January TBR

Hello everyone!

This month I am very excited to share my TBR for the month of January! I wanted to start this year off to a good start and try to get a lot of my anticipated reads read!

A huge goal of my 2018 is to read more tomes, it is essentially the year of tomes for me, and I could not be more excited! I have not read a novel yet for this month, due to the start of school as well as a couple side tasks I’ve had to keep track of and finish up, but I am prepared to hunker down and set aside some quality time to read as much as I can, additionally I am looking to listen to a lot more audiobooks this year, so I will find something I’d like to listen to for all of my long drives throughout the month!

Anyways, let’s get into the TBR!

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

This novel is one that I have been anticipating ever since I heard about it’s release, as I’m sure everyone has also been looking forward to it.

This novel is about a girl named Jude who witnesses the murder of her parents and then is kidnaped and taken to a land filled with faerie’s to live in the High Court. Jude grows up wanting nothing but to fit in and belong in this world but fey despise humans, so she never has the opportunity to fit in.

So Jude takes on the task of winning a place at the court, which leads to her having a rocky relationship with Prince Cardan, the son of the High King.

This novel give’s me a lot of ACOTAR feelings and I’m really looking forward to being able to read this and enter the world of the fey for a fun new story.

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

This novel is one that I’ve heard a lot about, but recently it has taken up more of my attention because my boyfriend listened to the audiobook and found it incredible so he has been after me to read the novel, ASAP.

This novel has been very popular for quite a while, so I’m sure a lot of you have already heard of what it’s about, personally I don’t know exactly what it’s about, I know it’s high fantasy, and it has a talking sword? Something like that..

I understand that it contains a lot of action and fighting and war… I think… I’ll add the link for the Goodreads page for you all, so if you’d like some understandable information you can just head over there!

The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

This series is one that I started reading because Reagan from PeruseProject on YouTube would talk about it endlessly, and she quite enjoyed it, so I thought I’d give it a try.

The first novel was perfectly good, I enjoyed myself and found myself surprised with some of the ways things happened, which is great.

I have started this novel already and I’m about 1/4 of the way through, but I’ve found myself getting a bit bored with the storyline, and not looking forward to reading the novel as much as I did previously, therefore I’m taking a small break from the novel and starting with Cruel Prince first, then I will definitely get back to the novel before the end of the month.

I don’t really want to explain this novel in case someone is looking to start the series and doesn’t want to be spoiled, so I will link the first novel below so you can check out the series if you’d like!

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

This novel is one I’m sure everyone has already heard of and read, and I am just a bit late to the party.

This is one that I’ve been wanting to read but haven’t wanted it bad enough to actually purchase the novel and actually read the novels. Then I found the sequel novel to this series on book outlet and couldn’t help myself, so I bought the second novel and had to purchase the first as well!

This novel is about a school in which children go to after they have experienced something fantastical in their lives. Such as going to Narnia or Wonderland. It’s a school filled with kids whose parents don’t understand.

I think this novel has a really interesting premise and I’m very excited to read it when I get the chance!

Alright, I think 4 novels (including one tome) is a large enough TBR for me to have during the month of January. Of course this list is subject to change throughout the month, but for now that is what I’m deciding to stick with.

Thank you so much for reading and don’t forget to follow my blog as well as my other social media sites linked in the side bar.

Until next time,
