July To Read Pile

It’s July! I can’t believe how fast this summer is going by. I say that weekly but really…it just keeps slipping away faster than I can keep up. I’ve actually been pretty good at keeping up with my reading list (mostly) but I’m behind on writing my reviews. I have about four to write. Now for the books I plan (hope) to read in July.

Physical ARCs:

A couple of these are for September. With how many books are releasing that month I figure I need to get a head start. I hope to squeeze in more than I have pictured but we’ll see. You notice Meridian is still there-I’ve not managed to read it yet even though it released in May. I’ve seen some less than stellar ratings and talk about it so I’m a tad nervous to start it. I loved Arclight (my review) so much I don’t want to be disappointed.  Prototype is the sequel to Archetype which I read last year. I enjoyed Archetype (my review) so was interested to see how the series concludes.

Electronic ARCs:

 The Fire Wish (The Jinni Wars, #1)The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1)

I’ve started both of these and so I shouldn’t have a problem finishing them.

So there you have it…my July to read pile. I really hope to add more than listed but we’ll see how I do this month. I am ahead in my Goodreads goal (by 3 books!) so I’m feeling pretty good about my reading pace.

Out of your next month’s to read list what book are you most looking forward to reading?

My June To Read Pile

It is June! So many incredible books are releasing this summer. I am really excited about the stack of books I have this month. I really do think creating this post keeps me on track with my reading and reviewing.

Here’s my pile:


I’m also going to be on the blog tour for Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen next month so I’ll be reading the e-arc this month as well.

Alias Hook

My break over BEA really got me on track with the amount of reviews I’ve got written and ready to go. I hope I can keep up being ahead of the game because it really makes for a less stressful blogging experience (I say this after a week maybe of experience).

This month look for reviews of Say What You Will, The Murder Complex, The Winner’s Curse (finally!!), The Immortal Crown and more. I promise the Lego cover of The Kiss of Deception will go live as well (maybe this weekend) and I have a couple discussion posts I’m hoping to do as well.

What books are you planning to read this month?

A Look at My To Read List

This might be more for me than my readers but I thought I’d share which books I have up and coming here at My Friends Are Fiction. I  (like everyone) am trying to be more organized and keep ahead with my posts. Fingers crossed that I can keep up this motivation and momentum. We are already half way through January and I haven’t made that big a dent in my reading list (only read 3 books so far–Fire & Flood, The Goddess Test and The Unbound). I would like to be able to read the following before the end of the month. Not sure that will be possible.

January To Reads:

Already Released:

 Scarlet (Scarlet #1)The Shadow Society

I am close to being finished with Scarlet and have loved it so much. Thank you to everyone that told me how wonderful this book is.


Lady Thief (Scarlet, #2)White Space (Dark Passages, #1)ArchetypeDangerous

I’m half way through Dangerous and I think I like it but am holding opinions until I see how Hale finishes the story.

Unless I get a lot more time to read I think it’s safe to say I won’t get to all of these by the end of the month. White Space might be moved to February.
