Top Ten Tuesday:  Books On My Fall 2022 To-Read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books On My Fall 2022 To-Read List (Now this is going to be fun again! XD)

1.) „Empire of the Vampire“ by Jay Kristoff

43728380. sy475

I wanted to read this book for ages and I guess fall is the perfect time to pick up a huge vampire book! I can’t wait to see Jay’s take on vampires and I’m sure I’ll love it! With about 700+ pages this book is pretty thick though and that actually kept me from diving into it. I’m ready for it now, though! So bring it on Jay Kristoff! ;-P

2.) „Verity“ by Colleen Hoover

60217269. sy475

And here’s another one of those books I wanted to read for a long time but never dared to pick up. *lol* This time around the fact that everyone, literally everyone, is constantly warning about the trigger warnings made me very scared to read this. But I guess it’s September and soon it will be spooky month aka Halloween so this sounds about the right time to read a book like this. I hope I’ll get out of this unscathed. *nervous laugh*

3.) „Call Down the Hawk“ by Maggie Stiefvater

44074162. sy475

I started this book ages ago but never really picked it up because there was always a library book that needed to be read first. Guess that’s the problem with the books you own, you rather read all the others first. XD I’ll rectify that injustice to this, no doubt, amazing book this fall though and my Yoongi and I will finally read this together! ❤

4.) „Wolfsong“ by T.J. Klune

29233804. sy475

I finally discovered T.J. Klune’s books this summer through my #Klunealong and I’m so going to pick up this one because everyone says it’s amazing. So far I loved all of his books and I’m sure I’ll adore this one too! I can’t wait to read about LGBTQIA+ werewolves and I’m so ready to be blown away by Klune’s writing again! This sounds like the perfect Halloween read for me!

5.) „All Systems Red“ by Martha Wells

32758901. sy475

I’m so intrigued by the premise of this book, you have no idea! XD A murderbot sounds really interesting and so many people said that this is funny so I’m totally here for it! I mean alone the fact that this AI calls itself „murderbot“ in it’s head and doesn’t like humans is already very promising. *lol* I’m ready to find out more. 😉

6.) „The Silvered Serpents“ by Roshani Chokshi

52796733. sy475

I really should FINISH. THIS. BOOK! *lol* Seriously I began to read it in April and it’s about time I take it off my „currently reading“! I guess you can tell that I was in a reading slump for a while because the mere fact I didn’t devour this says it all! I mean I love those characters and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on an ARC of this baby – which I never did btw – yet I still haven’t finished it. And that’s wrong! I’m going to love this book the way it deserves now and I’m determined to get it off my list in a month! XD

7.) „The Electric Heir“ by Victoria Lee

45439783

I loved the first book „The Fever King“ when I read it this year and I can’t wait to find out how this story continues. Dara and Noam own my heart and I really, really just want the best for my precious boys! I’m kinda worried I’ll end up suffering in this book though so uff. I guess that’s why I procrastinated again. XD But I will read it this fall!! I know it!

8.) „The Queen of Air and Darkness“ by Cassandra Clare

13541056. sy475

I promised Catherine that I’d read this book by the end of the year and I have every intention to go through with this promise! It’s about time I pick up Cassandra Clare’s books again and even though I know it will hurt, I still want to read this one! No, actually I NEED to read this one because damn, I need to find out what is going to happen to all my precious Blackthorns! T_T And my super precious Kieran which I love with all my heart! ❤

9.) „The King’s Men“ by Nora Sakavic

23594461

This book is going to hurt so bad! I just know it, but I still want to know how it all ends. I made it through book 2 so how bad can it get? (He asked knowing full well that it would be excruciating! *lool*) No, seriously, I’m not ready to read book three of this series but oh well, I guess I’ll never be so it won’t help to procrastinate forever. I just need to be brave and pick it up. I can do it! XD

10.) „This Savage Song“ by Victoria Schwab

40642172. sy475

This book has been on my TBR for ages and I finally want to read it. I mean it’s one of the few Schwab books I haven’t read yet and it’s been on my „Book List 2021“ as well. At least I think I put it on there. So yep, it’s time to find out what this series is about. Schwab can do nothing wrong with me, I just adore her books. ❤

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books are on your fall TBR and do we have some in common? Do you have special books you want to read for Halloween and if yes, are they very creepy? As you all know I’m a scaredy fox and I’m always looking for nice horror books that aren’t too heavy. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Summer 2022 To-Read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books On My Summer 2022 To-Read List – Now this is going to be a fun list because most of those books I borrowed from my library and need to read in time. 😉

1.) „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ by T.J. Klune

45047384. sy475

I’ll finally read this gem in July!!! I’m hosting my first readalong ever and I named it #Klunealong because in July we’ll be reading „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ and in August… well, the voting for this one is still open so I dunno which book we’ll read. *lol* If you’re interested in joining here’s the link to the official blog post I wrote about it: Readalong Announcement: „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ – #Klunealong  My bestie was so kind to make a discord as well so we can chat about our reading process while we read the book! 😉 I’d love it if you’d join, the more the merrier! ❤

2.) „Camp“ by L.C. Rosen

53115194. sx318 sy475

I finally put this book on my TBR for July because I loved „Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)“ when I read it and I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one as well. 🙂 Also I needed a short book I could read in July aside of „The House in the Cerulean Sea“ because I’m sure I’ll be very busy with hosting my #Klunealong. *lol* I really have no idea what I got myself into. XD

3.) „Rebel“ by Marie Lu

42121526

It’s about time I finish this series! I mean I already read and loved the „Legend“ trilogy but I still haven’t picked up this book. As far as I could tell by the blurb this plays after the main trilogy and is about Day’s brother Eden. I still hope that we’ll get Day and June though because I’m still not okay after reading the ending of the trilogy. I mean… that ending! I can’t let it stand like that! Please Marie Lu, give me something good! I beg you! T_T

4.) „The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue“ by V.E. Schwab

51029834. sy475

This book has been on my TBR ever since it was an ARC and I can’t wait to pick it up! I heard so many great things about it. Funnily enough I also heard a couple of negative reviews by now, so I’m very curious if it will live up to my expectations. The premise sounds way too good though and since I loved all of Schwab’s books so far I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy this one too. I guess the only way to find out it by reading it. 😉

5.) „Darius the Great Is Not Okay“ by Adib Khorram

37506437

I recently found this in my library and instantly snatched it from the shelf! *lol* I heard so many great things about Adib Khorram and since he recently released „Kiss & Tell“ I thought it’s about time I pick up one of his books and start reading! XD He might actually become one of my new fave authors if I end up loving his books so fingers crossed my prediction will come true! Very curious if this is going to be great! (yeah, that was a subtle pun. ;-P)

6.) „A Very Large Expanse of Sea“ by Tahereh Mafi

38720939. sy475

So far the only books I know by Tahereh Mafi are her „Shatter Me“ books and I absolutely loved the original trilogy. (Book 4 and 5 were okay, but book 6… let’s just say it so didn’t work for me! >_< ) Anyway! I still love the original trilogy so I’m ready to find out how Mafi’s writing style is going to work in a completely different setting. This sounds really intriguing and I’m ready to dive into it! =)

7.) „The Kingdom of Back“ by Marie Lu

45872054. sy475

I gotta be honest with you: I had no idea Marie Lu even wrote this book! *lol* I read so many Marie Lu books already and loved every single one of them („Legend series“, „Batman“, „The Young Elites“, „Warcross“, you name it!) but for some reason I never heard of this one until I found it in my library. Needless to say I had to take it with me! Especially because this seems to be about Mozart’s sister Nannerl and as someone who was born and raised in Austria this is just too interesting not to pick it up! I am intrigued! XD

8.) „Legendborn“ by Tracy Deonn

55507414. sy475

There was a time when this book was all over my feed and I couldn’t escape it so I got really curious and wanted to read „Legendborn“ as well. Thankfully my library finally got a copy of it and I went for it as soon as I found out. (Sorry to everyone who wanted to preorder it, I was really fast. ;-P) As far as I could gather from a couple of reviews this is some sort of arthurian retelling and I always dig them so yep, I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one too.

9.) „Nick and Charlie“ by Alice Oseman

56951957. sy475

This is probably one of the few books of Alice Oseman I still haven’t read. I mean I read almost all of her books by now and I just love them so damn much! (I still hope to get my hands on one of those amazing book cases that has all the books in it. XD I’m sure it will happen one day!) I’m kinda worried about picking this one up though because it’s about Nick and Charlie going seperate ways and I just don’t want them to. *lol* I only want them to be happy and I dunno if I’ll get this in here so yeah… I guess I’ll just have to read it to find out. Please have mercy, Alice!

10.) „Call Down the Hawk“ by Maggie Stiefvater

31373184

So technically I already started to read the first chapter of this book and I’m once again blown away by Maggie’s writing style. I forgot how much I love her lyrical and magical approach of things. ❤ Ahhh! Honestly I could have marked about a million quotes in the prologue alone! I know I’m going to love this and I’m so ready to dive even deeper into the book! I’m going to cherish every single word. =)

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books are on your summer TBR? Did you read any of the books on my list or do we have some in common? Does it always take you so long to pick up anticipated books as well? Do you borrow books from your library or do you buy them? And the most important question of them all: Do you want to participate in my #Klunealong?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

On my 2019 list there are only 6 books left I still have to tick off and I know I can do it! 2022 is going to be the year!!! I know it!

Anyway! What about you? Did you already read some of the books on my list or are you planning to read them in near future? How many books do you want to read in 2022? Are you taking part in the GR challenge? Which releases of 2022 are you looking forward to? Talk to me and let me know!

And as always: Stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

1.) „Felix Ever After“ by Kacen Callender

48849624. sy475

I put „Felix Ever After“ on my September TBR and I intend to start it next week. I’ve been looking forward to read this for ages and I’m so glad my library had it in its shelves! It’s one of the few books I know about that actually have a transgender MC so I’m very excited to read Felix’s story. Also I’m absolutley in love with the cover! It’s so lively and realistically unapologetic!

2.) „Ninth House“ by Leigh Bardugo

52092876. sx318 sy475

To be honest I started this yesterday and I’m soo ready to read „Ninth House“! I’ve never read dark academia before and I heard that a lot of people would place this book in the genre. So far I’ve loved every book I read from Leigh so I’m pretty certain I’ll enjoy this one as well. It might be darker than the others but I’m definitely ready to explore this darker side of Leigh’s writing! 😉

3.) „Railhead“ by Philip Reeve

23532981

The Yoongi to my V spoke so much about this series that I couldn’t help but get curious about it. So when I recently discovered that my library actually has „Railhead“ I just couldn’t resist to borrow it. *lol* I’m sure Sabrina waited for me to read this ever since I spoke about it in my last library haul video on my BookTube channel! So yep, it’s autumn and I’m finally going to tackle this. XD

4.) „Rebel“ by Marie Lu

42121526

So I recently finished to read the Legend trilogy! And after THAT kind of ending I knew I couldn’t let it stand like that! I mean ARGHAADKLFASFJSAKDJS! Marie Lu always kills me with her endings and I just needed more after the finale of „Champion“. Thankfully I stumbled upon this in my library and I have every intention to read it and to hopefully get an ending I can live with. *lol*

5.) „The Gravity of Us“ by Phil Stamper

44281034

„The Gravity of Us“ has been on my radar for quite a while and the idea of a LGBTQ+ book that also tackles the topic of spacetravel is just too intriguing to let it go unnoticed! XD I already love the concept of this and I’m very curious how this is going to play out. Guess I’ll find out this autumn! *lol*

6.) „My Dark Vanessa“ by Kate Elizabeth Russell

55820574. sy475

Now here’s a book that doesn’t only have an intriguing topic but also a very serious one and I’m sure to read this will be tough. Still, I really want to know what’s all the fuss about. A lot of people said that it wasn’t their cup of tea and others said that „My Dark Vanessa“ was hard to read but that the way the story was told is brilliant. So yeah, the controversial opinions about it made me curious which caused this to land on my TBR. You know I can’t resist controversial books. *lol*

7.) „The Guest List“ by Lucy Foley

51933429

I really don’t know much about this book except of that it plays on an island and that it’s about a wedding. Oh yes, and that it is a mystery thriller. XD So I guess it’s fair to say that I know next to nothing about „The Guest List“. It was a goodreads choice winner of 2020 though and lots of people spoke about it back then. For me that’s enough reason to give it a try as a Halloween read! 😉

8.) „Mexican Gothic“ by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

53152636. sy475

And here comes my second Halloween read for this year. This entire book gives me a haunted house and cursed family vibe and I don’t know if you already know this about me, but I LOVE vibes like that! *lol* I’m the first one to read a book about a house with millions of hidden doors and even more hidden secrets about its owners. XD So yep, this is going to be fun. Hopefully.

9.) „Heartstopper: Volume Three“ by Alice Oseman

43449920. sy475

After all the darkness (or gloom and doom if you want to call it like that *lol*) I need something light and nothing is better than Alice Oseman’s „Heartstopper“! My library recently got volume three and of course I had to borrow it. I’m really looking forward to be reunited with Nick and Charlie! Because those two boys are precious!!! ❤ (Plus: The entire cast of „Heartstopper“ is amazing!!)

10.) „Love, Creekwood“ by Becky Albertalli

53239539. sy475

I wanted to read this for what feels like a lifetime and this autumn I finally decided to go for it! I need more of Simon and Blue and I’m really curious what happened after the two former books in the Simonverse! I guess this will be some sort of epilogue that will hopefully give me all the fluffy feels and will make me very happy. No high expectations and no pressure. Really, Becky! *lol*

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books are on your fall TBR and do we have some in common? Do you have special books you want to read for Halloween and if yes, are they very creepy? As you all know I’m a scaredy fox and I’m always looking for nice horror books that aren’t too heavy. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Hugs’n’kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs

hugs'n'kisses or dismissed by the missus

Hey there, my lovelies!

The last book I read („Radiance“) was a really nice surprise so I thought I’d go for the next round! 😛 I still feel like I’m not doing this often enough but I’m getting there. Especially because my TBR is growing again and I really, really need to reduce it. *lol* The struggle is real my friends!!! >_<

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 292, so for instance I’ll pick 29, 105 and 241)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (29 – Snow Like Ashes, 105 – Gold, 241– Dangerous Girls)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Dangerous Girls: I’ve been curious about this one for quite a while and since my Gansey loved it I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy this too!)

One to kiss and keep, (Snow Like Ashes: I’m not ready to read this young adult fantasy book so I’ll just kiss and keep it. XD)

One to dismiss and weep! (Gold: This paranormal fantasy romance doesn’t sound bad but I’m just not in the right mood to read it right now. Maybe one day it will find its way back on my TBR for now I’ve to say „goodbye“ though. 😉 )

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

By now it feels like I’m delusional with my hope to reduce my TBR to 375 books. *lol* But I’ll still try my best! XD After this round it are 392 once again. T_T But I just can’t help it! There are just too many great books hitting the shelves soon and of course they all end up on my TBR. It’s one step forward and two steps back. *lol*

Preparing my Book List 2020 & The “How many books of my TBR 2019 can I pack into the last 4 weeks of the year” challenge! ;-P

Hey there, my lovelies!

As some of you might know I always make a Book List (which I don’t follow) for the upcoming year and I thought this year I might go for it pretty early. XD Last year it was some sort of last minute thing but this time around I want to plan it better so I figured I might just go for it now. 🙂

I know, I know, I’m still not done with My Book List 2019 but I’m working on it with my „How many books of my TBR 2019 can I pack into the last 4 weeks of the year“ challenge! And before you ask: Yes, this is an actual thing! *lol* You can join me if you want! I’m sure I’m not the only one who just realized that there are way too many unread books on „My Book List 2019“, right? Come on, throw me a bone here! 😛 *lol*

Anywayyy! Moving on!

What I was about to say is that I’m planning to read 42 books next year, one book for every week of the year. And even though I’m going to set my goodreads challenge on 60 books I decided that I’ll once again only settle for 40 fixed books this year. So here’s where you come into play: I want you to give me some book recommendations because I’m only choosing 33 books myself and the other 7 books are up to you! 😉 (It’s 7 because I like the number. Like the 7 deadly sins, 7 days of the week, 7 colours of the rainbow (I especially like that one and what does it say about me that I thought of the 7 deadly sins first? *lol*) Never mind! What it comes down to is that I want to read seven books that YOU chose for me! 😉

I’m basically open to any genre but I might confess that I’m not big on autobiographies, self-help or religious books. So there’s that. I hope I’ll get lots of recommendations from you. Just comment on this post and if you feel like it, it can be even more than one book. In the end I’ll put all your suggestions into a bowl and will pull them out blindly. 😀 This way it should be fair. 😉

I really enjoyed last years recommendations so I hope I’ll discover many great and new books in 2020! Thank you for reading all this (I just can’t seem to be able to write short posts. >_<) and happy reading!!

*hugs’n’kisses*
