Hello everyone! I said I was doing my TBR’s differently (I mentioned it in my Wrap Up), so I’m just going to explain a bit. Basically, I’m splitting it in to three parts. Books I Need to Read/Finish (for commitments, school or something else), Books I Want To Read and Books I Want To Make Progress On. Also, The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman would be on the list as it is the Graphic Novel pick of March for the It’s Not Just A Book Club, but I read it two days ago…. no regrets!
PART I: THE BOOKS I NEED TO READ
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: This has been and is the February and March Classic Pick for It’s Just Not A Book Club. I haven’t even started it yet, so I really need to get on that! If I do finish this, I will be posting a review for it.
- Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes: I am participating in the Conquering Kingdoms Read-a-long hosted by a load of bloggers. From March 3rd we are reading this book (the last one of the read-a-long!) so I will be reading this then!! After I finish it, I will hopefully do a collective review of books 1-4 of the Falling Kingdoms series (this is the 4th).
- More Than This by Patrick Ness: This is a bit of an uncertain one, because another blogger and I are possibly going to read this together, but we haven’t talked about it really, beyond a ‘we should’ and ‘i’d love to’. Either way, if we end up not, this can still be on my TBR 😀
- Angelfall by Susan Ee: This is the Anti-Theme pick of March for the It’s Not Just A Book Club. The Anti-Theme of this month is Apocalypse. I have heard wonderful things about this series and apparently there is a splendid guy named Raffe in it, so I’m very excited.
- DarkIsle by D. A. Nelson: This will be a reread for me and is the Middle Grade pick of March for the It’s Not Just A Book Club. It is about dragons and dodos and other magical beings and I absolutely love it, so I can’t wait to reread it.
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon: This is the Mystery pick of March for the It’s Not Just A Book Club. I typically don’t participate in the Mystery read, but this book was on my TBR and sitting on my shelf, so I figured why not!
- Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari and Eric Klinenberg: I have started reading this book already and am 6% into the book, as I put it to the side for most of February. However, this is the February and March Non-Fiction read for the It’s Not Just A Book Club, so I want to finish it now!
- Rook by Sharon Cameron: This is a reread for me of one of my favourite books of last year. I’m rereading it for a class (we had to pick a book to write a comparative essay on the previous book we had to read, which was Animal Farm for me). I love this book, but with the amount of annotations I am making, it is taking forever to read!
- Hunting Unicorns by Bella Pollen: This is the Adult pick of March for the It’s Not Just A Book Club and seems really interesting, so I’m excited to read it!
- Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers: This is the New Release pick of March for the It’s Not Just A Book Club and I have been wanting to read it ever since the pre-order arrived at my house on the third of February, so I am excited to delve into it!
- The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black: This is the YA pick of March for the It’s Not Just A Book Club and seems right up my alley, so I’m super, super excited to read it!
PART II: BOOKS I WANT TO READ
- Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Last month I read the first four books in this series, so I plan on finishing it off this month!
- The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper: Last month I reread the first book in this series for the Book Club, so I am continuing with my reread!
- Die dunkle Prophezeiung des Pan von Sandra Regnier: This is the second book in the Pan-Trilogie, the first book of which was the first book I finished this year. I am intrigued to know where this goes and it has to do with time travel AND faeries!
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: I have heard a lot of good things about this and got it for Christmas, so I really want to read it!
- The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig: I picked this book up at a local bookshop at the end of February and after I did that I began seeing all this hype. This is also about time travel and I think there will be some romance, so I’m super pumped!!
- Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton: I got this book at the end of January and I follow Alwyn on Twitter and she’s super nice AND I really just want to read this book, hence it being on my TBR!
- The Mermaid’s Sister by Carrie Anne Noble: I’ve been wanting to read this since I got it for Christmas/Birthday last year and I am super excited!!
- The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow: I wanted this book since before it came out in September last year, but Amazon.co.uk never had it, but now that I have prime on Amazon.de I use that more and they had it, so I got it in January and haven’t yet read it.
- Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman: My pre-order of this book came in this month too and I’ve been dying- not literally of course- to read it! Captain Hook backstory? Ships? Love? Count me in.
- The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine: This is a Snow White retelling with dragons and a map and is the first book in a new series… I am incredibly excited.
- Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin: You ready? This is the only non-fantasy book in Part 2 of my TBR. Yep. This is alternate history, Hitler winning, motorcycle races and rebellion.
- Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho: Back to familiar territory now 😉 I’ve, again, been wanting to read this book for AGES. Enough said.
- Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman: Last but not least for this part. Again, got it for Christmas/Birthday, have wanted to read it ever since.
PART III: BOOKS I WANT TO MAKE PROGRESS ON
- A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin: I am on page 334 of this 1100+ page mammoth of a book and I want to read at least until the next Daenerys chapter, which is another 150 or so pages.
- Where Do Camels Belong? by Ken Thompson: I want to finish the chapter I am on of this book. I am currently about 6 or 7 pages away from finishing it, but this book takes a lot of time to read… it is very scientific. I am enjoying it though, I’ve just been reading it since July, which is ridiculous. In April and May, I won’t be joining in on the Book Club Non-Fiction book and will be trying to finish this instead.
- The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (translated & edited by Jack Zipes, Illustrated by Andrea Deszö): Again, I have been reading this since July, which is ridiculous. My plan for this one is to read a story every time I finish a book: I am really enjoying this collection, but because each story is complete within itself, I am not compelled to pick it back up.
And that is it. My TBR comes to a grand total of 27 books, including three that I do not plan on finishing…. let’s just say I won’t get to them all, but I could get to quite a few… I read 22 books in February! What do you plan on reading in March?
