Monthly TBR

August 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! I’m finally getting my August TBR up! I know, know, but the way I see it, better late than never! So, remember how last month I said it was going to be an easy going month and then I jumped into a readathon that was right at the end of July? Remember that? So…that’s definitely NOT happening this month! I refuse to go overboard this month with my reading. Actually, to be fully honest with you, I think I have a pretty good TBR picked out for this month. A lot of the books I picked out this month are books I’m anticipated or really want to read. In fact, one of them has been such an anticipated release that I’m almost finished it! So for the month of August,it should be smooth sailing, but there is a bit of pressure because most of the books I’m reading this month are ARCS and they just so happen to be releasing in September. Be prepared because I’m going into full crunch mode to make sure I get these all read and hopefully have reviews up soon. But enough of my talking, let’s jump into this month’s TBR!

P.S. You may have noticed that I’m no longer reading Wilder Girls. And you’re right! I just finished that a couple days ago and hopefully you’ll be seeing my thoughts on that book soon! I’m still processing my feelings and I do have one more review to go up before that one goes. So be patient and anticipate them both coming soon!

🌻 There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool

🌻 To Be Read

🌻 Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

🌻 The Nanny by Gilly MacMillan

🌻 Boundless by R.A. Salvatore

Okay, friends! That’s everything for my August TBR! I swear, this month is going to be a lot less stressful, I promise! No readathons, no sprints, just good ‘ol reading and reading if I’m in the mood for reading. And this time, I’m definitely making sure I pay more attention to my mental health while reading and not overdoing it. I have my snacks at the ready and I’m excited for the rest of the month ahead! But, let me know some of the books you want to get to this month! I would love to hear some of the titles and would love to hear recommendations! ❀️ And as usual; may August be full of reading and five stars reads, I love you! ❀️


Monthly TBR

July 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! July has finally come and I’m hoping for a less stressful and far less busier month than May and June have been! I’m super thankful for things to hopefully start winding down which means I can finally start catching up on some serious reading. While I’m still playing catch up with articles and reviews, my reading game is going strong and hopefully I’ll soon be wrapping up my second book read for the month of July! However, I have so much in store and I can’t wait to share everything with all of you! So let’s jump into my July breakdown!

Before I get started, there are a couple books that aren’t featured in this TBR. Mostly due to the fact that I’m already in the middle of reading them, close to finishing them, or have finished them. So here’s a quick recap of what I’m currently reading and what I already finished!

Okay, friends! That does it for this TBR! I know that felt super short and I probably could have gone into a more rough draft of when I might be getting to these books. However, in all honesty (no masks or deceptions), May and June have left me a little burnt out and my reading has been a little all over the place. The fact that more comics and poetry books have been popping up on my wrap ups is never a good sign when it comes to my reading especially if the whole wrap up is mostly comics or graphic novels. So keeping my month open to allow myself room to breathe and take things at a slower pace for my own sake is what I’m aiming for, but don’t worry too much, friends! There will be buddy reads, reading updates, and hopefully some reviews you all will love. Plus, I have two Book Club books I’m reading for this month! So that’s two exciting things to look forward to! That does it and I can’t wait to see everyone’s TBRs for this month! As always, I hope this month is filled with lots of reading for all of us and of course, I love you! ❀️


Monthly TBR

June 2019 TBR

Holy strawberries Batman! I’m in a real jam this time!
May has officially come and gone. There were so many wonderful moments, but now we’re hitting summer and that may have caused me to bite off more than I can chew. I can’t believe I’ve done this to myself! I finally made a very ambitious TBR and June is definitely the month where I’m all booked! June is probably going to be my biggest month for reading, if not for reading activities. The pressure is on friends! I have so much planned and there’s a few events that I have to check on to see when they’re scheduled before I say anything. Just know there’s a lot of things happening behind the scenes that when the time comes for it, I’ll be sharing it with all of you. So pay attention to my social media!

So let’s talk a little about my June TBR because this is the entire list. Half of my TBR I’m keeping secret just because I like surprising people. I’m like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get from good ole’ Malli! But seriously, it’s going to be great and the second half is based off the fact that June is Pride Month. So keep your eyes peeled for some of those reads. Outside of my secret TBR, this month you probably noticed some books that were supposed to be part of my May TBR. Yeah…those didn’t happen. May was a wild ride and I’m just surprised I read as many books as I did for that month. So three of those books have ended up on my June TBR. I’m determined to get them, they sound so good and right up my reading tastes. Now, let me share with you some of my picks for the month of June!

This time there will be no side bar TBR just this TBR and my Pride Month TBR. So wish me luck as I embark to binge read and have month jam packed of exciting new events and reads! I hope you all have an amazing month of reading and pride! I love you! ❀️

May 2019 TBR

Oh my stars, it’s officially May! I can’t believe we have made it this far into the year already! Where has the time gone?! I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this yet, but April was a whirlwind and April was a bit of a sad month for reading. However, this month is going to be better and all I’m going to be doing is focusing on eating, sleeping, reading, working, and pushing out book reviews. It’s going to be intense, I may die, I may possibly have to hook myself up to a coffee machine so I can run on caffeine, but it’s fine, we’re fine, everything is fine! Not only that, but this is also my birth month (if I haven’t mentioned that yet, either) so May 25th will be the day I’m a bit kinder to myself than the rest of this month. So I hope you’re following me on social media because a lot is going to be happening that day! So pray for me because I don’t know how I’m going to survive this month and the roller coaster I’m about to get on!

So let’s dive into this monthly TBR! I’ve kept it kind of small this month just because I am in the middle of reading four other books right now! Two of these books are arcs and they take top priority out of everything else I’m reading right now. However, I’m really hoping I can get to the other books on my TBR because if you haven’t heard yet this month of May is Asian Pacific Heritage Month here in the US. While I will be rereading Dragon Pearl for the Dragons & Tea Book Club, I really wanted to have more than just one book on my TBR for Asian Pacific Heritage Month!

So without any further adieu, let’s get into this TBR for May!

Alright Chapterlings! That about does it! I may compile a side TBR in case my reading mood goes a little all over the place (like it usually does). Hopefully I will breeze through all of these books and have a few unexpected books for you if all goes plan, but in case I don’t, expect most of these books and their reviews should be happening this month. So that about covers it everyone! I look forward to seeing what all of you are reading for the month of May! I hope your month has started off fantastically and as always, I love you! ❀️
