December TBR [2017]

Copia de Copia de SPRINGTIME (2)

Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of November, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. OK, something very weird has happened and suddenly we’re in DECEMBER !, OMG, I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by, I hope everyone has had a great year, and enjoy this last month!.
Well, let’s focus on the readings I plan for this month, I have 5 books to show you, 5 very different books, as I always like to vary.
I know I told you that my Goodreads Challenge was 70 books, well, I decided to lower it to 65, I don’t want to sound like a cheat lol. But the Goodreads Challenge always makes me very anxious, and I really don’t want to worry about it this month, because I know I’ll be busy, with holiday preparations and all that, so basically I don’t try to excuse myself, but I think that even when I probably get to 70 books read, I don’t want to press myself too much, you know?.
I hope you’re doing great with your challenges!, I would love to know :). Now, without further ado, I’ll show you the books I plan to read this month, let’s start!

Black Dawn by Mallory McCartney

33851538The end of an Empire, The rise of a Queen

Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory’s arrival she will discover she is the long lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne. 

With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

Some things are better left in the shadows. 

Goodreads

This book is more like a short story because it has only 180 pages, so I’m very interested to see how a plot that sounds so complex is handled in so few pages, “The end of an Empire, The rise of a Queen”, Wow that sounds so good, I’ve read quite positive reviews, so I’m very curious about it


Pretty Dead Girls by Monica Murphy

32972117Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.

In the peaceful seaside town of Cape Bonita, wicked secrets and lies are hidden just beneath the surface. But all it takes is one tragedy for them to be exposed.

The most popular girls in school are turning up dead, and Penelope Malone is terrified she’s next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to a boy from her physics class. The one she’s never really noticed before, with the rumored dark past and a brooding stare that cuts right through her.

There’s something he isn’t telling her. But there’s something she’s not telling him, either.

Everyone has secrets, and theirs might get them killed. 

Goodreads

These last months I’ve been in the mood to read this kind of mystery and suspense books, and that humor hasn’t changed yet, so I stumbled upon this book that will be released in the month of June 2018, and I must say it sounds as something that I’ll enjoy: “Everyone has secrets, and theirs might get them killed.”, I mean, YES,please. Plus, isn’t such a long book either, only has 300 pages and although I’ve heard almost nothing about it or the author, I’m really excited to read it

Poison Study (Poison Study #1) by Maria V. Snyder

60510Choose: A quick death…Or slow poison…

About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She’ll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.

And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly’s Dust—and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.

As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can’t control. Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren’t so clear…

 Goodreads

I’ve heard so many incredible things about this book! It’s kind of terrifying to read such a well-known and loved book, but I’m also super excited, the promise of the book sounds incredible and everyone has recommended this book to me for years, so I feel that it’s time to read it, I know it’s a trilogy, but now there are a million books more lol. I have no idea how they work or their order so if you know I would love to you to tell me in the comments 🙂



I need to read them right now

The Rose Society (The Young Elites #2) by Marie Lu

23846013May contain Spoilers from the first book

Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.

Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she flees Kenettra with her sister to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good when her very existence depends on darkness?

Bestselling author Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites. 

Goodreads

The cover is SO COOL, I need to read it, I can’t wait to continue with this story,I want to know what will happen with the characters and the plot, you know that I’ve enjoyed a lot of the first book, and now that I’m more familiar with this world, I feel that I’ll enjoy even more of this one. Plus, The Young Eites epilogue has left me very intrigued and with a million questions, I just need to start with this one as soon as possible


The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

32613366Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life. 

Goodreads

OMG the time has come!, I really can’t finish the year without having read what I think is the most loved and popular book of the year. I don’t even have to tell you that I’ve heard incredible things about it, because I’m sure you too, and it’s realy difficult to find a negative review of this book, which is really impressive. I can’t be more excited, it touchs very strong and sensitive issues so I’m really interested, Wish me luck I’m a little nervous, but hopefully I’ll enjoy it as much as everyone else

  1. I got this. Okay, first, 65 books is awesome so don’t feel bad about making that your new goal. So long as you enjoy what you read, you’re fine. Also, think about how many people there are in the world who maybe read one book a year.

    Next, when it comes to Maria V Snyder’s books, read the Study trilogy: Poison Study, Magic Study, and Fire Study. Then technically you should go to the Glass trilogy: Storm Glass, Sea Glass, and Spy Glass. After that you can go to the Soulfinders trilogy, which is also the second Study trilogy: Shadow Study, Night Study, and Dawn Study. I hope that helps with your reading.

    And yes, I am doing really well with my Goodreads Reading Challenge; I just increased my goal again. Months ago it was set at 75, then I changed it to 100, then 125, and now it is up to 135. So it’s been a good year for reading.

    • You’re the best! Thanks for your words, you’re right! To think that there are people who actually only read 1 book at year is so weird 😧 lol. It’s super useful that you’ve explained to me how reading them 😄. YAY !, you’re doing great with your Goodreads Challenge, Congrats! I hope you have an amazing Reading Month💕

      • Aww, shucks. You’re welcome. And yeah, I don’t know how people go a year not reading a book or only reading one. I feel awful if I only read 3 books in a month; I can’t imagine reading so little in a YEAR.

        And I’m glad I was able to help with the reading order. I have pretty much all of Snyder’s books and I really enjoy them. So if you end up liking these, I’d also recommend her Healers trilogy: Touch of Power, Scent of Magic, and Taste of Darkness.

  2. I really wanted to read Black Dawn but I never realized it was only 180 pages. I was going to get it in as a physical copy but now I think I am going to get an ebook.

  3. Hello Sofii!
    Yes I felt exactly the same way! Where has 2017 gone?! I am also prepared for less reading this month, because December is always so hectic! I don’t think you should fret too much about changing your Goodreads goal because being able to read 65 books a year is already very awesome!
    I’ve heard about Poison Study, which sounds like an interesting book to me as well. Looking forward to hearing how you like this one 🙂

  4. Oohhh I really need to read The Hate U Give too! I lowered my challenge from 50 to 30 when I had a reading slump the past 6 months or so… Don’t feel bad about it ❤ I’m continuing my reread of the Vampire Academy series this month 😀

  5. I’ve read both The Poison Study and The Hate U Give, the latter one of my favorites! Poison Study is fine but I thought it was a bit slow paced. Hope you enjoy your other books! Happy December. 🙂
