Books Left Unread

Welcome to my blog post where I talk about the books I have been meaning to read, but just have not yet. You know what I am talking about – the books that have remained unread for various reasons yet when you see them you think, “You know, I really need to read that.” Instead you get distracted by another book, series, or something in your TBR pile. It happens to the best of us. I want to spotlight those books in the hope that I can persuade myself to move them up on my TBR list.

This week’s post is dedicated to:

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

 

want to read this but I haven’t yet. I didn’t enjoy the first book as much as everyone else so that means I am afraid I won’t like the second. 😦 Did you read this? What did you think?

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

 

I have always been curious about this book but wondered if I will struggle with it since it is translated. If it is anything like the movies (the original European movies, not the US movies) then I’m not sure I will be able to handle it. Intense. Have you read this or are you interested in reading it?

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, #1)

 

I will not lie – this has been on my TBR for years. I have been fascinated with this type of story from the moment it was announced… but I struggle reading Jane Austen so it has sat on my shelf. I also haven’t seen the movie so I have no clue if I will even like this one but I can’t seem to forget about it. Have you read this or is it even on your radar?

February/March Monthly Wrap Up

books

Hello everyone! Welcome to my February/March Monthly Wrap Up. I feel like I dropped the ball by not doing one of these for February so why not combine two months and make me look even more awesome? HA!

Books I Read

I felt like a reading champ this year! There are some amazing books out right now and I have been able to snag them through OverDrive, physical/earcs, or Audible. Here are my stats: 56 books completed. I finished far more audios than physical but I am completing physical much faster than I have before.

43 – Audio

13 – Physical

There were some absolutely amazing books that I was able to finish in the above list. I even believe I have two Top Books of 2017 in that list, can you guess what they are?

February/March Book Events 

In February I attended my first book festival of the year: North Texas Teen Book Festival. I was not able to attend any other book signings due to a really hectic work schedule. 😦

April Book Events

TeenBookCon was April 1 and it was amazing! There are other signings I hope to attend.

How about you? What did you read in March? What bookish events are on the calendar for you?

The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig

The Fire Sermon (The Fire Sermon, #1)

 

I’m a sucker for a good dystopian and this looks right up my alley. But sadly I’m afraid of the let down since the last few dystopians have flopped for me. Have you read this? What did you think?

My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix

My Best Friend's Exorcism

 

This story really has my attention, but I just can’t bring myself to start it. Why? Probably the fear of being let down. 😦 Have you read this one? What did you think?

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler

What We Saw

 

I have an ARC of this book sitting on my shelf. I received it from someone because the premise really captured my attention. Apparently it wasn’t enough to make me grab this off of the shelf. It seems to be getting good reviews on GR so maybe I should give it a chance. Have you read it?
