T5W: Books at the Top of My TBR

January 23rd: Top of Your TBR  

I had to really think about this one, because I don’t really do TBRs (I feel like a broken record because of how often I say that 😛 ), and I’m a mood reader. Plus, yesterday’s T10T topic had a few books I would normally put on a list like this one, and I’m trying not to repeat stuff too much.

In no particular order, as usual…

Saga, Vol. 2 (Saga, #2)

Saga vol. 2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples– I bought this one last year, I think, but I still haven’t read it. I think I might pick it up really soon, though, because I’m anxious to get back into this series.

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2)

Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire– I own this one and the next book, and yet… It’s not like I can blame the size of the book, because this is a novella series of companion novels. And, making it even worse, this one focuses a lot on my favorite character from Every Heart a Doorway. I need to read this, like, a year ago :/

The Bone Witch (The Bone Witch, #1)

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco– So! Excited! I’m waiting (probably, at least) until closer to the release of Shadow Glass, so I can binge my way through this series if I want to.

Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy, #1)

Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan– I got an e-ARC from Net Galley, and I’m really looking forward to this one. I want to say I was kind of aware of this being in the works, because of tumblr? But I might be remembering wrong. This one comes out in April, so I’m probably going to read it next month.

Caraval (Caraval, #1)

Caraval by Stephanie Garber– This book plummeted to the bottom of my TBR because of less-than-amazing reviews. I needed some time to distance myself from the hype, and the comparisons (to The Night Circus, one of my favorite books ever) that were made in the marketing of this one, so I could adjust my expectations. Now, I think I’m ready, and the timing is perfect because the last book (Finale) comes out in May.

What are some books at the top of your TBR?

T5W: Favorite SFF Cover Art

May 3rd: Favorite SFF Cover Art *Booktube SFF Awards Crossover Topic*
— Show off some of your favorite science fiction and fantasy cover art!


Ok, this was too hard, so I decided to narrow my options down to only covers for 2017 releases. There are just too many amazing SFF covers out there, and even narrowing it down to just this year’s releases was a little hard.

In no particular order, as usual…



A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab–love all the Shades of Magic covers, but I think this one might be my favorite of the three.






UK cover

US cover

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor– I couldn’t help but add this one to the list ❤ I love both the US and UK covers, and now that I have a copy, I’m almost wishing I’d ordered the UK edition instead because of the blue edged pages. I’m envious of everyone who has that edition.







27 Hours by Tristina Wright– I’m not even exactly sure what it is that I love about this cover, but oh well, it made the list. This is also one of my most anticipated books for the second half of the year.

(Expected publication: October 3rd, 2017)




US cover

UK cover

Caraval by Stephanie Garber– I just love it. I’m pretty sure even my husband said he liked this book’s cover, and he rarely comments on that kind of thing. While I love the UK edition, I think I like the US just a tiny bit more, and if I buy it, that’s the one I’ll get.







The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember– This is one of my most anticipated 2017 releases and I absolutely adore the cover! Look at it! I can’t wait to see it in person ❤

(It’s coming out May 4th, AKA tomorrow!)
