In February, I did a decent job with my TBR list? Not as great as I want it to be, but just plain ole decent.

For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. Is it effective? Perhaps. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.

Let’s discuss what I read last month, and what I’m reading this month!

Uhhh, it’s a new year, and I have yet to get back on the reading horse. I did get a couple of review books read, so I guess I can count that as a win! But yet, I am still behind. Will I ever get on the reading train?

My music in 2016 wasn’t as…plentiful like the previous years.

2015 was full of wonderful ladies, but 2016? I don’t even know how to define that year in music. I guess I can say it was just slow?

My 2016 was a mix of badassery ladies who make me want to slash tires and set things on fire, KPOP, soundtracks, some fave bands new releases, and old high school favorites that have me singing along.

Here are the albums I listened to. (It is in order of when I listened to them, and the links go to Spotify.)

GALAVANT | SEASON 1 + SEASON 2

Galavant

Galavant is a comedy musical television show that aired on ABC. The music of the series is composed by Alan Menken and Christopher Lennertz.

Galavant is frickin’ amazing. I didn’t know I would fall head over heels in love with this musical comedy, but I did. It’s not the cliche fairytale story with a dashing knight, a princess, and an evil king. It’s so much more than that. It’s funny, and it’s not afraid to poke fun at tired old tropes that you usually see in this genre. The music is so frickin’ catchy, and it never fails to put a smile on my face.

My Fave Songs: Galavant, Togetherness, Lords of the Sea, Love Is Strange,

too mch tbr january

I haven’t done a lot of reading the last couple of months. I’ve been in a terrible slump. No book interests me, and that sucks. That’s the reason why I didn’t post my December TBR because I didn’t feel like reading anything + I was preoccupied with work.

However, it’s a new year—2017 to be exact. Let’s hope I get back on the reading train, right?

Well, I’m gonna start this off by saying, whoops?

2016 has ended, and I don’t think I got any of my reading challenges and goals done. I stopped keeping track by May, and that’s the way life goes I guess. I always seem to forget other than the Goodreads challenge. Should I even set up 2017 goals? Might as well. I’ll keep it simple!

I haven’t been great at keeping with my TBR books this past month. (Blame that on all the stress! Ack.) Currently Reading will act as my check-in, letting you guys know what I’m forever reading at the moment, and what I’m enjoying about it. Today, I’m sharing with you three books I’m juggling/reading

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown.

If only it was that simple. Katharine is unable to tolerate the weakest poison, and Arsinoe, no matter how hard she tries, can’t make even a weed grow. The two queens have been shamefully faking their powers, taking care to keep each other, the island, and their powerful sister Mirabella none the wiser. But with alliances being formed, betrayals taking shape, and ruthless revenge haunting the queens’ every move, one thing is certain: the last queen standing might not be the strongest…but she may be the darkest.

Why did I want to read Three Dark Crowns? When I read that Three Dark Crowns was about three triplets—all queens in their rights—I thought about the daughters of Shakespeare’s King Lear and this beautiful image of three ladies from Dinara Mirtalipova. Since then, I can’t stop thinking about these two things. I like reading stories about sisters, and you had a fantastical element with a power struggle? I’d want to experience the unexpectedness and weirdness.

What do I like about it so far? That I don’t know how to feel about it? I just started the book, but it really throws me into what’s happening, not giving you a clue what I’ve stepped into. I imagine I will get to know all these characters as I keep reading. But you guys, one queen ingesting poison? Another being able to bloom flowers? Another being able to control the elementals? I hope the ??? I feel about the book turns into a definite opinion of like.
