Holiday Goals! |A Reading List & A Sneak Peek At Something *Special*

Greetings readers!

I really found no point in doing a November Wrap-Up, since I literally crossed nothing off that list and to do a December TBR was also really pointless since the month is almost over….so I created a HOLIDAY TBR! Which is a mash-up of December and January goals!

Who knows if I will actually achieve them…but I am really hoping to do a lot of reading and blogging these next two weeks!

Let’s Get Into It!

Holiday TBR

Renegades by Marissa Meyer

This one is obvious. I have been waiting to pick it up since it came to my door step, but I set it aside so I could really enjoy it! I know there have been some mixed reviews around it, but I’m keeping the most open mind as possible. This is, after all, a book by my Queen.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

A) I haven’t read it and I have had it since AUGUST! B) Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu comes out this January and even though I don’t need to read WW:W before I read this, I am a stickler for reading things in order!

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

I have had this book for too long to not pick it up… I really need to get to it!

Last Star Burning by Caitlin Sangster

It’s a signed ARC that I won in a Haiku contest which really had nothing to do with the book, but the synopsis sounds really cool so I want to read it. Plus the cover is winter-y and it’s winter…so it’s fitting.

The ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas

I’m really not in the mood to read SJM, but I should. It’s not mandatory on my list, perhaps just the first book to simply get it out of the way….because those other books take priority!

I also have some review books that I need to get through that I am super excited for!!!!

Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking


This is the first Blog Tour I will be participating in! I’m very excited. The book sounds incredible and I hope I really enjoy it! You can catch my post on January 3rd so be sure to watch this space!!!

S.T.A.G.S by M.A. Bennett

This sounds incredibly intense and suspenseful and I am all for this!!!!!!

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

Hocus Pocus meets Practical Magic meets the Salem Witch trials.
Y.E.S. I. A.M. R.E.A.D.Y. F.O.R. T.H.I.S.  I am so lucky I got my hands on an ARC, I have high hopes for this! High hopes!!

Captain Guinevere by Clara Bennet

I have also had a hold of this one for a while. It sounds very cool, it’s short and I cannot wait to read it!

Some Other Holiday Things….

I have been up to some stuff since the summer! Some artsy stuff. That has to do with my favourite fandoms. Like The Lunar Chronicles and The Beautiful Ones. I also have some plans for Six of Crows, Tower of Dawn, The Winner’s Trilogy and An Ember in the Ashes!

I have already started some TLC and Beautiful Ones work done! I cannot wait too show you the finished products. But for now he is a little teaser….


Can you guess who???

And here is one for The Beautiful Ones


Eeeekk! I’m excited!

Hopefully I get a few done in these next two weeks to show them off!!

Let me know what you think? What do you have planned for this Holiday season? Any special reads? Have you ever done some special for your favourite fandoms? 

Happy reading!

  2. I think all of the books on your TBR are also on mine…although they will take me a lot longer to get to. I have read the ACOTAR series and while looking back now, I’m not overly impressed with ACOTAR, I loved ACOMAF and really enjoyed ACOWAR (although I had a few tiny issues with it). Good luck reading!

  3. ooooooooh, I’m so excited, Rendz!! Those little sneak previews have me so pumped. The TLC ones look STUNNING. So realistic, and totally wonderful. Can’t wait to see the full picture because I’m sure they’re going to be as amazing as the sneak peeks.

    Also, this TBR sounds FANTASTIC. I can’t wait to see your thoughts on WW and Renegades. And the Wicked Deep has been so highly anticipated for me, since I spotted it on your TBR a while back. And sometimes you just really just have to be in the mood for ACOTAR. Wonderful post! ❤

    1. Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuu!!! Those three that I teased from TLC are now complete and I’m working on the next six. (Gosh there are so many TLC characters XD)
      A Renegades review will be coming soon and I shall hopefully be picking up WW and The Wicked Deep sometime in January!
      I think I have had my fix of SJM for this year, I’ll give it a while before I find the need to read her other series 🙂
