Hi!


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
I'm currently watching Merlin and I'm going to start to figure out some books I'll be reading in Feb. Not great at sticking to plans but I'll really try this month. :)


message 6: by Sibil (new)

Sibil | 1712 comments I'm trying to figure out a list, too but I'm in a strange mood and it seems like I can't decide on anything at the moment.
But there are some series that I want to continue or start, so if someone is thinking about reading something written by one of these authors let me know!
Anne Bishop
A. Sapkowski
Patricia Briggs
Ilona Andrews
Seanan McGuire
Anne Aguirre
Sébastien De Castell
Michael J. Sullivan
David Dalglish
Faith Hunter
Darynda Jones
MaryJanice Davidson

Carolina Figueiredo (ghani_chan) | 400 comments Hi! Checking in!

Also, trying to keep up with the theme, I'm planing on reading:

1) "The Witchlands Series" by Susan Dennard:
Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1) by Susan Dennard Windwitch (The Witchlands, #2) by Susan Dennard Bloodwitch (The Witchlands, #3) by Susan Dennard

2) Some books by Taylor Jenkins Reid:
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

3) If possible, start the "Wayward Children Series" by Seanan McGuire:
Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1) by Seanan McGuire Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2) by Seanan McGuire Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children, #3) by Seanan McGuire In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children, #4) by Seanan McGuire

4) I'll also read some graphic novels, but I don't think they receive bonus points and I'm not sure that they count for the theme of the challenge (same author)
Fables, Vol. 8 Wolves by Bill Willingham Fables, Vol. 9 Sons of Empire by Bill Willingham The Faust Act (The Wicked + The Divine #1) by Kieron Gillen Fandemonium (The Wicked + The Divine #2) by Kieron Gillen

I know it's ambitious and reading all these series will also depend on if I'll like the first book of each one, but this is it.

message 9: by Sibil (new)

Sibil | 1712 comments @Carolina I have Thrutwitch on my eReader and I was seriously thinking about dismissing it but if you are reading it I can give it a try!
And I love that series by McGuire! I have read the first two and this is the perfect excuse to continue it!

Normally I would jump on the Anne Bishop but I re-read her Other series too often for it to count. I might take a look at her other books though.

I need to double check the re-read dates but I was hoping to read Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1) by Patricia Briggs because her new book comes out the 10th of March.

I have a few Ilona Andrews I also need to read.

The Others! 😍 I was thinking about starting this series Sebastian (Die dunklen Welten #1) by Anne Bishop or re-reading Daughter of the Blood (The Black Jewels, #1) by Anne Bishop because I read it years ago and now I don't remember a lot. If you find something by her that you want to read let me know so I'll read something too!

And I have both Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson, #9) by Patricia Briggs and Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega, #2) by Patricia Briggs waiting for me, so I would definitely read them in February!

IKR? Sooooooooooooooooo good. I still have to read Wild Country (The World of the Others, #2; The Others, #7) by Anne Bishop this month or next month but it won't count. It's my one book I'm allowing myself.

Awesome! I'm doing a whole re-read. I think I'll try it on audio but I also have them at the library I think. So I can read them if I can't listen. :)

I hope you would love it!!!
And that's great, so we can have some bonus point for Patricia Briggs (and I can use it as an excuse to continue some series, because series are my weakest point! I start a ton of them and then I struggle to continue them all!)


message 14: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
Sadly neither of her spin off books are great. I think I actually perfer Lake Silence but they are still good. Just nowhere near the her main series.

Same here. I usually end up finishing them eventually but if I don't read them all at once some just languish.

Hello team!

I know Ashleigh and I plan on reading a bunch of CoHo because they're quick. We all need to read and read at least 5 books for the same author within the group so that we get bonus points. So this is a big team challenge where we gotta work together. Personally Ash and I are doing 4 CoHo books each ourselves this month, as well as a Christina Lauren. So if anyone is interested we'll definitely need the bonus points.

TBR:
A Princess in Theory (Reluctant Royals, #1) by Alyssa Cole It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover Confess by Colleen Hoover Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover November 9 by Colleen Hoover Without Merit by Colleen Hoover All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1) by Douglas Adams The Other People by C.J. Tudor Elantris (Elantris, #1) by Brandon Sanderson

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
I highly doubt I'll get all of them done, especially as it'll be first month of proper full-time work, but I tend to speed through contemporaries so fingers crossed!

I'll see if I like any Colleen Hover books. Not a great fan of contemporary but there might be a short audio I could try. :)

I could try Never Never if my library has it. It's at least paranormal. :)

That's perfect! We can ask for BRs for this. When it's best for you?


message 20: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
@Anna: I'm not re-reading Never Never, I didn't like that at all and I don't count it as a CoHo :p


message 21: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (last edited Jan 26, 2020 01:23PM) (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
Ah. Are there any others of her that are not strictly contemporary?


message 22: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
I'm also reading:
First Year (The Black Mage, #1) by Rachel E. Carter (which is on KU) and Kingdom of Ash and Briars (The Nissera Chronicles, #1) by Hannah West

If anyone wants to BR any of those I'd love you! I feel like it'll be hard to get bonus points in this challenge..


message 23: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
I think I have at least one of the Rachel E Carter books. I'll check in a bit.


message 24: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
There is Verity but that's not on my list to BR. But I mean you can read whatever CoHo you'd like, we just gotta get the bonus points

Perfect! I'm planning on doing #1 and #0.5


message 25: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
Surprisingly Verity doesn't sound too bad. I'm not usually into thrillers but I'll try this if I have the audio available. :)


message 26: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
It wasn't like a proper thriller, but is was a very crazy ride! I could almost re-do it, but I don't have time XD Or money to buy it. I'm collecting CoHo this year

I am reluctant to MAKE brs as I just suck at keeping them. Hopefully someone else will make a thread and I can jump in. :)

I figured we could put the Author on the left and the book we are reading. Then check the box with your name and then you can 'color' it with CR, Finished, Reviwed, Posted. When the 5th person has read a book we will mark it as Y and maybe color it a different color or 'scratch' it?

I honestly think I'm worse. I barely even ever show up. :/ I am really trying though to do better though. lol.

I'll take a look at the BR threads and see what we might be able to all join in on. There were some good ones I saw last I looked.


message 33: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
I was thinking maybe we could also colour code the authors? I know that's tricky though XD Just so it's clear how many books by each author we've read?

Especially with my full-time work, I've got no time. Only reason why I went challenge is because of the CoHo and I know that I speed through her books

I think I can do it. Just have to remember how. I'll try it with Colleen Hoover.

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
Okay awesome! Thanks! I'm definitely starting the month off with Confess, so I'll add that now. I'm so glad the 1st and 2nd are weekend days! I'll try and complete Confess then.

I also have the 6th off for a public holiday, which is a Thursday, so I'll get some reading in then. Although I'm not sure how much reading I get done during the weekdays anymore as I leave at 7am and get home at 6.30pm. Then it's basically dinner, and then an hour or two of chill time before I sleep. And that includes mod stuff in there as well.


message 38: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments Hey, Team! I'm checking in. I'm planning on reading these books/authors:
-Supernova by Marissa Meyer (I'm reading the other two now.)
-The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
-The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett
-Some Jodi Picoult novels (Can't remember the titles of the ones I picked out)
-The Selection series by Kiera Cass
-Some Sarah Dessen books (Can't remember the titles I picked out)
-The Siren by Kiera Cass
-9 Days and 9 Nights by Katie Cotugno (I read the first book in January, so I want to finish the duology.
If anybody wants to buddy read any of these books with me, just tell me. I know I won't be able to read all these books, though. School and sports weighs me down some.


message 39: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47757 comments Mod
I need to buy and read Winter, but that won't be for a good while. I also have some Picoult but no time left for those hefty books.

One thing I dislike about adult novels is they're all really similar length and font and font size. It's frustrating why they can't have bigger fonts

I'll just really have to see what happens next month. I've been enjoying my other hobbies at the moment as well

I like her. I would say she is in my top 100? I loved Cinder but some of her other books have fallen a bit flat for me.
