March TBR

march-tbr

This month I’ll try to focus on books that are related to what I’m writing for my assessments as well as including some books I’ve been looking forward to read. Keep in mind half of the books in this list will most likely not be read this month as I will prioritise the ones I’ve mentioned before. I like to have options that can suit my reading mood at the time I’m picking a book.

  • Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  • The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • Children of the Corn by Stephen King
  • Seed by Lisa Heathfield
  • Unrequited Alice by Sarah Louise Smith
  • Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen
  • Royally Roma by Teri Wilson
  • King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard
  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber
  • By Your Side by Kasie West
  • Frostblood by Elly Blake
  • Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

Happy reading everyone!

February Wrap-Up

february-wrap-up

This is a very hard month to keep my blog updated and I’m afraid March will be even worse. My university ends on the first week of April and two of my assessments are due that same week. Although I’ve been reading as much as I can, I wish I had had more time to get through my TBR of the month. Anyway, here are the books I managed to read. Some of them have reviews but most don’t as I didn’t have time to typed them up yet.

  • Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
  • Heretics by Steven Nadler & Ben Nadler
  • The Castoffs Vol 1 by MK Reed & Brian Smith & Molly Ostertag
  • Wonder Woman Vol 1: The Lies (Rebirth) by Greg Rucka & Liam Sharp
  • The Backstagers Vol 1 by James Tynion IV
  • Ariadnis by Josh Martin
  • We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan & Brian Conaghan
  • The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

Favourite Book of the Month: Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

Fictional Jobs You’d Want to Have

March 1st – Fictional Jobs You’d Want to Have

Any fictional career you’d want to have? Remember, T5W is always open to movies, tv, and video games as well.

1. Pokémon Trainer (Pokémon)

Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of becoming a Pokémon Trainer. Pokémon Go brings out the trainer in me (I am still obsessed with it) and I’m so glad they created the game. I’m gonna catch them all! 😛

2. A Dreg (Six of Crows)

I’d love to be both a Grisha and a Dreg member, like our lovely Nina and Jesper. I mean, how cool is it? Be a sneaky troublemaker and have awesome powers.

3. Superhero (Marvel/DC)

I love superheroes and cool superpowers is something everyone would like to have. I don’t know what power I’d like as there is an infinity of options. Teleporting would be awesome, I could travel anywhere.

4. Assassin/Queen (Three Dark Crowns)

I’ve always dreamt of being a Princess (blame Disney) and assassins are really cool, so why not be both? The Queens in Three Dark Crowns have powers and have to murder one another to became The One True Queen. Count me in!

5. Supervisor (Percy Jackson and the Olympians/Harry Potter)

By not specifying what kind I can say I’d like to be a supervisor at Half-Blood Camp and Hogwarts. I love both and I’d give anything to become part of either worlds.

 

Honorable mentions:

Witch (Lots of books), Shadowhunter (Shadowhunter Chronicles), DigiDestined (Digimon), Antari (A Darker Shade of Magic), Night Circus Member (Night Circus), Time-traveler (Passenger) and Young Elite (The Young Elites).
