Small Towns – #5OnMyTBR

Hi and howdy.

I am back this week with another round of #5OnMyTBR. I skipped a couple of weeks because I had no time to make a list of decent answers but I’m really excited with todays list of books all about small towns. This was actually quite hard to put together though.

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.


Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills

I’ve been very interested in reading something by Emma Mills recently. First of all, her covers are all super cute and I feel like her plots sound cute too.

This book in particular follows a girl called Sophie whose small town school marching band is selected to march in the Rose Parade and Sophie is in charge of getting them to L.A. Her plan to get them there includes convincing the towns famous country singer, Megan Pleasant, to go back home and headline a fundraiser.

The only problem is that Megan has publicly sworn to never return home.

Death – #5OnMyTBR

Hello and happy Monday 🙂

It’s another month with a whole new set of prompts for #5OnMyTBR with this weeks prompt being death.

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.

I’ve chosen books this week where death is the main driving force for the novel whether it be a big murder or a character grieving etc. I also only have 4 books on this list because I was struggling 😂


Turtle Under Ice by Juleah del Rosario

I haven’t heard anything about this recent February release and I’m mad about that because not only does it have a really pretty cover, it also sounds really interesting.

Turtle Under Ice follows a girl called Rowena (awesome name btw) as she navigates grief, guilt and her own identity in the wake of her sisters disappearance just a couple years after their mothers death.

I don’t really know what to expect from this because, like I said, I’ve heard nothing about it, but I’m intrigued.

Halloween Freebie – #5OnMyTBR

Hello 😊 Welcome to my blog.

It’s Halloween week which means a weeks worth of Halloween themed posts starting off with a #5OnMyTBR Halloween freebie.

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.

Today I’m going to be talking about 5 spooky/creepy/paranormal books that I want to have read by next halloween. I did this last year and epically failed.I ended up only reading one book out of six on that list but I’m hoping for better results this time around.


The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

I forgot this book existed and I’m very sad about this. I’d seen this around a couple of years ago, added it to my Goodreads, added it to my Amazon Wishlist, the whole shabang … and then never thought about it again until recently.

The Casquette Girls is set in New Orleans, in the French Quatter and seems to be full of paranormal goodness. It’s got witches and vampires and I’m so excited to read this.

I’ve been wanting to read a New Orleans paranormal urban fantasy for what feels like forever so I’ve got all my fingers crossed that this is everything I’ve ever wanted.

Enemies to Lovers – #5OnMyTBR

Howdy and happy Monday!

Weekends are meant to be for chilling and relaxing but I do not feel chilled or relaxed. Ughhh the joys of new adulthood.😭😴

Anyways. It’s Monday which means it’s time for another round of #5OnMyTBR this week we’re talking all things Enemies to Lovers. This is one of my favourite tropes, how could it not be, but I actually only have a few books on my TBR.

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon

This has the bluest book cover ever and I love it.

Today Tonight Tomorrow follows Rowan and Neil who have been rivals for all of high school. But when Neil wins Valedictorian Rowan only has one last chance to beat him one last time: win the senior class game called Howl.

After learning that a group of seniors are out to sabotage them Rowan and Neil begrudgingly team up. As the game takes them all over Seattle they learn so much more about each other and FEELINGS HAPPEN!! Obviously

This seems like a fun one.

Historical – #5OnMyTBR

Howdy and happy Monday! It’s an especially happy Monday today because here in Spain it’s a bank holiday meaning no school! As a tired student I would like to thank whoever created the idea of bank holidays. You’re the real hero of this story.

Today I am back with another round of #5OnMyTBR and today we’re talking all about Historical books.

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.

I am taking three history classes this year: Art History, Spanish History and History of Philosophy, (four if you count my Latin class), so you’d think I’d be into historical fiction novels but alas, I barely ever read them.

While Historical Fiction is one of my least favourite genres I am interested in reading more I just got to find my personal sweet spot within the genre and I think these books I’m about to talk about could be that.


This Is Not the Jess Show by Anna Carey

We’re starting off this list with an odd one because while this does have historical themes, this book is actually set in the future!

This is Not the Jess Show is basically a YA version of The Truman Show in that it’s a thriller novel about a girl whose life has been one big production, filmed and broadcasted to the world without her knowing.

The historical themes of this and why I’m including it on this list is because it’s kind of but kind of not set in the 90’s. It’s hard to explain so I’ll just say GO READ THIS BOOK WHEN IT COMES OUT!!

I got an ARC of this and I’m currently reading it and I am loving it but I’m unclear on the release date. Goodreads says November 2020, Netgalley says January 2021 so who knows!

✨Magic✨- #5OnMyTBR

Hi, hey, hello!! Happy Monday 🙂

Why does productivity strike at the absolute worst time? It’s currently 2am. I’ve not long finished my shift and instead of trying to sleep so I can power through on all of my homework tomorrow I am sat here, eating Cheerios, catching up on YouTube drama and I’m about to talk all about Magic Books!!!

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.


A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik

This book is beautiful and I have all of my fingers crossed that the insides are just as good.

A Deadly Education is set at a school for the magically gifted called “The Scholomance” where learning has never been so deadly. Other then that I know that the main character is called El but that’s about it.

I’ve seen people reading this and God I’m so jealous. I’m sticking this on my Christmas list so I probably won’t get to it for a few months but I’m excited.

Books About Book – #5OnMyTBR

Hi, hello and howdy!!

It’s Monday which means it’s time for another round of #5OnMyTBR. Yayyy!!!

It was my first week back at school last week after nearly 6 months off so I was anxious as hell, which lead to me binging Netfix all weekend as a distraction. Because I chose to watch a lot of TV instead of being productive I ended up missing last weeks round but I’m back today to talk all about Books About Books that I want to read 🙂

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.


By the Book by Amanda Sellet

This cover is cute 😍

By the Book follows a classical book lover, Mary, who starts writing a list of “the Scoundrel Survival Guide, a rundown of literary types to be avoided at all costs” after a girl at her school falls for “a notorious cad” (btw I have no idea was “a notorious cad” means but I’m intrigued”).

But then Mary goes and falls for the number one bad boy on her list.

I’m probably going to be totally out of the loop when it comes to mentions of classics but I am a sucker for books with badboys so I’m super interested!

Red Covers – #5OnMyTBR

(still not used to the new set up so something went dodgy with my scheduling over the weekend so sorry for anyone seeing this twice lol)

Hello and happy Monday 😊

Tis my last week of sweet, sweet freedom before school starts so I’m being productive today (getting ahead on reviews, planning out a blog schedule, taking my dog to the vets) so that I can spend the rest of my time sleeping and reading.

Today I’m back with another round of #5OnMyTBR! Today’s theme is Red Covers and I struggled. At the minute I have 4 on this list so we’ll see if I can think up a fourth by thetime I reach the end.

1) Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer

The existence of this book is more evidence to the fact that I’m a psychic. No joke I read the 2008 leaked version of this only a couple of weeks before the official announcement of this being published. PSYCHIC!!

If you’re somehow not aware, this book is a retelling of Twilight from Edwards point of view. Something I genuinely asked the universe for. Proof of this is HERE in this blog post.

I am thankfully saved from spending way too much on this beast of a book because my best friend bought it however she preffers Audiobooks so I’m keeping it at my house away from her sister and I plan on starting this soon.

I’m actually planning on annotating this for my friend, leaving sarcastic comments and things to make it more entertaining for the both of us.

(I don’t have many red covers. There’s a significant amount of red on this cover. It counts)

Autumn Reads – #5OnMyTBR

Hello and happy Monday☺

We’re kicking the week off with two new changes! The first being that after two years of blogging I have finally figured out how to make my blog actually look kinda cute! Gone are the solid colours and fonts I never liked! It’s incredibly embarrassing that it took me this long to figure it out but I’m super happy with how everything looks now

The second new change is that this month I am taking part in #5OnMyTBR. I’ve seen this weekly meme floating around the place for a while now and it seems really. With me going back to school this month it seems like the perfect time to participate too.

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @Local Bee Hunter’s Nook  and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.

This weeks theme is Autumn Reads and so here are 5 books I think are going to be perfect for the Autumn time and are actually books that I’m hoping to get to over the next three months.


1) The Guinevere Deception by Kirsten White

Does this book cover not just scream Autumnal vibes to you? Because it does to me and I’ve definitely been holding out to read it.

The Guinevere Deception follows Princess Guinevere who is sent to Camelot by the great wizard Merlin to marry and protect King Arthur.

I love Arthurian legend inspired books and shows. I literally started watching Cursed on Netflix last week and watching that show has gotten me even more excited for this book!
