Kori's January TBR
Many like to mark this day by making resolutions or intentions, or even selecting a word of the year. Today, I thought we’d go over some books I intend to read this month. While I like to plan out my reading list for the month, I tend to be a mood reader. I have a big stack of books by my desk that I feel drawn to, though absolutely not enough time to finish.
The books I know I'll be reading this month include . . .
With the release of A Court of Silver Flames just around the river bend, I am impatient to revisit Prythian and all its lovely (and horrid) inhabitants. While I emit more of an Elain vibe (fun fact, my father wanted my middle name to be Elain!) I love Nesta and Cassian both so much. Her character arc is one I am really excited about; it's sure to be a fiery enemies-to-lovers as my favorite bat boi teases and pesters Nesta into finally confronting her trauma, as well as her new identity as High Fey and the power that comes with it.
In case you don't follow us on bookstagram, I got The Tarot Lady's latest book as a Christmas gift from my honey. This book is, at its core, a tool to help you connect with and strengthen your intuition so you can become a better tarot reader—no matter what stage you're at. As a fan of Reed's daily morning Instagram show, Tarot, Transits, and Tangents, I'm already familiar with her voice, and I know this will be a humorous, digestible guide that makes learning enjoyable.
Some other titles I may check out this month include:
We've been playing a game of cat-and-mouse, this book and I. It grabbed my eye a while back, but the struggle of a never-ending TBR list has kept me from actually getting to it.
I read this one a few years back and just never got around to reading the rest of the trilogy. However, lately I’ve been in the mood for something dark, and the circus vibe of this world is calling me back. It’s been long enough that I look forward to re-experiencing Scarlett & Tella’s first adventure.
I started this one while on a road trip a while back, but set it aside once Norsevember kicked off. What I read was very interesting, and I am confident I will enjoy the rest of it.
This book came as a surprise with my premium curbside experience with my local library—the librarians pull ten extra books from the shelves based on my holds and requests, then send them home with me when I pick up my holds. It’s like getting a present every time I go! Or like life and a box of chocolates . . .
I've had this one on my list for a couple years now, but because I've heard such a wide range of mixed reviews, I kept pushing it back. I did try reading the first couple chapters, but I was having a hard time liking the protagonist, and there were a few things that bugged me. As a fan of The Labyrinth, I really want to read this book—and love it—but I'm also afraid of disappointment.
That’s all I’ve got for this month! I can’t wait to check out these titles and review them for you all! What books are on your January TBR? Have you read any on this list? If so, let me know what you thought in the comments! You just might influence what I read this month!
