Happy Thursday bookish people! Today I am bringing you my TBR for June. This month there is a month long readathon created by Maddie at BookBrowsingBlogs on Youtube, the readathon is called whateveryouwantathon and there are four different teams with dome different prompts. I am following the prompts of the Sunset Scholars.
My June TBR:

There are also a few prompts that are things like cozy reading time and complete a personal reading goal which I didn’t put in the list because they can be completed with any of the books.
That’s it for my June TBR, I hope you all enjoyed it! What are you reading in June?
Happy Sunday bookish people! Today is the 1st of May and I am very excited to share with you all my plans for May.
So this month is going to be another busy one I think, lots of meetings, lots of classes and a trip to Cardiff which will be fun – and will give me the travel time for reading! There is also the 48 hour bookopolothan hosted by becca and the books on youtube which I will be taking part in, last year it meant I read eight books in two days so that was fun and I’d love to try and do that again.
My books for May:
The Crooked Sixpence by Jennifer Bell – this is a very cute sounding middle grade that I am hoping to read early in the month
The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling – I love anything witchy so this already appeals to me
Graceling by Kristen Cashore
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Last Chance Books by Kelsey Rodkey
Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao
A Three Dog Problem by S J Bennett
The Crowns Game
A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross
The Final Girls Support Group by Grady Hendrix
A Marvelous Light by Freya Marske
The Key In The Lock by Beth Underdown – I will be reading this for the short book prompt for the 48 hour challenge
Dangerous Women by Hope Adams
A Line To Kill by Anthony Horowitz
Cecily by Annie Garthwaite – I will be using this for the gods prompt for the 48 hour challenge because of the amount of religion in historical fiction of this period
Queenslayer by Sebastien de Castell – I have already started reading this one and I am loving it
I am really looking forward to getting started with these books (well technically I already have). Have you read any of these books? what did you think of them?
Happy Sunday bookish people! I hope you’re all having a good day. Today I am bringing you my April wrap up and I’m so glad to say that my reading has been a little bit better this month, not amazing to the extent that I was at this time last year but so much better than March and February. So I’m going to get straight into which books I did and didn’t read in April!
Small Favours by Erin A Craig – I did not read this book – I just wasn’t in the mood for this style of plot this month
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas – I finally managed to read this book, my review for it will be up soon but I really enjoyed it
Daughters of Night by Laura Shepard-Robinson – I have started this book but I haven’t finished it yet, it’s a pretty big book so it might take me some time
Rose by Holly Webb – I did read this book
there was a non-bookish prompt and for this I had a nice warm bath and I watched some videos
Lily by Rose Tremain – I did read this book too so a review of this book will also be up soon
The City Beautiful by Aden Polydoros – I did not read this book
The Mapmakers by Tamzin Merchant – I read this book too!

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – I did not read this book
The Five – I did not read this book
A Marvelous Light by Freya Marske – I did not read this book but it is on my May tbr

Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore – I did read this book!

House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J Maas – I did not read this
So that was what I did and didn’t read in April. I ended up reading 5 books and started two others, one of which I will finish in a few days so I am really happy with that.
Happy Tuesday bookish people! I am happy to be bringing you my March TBR today. I have a good feeling about March, I am hoping to get a lot of reading done, there’s so many good books on my TBR that I desperately want to pick up. Also, it’s my birthday on the 25th of March! I’ll be 23 and I had actually forgotten how close it was, I hadn’t made a list and so I was trying to think of the books I wanted and put them on an Amazon wishlist here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/3H1PW8BGD9KF7/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1
Anyway, onto the TBR!
The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
I have heard so many good things about this book and even though I am not usually the biggest fan of romance novels, I am willing to give each one a try though so we shall see if I enjoy this one or not.
Last Chance Books by Kelsey Rodkey
Again, another contemporary romance book but I mean it has books on the front so at least I will enjoy the setting, also it has enemies to lovers from what I have read and I do enjoy that trope.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I loved The Starless Sea by the same author, it’s my favourite book and this seems to have the same magical realism so I am hopeful that I will really enjoy this book.
The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton
A historical murder mystery set on a boat. Of course I want to read this book.
Kingdom of the Cursed by Kerri Maniscalco
I am so excited to continue this series, Emilia is one of my favourite female protagonists and Wrath is such a good morally grey character. I love it!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
This is a book that I have been putting off for ages, well ever since I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses but I am excited to read it because I have heard it is the best book in the series.
City of Brass by S A Chakraborty
I have already started this book a year ago but I put it down for some reason and I haven’t thought about picking it up again until now.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
This is another book that I have heard really good things about so I am excited to read this one.
The Once and Future Witches by Alix E Harrow
Witches in a historical setting, I am very excited about this book.

This books kind of reminds me of the Umbrella Academy but a bit more peaceful so that’s why I was drawn to this book to start with.

this is the second book in the bear and the nightingale series and I absolutely loved the first book so I am really excited to continue this dark and wintery series.
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik

Bone Spindle by Leslie Vedder
This books sounds very interesting to me and a friend has read it and enjoyed it which makes me want to read it even more.
Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell
This looks like a very cute middle grade book. Plus I love the cover, it is very inviting.

This is the third book in the Invisible Library series, I really love Irene and Kai from this series and I can’t wait to see what adventures they are going to go on next.
House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J Maas
This is one of my most anticipated books of this year so I am nervous to read it, it is also huge so it might take me a while but I am very excited, I am trying my hardest to not see any spoilers for it.
That’s it for my march TBR, I hope you all enjoyed it! What are you planning on reading this month?
Happy Friday bookish people! I hope you’re all having a good day and week. My week has been very upsetting and stressful, my partner and I ended up breaking up and I had to gather the things I needed and move to my sister’s house for a few days. Then I will be moving back in with my parents so it’s been really difficult and I’m not doing too great but things will get better soon I’m sure.
Spaghetti – A book with a friendship or multiple points of view
All I had to know about this book is that there’s a library and demons coming out of books so of course I want to read it.
Champagne – A character with anxiety
I don’t know much about this book but I saw a few people mention that if you like the book fangirl by rainbow rowell then you might like this one so that’s why I picked it up and I am intrigued.
Steak and Lobster – A book that looks expensive or has a fancy cover
I am so excited to read this book! And this cover definitely fits the prompt of looking fancy.
Ring Pops – a book featuring or revolving around a wedding
Yuzu – a sweet and tart character
I love anything Garth Nix so I am very excited to read this.
Truffles – A darker genre book e.g mystery or thriller
Leftovers – A book you DNF’d
I started this book about a year ago and I read the first 100 pages and then I can’t remember the reason why I put it down but I did and I hadn’t gotten around to picking it up again yet.
Baked Alaska – a book with a surprise
Edible Glitter – A book with magic or fantasy in it
Milkshake – a book where two characters have to go on a quest
Pizza – a comfort read
Strawberries – a book with a red cover
I know it doesn’t look very red here but I was very lucky to be sent a proof copy of this book and that one has a red cover, so I am going to count it.
That’s it for my February TBR, I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I plan to read. Let me know in the comments if you plan to join us with the readathon – there are prizes! – and what you plan to read for it.
Happy Tuesday bookish people! It’s the first month of the new year and it is time to share what I hope to be reading this month. I feel like I want to read a lot this month so far, I am hoping this will continue throughout the month and I’ll have a great month to start the year.

Of course I had to start my blogmas/ bookmas with my TBR for December so I hope you all enjoy reading about what I plan to read in December and the thoughts I already have about the books.
My December TBR:
Well Met by Jen de Luca – This month I have included lots of books that are outside of my comfort zone in my TBR and this is one of them. It mentions a Renaissance fair and that sounds very unique and interesting.
The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman – I read his first book either this year or last year, I can’t quite remember and it was very enjoyable so hopefully the second book lives up to it.
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia – I am interested in reading this book because it has been compared to Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and I loved hat book.
Kingdom of The Cursed by Kerri Maniscalco – I love Kerri Maniscalco’s work and Kingdom of the wicked is no different, I can’t wait to be back with Wrath and Emilia.
Dance of Thieves by Mary E Pearson – The description makes me think of Six of Crows a little bit so I have high hopes for this one.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – again this book is on my TBR, I will read it eventually!
Not Here to be Liked by Michelle Quach – I’m not usually drawn to this genre but the synopsis really interested me and I’m not completely sure why.

The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood – again, another book outside of my comfort zone but I am looking forward to giving it a chance.
In The Crypt With A Candlestick by Daisy Waugh – a 1920’s themed murder mystery makes me think of Agatha Christie which I love so hopefully I will enjoy it.

Happy Tuesday bookish people! I was meant to be putting this post up yesterday but I ran out of time because my partner and I were visiting his parents. So I’m putting it up today instead!
This month I have used the prompts for Believathon round 4: Escape from the Jungle – hosted by Gavin from How To Train Your Gavin on YouTube, but I am twisting the rules just a little bit…
The premise of the Readathon is to read middle grade books that fit the prompts – there are thirty prompts in total. I don’t own that many middle grade books so I am just going to use any books I have to fit the prompts and get some of the middle grade I own in there as well.
