I am here to talk about the books I am hoping to read this month. I have a lot of books that are in the paranormal/urban fantasy genre. Like a lotttt of books. I definitely can’t read them all in one month. So I decided to divide them into paranormal creatures and for the next few months, I’m picking off some of those creatures. And I’m starting this month with ghosts! Or books that have themes of spirits and things like that.
SO let’s get started!
First Order of Business:
And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga #1) and Summer of Supernovas
by Kiersten White and Darcy Woods
I got these e-ARCs from NetGalley and I am really excited to read them. I’ve heard really great things about And I Darken, some from really tough and critical reviewers so I’m hopeful that this will blow me away as well. I haven’t heard from many of my friends about Summer of Supernovas but I love the astrology aspect of the plot because I love that kind of stuff to. This is probably going to be my first read because it comes out super early in May.
TBR Jar Pick:
Zodiac (Zodiac #1)
by Romina Russell
I wanted to read this book sooo much since it came out. I’m obsessed with astrology and I’m very conscious of my sign and what that means and things like that. But I heard a lot of mixed things since it’s come out and I’ve been hesitant to start it. But come on, it’s from a Cancer girl’s POV, and I’m a Cancer!! I need to read this.
Monthly Book Club:
Me Before You (Me Before You #1)
by Jojo Moyes
Abby’s choice this month! I’m excited but nervous at the same time. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this book but also that it’s heartbreaking and really emotional. So I’m a little apprehensive but pumped to get to read this with my friends.
Read It While It’s Hot Challenge:
Even if the Sky Falls and Ruined (Ruined #1)
by Mia Garcia and Amy Tintera
So I failed awfully in this challenge last month because I picked a book that came out at the end of the month and by that time I wasn’t definitely not going to have enough time to read it. So I want to make up for it as well as keep the momentum so I picked two books this time. The first is a standalone as well as a debut author so I want to read it to help that challenge and the second is the start of a new series that I’ve heard a lot of great things about and I want to see what the fuss is about.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
by J.K. Rowling
That’s right people! Aldii and I are still kicking butt and taking names in our challenge. We’re having a lot of fun chatting and coming up with our featured posts and I’m really excited to be getting into those final stretches. After this, I’ll be reading books without seeing the movie before and that’ll be interesting.
Spy Glass (Glass #3) and Lion Heart (Scarlet #3)
by Maria V. Snyder and A.C. Gaughen
On my quest to finishing more series this year, I am doing it like a champ! I’m going to read these two books and knock two off my giant list which you all saw last week, I am still a little ashamed honestly. But no matter, I hope these two will be good finales.
Swoon #1 and #2
Swoon and Swear
by Nina Malkin
Another series I need to finish. Luckily this is a duology so it doesn’t take long to finish. I really enjoyed the first book when I read it, got the hardback in Barnes & Noble on a whim and it was kind of cool so I’m excited to see how it will end.
Light #1 and #2
A Certain Slant of Light and Under the Light
by Laura Whitcomb
Another unfinished series, another duology, I’m going to do it! My 9th grade English teacher recommended the first book to me and I really enjoyed it but I don’t remember much of what happened. Hopefully I’ll get this one done too.
The Graveyard Book
by Neil Gaiman
So this one is a wild card. I’m interested in reading Neil Gaiman, he’s a really popular author and I’ve heard a lot of great things about him. But I’m not sure I’ll be in the mood to read this book, something that never happens to me because I’m not a mood reader whatsoever, but there’s a lot of other books on my list that I want to read more. So we’ll see.
The Raven Cycle #1, #2, #3 and #4
The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves, Blue Lily, Lily Blue and The Raven King
by Maggie Stiefvater
There is no way you have not heard about this series by now. I’ve heard about it so much, specially from my friend Estefania @ Fiction Jungle since she read it recently. I am hopeful that I’ll be able to start and finish this series. BUT don’t quote me because the last book just came out and I don’t know if I can buy it this month so maybe I won’t get it done, but wish me luck!
The Hollow #1, #2 and #3
The Hollow, The Haunted and The Hidden
by Jessica Verday
Yes, yet another unfinished series. This one is actually quite cool and I don’t know why there aren’t more people that have read this series. It’s kind of like a new take of Sleepy Hollow which I thought was awesome when I first read it so I’m hoping I’ll enjoy it just as much the second time around.
Immortal #1, #2, #3 and #4
Immortal, Betrayal, Eternal and Destiny
by Gillian Shields
Last books I’m sharing in this list (I have more in the written list) and this is also an unfinished series. I had an obsession with Paranormal when I was younger, I blame Twilight. Hope I’ll kick butt and at least re-read the first book in this series because I need a refresher so I can finally finish this series.
So that’s it for this post! My lists are always huge but I average 10 books read per month so I think I can do most of these. Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what you thought of them! I would love to know if you’ve ever had a genre obsession before. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
