I think it’s safe to say Skam (Norwegian tv show i keep saying i’ll talk about here) has officially taken over all my time by this point. Luckily enough (no, not really) the show will be over by the end of the month (cries in Norwegian) after its fourth season.
However sad it really is to see the show ending, it may give me back all my free time. Now that’s a lot of time so i’ve been looking back at my tbr and i’ve been checking on all the reading i should have done but didn’t because watching Skam is a full-time job.
So, now that i’ll be back to my regular schedule, i’ll have time (or so i hope) to catch up with all those releases of the year i was planning on reading but didn’t because the Evak was too strong.
What are the books i’m planning on catching up with you ask? Well, … here are the books i’m looking forward the most to catch up with this year so far…
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I gotta admit i’m completely ashamed i haven’t got to this book yet. I’ve seen nothing but great reviews about this book and i started it when it got out but my head was too invested in other things at the moment… i was liking the writing style a lot, i remember and i cannot wait to go back to it. I think this will be one of the first books i’ll be catching up with these months.
Noteworthy by Riley Redgate
I received an e-copy of this book for reviewing back at the beginning of the year and still, i haven’t put myself to the task of reading it yet… i’m looking forward to reading the book, though, because it sounds as so much fun.
The Upside Of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
I cannot believe i haven’t read this book yet, okay?? like, i remember reading Becky’s first book ‘Simon and the homo sapiens agenda’ the day it was released and devouring the book because it was so much fun and fluff and it was amazing… so how did i not read it the moment it came out? Great question… i heard it is not as good as the previous one, but i’ll be deciding it for myself as i read it asap.
Scar Island by Dan Gemeinhart
If i recall it right, i heard about this book in one of JesseTheReader‘s videos… it sounded really interesting when he was talking about it, so i decided to give it a change.. obviously, i haven’t yet, but i’ll be working my way to it in the next few months for sure!
The Inexplicable Logic Of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz
I’d been looking forward to reading this book for a very long time, since i really loved ‘Aristotle&Dante discover the secrets of the universe’ which by the way, if you haven’t read it yet, it’s a beautiful book… but then when the book came out i read some harsh reviews and it made me step back for a while… now i’m thinking of giving my own opinion on the book, and for that i need to read it myself, obviously… so yeah…i’ll be reading the book when the time is right.
Release by Patrick Ness
In the last year or so, Patrick Ness has become one of my must-read any books by the author… so it’s not a surprise i’m planning on reading this one… I didn’t know it was released in May so it’s not like i was pushing it aside, i just forgot it was coming out already.. anyway, i want to catch up with this one asap, because i totally love the way Ness writes, so i cannot wait to have this book in my hands.
Nowhere Near You by Leah Thomas
I was really looking forward for this book to be released since the very moment i finished reading the first one, ‘Because You’ll Never Meet Me’ so i really don’t know why i haven’t got to this one yet… i really don’t understand what happened… well, i do understand… Norwegian teenage-tv drama happened.. but i’m really wanting to read this book, because i remember really liking the characters so i’m really happy to be going back and meeting them again.
Oh well, wish me luck with all the catching up i gotta do because it’s not only these books that are waiting on me… I have so many books o my tbr at the moment!!!
’til next time
