img_0358

I know we are almost done with the month but I wanted to share my February TBR. Like last month I have only four books on my TBR list for the month. Since this month is Valentine’s Day most of the books I picked are romance novels.

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins: This is the last book in the Anna and the French Kiss series. I am so excited to finish this series but I haven’t heard that many good this about this book.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West: When I heard the plot of this book I knew that I had to read it. It is about a boy and girl that start exchange anonymous letters to each. It sounds like such a cute love story with an old school kind of twist to it.

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows: I don’t know much about this story but I have heard it is a pretty funny story. However, I have seen very mixed reviews on this book so I’m interested in seeing what I think about it. This is the first in a series but the next book doesn’t come out until 2018 so if I do end up liking it I’ll have to wait a while to continue on with the series.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I am going to try my best to finish this audiobook since it has been on my tbr for two months now.

2017 Reading Goals

Since it is a New Year which is normally a time for setting goals. I thought I’d share my book related resolutions with you guys.

Read 50 Books: My Goodreads challenge for the year is to read at least fifty books which I think is totally do able. I am not a fast reader so I didn’t want to set a goal of like 100 books and get overwhelmed.

Finish Series: I want to finish at least 2 book series I have started if not all of them. A lot of times I’ll start a series and won’t finish it because I’m not in the mood. I want actually finish most of the series that I have started this year.

Read Classics: I want to start reading more classic books. I love my YA novels but I want to read more traditional novels. Classic fairy tales, Jane Austin, Charles Dickens and such.

Start a Popular Series: I want to start and hopefully finish a popular book series. I’m kind of embarrassed to admit I’ve never read the entire Harry Potter series, Divergent, Hunger Games and tons more.

Read at Least One Non-Fiction Book: I’m not big into biographies but I want to set out of my comfort zone this year by reading some non-fiction books.

Those are all my reading goals for the year. I would love to know your goals reading or otherwise in the comments below.

January TBR | 2017

I am so excited to be starting off this blog for the new year. I wanted to start this blog by sharing my January tbr. I don’t have that many books because I don’t want to overwhelm myself but I think I have some great reads for the month.

This is What Happiness Looks like by Jennifer E. Smith: This story follow a boy and a girl who start talking via email but the girl soon comes to find out that the boy is actually a movie star when he starts showing his next film in her small town.

I started this book last year but only read the first three chapters. I am trying to start off the year by finishing any books that I have left unfinished, which is probably like 5 books or so. Also, I love contemporary reads so I’m sure I’ll get through this pretty quickly.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: Honestly, all I know is that it is the second book in the Anna and the French Kiss series. I read Anna and the French Kiss last year at this time so I’m excited to pick up the next book in the series.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I heard about this book a while ago then saw the trailer for the movie that is coming out in February and knew that I had to read the book.

I believe it is about a girl that gets into a car accident with her friends but wakes up the next day and has to repeat the day she died.

The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen: I want to start getting into classic books and fairytales. And since its winter I thought this would be an appropriate read. All I know is that it is the story that Disney’s Frozen is based off. I’m thinking of getting the audiobook version and listening to it instead of reading it.

There you have it my January TBR! I will be doing a wrap up post and of course reviews on the books that I read this month. Below are the Goodreads links to each of the books mentioned above.
