Sarah the Unresponsible Bookworm

Okay hi what’s up guys, today I’m sharing my deepest darkest guilt: ALL THE AMAZING BOOKS I HAVE NOT READ. “FAINTING COUCH PLEASE.” What, that’s not weird that I made up an imaginary butler. Is it?? *faints dramatically* How…Sarah! I may not have a real butler now, but SOMEDAY I will along with Belle’s library. #notgonnahappen #youcanstilldream #dreamoonchild

So I plan to read these books before the end of the summer! Currently I’m reading ACOTAR which is AMAZING so far, except that I left it at my friend’s house this morning and I literally want to die. *SOB* THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US. Oh yes and I just finished All the Bright Places, so yay that was good. “We are all alone, trapped in these bodies and our own minds, and whatever company we have in this life is only fleeting and superficial.” *SOBS MULTIPLY BY TEN*  AND THEN TO MAKE EVERYTHING WORSE, my friend also decided to leave her copy of Every Last Word in my bag that I was bringing home so the temptation to read it IS UNBEARABLE AHHHH.

A Darker Shade of Magic

Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, traveling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.

Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they’ll never see. It’s a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.

Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they’ll first need to stay alive.

The Hate U Give

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

Six of Crows

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.

In Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere. Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

The Westing Game

A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing’s will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger—and a possible murderer—to inherit his vast fortune, on things for sure: Sam Westing may be dead…but that won’t stop him from playing one last game!


Kyla’s memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost forever. She’s been slated. The government claims that she was a terrorist and they are giving her a second chance—if she plays by their rules. But scenes from the past haunt her as she tries to adjust to a new life, family, and school, leaving her unsettled. Who is she really? And if only criminals are meant to be slated, why are so many other teens disappearing? As she and her friend Ben seek answers, Kyla is torn between the need to know more and her instinct for self-preservation.


What books are at the top of your tbr?

  1. You should absolutely get to those first three books as soon as possible! I’ve read and LOVED all of them! To be honest with you, I have no idea what I’m going to read next and I don’t really have a list of books to get to this summer though I KNOW I want to get my hands on Wonder Woman: Warbringer as quickly as possible! I need new reading material from Leigh!

  2. We’ve read Slated – we like both the first and second but we didn’t really like the ending in the third book (felt incomplete..?)… If memory serves us right anyways!😅

    Great post – not so great on not reading these books! Though we’re not so good ourselves – still have SoC and THUG to read FIRST..and then the others of course…

  3. The books in your must must read list must be read as soon as physically possible because they are absolutely amazing!! Six of Crows especially, how have you not read SoC yet! Top of my tbr right now is the Grisha trilogy. I’m rereading Six of Crows and I just want to spend as much time in the Grishaverse as possible. The first time I tried Shadow and Bone, I couldn’t get through the first chapter so I hope I have better luck this time around.

  4. Your posts are always so fun to read. 🙂 But I feel a little guilty because I’ve only heard of a couple of the books you mentioned…
    Right now, the books at the top of my TBR are a few classics (Pride &a Prejudice and Jane Eyre), but I keep putting off reading them for some reason. I’ll get there!😉

    • Aw thanks Olivia!! Ooh yes I need to read Pride & Prejudice too, but at the top of my tar for classics is probably…A Monster Calls! I have the same problem; I ALWAYS PUT OFF CLASSICS. They’re like my last resort but MAYBE SARAH IF YOU READ MORE THAN 3 OF THEM IN YOUR LIFE YOU MIGHT LIKE THEM. When 2/3 were required for school…eek hahahaha. Oh and I’ve been meaning to ask you if you have a button for your blog? I wanted to put it on my friends page under about on my website!

      • Haha, me too! When I do get through one, it’s my new favorite book, though.

        I don’t have a blog button! 😦 I really need to get on that task. I’m not a techy person at all, so trying to make one always scares me off..that reminds me, I need to put your blog button on my blog! Right now I just have the link to your blog on my friends page. Thanks for asking, means a lot! I’ll let you know when I get one finally done!

  5. WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE GO READ SIX OF CROWS RIGHT NOW!!! ADSOM was slow for me but still very good and ACOL just left me in a mess of feels. AND YES THUG!!! I bought it for my friend with my own money instead of for myself and I’m sad. 😥 Haha, are Slated and The Westing Game from our collab? 😛 I also have to read Fangirl as well!

  6. I like how you narrowed down the books and I have to agree with the MUST and MUST read because those books are actually really great read 🙂 Fangirl is not really my favorite and I don’t know the other books so if you haven’t read any Kasie West’s books, I would recommend checking out her books. 🙂 Enjoy your reads!! (and I definitely know how that feels to have forgotten a book at a friend’s house when you are currently reading it.. *taking a deep breath*)

  8. I am currently going through my 300-something unread emails and checking out all the posts I’ve missed AND YOURS POPPED UP AND I WAS LIKE GIRL. ME TOO. ALL YOUR MUST MUST READS ARE /LITERALLY/ MY MUST MUST READS. Let’t not even talk about how long Six of Crows has been on my TBR… honestly, it’s quite embarrassing. BUT NEXT MONTH. I’LL DEFINITELY READ IT NEXT MONTH. PINKY PROMISE.

    AND THUG. Omg I’ve been raving about it for months and I told myself I’d read it as soon as it came out……. but guess what. I DID NO SUCH THING. And I was never really interested in ADSOM because there wasn’t AS much hype around it (or so I thought). Because then I created my blog AND PEOPLE JSUT WOULDN’T SHUT UP ABOUT IT AND I SEE IT IN EVERYONE’S BLOG POSTS and so I caved. And I bought the book like last week. It’ll probably be a while until I read it (and the other 2 must must reads) BUT STILL. AT LEAST I OWN ALL 3 OF THEM. RIGHT?! XD
