A Turkey Day TBR-November 2021

Happy November everyone! Are you excited about the month of ritual sacrifice? You know, the month when we offer up a Turkey to our ancestors and hope that the things we are thankful for remain the same or get better.

Yeah, ever since that episode of Buffy where Anya calls Thanksgiving a day of sacrifice I have never been able to look at it another way again. Not gonna lie, I kinda like it that way.

I would like to say I have a themed TBR for you this month, but alas, I do not. So on to the books!

The Unbound Empire by Melissa Caruso

While winter snows keep the Witch Lord Ruven’s invading armies at bay, Lady Amalia Cornaro and the fire warlock Zaira attempt to change the fate of mages in the Raverran Empire forever, earning the enmity of those in power who will do anything to keep all magic under tight imperial control. But in the season of the Serene City’s great masquerade, Ruven executes a devastating surprise strike at the heart of the Empire — and at everything Amalia holds most dear.

To stand a chance of defeating Ruven, Amalia and Zaira must face their worst nightmares, expose their deepest secrets, and unleash Zaira’s most devastating fire.

I read the second book in this series last year and then just never made it to this one! I hope it’s good, especially because I have ordered her two most recent books. So, here’s hoping!

We Could Be Heroes by Mike Chen

Jamie woke up in an empty apartment with no memory and only a few clues to his identity, but with the ability to read and erase other people’s memories—a power he uses to hold up banks to buy coffee, cat food and books.

Zoe is also searching for her past, and using her abilities of speed and strength…to deliver fast food. And she’ll occasionally put on a cool suit and beat up bad guys, if she feels like it.

When the archrivals meet in a memory-loss support group, they realize the only way to reveal their hidden pasts might be through each other. As they uncover an ongoing threat, suddenly much more is at stake than their fragile friendship. With countless people at risk, Zoe and Jamie will have to recognize that sometimes being a hero starts with trusting someone else—and yourself.

This book has been on my TBR cart ever since I picked it up from Book Of the Month earlier this year. I’ve really wanted to get to it and just haven’t. Shame on me. It sounds so good!

A Deadly Education by Naomi Novick

I decided that Orion Lake needed to die after the second time he saved my life.

Everyone loves Orion Lake. Everyone else, that is. Far as I’m concerned, he can keep his flashy combat magic to himself. I’m not joining his pack of adoring fans.

I don’t need help surviving the Scholomance, even if they do. Forget the hordes of monsters and cursed artifacts, I’m probably the most dangerous thing in the place. Just give me a chance and I’ll level mountains and kill untold millions, make myself the dark queen of the world.

At least, that’s what the world expects. Most of the other students in here would be delighted if Orion killed me like one more evil thing that’s crawled out of the drains. Sometimes I think they want me to turn into the evil witch they assume I am. The school certainly does.

But the Scholomance isn’t getting what it wants from me. And neither is Orion Lake. I may not be anyone’s idea of the shining hero, but I’m going to make it out of this place alive, and I’m not going to slaughter thousands to do it, either.

Although I’m giving serious consideration to just one.

Another one I’ve been meaning to get to for a while. I’ve never read anything else by the author, though I do have Uprooted by her.

The Night Country by Melissa Albert

With Finch’s help, Alice escaped the Hinterland and her reclusive grandmother’s dark legacy. Now she and the rest of the dregs of the fairy tale world have washed up in New York City, where Alice is trying to make a new, unmagical life. But something is stalking the Hinterland’s survivors—and she suspects their deaths may have a darker purpose. Meanwhile, in the winking out world of the Hinterland, Finch seeks his own adventure, and—if he can find it—a way back home…

I really enjoyed The Hazel Wood, so I have high expectations for it’s sequel.

Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis

The first novel in C.S. Lewis’s classic sci-fi trilogy which tells the adventure of Dr Ransom who is kidnapped and transported to Mars In the first novel of C.S. Lewis’s classic science fiction trilogy, Dr Ransom, a Cambridge academic, is abducted and taken on a spaceship to the red planet of Malacandra, which he knows as Mars. His captors are plotting to plunder the planet’s treasures and plan to offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the creatures who live there. Ransom discovers he has come from the ‘silent planet’ — Earth — whose tragic story is known throughout the universe!

I’ve wanted to read this since I found out that C.S. Lewis wrote a sci-fi book. In fact, I bought the whole trilogy without reading the first book. I have a bad habit of doing that.

Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Nothing is more important than loyalty. But what if you’ve sworn to protect the one you were born to destroy?

Tarisai has always longed for the warmth of a family. She was raised in isolation by a mysterious, often absent mother known only as The Lady. The Lady sends her to the capital of the global empire of Aritsar to compete with other children to be chosen as one of the Crown Prince’s Council of 11. If she’s picked, she’ll be joined with the other Council members through the Ray, a bond deeper than blood. That closeness is irresistible to Tarisai, who has always wanted to belong somewhere. But The Lady has other ideas, including a magical wish that Tarisai is compelled to obey: Kill the Crown Prince once she gains his trust. Tarisai won’t stand by and become someone’s pawn–but is she strong enough to choose a different path for herself? With extraordinary world-building and breathtaking prose, Raybearer is the story of loyalty, fate, and the lengths we’re willing to go for the ones we love.

I have heard such good things about this book, I’m hoping it lives up to all the hype surrounding it.

Pirinesi by Susanna Clarke

Piranesi’s house is no ordinary building: its rooms are infinite, its corridors endless, its walls are lined with thousands upon thousands of statues, each one different from all the others. Within the labyrinth of halls, an ocean is imprisoned; waves thunder up staircases, rooms are flooded in an instant. But Piranesi is not afraid; he understands the tides as he understands the pattern of the labyrinth itself. He lives to explore the house.

There is one other person in the house-a man called The Other, who visits Piranesi twice a week and asks for help with research into A Great and Secret Knowledge. But as Piranesi explores, evidence emerges of another person, and a terrible truth begins to unravel, revealing a world beyond the one Piranesi has always known.

This is a book club pick for the Literarily Wasted book club I’m in. You can find them on Facebook. I love it when I get to read a book I already own for book club!

The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell

On a beautiful summer night in a charming English suburb, a young woman and her boyfriend disappear after partying at the massive country estate of a new college friend.

One year later, a writer moves into a cottage on the edge of the woods that border the same estate. Known locally as the Dark Place, the dense forest is the writer’s favorite area for long walks and it’s on one such walk that she stumbles upon a mysterious note that simply reads, “DIG HERE.”

Could this be a clue towards what has happened to the missing young couple? And what exactly is buried in this haunted ground?

This is another book club pick (yes, I’m in two). It won by a landslide, which is crazy.

Why, oh why am I trying to read 8 books this month? I have no idea. Also, this seems to be the month of books I’ve been meaning to get to for a while. Pray for me, cause I’m gonna need all the help I can get.

A Spooky TBR-October 2021

Well, here we are. Trying another TBR. I didn’t do so badly last month. Especially considering I read a few books that weren’t on the TBR, because I can!

This month I am focusing on spooky themed books, cause October. I’ve never been a big fan of the horror genre, and this month I’ve committed myself to reading quite a few of them.

So that’s going to be fun.

The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix

A group of Final Girls get together to, well, support one another after surviving their own harrowing tales. Until one by one they are starting to be picked off. I loved A Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, so I have high hopes for this one.

Ring Shout by P. Djeli Clark

The Klan’s ranks have grown thanks to dark forces and it’s up to resistance fighters, led by Maryse Boudreaux, a Hellfighter, to stop them. This sounds great!

The Ballad of Black Tom by Victor LaValle

Tom delivers a book to a shop and that opens his entire world to the occult. I’ve heard good things about this book so I have high hopes.

A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill

Noah Turner sees monsters. So does his father. His dad built a horror park dedicated to them. Noah just lets them into his life. But why does this sound terrifyingly cute?

The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling

Vivienne laid a curse on her ex-boyfriend 9 years ago. She didn’t think it would stick. Now he’s back in town and everything is going wrong. It’s a romance and I bought it? Yes! Have I read it already because I couldn’t wait? Also yes! I’ll have a review up on Thursday the 21st.

The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson

Immanuelle Moore does her best to follow the will of the Prophet of Bethel. But when she is lured into the forest outside Bethel, the spirits of the forest offer her her mother’s diary, and her whole life changes. This was one of my book clubs pick for this month and I’m so excited because this was the book I put up for voting! I had been holding onto this one since last year waiting patiently for October to arrive so I could suggest it. Yeah, I regret that decision.

Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

This fifth entry in the Mercy Thompson series is all about the Fae. I won’t go into details, because yeah, fifth in the series. But given that I’ve read it before, I know it will be good.

So yes, I know. There are 7 books on my TBR. What am I thinking? I’m thinking that several of these are shorter books so I should be able to get through those, at least, fairly quickly.

Will I get through every book? No idea. Am I hoping to? Of course I am.

TTT-Books on My Fall 2021 To-Read List

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! TTT “was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.”

Wow. Is this a hard Top Ten Tuesday or what?

I’ll come up with ten books, but that doesn’t mean I’m actually going to read them. Because I don’t always read the books on my TBRs.

And, of course, I just have to remember to add them to my actual TBR’s over the next two months.

That’s not too much to ask, is it?

The Unbound Empire by Melissa Caruso

The final book in the Swords and Fire trilogy, I’ve been meaning to read this since last year! I just never got around to it. Shame on me. The first two books were great, so I have high hopes for this one.

We Could be Heroes by Mike Chen

Jamie and Zoe have no memories, but what they do have is superpowers. I picked this up through Book of the Month a while back and have been wanting to read it for a while now.

A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik

A school that wants you dead. This one has been sitting on my TBR cart for a while, so it’s about time I pick it up, right?

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

The sequel to Mistborn is on my current TBR, and I am determined to read it this fall!

The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix

It seems like the fall is the perfect time for a horror book. Plus I really enjoyed the authors last book. So fingers crossed!

Ring Shout by P. Djeli Clark

A horror book in which some of the KKK are actual demons? Yeah, perfect fall/spooky season read.

The Ballad of Black Tom by Victor Lavalle

All Tom does is deliver a book. And it opens his world to the occult. This fantasy horror book sounded really interesting. And again, a good Halloween read…I hope.

The Night Country by Melissa Albert

I read The Hazel Wood last year and really enjoyed it, so I need to read the sequel. Here’s hoping I remember to pick it up!

A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill

A story about a boy who sees monsters and lets them into his life. Now why does a horror book sound heartwarming? This will be an October read, for sure.

Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis

Who knew C.S. Lewis wrote Sci-Fi? I sure didn’t until I picked this up. I’m looking forward to reading this.

Well, there it is. My fall TBR. Will I actually accomplish something and read all the books on this list? Who knows? I surely hope so. Now I just have to figure out which books I’m going to read in which months!

Oh the choices!

A Very Ambitious TBR-September 2021

Another month, another TBR I am probably going to fail.

I should probably be more optimistic in an effort to actually complete the thing, huh? That might increase my chances?

I mean, at this point, with so many failed TBR’s under my belt, I wonder why I even bother.

Oh, cause it’s fun! And because, apparently, I am a glutton for punishment.

On to the TBR!

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

The first in the Mercy Thompson series. Mercy is a mechanic who just so happens to be a were-coyote. Oh, and she was raised by werewolves. I love this series and have been meaning to re-read it for a while.

Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn

Oh look, re-reading a book I wax poetical about all the time. I recently had to buy a new paperback copy of this, although it is available on Kindle for $2.99. This is the story of Rohan, a desert prince, who is forced to match wits with the High Prince Roelstra after the death of his father. Oh, did I mention the Sunrunners? I love this book.

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

Soon to be released as a series by Amazon, I started listening to this as an audiobook a few years ago, but I never finished it. This is the month I complete it…I hope. Will I finish it as an audiobook or a physical book? I have no idea. But I will do my best!

The Hike by Drew Magary

This is the story of a man who decided to go on a hike. And then it gets weird. This was a book club pick, and I got real excited when they picked it, because I already owned it! Talk about fortuitous.

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

The second book in the Mistborn series, I read the first book last December and I loved it. I know the hubs will be excited for me to read this one.

The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theadora Goss

This is another book club pick! Although I’m a little worried because I ordered this book on Wednesday and it’s not supposed to get here until two days before the book club meeting. Cutting it a little close, dontcha think!

Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune

The story of Wallace, who died, is given a week to cross over. He decides to live his death to the fullest in that one week. I got an ARC of this through NetGalley! Squee! I have much excite! I’ll have a review up for it soon, as I have already finished reading it!

So, a seven book TBR. I can do this, right? I mean, it’s all books I’ve been meaning to read. I can so totally do this.

Book Series I Need to Finish

So I seem to have a problem.

I start a book series, fully intending on finishing it, and then I get distracted by other books and simply don’t finish the series in a timely fashion. Often times this results in me wanting to start the series over and then, repeating the original problem of not finishing the series…again.

Or three new books in the series come out before I get to the end of the books I already do have and have to finish those new books and, well, see above paragraph.

Please tell me I’m not alone in this.

So below is a list of the series I have started, but haven’t completed.

The Hazel Wood Series by Melissa Albert

Alice’s grandmother wrote a book called Tales from the Hinterland. When Alice’s mother is kidnapped by someone claiming to be from the Hinterlands, she must go after her. And thus Alice’s adventures begin. I gave the first book in the first series, The Hazel Wood, 4 stars. One of the few YA books to get such a high rating from me. I liked it enough to pick up the second book (I’ve had it since last year), and the third book is on my Amazon wishlist.

Swords and Fire Series by Melissa Caruso

Raverran mages are closely regulated, and up until now Zaira has avoided being caught. But when Amelia accidentally tethers her, their lives become inextricably bound. I loved the first two books in this series, giving both books 4 stars. I just haven’t finished the last book yet. Didn’t stop me from buying the first book in the authors newest series though, did it?

Mistborn Series by Brandon Sanderson

For a thousand years the Lord Ruler reigned. They were going to overthrow him. Hopefully. I read the first book and gave it 5 stars. I love the fully realized magic system and the world the author created. I’m not entirely sure why I haven’t finished this series yet, but I need to. And the Hubs agrees.

The Wicked Years Series by Gregory Maguire

The story of the Wicked Witch of the West. I love the first book and have the entire series and the second book has been siting on my TBR cart for months. It was even on one of my TBR’s last year.

The Poppy War Series by R.F. Kuang

Rin is a war orphan who won a place at a prestigious military school. This is dark fantasy story about the horrors of war and normally I don’t go for the grim dark of it all, but this book gripped me. I gave it 4 stars and it was one of the first books I reviewed on the blog, back before this was even a book blog.

Crown of Stars by Kate Elliot

The Crown of Stars series is great, from what I can remember of it. I read the first few books fifteen years ago, and then never finished the series, even though I now own them all. I need to get to that. Also, I am of the firm belief that this series should be turned into a TV show ala Game of Thrones (and yes, I know, I still haven’t finished the books but I want a show!). Bonus points to it because this series is actually finished.

The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan (and the last few by Brandon Sanderson)

This 15 book series is largely regarding as some of the best fantasy out there, and I am only halfway through the first book. To be fair, I’m listening to it as an audiobook and that thing is over 30 hours long. Full disclosure, I’ve been listening to it for over a year, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve listened to. I just haven’t finished it yet. Bad Lauren. Also, isn’t that special edition pretty? I’m having a very hard time convincing the Hubs that we need them, cause pricey.

So yeah, there are all the series I need to finish. I’m pretty sure there are more I own or just haven’t read in years. Because books.

What book series have you not finished?

A Month of Myths-An August 2021 TBR

As you can guess by the title, I have decided to dedicate this month to retellings. But not just any retellings. Greek myth retellings.

Why am I doing this, you may be asking? Well, it’s because I have a few of them (re:5) and I want to read them. Plus I bought one I had my eye on specifically for this TBR, so that’s fun.

On to the books!

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

The story of Patroclus, Achilles and the Trojan war. I have been told to expect feelings while reading this. So yeah.

Circe by Madeline Miller

This is the story of Circe, the sorceress from the Odyssey. It sounds fascinating and I’ve had it for a while, so I’m looking forward to reading it.

A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes

The story of the women at the heart of The Trojan War. Yes, another Trojan War story. It’s a pretty famous conflict.

Lore by Alexandra Bracken

Some of the ancient gods rebelled, now every seven years they must walk the world as mortals, only to be hunted by ancient enemies. This one just sounds good, and, bonus, a friend of mine really liked it.

Ariadne by Jennifer Saint

Ariadne is the sister to the famed Minotaur of Crete. This is her story. The minotaur isn’t a story that gets told enough, so it will be fun to read this one.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

The half human son of Neptune goes to a camp for other half human children of the Greek pantheon. I’ve wanted to read this one for a while, basically ever since I saw the movie, which I have since learned is a very bad interpretation of the books.

And there you have it, my TBR for the month of August. Here’s hoping I can finish all of these!

Two Week Trip TBR

If you are reading this, I am on a two and a half week trip with my mom, my niece, and my nephew. We are going to be spending a lot of the time in the car. And while yes, I have brought my Switch with me, it’s battery only lasts a few hours, and even I can only play Animal Crossing for so long.

So I also brought my Kindle with me. I’ve already made the case for the Kindle, or really e-readers in general, so I’m not going to do that here.

I have quite a few books that I haven’t read on my Kindle, and since Amazon lets you share your Kindle library with those in your Amazon Prime household, I also have all of my husband books to choose from as well.

Let’s be honest, I’ve purchased so may books over the last few months that I’m just going to go with what I have!

For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten

Red is a second born daughter and she is going to be sacrificed to the wolf in the woods. I pre-ordered this back in June and I am really looking forward to reading this one, especially at 403 pages.

The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn by Tyler Whitesides

When Ardor Benn is hired by a priest to steal from the most powerful king the realm has ever seen, he must put together a group of thieves to achieve his goals. This is a long one, clocking in at a little over 750 pages. It should keep me busy.

The Mask of Mirrors by M.A. Carrick

The story of thieves and con artists and royal court life. This is another whopper, coming in at 615 pages.

Bow-Legged Buccaneers From Outer Space by David Owain Hughes

Space pirates. That was all I needed to know when my friend told me about this book. It’s short, so I feel it help with one of the shorter trips we are taking, at 147 pages.

The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo

A royal sent into a political marriage. A young girl sold into servitude. This sounds great! And at 124 pages should be a quick read!

Now, do I expect to read every single one of these books while I am on this trip? Nope, but these are the ones I am hoping to at least touch. Especially given that there are kids involved in this road trip. But a girl can hope! Wish me luck!

A Small TBR

I know I said I wasn’t going to do it anymore, but I’m going to do it. There are a few books I want to read to celebrate Pride month. Maybe you’ll find one that you want to read too!

Also, I’m not gonna run myself ragged trying to read all of these. If I don’t finish this list, I will not be ashamed!

How Y’all Doing? by Leslie Jordan

When actor Leslie Jordan learned he had “gone viral,” he had no idea what that meant or how much his life was about to change. On Instagram, his uproarious videos have entertained millions and have made him a global celebrity. Now, he brings his bon vivance to the page with this collection of intimate and sassy essays.

Bursting with color and life, dripping with his puckish Southern charm, How Y’all Doing? is Leslie doing what Leslie does best: telling stories that make us laugh and lift our spirits even in the darkest days. Whether he’s writing about his brush with a group of ruffians in a West Hollywood Starbucks, or an unexpected phone call from legendary Hollywood start Debbie Reynolds, Leslie infuses each story with his fresh and saucy humor and pure heart.

Oh my word! I restarted my audible subscription for this book. I’m a sucker for memoirs where the author narrates it. Who doesn’t love Leslie Jordan at this point?

The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood

Csorwe does—she will climb the mountain, enter the Shrine of the Unspoken, and gain the most honored title: sacrifice.

But on the day of her foretold death, a powerful mage offers her a new fate. Leave with him, and live. Turn away from her destiny and her god to become a thief, a spy, an assassin—the wizard’s loyal sword. Topple an empire, and help him reclaim his seat of power.

But Csorwe will soon learn—gods remember, and if you live long enough, all debts come due.

I bought this last year and just haven’t gotten to it yet. I’m hoping to get to it this month!

Lost In the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas

It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into the light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road…

Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, asks for Wendy’s help to rescue the missing kids. But, in order to find them, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.

I pre-ordered this one cause I like Cemetery Boys so much. Here’s hoping I like it just as much. It would be nice to have another author whose works I collect.

Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

The Emperor needs necromancers.

The Ninth Necromancer needs a swordswoman.

Gideon has a sword, some dirty magazines, and no more time for undead nonsense.

Tamsyn Muir’s Gideon the Ninth unveils a solar system of swordplay, cut-throat politics, and lesbian necromancers. Her characters leap off the page, as skillfully animated as arcane revenants. The result is a heart-pounding epic science fantasy.

Brought up by unfriendly, ossifying nuns, ancient retainers, and countless skeletons, Gideon is ready to abandon a life of servitude and an afterlife as a reanimated corpse. She packs up her sword, her shoes, and her dirty magazines, and prepares to launch her daring escape. But her childhood nemesis won’t set her free without a service.

Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House and bone witch extraordinaire, has been summoned into action. The Emperor has invited the heirs to each of his loyal Houses to a deadly trial of wits and skill. If Harrowhark succeeds she will be become an immortal, all-powerful servant of the Resurrection, but no necromancer can ascend without their cavalier. Without Gideon’s sword, Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die.

Of course, some things are better left dead.

Another book I’ve had since last year and just never got around to reading. Here’s hoping!

Well, there you have it. The 4 books I’m wanting to read this month. Not a long list, but it works for me. Send good vibes my way that I can get to all of them!

Skipping the TBR?

Yes, I am skipping the TBR this month.

I know!

What’s a book blogger to do without a TBR?

Mood read, that’s what.

See, I’ve been trying this TBR thing and it hasn’t really worked out for me. I mean, the first month I did it, I did well. But every month after, total failure.

Which is fine. We learn from failure. And what I learned is that maybe I shouldn’t do TBR’s.

See TBR’s feel too much like an assignment. Like something I have to do. And since I am a mood reader, well, that just kills wanting to read.

That’s not good.

I want to read all the books I have, and since I keep buying new ones, well, I need to mood read them. So lets see how this no TBR thing goes.

I hope it goes well for me.

What To Read-December 2020 TBR

Well, since I failed lasts month TBR by one book, lets see what I can do with this month’s TBR.

Maybe make it shorter?

Maybe read more books?

Maybe both?

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson

Mistborn tells basically asks the question: What happens if the hero fails? 1000 years have passed since that happened and a new rebellion is rising, but will they succeed? This is one of the Hubs’ favorite books and he is excited for me to read it.

The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guin

Jeff writes a story about Christmas, and he gets some of it wrong. To the point where a very important person from up north wants to chat with him. One of my book clubs is reading this book this month, and it sounds adorable!

Dune by Frank Herbert

This classic sci-fi story has been around for a long time. The story of Paul Atreides, the planet Arakkis, and the Spice. Because, as you know, “he who controls the spice controls the universe”. This is another book club pick. But I’m only supposed to read half of it for the month, which suits me just fine, since I didn’t really like it the first time I read it.

How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse by K. Eason

Rory was supposed to inherit the throne, but her father was assassinated and her mother gave birth to a son. Now Rory is betrothed to a prince and uncovers a plot to overthrow him. This book sounds like a fun space opera read.

And I think those are all the books I’m going to put on my TBR this month. Lets see how I do. Hopefully I’ll do better this month than I did in November!
