Bout of Books 13.0 TBR

Hello people of the universe! Have you ever heard of the Bout of Books read-a-thon? If you haven't, then let me tell you more about it. It is a week long read-a-thon from Monday to Sunday and it starts at midnight, YOUR time! You can use Twitter for updates by using the hashtag #boutofbooks For more information, you guys can check out Bout of Books Information
So Bout of Books 13.0 starts on Monday 11 May which is today! Are you guys excited?  So let me now tell you my TBR for this read-a-thon!

So I only have three books that I would really want to complete by this week! I don't have a lot of high hopes for this read-a-thon, actually I don't have any high hopes for ANY of the read-a-thons that I participated. However, I seriously want to complete these three books by this week before moving to other books because I am seriously lacking in my reading and I'm already TWELVE books behind my Goodreads reading challenge! How bad is that? Sigh...

So without further ado, let us get started!

The first book that I want to read is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I'm only about a 120 pages into it, and hopefully I can at least finish reading it by the first or second day of the read-a-thon! I'm really enjoying Red Queen, although it is still a little slow at this point in time, hopefully the story picks up speed so that I can power my way through it!

Next, I would like to read Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas! I have started reading it in April as you guys know if you have read my last May TBR post, if you haven't click here : May'15 TBR!!! I was only about 41 pages into it, and it was a really interesting read! So I can't wait to get back into the assassin's world!

Last but not least, I want to complete reading Looking for Alaska by John Green! Or at least get started on it before the read-a-thon ends! I'm really excited to read this book because I have heard a lot of great things by people from the Bookstagram community and it makes me so excited to pick it up and read it! This will be my second book by John Green, the first one being TFIOS which I seriously enjoyed, so I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

All right, and that is all for this post! Are you guys going to be reading anything this week? Are you guys going to do this challenge? I do hope you join in, because I'm sure it will be fun! I hope you guys will have enough time to think of a TBR or just go with your mood on the books to pick! With that, I will end this post here. Hope you guys will have a great reading time this weekend! Muacks! XD

May'15 TBR!!!

Hi guys, wondering where's my TBR gone to for months?? I didn't have any time during the past few months, so I just read whatever I wanted, which resulted in how I didn't read a lot of books. However, this month, I decided to do a TBR because I will be finishing my mid years in the middle of May, so why not? So I just want to read a few books to maybe catch up on my goal for my Goodreads goals, which may seem impossible, and I also doubt myself.

Same thing as my other TBR posts, I will be writing the synopsis for the books at the end of this post! So let's get started:

First of all, I want to read Throne of Glass by Sarah J.Maas, picked it up last month but put down to read Red Queen.



Next, Looking for Alaska by John Green! I heard so many great things about this book and just want to check it out for myself! I also picked up last month and only read a few pages before putting down to read Red Queen. Yes, I know, I was in a reading slump alright? XD


The third book I want to read is, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Yeah, I haven't finish reading it yet. :X oopsies!! So yeah, I'm going to continue reading this book in May again.

I'm pretty excited for this month TBR, although to tell you the truth, I can only start reading on the 2nd week of May. I'm having my exams on the first week!! :'( Oh well, my exams are ending soon on Friday!! Hell yeah! Although today is only Thursday. Hmm, this topic is getting kind of depressing.
All right, so 3 books this month is what I'm aiming to accomplish! Hopefully I can at least finish 2 books this month, despite the busy schedule!

Scroll down for synopsis of the books on top!

Synopsis:
Throne of Glass:
In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king's champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien. 
The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass--and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Looking for Alaska:
Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (Fran├žois Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. 
After. Nothing is ever the same.

Red Queen:
The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.
To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.
Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.
But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?

That's all for now! I hope you guys will have a great reading month in May! I will be posting more soon, so until then, happy reading!! Muacks! XD
