Top Ten Tuesday #30

I haven't participated in this meme since 2014! :O It's good to be back! I probably won't post every week.

This week's topic is Books that have been on my TBR the longest and I still haven't read. Most of my picks are embarrassing cause I'm really bad at reading books with a lot of pages.

1. Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman - I have the boxed set. Since 2012, I think. So embarrassing. 
2. The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson - The case of huge book syndrome. I have the first 5 books and they are collecting books on my bookshelf. Has anyone read it?
3. The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan - Got this as a early b-day present from mom a couple of years ago and I've been avoiding it cause I don't want to be disappointed. All of my friends seem to adore this book.
4. The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent - I kind of want to read past book 1 because of Tod. He's a cutie.
5. Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick - Ehhh... This series. This came during the Twilight craze so the romance is super unhealthy.
6. Going Bovine by Libba Bray - Dust collector. I love Libba but her books are loooong.
7. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta - It's a known fact Marchetta is amazing and allegedly, so is this trilogy. Will read it before I die. For now they're dust collectors.
8. Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor - I'm probably the only one who hasn't finished this trilogy. I wasn't a fan of the first book. :/ It was meh for me.
9. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray - Libba, Libba, Libba. I want to read this but the size is turning me off.
10. A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley - My friends love this book and it's been years since they read it. What am I waiting for? I dunno.

Monthly List: February 2018

Can't believe it's already February! Time sure is flying! I feel like November was just around the corner. Anyway, here's my very short Monthly List for February. I don't read adult novels on the regular anymore but some of these have caught my eye so I decided to put them on my already huge pile.


The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz | February 13th
Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella | February 13th
Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward | February 19th 
Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes | February 6th


Black Panther directed by Ryan Coogler | February 16th
Annihilation directed by Alex Garland | February 23rd

I'm so excited about Annihilation mostly because of the director. I love everything Alex Garland touches. He only recently started directing but he's been a screenwriter of some one my favorite movies.

TV shows

Altered Carbon | February 2nd
Life Sentence | February 27th
UnREAL | February 26th

Two new shows premiering this month and one, epic show is returning. I recently read Altered Carbon and I wasn't so impressed but I feel like I would love the show. Lucy Hale in a CW show! Yes! Yes! Yes! I hope it's cute and can replace the place in my heart previously held by Hart of Dixie. I need a cute dramedy in my life.
