A TBR: September 2017

Hi, and thanks for stopping by.

Today's post is a TBR for this month. I don't usually set specific books to read per month, because I'm definitely more of a mood reader, but these are some books that I particularly want to get to ASAP, either because I've had them for ages or I've just got them and can't wait to get started! Here goes - please let me know if you've read any of these & what you thought by leaving a comment in the comments section down below. Also, please feel free to follow my blog if you enjoyed your visit.

The more Emma and Josh learn about their future lives, the more obsessed they become on changing the destiny that awaits them. But what if focusing on the future, means that you miss something that's right in front of you?

victoria aveyard’s red queen

This is a world divided by blood - red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. Fearful of Mare's potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance - Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart . . .
