Here are 12 Anticipated Reads for July 2019

I honestly can’t believe it is almost July, where has the time gone?! And I thought that July was a light publishing month based on my pre-orders but HAHAHA joke’s on me and my wallet. Thankfully I was able to request a couple for my local library, and I genuinely hope I find time to read all of these books in this lifetime.

Please excuse me while I wallow under the crushing weight of my TBR because at this point I will never be able to read everything and that is so sad!

Here are 8 Anticipated Reads for June 2019

Can we talk for a moment about the fact that it is almost June and the year is nearing its halfway point? Where is time going? And more importantly can I use this to my advantage to travel to 2020 for some much needed sequels? Yes I am still thinking about certain cliffhanger endings and I need answers yesterday.

June is the month that lots of mysteries tend to be published, which is good because I am in the mood for some sleuthing πŸ•΅πŸ», but have no fear because we still have some solid science fiction and fantasy releases hitting the shelves as well! Prepare your wallets for this month’s list of books I need to get my hands on.

Spring Cleaning Tag // tfw you hoard a tag for a year until it’s relevant again

We all know that I like to hoard my tags like a greedy dragon, but this is going to shock you. Almost one year ago Jess and Teagan @ Fiction No Chaser tagged me in the Spring Cleaning tag and I proceeded to hold onto it until it became springtime again. Because of course I did. But I’ve been doing some Spring Cleaning of my post drafts since it is springtime in the Northern hemisphere and it looks like so much fun that today is the day, friends!

If you aren’t already following Fiction No Chaser, you really should rectify that immediately because their reviews are hilarious, boozy, and honest. And they are awesome people to boot. (Teagan I miss you.)

Launch Day Event for Finale by Stephanie Garber

Do you ever buy the whole book series because you are sure that you will love it but never get around to reading it? No? Just me? Okay then.

I have an embarrassing story to tell. I bought Caraval when it first came out because I had a feeling I would love it, but never got around to reading it. Last year I wound up pre-ordering a UK secret cover edition of Legendary because despite not reading the first book I just had a feeling in my bones I would love it. I think you see the pattern and can guess what happened with Finale.

Fast forward to Monday morning (yes, two days ago). I see Stephanie Garber’s tour schedule for at least the tenth time and finally saw that on release day she was going to be about an hour away from me. So I hatched a plan: read the first two books (totaling 839 pages) before 6 p.m. on Tuesday and drive to attend. So that is what I did, and I am here to tell you about it.

Book Haul: March & April 2019

Welcome to two months worth of book haul, friends! Because of my hiatus last month, I didn’t get around to posting my March haul so I figured that I would just do a combined post. I’ve behaved quite well over the last couple of months, all of the books that I bought were pre-orders or from my Mysterious Galaxy YA Subscription! Another big theme is that I read most of them before buying them because I was fortunate enough to receive ARCs, and I was able to support a good number of debut authors. It is also nice to not add to my astronomical owned TBR!

As always, I want to reiterate that you do not need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover. I am quite frugal with everything else so that I can buy books because I love them, but I do not ever want to make you feel bad if you cannot afford to buy books or have poor access where you live.
