The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
My Goodreads TBR list is an overwhelming mess. To organize and control it, I decided to make up my own challenge which I am going to refer to as the ‘Goodreads TBR’ challenge.
These are the steps I took in order to make the following list;
1. Eliminate all books that you DO NOT own.
2. Set aside books that coincide with your monthly and yearly reading goals.
For me, I set apart books that fit within these goals;
– Read 1 Book from my Book of the Month selections a month. (Annual goal)
– 1 Reread chosen from books I read 1+ years ago per month. (Annual goal)
– Catching up on my unread V.E. Schwab books. (April goal)
This is not the topic for this week’s Top 5 Wednesday. I didn’t feel like this week’s topic was right for me. Therefore, I chose a previously used topic that I wanted to share with all of you. If you want to see each week’s topic, you can check out their goodread page here.
I am going to be talking about some of my favorite book covers this week. These five book covers will be based on how aesthetically pleasing I find them.
In modern-day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.
Esta is a talented thief, and she’s been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.
But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.

The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
At the moment, I am reading the first book in the series, The Last Magician. I will most likely claim it as the last book I complete in March. I like to read series together so I will want to immediately jump into The Devil’s Thief.
