5 Books from my TBR {January 2018}

I figured once a month I would randomly choose books to feature that are on my To Be Read List and see what you all think of them or if they’re on your TBR, too!

Since my TBR list is gigantic, I figured I’d choose one book from 5 different categories:

  • A book I own on Audible
  • A book I own on Kindle
  • A book on my bookshelf at home
  • A book from my TBR ASAP List on Goodreads
  • A book from my general TBR Shelf on Goodreads



Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

At 22 years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college; working a steady job; in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter; and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter’s cheating on her – and she is left trying to decide what to do next.
Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

I believe I found this during one of Audible’s awesome sales, but I still haven’t gotten around to reading it. I admit that after reading It Ends With Us, I’ve been a little scared to read this one. I feel like I may have to mentally prepare myself for this before I read it!

Bound by Duty (Bound #1) by Stormy Smith

Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she’s an Elder but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she’s betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and she doesn’t even know his name.
Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky Southern girl and to fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is and not what she’ll be.

As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head or her heart win the battle?

This was a freebie on Amazon and it had decent reviews on Goodreads. It sounded pretty interesting, so I downloaded it!

Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry #1) by Simone Elkeles

When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created ‘perfect’ life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she’s worked so hard for: her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.
Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

I found this entire series at my local used bookstore for around $1. I’m actually pretty excited to read this one, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward

It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days―until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn’t expect him to text back.
I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn’t expect to fall for him―all before we even met.
The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract―we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

I haven’t had much success in the past with Vi Keeland, but I wanted to give her another shot since her books are so popular.

The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti

Eighteen-year-old Indigo Skye feels like she has it all – a waitress job she loves, an adorable refrigerator-delivery-guy boyfriend, and a home life that’s slightly crazed but rich in love. Until a mysterious man at the restaurant leaves her a 2.5 million-dollar tip, and her life as she knew it is transformed.
At first its amazing: a hot new car, enormous flat-screen TV, and presents for everyone she cares about. She laughs off the warnings that money changes people, that they come to rely on what they have instead of who they are. Because it won’t happen…not to her. Or will it? What do you do when you can buy anything your heart desires — but what your heart desires can’t be bought?

This is the story of a girl who gets rich, gets lost, and ultimately finds her way back – if not to where she started, then to where she can start again.

Deb Caletti is one of those auto-read authors for me. I haven’t gotten through every book she’s ever written, but I’ve read most and have yet to come across one I didn’t like.

  1. Good books here, Bree! I love Deb Caletti (though I haven’t read this one). And Maybe Someday is on my Audible TBR too (favorite narrator alert)! But I have read Perfect Chemistry and Stuck Up Suit. I loved Perfect Chemistry so I can’t wait to read what you think of it. And I thought Stuck Up Suit was fun!

  2. I picked up Maybe Someday on my last trip to the library! Haha. I haven’t gotten to read it yet, but I’m almost done with my current book, so that one’s next. I don’t know what to expect since it’s the first book I’ll read by the author, but I’m in such a cheesy chick-lit/romance phase now, that I’ll read just about anything.
