November 2016 Reading List

It’s that time of month again (a.k.a. the start of the month) which means another book list, and another pile of books to add to my never ending TBR pile! I’m slowly falling behind on my TBR’s as school consumes more and more of my life (if I’m being honest, I’m spending most of my time reading textbooks nowadays!), but reading, writing and photo taking remain fun hobbies of mine. Basically, writing this is my break from the daily grind!

If you missed my October Reads, be sure to check out my Instagram page (@onepageatatimebooks) or visit my Book Reviews page to see a summary of my most recent posts! 

This month, the following books are on my TBR:

  1. The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby (released October 25th)
  2. The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid (released November 1st)
  3. Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley (released November 22nd)
  4. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosemund Hodge (released September 27th)
  5. Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (released October 18th)
  6. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (released January 19th, 2016)
  7. The Reader by Traci Chee (released September 13th)

In addition, I’ve decided to add a little section to these monthly Reading Lists wherein I list my Top 3 Books from the previous month as recommendations! Please be sure to let me know what you think of these books! Links lead to my reviews of these books – please be aware not all reviews are spoiler free! 

  1. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
  2. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
  3. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

What’s on your November TBR? 

August 2016 TBR

Shockingly, I actually read almost everything on my July Reading List, despite working full-time and being enrolled in a couple courses! Despite this, I’ll be keeping my August TBR short, as I will be going to Europe (eek!) for half the month, and likely won’t have a ton of time to read while adventuring!

Court of Fives

The books at the top of my To Be Read list this month are: 

  1. Ink and Bone: The Great Library by Rachel Caine
  2. Paper and Fire: The Great Library by Rachel Caine
  3. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
  4. Court of Fives by Kate Elliot
  5. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rolwing
  6. The Falconer by Elizabeth May

And let’s not forget that The Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir will finally be released (in Canada) on August 30th! I doubt I’ll be able to finish it in one day though, so I suppose I’ll save that one (officially) for my September TBR!

If you’re looking for more reading inspiration, please check out my other recent Book Lists, which all feature both new releases and some of my all-time (although maybe not as recent) favourite reads!

Happy Reading Bookworms! 

A Torch Against the Night

June 2016 Reading List

With summer just around the corner, and the Spring semester (finally, mercifully) over, I’ve finally got the time to look ahead to what I’d like to read, and what I haven’t managed to find the time to read quite yet. As with May, I’m still playing catch-up on on the books I missed out on during the school year. The local librarian (who has known me since I was 8), always says that the usage of the tiny library branch by my house increases as soon as I finally make my way from university. Whether or not that’s true, I can’t say.

As always, if you’ve got any reading suggestions for me, please be sure to post them in the comments! I’m always looking for new books to read!

So, my new (ish) must-reads for this month (if you haven’t already read them) are:

  1. Dream a Little Dream: The Silver Trilogy #1 by Kerstin Gier
  2. Dream On: The Silver Trilogy #2 by Kerstin Gier
  3. The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
  4. And I Darken by Kiersten White (Release Date: June 28th, 2016)
  5. Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh (Release Date: June 7th, 2016)
  6. The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

Plus (of course) some books I didn’t have a chance to get to in May (sadness), because school and work got in the way:

  1. Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
  2. Forest of Ruin by Kelley Armstrong
  3. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
  4. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
  5. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
  6. The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

In addition, I would like to take a moment to discuss my posting schedule for June. Despite school being (almost) over, I will now be working full-time, on top of an unreasonable amount of other things. While I like to be busy, this does limit the free time I have available to me which, sadly, means that I will be posting less book reviews. I will be aiming to stick to a consistent schedule of new posts every Monday and Friday. Friday will be a special feature- Flashback Friday! I’ll be posting reviews of not-so-recent books or series that I loved, hated, or found to be otherwise notable.

Happy Reading Bookworms!

May 2016 Reading List

I’m going to start things off nice and simple, with a list of books I’ve been reading, or will be reading, in May. Likely, these books will be among some of the first of my reviews, since they’re on hand (in St. Catharines, and not in Guelph), and fresh in my mind.

May is always one of my favourite times of year- its a pretty hard hitting month for book releases, what with everyone trying to get their book out there in time for summer, so it means lots of new reading material. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a win in my book. Also, if I’m being honest, I slacked on the reading during exams, and now I’m playing catch-up.

My Must-Reads for new(ish) releases this month are:

  1. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas (if you haven’t read the first book in this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, you’d better add that to your list as well!)
  2. The Crown by Keira Cass (again, another sequel, so make sure you check out the other books in this series prior to reading this one!)
  3. Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima (okay, so maybe May is the month of super awesome sequels…?)
  4. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
  5. Forest of Ruin by Kelley Armstrong
  6. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
  7. Cress by Marissa Meyer
  8. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Apparently, in case you’ve failed to notice, I’ve got a thing for sequels this month. Some other books I’ve stumbled upon recently, which aren’t quite as new onto the scene, but which are definitely still worth a read:

  1. Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
  2. And of course, its sequel, The Invasion of the Tearling, also by Erika Johansen
  3. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
  4. I’m nothing if not consistent… Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch
  5. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
  6. Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Well, that’s all for tonight. Let me know if you’ve any reading suggestions of your own!

Happy Reading! 🙂
