Weekly TBR Vlog | July 28

I am having so much fun making these vlogs, my friends even though I totally had to kick Tony out of the room. Actually, he exiled himself downstairs for the filming of this video, but at least he wasn’t gone long — the video is only 3:25. Holla, short vlogs are my new favorite! ALSO! New talent of mine? I managed to add in one more book than I had last week and the video is shorter than last week’s. Even better? I am posting it ON TIME. If only there were all the GIFs to express my excitement. Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Did you like them… or not? Let me know!

On my TBR pile for the week of July 28:

Burn For Burn by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han – I decided I needed to read this sooner rather than later because Anime June wrote a superb review and I am feeling the guilt from having a copy of the sequel in my pile. (Goodreads)

Jane Austen Goes To Hollywood by Abby McDonald – Contemporary retelling of Sense & Sensability? HELL YES. Cannot wait to devour this gem. (Goodreads)

Crown Of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas – One of my most anticipated summer reads and straight up I am all about the epic fantasy! (Goodreads)

OCD, The Dude, And Me by Lauren Roedy Vaughn – Yay journals! Also, I need to watch The Big Lebowski, I’ve never seen it! (Goodreads)

Hemlockby Kathleen Peacock – I still like paranormal and werewolves and this has been on my TBR for way too long. (Goodreads)

Enthralled edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong – This is more of a long term read, as I plan to read a short story a day and gradually type the review as I go along. (Goodreads)


About April (Books&Wine)

April is in her 30s and created Good Books And Good Wine. She works for a non-profit. April always has a book on hand. In her free time she can be found binge watching The Office with her husband and toddler, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring her neighborhood.


  1. I just ordered a copy of Crown of Midnight today (of course, I had to buy the UK edition to match my ToG.) I’m so excited to know I’m not the only one who is unsure of those names – though that’s exactly how I say them too!

    The only book you listed that I’ve read is Hemlock, which I wasn’t really a fan of. I felt like I got dropped into the middle of a series and not the first book. I hope it fares better for you!

    • I am glad I say the names like at least one other person, so if I am wrong, we can be wrong together.

      Awww, I am sad that Hemlock wasn’t very good for you. Sometimes I am okay with the dropped in feeling, so who knows!

  2. Hemlock! I won a signed copy of that a while ago and still need to read it! I’ve heard it’s quite awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy your reads!

  3. Whaaaaaaaaa? A Jane Austen retelling I haven’t heard of?! OMG, so looking into this.
    Also, I hardly ever get excited about contemporary, but I definitely want to get my hands on Burn for Burn. Can’t wait for that one! =D

  4. I have a complete and consuming fascination with the Throne of Glass series so it’s no surprise to me that I am barely hanging onto my fangirl pants over the mention in your video. I BEG OF YOU: read it SOON!! It’s incredible, even, I daresay, more incredible than it’s glorious predecessor. Hemlock is also a pretty good read and I can’t wait to read what you think on OCD and ENTHRALLED! I wise you success on your tbr-ific journey this week ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Basically, ALL of these books! Can’t wait to see what you think of Crown of Midnight and Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood. Burn for Burn sounds really good too and I’ve been meaning to get it but…yeah.

  6. I’ve been meaning to read Hemlock – but I haven’t been in a paranormal mood much lately.

    I was ALMOSTTHISCLOSE to being interested in that Jane Austen retelling, but…S&S is my least favorite, so…eh. I’ll wait and see if you love it.

  7. I’ve been meaning to read Hemlock for ages. I keep thinking about how I want to read it, but other books keep getting all the attention.

    OCD, the Dude, and Me is really good. I haven’t seen The Big Lebowski, but I was able to understand what was going on. But I think it would have been beneficial if I had seen the movie. Also, since I’ve read the book, I’ve wanted to see the movie.

    Anyway, I hope you have a good reading week.
