Tackling the TBR Pile! May-June

May 18, 2014 Tackling The TBR Pile 17

TBR Pile


Hello all you beautiful, beautiful people! As I’m sure you can tell I’m in a fantabulous mood and 80% of that is because BEA is in just 9 days! NINE DAYS!!! Cue freak out in 3….2….1….

Excited As Fuck

Yeah that about sums it up.

The other 20% is because Shelly and I have some FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC books we plan to get through for the rest of May and all of June. I originally got this idea from the absolutely amazing Kristen of My Friends Are Fiction (you kick butt ma’am!) and Shelly suggested we make them vlogs! So without further a due here is Shelly’s TBR Vlog!


Books in Shelly’s Vlog:

Written In Red by Anne Bishop
Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
Noggin by John Corey Whaley
Unremembered by Jessica Brody
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
The Archived by Victoria Schwab

And now my TBR Vlog! Mine is longer but if you hold out till the end I pinky promise it’s worth it. šŸ˜‰

Books in Octavia’s Vlog:
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
The Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Immortal City by Scott Speer

Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor
Vicious by V.E. Schwab

And of course, if you made it to the end HIT THE COMMENTS MY LOVELIES! <3

    Shelly!! You need to read Grave Mercy! Holy smokes that book was brilliant!! Also, The Archived is based on Silence in the Library, Donne Noble has been saved, Silence in the Library!?!? How the hell did I not know that?!? Now I need to read that book! Ten is MY Doctor!!!

    Ooooooh, Octavia you are such a sweetheart!! Btw, I also still need to finish Dreams of Gods and Monsters but I’m reading bits here and there cause I can’t handle it emotionally! Hope you’ll love everything on your pending stack, I adored the whole Shatter Me trilogy (and got my international paperback for Ignite Me on TBD!) šŸ˜‰

    Thanks for linking to me šŸ™‚ Octavia…I can’t wait until you read The Kiss of Deception. I want to hear if you love it. You both have some stellar books to read these next two months and BEA! I’m excited for you. It’s like Book Christmas. Shelly– I love Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph šŸ™‚ I hope you enjoy them. Also, I love the Vlog idea.

      No problem! You come up with some fantastic idea and I’d be a crazy person not to push people towards your awesomeness! And thanks for the extra excitement! I’m seriously counting down till the seconds! šŸ˜€

    Shelley, you definitely need to read Faking Normal next. That’s my favorite read of 2014 so far! It’s an absolutely wonderful book. šŸ™‚ The only other one I’ve read is Grave Mercy (which I enjoyed enough to gift a copy to a friend). I’ve heard Written in Red, Since You’ve Been Gone, and The Archived are all amazing.

    Octavia, out of all the books you mentioned, I’ve only read read Unravel Me (which is fantastic). BUT, I will be reading The Murder Complex soon-ish. Because Nikki is an awesome book pusher, I bought a copy of Vicious. I’ll be reading that one this summer! I’m looking forward to your review of Vivian Divine is Dead–I kinda dismissed in the same way you did. Maybe I’ll look more into it, though.

    I love the vlogs, ladies! I hope you continue filming them. šŸ™‚ Have fun at BEA!

    Oh, and Ashes to Ashes BACON. (What a weird combo…)

      Oh we’ll have to compare notes on Vicious once you get around to it! And I seriously was not even a little excited about Vivian Divine is Dead but after reading the back I’m actually excited! Thanks for dropping by and that is a weird combo! šŸ˜‰

    The only book I’ve read out of all of these is Since You’ve Been Gone which I really enjoyed! But then again, it’s Morgan Matson soo.. I should really read Grave Mercy too because it’s been sitting on my shelf for 1+ year. It’s just so big though! Maybe I’ll get to it in the summer… And Vicious! I have heard so much great things about that book and I’m so interested!

    Happy reading guys and have TONS of fun at BEA for me!!!

      I haven’t read Grave Mercy either but I really want too! All the things surrounding Vicious has only made me want to read it even MORE! I really can’t wait to start it and see what all the fuss is about. (p.s. check out my vlog video…I have a small surprise at the end šŸ˜‰ )

    Shelly, I had no idea The Archived was based off a Doctor Who episode!! But I’ll be reading that soon too!

    Octavia, if your a weirdo than I’m too. I bought Shatter Me in paperback and then realized I’ll have a long wait to get Ignite Me. Which is why I haven’t started the series yet because I want to binge read it.

    Love the vlogs, hope you do more of them! šŸ™‚
    Scan… BACON
