The Book Wishlist

Greetings,

Being a bookworm isn’t exactly the easiest hobby to have. It’s very costly, if I say so myself (while my bank account will second my statement). There are constantly new books being released throughout the year. And you must have them! But you know you shouldn’t. What with the other 500 unread books on your shelf.

I am a massive spender on books. Very rarely do I buy books from charity shops, I always buy from Waterstone’s or some other bookshop online. Then, we get to the point where we just don’t have the funds to buy anymore so we make wishlists!!!

Today, I have decided to share with you guys the books I have on my…

  1. The Last Beginning by Lauren James
  2. Gemina by Amy Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
  3. The Outsiders by S E Hinton
  4. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
  5. Girl Up by Laura Bates
  6. Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit
  7. A Million Worlds With You by Claudia Gray
  8. Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray
  9. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
  10. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
  11. Unboxed by Non Pratt

I swear, ones the reading pile that I have reaches single digits I will pile it up sky high with new books! I can’t believe that it’s been three months since the last time I bought a book. I am having withdrawal symptoms!

I keep itching to buy books, and instead I have started to buy more and more notebooks! I mean in a week I went ahead and bough 5 different notebooks. Ones I wont be using until probably in three months time. Depending on how much content I manage to plan in the next few weeks.

It’s madness. Mother even banned me from buying anymore books and notebooks until I finish the ones that are already in my possession.

2017 TBR Book List

Hello lovely readers,

It’s Monday, and we all know how we feel about Mondays. Since, I haven’t been the best at keeping up with my schedule I have decided to make a random post listing the books I have decided to read this year.

With my Goodreads challenge stating I am aiming to read 75 books this year. I kind of want to bump it up to at least 80 books, just so that I could read the majority of the things in my bookshelf. Honestly, I don’t know what I was thinking when I kept on buying books, upon books, when I have a full library of them in my own home.

Mind you, it is a pretty big list. These includes books I have had on my bookshelf for roughly two years now. So you could probably imagine how many I have to read.

Without further ado…

TBR | February 2017

Hello lovely readers,

We are o the second month of the Year! Time sure does fly, irrelevant if you’re having fun or not. For my official first post of the month, I thought I would bring back my monthly TBR blog posts. 

After my not so successful reading month on January, I have made it my mission to read as much books and to review a number of books this month. Also, to help me with my dealing with the TBR pile that I have accumulated in the past year – I made a TBR jar. Pretty self-explanatory. 

I have utilised said TBR jar, and picked 5 books I am going to be reading this month. 

  • A Boy Called Hope by Lara Williamson
  • A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  • Alice’s adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  • The Memory Book by Lara Avery
  • Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton

Looking at this list, I am really hoping that I will be able to read all of them. I have the half-term to binge read the majority of these too. We shall see. 

Furthermore, I will be making another post with regards to the TBR jar! It’s such a wonderful idea that was inspired from Vivatramp‘s own TBR jar idea. Which is great in so many ways!!! 

Well, that’s all for now my lovelies and I will see you soon in my next post! 

Jhanielle

P.s. 

These posts will be updated in a later date to add graphics and photos. I am trying to organise myself better and incorporate some of my own art in my posts to make it that bit more colourful!
