#CurrentlyReading // Early June ARC and TBR Pile

If you’ve followed along my blog for a while, you’ve probably noticed I don’t do weekly TBR posts. But I have decided to try out doing #currentlyreading posts. Hopefully, I’ll be posting currently reading posts about every two weeks or at least once a month. 

Also, after Emma chatted about raising her Goodreads goals, I’ve officially raised mine from 75 to 100 books. Eeek! I’ve also been requesting a lot of ARCs lately. Though Edelweiss turned down my request for the Wicked King. =(

    

The Art of French Kissing

I’m about 20% into this book and it’s so fun and cute! It reminds me a lot of Chopped and other cooking shows. And the enemies-to-lovers trope is definitely happening.

Renegades

This book is gigantic. I picked it up from the library and I honestly don’t understand how it is so big? I’ve heard around the book world that is pretty slow but is good once you get into it? And the sequel has just recently been announced.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book #1

I picked up the first two Magnus Chase from the library and am hoping to read this book in the next two weeks!

   

The Romanov Empress

Since I love good historical fiction, I’m very excited for this book! It’s being compared to Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir and since I enjoyed both of these authors, this book sounds perfect. I also have always enjoyed reading about Anastasia and since she was Maria’s favorite granddaughter, I’m hoping Anastasia plays a big role in this book.

Lost Boy

So this book doesn’t have too much of a synopsis but it’s intriguing? About a boy leaving a polygamous community and growing up? Definitely going into this book not knowing too much about it.

Pride

So a Latino/Afro retelling of Pride and Prejudice…YES! I am very excited for this upcoming book! Also just look at that cover. Just beautiful.

   

Dear Rachel Maddow 

I just found out Netgalley approved my request for this book! But I have to read it by June 5th…so probably staying up tonight to finish this book.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

I’ve heard all sorts of good things about this book. And the cover is gorgeous. Anyway, it’s been on my TBR for a while and I nabbed it from the library to read ASAP.

Queens of Geek

Another book I’ve heard about a TON. So I grabbed it from the library for a June read!

lets chat

What are you currently reading? Have you read any of the books I’m currently reading? Anything you think I should try to read this month?

    I’m really excited to read Aristotle and Dante as well & I hope you enjoy Renegades! It’s pretty massive, but I remember flying through it. 🙂

      I just finished Ari & Dante and it was so good! Renegades is so massive, ha!

        Ahhh okay, now my expectations are even higher. 🙈 I’m happy you enjoyed it!! ❤️

    Oh, I didn’t realize Renegades was long- is it like Winter? Ooh, Pride and Lost Boy sound very interesting. Right now I’m reading Being Mortal. I’m also reading Candide and A Tale of Two Cities (which I know you love :)) for school. I’m excited to see your next TBR list!

    • June 5, 2018 / 2:38 pm

      Renegades is only 600 pages, so a tad shorter than Winter. But it’s the first in a series, so pretty long for a first book!
      Oh, A Tale of Two Cities, now I want to go reread it for the fourth time! hahaha! And Candide is on my list, it had such an interesting impact on French history and I really like Voltaire.

        600 pages is not a short book. Wait, it’s a series?? I did not know that.
        Hahaha, I hope I love A Tale of Two Cities as much as you do! So far, Candide kind of reminds me of Catch-22.

    Currently reading Glass Sword and then I’m going to read King’s Cage and War Storm. After those I’m hoping to reread Caraval and then read Legendary.

    • June 5, 2018 / 2:39 pm

      I’ve never picked up that series! But I’ve heard lots about it so I may try it sometime!

    I’m currently reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! It’s a first read-through of the series and I’m really enjoying it! I hope you enjoy all of your reads!! 🙂

    • June 5, 2018 / 2:42 pm

      Oh, that’s so exciting! Azkaban is one of my fav books in the entire series!

    I haven’t read many of these, but a lot of them look like books I need to add to my TBR very soon… happy reading! 🙂
