October 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! I can’t believe we’re finally in my favorite month of the year, October! I’m ready for spooky things, binge watching all the Halloween movies, and dressing up in all the costumes! But aside from that, I’m excited to finally curl up with a cup of hot coco and read some good books! I’ll admit, September has left me in a whirl wind of playing catch up and to be honest, I’ve gone a little overboard on the books for the month of October. I mean, I really went overboard this time. But that’s okay! I’m going to do my best to read all of these books and get as many off my tbr cart, ASAP!

This month is a little different though! The end of September still has me catching up on reviews, hauls, and basically everything. And since I’m playing catch up, that also includes catching up on taking photos. That means my tbr photo hasn’t even been taken yet. It also hasn’t been taken yet because I have an overly ambitious tbr for this month and I have no idea how I would even fit that into one photo. But it’s fine, it’s fine! We’re getting this tbr up and that’s all that matters! I promise, I will get that tbr photo up as soon as possible, but in the meantime, I hope you still enjoy my tbr for the month of October!

Monthly TBR

September 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! Why yes, I did do a new theme! Tis it not the fall season?! I think it is! Don’t worry, this look won’t be staying around for THAT long. This is just a theme that will only appear during the months of September, October, and November. Anyway, you came here because it’s officially September and with September means a new TBR must go up! So here we are! Now for the record, September is going to be a chaotic month! By now you’re probably staring at me and wondering, “Autumn, what have you done this time? I thought you weren’t going to keep doing this to yourself.” Well, not only do I have a TBR I really want to get accomplished this month, but I have a buddy read set for early September AND I’m going to be participating for the first time EVER in Contemporary-a-thon! It’s a very busy, very stressful, very exciting and anxiety ridden time! I’m a glutton for punishment and I’m an insomniac anyway. So here we are, friends! Hopefully, I will be getting my Contemporary-a-thon TBR up sometime in the near future. So anticipate some changes, new books popping up, and a fun time. But without any further delay, let’s dive into the books and a little bit of what the month of September has in store!

🌻 Currently Reading

Well this is a bit awkward… I finished the book I was currently reading and set aside another book I was currently reading. Ah, mood reading… forever being as unpredictable as the weather!

🌻 To Be Read

Okay, friends! That covers everything so far for the month of September! My Contemporary-a-thon TBR should be going up in the next week or so, keep those eyes peeled! Well, I hope you’re all ready to hop on this ride! It’s going to be a crazy and wild ride, but it’s happening! I also want to take a moment to thank my spouse for helping me bring my ideas to life with this new spooky, fallish theme for my blog! This wouldn’t have been possible if they weren’t able to cipher my rambles and scribbles! But please let me know down in the comments what you’re reading for the month of September and whether or not you’ll be participating in the Contemporary-a-thon this round! As always, I hope your month is full of fall-tastic 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!

September 12th 2017 by Katherine Tegen Books

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!

Okay, Chapterlings! That’s a little bit of sneak peek at my June TBR. There’s so much happening this month and such little time to do everything I want to! 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! ❀️
