As you can tell the TBR shelf has been rotated out! Some are still there from last month, specifically the feminist/women’s study type books like Birth of the Pill and Flow. In my efforts to read a good chunk of my print books, I did a count of the books that appear to be “fun reads.” Ones that appear to have not a very complex plot or wording. You won’t find any classics here (I’m looking at you James Joyce) or immersive historicals like Bringing Up the Bodies. Sometimes you want to just roll with the plot or the characters and not decipher’s metaphors. I could be wrong on a few of these, but when I do a pull like this, I try to trust my gut. I’m often gleefully surprised.
Some of the titles I’m looking forward:
- How to Start A Fire
- Under a Painted Sky (not pictured)
- Hammer Head
- The Anchoress
- Henna House
I really need to make sure I get to my library books this time. I’ve been bad the last few times and just renewing them until I can’t anymore then having to return them unread, but that feels like a whole different topic for later.
Are there any books on your TBR you’re hoping to get to this month? Any suggestions on my shelf that I didn’t mention that you think I’d really enjoy?
