Week 1 of December, 2017 To Be Read (TBR)

 

Since it is Sunday, it’s time for week 1 of December 2017’s to be read plans. I will start with sharing what I am currently reading. Right now, I am still reading Illuminae (60% of the way through). In addition, I am reading The Hate U Give (63% in), and You Have 4 Minutes (20% of the way in).

Here are my hopes/plans for the week in terms of reading.

Stand-alone

The Coldest Girl in Cold-Town by Holly Black

I am in the mood for a nice vampire story that is different than the typical stories about those creatures. Holly Black has a book coming out in January, and I want to celebrate her writing. She is a wonderful writer.

Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore

Cursed lovers and a mysterious group of sisters are at the center of this story. Plus, the cover is gorgeous. The author is so good at what she does. I am here for this.

Series beginnings

Timekeeper by Tara Sim

Steampunk and time related technology sounds really nice. Also: I have a love for Victorian settings in general. The next book in the series comes out in January. I hope this one is a good read.

Sequels

The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima

Jolien had beautiful reviews of the third and fourth books in this series. I’d like to catch up with her so we can fangirl together. Perhaps, we can read the spin off series together. *Wistful dreaming*

 

 

A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard

I’m just giving myself options. Besides, I loved the first book in this trilogy, and I’d like to keep going. If not this week, then soon. Zombies, Victorian time setting, some technology. Siblings, friendships, and questioning social norms. So good.

To be watched

Recently, I picked up the Divergent trilogy movies, so I want to watch them at some point this week. In addition, I am working my way through season 3 of The 100. Admittedly, I am afraid of what will happen next on that show. But, still, I am curious. So…I’ll keep going.

Finally, I am currently watching Poldark with my mom (season 3). In short, I spend my time yelling at Ross Poldark and Elizabeth quite a bit. I’m very doubtful we’ll finish it this week, because we only watch an episode a day. My goal is to keep watching these shows a little bit at a time. It all adds up in the end.

  1. YAY! First of all, happy reading this week! I am in no rush to read the spin-off series though, so take all the time you want/need to read Seven Realms. I will wait 😀

    I still have The Hate U Give on my TBR (I know, it’s terrible… I really should have read it already). Maybe that will be my next read when I finish the one I’m currently reading.

  2. Wild Beauty is on my December TBR too and I can’t wait to see how it is.. I’m so excited to read it!! Also I loved The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I found it to be a really easy read!
