January 2016 TBR!

Hey! After my weak reading performance in December, I am determined to start off 2016 strong! I think I like this TBR pile because all of the books I picked out are all so different from one another.

1. Animal Farm by George Orwell

I have actually already read this as it is only two hundred pages. A review to come tomorrow I think, I feel happy that I started this year with a classic- a seriously interesting one at that.

2. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I am already enjoying this story so much and I’m only a hundred pages in. I don’t know, but I can just feel that this story is going to good!

3. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J.Maas

I need to read this book, it’s getting a little out of hand now.

4. Wrath of the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The cover for this book is really stunning and I am intrigued by how different this retelling is going to be. Hopefully I like it because this book already has a good going Β with it being a duology as well.

5. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Again, no explanation I just need to read this bloody book!

6. Da Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliot

This is the book I got with my December Owlcrate box and it does seem really interesting and I’m a sucker for Historical fiction.

That’s what I am planning to read this January but hopefully more if I manage my time better than I did in 2015. What are you planning to read this month? Comment below, I’m interested to see what are the first books of 2016 people are reading.

I’ll write soon!

    I love your eclectic selection of books. I recently read my first Patrick Ness book, The Knife of Never Letting Go, and was blown away by his characters and unique writing style. EVERYBODY talks about how amazing The Wrath and the Dawn is that I’m almost afraid to read it lest it doesn’t live up to the hype. Then again, I said that about Hawaii and when I finally visited, it was just as good, if not better than everything I’d heard about it. And, yes, I did just compare a book to Hawaii. πŸ˜‰

      Yeah, I loved Patrick Ness’ writing in More Than This- just really superb! I know I’m a little scared to actually, but I haven’t delved deep into the plot or anything so hopefully I still find myself surprised. You’ve been to Hawaii?! Totally jealous right now hahahaha. Don’t worry I like that comparison anyway πŸ˜„

    I absolutely loved “The Wrath and The Dawn” AND “A Monster Calls” and you’re right there is no explanation need for reading Patrick Ness, haha. Also I’m planning on reading “Da Vinci’s Tiger” soon as well! πŸ™‚
