Where Has the Year Gone? || Winter TBR And My Chances of Getting into Broadway
"Hello! It is the news of the year ending once again (like a long, long time ago)!"
"Did you hear? *flipping the calendar pages* 2017 is ending!"
Where has the year gone? With me starting college and beginning my adventures through book blogging this year, I guess there is a reason for the year to move on before I am even ready. Stupid time! Well, time is not stupid; it is just that time does not know time management.
Also, even though this may be a little irrelevant from the subject of this post, I think I may have a shot at Broadway just telling from the opening lines of this post. Disagree with me if you want; however, doesn't everyone at least have a try to getting what one wants? I think so, just as long as one tries hard enough.
Okay, as that little discussion is over, I might as well tell everyone what I want to read this winter, which is really from mid-December to early January in Texas.
1. Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
Last summer, I watched Game of Thrones until my eyes bled and I was crying out "Hodor." A lot of readers and/or regular, normal humans may ask why I have not started something, especially a book, which I think I may like a lot. Fellow readers and normal human beings, I cry to each and every one of you to read my pitiful sorrows and the such of why I have not started this book.
#1: School: it's time consuming!
#2: It is just so...BIG! It intimidates me!
#3. I am intimidated by the beautiful dragons. This is a big problem as I love dragons and I want them to be pictured as majestic creatures. I need this aspect of this book to be perfect!
2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
As I begin by mentioning the news that 2017 is coming to an end(😱), many books were published this year, and one of these books just happens to be Laini Taylor's Strange the Dreamer. This book has gotten so much praise, just like all her other previous books; however, I have not had the time to fully immerse myself into a high fantasy world just yet. Like with the A Song of Ice and Fire series, I heard that I should give myself plenty of time away from the rest of society to just read. I already do that anyway, but with school taking up the majority of my time, it is no surprise that I have not started Game of Thrones nor Strange the Dreamer. That is why I have made it my duty(😋) to finish this before the end of 2017 so I can stay on top of the trends.
3. Altered by Jennifer Rush
I was kindly sent this book by the people at theNOVL, or the Little, Brown, and Company publishing company, in the NOVLbox, which I did a review of and loved opening; however, I have not had the chance to read it yet. Christmas break seems like a good time to do so as it is a fast read and I do not want to showcase a half-naked man to my classmates while I am at school.
UPDATE: Already read it, and I do not regret it.
4. Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings
I am SO lucky to have gotten an e-arc of this book from Edelweiss. When I first opened my email on a regular Monday, I suspected nothing out of the ordinary would occur. Boy, I was so wrong as an email popped up saying that my request to Harlequin had been fulfilled. I jumped up and down, ran through my house, and told everyone in my house the amazing news. This will be the first book I am sure to read after I finish The Librarian of Auschwitz. AHH, I cannot wait!
5. The Girl Without Magic by Megan O'Russell
Even though I am intrigued by the story of a girl going through a battle in a fantasy world with sirens, I do have to read and review this as I am hosting a blog tour stop. I cannot wait to read it when it comes in my mail in a week or two.
These are the books I know I will read in the winter months. As there will be more additions to this list, this is just the beginning of the large amount of books I want to read around this time.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy!
