January’s New Books! (Aka my Goodreads wish list for the month)

Hellooooo and welcome to our first blogging week of January =D This panda is really glad that 2016 is over and I hope everyone’s lives get better in 2017!

We’re gathered here today for my monthly wishlist based on Goodreads’ popular book releases list and on what I have on my shelves over there =) I accept donations in case someone wants to gift me with any of those books LMAO #justkidding #ormaybenot #Ilovegifts #butwhodoesn’t?

Ps: you’ll notice some big authors weren’t featured on this post despite having new releases on January, but that is because I wasn’t impressed with their books? Sorry :/

Genre: YA Fantasy

Comments: I’d like to challenge all the readers in the world for a duel if they never wished to be inside a book =) #justsaying #Iwanttoliveinsideallmypages

  • Freeks , by Amanda Hocking


Genre: YA Fantasy

Comments: what can I say? Freakish teens, a carnival, supernatural happenings = I’M IN.


  • Off Base, by Annabeth Albert (Out of Uniform #1)


Genre: M/M Military Romance

Comments: I’m so proud of society for finding a gay romance among Goodreads’ most popular anticipated releases I also did find a cute Lesbian romance, but it was too dramatic for my panda sensibilities, unfortunately =(

  • The Riper’s Shadow, by Laura Joh Rowland (Victorian Mystery #1)


Genre: Historical Fiction / Mystery

Comments: dark mystery + 19th century + England + Jack The Ripper?  = MYSELF ALL OVER THE PLACE!

  • You Don’t Know My Name, by Kristen Orlando (The Black Angel Chronicles #1)


Genre: YA Contemporary

Comments: I’ve read about this book at someone’s blog BUT I CAN’T FOR THE LIFE OF ME LOCATE WHERE IT WAS OMG – it also doesn’t help that I have been using three diferente computers on the last two weeks, so I don’t even know where to make a search, ugh. Anyway, it sounds awesome, I assure you, haha!

DAY 17

  • Indelible, by Adelia Saunders


Genre: Contemporary Romance / Urban Fantasy (if you ask me)

Comments: I’m actually writing a book (shhh, it’s a secret!) and one of my characters is actually a body reader – not quite the concept of this book, but somewhere close. I think it will be a fabulous reading and provide me with some researching material at the same time, haha!

DAY 20

  • Blood of Wonderland (Queen of Hearts Saga #2), by Colleen Oakes


Genre: YA Fantasy / Retelling

Comments: Alice in Wonderland + Retelling + Fantasy + Blood = I’M IN AGAIN!

  • By Your Side, from Kasie West


Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Comments: I’m REALLY PICKY with my contemporary romances, but this book has all the elements to make me swoon: the problematic guy at school, locking at a library for days, books and social high school worries, haha!

  • Caraval, by Stephanie Garber


Genre: YA Fantasy

Comments: I wasn’t interested in this book when I first heard of it. But then my lovely Beth, at the Betwixt The Pages, started to list her reasons why she wanted it and I was sold, haha!

  • Dark Side of the Rainbow, by Danielle Paige (Dorothy Must Die 0.8)

  1. That cover for The Book Jumper!! I just love it. I remember seeing a fellow blogger review it, but I cannot remember who, but I do know they really enjoyed it. I also have Caraval on my TBR as well. I have a feeling it is going to be a hot read this year 🙂

  2. Yay so glad you want to read Behind Her Eyes! It’s soooo good. I can’t wait to talk about the ending!! And I’m also glad to see you want to read Caraval, because I am desperate to read it. Maybe we can restart book club and make it a buddy read 😛 xxx
