As most of you know I suck at sticking to tbr list. Every year I set one and only read about 3 or 4 of them. It’s almost like my inner rebel is telling me to deviate from any tbr list I set. So, this year I’ve decided to narrow down my list and focus on the books I own. With luck, I might be able to tick one off by time summer rolls around.
1. Circe by Madeline Miller: I’ve had my eye on Madeline Miller’s books for a while now, and when I saw this book on sale for 0.99p at the Kindle book store, I knew I had to get it. I have always had an interest in mythology, and I love seeing authors put an original spin on these heroic figures. Even more so, I love it when they put the spotlight on those lesser figures, the ones who get relegated to the back. It gives them a chance to explore their significance and the depths of their character. I know plenty of people who adore The Song of Achilles, so hopefully, I can get to both at some point this year.
2. Beartown by Fredrik Backman: This has been on my priority list for a while now. So that everyone is clear, Ice Hockey is my favourite sport, not that I can play it. So, when I discovered this book, I knew I had to read it. Based on the reviews I’ve seen, I’m in for an emotional ride, but I am ready to embrace it.
3. Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Joy: This sounds like a contemporary book that I will definitely enjoy and sometimes you need those books that explore the developing relationship between two individuals.
4. Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGarry: Everyone knows how much I enjoy Katie McGarry’s books. Her characters are always flawed and complex but have great hearts. Only a Breath Apart sounds like a book I will undoubtedly love, especially with its second chance romance in what I’m sure will be an emotional rollercoaster.
5. Vengeful by V. E. Schwab: You all must be appalled to see this one still on my tbr list. I know, I have no excuse as to why I’ve not read this one yet, which is why it’s on the list. I cannot wait to meet up with Victor and Eli again and see what sort of chaos they create this time around.
Have you read any of these books?
