January 2016 TBR

Today marks the first of the month (and the year!) so it’s time for a new to-be-read list for the month! I am a huge mood reader so this lists are more suggestions of what I would like to get to reading this month than strict reading lists. I also of course don’t expect myself to read all eight books every month.


Anyone else noticing the color scheme in this month’s graphic? So much blue and black! Totally unintentional I swear, though I do love the color blue.

Out of the seven books I read last month, four of them were on December’s TBR list, which is about what I’m aiming for. The books leftover were Elantris by Brandon Sanderson, Armada by Ernest Cline, The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall, and The Young Elites by Marie Lu. I’ve decided to move The Conspiracy of Us and The Young Elites into this month’s TBR as I’ve owned those two books for a very long time. I’ll get to Elantris and Armada eventually.

As for the new books this month, I am already currently reading The Love That Split the World, and my plan is to read See How They Run or Passenger next because those are both books by authors whose events I will be attending this month!


Recent Buys + New Releases: (aka ohmigosh how are these books being released already I’m so happy)

Re-Reads and Readalongs:

Both of these will be read for my continuing Reckoners (Re)Readalong. Mitosis is just a novella (pretty sure last time it took me about half and hour to read it last time) and I may re-read Firefight this month, but I also might re-read it in February so I can go straight into Calamity afterward. I haven’t decided yet.

On the TBR Shelf:

Annnnd I didn’t put Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes on any of these list because I will be reading that for something that you should keep an eye out for in the near future. 😉

What are you planning to read this month?

  1. Ooooh nice TBR! I just got See How They Run and This Savage Song at ALAMW, so I hope to read them relatively soon! Also, I have copies of TLTSTW and TYE but haven’t read them yet. I should get on that soon! I hope you enjoy them all! <3

  2. Not gonna lie, a bit casually jealous of all the shiny books you have on this TBR list!! I have already seen such good things about The Love That Split the World (okay, and that COVER LIKE WOW) and I seriously want to get my hands on Passenger (tbh I’m probably going to pre-order it today because I need that Liam short story!!!) and This Savage Song. Surprisingly, I was one of the few that didn’t *love* The Young Elites but I did pick up the sequel a few days ago, and enjoyed it, so if you’re like me, definitely keep up with the series!

    Also, I’m forever jealous you get to meet Alexandra Bracken *quietly sobs in corner* She is author GOALS.

    Regardless, I hope you have a fabulous January!! <33

  3. OOOH SO MANY AMAZING BOOKS!! The Love That Split The World sounds so amazing, and you HAVE to read The Young Elites ASAP because it’s also amazing!! I’ve just discovered the magic that is VE Schwab, and I’m looking forward to This Savage Song, too! And eek, Passenger hype is scary, but I loved The Darkest Minds, and hopefully I’ll love this, too! 🙂

  4. PASSENGER! AND THIS SAVAGE SONG! AND THE LOVE THAT SPLIT THE WORLD! AND THE YOUNG ELITES! okay your tbr is kinda awesome. so incredibly jelous that you’ll be meeting one of my favorite authors (alex bracken!) but i hope you have fun at her signing!! happy reading, tamaraaaa

  5. The Conspiracy of Us and The Young Elites are absolutely amazing. I hope you end up enjoying them as much as I did! 🙂 And I’m definitely planning to read Passenger and See How They Run this month too. xD Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! <3

  6. Hey I’ll be reading Falling Kingdoms too ;). I just preordered Passenger so if I have time I’ll be reading that towards the end of this month! I hope you enjoy TLTLSTW and that is super cool that you got This Savage Song; a lot of people are looking forward to both :).

  7. I actually have Passenger right now! I’ll probably wait to get around to it though… Maybe closer to the end of the month when my review pile has settled down, lol.

    I’m a little fond of Young Elites even though I didn’t give it a really high rating. 😉

    And speaking of Reckoners…. I still need to read Firefight. ^_^

    1. Yeah, that sounds good! I’m really excited for TYE because so many people like it! And yes you DO need to read Firefight! I liked Firefight even more than Steelheart. Much more worldbuilding and the character development and ahhhhhhh it was so good.

  8. OMG, YOU HAVE AN ARC OF THIS SAVAGE SONG??? *takes a deep breath* Can you tell I’m a little excited for this book? haha. I’m hoping to get to Falling Kingdoms and Passenger this month too. Here’s to hoping we can start the year off with some amazing books!

  9. Ooooo I really can’t wait to read This Savage Song and The Love That Split The World! I’ve heard The Love… Is really, really good. And yes I can’t wait till Falling Kingdoms *zips mouth shut* 😁📚

  10. The Love… and The Young Elites are definitely on TBR. Also The Conspiracy… So basically all of them. I have this Savage Song and it’ll be my first VS book!! I’ve heard amazing things about her work so I hope it’s as good as everyone says it is.

    TBH, i’m a little afraid of passenger because so much hype is starting to put me off from reading it. Right now, I’m reading The Mirror King!

    1. Oh I hope you like This Savage Song! Schwab’s books used to be very hit and miss for me (I really didn’t like The Archived) but I’ve liked her latest stuff and the synopsis is so cool so I’m super hyped. And oh, I really need to read The Orphan Queen at some point!
