Hello Book fans!

Depending on where you are in the world (northern part = Spring southern part = Fall/Autumn) I decided to make a TBR list highlighting the books I’d be reading while stopping and smelling the roses (this does not include the book I’m reading now: The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas considering I started that at the end of February)


1. THE BELLES by Dhonielle Clayton (already released)

I am going to read this simply because it’s a book I’m reading with my book club and I better start reading!

2. OBSIDIO by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (March 13th)

This one is a no brainer! I love this series so much I reread it (I originally read this in 2016 but decided to reread for book 3s release)

3. CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE by Tomi Adeyemi (March 6th)

This is probably the most anticipated YA debuts of 2018 and I have my eyes on it.

4. LIFE L1K3 by Jay Kristoff (May 29th)

Book club read of May 2018

5. ICE WOLVES by Amie Kaufman (March 27th) 

I met Amie Kaufman once. She’s amazing and I feel I owe it to her to keep reading her books

6. LEAH ON THE OFFBEAT by Becky Albertalli (April 24th) 

Like Obsidio this is a no brainer I think I’ll be that crazy fangirl who becomes this demonic monster in the bookstores. Yeah, please don’t approach me in this form.

7. LEGENDARY by Stephanie Garber (May 29th)

OMG! I love Caraval like a kid loves candy floss! ARGH! I actually didn’t know this was out in May!

8. A COURT OF FROST AND STARLIGHT by Sarah J Maas (May 1st)

No I am NOT going to reread the ACOTAR series. I have so many other books to read. (please refer to this list if you don’t believe me) also look, Sarah J Maas has so many unnecessary love scenes.

9. FURYBORN by Claire Legrand

Heard great things about this book. Hope book reviewers are being truthful!

10. PUDDIN’ by Julie Murphy 

Never read Dumplin’ but that is on my TBR at the moment

11. ON THE COME UP by Angie Thomas

Still haven’t read The Hate U Give

12. THE COLLIDE by Kimberley McCreight 

Do I still like The Outliers? Good question should probably check out The Scattering while I’m at it


1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Believe it or not I STILL haven’t read this book! I attempted last year in July but I just wasn’t into it. I will try again and see if I like it. I wanna be hyped up for War Storm!

2. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

To be honest, I’m not reading this just to finish the Grisha trilogy. I want to get started on Six of Crows so that I can FINALLY understand the hype around it.

3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I had my eyes on this for a while so hopefully this would go well!

4. Throne of Glass + Crown of Midnight + Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas

The biggest YA book series out there… and… I haven’t read it yet despite my new blog title. HEY AT LEAST I’M TRYING PPL!!

5. City of Fallen Angels + City of Lost Souls + City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare 

It’s about time I finish this series! THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: 2015-2018 MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.

6. DUMPLIN’ by Julie Murphy 

I think this will be a feel good book! (Hopefully) and I think it has an important message for readers nowadays!

7. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas 

One of the most powerful YA debuts EVER (I swear!) I heard so many things about it!!

8. The Scattering by Kimberley McCreight 

Read The Outliers last year. I think It’s time to pick the series up again!

9. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins 

Should finish The Hunger Games series since everybody else has read it…

10. Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix 

Read Harry Potter up to book 4… that was 2 years ago. I’M NOT REREADING BECAUSE IT TAKES ME FOREVER TO READ A SERIES K? So I decided to commit to Harry Potter so that I can officially call me a book nerd. I’m gonna read the rest of the series later on because I don’t know how long my Spring/fall TBR would take me.



Wish I could be this organized ;(. I'm so sporadic. I binge on an author and/or grab a random book. Need these recommendations, so thanks!

Same here but these are just guides for what I should consider reading. Obviously plans change but this is just to give me a rough outline.
