#5OnMyTBR – Title Starts With S

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!

Hello, reader!

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day to those in the United States. Having served in the military, I always make sure to set aside some time today to think about those who lost their lives serving. It’s also the unofficial beginning of summer, which makes me happy! The warm weather is here to stay and it’s about time.

Ya know what else it’s time for? Another 5 On My TBR post! The theme for this week is to pick a previous theme you missed and I decided to go with an easy one: book titles that start with ‘S’. It was a bit too easy cause it took me awhile to pare this list down to just five. Just know, this is a drop in the bucket of all the books I want to read that have titles that start with the letter ‘S’, haha.

That being said, let me show you what did make the cut!

#1. Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim

I’ve only read one book by Elizabeth Lim, but I enjoyed her writing so much I’m eager to read more. I’ve heard great things about this fantasy that weaves in East Asian folklore. The premise of a princess who does not speak searching for her brothers that have been magically turned into cranes is definitely intriguing! I’m hoping to pick this one up soon because, the more I hear about it, the more I want to read it.

#2. The Stardust Thief by Chelsea Abdullah

This is another book I’ve heard nothing but great things about, though it is a much more recent release. It has magic and secrets and thieves and jinn. In short, it sounds absolutely incredible! It has been on my radar for a minute and, now that’s it is out in the world, I’m eager to pick it up! The fact that’s it is currently sitting at a 4.29 Goodreads rating makes me want to give it a read even more.

#5OnMyTBR – Duologies I Need To Finish

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!

Hello, reader!

Happy Monday to you all! Today is a very special 5 On My TBR. Why? Because it’s the 2 year anniversary of this wonderful, bookish meme! The theme this week is a freebie, so, to celebrate a whole 2 years of 5 On My TBR, I figured I would talk about some duologies that I need to finish. Not to say that there are only five still on my TBR buuuuut we’ll not talk about that 😂

Alright, let’s get to the list!

#1. A Psalm of Storms and Silence by Roseanne A. Brown

This is one of the newer duologies on my TBR and one I’m very eager to continue. A Song of Wraiths and Ruin was one of my favorite reads last year! It has a tense plot that is built around a gorgeous world and fantastic characters. Karina and Malik are fascinating to watch as they navigate all the dangers throughout this story. And I need to know whether or not they’re gonna be okay! Also, the covers are just incredible 😍

#2. Unravel the Dusk by Elizabeth Lim

Here’s another sequel that I’m eager to read and just keep putting off, heh. I had such a great time reading Spin the Dawn! It’s an engaging read that pulls you into the fantasy world that Elizabeth Lim has created. I loved the quest, the contest, and all the intriguing aspects of the story. So I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to pick this one up! I feel like Unravel the Dusk is going to be just as good as the first one, so I really need to prioritize picking it up.

Top 5 Tuesday: Series I Need To Complete

Top 5 Tuesday is a fun, weekly meme that asks you to pick 5 books that fit that week’s theme. It was created by Bionic Bookworm and is currently being hosted by Meeghan Reads. You should check out their wonderful blog for more details and the list of prompts!

Hello, reader!

It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday! And this one is calling me out. Why? Because I’ll be talking about the top five series I haven’t finished and I am spoiled for choice 😅 I’ve found that I am excellent at starting series and… not so great at actually completing them. I partly blame this on having to wait for new installments in ongoing series. Mostly, though, it’s because I get distracted very easily!

But enough excuses. Here are my top five series that I haven’t finished but really want to complete.

#1. The Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson

Before we begin, I know that there is a complete separate trilogy that is technically part of the Mistborn series. I am choosing to ignore it for now! Mostly because I finished the second book in this series years ago and still haven’t picked up the last one. I don’t know why, either! I love Vin and the world of Mistborn! And every time I pick up a Brandon Sanderson book, I get completely sucked in. I’m gonna finish it this year, I swear, and I just know I’m gonna love it.

#2. The Great Library series by Rachel Caine

This entry is actually quite embarrassing because I absolutely adore this series and recommend it all the time. Yet I haven’t even finished it! For this series, I think I’m just not ready for it to be over. I love the characters in this series, I love the world, and I’m not ready to say goodbye! Still, finishing this series is one of my goals for 2022, so it’s getting done this year. I know I’m going to love it ❤
