First of all: HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Secondly: a new year means new goals. So, tomorrow I will have a post up on my New Year’s resolutions, where I tell you all about my reading goals for 2018. But since today is January 1st, this post is just a regular monthly TBR that consists of eight books!
All of You by Lindsay Detwiler
There’s no such thing as impossible when it comes to saving the one who holds your heart.
A sexy doctor who’s restricted by expectations.
A quirky poet who’s defined by her dark past.
All it takes is Alex Evans saving Marley Jade one fateful night for their futures to be realigned. And when a passion sparks between them, they must decide if they can piece each other back together and make love work.
I got a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review! Its release date is January 23rd, so that’s also when my review will be up! I’m looking forward to reading some romance again *swoons*
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it’s the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run – and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry’s tea leaves… But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss…
I actually wanted to go back to Hogwarts in December, but somehow December was suddenly over without me reading the third Harry Potter book … CAN’T WAIT TO GO BACK THOUGH!
MASHED by Grivante and others
It’s like Scary movie meets 50 shades on The Food Network!
MASHED is an anthology of 17 stories culled from over 200 submissions and includes authors from around the world.
Each story is a unique blend of horror, humor, food and sex, resulting in tales that will leave you both scared and slightly turned on, while laughing out loud and contemplating whether or not you should have your next meal.
I got an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review and this is one I’m really (really) curious about. Culinary erotic horror? I just can’t imagine anything when I think about this book, so I’m looking forward to reading it!
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
‘Stronger than a man, simpler than a child, her nature stood alone.’ So Emily Brontë appeared in the eyes of her sister, Charlotte. Her one novel, Wuthering Heights, published a year before her death in 1848 at the age of thirty, similarly stands alone as perhaps the most passionately original work in the English language. This dark, unforgettable story of Catherine Earnshaw and the swarthy Heathcliff ‘is moorish, and wild, and knotty as a root of heath’, and Emily Brontë records the progress of their love with such truth, imagination, and emotional intensity that a plain tale of the Yorkshire moors acquires the depth and simplicity of ancient tragedy.
I have to admit that I’m not necessarily looking forward to reading this classic. It’s been on my shelf for years now and it’s one of my New Year’s resolutions to really kick the ass of my TBR the coming year and that definitely includes this book. Can’t wait to cross it off of my list!
Three Weeks Dead by Rebecca Bradley
How far would you go if someone took your wife?
Especially, if you buried her a week ago.
When Jason Wells is faced with this scenario, he is confronted with the prospect of committing a crime that will have far-reaching consequences.
Can young DC Sally Poynter get through to him before he crosses that line, or does a desperate husband prove to be the case she won’t ever forget?
This is a book I added because it’s only 81 pages long and it sounds absolutely intriguing!
Wicked Me by Lindsey R. Loucks
Power, corruption, revenge… Falling in love sure is hard.
Nothing will come between book-lover Paige Sullivan and her dream library internship. That includes her new roommate, the panty annihilator known as Sam Cleary. But a man from Paige’s past reappears with a secret agenda and puts everything at risk, including her growing feelings for Sam.
Blackmailed to protect his family, Sam Cleary is in way over his head. But when his childhood crush becomes his new roommate, old feelings are rekindled, even as his family’s secrets begin to unravel.
This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review! As I mentioned earlier, I have really neglected the romance genre lately and I can’t wait to be swooned away again!!
The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 by Sue Townsend
Adrian Mole’s first love, Pandora, has left him; a neighbor, Mr. Lucas, appears to be seducing his mother (and what does that mean for his father?); the BBC refuses to publish his poetry; and his dog swallowed the tree off the Christmas cake. “Why” indeed.
The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole by Sue Townsend
At sixteen, Adrian Mole’s life continues to be nothing but a set of tragic circumstances: His tempestuous relationship with an alluring schoolmate tortures him, while his intellectualism continues to be ignored by the British press. Despite it all he remains as agonizingly funny as ever in this, the second of his diaries.
These are books 1 and 2 in the series on Adrian Mole. I have read some in the past, but to be honest: I don’t remember much of it, except for that I thought it was hilarious! I’ll be reading them in Dutch though, so I hope that won’t take anything away of the British humor!
