Truth is I haven’t been going on my big book shopping hauls since I found out I was pregnant. So my TBR list is still the same with no add-ons to the list. With that being said I thought I could share with you all how I choose my next TBR book to read and what’s currently in my TBR list still since I haven’t added any new books to my bookshelf.
This is my TBR jar for books that I still need to read. What I do is I get a piece of paper and write down the title and the authors name on the paper and fold it up and add it to the jar. I recently started doing this for this year, Instead of staring at my shelf and trying to decide what to read next I just select a piece of paper at random. It’s a new fun way for me to pick my next book to read. I currently have 52 books on my TBR list and hoping to finish one book a week. I would like to select a new book every Thursday (That’s if I stick to my reading schedule)
Since I have 52 books on my TBR list I will share the top 5 books I’m really looking forward and finally finishing this year.
Circe By Madeline Miller
Caraval By Stephanie Garber
Shadow And Bone By Leigh Bardugo
Sea Witch By Sarah Henning
Small Fry By Lisa Brennan – Jobs
Well, I’m gonna leave it at that and get as much reading done as possible. Thanks so much all and look forward to seeing your recent books added to your TBR.

Happy Saturday bookworms. Today is a gloomy day here in Vegas and I can’t get enough of it. Perfect reading and cleaning weather. I have a confession to make! I absolutely love to read but in the past three days, I been addicted to playing Call Of Duty WW2 Hordpoint, Which is zombies running after you and you always have to focus killing the other teammates while holding a certain spot down to earn points. I swore to myself to get back on track tonight and read my current read to have it finished in three days.
Every month I go on a big book haul on the 25th or around that time. This month I will be going on the 24th which is our Book Club meeting at our local Barnes And Noble and that’s when I’ll do my major book shopping. I thought I would share with you guys my Halloweenish books on my list for this month.
The Monkey’s Paw By W. W. Jacobs
I remember reading this when I was a kid in school and I loved it! I barely remember what happens or the full details but what I do know is that whoever holds the monkey paw you have three wishes…that come with major consequences.
The Witch’s Daughter By Paula Brackston
The Return Of The Witch By Paula Brackston
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children Series By Ransom Riggs
I think I’m going to leave it at that for this month. I’m not really into scary stories however if it has a great, twisted story, something I was not expecting towards the end then I’m all in for it. If you heard of any of these books let me know. TTFN.
Title: One Too Many Lies
Author: L. A. Bowen
Publisher: West 44 Books
Publishing Date: December 1, 2018
THANK YOU NETGALLEY AND THE PUBLISHER FOR THE COPY OF THIS BOOK. ALL THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.
This book was not for me. The book is written in verse. I felt this could have been written better with more of a story to it. The book was not going anywhere with the characters or nothing too exciting happens.
Paige is the girl writing as if she is in her journal. She writes down everything that is going on around her. She and her two best friends tell little white lies to people around them if it is about their age or where they are staying the night.
The story is short and maybe could have been a bit longer so we could get more from the characters. But all in all, I almost DNF the book but kept going for hopes that it was going to get better with the plot but nothing came of it.
I gave it 1/5 for the lack of character growth, not very detailed or scripted. The story of the girls and the white lies was just not very interesting or exciting for me.
