Spring TBR / 20th of March – 21st of June 2017

1. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Kell is one of the last travelers–magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes connected by one magical city.

I have been wanting to read this completed Adult fantasy series for a while. The last one just came out and there is so much hype around this series. I really want to get to this series, so I can experience what booktubers and bloggers are raving about.

2. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I started reading Adult books this year. I want to continue reading Adult books with a Thriller/Mystery aspect so I picked out 3 to read in spring.. These three books are quite popular and got quite a lot of buzz recently or last year. I am excited to read Big Little Lies and watch the HBO series afterwards.

3. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

These books were on my list of favorite books of 2016. ACOWAR and Lord of Shadows are coming out in May so I want to re-read them both to refresh my memories before diving in their sequels.

4. Life of Pi by Yann Martel

I don’t have a lot to say about this one. It’s required reading so I am not looking forward to reading it.

5. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas, A Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh and Lord of Shadows by C. Clare

These are all my most anticipated releases of the year. I cannot wait to read these.

My 2 main goals for 2017 + TBR / better late than never

My 2 goals for 2017

  • Finish/catch up on series that I own

  • Take notes while I am reading and after finishing a book

Why?

I have been neglecting the series that I own these past years. I have a bad habit of starting a series but not continuing it because I don’t want it to be over. This results in countless unfinished series. I also want to start taking notes while I am reading because I am not able to write reviews if I don’t have any notes. I always think that I am going to remember everything after reading a book but that’s not the case. When I realise that I don’t remember any details , I just don’t write a review (also because I am lazy). I really want to change that because I had a lot of favorite books last year and I have not written any reviews for them so I can’t even explain why they were my favorite books.

My TBR for my first goal

Throwback Book Club TBR + Tag

Emma from EmmmaBooks , Michael from Michael the BookLion and Adam Silvera are starting a monthly book club starting January 2017.  The only rule is that you have to read a book(s) that is not  published in the year you are reading it/them. So everyone will be reading different books that they have been neglecting or are forgotten from the previous year. It’s a great book club to catch up on some series or to read books that were released in 2016.
