Hello dear readers, I’m sure you know how this works by now. All I have to do answer the three big questions.

What have I finished reading recently?

Dice: The Cube that Changes Everything – This manhwa isn’t finished yet, and I had started it a few years ago, but it took me until now to finally catch up to the current chapters.

What am I currently reading?

Of Myth and Shadow by Matthew S. Cox – This is a hell of a long book, but I am slowly making my way through it. I received a copy for a book tour and hopefully plan on finishing it soon.

The Lost Queen – I accidentally requested and was approved for the second book in this series, so I picked up the first one. It’s a bit of a slow read but I imagine I will be done by this weekend.

What will I read next?

This is a tough one because there are so many books I want to read next. I haven’t decided which I will read first, but my next two options are:

Heir of Doom by Jina S. Bazzar – The author contacted me directly for this one and I enjoyed the first in the series. I am hoping the second one is just as good!

Mo Dao Zu Shi by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu – This was recommended to me by a blogging friend of mine Kat (please check her out she’s brilliant). It seems like it would be really interesting even though its a bit outside my regular reads.

What about you, what are you reading now? I’m always looking to add more books to my list to read, so I am open to suggestions.

Let’s chat in the comments or on social media!

  • S. by J.J Abrams: I know there was a reason, because I remember being excited to add it to my TBR, but I can’t remember what that reason was.
  • Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult: I don’t even remember this book existing. I literally couldn’t tell you one thing about this book. I have no recollection of it at all.
  • Angelfall by Susan Ee: Another book I don’t remember existing. I looked up the author and she sounds good, but I don’t remember why I liked this book…I’ll have to look it up.
  • Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: I know there was something about this book that piqued my interest. Another blogger recommended it to me but I don’t remember why.
  • The Road by Cormac McCarthy: I have seen the movie, and I don’t remember liking it. Maybe I thought the book was about something else.

  • Strategy by Lawrence Freedman: A thick ass book about the history of strategy. I can already feel myself hating my 20 year-old self for wanting to read this book.
  • The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri: I’ve heard it is tough to read, and not overly engaging. Some intellectual part of me probably thought it would be a good idea.
  • Les Miserables by Victor Hugo: I bought this book before I saw and started loving the movie. I’m putting it off until I am on my death bed because of an arrangement between my friend and myself.
  • Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell: I hated this book in University and never got around to finishing it all. I read some cheat sheets on it though, and for some reason I decided to keep it around and finally finish it. No idea why.
  • The Atheist’s Guide to Reality by Alexander Rosenberg: I think I had an interest in religion and hating God way back when, but I have grown out of that phase now.

What are some books you added to your TBR and you don’t remember why? Let’s talk about it in the comments, or send me a message on social media.

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Books on My TBR

The usual Top 10 list that I get ideas from didn’t have a topic I was interested in writing this week, so I found a Top 5 idea from Yolanda at Past Midnight, who got the idea from Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, so thank both of you for the idea.

This weeks list is all about the books on my TBR that I am most excited to read. The TBR list on my blog isn’t the complete list, so expect a few that you wont find on there.

#1 The Road by Cormac McCarthy

I vaguely remember seeing the movie years ago, and I thought it was pretty good, so I thought maybe I would read the book. There’s no real reason this is on my TBR list other than I am excited to get away from the fantasy genre for a little bit.

#2 American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman is a great author from my experience, and I have heard that American Gods is a terrific read. Plus, as a Supernatural fan, I am a big lover of the “gods walking among us” idea.

#3 IT by Stephen King

Though technically this is the book I am currently reading, I haven’t gotten too far into it yet, so I am counting it on my TBR list. So far it’s been a great read, and I can’t wait to dive into it further.

#4 Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Of course one of the classics is on my list, especially Frankenstein. A few first hand accounts I have heard make me want to read this one as soon as possible.

#5 Top 10 Games You Can Play In Your Head by Yourself by D. F. Lovett, J. Theophrastus Bartholomew, and Sam Gorski

I actually found out about this book through a YouTube channel that I follow, and the idea sounds really interesting. It’s supposed to help your brain function, and I often find myself passing the time with meaningless tasks because I am bored.

Are any of these books on your TBR? If not, what books are you most excited to read? Let me know in the comment section.
