#TBRathon TBR

The #TBRathon runs from May 27th to June 3rd and is hosted by Taryn over at @sunlitlibrary on Twitter.

Here are the books I am planning on reading! (Many of these I am already halfway through so that is why there are so many on my TBR. In addition, this is the list of books that I am choosing from, I will not necessary get to them all.)

The Inexplicable Logic of my Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz 
I loved Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, so I am on board for this one. 
Spill Zone by Scott Westerfeld
I was not a fan of Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series, but I am willing to give this graphic novel a try.
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
I am about 20% into this, and I am loving it so far. So cute, and exactly what I was looking for in a contemporary. 
The Half-Life of Molly Pierce by Katrina Leno
I am a little ways into this and it is incredibly strange, and I have no idea where it is going--I'm excited.


Far From You by Tess Sharpe
I am a little ways into this one, and I have a good feeling about it. I think this is going to be a powerful story. 
Descender Volume One by Jeff Lemire
All I know about this one is that it involves robots, so I am all in for that. Also, this one has a very high Goodreads rating!
Tales from Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare
I have read about 200 pages of this, and I am really enjoying it. I always have a hard time with short stories, but I am hoping I can get through this quickly so that I can FINALLY read Lady Midnight.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
This one has intrigued me since it came out, plus I have an eARC of the second one in this series that I really want to get to.  


Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly
This one looks like a super cute middle grade novel, and I am very excited to pick it up.
Jonesy Volume One by Sam Humphries
"A sarcastic teenager with the powers of cupid unleashes her preternatural matchmaking abilities on her school with hilarious and charming results." --I don't need to know anymore than that. 


These last three books are ones that I have wanted to read for SO long. I am putting these on here in hopes that I can finally get around to them.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
I just really want to read Six of Crows, but I feel obligated to read the whole series. Plus, I have been hearing amazing this about this series for years. 
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
I have been wanting to read something by Victoria Schwab for so long, plus the second book is coming out in June.
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokski
I do not think I have read a negative review of this one.

Top 2016 Releases I NEED to Read

If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
This book has been on so many book lists for the Top Books of 2016. This is a YA LGBT+ romance that I have heard nothing but amazing things about! I can't wait to pick this one up.

Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
I loved David Arnold's first book Mosquitoland, so I am so excited about diving into this one. I absolutely love the synopsis for this book because it doesn't give away a lot about the story, but it is enough to hook the reader.

1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.
12. Falling in love with a song.
13. Falling in love.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake 
This is another release that I have heard amazing things about. This is a YA fantasy following three sisters who must fight against each other to be Queen.

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
What first attracted me to this book was this amazing cover! This is a YA fantasy that has a diverse cast of characters which makes me so excited to read this.

Holding up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
One of my all time favorite books is All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. I absolutely have to pick this book up soon, but I want to savor it as well.

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi 
This is another YA fantasy with diverse characters that I just NEED to read.
