Hi and Happy New Year!
I thought I would start the new year with my January TBR. I have prelims in mid January so I don’t plan on reading much other than history textbooks in the first few weeks, therefore this will be shorter than usual.
I got all the descriptions from Goodreads as per normal.
A book I didn’t finish last month:
Crave (The Clann #1) by Melissa Darnell
I am 75% of the way through already and I hope to get this finished off quickly. So far I am enjoying it. The only reason I have not finished it yet is because of studying. This is also doubling up as the series I want to finish as well because this 4 part series really excites me and I can’t wait to get into it more.
Savannah Colbert has never known why she’s so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It’s as if he’s a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she’s destined to fail.
For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back different, and suddenly he can’t stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences.
A series I have started and not finished:
The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
I am reading the first three in the series for my English dissertation and I have so far only read the first Storm Front. I really enjoyed it and hope to enjoy the others just as much.
Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Reasonable rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.
Harry Dresden is the best and technically the ‘only’ at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal capabilities, they come to him for answers. For the ‘everyday’ world is actually full of strange and magical things – and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a – well, whatever. The first six Dresden files novels will be published over three months – a great introduction to Harry Dresden, a modern-day wizard who manages to get into some seriously tricky situations.
A new standalone:
On the Fence by Kasie West
I bought this on Depop a couple of days ago because enjoyed one of her other books By Your Side and I am excited to get into this one now as I said in a tag the other day I would like to read more from her.
For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows—including her longtime neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn’t know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and BeDazzlers. Even stranger, she’s spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.
To cope with the stress of faking her way through this new reality, Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with Braden by the fence that separates them. But their Fence Chats can’t solve Charlie’s biggest problem: she’s falling for Braden. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.
That’s all. Like I said at the start – I know it is short but its a busy month and I hope to get more done in February. This year I really want to complete my monthly TBR’s so I am making them shorter than last years so they are more manageable. If I finish all of these and need something else I have a handy TBR jar to grab from.
That’s my first post of 2018.
I hope you all have a great year – no matter how last year was for you I hope this one supersedes it.
Thanks and Happy Reading,
