Monthly TBR

January 2022 TBR

It’s TBR time again!

Salutations book dragons! It’s that time again where I tell you what has found it’s way into my tbr pile and myself, once again, praying to the gods that nothing (and I do mean nothing) comes to stop me from completing my tbr for this month. Frankly, I tried to keep it small because I’m trying to ease my way back into reading the way I used to, but doing it in a more healthier way, with way less burnout and more satisfaction. A sense of completion, in it’s own way. And who knows, maybe a few extra books will find it’s way onto the this list without me actually listing them. So if you don’t mind short tbrs, stick around and maybe you’ll find something you’re excited for!


Tiger Honor (Thousand Worlds #2) by Yoon Ha Lee
January 4th 2022 by Rick Riordan Presents
Arc was given by Disney Hyperion & NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

“Sebin, a young tiger spirit from the Juhwang Clan, wants nothing more than to join the Thousand World Space Forces and, like their Uncle Hwan, captain a battle cruiser someday. But when Sebin’s acceptance letter finally arrives, it’s accompanied by the shocking news that Hwan has been declared a traitor. Apparently the captain abandoned his duty to steal a magical artifact, the Dragon Pearl, and his whereabouts are still unknown. Sebin hopes to help clear their hero’s name and restore honor to the clan. Nothing goes according to plan, however. As soon as Sebin arrives for orientation, they are met by a special investigator named Yi and his assistant, a girl named Min. Yi informs Sebin that they must immediately report to the ship Haetae and await further instructions. Sebin finds this highly unusual, but soon all protocol is forgotten when there’s an explosion on the ship, the crew is knocked out, and the communication system goes down. It’s up to Sebin, three other cadets, and Yi and Min to determine who is sabotaging the battle cruiser. When Sebin is suddenly accused of collaborating with the enemy, the cadet realizes that Min is the most dangerous foe of all…”

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune
March 17th 2020 by Tor Books 

“Linus Baker leads a quiet, solitary life. At forty, he lives in a tiny house with a devious cat and his old records. As a Case Worker at the Department in Charge Of Magical Youth, he spends his days overseeing the well-being of children in government-sanctioned orphanages. When Linus is unexpectedly summoned by Extremely Upper Management he’s given a curious and highly classified assignment: travel to Marsyas Island Orphanage, where six dangerous children reside: a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist. Linus must set aside his fears and determine whether or not they’re likely to bring about the end of days. But the children aren’t the only secret the island keeps. Their caretaker is the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus, who will do anything to keep his wards safe. As Arthur and Linus grow closer, long-held secrets are exposed, and Linus must make a choice: destroy a home or watch the world burn. An enchanting story, masterfully told, The House in the Cerulean Sea is about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place—and realizing that family is yours.”

Reclaim the Stars: 17 Tales Across Realms & Space by Zoraida Córdova
February 15th 2022 by Wednesday Books
Arc was given by St. Martin’s Press & NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

“Reclaim the Stars is a collection of bestselling and acclaimed YA authors that take the Latin American diaspora to places fantastical and out of this world. From princesses warring in space, to the all too-near devastation of climate change, to haunting ghost stories in Argentina, and mermaids off the coast of the Caribbean. This is science fiction and fantasy that breaks borders and realms, and proves that stories are truly universal.”

Authors include Vita Ayala, David Bowles, Daniel José Older, J.C. Cervantes, Sara Faring, Romina Garber, Isabel Ibañez, Anna-Marie McLemore, Yamile Saied Méndez, Nina Moreno, Circe Moskowitz, Maya Motayne, Linda Raquel Nieves Pérez, Claribel A. Ortega, Mark Oshiro, Lilliam Rivera and Zoraida Córdova.


New year means all the new releases!

And with that, this article is finished! Truly, this will be the year where I’m catching up on 2021 releases and trying to include 2022 releases into tbrs. Again, I love my backlist of titles I need to read (there’s so many titles), but I truly want to focus on titles I missed last year and the titles I’m excited for this year. Hopefully, I’ll be able to read everything I want to read and maybe if I’m feeling good, more reviews or wrap up will pop up with more titles than the tbr for that month stated. Do you have any titles you’re hoping to read this month that you want to share? Tell me about them down below or if you have a tbr list you want me to check out, link it in the comments. Until next time friends, sending you all my well wishes, luck, and of course, love! 💚

Monthly TBR

December 2021 TBR

Honestly, I must have lost a few marbles, not going to lie. I haven’t done a tbr since September and well… that didn’t go so well. Maybe there’s a part of me that really misses doing tbrs piles or maybe I just miss telling you all what I’m hoping to read, hoping to consume. And if I’m being honest, 2021 has been a weird, stressful year especially when it comes to attempting to read. Look, there’s just been a lot of things that have prevented me from picking up books or even thinking about writing articles. But I digress!

It’s not a big tbr, no it’s far from that. With my current situation of feeling under the weather and then on top of that the stress of packing, house renovations, and the holidays looming around the corner, I didn’t want this to be a very large list. You know the ones, those end of the year tbr crunching kind of piles to squeeze in as many books as possible before the year is over? Yeah, those kind of tbr piles. I didn’t want this to be that. So, I put together a kind of casual reading list for this month and if I don’t read everything, then I think that’s okay!


☃️ December TBR ☃️

For the Wolf (The Wilderwood, #1) by Hannah Whitten
June 1st 2021 by Orbit
Buddy read with Destiny at Howling Libraries 💜

As the only Second Daughter born in centuries, Red has one purpose-to be sacrificed to the Wolf in the Wood in the hope he’ll return the world’s captured gods. Red is almost relieved to go. Plagued by a dangerous power she can’t control, at least she knows that in the Wilderwood, she can’t hurt those she loves. Again. But the legends lie. The Wolf is a man, not a monster. Her magic is a calling, not a curse. And if she doesn’t learn how to use it, the monsters the gods have become will swallow the Wilderwood-and her world-whole.

When Snowflakes Fall (The Graysons, #1) by Tara Wyatt
 September 9th 2019 by Tara Wyatt

Divorced single dad Luke Grayson isn’t looking for love. Nope. Not at all what he’d planned on asking Santa for this year. Love is off the table for Luke and has been ever since he had his heart broken when the mother of his son walked out on him without a backward glance. Ignoring the hurt and the loneliness, he’s spent the past several years focused on providing a good, stable life for Ethan while growing his successful carpentry business. But then Dr. Christie Harmon moves to Cheyenne, Wyoming and has Luke wanting all kinds of things he shouldn’t want from the gorgeous pediatrician. Things like long nights, sweet mornings, and whispered promises. Soon, Luke finds himself only wanting Christie under his Christmas tree this year. But Christie’s running from a secret—one that could completely change how Luke sees her.

Merry Inkmas by Talia Hibbert
November 28th 2019 by Nixon House

Cash Evans has come a long way since his troubled childhood, but all the wealth he’s earned as a tattoo artist can’t fix the hole in his heart. He knows that the sweet barista who haunts his dreams is off-limits… But life doesn’t always go to plan. Bailey Cooper is determined to learn from her mother’s mistakes. She’s seen how cruel love can be, and she’s not about to sacrifice her self-respect for a relationship. But when a bad boy with a heart of gold comes to her rescue, she finds herself wondering if this beast might just be her Prince Charming.

Immortal Souls (Immortal Souls, #1) by Phoenix Viera
December 12th 2021 by Koa Tales

A fallen Empire. A forbidden royal romance. An ancient treaty with the Fae. In a world tainted by greed and rebellion, death prowls the shadows of the once glorious Sun Empire, waiting to devour those who dare fight back. Corvus, heir to the most powerful House, is a threat to the Emperor, despite being the dearest friend of Crown Princess Saphyr. When the Emperor forbids their friendship, Corvus forms an Alliance to overthrow him, until betrayal forces Corvus into exile. After the lethal Queen of the Sirens emerges from the secret realm of Sirenibus, Corvus is tempted by an irresistible deal at a dangerous price. Caught up in a conspiracy and a war between light and darkness, can he and Saphyr save the people from a terrible destiny and restore the Empire to its former glory? Or will Corvus have to sacrifice more than he is willing to give? Will his life be enough, or will it also demand his soul?


Okay friends, that’s about all the books for this tbr. As I said, not a very big list of books to read for this month. However, I’m excited to read these and tell you my thoughts on them. What books do you plan on reading for the month of December? Do you have any must reads immediately? Tell me your thoughts in the comments! Until next time; stay cozy and stay bookish! I love you! 💚

Monthly TBR

September 2021 TBR

Who am I to think I can have an actual tbr?! And why did I decide September of all months to attempt my tbr’s return?!

Salutations book lovers! I have been gone for a very long time. I think the last time I made a tbr was… back in December 2020. Time has flown. Literally. Almost half a year has flown by and I’ve barely uttered a word about my reading (outside of webcomics that is). Well, when I felt that first crisp breeze in the air, I knew it was time. The time to kind of… sort of… make an attempt at reading tbr piles again. However…

Currently I’m in a bit of a pickle because the majority of my books have been packed up due to planning to move. So right now I only have ebooks and audiobooks (which I don’t have many of either) are currently more available at my finger tips. It also means I’m prioritizing certain books over others as well. So for dipping my toes back into the tbr pool, I wanted to keep things… small.

Anyway, per usual, chaos is always coming from my finger tips or trailing in my wake. So I hope you don’t mind this small tbr. I’m actually really proud of myself and slowly crawling out of the reading burnout. I mean it, reading burnout is the worst and you should take care of yourselves if you think you’re starting to get it!


Horrid by Katrina Leno
Pub. Date: September 15th, 2020 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Buddy Read with Destiny 💜

Darling by K. Ancrum
Pub. Date: June 22nd 2021 by Imprint

The Simple Wild (The Simple Wild #1) by K. A. Tucker
Pub. Date: August 7th 2018 by Atria Books


I know this was a really short list, but I really am trying to slowly ease my way back into reading. Trying to recover from reading burnout and life has been a real challenge. Though, I can honestly say I missed reading and I’ve missed reading like I used to. So it feels really nice to slowly be easing my way back intro things. And I have a few great titles selected for October, as well. I truly am hoping I can get these three titles read in this month though, but you know, if it overlaps into October… I’d be okay with it. 🧡

October 2020 TBR

Salutations friends! October is here and I’m so excited! There’s so much happening during the month of October and I’m just ready to curl up in a cozy blanket, drink some hot tea, and watch my favorite spooky movies. Also, this is usually the time of year where I’m hyperfunctioning. I tend to pack a lot into my schedule (personal and reading wise), birthdays and holidays start popping up, and my sleep schedule tends to be nonexistent. Despite all of that, I’m hoping my reading for the month of October is still going to be amazing, I’m hoping for some five star reads, and I have a special project, that I’ve kept top secret, hopefully being revealed during this month. I’m truly excited to see what October has in store for me! 🎃


🍁 Currently Reading 🍁

🍁 Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega
April 7th, 2020 by Scholastic Press
Buddy Read with Kayla from Books and Blends 🧡

I’ve really been enjoying this middle grade. It’s got the right amount of spooky, cozy vibes and there’s cats! I love books with cats! Plus, the family bonds and content in the book truly warm my heart, and makes me feel so soft, missing my own family. It’s just a precious spooky read so far!


🍁 October TBR 🍁

🍁 Sweet On You: A Filipino Christmas romance by Carla de Guzman
October 19th, 2020 by Carina Press
ARC provided by NetGalley and HARLEQUIN – Carina Press in exchange for an honest review! 

This sounds like the cutest read and I’m so excited to have an earc of this! I really enjoy books that involve cafe settings and baristas. Plus, the love interest is suppose to be a baker and I’m truly hoping we see them come together with their businesses!

🍁 Slasher Girls & Monster Boys by April Genevieve Tucholke
September 6th, 2016 by Speak

I’ve had this on my backlist for a few years now and I’m hoping to finally read this during the month of October. This sounds like a perfect read for spooky season. With so many authors I recognize and one of my dear friends recommending this book to me, I can’t wait to see the stories hidden within these pages!

🍁 His Hideous Hearts by Dahlia Adler
September 10th, 2019 by by Flatiron Books

Edgar Allan Poe is one of my favorite poets and I know he’s one of the most commonly referenced writers during spooky season, but I have always loved Poe’s work. So when I heard there was a retelling anthology out, I had to snag a copy. So, I’m keeping my finger crossed this spooky season that I can read it during the month of October.

🍁 Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton
August 6th, 2019 by Grand Central Publishing

Another book that sounds absolutely amazing and a book that was gifted to me by my spouse. This sounds so good, has a unique perspective (one I don’t think has been written from till this book), and it’s supposed to be filled with humorous moments!

🍁 Capturing the Devil (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #4) by Kerri Maniscalco
September 10th, 2019 by JIMMY Patterson

Oh the shame! Can we just pretend this isn’t really on my tbr for this month? I’ve been meaning to read this book ever since it released. Unfortunately, I’ve been avoiding this conclusion because I’m not ready for the reading hangover this book is going to put me in. However, this is one of the five books I’d like to read before the end of the year and I really need to get it read!

🍁 Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
June 30th, 2020 by Del Rey
Dragons & Tea Book Club October Pick 🐉

I’m so excited for this book! Everyone I know has really been loving this book, recommending it to me, and even though I’m not a big horror/thriller reader, I want to read this before I start placing this in the hands of those that I love and cherish.

🍁 Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton
September 18th, 2018 by Margaret K. McElderry Books
Buddy Read with Robin at Paperbacks and Planners 🧡

I’ve had this book on my backlist for a year and it’s only recently that someone told me there’s demons in this book. And so me being a lover of books with demons, I was screaming, “Hell yeah!” I’ve heard only good things about this book and I’m so excited to be buddy reading this book with my friend, Robin.

🍁 Ninth House (Alex Stern, #1) by Leigh Bardugo
October 8th, 2019 by Flatiron Books
Buddy Read with Robin at Paperbacks and Planners 🧡

Another buddy read with the lovely Robin! I have been looking for someone to buddy read Ninth House with. I’ve heard so much through the grapevine about this book that I didn’t want to pick it up unless I was buddy reading it with someone. Robin being a lovely person, agreed to put this off till October so we could buddy read it together. I’m so grateful for her and I’m excited I get to read this with her.


🍁 Readathons 🍁

As you know, Latinx Heritage month is still continuing during the month of October. The last day is October 24th. I’m currently participating in the Latinx Book Bingo and after I finish Ghost Squad, I should have bingo on the board. The Latinxathon and Latinx Book Club are still taking place during the month of October, as well.

Image

I know there’s a few spooky readathons happening during October, but I wanted to highlight Fortnight Frights Readathon (which runs from Oct. 18th – Oct. 31st), hosted by Seji at The Artisan Geek. Seji has put so much time and effort into this readathon, they made an amazing announcement video, and can find all the announcement posts on the Fortnight Frights Twitter. I’m hoping to participate myself and I wanted to encourage you all to do the same.


Okay, Chapterlings! I have a pretty ambitious tbr for the month of October and it’s probably going to be a very hectic month, to say the least. This doesn’t even show all of the books I’m hoping to read for this month. There’s so many books I’d love to read, share my thoughts on, or buddy read with fellow readers. Spooky season is truly my favorite time of year even though it’s so brief, I want to savor it as much as I possibly can. What are your plans for the Spooky season? What books do you have planned for your tbr? Come chat with me about it in the comments below! Until next time, keep it spooky, I love you! 🧡

Monthly TBR

July 2020 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! Yes, I’m putting myself through it once again! July is here and it’s coming for me in every which way. For starters, my month is going to be kicking off with a full packed schedule. On July 3rd, 2020 I’ll be guest appearing on Bethany’s Twilight/New Moon panel to talk about the Indigenous representation, then I’ll be celebrating my spouse’s birthday on the weekend so expect me to be a ghost during that time, and then at some point (and you didn’t here this from me) Michelle from Thor Wants Another Letter wants to hold a Q&A with Brody from Et tu, Brody? and myself. So many things are happening this month. I also have some buddy reads that are currently in the works with some incredible people. As well as, OMG She’s Indigenous has announced our July pick (you can find the details down below)! Plus, I have some arcs I’m really looking forward to reading.

Now for the shark in the water… The 2020 Reading Rush is here, once again! So, I barely, just barely survived the Stay Home Reading Rush. My last minute scrambling was a hot mess, but I survived, somehow! Now, you would think I learned my lesson from last year and the Stay Home Reading Rush, but we have all concluded that I’m a glutton for punishment and of course those badges would lure me in! So here we are. Counting down the days till crunch time, but this time I’m prepared. Hopefully I can get everything read.

So before we get into the haul, I’m going to link some new sources that you can click on to help support organizations. Even though my media profiles and many other people are getting back to normal posting, things are far from over. Any support is better than no support and it helps make a difference. As always, make sure you’re using your platforms, using your voices, and doing what you can.

April 2020 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! Finally April has come and I am back! So back in March I made a Life Update which is very unusual for my blog, but I felt is was necessary to make that post. In that post I got very personal and opened up a little about the things that was happening behind the scenes in my life. Even though I was posting reviews, I stepped back with posting any articles on my blog (aside from that life update) that felt personal. Even my other social media platform forms suffered a little from what was happening. With everything happening in the world right now, I made sure that I finished up the few books I wanted to read for March and took the rest of the month off from reading. Now we’re in April and there’s been so much happening! There’s also so many exciting things happening this month and I can’t wait for you all to be a part of it!

So I’m officially back! April is going to be a very busy month for me! Make sure you check out my blog post about Supporting Authors while in Self-Isolation because I go into a little detail in that article of the things happening later this month. All of that aside, I have some amazing books lined up for this month, but I have a feeling some of them are going to be put aside for other books I’m excited for. And I had one last minute addition added on. Regardless, this month is sure to be an exciting one for reading and other bookish things! Now without any further delays, let’s get to the books!

March 2020 TBR

Remember that one time where I said I was going to take a month off to rediscover my love for books and video games, feel safe in my space again, pull myself out of the horrible reading slump February put me in, and take that month to catch a breath and start fresh? Yeah…me either!

Salutations friends! If that introduction was any clue, I have done it once again! Back in the middle of February I made an announcement to all my friends I do buddy reads with that I was taking the month of March off. No buddy reads, a small tbr, feeling good and safe in my space again, and coming back in April feeling refreshed. Things didn’t go as I planned. Basically, I have a full March TBR and a Backlist Readathon TBR for the month of March. I talked about this in my February Wrap Up, February was (is) my worst month so far for 2020. A lot of things happened in my personal life that really affected me and there were a few things in the book community that really took a toll on me as well. I never voiced it, I never talked about it with my friends, but I will be making another post on my blog going into a little more detail. Essentially, a few people in the book community came into my space and was harassing me about a certain arc that I had received from a publisher. February ended with me feeling very unsafe in the book community, second guessing my reviewing process, and really put me in a negative head space. So I’m really nervous about having a ambitious tbr for the month of March and about a lot of things right now.

In total, I have nine books on my tbr for the month of March with two new releases that I’m hoping to get to. It’s pretty big and pretty ambitious especially since I’m very aware of the number of pages for each book. It’s a lot of pages, but I really, really want to get to most of these books. Some of these books are anticipated reads and I’m really hoping that one of these books, if not the majority, pull me out of this reading slump and remind me how much I love escaping into other worlds. So, without any further delays or going off on a random tangent, here is my March TBR. Enjoy!

I can’t believe this is my TBR for the month of March! I’m excited, I’m nervous and anxious, and I just really want to read all of them this month. March is certainly going to be a wild and chaotic month, reading wise and I’m kind of here for it. But that is everything for my March TBR, I hope your tbr is just as wild and chaotic as mine. Plus, I’m super excited for the release of Tigers, Not Daughters by Samantha Mabry! I have been telling so many readers about this book that I’m sure they’re sick of me talking about about it. Please feel free to tell me down below some of the books you want to read for March or if you read any of these books, come tell me your thoughts! Until next time Chapterlings, may March be kind to us all, I love you! 💚

Monthly TBR

Backlist Readathon TBR

Salutations fellow readers! We are in a new month with a brand new theme and it’s that time, once more! I am at it once again where I’m probably biting off more than I can chew by adding a readthon to my March reading plans. However, I think I’m better prepared for it this time by only having three books on my TBR for this readathon. Of course, the real question is can I read all three books within a week or did I, once again, set myself up for doom? Who knows! We’re jumping on this wild ride anyway!

In case this is the first time you’re hearing about this readathon, The Backlist Readathon is being hosted by all the ladies listed below (so make sure you check out their videos and give them some love). This readathon will take place during the second week of March, March 9th to March 15th. So you’ll have a full week to cram as much reading as you can or as much light reading as you can! Whatever books you decide on, it’s sure to be a fun time for everyone participating.

Okay, Chapterlings! That covers the books I’m hoping to read. As you can see, each book covers a wide variety of the challenges. So hopefully I can at least read two of them, fingers crossed! But let me know down below if you’re participating and what books you may be trying to read. Until next time, let’s tackle these challenges together, I love you! 💕

Monthly TBR

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!

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! ❤️
