THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What is currently on your TBR pile?

Up Next I Think I’ll Read…


Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I know I should continue on and finish out my Smashing Series September until the 1st. However, I don’t expect to finish another series by Saturday after I finish The Beauty of Darkness (The Remnant Chronicles, #3). I guess I’ll just continue my series through October and finish this month out by reading our Hype or Like Friday BOTM. I’ve only read one other of Rowell’s books, Fangirl, and while I enjoyed it, I didn’t have any plans to read another one of her novels. But this one is a fantasy and not contemporary so that’s a major plus in my book! Get it, my “book”? Haha! Feel free to join our Hype or Like Friday group on Goodreads HERE.

What Is Currently On Your TBR?

Hahahahahaha y’all really do not want me to list all of the books that I’ve bought these past few months and haven’t read yet. We would be sitting here until Christmas going over all of them. So for the sake of everyone’s sanity, I shall just list the ones that I plan to read over the next month. A few will be leftovers from Series Smashing September with a sprinkle of randoms thrown in for fun.

Yeah, that’s right – I’m the only loser who has owned Six of Crows since March and hasn’t read it yet! I figured I’d just wait and until Crooked Kingdom was released and binge read the duology. Also, I CANNOT wait to get my hands on The Midnight Star! This trilogy is one of the best and darkest that I’ve read, and I am so excited to see how it ends. If you haven’t read Marie Lu’s The Young Elites series – DO IT. You won’t regret it.

What’s next on your TBR? What are some books that you’ve had for a while but haven’t gotten around to reading yet? Have you read any on my list? Leave a link to your Musing Monday post in the comments!

  1. I read about 40 pages of Carry On and I am not thrilled. It’s literally Harry Potter fanfic. I think Rowell needs to fork over some dough to JK Rowling. It’s going to be a DNF for both me and Donna. We’re not feeling it at all. I hope you like it more than we did. 🙂 Oh and I’m reading ToG. I’m about 40% into it and not hating on Celaena yet. How about that? Lol ToG is actually going to be my 100th book to complete my Goodreads challenge. I never thought that would happen. Crazy. 🙂

    1. Yeah, I knew it was supposed to be a fictional version of the girls fan fiction in Fangirl. I’m gonna give it a shot but I’m going into it with low expectations so I don’t get let down too much… Haha oh really? I can’t wait to hear what you think about it when you finish. I’ve heard the series gets better as it goes along.

      1. I’m kinda bummed because I bought all of Rowell’s books on sale and now I’m hearing a lot of them have disappointing endings. Go figure! I’ll be sure to write a review when I’m finished. I was originally hoping to snark about the book, but I don’t think I have much to complain about at this point. 😂
