A new month means it is time for a new TBR. I’ve continued to split things into a ‘need to read’ pile and a possibility pile for mood reading. I’m sure I’ll probably also read stuff that isn’t listed anywhere in this post, as well, but these are the books I’d definitely like to get to this month.
Need to Read
I have a few ARCs to read this month, as well as some library books. I’ve also included some new releases I’m excited to read. I’ve left three spaces blank for books that fit a particular challenge: TBR tin, series read, and re-read. I’m not picking the books in advance because I almost always seem to want to read something other than what I’ve chosen for them, especially for the series and re-read challenges. So, I plan to just fill them in as I go along. My TBR tin pick will be announced on Instagram & Bluesky later this evening. It’s a new thing I’m doing where I will be picking an unread special edition book at random from my shelves. My special editions always seem to get shoved off for the future, and I have a backlog of approximately 50 of them to read.
This is a rare month where I’m currently still reading several books that I started last month. I’m usually pretty good about wrapping things up right on time at the end of the month and getting a fresh start, but not this month. So, I still need to finish The Magicians by Lev Grossman, The Secret History by Donna Tartt, and In These Hallowed Halls by Mary O’Regan & Paul Kane. I’m not including those in my general ‘need to read’ list, though.
Here’s the 7 books I will (hopefully) read for sure this month:
- 10 Things That Never Happened by Alexis Hall (📱 ARC)
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater (📖 owned)
- Traitor of Redwinter by Ed McDonald (📱 ARC)
- The Fragile Threads of Power by V. E. Schwab (Libby 🎧)
- Fall of Ruin and Wrath by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Libby 🎧)
- Dark Moon, Shallow Sea by David R. Slayton (📱 ARC)
- Curious Tides by Pascale Lacelle (📖 owned)
I’ve also made a short list of some books I’m currently in the mood to read. Does this mean I’ll read them this month? I’d like to, but these books are less of a priority than my ‘need to read’ pile. It’s also possible I won’t be in the mood for them anymore when I go to pick a book, but these are the ones I’d want to read if I picked today:
Foul Heart Huntsman by Chloe Gong, Two Twisted Crowns by Rachel Gillig, A Study in Drowning by Ava Reid, The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso, Masters of Death by Olivie Blake
Are any of these books on your TBR? Have you already read them? If so, what did you think? Let me know down in the comments!
