TBR: Middle Gradeathon Round 2 (To Be Read)

Hey everyone! Welcome back and if you’re new, I’m Amanda from A Court of Books and Love.

If you didn’t know, Middle Gradeathon is having their second round starting December 3rd! And I’m cohosting it! Check out my announcement post here!

I’m so pumped for this readathon! I can’t wait to read all of the middle grade!

I don’t have too many middle grade books on my shelves but I definitely plan on trying to get to as many challenges as I can.

Let’s talk about what I’m reading.

And I hope you appreciate the High School Musical gifs. I am watching the second one while I type this.


Shugo Chara Vol 1

This will be for the challenges of a book from your childhood and a MG graphic novel.

I didn’t actually read this back in the day, but I did watch a lot of it. I remember it being cute and kind of ridiculous. But I can’t wait to read it!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

22456224

I’m kind of cheating for this challenge but I really want to read this book. So I’m going to be using this for a book that’s won/nominated for an award. It’s won a few for both the book and the movie but not necessarily any notable ones. This will also be counting for a MG that’s hyped for you.

I plan on reading this one to my son and hopefully getting through it during the week. I doubt that I will be able to but we’ve started to so maybe we can finish it.

Amina’s Voice by Hena Khan

30312547

This book will count for the group book. I don’t have it yet, but I will be getting it tomorrow (Saturday).

I can’t wait to get into this book. It sounds so good!


Let me know what you’ll be reading for this readathon! I’m so very excited for this!

Happy reading! Bye!

TBR: December 2017 (To Be Read)

Hey everyone! Welcome back and if you’re new, I’m Amanda from A Court of Books and Love.

Today I’m going to talk about my December TBR.

I want to catch up on my arcs this month. I’m going to be participating in one readathon but there will be a separate TBR going up for that closer to the date of it starting.

So let’s get into this.


My True Love Gave To Me anthology

So this is currently the only book on my TBR that’s not an arc. I got it from BookOutlet and I don’t have it yet. So I can’t post a personal photo of it. None of these will have personal photos because they are all arcs and I haven’t mastered photos of my tablet screen. Any recs for making them better, let me know!

I plan on reading one story a day for this book leading up to Christmas. Hopefully I enjoy it!

20309175


Genuine Fraud by E Lockhart

I won this book in a giveaway on Twitter but haven’t finished it yet. So I would like to finish it this month!

33843362


Hard Rules by Lisa Renee Jones

I got this book from NetGalley and I haven’t read it yet. I started it and got 38% through it. I plan on finishing it this month and I have the faith that I’ll be able to.

26199231


The Note by Zoe Folbigg

I got this book from NetGalley also and I’m very interested in it. It came out in October but I haven’t read it yet. I can’t wait to get into it.

35648195


Antisocial by Heidi Cullinan

Another one that I haven’t started that I got from NetGalley. I really need to get through these.

35652776


Manga Classic: Great Expectations

This should be a fairly quick read. I’ve started it. I’ve read Great Expectations before but I haven’t read the manga classic so I’m excited to get through it.

23332875


Manga Classic: The Scarlet Letter

I haven’t read this or the original so I’m very excited to get through it. I think I got the book from BookOutlet but I think I’ll read this version first.

I don’t have a photo of this because I couldn’t find it on GoodReads and I’m too lazy to look elsewhere. Oops.


Manga Classic: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe

Here’s another one that I’ve started but haven’t finished. But I’m definitely looking forward to it.

33776413


So outside of the readathon, that’s 8 books. I’m hoping to be able to get through all of these in December but we’ll see. I mean, I am on break from school after Christmas Eve so I should have plenty of time around then.

I want to get my average on NetGalley up before the end of the year and I know that this will help with that. Think of this as ARC December.

Let me know what you’re reading in the comments. I’d love to know!

Thanks for reading and I will see you all in the next one! Happy reading! Bye!

TBR: Holiday Emojiathon/Minimoji

Hey everyone! Welcome back and if you’re new, I’m Amanda from A Court of Books and Love.

Today I have my TBR for Emojiathon!

You can find the Twitter for Emojiathon here.

The challenges are on this document if you would like to view them all.

Let’s get into this.

tumblr_ntdsw6pP4F1udgnryo1_500.gif


Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer

img_6437

I started this book long before I got into BookTube and back into reading, but I got about halfway through and put it down.

If you don’t know, I’m a vegetarian. I have been for a year and four months now (I have a counter on my phone xD). And before that, I had been for over two years, but decided to stop because I got pregnant for my son. But this book is so hard for me to read. It’s so hard hitting and makes me rethink everything. Which is the point of it and that makes me happy, but man oh man. I can only take doses of this. But I’m hoping to be able to finish it. I only have about half of it left. I think it was less than 100 pages.

This will apply for the challenges book with green on the cover and ghost of Christmas past – read a book that’s been haunting your TBR for over a year.

tumblr_nqqlu3A5MQ1tmccsmo1_540.gif


Doctor Who: Twelve Doctors of Christmas

83.jpg

I was originally going to wait to read this until Christmas, but it fits for this readathon so perfectly! So I’m going to read a story throughout the week. I’ll be starting it prior to Emojiathon starting but that’s okay.

From what I gathered, these are just some Doctor Who like stories, each from one of the Doctor’s POVs., all on Christmas.

This will count for the challenges of a book that has the Christmas spirit (a Christmas book), book set in winter, book with snow on the cover, and book that features travel. I’ll choose two out of those at the end of the readathon but those are what it could count for.

tumblr_ntdz1uDKGH1udgnryo1_500.gif


When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I got this book when it came out and I still haven’t read it. I’m so excited to get into it. I believe I’m buddy reading this with Donna from A Mom’s Book Collection and Jessica from JessicaMarie493. I’m just super excited to get into it.

All I really know about this book is that the two main characters are arranged to be married by their families, he supports it and she doesn’t. They end up in the same computer coding camp one summer and, I believe, she finds out about the arranged marriage there.

This will count for warm/fuzzy read, shiny new toy – read a book you’ve been dying to get to, and dreaming of Christmas in July – a book set in summer.

tumblr_nyc2uglCXX1sg1ksjo2_r1_500.gif


So that’s it for my TBR! It’s not a very large on but it’s only a week so finishing 3 books would be exciting.

I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you in the next one. Don’t forget to like this post and follow my blog and Instagram for more book related photos.

Happy reading! Bye!

TBR: Contemporaryathon November 2017

Hey everyone! Welcome back to my channel and if you’re new, I’m Amanda from A Court of Books and Love!

Today I have my TBR for Contemporaryathon!

Contemporaryathon is a readathon that is being held from November 13th to the 19th.

This readathon is held by Chelsea at ChelseaDollingReads and Julie from Pages and Pens.

Here are their announcement videos.

Julie’s Video
Chelsea’s Video

Let’s just say that I am being very over ambitious as always.

Let’s do this.

tumblr_oxw9ilWvdM1vvfsp9o2_540.gif


You by Caroline Kepnes

This book will be counting for the challenge of read an adult contemporary.

I can’t wait to get into this book. I feel like the psychology nerd is going to go crazy for this book.

tumblr_nyc2uglCXX1sg1ksjo2_r1_500.gif


The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

This book will count for the challenge of read an LGBTQIA+ contemporary.

I am so excited for all of these books, but as soon as I heard about this readathon, I knew I’d be including this book. I can’t wait to get into it.

tumblr_okfegtCjt71qc7efmo1_540.gif


Beauty Pop by Kiyoko Arai

This will count for the challenge of read a contemporary not set in summer.

This takes place during the school year so not summer! At least that’s what I believe and I’m going to continue to during this readathon. I know things are different in Japan but I’m not doing my research because I want this to count!

tumblr_ntdz1uDKGH1udgnryo1_500.gif


Faster Than A Kiss by Tanaka Meca

51ulkoclvxL.jpg

This last manga will be for read a dark or taboo contemporary.

I’m going to go with a taboo romance manga. But I can’t decide so I let you guys vote! I had a poll on my Twitter back in mid-October and came up with one! This is a teacher/student romance and I’m 100% about it. Let’s do this.

tumblr_ntdsw6pP4F1udgnryo1_500.gif


I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo

This will be the book that I read for the challenge of read your most recently purchased/aquired contemporary.

I ended up getting this book with a gift card that I won in a giveaway and holy crap I’m excited for it. I can’t wait to read it.

tumblr_ojl5xmB04Y1u7yw0so1_540.gif


That’s it! Let’s hope I can get through a lot of these. Worst case, I just end up replacing a few books with more short manga.

Hope you enjoyed! Let me know what you plan on reading for Contemporaryathon!

Happy Reading! Bye!

So there’s that.

Well, let me know how many books you have on your TBR so I don’t feel so bad.

Don’t forget to like this post and follow me here and on Instagram for more bookish related photos.

Happy Reading! Bye!
