#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR. Thank you E. for the awesome graphic for these posts as well!
New weekly book post! Thanks to E. at Local Bee Hunter’s Nook, I am joining #5OnMyTBR. E. has created prompts or you can just chat about some of the books on your TBR. I will probably do a mix of both because there are some genres/prompts I know I won’t have much to talk about. This week’s prompt is RomComs and I am already failing – if anyone saw my Instagram a few days ago, you’ll know I have been struggling to find any books on my shelves that I can read that are happy and funny. I like books that break my heart too much which is definitely not what I want right now. As I don’t have many romcoms on my TBR, I thought I’d talk about a couple of books I need to get read before April – I’m joining in with the OWLs readathon and so have a very strict TBR and need to get these books read before then.
Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn
This is one of my most anticipated books of the year, and I can’t wait to dig into this ARC! Not only does this have a stunning green cover, it’s set in the French Revolution (I am a complete sucker for books in this period), disaster queer rag tag team, bisexual love triangle, science and magic! Yes it really does sound that awesome. I can’t wait to start this one!
When You Get the Chance by Tom Ryan & Robin Stevenson
Road trip! Another ARC on my list of ‘must read these ASAP’ because I am running out of opportunity to read these before pub date. A YA contemporary about friendship and family, on a road trip to Toronto Pride. I read Ryan’s YA thriller Keep This to Yourself last year and whilst this one is sure to have completely different vibes, I’m looking forward to a fun, energetic read!
The Scapegracers by Hannah Abigail Clarke
This is the last ARC I promise! These are all early May releases and since I can’t read them during April as I will be very busy on OWLs readathon reads, I need to get it read like yesterday. This is another super exciting release, one of the many queer witch releases coming! This is a book described as ‘subverting the trope of competitive mean girls’ when outsider lesbian witch finds her coven with the popular girls at school.
This is How We Change the Ending by Vikki Wakefield
This is one of the gifts I received from my new work as a welcome package! Very excited to start, especially as it was longlisted for The Stella Prize, an award celebrating women’s writing in Australia. Nate is stuck in an abusive home, struggling to see how he can escape his upbringing. He writes all his thoughts in journals so he doesn’t scream them aloud, but then his journal goes missing and his words appear grafittied on the side of the local youth centre. This sounds like it’s going to be pretty emotional and I can’t wait to read it!
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
Ending this week’s 5 on my TBR with a book I’ve been meaning to read since it released in November last year. But this time I mean it! This book is a sneak peak at my OWLs readathon TBR – and I have to read this book, because it is the only book I own that fulfils the particular subject I’m sitting. (If this makes no sense but you’re intrigued, check out the OWLS readathon announcement here). After adoring The Night Circus (which I only read last year, because apparently I can’t ever read a hyped book when it releases), I’m excited to fall in love with another surprising, magical world created by Morgenstern.
That’s it for this week! I’m can’t wait to talk about all the books sitting on my TBR, I have so many and some I can’t really believe I haven’t read yet so maybe this will shame me into doing so. I hope everyone is staying safe, and make sure you do what you need to for your mental health.
One thought on “Five on my TBR”
SO MANY AMAZING BOOKS!! I loved The Starless Sea so much!! TT-TT. It was my first Morgenstern’s novel and I got to The Night Circus only after that but it was a masterpiece!! I hope you’ll enjoy it as well ❤
And I have The Scapegracers ARC as well! And, haha, I should probably read my ARCs because I'm So Behind 😅😅 Somebody force me, please…
I hope you're staying safe as well! Thank you for participating!! ❤
