JANUARY TBR


Can you hear last year's Goodreads challenge making fun of me while I cry desperately on the floor?

Because I can.

Alright, as I've already said multiple times, 2019 hasn't been the greatest reading year. I've read amazing books but aimed for a number I wasn't going to reach any time soon. But I tried. So, pat on the shoulder, we move on.

This year I'm not giving myself the pressure to read all of the books. I'll read whatever I feel like reading at the moment and if that means saying no to some Publishers that want to send books my way, let it be.
I'm changing my attitude to the world this year, I'm taking care of myself, I'm working on cool things, I'm trying to start a business and I want to write more so I guess I really need to read the books I'm most excited to read in that little time left.

I have a list. I love lists, I depend on them. Fully. I made one for all the books I want to get to this year, mostly older books, but it's not completely full so that I can add a new one here and there whenever I like. Being a book blogger means I also get sent books to review, so I'm making sure I do have the time to read them.

I'm keeping January TBR sweet and short because let's face it, it's the start of a new year, we all need a little bit of time to adjust and make plans and get excited, right?
I'm also currently trying to pick a book for the Book Club so I guess it makes three. But either way, I'm excited. I chose books that I'm excited about and that are fairly easy to read so that I can cross them off my list and start my new Goodreads challenge on a high note.

Queen of Air and Darkness

As I'm writing this post, I'm more than halfway through it so I guess I'm doing pretty good.
The fact that is a Cassandra Clare book helps a lot because I love that woman and worship her like a goddess.

I've already cried a lot, laughed a lot and I can't wait to know what is going to happen.
Also, this book specifically is so damn sexy! I bloody love it!
More sex in YA, please.

Chain of Gold is coming out in March and it's basically around the corner and I don't think I'm ready.
If you should know anything about me, is that I'm a sucker for Herondales (all of them!) specifically Will so the fact that the new trilogy will follow his kids makes my heart all fuzzy and I'll stop before I start crying. Again.


Who Put This Song On?

I started this book last year and read a few chapters and absolutely loved it!
It's about a black teenage girl searching for her identity and touches the topics of depression, black lives matter and mental health.

It's funny and sad at the same time because Morgan has a great sense of humour and she's absolutely funny and sharp.

I really can't wait to dive into it, as I think it's going to be one of the best books I will read this year.
It's one of those book everyone will relate to, in one way or another and maybe will make life a little easier and funnier.

*thanks to Atom for sending this book my way.
