TBR | June 2021

Hello guys!

Summer is right around the corner and needless to say, I’m very excited for the warmer weather! And it’s pretty obvious I was inspired to create a TBR list with summery books! Of course I still added a couple of thrillers in the mix, just in case I’m in the mood for something different. So, without further ado, here’s my TBR for June.

  1. O Vale Da Montanha Branca by Endrigo Mignoni
    This book was kindly sent to me by the author and it’s going to be one of the books I’ll be reading next month. I don’t know much about it and there is only a Portuguese version of it yet, but I’ll be sharing my thoughts later here on the blog!
  2. After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid
    A book that has been sitting on my shelf for a while. I admit I bought this in the first place mostly because of the author – I really like Taylor Jenkins Reid’s writing style and I want to read more books from her so this month I’m reading this one!
  3. Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas
    I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now, but I never got to it. I’m a bit apprehensive because it’s a taboo romance, but I really want to keep an open mind while reading this. I’m very curious to see what will happen!
  4. The Silver Road by Stina Jackson
    This book was a recent purchase and I’m very excited about it. I don’t know a lot about it, but the cover and the sinopsis made me curious!
  5. The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager
    This book has also been sitting on my shelf for a very long time, so it’s time to give it some love. I’m finally reading it, I hope it’s good!
  6. Beach Read by Emily Henry
    Maybe it’s because the weather is getting nicer, but I really feel like reading summery books! What’s the perfect way to start summer with a literal beach read?
  7. You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson
    This book was recommended to me by another bookstagrammer! I honestly never paid too much attention to it until she told me it was really good. I got curious so I bought it and I’m reading it this month!
  8. Shipped by Angie Hockman
    This is another book I’m very excited about! And like I said I’m in the mood for summer books so I thought this would be a good pick for this month!

And here they are! This is what I’ll be reading next month 🙂 What about you? What are you planning to read next month? Have you read any of these? Let me know!

TBR | May 2021

Hello guys!

I’ve been in a reading slump for the past two months, but I’m feeling better and I think I’m (almost) out of it – finally! I think this happened mostly because I was reading books I wasn’t super excited about, but I have finally finished all of them and now I’m excited to start a new month with a brand new TBR!

I’m feeling adventurous and I’m excited to read again, so this month I decided to read 8 books. I couldn’t narrow it down. Am I going to read all of them? Well, I’ll try but we’ll see.

I’m currently in a big thriller/horror mood, so I wanted to take advantage of it this month! Still, I tried to add some variety, so in this list we have 1 historical fiction, 1 science fiction, 1 romance, 1 fantasy and 4 thrillers. It’s probably a lot, yes, but it’s okay if I don’t read them all 🙂 

So, without further ado, here’s my TBR for May!

  1. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
    I read about 70% of this book a few years ago, but I never finished it. It’s not that I wasn’t liking it, but I gradually stopped reading at that time. No one’s fault, but mine! I still remember most of the story and I fell in love with it, so I really want to start again and finish it this time. I already know I’m going to love this!
  2. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
    A good friend of mine lent me this book, and I have it for about two years now – I’m ashamed, I know! I just have so many books I want to read, that this one never became a priority. It’s a huge book and I’m feeling a bit intimidated by it, but I really want to face it this month, so I decided to make it my challenge book. Then I can finally return it to my friend ahah!
  3. A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas
    Not a lot to say about this one: I’m almost finishing this series, and I may shed a tear or two in the end, not gonna lie! This is a novella that is placed right after the original trilogy, so I think I’ll finish this quickly. I’ll probably read A Court of Silver Flames next month, because I’m really curious about Nesta! The series is really good, so I have no doubt this will be just as amazing.
  4. Little Darlings by Melanie Golding
    I keep seeing Little Darlings EVERYWHERE. I think it’s a really popular book in the U.K., and I really want to know what the hype is all about. Lately I’ve been in a thriller/horror mood, so I’m excited for this one!
  5. If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin
    Another book I’m very excited about! I also don’t know a lot about it other than it’s a popular thriller in the U.K. and I have heard great things about it. I’m very curious to see what it’s all about!
  6. The Night Swim by Megan Goldin
    Another book I’m very curious about! I also don’t know a lot about this one (and I prefer it that way), but I know it was a popular thriller a few months ago, so I’m expecting it to be a good one. The cover is very intriguing as well!
  7. The Good Girls by Claire Eliza Bartlett
    I don’t know why, but I keep looking at this book. I’m just attracted to it, so I’m taking this as a sign and I decided to finally add it to my TBR this month. I don’t know a lot about this one, so I’m going in with an open mind! Aaaand the cover is really pretty.
  8. Sunkissed by Kasie West
    Sunkissed is coming out this month, and I’m not even going to wait to buy a printed copy. I’m definitely buying the ebook just because I want to read it ASAP. I’m really craving a new Kasie West book, so I hope it’s good!

It’s a lot, yes, especially considering two of them are humongous. But this month I just want to focus on books I’m excited about, and this is the list I came up with! 
What about you guys? What are you planning to read next month? Have you read any of these? Let me know!

TBR | April 2021

Hello fellow bookworms!

Another month is gone, and now it’s time for April – and, of course, for a new TBR list! I usually pick ten or twelve books to read each month, but today I planned things a bit differently. I’m currently in a reading slump and I feel like it’s here to stay for a while, so I decided to slow down a bit and pick only six books to read in April.

It’s funny how something so simple such as picking fewer books was such a challenging task! My to-read book list is never ending, and there are so many books I still want to read but unfortunately time does not stretch! So here are the six books I picked for this next month:

  1. A Cloud Can Weigh a Million Pounds by A.D. Stephenson
    A Cloud Can Weigh a Million Pounds
    was kindly sent to me by the author to review in exchange for an honest review. I’m very excited to read this book soon and I’ll be sharing my thoughts afterwards. I’m craving a bit of science fiction, so this will be a treat!
  2. Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge
    My lovely friend Marina was kind enough to lend me this book! I’ve been eyeing it for a while and when I discovered she had it, I immediately asked her if she could borrow it. This is the first book of a mystery/thriller detective series, and I have high hopes because it’s a very popular book here in Portugal. Detective books are not my favorite, but I’m willing to try this one… fingers crossed!
  3. A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
    I’m loving this series so much and I’m hoping I’ll get to the last book in the next few months! The end of the second book was so good and it got me very curious to know what would happen next. I decided to read only the third book from this series this month because it’s HUGE – but hopefully I can finish it until the end of April. I have a great feeling about this one!
  4. The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
    I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while and the time has finally come! I keep seeing this book everywhere and even though there are some mixed reviews here and there, I still want to give it a fair shot and have my own opinion on it. Let’s see what the hype is all about!
  5. Horrid by Katrina Leno
    Something about this book keeps calling me, and now it’s time to answer! I don’t know much about Horrid, but I really want to go into this book without knowing too much. Let’s hope it’s good!
  6. Namesake (Fable #2) by Adrienne Young
    One of my most anticipated reads for this year! I loved Fable so much and I can’t wait to read the conclusion to this story! I’m always in the mood for a good pirate book, and Fable was exactly that – here’s the full review if you’re curious. I’ve read some Namesake reviews online and so far people are really liking it, so that’s good! And seriously… how gorgeous are the covers?

And that’s it! This is my TBR for the month of April! It feels weird to cut my TBR to an half, but I feel like it’s necessary just because I’m not as motivated to read like I usually am.

What about you? Have you read any of these books? What are your reading plans for April? Let me know 🙂
