’ve had this one on my Kindle since it came out and I’ve been eager to read it. This is super short and I think it features a romance between a girl and a personal chef she hires?? Either way, it seems like it’s going to be hot and spicy like all of Rilzy Adams’ books are. If I don’t get to this one, I might sub it in for Ho! Ho! Ho! which is her Christmas short.

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

Those are the 6 books I have picked out for this round of Smutathon. I’m crossing my fingers I can get to all of them. I tried to pick books that were all under 200 pages and I think I succeeded so I’ll be able to finish two in a day. I also might shift my TBR depending on my mood but we’ll see.

Romance Takeover Readathon Round 2 TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! It’s been a while since I’ve taken part in a readathon and I decided it’s time I change that. Personally, I have a handful of books I want to get check off TBR before 2020 ends. This year was shitty and it would be nice if I could accomplish those few goals. For me, that’s exactly what I’m using this readathon for as most of the prompts are pretty easy to adapt. 🙂

For this round, there are six hosts and the entire point of the readathon is to read romance so I’m obviously down. You can check out Jenn’s video below where she talks about the finer details. This round is taking place from November 29th until December 11th and it’s basically about reading romance/having fun. For this post, I’m going to be talking about the prompts I plan on using to help lower my TBR. 😛

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

Prompt 1: Read a romance that’s been on your TBR for six months or more

48747627. sy475

The first book on my TBR has to be Mangos and Mistletoe by Adriana Herrera. This is an f/f Christmas romance and I’m pretty sure it’s set during a baking reality show. It seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun and it’s one I’ve been hearing a lot about within the last year so I’m hyped for it.

Prompt 2: Read a 5-star predicted read

53491996. sy475

The book I chose for this prompt is The Gift by Rilzy Adams. I’ve given all of Rilzy Adams’ books 5-stars and this one seems like it’s a lot different. However, it seems like it’s going to be incredibly emotional yet a beautiful story. Either way, I want to get it read before the end of the year.

Prompt 3: Read a library book

40947502. sy475

The library book I decided to read is Marriage of Unconvenience by Chelsea M. Cameron. I’ve been eyeing this book at my library and it finally doesn’t have any holds on it. I know this is an f/f marriage of convenience and I’m super excited for it. It’s been a while since I read some queer romance so this was a must-add.

Prompt 4: Read a diverse book

55600142. sx318

The next book I have on my TBR for this readathon is Booked For Christmas by Lily Menon. I’m pretty sure this is her first foray into the adult romance world and this book follows a writer and her worst critic getting trapped in her cabin during a storm. It seems like it’s going to be a really fun and hopefully, sexy read. Plus it’s a relatively short one so it’ll be a quick one.

Prompt 5: Reread a favorite romance

50027029. sy475

I don’t even have to get into details with this one. This’ll be my third time reading it and I’m super excited to read it again. 🙂 🙂

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

Those are just some of the books I plan on reading for this round. I’m sure I’ll end up reading more but those are the books I have planned. I’m excited to participate in this round and I feel like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Plus I have a ton of Christmas content planned for next month so if you love Christmas, then get excited.

#NovellaNovember 2020 TBR

When I was on vacation, I saw this video posted about #NovellaNovember. Since then, I’ve been curious about it and have been wanting to participate. When I’m writing this post, I’ve actually already read 2 novellas so I have a head start. However, I knew I wanted to write a full blog post about the novellas I plan on reading for each of the prompts.

Before I get into the bingo board and my picks, I wanted to shoutout both Dana and Kelly who are hosting it. I’m subscribed to Dana on YT and I plan on following both of them on Instagram after I type this up. You can find all of the info on the post I’m linking below including the bingo board.

Prompt 1: BIPOC Author

42863308. sy475

Kicking things off is the next book in the Tale of Two Cities series. This one is centered around Thanksgiving and you’ll notice I also mentioned it in my November TBR. I’m pretty sure this is Black love and I know that the author, Alexandra Warren is Black so it fits for this prompt.

Prompt 2: Group Read

51912023. sx318 sy475

For Dana’s group read pick, she went with A Match for Thanksgiving by Jackie Lau. I actually bought this book not too long ago on my Kindle since it was free. Since I’ve been in the mood for Thanksgiving romances, this is going to be perfect. Plus it’s only around 100 pages so it should be a pretty quick one.

Prompt 3: Part of an Anthology

55206842. sy475

Originally, I had another book picked out for this one but my library decided to surprise me and my hold came off this. I’m in a big holiday mood to boot so this is going to be perfect. I also know it’s focused on holidays that aren’t mainstream and honestly it sounds so good.

Prompt 4: Dana or Kelly Rec

36615627. sy475

For this one, I’m going with one of Dana’s recs and that’s My Lady’s Lover by Nicola Davidson. I’ve read Nicola Davidson before and really enjoyed her writing style so I’m excited to read this one. I’m also pretty sure this one is an f/f romance so that’ll be a nice change of pace.

Prompt 5: Holiday Romance

48732871. sy475

If you saw my November TBR, then you’ll know I put this one on there since it’s a Thanksgiving romance. Pretty self-explanatory with this one lmao.

Prompt 6: New-To-You Author

7846310. sy475

Once again, this one is another overlap from my November TBR. I’ve never heard of Mahogany SilverRain until I found this book so it’s safe to say she’s new to me. I’m curious to see if this book ends up being as wonderful as the cover.

Prompt 7: Historical Romance

33844738. sy475

Speaking of Nicola Davidson, I have the rest of the Fallen series on my Kindle and I really want to read them. These are such fun, shorty and smutty historical reads so what’s not to love? I have no idea who this book follows or if it’s still set in the same place. Either way, I’m still excited to read it.

Prompt 8: LGBTQ+ Rep

52301457. sx318 sy475

The novella I’m using for this prompt is Bear With Me by Lucy Eden. If you saw my post on Wednesday, then you’ll know my full thoughts. I’m not sure if I mentioned it in my post or not but the MC Chellie is bisexual. I can count this as one book down already. 🙂

Prompt 9: 2020 Release

55419210. sy475

For the 2020 release category, I decided to use My Husband, My Stalker by Jessa Kane. This was one of my vacation reads and I thought it was alright. The title pretty much tells you exactly what it is. It was a smutty and taboo novella which is what Jessa Kane is known for so no surprises there.

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

Anyways, those are all my Novella November picks. I absolutely love novellas so this challenge was right up my alley. This is also perfect since I’ll be watching a lot of movies this month so I’ll want to be reading shorter books. Honestly, I’m just happy to be doing a reading challenge as I’ve had a lot of fun with them in 2020.

5 books I want to read before 2020 ends

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I’ve been wanting to do this post as I’ve actually made a post for it on Notion. Also lately, I’ve been loving Notion to help me get organized with some longer blog posts. This one isn’t technically long but it’s not something I want to keep in my planner. With this, I can just move to the other tab and then go look on Goodreads for pics of the books.

Enough about Notion, these are 5 books I plan on reading before the end of 2020. I honestly feel like 2020 can’t end soon enough. However, I have to say that this is probably my best reading year ever in my life. With that being said, let’s get into the books I plan on reading before the year ends.

40076537

1. Time of Our Lives

One book I’ve been avoiding for most of 2020 is Time Of Our Lives by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka. I’ve read all of their books together so I’m not sure why I haven’t picked this one up yet. Either way, I plan on reading this before they release their next book in 2021. This one seems like it could end up being a solid read but probably not as incredible as the other ones I’ve read by then. Either way, I love this cover and I’m excited.

51901147. sy475

2. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (The Hunger Games #0)

The next book is another one I’ve been dragging my feet on reading. I’m sure I don’t need to get into much detail about this one. It was a super hyped release in 2020 and I really need to get it done. I’m just nervous about how good it will be and if it’ll end up making Snow a likable character. I’m sure he won’t be but I’m still anxious lmao. I just need to pick it up already.

53491996. sy475

3. The Gift (Falling like a Johnson #1)

The next book I want to read before 2020 ends is The Gift by Rilzy Adams. Rilzy Adams is quickly becoming one of my new favorite authors and I want to read the rest of her backlist. While most of her books are light-hearted and fun, I know this one is incredibly emotional and will likely rip my heart out. Nevertheless, I’m determined to get through it so I can read the lighter and happier books in the series.

42273779. sy475

4. Can’t Text This (Texting #3)

I feel like I’ve talked about this book in my last three posts lmao. Basically, it’s a way to hold myself accountable to finally pick it up. I’ve already talked about this book enough and I just need to read it. I won’t say anything else about it because I’m sure you all already know lmao.

52641926. sx318 sy475

5. Learn My Lesson (Wicked Villains #2)

The last book on my 2020 TBR list is Learn My Lesson by Katee Robert. I read Desperate Measures earlier this year and LOVED it. I really enjoy how Katee Robert takes our favorite Disney villains and makes them kinky. It’s such a treat that we all get to partake in but this one sounds especially spicy. It’s a romance between Meg, Hercules and Hades and honestly, I’ve been all about the poly romances this year. I can only hope there’s gonna be another round of Smutathon before the year ends 😉

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

Those are the 5 books I want to read before 2020 ends. I’m hoping I can get to all of them even though they’re almost all longer books. Either way, I’m excited to hopefully finish them all and start with a clean slate in 2021. Plus with this dumpster fire year almost behind us, who can blame me?

November 2020 TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I know I said this in my last post but I’m still on vacation and I’m so excited. With that being said, I knew I wanted to post my TBR before I came back. I mean I’ll have access to my computer but I still want to take a short break from my writing. As for last month, I read a TON of books so I’m going to try to do more mood reading but I know that I want to read some Thanksgiving romances since it’s such a rarity. With that being said, let’s get into the books I have picked for November!

50689389

1. Snapped (Playbook #4)

The first book on my November TBR has to be Snapped by Alexa Martin. Everyone knows how much I love this series and it feels so bittersweet to be finishing it. This one is especially timely as it focuses on the first player to kneel during the national anthem and the employee who is supposed to “manage” him. Honestly, I love this series, Alexa Martin and her writing so I’m SO hyped to read this.

7846310. sy475

2. SAKE AND PUMPKIN PIE

This is one of the Thanksgiving romances I discovered on Kindle Unlimited. I don’t know if it’s because of the cover or the title but this book drew me in. It’s super short and it’s a Thanksgiving romance SO I’m here for it. Honestly, the next few books are going to be Thanksgiving romances because I’m just in a holiday mood right now.

42924732. sy475

3. Pumpkin and Spice (The Windy City Holiday Duet #1)

The next Thanksgiving romance I found was Pumpkin and Spice by Abby Knox. I don’t think I’ve read anything by Abby Knox before. I know this book is super short and insta-lovey but I want something quick and fun. November is probably going to be a busy month for me and I just want something that’ll make the holidays a bit more bearable.

42863308. sy475

4. A Tale of Two Cities: A Thanksgiving Novella

Last month, I read the first book in this Tale of Two Cities series and then I noticed there was a Thanksgiving one which got me hyped. Since then, I’ve been eager to read this and I’m especially excited to finally find more Thanksgiving romances. Plus it’s a Black love novella which is easily becoming one of my new favorite genres.

48732871. sy475

5. Pumpkin (Sweet Curves #2)

I read the first book in this series for Smut-A-Thon and I remembered it was actually a series featuring a Thanksgiving romance. Since then, I’ve been eager to read it. Even though this series is a little bit cheesy, it’s still fun. I honestly don’t have much to complain about with it but I do hope there’s another round of Smutathon coming soon lmao.

29568772. sy475

6. Her Naughty Holiday (Men at Work #2)

The last book on my November TBR is Her Naughty Holiday which is the second book in the Men at Work series. This one is a Thanksgiving romance that I read last year and enjoyed it. Since then, I’ve been wanting to re-read it and I’m SO happy that hoopla still has it. This is a romance with a slight age-gap and it features a virgin hero ending up with a single dad. Honestly, I remember really enjoying this and I’m excited to dive back into it.

Credit to Pure Imagination Blog

Those are 6 of the books on my November TBR. I’m sure I’ll read more but I know I wanted to add some Thanksgiving romances to the list. Hopefully, I’ll find more Thanksgiving romances and can do a recs posts focused on that theme.

Graphics-A-Thon Round 2 TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I teased this post earlier this week and it’s finally here. If you didn’t see my announcement post, I’m going to be co-hosting the Graphics-A-Thon with Ellyn and Destiny. This round, we decided to include some prompts along with a bingo board and we also have a Google Doc with recs. All of the info can be found on our Twitter.

If you need recs, you can check the Google Doc, my post, Ellyn or Destiny’s. With that being said, I don’t want to talk too much. This round starts on October 11th (12:00 AM, Your Time) and ends on October 19th (11:59 PM, Your Time.) With that being said, let’s get into my TBR picks for this round. 🙂

1. Read a graphic with BIPOC rep

42593023. sy475

For this one, I knew I wanted to feature an #ownvoices graphic novel and I found Black Mage on Hoopla. This one is about Tom, the first Black wizard admitted into a historically white wizard school. I took a look at the cover and immediately loved the art style. Either way, it looks like it’s going to be a very timely and fun read so I’m excited to dive into it.

2. Read a graphic with disability and/or mental health rep

42369064

The next graphic novel on my TBR is The Tea Dragon Festival by Katie O’Neill. I read the first book in this series earlier this year and loved it. This series is just so wholesome and it makes my heart so happy. I’ve been excited to finally continue with it and I knew that Graphics-A-Thon was the perfect way to do that. I know this series features both disability rep and mental health rep so it’s a twofer.

3. Read a graphic with queer rep

32337897. sx318

For queer rep, I had a few different options. Thankfully, it looks like my library is going to have My Brother’s Husband Volume 1 available. I’ve heard a lot of hype around this series and I’m excited to give it a try. This will also be my first try with a manga as I don’t think I’ve ever read one before. Either way, it seems like it’s going to be a fun series so I’m both excited and nervous to read this one. If it has too long of a hold, I’m going to use Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me.

4. Read a spooky graphic read

34550918

For my spooky read, I’m going with Behind You: One-Shot Horror Stories. This is another one I saw on Hoopla and knew it would be perfect for this prompt. I honestly don’t know much about this. All I’m saying is hopefully, it won’t be too scary so I can actually sleep at night after reading it. If not, then I guess I played myself lmao.

5. Read a graphic you predict will be 5 stars

52278999. sx318 sy475

I’m sure this will come as no surprise. I love romance and this is a graphic novel about being in love with your best friend. I’ve seen some of these comics online and have really enjoyed them. Snug seems like it’s going to be such a cute and lovely read so it was an easy pick for this prompt. This is another one I found on Hoopla and knew I had to add it to my TBR.

As for the bonus prompts, I have books picked out for this as well since I want to finish a book a day for this read-a-thon. I’m really crossing my fingers I can do that lmao.

6. Read a graphic that has or will have an adaptation

33906101. sx318

Ok, this one might be cheating a little bit. However, no other books on my TBR are or will be adapted. Wires and Nerves Volume 1 is part of the Lunar Chronicles series and that’s being adapted. It’s toeing the line but I’m a co-host so I say it’s fine. Lmao either way, this is a double-dip as I’m reading this for Scream-A-Thon, too. It seems like it’s going to be a fun journey back into the series Ellyn and I love so much.

7. Read a graphic with pink on the cover

35500976

I’m not sure why I chose this book to read but it seems like it’s going to be equal parts weird and fun. As far as I know, this is a romance between a girl and her bear boyfriend. It also features pink on the cover so it fit perfectly lmao. I’m just happy to find a place for it in this read-a-thon so I’m excited to read it.

8. Read a graphic that’s a genre or story you wouldn’t usually reach for

38452936. sy475

For the last prompt, I’m going with Superman Smashes The Klan. If you couldn’t tell by my TBR, I usually don’t reach for superhero comics or graphic novels. This one is going to be a huge departure from my TBR and what I usually pick up. I also think I’ve only read Wonder Woman comics as far as superheroes go. Either way, this one seems like it has potential to be a new favorite.

With all of the prompts out of the way, let’s get into my last book. I have a few options for this one so I’m going to feature them below. If you have feelings about any of them, feel free to let me know which one is the best of the bunch. 🙂

  • Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell
  • Witchlight by Jessi Zabarsky
  • Aquicorn Cove by Katie O’Neill
  • The Witches: The Graphic Novel by Pénélope Bagieu and Roald Dahl

Anyways, that’s my TBR for this round of the Graphics-A-Thon. I’m super excited to be co-hosting and even more excited start reading. If you’re participating, I’d love to know what you’re reading. I also plan on posting some updates to my Twitter and trying to get bingo on our bingo board.

October 2020 TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I know it’s a tad bit late, but I’m finally getting my October TBR up. I actually have another TBR post coming at the end of the week for the Graphics-A-Thon so be on the lookout. However, I’m also partcipating in another read-a-thon and that’s Scream-A-Thon. This is closely related to the Pop Culture Read-A-Thon and I’m pretty sure it’s run by the same person/people.

Either way, there’s a bingo board and you all know I love a bingo board. For me, I’m going to try for one bingo but I’ll probably end up reading a few more books so maybe I’ll go for two rows. Nevertheless, let’s get into the bingo board and the books I plan on reading. 🙂

Maureen Prescott: Paranormal Book

42508375. sy475

The book I chose for this one is Mirror, Mirror by Marie Harte. I think this is a book featuring a ghost and it comes to life if people have sex in front of the mirror. Either way, it sounds like it’s going to be a solid Halloween read and that’s what I’m here for lmao.

Woodsboro: Small town setting

48694922. sy475

The next book I chose is Tikka Chance on Me. I absolute love this cover and I’m pretty sure it takes place in a small town. I also think it’s an interracial romance between an Indian woman and a white guy. I’ve also heard it’s pretty steamy so I’m basically sold lmao.

Jill: World Wide Sensation/ Hyped Book

49398072

The hyped book I chose is When No One Is Watching by Alyssa Cole. This book has been talked about bloggers and booktubers I watch for months. Personally, I have a hold on it at the library and it’ll be coming off soon. It seems like it’s going to be another good Halloween read so I’m excited for it and to see if it lives up to the hype.

Stab-A-Thon: Reader’s Choice

45435164. sy475

For the “Reader’s Choice,” I’m going with a book I’ve had on my Kindle forever. It’s Hexes and Oh’s by Koko Brown and Taige Crenshaw. I’m pretty sure this is a romance between a witch and a guy she can’t stand. I knew as soon as I saw this prompt, I had to use this book since this seems like another solid Halloween read.

Scream: The TV Series /Read a spinoff book or series

29772863

I struggled coming up with a book for this prompt before it finally came to me as I loved the Lunar Chronicles. I still have yet to read this series though so I’m going to check it out and it pairs perfectly with Graphics-A-Thon.

This is a pretty short post but I don’t really have much to say about these books as I’m going into them not knowing much. Either way, I hope I can end up filling at least another row of books for Scream-A-Thon. I’d like to know if you’ve read any of these books and if so, what you thought of them.  Before you finish reading my post, please take the time to look over these attached links to help with Black Lives Matter.

August 2020 TBR

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! If you didn’t know, August is my birthday month so I’m just focusing on books I want to read and books I think I’m going to love. There are a lot of indie books coming out I want to read and some others I’m excited for. I’m also going to be participating in the Blackloveathon this month so I’ll have a separate post for that. (Update: Mina said she’s postponing this round until February but still look out for some reviews of Black romance I want to read this month.)

With that being said, let’s get into the six books I have on my TBR. I have more but I’m going to feature them in a post of their own. Either way, let’s get into the books I know I want to read in August. 🙂

1. Trouble & Strife (Chances Limited #2)

The first book on my TBR for August is Trouble & Strife by Lara Kinsey. I read the first book in this series last month and enjoyed it. Since then, I’ve been anxious to read Sidney’s story. I follow Lara Kinsey on Twitter and she’s been getting me really hyped to read this. It’s also novella length so it’s going to be a perfect short summer read for me.

2. Nordic Daddy (Business Trip Boyfriends #1)

The second book I want to read is another Lara Kinsey book. This one is the first in her Business Trip Boyfriends series. I don’t really know anything about this series except that it follows a single dad. I trust Lara Kinsey though so I’m excited to pick this one up. It’s also another super short read so it’ll be another quick one. I might even marathon these two as they can probably be read in a sitting each.

3. Jasmin’s Billionaire

The third book on my TBR is Jasmin’s Billionaire by Sookh Kaur. I read the short story that comes before this book and really enjoyed it. I’m curious to see if this book ends up being as delightful as the short story that came before it. The cover is super cute and I’m excited to see Jasmin’s story. I’m all about the cure romance vibes during my birthday month so I’m just ready.

4. Midnight Sun (Twilight #5)

The next book on my TBR is Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer. I’m sure this will come as no surprise as this book is going to be read by a lot of us. I know that Twilight isn’t nearly as beloved as it was back in the day. However, I’m super excited to read it and see things from Edward’s perspective. I’m also curious if we’ll end up getting another book after this one. Either way, it’s high up on my TBR.

5. Wonder Woman ’77 Volume 1

The next book I have on my TBR is a Wonder Woman comic. I was originally super excited to go see Wonder Woman 1984 but they pushed it back again. To make up for that, I knew I wanted to read something Wonder Woman related this month. I decided on Wonder Woman ’77 Volume 1. This series sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun and hopefully, super campy. Even though I’m not getting the movie, I’ll see have something WW to look forward to.

6. You pick: Lock Every Door or Wilder Girls?

The last book on my TBR is one I want you to pick for me. I read Riley Sager last month and want to read more of his backlist. However, I also want to read Rory Power’s books so you see where my problem is. If you’re reading my post and feel strongly about either of these books, make sure to vote for them down below. Whichever one gets more votes, that’s the one I’ll be reading. 🙂

Anyways, those are all the books I plan on reading not including the Blackloveathon. I’m super excited to get to these books. I can only hope that August is going to be another huge reading month for me.
