My 2018 TBR List (Bookworm chats)

Hello hedgehogs, it’s SPRING TIME! *checks calendar* Ookeeeey not officially apparently, but it’s started getting dark at *holds breath* SIX O’ CLOCK. So that basically means it’s spring, teehee. And also happy Pancake Day! After writing this I’m definitely going to enjoy some sweet pancakes. 🙂

Off the topic of food and onto books and stuff though; I’ve been lacking in reading motivation recently, maybe it’s the cold winter months that make me hibernate, but after looking at my stack of books on my wonderfully decorated bookshelf ( 😀 ) that I still need to read next, I’m back into the swing-a-things. Let me tell you about my To Be Read list my friends, (wow on a side note that really does sound kinda creepy, hm.)

This lil ‘bookworm chats’ is going to probably become a thing, so sit back in your comfy chair (yes I know it’s comfy) and enjoy my 5 to be read..

  1. Number one is one I’m about 300 pages in, which is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (yes I do HAVE to keep you all updated on my Haz Potter progress so do NOT question me.) 😉 And I have thought all the HPs get pretty much straight into the action, but this one is a bit more slow to reach the climax, which is made up by the fact I get to know all the characters more incLUDing the owls, hehe I am an owl fangirl and proud.
  2. Onto books I haven’t started, Chasing the Stars by Malorie Blackman is definitely my next choice because it’s been sat on my shelf for so long since I’ve been absorbed by Haz P (I need to stop shortening words, yes?) Blackman has always been one of my favourite authors, since reading the Noughts and Crosses series (if you’ve read them please start a conversation with me in the comments about them!!) which meant I couldn’t get sleep before I knew what happened, so I kind of have high hopes for it- which probably isn’t a good thing because I hate being disappointed by a book! (Think of a grumpy cat’s face, yup that’s me when I am let down)
  3. The House of MountfathomNigel McDowell : GRR this book! It makes me so frustrated because parts of the story I really like the writing style, but the fact I mentioned it in a bookish post WAY back in October/November just speaks for itself in the fact I still haven’t finished it and it only has 400 pages (big writing). I’m determined to burrow my way through it though because I love a good story about magic.
  4. And now we go onto the OFFICIAL PRETTIEST COVERS OUT THERE, which includes The Snow Angel *gasps*…*and faints* I recieved this for Christmas and it feels so precious, plus the story sounds oh-so intriguing and thought-provoking, and with a summary that features the line ‘the power of nature to heal us’ I really am excited to read it. I’ve also previously read Lauren St. John’s books, and her stories about animals are so incredible.
  5. A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge- I chose this book as a Christmas Present after being drawn in by its ~breathtaking~ cover, and then read the blurb which sealed the deal on the very spot in the bookshop, mnyehehe. 😀

When a creature dies, its spirit can go looking for somewhere to hide.

Some people have space inside them, perfect for hiding.

I mean, do I need to explain any further from that quote? No, didn’t think so. Basically; me=EXCITED BOOKWORM.

  1. Oo, the cover for Snow Angel looks so nice! And I agree with the Order of the Phoenix- I know it is so many readers’ favourite in the series, but I did find that it was a slow start to the action!
    And hey, chatting about books is what I do! I’m actually in a bit of a reading slump though, I am on book 3 of the Red Rising series (Morning Star), but I’m worried my slump will stop me reading Iron Gold- the new book which was released earlier this year! Hopefully I can get my mojo back.

    I hope you enjoy all your books though!

  4. I keep meaning to check… Was it you who recommended the wildwood trilogy ages ago? I’ve just read them all back to back as I got so hooked on them. They were a fab recommendation, and more my nephew aged 11 has just read the first one and has ordered the others from the library. I think I’ll have to check out the snow angel from your list. I love a pretty cover!

    1. YES I did recommend them! Oh really! That makes me so happy because they are still one of my favourite trilogies and I couldn’t put them down either, so I’ll definitely be re-reading them! Oh I’m so glad! 🙈✨ I’m also very excited to read the Snow Angel, it’s been on my TBR for way too long! xx

  6. It’s always nice to sit down and chat about books! HP and the order of the phoenix does take a while to kick into the action I felt. Could be cause it’s the longest out of the seven, but it does sometimes drag. Still a great read overall! Also, I loved Noughts & Crosses! It’s been so long since I read them, but I got so caught up in the series! Thanks for reminding me of it!

    1. Yes I do agree Angela!! I’m halfway through Order of the Phoenix and I’m only just getting into the action really haha! 🙈 Oh the noughts and crosses is up there with my favourite book series so I’m glad it reminded you and you’ve also read them! 💛✨

  7. Eek, I am so happy that you are back ☺️! This post was, as usual, very fun to read and your photography is amazing 💕! Anywho, I have been wanting to read some of Malorie Blackman’s books for such a long time 😅! Are there any books in particular that you would recommend?
