Winter TBR 2019 | Old books and pretty covers


This past month I've been getting back into reading, a lot, not just on the bus to and from work. So I thought I would share my TBR list for the next few months. 
Like I said, I usually read during my commute because working full time and trying to keep my flat tidy, and life, doesn't leave time for much but since I've been on holiday I found myself picking up a book a lot more often.
Hopefully I can keep up the pace once I'm back to my routine but just in case, I won't keep my TBR very long. 

These are by no means new books but books that I've have on my shelf waiting to be read.

 "Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart."

I remember reading the first two books and LOVING THEM so I'm exited to start this one. 

"Makani Young thought she'd left her dark past behind her in Hawaii, settling in with her grandmother in landlocked Nebraska. She's found new friends and has even started to fall for mysterious outsider Ollie Larsson. But her past isn't far behind.

Then, one by one, the students of Osborne Hugh begin to die in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasingly grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and her feelings for Ollie intensify, Makani is forced to confront her own dark secrets."

Another Stephanie Perkins title. To be honest, this book was in my Spooky TBR for Halloween but never got around to it because TIME, but I'm looking forward to give it a go.

"It is Mommy’s 39th birthday. She is staring down the barrel at a future of people asking if she wants to come to their yoga class, and book clubs, where everyone is wearing statement scarves and they are all ‘tiddly’ after a glass of Pinot Grigio. But Mommy does not want to go quietly into that good night of women with sensible haircuts who ‘live for their children’, boasting about Boy Child and Girl Child’s achievements. Instead, she clutches a large glass of wine, muttering FML over and over, and then remembers the gem of an idea she’s had…"

I remember seeing this book everywhere and thinking it wasn't something I would enjoy and then I read some reviews... it seems really fun.

4. THE LAND OF ROAR by Jenny McLachlan
"When Arthur and Rose were little, they were heroes in the Land of Roar, an imaginary world that they found by climbing through the folding bed in their grandad’s attic. Roar was filled with things they loved – dragons, mermaids, ninja wizards and adventure – as well as things that scared them (including a very creepy scarecrow. . .)

Now the twins are eleven, Roar is just a memory. But when they help Grandad clean out the attic, Arthur is horrified as Grandad is pulled into the folding bed and vanishes. Is he playing a joke? Or is Roar . . . real?"

This is the last book I bought and honestly, I got it because I thought the art in the cover was beautiful. It has gold foiling! but then when I was paying the girl at the till said she read it and loved it. Looking forward to this one.

5. THE BROMANCE BOOK CLUB by Lyssa Kay Adams
"Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott's marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him. 

Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.
Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville's top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it'll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife."

This book got me at bromance. It might not be what I am expecting but after seeing everyone and their mother review this books, listen, the hype is real.

"It all begins with a fugitive billionaire and the promise of a cash reward. Turtles All the Way Down is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts."

Am I too late for the party? I got this book for Christmas two year ago and I've been telling myself I need to read it but life got in the way. It's always a good time for a John Green book.

And that is all. That's my not-so-ambitious-but-will-I-have-time-for-6-books? TBR. I want to think I'll stick to to it and maybe maybe even read a few more that didn't make the cut. I'll report back at the end of December, wish me luck! and let me know if you guys have read any of these books.

Qs of the day: Do you do seasonal TBRs? also any tips on how to get more reading done?
