Blogmas Day 15 - My Christmas TBR

Leave a Comment

Hiya Everyone, I thought today as it ten days to the big day and half way through the month, I thought I would share with you all my Christmas TBR. Enjoy !

1. Girl Online - Zoe Sugg

 Penny has a secret. Under the alias Girl Online, 
Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, high school drama, her crazy family, and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets Noah, a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly Penny is falling in love - and capturing every moment of it on her blog. But Noah has a secret, too, one that threatens to ruin Penny's cover - and her closest friendship - forever. 

(Yes I know the controversy about this book, but regardless of who wrote it, I am interested in the story, which is the only reason I would ever read a book)

2. Howl's Moving Castle - Diana Wynne Jones

 In the land of Ingary, where seven league boots and cloaks of invisibility do exist, Sophie Hatter catches the unwelcome attention of the Witch of the Waste and is put under a spell. Deciding she has nothing more to lose, she makes her way to the moving castle that hovers on the hills above Market Chipping. But the castle belongs to the dreaded Wizard Howl whose appetite, they say, is satisfied only by the souls of young girls...There she meets Michael, Howl's apprentice, and Calcifer the Fire Demon, with whom she agrees a pact. But Sophie isn't the only one under a curse - her entanglements with Calcifer, Howl, and Michael, and her quest to break her curse is both gripping - and howlingly funny!

(Half way through this already and really want to finish it, love the studio ghibli film!)

3. A Song of Ice and Fire Series - George R.R. Martin                           A GAME OF THRONES is the first volume in the 
series. Summers span decades. Winter can last 
a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne 
has begun. As Warden of the north, Lord 
Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert 
bestows on him the office of the Hand. His 
honour weighs him down at court where a true 
man does what he will, not what he must ...and a 
dead enemy is a thing of beauty. The old gods 
have no power in the south, Stark's family is split 
and there is treachery at court. Worse, the 
vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon 
King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free 
Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.

(Im getting the full series for Christmas sohopefully 
I will be marathoning these books)

4. Panic - Lauren Oliver

 Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town 
of twelve thousand people in the middle of nowhere: 
because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do. 
Heather never thought she would compete in panic, a 
legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the 
stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She'd never 
thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would 
fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and 
someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver 
than she ever thought. Dodge has never been afraid of 
panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way 
through the game; he's sure of it. But what he doesn't know 
is that he's not the only one with a secret. Everyone has 
something to play for. For Heather and Dodge, the game 
will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the 
possibility of first love for each of them - and the knowledge 
that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need 
the most. In this gritty, spellbinding novel, bestselling author 
Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping narrative of friendship, 
courage, survival, and hope.

5. A Great and Terrible Beauty - Libba Bray 

It's 1895, and after the death of her mother, 16-year-old 
Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in 
India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. 
Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future 
that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, 
Gemma's reception there is a chilly one. To make things 
worse, she's being followed by a mysterious young 
Indian man, a man sent to watch her. But why? What is 
her destiny? And what will her entanglement with 
Spence's most powerful girls - and their foray into the 
spiritual world - lead to?

Those books are my Christmas TBR, please tell in the
