Let Me Persuade You to Spend All Your Money on Books | Fall 2019 Books to Preorder

Hi friends, I hope the end of the summer has been treating you well! I’m bringing you a post today inspired by the recent announcement of the Gravemaidens preorder campaign (which I’ll talk a bunch more about down below).

Here’s a short but highly enthusiastic, just-imagine-I’m-yelling-all-of-this-in-caps, list of books I think you should spend that extra money on to preorder (or request at your local library, if your pockets are looking a bit bleak like mine) before the end of 2019. Now, there’s approximately 18000000 books I could include on this list, but I decided to only mention the ones that I’ve already read and loved, and/or the ones that have some pretty unbeatable preorder campaigns! So basically, these are all the fall 2019 books I’m over the top excited about, minus Ninth House because you all don’t need me to yell about that book even more than I already have, lol.

And a general note: if you’re able to, I highly suggest preordering/purchasing these books from your local indie bookstore! You can use IndieBound to find a store near you. Alright, prepare yourselves for some very long, rambling excitement about these books friends!

9 Book Series I Want to Finish in 2019

Hello fellow bookworms! This post is a bit late (like everything seems to be with me and my blog), I wanted to get it up in early January when everybody was still making New Years/2019-themed posts, but now it just gets to be special!

As I’m sure you can all sympathize, my TBR is actually an atrocity against humankind. I’ve noticed something in particular about my reading patterns over the last couple years though – I’m absolutely terrible at finishing series.

I used to be a really big fan of long series when I was a kid – all the Percy Jackson books, Magic Tree House, it didn’t matter what it was, I was never deterred by a long list of sequels. In fact, I preferred it. But once I started counting the books I read on Goodreads, getting into the book community, and receiving ARCs, I switched to a vast majority of standalones.

But one of my big goals for 2019 (that I’m already low-key failing at but it’s FINE) is to read and request less ARCs, so that I can finally turn my attention to the mountains of books – specifically sequels – I have on my shelves. Here’s a list of all the series I’d really like to finish (if all the books are out) or continue (up to the most recent release if not all the books are out yet) in 2019!

End of the Year TBR (Yes, I’m Really Trying to Meet that Reading Challenge)

Copy of YALLFest 2018 Wrap-Up

Hellooo friends! I’m getting tired of having to start every post with an apology and explanation for why I haven’t been posting, but we’ll just chalk it up to the fact that college – and 2018 as a whole – has been reeeal crappy to me. Hopefully in the new year, I can get all the technical issues worked out with this blog and post more frequently, because I really miss interacting with you all!

Today, I’m here to present to you the ultimate race against time. A mad dash against the laws of bookish physics. I, the biggest mess of a book blogger and bookstagrammer in history, am actually attempting to stick to a TBR to meet my Goodreads goal.

And, as of right now, I’m actually sticking to it.

I know, start knocking on all the wood in your house and perform your spiritualist rituals, because I feel like even writing that sentence out has jinxed me and will make it all go away. But my goal for the year was to read 45 books, and I’m currently on book number 37.

Soooo, it’s not impossible. I can feel it, just out of reach. I have to read 9 books in exactly 14 days, or two weeks. So here’s the list of books I have tentatively planned out to read! Just click on the covers to be taken to their Goodreads pages.
