It’s the first of November, and there is snow on the ground. There has been since yesterday, and I am both cold and unhappy about this. What I am happy about, though, is that cold weather is great for reading inside, curled up under a blanket…and that I have a great TBR this month.
I’m participating in a TBR Jar event this month with a group called We Be Book’n. The goal is to cut down on your existing TBR by having someone else pick the books from your list for you. I asked my partner to choose 8 books for me, from a much longer list, and these are the ones she selected:
- The Astonishing Color of After
- Eliza and Her Monsters
- The Tenth Girl
- A Curse So Dark and Lonely
- The Cruel Prince
- American Born Chinese
We actually both had Eliza and Her Monsters on our lists, so we are both reading it so we can discuss. In addition to those, I have a couple books that I added to the list because I either really want to or really need to read them this month:
- Darkdawn (yes, I procrastinated so long on this one)
- This Is Going to Hurt (ARC)
- Reverie (ARC)
The order of these books will be determined totally at random by picking out of a jar, per the event rules. The first title I drew was Watchmen, so I will be starting the month out with a graphic novel!
Finally, a quick apology: I know I’ve been a little MIA, with only two posts in the past week. It has been a tad stressful, now that I have my LSAT scores back and am actually working on my law school applications, AND I’m finally getting more info about my upcoming heart surgery, which means big-time stress. Hopefully I’ll be back to a normal posting schedule soon!
How many of these have you read? Thoughts on any of them? And do you have a TBR for this month? Let me know!
