Hello! I hope you're having a great bank holiday if you're in the UK!
I haven't posted a TBR (to be read) on here before so I thought I'd try something new. I usually have an idea of what I want to read each month, a kind of mental TBR, but I thought it would be interesting to pick a few books I want to read and then see how it turns out at the end of the month. So here we go...
I am currently away for the bank holiday weekend (I've scheduled this in advance) and I've taken my e-reader, as it's great for travel and I don't often read on it when I'm at home. So here are a couple of books I want to get through on it:
We Were Liars by E.Lockhart
Everyone in the world has raved about this and I've been meaning to for ages, I started this before I went so have already read a chunk of it, and it's very short so I think I'll get through it quickly.
Unravel Me by Tehereh Mafi
I read Shatter Me in February and didn't really enjoy it that much, but everyone loves this series and I've heard it gets better so I've decided to give the second book a go. I decided to get it on my e-reader and if I enjoy it I might invest in the hard copy.
I might get through a few more on my e-reader, I seem to read quicker on it for some reason, but those are the ones I've planned. Next the physical books I plan on reading this month:
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
I bought this in December as kind of a Christmas present to myself and haven't got round to reading it yet. I'm planning on belatedly taking part in the 2015 Classics Challenge hosted by Pretty Books. So I think this will be the classic I read this month and hopefully a review will be up when I've read it.
The Fox by Sherwood Smith
I'm participating in the Inda readalong, hosted by Sam from Novels and Nonsense, again this month and this is the second book in the series. I really enjoyed the first book so I'm looking forward to getting into this one when I've got a big chunk of time to just sit and read.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
I've been really enjoying re-reading the Harry Potter series but didn't manage to get around to this last month. I have a couple of other long books to read this month but I'll hopefully get around to this if I have time.
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness
This is the second book in the Chaos Walking trilogy, I read the first book for university last year and really enjoyed it but never got around to continuing with the series. This is my TBR jar pick for this month so I'm really hoping to get to this. I've been neglecting my TBR jar a bit lately but I really want to start making use of it in the next few months, so I can really try and tackle my crazy TBR.
So those are the books I'm hoping to get to this month! I know it's quite ambitious and I probably won't finish all of them but it's good to have something to aim for. I think it'll be interesting to review this in my wrap-up and see how I did.
What books are you hoping to read this month?
