Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of June, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. As you’ll have seen by the title this will be another very different TBR, and I’m super excited to see if it works, because if you think twice, this can be disastrous lol.
🌻 Last month I saw the booktuber Riley from the Riley Marie channel, which I love , doing this and I thought it sounded fun and I wanted to try this month, you know I love trying to do new things so that the TBRs are more fun and diferent, so I hope that you enjoy this with me.🌻
The truth is that I have so many options in my TBR and I’m in that kind of humor where I want to read them all lol, so I have to take advantage of that 😄
🌸 Well what I’ll be doing is that I’ll let Goodreads choose my TBR for this month, how will I do it? : Well, I’ll go to the “Want to read” list in Goodreads, I’ll pick to put the books sorted in a “Random” way and I’ll add that book that appears first, in the first line, to my TBR for this month. To choose the next book, the only thing I’ll do is refresh the page
I’ll refresh the page 3 times, I would love to do it more but there are already 2 books that I’ve chosen to read so with 3 more will be perfect.
I hope you understand the way I’ll do this, otherwise I recommend you see the Riley video, I left the link above, she explains it much better than me lol.🌸
In other news I have a very important test at the beginning of july, that’s why I will not choose alot of books, I will keep it in 5, the 2 that I’ve chosen, plus the 3 that Goodreads chose. I don’t really want to overdo by choosing thousands of books that I know I can’t read. That would be very stressful, and the last thing I need is to feel more anxious than I already feel
I’ll be studying a lot this month, I’m quite nervous so send me those positive energies 🤗
I’ll be choosing the books right now while I’m writing this, because I think it will be much more entertaining and you’ll get my most sincere reactions.
The only books that I will not read are those that haven’t come out yet
LET’S START GUYS !, I’M SO EXCITED 😂
The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy #1) by Katherine Arden
A magical debut novel for readers of Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, and Neil Gaiman’s myth-rich fantasies, The Bear and the Nightingale spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice.
A magical debut novel for readers of Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, and Neil Gaiman’s myth-rich fantasies, The Bear and the Nightingale spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice.At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn’t mind–she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, she loves the chilling story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. Wise Russians fear him, her nurse says, and honor the spirits of house and yard and forest that protect their homes from evil.
After Vasilisa’s mother dies, her father goes to Moscow and brings home a new wife. Fiercely devout, city-bred, Vasilisa’s new stepmother forbids her family from honoring the household spirits. The family acquiesces, but Vasilisa is frightened, sensing that more hinges upon their rituals than anyone knows.
And indeed, crops begin to fail, evil creatures of the forest creep nearer, and misfortune stalks the village. All the while, Vasilisa’s stepmother grows ever harsher in her determination to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for either marriage or confinement in a convent.
As danger circles, Vasilisa must defy even the people she loves and call on dangerous gifts she has long concealed–this, in order to protect her family from a threat that seems to have stepped from her nurse’s most frightening tales.
WOW this book sounds SO GOOD!, I’ve heard only incredible things about it. I understand that it is based on Russian myths, I can be wrong but I think it is. The synopsis is really engaging and is in fact a perfect book to read right now, because here in my country we are in autumn and the days are colder and shorter, so I feel it will be very atmospheric, I can’t wait. I’m happy with this first book, I have a good feeling about it and if I get to like it then I’ll have more to read because I see it will be a trilogy, which is fantastic
Dream a Little Dream (Silber #1) by Kerstin Gier
Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yes, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially the one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys conduct dark magic rituals.
The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But what’s really scaring Liv is that the dream boys seem to know things about her in real life, things they couldn’t possibly know–unless they actually are in her dreams? Luckily, Liv never could resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute….
OH GOD lol, This is one of those books that I don’t remember why I added it to my TBR in the first place. But I have to admit that the cover is absolutely beautiful, that may be a reason. It sounds pretty vague, I’m not sure how I feel about it, but I feel curious. it has a very good rating in Goodreads so I’ll give it a chance. I like that the promise has some of mystery on it …
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue (The Montague Siblings #1) by Mackenzi Lee
Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.
But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.
Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.
OMG this book terrifies me!. Honestly I’ve only heard how much people love the characters, and that’s all lol. I’ve heard that the author writes very well and that her writing style is very easy to read which is great because this book is huge, and I hope to get through it quickly and enjoy it as much as most of the people. I know that the characters are very well developed and as you know I’m a big fan of that, so I have a mixture of feelings between emotion and fear but I’ll be brave and I’ll go for it!. Wish me luck!
Continuing with this INCREDIBLE series
Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms #3) by Morgan Rhodes
Love, vengeance, and greed spark a deadly quest for magic in the third book of the Falling Kingdoms series
Prince Magnus has just witnessed torture, death, and miracles during the bloody confrontation that decimated the rebel forces. Now he must choose between family and justice as his father, the cruel King Gaius, sets out to conquer all of Mytica. All Gaius needs now are the Kindred—the four elemental crystals that give godlike powers to their owner. But the King of Blood is not the only one hunting for this ancient, storied magic. . . .
THE KRAESHIANS join the hunt. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the wealthy kingdom across the Silver Sea, charm and manipulate their way to the Kindred, proving to be more ruthless than perhaps even the King of Blood himself.
THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo and vengeful Jonas lead them, slaying with sweetness, skill, and a secret that can control Lucia’s overpowering magic—all so they can use the Kindred to win back their fallen kingdoms.
THE WATCHERS follow Melenia out of the Sanctuary. They ally in the flesh with King Gaius, who vows to use Lucia’s powers to unveil the Kindred.
The only certainty in these dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica. . . . but the four element gods of the Kindred have other plans.
I’m never ready for these books but at the same time I miss both the world and the characters when I’m not reading them, this story has quickly become an obsession and I need to continue to know what will happen with my babies 😰
A List of Cages by Robin Roe
When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he’s got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn’t easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can’t complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian—the foster brother he hasn’t seen in five years.
Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He’s still kindhearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what’s really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives…
This book was in my TBR last month and I didn’t get to read it, so I’m reading it right now, I don’t go much inside it, but I really feel it’s a book that makes me feel good, I don’t know why, but the writing style and the characters feel very warm for me, and I’m enjoying it … but I’ll see
