To be read – June

To be read – June

I actually can’t believe I’m writing TBR June (even if we are almost half way now).. I swear it’s still January? This means I’ve been blogging for six months this month, it’s mad!

However, I’ve been seriously slacking on my reading and my book-related posts recently – I’ve been spending more time watching Youtube videos and Netflix and less time reading, but I’m going to fix that this month (with the exception of Orange is the New Black obviously).

You may have seen me mention in my May Favourites that I was loving finally reading Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I loved it that much that I’m currently on the second book, Walking Disaster. The book is your typical good girl meets bad boy kind of book but with lots of drama – and I love a bit of drama. However, the second book covers the same period of time as the first book, but it’s all from Travis’ point of view, as opposed to Abby’s. I really love it when books do this. I find the book really hard to follow if the POVs keep switching within the book, so actually having two separate books is a much better idea. It sounds kind of boring and repetitive, but actually seeing it from a different POV makes a whole other story. If you like a romance, this is definitely a book/series you should check out – especially if your in your late teens/early twenties, as it’s probably more relatable.

Also on my TBR for June are Morgan Matson’s books. I’ve just bought Since You’ve Been Gone, after wanting to buy it for ages (in fact I think it was on my March TBR). I’ve been kind of hoping the price would go down as it’s £8, but I caved this morning and bought it in Waterstones. It’s a YA book that sounds strangely similar to Paper Towns. The book is about to best friends and how when one of them (Sloane) goes missing and leaves behind a to-do-list that can supposedly bring back Sloane, wallflower Emily begins to follow the to-do-list.

I also really want to read The Unexpected Everything, by Morgan, this month. I’ve heard some fab things about this book and it was nominated for the Goodreads Choice Awards Best Young Adult Fiction, so it can’t be bad. It also has dogs on the front cover – a deciding factor, of course. It basically follows a girl, Andie, who seems to have an ideal and perfectly planned out life, but things don’t end up going to plan one summer and she ends up doing things she never would’ve even thought about before – including becoming a dog walker.

So this month I plan to finish Walking Disaster, and read the third book in the series, Beautiful Wedding (oops spoiler), followed by Morgan Matson’s Since You’ve Been Gone and The Unexpected Everything!

What are you planning to read this month? Let me know in the comments – I’m always grateful for book recommendations! Also, let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you thought of them! Thanks for reading!

To Be Read – March

To Be Read – March

I haven’t really posted about books yet on my blog – apart from my 2017 reading list which you can find here– and considering I read quite a lot I thought I ought to post more book-related things. So, I thought I’d do a little TBR in March post (how is it March already though?!) At the moment I’m reading about one book a week, so I’ve got four books on my list to read in March. So here’s my list along with a short description of each.

We Were Liars – E. Lockhart

A beautiful and distinguished family. A private island. A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy. A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive. A revolution. An accident. A secret. Lies upon lies. True love. The truth.

Beautiful Disaster – Jamie McGuire

Good girl, Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend. Travis Maddox is exactly what Abby needs – and wants – to avoid. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet.

Holding Up the Universe – Jennifer Niven

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed “America’s Fattest Teen.” But no one’s taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can’t recognise faces. When he meets Libby, the two find that the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours.

The Unexpected Everything- Morgan Matson

The politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised herself thinks everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future. But when things change she realises that if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that?

Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you thought, and let me know if at the end of March you’d like to see a review of the four. Also, if you click the titles of the books you can go check them out over on Goodreads. I’ve recently created a new Goodreads account which you can find here – follow me if you like, or just have a nose at what I’ve read/am reading etc. I haven’t quite got everything updated on there yet, but I’m working on it so keep an eye out.

Feel free to let me know in the comments what you’re planning to read in March. I’m always on the look out for more books to read so let me know what you want to read, or what you’ve already read in February! Thanks for reading and make sure you follow my blog for a post on Monday that’s going to be a huge haul of Busy B stationery products as they’ve really kindly sent me some things to review for them!
