I had a VERY ambitious TBR last month and I think I didn’t do all that bad to be honest! Despite work, despite me wanting to catch up on TV shows, despite everything that has happened – I read 7 books! That’s quite neat, right? Let’s check out what I originally planned and what I actually read.
- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard (3.5 stars)
- A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab (4 stars)
- Firewalker by Josephine Angelini (4 stars)
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
Okay, that book has been sitting on my shelf and taunting me for almost the entire month, but I really do want to read it with Cristina and Cátia and somehow the mail service messed up because Cátia still doesn’t have her copy … It’s torture!
- Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell (4 stars)
Splintered, Unhinged and Ensnared by A.G. Howard
For this one there simply wasn’t time. That happens! Also, I may or may not buddy read the first book in the series with Marie. That would be so much fun! Our buddy reads are always hilarious with us just freaking out over Twitter.
The Shannara Chronicles: The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks
Honestly, I am just not over what happened on the show and I am really scared of what’s in the book now. I am not sure I can relive a certain thing twice within a short time span.
Other books that weren’t on the list:
- Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli (4.5 stars)
- The Siren by Kiera Cass (4.2 stars)
- Ghetto by M.L. Sparrow (4 stars)

In a very rare event, I got to meet Nicholas Sparks for the briefest of moments. I have read more than 10 books written by him and I know that he is famous worldwide, so I didn’t really expect to encounter him in Vienna one day, but it happened. It was brief and there was no chance of asking or saying anything to him, but it was still such a cool experience. Read my post about it here!
I got my first book swag!!! It was so cool to actually get something relevant in the mail and I just took the letter with me to work.

It was a really neat letter by Katie McGarry, a bookmark and ribbons with quotes from the Thunder Road books. I loved it! And speaking of that particular series, you can now win a copy of the first book – Nowhere But Here!
