Books usually make up a large proportion of my Christmas gifts. This year, I had asked for only one. Which turned into two. Which turned into five. You can relate, right!?

At least I’m putting some new shelves up soon, and will be able to fit all of the extras into my little room without doing the annual book clear-out (don’t make me give away any more books!).

I thought I’d share which books I received with you, and tell you why I asked for each one.

books i have to read in summer 2017.

I have a very surprising fact for you…I have A LOT of books on my TBR! That means my Summer TBR is also pretty large! As such, there are way too many books that I want to read, that reading all of them will be pretty much impossible. So I’ve finally narrowed my list down to the ones that I simply HAVE to read before the Summer is over. The ones that I NEED to put aside time to read!

January TBR + How I’m Cutting Out My TBR in 2017

I am not usually one for making To-Be-Read lists. I don’t stick to them, and I like to read more spontaneously – reading whatever I want, whenever I want – which is sometimes at odds with my pre-planned pile.

However, I feel pretty confident that I know what books I will be reading this month. Which also ties in with my second purpose for this blog post: how I plan to cut out my TBR pile this year.

February TBR | 2016

I have a pretty busy month ahead – how dare life get in the way of my reading schedule!? – but I have a (hopefully) realistic goal of four books for my February TBR.

passenferPassenger by Alexandra Bracken
I have already finished this one (as of 2nd Feb), and I really liked it. I will go into it more in my review, but the slow-paced build up of the story was very nice, if a little inconsistent in places, and I loved the historical elements to it.


night studyNight Study by Maria V. Snyder
I received an advanced copy of Night Study from Netgalley (the UK isn’t as lucky as the US, and it doesn’t come out here until the end of Feb), and I am SO SO SO excited to read it. Maria is my favourite author, and the Study series one of my all-time favourites. I can’t wait to read the latest instalment.



confessConfess by Colleen Hoover
This is going to be the Bookaholic Alliance February book of the month. If you don’t know, this is the bookclub that I co-moderate with some of my lovely bookstagram friends. This is going to be our first month of reading together, so if you want to join in with the fun and read along with us, please check out our goodreads group page! But after reading and loving Colleen Hoover’s book Slammed last month, I am very excited to read this one!


agosA Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab
Obviously this book is on my list. I am so ridiculously excited for this book. I’m literally counting down the days for it to be released. It is one of my most anticipated releases of the year, although it has a lot to live up to if it’s going to be in the league of ADSOM!



So that’s my TBR. What are you looking forward to reading most in February? Do we have any TBR books in common?
