Monthly TBR

April 2019 TBR

Hello Everyone!

It is April and below is my TBR for the month. I am hoping to read most of these books and if not then I will roll over the ones that I did not finish into May TBR. I am doing several challenges this month. I am doing Reading Rivalry challenge, the theme for April is Jokesters & Tricksters! Sounds like lots fun, should check out the Reading Rivalry Facebook group if you are interested in fun reading challenges!

Another reading challenge I am doing is Dark Fantasy Match game by TBR & Beyond Book Club (check link if you want to join in the fun).

This month’s game is different. You MUST pick TWO cards to make a match (any two cards) and find a book with BOTH those themes in them and, of course, read the book. That will give you a match! I am excited for this challenge, I love dark fantasy books and I know this will definitely get me out of my reading slump. TBETTDark Fantasy Challenge

My April TBR cart for both challenges!

What is on your TBR for the month? Are you reading any good dark fantasy that you would recommend?

Happy reading!

February 2019 TBR

It’s a new month, means gathering up books for TBR for February and putting them into my TBR cart. Unfortunately, I did not meet my reading goal for January but I am going to try to do better this month .

This month I decided to participate in some reading challenges with my participating in the group reads in TBR and Beyond Book Club.

Challenges I am doing this month are:

The first challenge is from Reading Rivalry called Iconic Couples (this is the first time I am doing this challenge). The following are the criteria for the challenge:

  • Author Highlight (Colleen Hoover, Jay Kristoff, Sabaa Tahir)
  • Love Triangle
  • Book that you think should be a movie
  • Book featuring a person of color
  • A Satire
  • A book recommended by a celebrity you admire
  • A Red/Pink spine
  • A book inspired by Asian mythology, legend, or folklore
  • A book you wouldn’t normally pickup

A book set in High School

I have chosen the books for this challenge and they are on my cart.

The second challenge is from TBR and Beyond Book Club is the monthly challenge called When Royalty Comes To Play. February - When Royalty Comes To Play

I chosen two ropes this time around, I chose the Snow Queen and Faerie Queen.

The books I chosen for Snow Queen rope:

And the books I chosen for Faerie Queen rope:

Also, I had one of the admins from TBR and Beyond Book Club to pick out two books to be included into my February TBR. I am going to be reading following:

The TBR and Beyond Group reads that I am participating in this month are The Gilded Wolves and White Stag.

That is it! I am hoping that I will get all of these read this month, majority of them are being used in both challenges this month so I should be able to get some of the completed.

Are any of these books on your February TBR? Are you doing any reading challenges to help reach your reading goal for the month? I would love to hear what your reading plans are for this month.
