January 2016 TBR


I have to say it is strange to write 2016 and I almost did write 2015 right there. But welcome to a New Year! I hope everyone’s transition went well! I have a bit of a more ambitious TBR this month, but with the side note that I am not going to be sad/mad/whatever if I don’t actually read all of it. Here’s my plan:

  • Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate
    This was on my December TBR as well and I am currently at 28% and am hoping to finish it soon!
  • Roger et ses Humains by Paka/Cyprien Iov
    A French Comic Book? What? Yes, I read that and I (luckily) even understood it. Actually, I finished it at 1 AM in the new year and am planning on reviewing it very soon. I hope this will go over well!
  • Once Upon a Time – Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver
    Although the show Once Upon a Time definitely has it’s ups and downs, I simply couldn’t resist this book. I got it for Christmas and was so happy, because it is simply gorgeous! I cannot wait to find out about Red’s/Ruby’s backstory!
  • S. by J.J. Abrams/Doug Dorst
    I’ve seen this book around in the bookstore a couple of times, but I had no clue what it was about, therefore I was thoroughly surprised when I got it as a present from one of the best people on the planet, my cousin, Julia. It’s this very strange adventure book with like 3 different stories and postcards and newspaper cutouts in it. It’s going to be so exciting, even though I don’t think that it’s a book that you read in a linear fashion.
  • Red Rising by Pierce Brown
    I heard so many good things about it and lastly the videos on Tashapolis channel on YouTube really convinced me to give it a go. I am definitely looking forward to getting into this series!
  • Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld/Margo Lanagan/Deborah Biancotti
    People with lousy superpowers? Count me in!
  • Did I Mention I Need You? by Estelle Maskame
    Okay, I am not sure this is really happening this month, but maybe I am going to do a buddy read with Cristina for this one. We were lucky and got copies for it for spreading some love for the first book of the series, Did I Mention I Love You?, which we both liked. Are we still on for that? Want to post-pone it?

  1. 7 ways we lie sounds great! And I read ‘Uglies’ by Scott Westerfield. Can’t say it was my favourite book but maybe Zeroes is better! Happy new year! Xx

  2. great TBR, i’m curious about Red Rising too, it helps that the author is one gorgeous human being. Oh yeah! Did I mention I need you? YES! I’ll put it in my tbr too and we’ll see if we can get to it this month or if we have to leave it do February 😉 (it’s not like we don’t talk everyday :P)

  3. AH YOU ARE READING A FRENCH COMIC BOOK?! Let’s speak French then!! :p Sorry for the all caps there, haha. And about writing 2015, well, I’m still stuck somewhere in 2011 sometimes when writing dates, so…no worries, haha :p
    I’m planning on reading Seven Ways We Lie very soon, I hope you’re liking it so far! 😀

    • I think I should probably point out that while I do understand French in writing and when someone speaks a at a decent speed, I totally suck at talking and writing myself. I haven’t needed it for years now and I am totally rusty :/
      I think Seven Ways We Lie is quite funny so far. A fast and easy read, but nothing that really blows you away either.

  4. I have heard so many things about S. and I am really intimidated by that book. It just seems like it would take ages to read. It’s also the reason that I haven’t bought it for myself yet. I look forward to hearing what you think about that book! 😀

  5. I’m going to try to read S. this year, too! I got a copy on Book Outlet a while ago, but haven’t picked it up yet. And I’m so excited you decided to read Red Rising – it’s one of my favorites!

  6. Red Rising has been on my TBR for the longest time but I’l still not quite sure about it. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! I learn French and my teacher is always telling me to read French books or watch French movies but I’m not sure I would be able to keep up! Enjoy these books 🙂

    • I’m really excited for Red Rising 🙂 I’ll make sure to review it when I’m done.
      I think comic books are the best when you are not sure about your language skills! They don’t have that much dialogue or description and of course the pictures help hahaha


  7. I’m busy reading Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain and I’ve also got The Girl on the Train on my list. Also hoping to finish Wild Swans and maybe even revisit Middlemarch.


    • I have to be honest and say that I know none of those books, except for The Girl on the Train. It was very popular in the bookshop I worked at! Everyone said it kept them on the edge of their seat most of the time 🙂
