I won’t lie, I’ve lost my blogging mojo. *sad face* In a bid to get it back, and to get away from my textbooks, I’m discussing my Spring 2019 TBR. I know that this was last week’s topic, buuuut I don’t listen to audiobooks and I was hoping that I could still join in on Top Ten Tuesday. Is that okay? Let’s go!
I was one of the many people who absolutely adored The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and I couldn’t resist picking up her new release, Daisy Jones and the Six. I have heard that the story is loosely based on the escapades of Fleetwood Mac and seeing as The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a 5* read for me I have the highest of expectations.
Whenever I hear of a new Keris Stainton book I pre-order immediately, and on release day I usually read her books within 48 hours. The fact that I haven’t yet read her latest release, The One Who’s Not The One, is a sure sign I am quite stressed out at the moment. Eeek. I can always rely on Keris for a fun and dare I say, sexy read, so I should make reading this a priority.
Not content with turning the world on its head with the Everyday Sexism project, Laura Bates has turned her talented hand to YA fiction, and her debut novel The Burning sounds truly mesmerising. I was just about to purchase a copy when I saw that my local library had a copy in – thank you, library! I’m counting down the days until it’s my turn. *taps foot impatiently*
I can never resist the hype when it comes to books, and a book I’ve been hearing a lot of hype around is The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. With its unique premise, I’m very much looking forward to diving into this heartwarming book.
Sometimes I Lie was a book that my manager recommended to me, and with its delicious twists and turns I gobbled it up within days. I couldn’t resist requesting a copy of Alice Feeney’s latest book. I Know Who You Are on Netgalley and I am already clearing my schedule in advance. I know that once I start, I won’t be able to put it down!
The Awkward series by Beth Garrod has to be one of my favourite series for teenagers, and I am so annoyed with myself for not reading Access All Awkward yet. It’s been on my bedside table for months! I am making it my personal mission to read Access All Awkward this Spring in readiness for Beth’s next novel, Take a Chance On Me. *squeals with excitement*
I am currently buddy reading Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus with the lovely Ellen from The Star Jar. Ellen must have the patience of a saint, as I am a terrible buddy reader. I am determined to finally finish reading this book so that Ellen can move on with her life. Seriously, I am the worst.
I may have already mentioned this in the past *looks to camera* but World War 2 history is a favourite topic of mine. I am particularly intrigued by the premise of The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe, as the story of Dita Kraus is one that I haven’t come across before. I am preparing myself for the inevitable tears.
My 12 years of waiting in Azkaban paid off, and it is now my turn to read Becoming by Michelle Obama from my local library. I’ll be honest, I’m intimidated by the size of it! I didn’t realise how long it was?! I should probably read this book as fast I can so that someone else on the library waiting list can enjoy it. I wonder if my manager will let me take a week off work?
Finally, another book I’ve had for quite some time is The Familiars by Stacey Halls. Witch trials in Northern England? Yes, please. This is another book that has been languishing on my shelves for weeks, pleading with me to read it. Soon, my pretty, soon.
What books are on your Spring 2019 TBR?
