- Name a book title from your TBR for every letter of the alphabet (can exclude words like ‘the’ if need be) these must be books that you have physical/e-book copies of and not ones you intend on getting but haven’t yet.
- Try to include different authors for every single one.
- At the bottom of your list put how many you could fill in (out of 26).
- Tag other people to join in and link back to the person who tagged you.
- As I have been trying to use the library more often, I did include a few library books as long as they were ones I was already planning on borrowing soon.
- I also included a few books coming out in the next month or so that I plan on immediately buying upon release.
Are you familiar with the ‘If you liked this book, you’ll like this one’ recommendation posts? This blog post is a little different as I put my own twist on it. The book on the left is a recent read that I greatly enjoyed. The corresponding book on the right is a book I added to my TBR because I enjoyed the other one so much.
I LOVED The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. A historical fiction taking place in 1940’s France, it shows us how two very different sisters dealt with the occupation of Germany and showed us that love could still prevail in the toughest of times.
Much like The Nightingale, All the Light We Cannot See is a highly praised historical fiction also based in World-War II France. This book is also written in two perspectives and I am excited to see whether Anthony Doerr can interweave these different perspectives into a smooth narrative.
Happy Friday everyone!
For First Line Friday this week, I chose The Poppy War, my current read. First Line Friday is hosted by the wonderful group of girls over at Hoarding Books. Go and check them out!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
I am excited for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic: Books on my Spring 2019 TBR. The next couple months have many new releases that I am really looking forward to.
Title: Truly Devious
Author: Maureen Johnson
Stevie Bell, an expert in true-crime, arrives at Ellingham Academy with a goal. Her new school has a dark history. In 1936, the kidnapping and presumed murder of Albert Ellingham’s wife and daughter is considered one of the most popular cold cases in the nation. The only clue left behind is a riddle, signed with the psuedonym Truly Devious.
At the end of every season throughout the year, I will write about my five favorite reads of the last three months. This will be a check in and foundation for my best-of-2019 list.
This feature will take into consideration the books I read from January 1 to the date this blog post is published. That is 20 books in total. These four titles will not be in any particular order.
*11 out of the 20 books I’ve read so far in 2019 have been books in a series. Due to this fact, each series will only end up on the list once. Due to limited variety, I was only able to choose a top 4 for this season.
I don’t usually make specific TBRs as I typically choose my next book based on my mood. I have been finding it more difficult to make that choice due to the vast amount of amazing titles that have been released recently. 2019 has already been a great year for new releases. By making this list, I hope to help future me make that decision easier. I have read 8 books a month so far this year so I choose 8 books for my TBR, my most anticipated among ones that will help me reach my reading goals as explained in this post.
I am currently rereading the Ember in the Ashes series so that I can read the third and final book in the series, A Reaper at the Gates.
1. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I am currently reading this and hope to finish within the next 2-3 days.
