After the success of last month, I’m going to challenge myself again with by TBR this month. I also want to read a more varied range of genres, as I have been reading a lot of fantasy lately and though I adore it, I feel like I should branch out a bit.
June is also Pride month, so I hope to read books that have some LGBT rep.
Good Bones by Margaret Atwood – This is a selection of short stories. After reading The Handmaid’s Tale (read full review here) at the end of April, I found myself longing to return to Atwood’s writing. I’ve already started this and I love it already. The stories have a really unique take on feminism and the role of women both in life and literature.
This Savage Song by V.E Schwab – I managed to grab a copy of Our Dark Duet yesterday, a whole 10 days before it’s official release date, so now I can binge read them both! I’ve been holding off reading this one for a whole year just so that I wouldn’t have to wait for the sequel…
History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera – I’m really looking forward to reading this one, and lucky enough to be meeting Adam Silvera at an event in Waterstones Piccadilly in just a few days!
Who Runs The World? by Virginia Bergin – GIRL POWER! This sounds great (Though I’ve seen very mixed reviews on GR…) and is The Green Room’s (YA Book Group) pick for this month.
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol – This has been on my TBR for 3 consecutive months now… will I ever pick it up..?
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – It’s time to crack out the cute summer contemporaries! Starting with this bundle of cuteness. I’ve heard so many wonderful things, and I can’t wait to get stuck into it.
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – I have so many contemporaries that have been neglected on my reading list for so long. This was one of them! I finally bought this with my birthday book voucher, so now I can actually read it!
Yet another ambitious month… 1 book longer than last month’s TBR, and 2 more books than I actually managed last month. These are, however, considerably shorter, so I think I can make it happen!
Wish me luck!
