⛱️ June TBR β›±οΈ

I could not bring myself to set up a tbr this month. I mean, I kind of have one? I have 21 books I want to read. I mean, I know I’ve been reading 12 a month, so that’s a little over half, but dang. I just can’t decide! Too many good things!

First let’s take a look at this month’s Words & Whimsy Reading Challenge!

I am so excited to be on the Autumn Court! We had a twist this month – it’s actually Seelie vs Unseelie! Unseelie FTW! Now, let’s get into these books I can’t wait to read.

There you have it. My super huge tbr. What do you think? Do we share any of the same books? What is your first book for June? Let me know in the comments below!
I’m starting with Seven Endless Forests!

🏈 Jane’s Team ARC Review πŸˆ

🏈 Title : Jane’s Team
🏈 Author : Janie Marie
🏈 Publisher : Kindle
🏈 Publish Date : April 2, 2020
🏈 Genre : YA, Romance, Sports
🏈 Book Form : E-ARC
🏈 Pages : 375 pages
🏈 Dates Read : Apr 25 – Apr 28
🏈 Rating : 🏈.5

🏈 Thank you to Netgalley for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own. 🏈

When you’re in love with your best friend, life is complicated. When he’s also your stepbrother, it’s a nightmare.

Jane’s apparently a magnet for chaos. Because now she’s agreed to tutor her stepbrother’s enemy, and that sexy bad boy might have a thing for her. She might also love that a tingle surrounds her soul whenever he’s close. Throw his two brothers into the mix, dangerous rivals looking to destroy every one of them, and parents controlling her love life. It’s safe to say she’s wandered into the apocalypse.

At least being torn between four hot guys isn’t the end of the world. Just kidding. It totally is. But they’ll all realize something.

Jane’s the ruler of her life. No one else. Long live the queen . . . and her kings.

– Goodreads

Okay, look. I can get down with some freaky, forbidden romances. Don’t bother me one little bit. However, there were some glowering issues with this book. The more I thought about it, the more mad I got. That’s why you see the rating changed from 3 stars on my April wrap up to 1.5 stars now.

This story follows Jane who has been in love with her step-brother, David, since before they were step siblings. She also has a crush on the jerk next door, Ryder. Jane is forced to tutor Ryder, star of the football team, and learns maybe he isn’t such a jerk after all. Then somehow his two brothers Luc and Tercero are factored in and she just.can’t.choose. Four super hot guys fawning over this girl who’s never even been kissed.

It starts with Ryder and David, and they decide to share and let her explore and make up her mind. Then comes the other two brothers, and they decide to be one big happy family.

All that? Good. Doesn’t bother me one bit. You know what DOES bother me? THE MEN IN THIS BOOK!

I felt every man was so misogynist and just, ugh. They didn’t treat Jane with respect at all. They all try to boss her around. It was the things that were said to her that really pissed me off. Jane, of course, was very insecure in their arrangement. She wanted all the guys, yes, but she was scared of how they would be perceived. Constantly wondered why she couldn’t just choose one. She would say things like, “I’m so dumb” or “I’m such a how” and the boys would smirk their sexy smirk, say “I know.” or “A little” and start kissing her. WHAT?! I thought about this for days after and just kept getting more and more angry. Who says that to someone they ‘love’?! It didn’t seem to be in a joking manner, either. They just.. almost seemed like they were saying it to shut her up? I don’t know. I’m getting angry thinking about it again.

The romance scenes weren’t bad. They were spicy and well done. Like I said, that wasn’t the issue.

This is also an alternate universe for the author’s Gods and Monsters series. You don’t have to read that to understand this book. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be picking it up.

Have you read Jane’s Team or Gods and Monsters? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time…

🌦️ April Wrap Up πŸŒ¦οΈ

Well, now that I’ve adjusted to the new normal, I’ll be going back to work full time next week! I’m sure this will put a damper on my reading, and I have a HUGE TBR for May. I just could not decide!

April has been my best reading month with 12 books. I’m hoping to keep up and may up the count next month! I’m shooting for 10 a month, and anything over is great!

My favorite book this month was probably Girls with Razor Hearts by Suzanne Young. Crave by Tracy Wolff was a very close second! My least favorite book was Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend by Alan Cumyn. I mean, I knew it was bad going into it, but I had to see what all of the fuss was about. Believe me. I saw.

I had a much better reading month in April. My ratings were a lot higher than March, which I was happy about. I read a lot of great books this month!

  1. Girls with Razor Hearts by Suzanne Young 🌦️🌦️🌦️🌦️🌦️

🌦️ Stats 🌦️

  • Goodreads Goal: 41/120. I am two books AHEAD OF SCHEDULE! WHAT?! This is the first time all year I’ve been ahead of schedule and I am so excited!
  • I read 4427 pages, which is the most all year! I feel really great about this month. I am so proud of myself! My average rating was 3.71, which is also better than last month!
  • For genres, I read three contemporary and fantasy, two romance, one sci fi, thriller, and historical fiction and graphic novel.
  • This was a YA heavy month, with 10 YA books, one new adult and adult.
  • I read 9 ARCs this month – two more than last month! My tbr for May is very ARC heavy, so I’m hoping to keep making a dent in this pile I have! I am so very grateful and honored to have such an ARC heavy TBR pile!

🌦️ Yearly Goals Check In 🌦️

  • Goal of 10 books a month : I exceeded this goal with 12! It feels so good! Hoping to exceed it next month too.
  • TBR Posts : Still doing a post every Sunday, still only read 4 from it, haha. I am doing good slimming it down though! Under 1800!
  • Words & Whimsy : I had the pleasure of talking to Tracy Wolff this month! It was a blast! She is so sweet and down to earth. We have 7 chats (I think?) scheduled for May. I can’t wait to see who I’ll get to talk to! We have some big names this month – Christopher Paolini and then a joint chat with Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman! You don’t want to miss it! Join us here!
  • Words & Whimsy Reading Challenge : Our first month was a hit! May’s theme is Broken Worlds – aka space! We have open, interpretive criteria and fun group chats! Join here!
  • Mithah Reads : This month was hard blog wise. I’ve been working part time basically, but my three year old is NOT wanting to let me blog! And honestly, he wears me out so I’m going to bed a lot earlier! Hopefully once I’m back working full time in May I can get back into my blogging routine! I’ve got three blog tours next month and reviews from April to catch up on!
  • I’m still keeping up with my three blogging spreadsheets which I am very excited about. I love seeing all the data they track!

Down the TBR Part 20

Ah! Part 20 of my down the TBR! I’ve reviewed way more than 200 books, but this is really helping me get a true TBR. Today we will go through 20 more books that I added on July 15, 2015. I feel like this is gonna be a good one. Plus, I will finally get below 1800 books! Woooo!

βœ” What I Kept βœ”

Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult
This has everything I usually hate! Chick lit, Amish, adult fiction. But for some reason this just sounds so good! I have to give it a try.

Mercy by Jodi Picoult
Mercy killings are a hot topic, one I love to discuss. I can’t turn a book away with that topic!

About Face by Fern Michaels
Super cute cover. Doctor MC. Memory loss and a mystery. I’m all about it.

The Third Circle by Amanda Quick
I’m pretty sure I added the other books in this series.

Charming Lily by Fern Michaels
I went back and forth, and at the last minute decided to give this one a chance. It’s set in Mississippi and seems like it might have a good mystery.

✘ What I Deleted ✘

Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult
This one just didn’t grab my attention the way Plain Truth did. It doesn’t seem like something I’d enjoy.

Songs of the Humpback Whale by Jodi Picoult
This one seems way too romance-y, chick-lit for me.

Snow Angels by Fern Michaels
This is a book of four novellas. The reviews weren’t great and it didn’t really grab my attention, so I’ll pass.

Weekend Warriors by Fern Michaels
#1 in the Sisterhood series. Something about these books just makes me cringe and makes me feel so uneasy.

Lethal Justice by Fern Michaels
Again, #6 in the Sisterhood series

Fast Track by Fern Michaels
#10 in the Sisterhood series, and I remember deleting others in this series.

Razor Sharp by Fern Michaels
#14 in the Sisterhood Series.

Texas Fury by Fern Michaels
#3 in Texas series. The synopsis did not make me want to go and read the first two.

What You Wish For by Fern Michaels
I don’t know why I have so many by Fern, but most of her works just do not entice me.

The Scoop by Fern Michaels
Another very chick lit book. This just screams something that my mom would read. Or my Meme.

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Removing this ONLY because I have read it before. It was before the movie came out. I remember seeing the movie and being SO pissed at the ending. This is a great book, though.

Pretty Woman by Fern Michaels
The synopsis just didn’t call to me. Very chick lit.

Kentucky Heat by Fern Michaels
#2 in the Kentucky series, and I’m pretty sure I deleted the first one.

Fool Me Once by Fern Michaels
Another very chick lit read.

Serendipity by Fern Michaels
I just couldn’t even get into reading the synopsis.

This was a pretty good turnout! I deleted 15 books, bringing my TBR to 1785! I have deleted so many since starting this. I still have a long way to go, but it is still so satisfying. I only have 35 books left from July 15, 2015, so I’ll probably cover all those in the next post! I’m ready to move on from this day. I think it’s taken the whole month!

What do you think of my choices? Were there any that you would have kept or deleted? Let me know in the comments below!

Down the TBR Part 19!

Sheeeeeesh have I been in a funk this week! Zero motivation to do anything blog related. However, I have finished 5 books this week! You’ve seen reviews for We Didn’t Ask For This, Girls with Razor Hearts, and Ghosted in LA. This week be on the look out for reviews for Crave and Open Fire!

This will probably be a short one. Like I said, just in a blah mood. I also just started Red Hood by Elana K Arnold and Deny Me by Karen Cole and I can’t wait to dive further into them! I’m reading Red Hood for a book discussion over at Words & Whimsy!

We are starting the TBR at 1811. Let’s see where we end!

βœ” What I Kept βœ”

Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah
I know I am going to sob while reading this, but it sounds so good and heartbreaking. Plus, I love memoirs.

✘ What I Deleted ✘

The Pact by Jodi Picoult
I just can’t with kids dying – even if they are teenagers.

The Prodigal by Beverly Lewis
Number 4 in an Amish series…

Picture Perfect by Fern Michaels
This was listed as romantic suspense, so I thought I’d be here for it. However, the reviews were awful so I think I’ll pass.

Irresistible by Susan Mallery
Number 2 in a series and also serious chick lit.

Vendetta by Fern Michaels
Number 2 in a series about a group of women who get revenge on those who have wronged them. I mean, normally I’d be up for trying, but something about it is just off-putting to me.

Dream of Me by Fern Michaels
A book of two contemporary adult romances. Just not my style.

Kentucky Sunrise by Fern Michaels
Book 3 in a series. I’m just not interested in reading about a romance based around the Kentucky Derby.

The Sacrifice by Beverly Lewis
Book 3 in another Amish series.

Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
I know I’ve read this. And I’m not deleting it because it’s Twilight. I’m removing it because I have fond memories of this series and want them to stay that way. I’m afraid of a reread.

Wow, this one ended up being pretty good! I deleted 9/10, bringing my TBR to 1802! So close!

What do you think of my selections? Did I make a mistake? Let me know in the comments below!

🍷 Reading Habits Book Tag πŸ·

Hey everyone! I hope you are all staying safe, healthy, and social distancing! We are slowly settling into our new normal and getting a routine down! I’m reading a lot more than last month. I even finished two books in a day! I hope that I will be able to bring you guys more reviews and thoughts about upcoming books!

But for today, I saw this tag over at Lala’s Book Reviews and it looked fun so I decided to try it! The creator of this tag is The Book Jazz!

🍷 Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I usually read in bed or in the chair in the living room! But I basically read where ever and when ever my kid will let me!

🍷 Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I read mostly e-books, but I would use anything as a bookmark.

🍷 Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?

I hate not ending on a chapter. I will do whatever I can to end at either a break in the chapter or the end of a chapter. However, I do read while on hold at work, so then I have to end whenever who I’m holding for comes to the phone.

🍷 Do you eat or drink while reading?

I will usually drink coffee or wine if it’s night time, but nothing specific.

🍷 Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

No. My husband will have the tv on while I’m reading and I try to tune it out, but I like it silent.

🍷 One book at a time or several at once?

Depends. It is usually one, unless I’m listening to an audiobook at work. I’m normally listening to true crime podcasts though.

🍷 Reading at home or everywhere?

Everywhere. As I said, I read while I’m on hold at work, I read while I’m eating, I read on the way home. I will read any second I can.

🍷 Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently. I loathe reading out loud. I was the kid in school who counted ahead to see what paragraph I’d have to read and recite it.

🍷 Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

I have been known to read ahead because I couldn’t wait to see what happened, but it’s not something I normally do.

🍷 Breaking the spine or keeping it new?

I try to keep it new. But really my physical books are just for show.

🍷 Do you write in your books?

Nope. But I love highlighting on my kindle!

🍷 Readabits Questions 🍷

🍷 When do you find yourself reading?

Mostly when putting my kid to bed and at night. Lately with my reduced hours I’m getting a good amount of reading in in the morning!

🍷 What is your favorite setting to read?

In my chair, blinds open, blanket and fuzzy socks, coffee or wine, and raining or storming outside.

🍷 What do you do first – read or watch?

I try to always read first!

🍷 What form do you prefer? Audiobook, e-book, or physical?

E-book because I can pull it up anywhere on my phone!

🍷 Do you have a unique habit when you read?

I always read reviews before I start a book. It never makes me not read it or sways my opinion. I’ll usually read 1-2 five star and one star reviews then 2-3 three star reviews.

🍷 Do book series have to match?

I like them to match! Like I said, physical books are just to look pretty.

What are your reading habits? Do any of yours match mine? If you decide to do this tag, link me so I can see your answers!

Until next time…

β˜” April TBR β˜”

I am so excited for April! As I mentioned in my last post, Words & Whimsy has started their own reading game! The theme is dinos! πŸ¦– I’m team T-Rex! πŸ¦– Here’s a peek at our very open, interpretative criteria, our mini game, and instagram challenge!

Since you can see our criteria, let’s dive right in!

Okay, I know, I know. 14 books is A LOT. Like, I’m only reading about 10 a month. HOWEVER. As of right now, I’m only working about 20 hours a week. That’s like, almost 30 hours less than normal. I am going to use that time to read! And play with the toddler. But also read! One of his favorite things to do is cuddle in the chair and read or watch Blippi. I plan to take full advantage of that in the mornings before work.

So a little breakdown on why I chose what I did. 10 of my books are arcs, so I just fit them where I could. I love Marie Lu, so I had to include her newest book. I’ve been wanting to read Belle Revolte since I heard about it and begged asked for an arc. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about Serpent and Dove. It was my most anticipated release the month it came out. I bought it on release day. So why haven’t I read it?! And finally, Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend. I have heard nothing but bad things about this one. But it’s like a train wreck I think? Or Tiger King? So bad you just can’t.look.away. So obviously, for dino month, I had to give it a try.

What do you think about my TBR? What’s on your list for April? Let me know in the comments below!

πŸ““ March Wrap Up πŸ““

What an odd month. Life as we know it has changed for now, and I think we’re all still trying to adjust to the new normal. I know it took a toll on my mental health, so it definitely affected my reading.

I don’t know if that affected my ratings or not, but I read a lot of meh books this month. They weren’t great but weren’t bad either. Here’s what I read:

  1. Lovestruck by Kate Watson ⭐⭐.5
  2. Don’t Check Out This Book! by Kate Klise ⭐⭐⭐
  3. Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak by Adi Alsaid ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  4. The Queen’s Assassin by Melissa de la Cruz ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  5. All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  6. We Are the Wildcats by Siobhan Vivian ⭐⭐.5
  7. Music From Another World by Robin Talley ⭐⭐⭐
  8. Hungry for Your love by Lori Perkins ⭐⭐⭐
  9. All the Pretty Things by Emily Arsenault ⭐⭐⭐

I didn’t really have a favorite this month. The middle of the month was best reading wise. I liked Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak, The Queen’s Assassin and All the Stars and Teeth. I liked that I read more fantasy this month. I may try to read more next month. It’s a great way to forget about the real world and get lost in a made up one.

My least favorite was We are the Wildcats. I was just so disappointed. It was my most anticipated this month and it was just a total let down.

βœ”οΈ Statsβœ”οΈ

  • Goodreads Goal: 30/120. I lowered my goal this month. I’m not really reading a ton of audios, and my eyeball reading just isn’t cutting it. I read 9 ebooks this month, which is more than last month, so at least I’m improving!
  • I read 3134 pages, which is a little less than last month. But I did read one more ebook than last month! I didn’t do any audios this month. My average rating was 3.22⭐.
  • I consumed 1 romance, mystery, and horror, 2 fantasies, and 4 contemporaries.
  • For audiences, I read 1 middle grade, 1 adult and 7 YA.
  • I read seven ARCs, which is one more than last month! I am trying super hard to get through those and get caught up.

βœ”οΈ Yearly Goals Check In βœ”οΈ

  • Monthly Goal of 15 a Month: I read 9 this month. I think I will lower this goal to 10. Ten books a month is definitely doable, and I think I would have hit that had this month not been so weird.
  • TBR Goal: I kept doing the posts every Sunday, along with a bonus post. As far as reading 20 this year – well, I am at 4. But there is still time! And I’m only 28 away from getting it below 1800! I’m excited to see where we are at the end of the year.
  • Words & Whimsy: I did a chat with Eric Smith this month which was so much fun! Don’t Read the Comments is still my favorite book of the year! We also did an overhaul, added more mods, and started our own reading game! I’m excited to see what Words & Whimsy Reading Challenge looks like in April! It’s going to be a blast!
  • Book Battle: Words & Whimsy and Book Battle have parted ways. As I mentioned, we have our own reading game now!
  • Mithah Reads: I didn’t post as much as I wanted to this month, but I am determined to get back on track with April! I am going to do a couple blog tours next month that I’m really excited about!
  • I am still keeping up with my three reading spreadsheets, so I’m pretty proud of myself! I do love finishing a book and adding it to the sheet. It’s so satisfying!

Romance ain’t dead…it’s undead. In this thrilling zombie anthology, horror fans will finally get their fill of zombie-on-zombie action, zombie-human love, and zombie smut. Because why should vampires have all the fun?

– Goodreads

What an interesting read. I chose to read this book this month because it had been on my TBR the longest. I kept it during one of my Down the TBR posts! I wanted to see how zombie romance was done. It was interesting because the stories were all very different, but had a lot of the same elements – like zombies eating animal brains instead of humans.

I loved reading the intro by Lori Perkins that showed how she decided to write zombie romance. Everyone said it couldn’t be done. Well guess what guys? She did it.

Some of the stories were cringey. One was so explicit in the violence I almost felt like I couldn’t read it. Some were cingey in the ‘oh it’s a zombie having sex with skin falling off’ way.

My favorite story was White Night, Black Horse by Mercy Loomis. It involved voodoo and sorcerers and gave me old school New Orleans vibes. It instantly stood out to me and was a story I kept thinking about.

Overall, this book wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad. Most stories weren’t awful, just meh. Middle of the road. White Night, Black Horse was the only stand out to me. I might have liked this book more had I read it a few years ago when I was super into The Walking Dead and zombie stuff. If you’re a fan of zombies, I would definitely give this a try. You’ll see them in a whole new light!

πŸ“š Down the TBR Part 17! πŸ“š

Hey guys! Another week gone by. Hope everyone is staying safe and social distancing!

These past two weeks have been so hard on me mental health wise. The stress of getting screened before work, work hours being cut, but still having to go because I’m essential. It’s all a lot. I haven’t read as much as I wanted, and I haven’t blogged as much as I wanted either. Hopefully soon I will get into the routine of a new normal (for now). It hasn’t all been doom and gloom, thought! I’ve gotten to spend a ton of time with my son and I am taking all I can get! He will be three in a few months and I just want to cherish every moment with him.

Anyway, to this week’s tbr! We are starting at 1843. I don’t think I added any this week! Probably because I haven’t been as active on here or twitter, haha! Also, my life has become consumed with Animal Crossing. Let me know if you want to be friends. I have peaches!

βœ” What I Kept βœ”

Sizzle and Burn by Jayne Ann Krentz

This sounds like a spicy romance with a little bit of crime solving mixed in. And witches.

Night by Elie Wiesel

I think I’ve read this before, but I’ve always been drawn to books about the Holocaust. I’m not sure why.

Granny Dan by Danielle Steel

I’ll give this one a chance. There’s some historical romance aspects that are intriguing to me.

✘ What I Deleted ✘

The Extraordinary Adventure of Alfred Kropp by Rick Yancey

I love this cover, but the synopsis just isn’t speaking to me.

The Untelling by Tayari Jones

Eek. Just a little too chick lit for me.

Beneath the Surface by Anne White

A mystery, which I’d usually love. But something about it seems off-putting, I just can’t put my finger on what it is.

The Wedding by Danielle Steel

My mom loves Danielle Steel. I just don’t think I’m that into her work, though.

Nothing Can Keep Us Together by Cecily von Ziegesar

I hate I didn’t read these in my teen years. Now I just don’t know that I would like it.

A Painted House by John Grisham

I’m not sure I’ve ever read anything by John Grisham. This story just seems so… sad.

Playing for Pizza by John Grisham

I went back and forth with this one. It’s about a football player, which I think I would like. But moving to Italy and playing football there… I just don’t know about it.

Impossible by Danielle Steel

Just another typical chick lit romance.

Sisters by Danielle Steel

Another very chick lit read.

Coming Out by Danielle Steel

I mean, same as above.

Nobody Else Has to Know by Ingrid Tomey

I think I own this book from years ago. But it just seems so sad. It may be my headspace right now, but I just can’t do sad books.

Big Girl by Danielle Steel

Another typical chick lit.

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

I mean… it’s Nicholas Sparks.

A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks

Again, Nicholas Sparks.

Family Blessings by Fern Michaels

Just another chick lit.

Amazing Grace by Danielle Steel

I almost kept this one. I may go back and add it. I can’t decide if it’s gonna be too chick lit or a good fiction novel.

Finders Keepers by Fern Michaels

This is about a two year old girl who was kidnapped. It’s just so sad. I can’t.

We are ending at 1826! So close to being under 1800! I only kept three, the most surprising to be the Danielle Steel novel.

Did I make any mistakes? Should I have kept any of these? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…
