Hi everybody, Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
This month I am going to be reading more books for “pleasure” and less for review. While I still have a few ARCs to read this month, I am going to try to read some books I have on my shelf that I bought recently on BookOutlet.ca (see my hall here!), or another book that has been sitting on my shelf for a while.
Reading Progress Prior to this Month: 8/12 books completed (8 = read, 12 = 2018 yearly goal)
I will be participating in “Lalathon” – which you can watch all about here – hosted by BooksandLala! Lala is one of my all time favourite BookTubers, so when I heard she was hosting her own Readathon, I knew I needed to join in on the fun! The whole point of Lalathon is to read some of her all-time favourite books that you have never read before! You can read the entire list here. It takes place from November 1st to November 9th. When I went through the list, I noticed some books that I have had on my shelf for a long time that Lala had rated 5 stars, so I thought this was the perfect time to read them. I owned 7/150+ books that were on her list, but I chose three that I wanted to read right now for Lalathon.
The first book I plan on reading is “Girls of Paper and Fire” by Natasha Ngan. I have been reading some amazing reviews for this book over the past few days, and I can’t wait to start it! Lala also raved about it one of her recent videos, and I usually agree with a lot of her opinions on books we have both read. I received an ARC of this book from Hatchette Book Group Canada, which I was so incredibly excited to receive! I plan on posting my review for this one next week, so I will be starting this book as soon as this post goes up. I hope this one lives up to all of the hype!
I have been wanting to read this book for AGES! I swear I have put it on several monthly TBRs over the past few years. I read one of Patrick Ness’ other books called “The Rest Of Us Just Live Here” and I posted a review for it a few years ago, which you can read here. I really hope I get a chance to read this during the readathon because I have always found the concept SO intriguing.
This has been on my TBR for over 4 years. I remember first starting my book blog and trying to read this, but I don’t think I ever ended up getting more than half way through. This is something that I think I would really enjoy reading now, so I hope I read it and enjoy it!
Will you be participating in Lalathon? If so, let me know what you plan on reading for it in the comments! I will be updating you daily on my progress for this readahton on Instagram, so make sure you follow me!
I recently unboxed a HUGE BookOutlet.ca order (which you can read about here), and this was one of the box I was SO excited to find on the website! I read the first couple of chapters last week, and it seems super good so far. I need to read the books I have on my Lalathon TBR before I continue this one, but I plan on finishing it sometime this month.
The second and final physical ARC I need to read this month is “Five Feet Apart” by Rachael Lippincott. Even though this book is coming out during the middle of November, the movie has already been filmed and is scheduled to come out in March! I believe the main boy in the book is being played by Cole Sprouse, which is very exciting! Like “Girls of Paper and Fire”, I have heard nothing of amazing things about this book, so I hope it lives up to my high expectations! Thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada for sending me an ARC!
I read A TON of my NetGalley books last month, so I am in good shape with my NetGalley shelf. However, this book came out on October 1st and I still have yet to read it. I read a few chapters of it a few weeks ago and it seemed really good, but I wasn’t in the mood to read something like this. I plan on picking it up this month, as I plan on posting my review for it in the coming weeks.
Those are all of the books I hope to read this month! Do you plan on reading any of these books this month like me? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear what you guys plan on reading this month… you never know, I might end up reading it, too!
Good Night Book Owls!
