TBR

The Lake House – Kate Morton

My Lady Jane – Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows

A Court Of Thorns And Roses – Sarah J. Maas

Court Of Mist And Fury – Sarah J. Maas

This is a very hesitant TBR because I have NO IDEA how much time I’ll be able to find for reading this month, with going back to school and whatnot. Last year, I was so overwhelmed with the transition to college that I barely read for pleasure fall semester. I definitely don’t want to do that again. Hopefully, since this is my second year of college, I’ll be able to strike that balance between school and personal more quickly this time around. But then again, who knows.

That being said, I’m really excited to read the four books I have listed above, so I’ll probably find a way to sneak in some time to read in order to finish them all. The Lake House intrigues me; I have heard nothing but good things about My Lady Jane. And even though the aren’t normally the types of books I gravitate towards, I’m looking forward to seeing what all the fuss concerning the A Court Of Thorns And Roses series is about. That being said, I have formed some pretty high expectations for those two books considering all the praise they receive on Twitter.

Here’s to a great month!
