(A Very ARC Loaded) September TBR

Top Ten Tuesday(85)

This month’s TBR makes me think I really, really should have participated in ARC August….because these are ALL ARCs. I have got a TON of reading to do this month! I’m hoping I can get out of my mini reading slump here and power through all of these books because I really am excited to read all of them.

Girls Made of Snow & Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

This is a Snow White retelling that I’m currently trying to power through, it’s very interesting but the pacing is extremely uneven and I’m stuck in a super slow part at the moment.

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

I feel terrible I didn’t get to this one last month like I was supposed to. This may or may not be my cup of tea since it seems very romance-focused but hopefully the whole “harbinger of death” thing will keep things interesting!

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

This is a sci-fi novel about a character who is recruited by a corporation to leave Earth and mine a new valuable resource on another planet. However, this planet was kept secret and that’s not all the corporation is hiding. It sounds pretty exciting so I’m hoping it proves worth while!

The Devils You Know by M.C. Atwood

A group of seniors travel to Boulder House for their senior trip but the house is said to be cursed. When the characters get separated from the rest of their group they realize the truth is much more horrifying. Of course I’m always up for some YA horror, hopefully it’s thrilling!

The Tiger’s Daughter by K. Arsenault Rivera

Two young female warriors, whose births were prophesied, must save the world from demons. Sounds badass, period.

The Hanging Girl by Eileen Cook

Skye has been faking tarot card readings for a while but when the police ask her to help find a missing girl she already has some inside information. The kidnapping was planned and she was going to get a cut but things have taken a dark turn and she must find them before it’s too late. This sounds both spooky and thrilling so hopefully it will be a great read!

The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan

Bethan is an apprentice green healer in a clan of Welsh-Romanies, however, all isn’t well as the son of the chieftain and his friends brutally assault both Bethan and her friend Martyn. Bethan wants to bring Martyn back from death’s door but is told the price of the magic required is gruesome. When the boys who attacked her don’t come forward and apologize she knows where to collect those ingredients…..

This sounds super creepy and I’m really excited to get to it, I loooove YA horror!

This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

Sasha has everything working out for her: first chair clarinet, top of her class, the perfect boyfriend, and she has her way to being a star musician free and clear. However, a new guy shows up and she finds herself drawn to him and missing his touch even though she’s never met him. She then discovers she absorbed her twin in the womb which may explain her missing memories……

This is another books that sounds strangely creepy yet very mysterious and thrilling, I’m hoping it pans out!

Gray Wolf Island Tracey Neithercott

Right before her sister died she asked Ruby to find the treasure on Gray Wolf Island, armed with a treasure map and a few friends who are all touched by magic. However, each friend is keeping a secret and they must reveal it in order to reach the treasure.

Is it just me or are there not enough treasure themed books? This sounds really unique and compelling!

    Awesome TBR! I liked Girls Made of Snow and Glass, and REALLY enjoyed Black Bird of the Gallows. Nyxia is also on my September TBR, and my October TBR includes The Devils You Know, The Hanging Girl, and The Hollow Girl! They all sound so good and I’m actually having a hard time making myself wait until October for The Hollow Girl specifically, lol. Good luck!

      We have a TON of these books in common then! Yes I had to control myself a little more with The Hollow Girl as well but with so many ARCs I wanted to try and get them read and reviewed before their release dates…we will see how that goes since I usually can’t cram that much! πŸ™‚

        Oh man, I feel you, I have so many that are releasing over the next 4 weeks or so and I’m just feeling a tiny bit overwhelmed, to be honest, lol. It’s made me reevaluate how many I’m requesting, so I’m going to try to start being a bit more careful to REALLY think about a title before I request it. It’s such a catch-22, because I honestly end up enjoying almost all of the ARCs that I get, which makes it worthwhile to have requested them, but at the same time, I have so many unread books that I’ve purchased and never get the chance to read!

        Exactly! Just too many books in general and not enough time! I usually enjoy the ARCs I request as well so it’s not so much cutting back on those as much as I need to just read faster! Plus all of the books I’ve purchased glare at me in giant stacks on my shelves…..

        Exactly! That’s the thing, one of my reader friends who doesn’t do reviews was like, “Why don’t you just stop getting ARCs?” and I was like “BUT THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD ONES!” *flailing*

        That speaks to me on such a personal level, haha. I feel the same way because I’ve overloaded myself but then it’s like I CANNOT BE STOPPED! πŸ™‚
