Happy New Year!! Again haha. It boggles my mind that we’re already in 2016. Isn’t that crazy?! This will be my 22nd year on Earth. Insane.
Today I’m sharing my January TBR and as you can tell by the title, the theme is High Fantasy. This is an annual theme that I do every year to start the year off with some great reading of my favorite genre.
Because it’s my fave, y’all know this list is going to be gigantic.
Here are the books I’m hoping to read this month:
First Order of Business:
by Will McIntosh
This is an eARC that I got from NetGalley. I don’t really know what it’s about but I like to go into my ARCs that way so I don’t have a predisposition to like it or hate it. Hopefully this will be good and definitely except a review next month.
TBR Jar Pick:
by Kimberly Derting
I got this book for my TBR pick of the month (thanks to my mommy who pulled it out for me) and the only thing I know about it is that it’s about aliens. I think the main character gets abducted and shows up five years later and everything is upside down and she gotta figure it what the f happened to her. So let’s see what happens!
Monthly Book Club:
by Rainbow Rowell
This time we’re doing it! I swear it! We tried in November, we tried in December but we decided that we wanted a quick break before starting fresh in 2016. We still want to read this book and it’s going to happen okay?! Look out for a Soundtrack to my Book for Fangirl cause it’s going to be there.
Read It While It’s Hot Challenge:
by Elle Kennedy
Check out my 2016 Reading Challenges post from yesterday if you have no idea what the RIWIH Challenge is. This is the third book in the Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy which is the reason why I picked it for my new release to read of the month even though I have a huge list for January. I read the second book in November and the main character in this one is absolutely hilarious and I’m so excited!
Queen of Shadows
by Sarah J. Maas
I’ve actually already started this book and the decision was much more scary than it should’ve been. I am absolutely terrified of what’s going to happen. I’ve told a few of my friends this and you may think it’s dumb but I’m barely 20% through it and my heart is already shattered on the floor of my bedroom. How much worse can it get, I mean really?
Chronicles of Ixia #3, #3.5, #3.6, #4, #5 and #6
Fire Study, Power Study, Ice Study, Storm Glass, Sea Glass and Spy Glass
by Maria V. Snyder
So you guys should know my love for this series and Maria V, Snyder by now. I’ve read the first two books and reviewed them and I’m hoping to at least finish the Study part of the trilogy this month and maybe trying for the Glass trilogy is pushing it but there’s two novellas in here to maybe I’ll take a chunk out of it too. After this there’s another three books added to the original Study series and I want to get to those ASAP.
Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes #2)
by Sara Raasch
I read Snow Like Ashes in July last year and I really enjoyed it. Originally this was lower on my TBR list for this month but I decided to kick it up to have more of a chance to read it because the first book was so promising, I want to see how well the second book stood against that thought. I hope this doesn’t have second book syndrome (or the filler book syndrome).
Falling Kingdoms #1, #2, #3 and #4
Falling Kingdoms, Rebel Spring, Gathering Darkness and Frozen Tides
by Morgan Rhodes
This is the number two series that I wanted to start in 2016 and I am committed! At least the first book is going to be under my belt because I’ve heard so many great things about this series from a lot of people. I hope all the hype around it is not disappointing or that there’s something within the plot that bothers me cause I don’t want anyone hunting me down haha.
The Invasion of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #2)
by Erika Johansen
I read the first book in this trilogy in November and I really enjoyed it. The main character was great and the plot was gripping and there are some many things left hanging! I mean only the title called Invasion tells me a lot about what’s going to happen, but STILL. There’s so much history that we don’t know about! Something I hope is in this is ore world building cause I’m telling you, it is necessary.
Legacy of Kings (Blood of Gods and Royals #1)
by Eleanor Herman
I have been dyingggg to read this book since I saw the cover and the blurb. But I haven’t because I’m a weirdo that doesn’t read books until she has the right theme. So I’m hoping this is good, it’s high fantasy but at the same time, historical fiction and a retelling of Alexander the Great as a teenager. Doesn’t that sound cool?
The Girl of Fire and Thorns #1, #2 and #3
The Girl of Fire and Thorns, The Crown of Embers and The Bitter Kingdom
by Rae Carson
Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes binge read this series a few months ago and her review of it really spoke to me. I’d always had it on my TBR but never really gave it too much thought, but she spoke about how the fantasy world is very Hispanic/Latin influenced. I’ve never read a book like that before and you all know I’m Latina and I really hope to at least read the first book and start this series.
So I’m going to leave it there cause if you haven’t counted there’s 21 books there but I still have 12 more books as options, including the Grisha trilogy and An Ember in the Ashes. I also might be continuing the Lunar Chronicles so make sure you check my wrap up later or add me on Goodreads to see what I end up doing. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
