Here’s some of the books that are on my current TBR!
I like to keep books that are at the very top of my TBR (‘to be read’ list) on my desk. This was made easier when I was given these lovely bookends that say ‘SO MANY BOOKS. SO LITTLE TIME’ for my birthday. On my desk at the moment, I have a few that I’ve borrowed from friends: We All Looked Up, My Heart and Other Black Holes, Friends With Boys and Cowgirl. I’ll be reading Friends With Boys first because I’m in the mood for a quick read. I borrowed this contemporary YA graphic novel from Debbie a few months ago! I’ll also pick up We All Looked Up, as it’s our next book club book.
I aimed to read only adult books in March, but I didn’t get to read as many as I hoped, so I’ve still got Life After Life and The Miniaturist left. I also bought All the Light We Cannot See this week. I want to get to this soon because I’ve been looking for it for a while, but I couldn’t find the edition I wanted – it’s just been published in the usual paperback size, so I snapped it up. I also bought Only Ever Yours because it recently won the YA Book Prize and it was one of the few books I didn’t already own!
I was also sent Patrick Ness’ new book, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, and so of course it went straight on the ‘to read soon’ pile. And lastly, I’ll be reading The Yellow-Wall Paper for the 2015 Classics Challenge. It’s my April classic and so I’m a little behind, but I’ll catch up!
I’ve also tried to make sure I don’t forget about the books sitting on my Kindle! I’ve picked out a bunch of books that I acquired from NetGalley that I want to read and review soon, so I can work on being a Good Blogger. I’m so excited to read all of the books I’ve chosen, so I’m not too sure which one I’m going to read next. The Girl on the Train was one of the adult books I was going to read in March and I’m desperate to see how it’s sold two million copies around the world already.
I’m looking forward to getting stuck into the high standard of YA published this year, particularly Simons vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, The Last Leaves Falling, All the Bright Places and The Accident Season. I downloaded The DUFF because it’s recently been adapted and I really, really must read Half Bad so I can see what everyone’s been talking about!
Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you thought! Which books should I read first?
