The ever present problem for me as a bookworm is that I never have enough space for books, but I love books and there are always new and exciting ones coming out. Since joining bookstagram and following a bunch of authors on Twitter, my purchasing habits have gotten a little bit out of hand. Last year there were a couple of months where I went a little crazy and in hindsight, I don’t even want to know how much I spent on books last year.
Finish Harry Potter Re-Read
Last year, in 2018, I made plans to re-read Harry Potter. I read the first four, so I partially succeeded in this, but I still have three to go. I want to finish this up, but the waiting list for the Harry Potter audiobooks from the library is so long! I am still really wanting to get through them though.
Ace of Shades
Ace of Shades was advertised to me as one thing, and then it turned out that the thing it was advertised was a super tiny part of the book. I was really, really looking forward to the scenario described in the synopsis, the shadow game, and it was barely a part of the whole story. That being said, I still really enjoyed the book, but I just felt like it wasn’t completely what it was advertised and that was disappointing to me.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
I read this one because the movie was coming out and I thought that I ought to read the book before the movie came out. I wasn’t expecting much because I was in this place where I wasn’t feeling YA contemporary, but this one just blew me out of the water. I was obsessed with the story and read it really quickly. I loved, loved, loved it. It was sooo cute and Lara Jean was a fantastic protagonist. It made me really rethink me thoughts on YA Contemporary, and made me open my mind a bit more!
I’m trying to keep my TBRs pretty simple this year. I want to read a Shakespearean play, a book from my TBR jar, and one or two that I want to read. This month I have compiled a TBR of a few of these. So, without further ado, let’s jump into it!
