I’m the world’s GREATEST procrastinator…
Like all great procrastinator’s, I tend to make a list of things I will do (or read) and keep putting it off.
Well, I am not entirely sure if posting my September TBR list will make a difference so I will just go ahead and name this my wishlist to avoid disappointment.
Here we go!
1. FanGirl by: Rainbow Rowell
In Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life – and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.
I’ve been dying to read this book since the moment I heard about it. Looks like an easy read and I have Bookstagram to thank for showing it on my feed every single day. This is my current read and I can’t wait to tell y’all what I think about it.
2. The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep & Never Had To by: DC Pierson
When Darren Bennett meets Eric Lederer, there’s an instant connection. They share a love of drawing, the bottom rung on the cruel high school social ladder and a pathological fear of girls. Then Eric reveals a secret: He doesn’t sleep. Ever. When word leaks out about Eric’s condition, he and Darren find themselves on the run. Is it the government trying to tap into Eric’s mind, or something far darker? It could be that not sleeping is only part of what Eric’s capable of, and the truth is both better and worse than they could ever imagine.
I found this book on accident at my job (thanks to my bosses for leaving books around for their employees to read) and decided to pick it up and read it. I’d left my book at home & I didn’t want to NOT read at work. Who does that?! The first thing that grabbed me was the title… Super long. The second thing that captured my attention was the synopsis. So I figured ‘why not?!’
I just hope my employer doesn’t come after me for taking this book home…
3. Every Last Word by: Tamara Ireland Stone
Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can’t turn off
I’m not exactly sure what it was that attracted me to this book. I’d seen it on Bookstagram over the last several months, checked it out of the library a month ago (and refreshed the checkout period three times), only to find out what the book is even about, like, 10 min ago….
4. Hate List by Jennifer Brown
Five months ago, Valerie Leftman’s boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets.
This book caught my attention as I was walking around the Barnes and Noble Store, looking to find books I wanted to add to my Goodreads TBR list. I picked it up, read the synopsis, and knew right away I had to purchase it. What caught my attention the most was the cover of the book; it just looked intriguing, and the title made me rather curious. I’ve already started the book and so far.. I’m digging it.
5. The Wish Granter (Ravenspire Book #2) by C. J. Redwine
The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the bastard twins of Súndraille’s king. Their mother was murdered. The royal family died mysteriously. And now Thad sits on the throne of a kingdom whose streets are suddenly overrun with violence he can’t stop.
Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate. It was the work of a Wish Granter named Alistair Teague who tricked Thad into wishing away both the safety of his people and his soul in exchange for the crown.
So Ari recruits the help of Thad’s enigmatic new weapons master, Sebastian Vaughn, to teach her how to fight Teague. With secret ties to Teague’s criminal empire, Sebastian might just hold the key to discovering Alistair’s weaknesses, saving Ari’s brother—and herself.
But Teague is ruthless and more than ready to destroy anyone who dares stand in his way—and now he has his sights set on the princess. And if Ari can’t outwit him, she’ll lose Sebastian, her brother…and her soul.
I didn’t know that this book is part of the Ravenspire book series; It is preceded by The Shadow Queen, which I’m going to have to get my hands on after I’m done reading this one. The first thing I noticed about this book was the cover- it’s SO pretty & I kept mistaking it for Caraval. I’m hoping my eye for pretty covers doesn’t betray me. Also, like Fangirl and Every Last Word, I have only less than a week to finish reading it until it’s due date. *gulps*
6. This is Where it Ends by: Marieke Nijkamp
This #1 New York Times Bestseller chronicles the 54 harrowing minutes of a school shooting and follows four students who must confront their greatest hopes, and darkest fears, as they come face-to-face with the boy with the gun.
I saw this book at Walmart and decided to make a blind purchase since all I wanted to do was to buy new books to read (plus it was on sale!). It is somewhat similar to Hate List, so I already know I’ll be finishing this one within a day.
Have you read any of the books that I have on my list?
Which books would you be interested in reading?
Thanks for droppin by!
