Hello and happy Tuesday!
Yesterday I started back at school for the third term of my last year as a high school student … and I immediately started freaking out.
With only 9 weeks left at school and 9 weeks to make sure I get the grades to graduate, anxiety and self doubt have taken a hold of my brain.
And so I figured bribing myself into staying motivated and not having a breakdown would be a good idea and so I’ve made a wishlist of a few books I’m hoping to buy myself at the end of June, hopefully as a graduation present to myself!
1- The Devouring Grey by Christine Lynn Herman
I’ve been hearing a lot about this book recently and I must say, I’m intrigued. The cover’s really cool and the plot sounds mysterious so I think this could be a great quick read over summer.
2- The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare & Wesley Chu
I was hoping to get my hands on this sooner. So many people on Goodreads are already reading this and I’m dying to have my own copy! I even started reading the Bane Chronicles again to make me feel better.
3- Ghosts of the Shadow Market
Keeping with Shadowhunters, I really want to add this to my collection. It’s not out yet but by the time I finish my exams it will be and what better gift then a bunch of Jem Carstairs stories.
4- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
So I finished Fangirl recently and although I didn’t love it as much as everyone else seems to, I still seriously want to read Carry On, especially before the sequel.
5- Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian
I’ve been so excited for this release for so long now! I’m a bit hazy on the overall plot but it’s set during the AIDS crisis and I feel like it’s going to be super emotional but also really impactful and I am dying to read.
So those are the books I’m metaphorically dangling infront of myself like a carrot. The books I end up buying might vary from this list because it’s still 3 months away but I’m hoping the promise of 5 amazing books will get my arse in gear and graduate on time!
Thanks for reading.
