*As I was planning this, a new video by Riley Marie did the same thing! Make sure to check out her video. :)
If you are new here or aren't aware, I do not do well with TBRs! I'm a mood reader, but hopefully I'll get to a couple of the books that goodreads suggests.
For this TBR, I'm going to goodreads and randomizing my want to read list. I'm going to pick the first book on the list, and then refresh. If a book comes up that is not yet released, or that I don't own and isn't at my local library, then I'll just choose the next one on the list that is easily available to me. Since I am a mood reader, I decided to pick seven books in the hopes that I will read two of them.
1) Uprooted by Naomi Novak
This book was all the rage in 2015. I was interested in it (I mean, it's a standalone fantasy!) but I was overwhelmed by all the hype surrounding it. Now that talk of this has died down, I'm looking forward to reading this one.
2) Frostfire by Amanda Hocking
I was happy to see that this ended up being one of my picks! I actually checked this out from my local library a year or two ago during the summer, but realized it was connected to a broader series. So, I went back and read the Trylle series by Hocking instead. I don't remember much of the world (besides that there were trolls and my ship sailed), but I'm looking forward to getting back into it!
3) Blood and Sand by C.V. Wyk
Blood and Sand was released earlier this year, and I was really looking forward to it! I wasn't able to read it just because of schoolwork, so I'm happy I'll be getting my hands on the book this month. Alyssa really loved this one, and I trust her opinion, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this book, and hopefully love it.
4) That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston
Okay, so this was on my to read list, but I honestly had no idea what it was about. EK Johnston is an author I've wanted to read for a while now, so hopefully I'll get to this and enjoy! After skimming the synopsis, I know that the book takes place in an alternate reality in which the British Empire still has colonies in North America.
5) Zero World by Jason M. Hugh
I won this in a giveaway on Lauren's blog years ago, and I never got around to reading it! I was always interested in it, but I think I was hesitant to read it due to the size and the fact that it isn't a YA book. However, I am ready to expand my horizons!
6) Breathe by Sarah Crossan
I added this book to my list so long ago that I barely know what it is about. I remember that there is little oxygen left, and that a group of people are trying to make it to a city where there is abundant oxygen, but they don't have enough oxygen to make it through the trip. The premise (if I got it right) sounds interesting, and the book is part of a duology, so I'm not committing myself to a huge series either.
7) The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
And we've got a contemporary! Thank goodness! I'm in a contemporary mood, as I've been reading a ton of fantasy recently, so this might be the one I pick up first. I've heard amazing things about Emery Lord, so I hope that this one doesn't disappoint.
Have you read any of the books above? What did you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
