Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of September, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. I have had a great month of August so this month I’m very relaxed, I feel that although I may read less than last month, what is important is that I want to enjoy them, no rush, you know. So I’m thinking about reading some ARCs this month, but after that, although I have some readings planned, I feel that maybe I change my mind during the month, since there are so many new releases this month!, it’s crazy and painful for my wallet lol. So although I will put here below some of my ideas nothing is 100% sure. Even so I’m interested in all the books that I add to my TBR always, so I’m sure I’ll end up reading them sooner or later, I can’t wait to tell you about them !. Let’s start!
Lighter Than My Shadow by Katie Green
Like most kids, Katie was a picky eater. She’d sit at the table in silent protest, hide uneaten toast in her bedroom, listen to parental threats that she’d have to eat it for breakfast.
But in any life a set of circumstance can collide, and normal behavior might soon shade into something sinister, something deadly.
Lighter Than My Shadow is a hand-drawn story of struggle and recovery, a trip into the black heart of a taboo illness, an exposure of those who are so weak as to prey on the vulnerable, and an inspiration to anybody who believes in the human power to endure towards happiness.
This is my first graphic novel ever, I’m very excited, I know that it has a slightly dark vibe since the story focuses on eating and mental problems but that has made me want to read it even more, so I hope it’s a good first experience
Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel
A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.
Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.
What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.
I love the cover guys, it’s really super aesthetic. In fact, I’ve already started reading this, and I’m enjoying it, even so, being honest, it’s something I’ve read before, the handsome and miterious guy who just moves to town, the non-popular girl who is beautiful but she doesn’t know it lol and all the paranormal thing happening around. Even so I feel it’s quite entertaining and somehow reminds me a bit of the Lux saga by Jennifer L. Armentrout. So we’ll see how it continues 🙂
When I Cast Your Shadow by Sarah Porter
A teenage girl calls her beloved older brother back from the grave with disastrous consequences.
Dashiell Bohnacker was hell on his family while he was alive. But it’s even worse now that he’s dead….
After her troubled older brother, Dashiell, dies of an overdose, sixteen-year-old Ruby is overcome by grief and longing. What she doesn’t know is that Dashiell’s ghost is using her nightly dreams of him as a way to possess her body and to persuade her twin brother, Everett, to submit to possession as well.
Dashiell tells Everett that he’s returned from the Land of the Dead to tie up loose ends, but he’s actually on the run from forces crueler and more powerful than anything the Bohnacker twins have ever imagined….
I’ve never read Vassa in the Night before, but still I think this sounds so good that I immediately call my attention, I haven’t seen many positive reviews, in fact people seem love or hate this book so I’ll see, hopefully enjoy it because I’m super excited to go for it.
Maybe I’ll Read ….
The Unbound (The Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab
May contain spoilers from the first book
Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books. Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.
Last summer, Mackenzie Bishop, a Keeper tasked with stopping violent Histories from escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to one. Now, as she starts her junior year at Hyde School, she’s struggling to get her life back. But moving on isn’t easy — not when her dreams are haunted by what happened. She knows the past is past, knows it cannot hurt her, but it feels so real, and when her nightmares begin to creep into her waking hours, she starts to wonder if she’s really safe.
Meanwhile, people are vanishing without a trace, and the only thing they seem to have in common is Mackenzie. She’s sure the Archive knows more than they are letting on, but before she can prove it, she becomes the prime suspect. And unless Mac can track down the real culprit, she’ll lose everything, not only her role as Keeper, but her memories, and even her life. Can Mackenzie untangle the mystery before she herself unravels?
With stunning prose and a captivating mixture of action, romance, and horror, The Unbound delves into a richly imagined world where no choice is easy and love and loss feel like two sides of the same coin.
Firstlife (Everlife #1) by Gena Showalter
NO SECOND CHANCE.
Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.
There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.
In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…
