I love creating TBR lists. I get excited when I think about making a list of books to read, though I tend to go overboard and list more than I’m likely to complete. Not that it matters much, since I hardly ever read the books I include on my TBR list. I do try, but for some reason, after I list them, I don’t pick them up. My mood instead pushes me to consider other books.
Well, here I’m listing books I’ve already started, borrowed, or know, for sure, that I will, mos’ def, read in the coming months. I hope to get through a couple of them in the next few days since I’ll be going on a little trip, so things might be silent on here for a while if I’m unable to blog from where I will be. Anyways, the books:
Books I’ve started:
A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin
— I’m rereading it both as audio book and physical copy.
Thunder & Lightning: Weather Past, Present, Future by Lauren Redniss (illus.)
— I’m about halfway through it. Another good nonfiction book for those who’d like to read more nonfiction. It has illustrations. Don’t be intimidated by the large size. The illustrations take up a couple pages sometimes.
Air Awakens by Elise Kova
— I don’t know why I’m intrigued by this story. So far, it’s not great and I either dislike or don’t care for the characters. The writing also isn’t good but I suspect that this is probably the author’s first book. There’s something about the story that makes me keep returning to it though.
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
— So far, so good. I’m glad it’s back to being haunting and mystical. Oooowweeee….
Books I will start because they’re on hold at the library or because I’ll feel like reading it because it’s Halloween, winter, and I’m still thinking of summer and people hooking up:
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (audio book) and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (audio book)
— They’re on hold at the library and I’m next in line for Chamber of Secrets but whoever’s listening to it now is taking their sweet damn time doing so! I can’t hate, though, since I’m re-listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Jim Dale did a really good job with it.
Velvet, Vol. 3: The Man Who Stole the World by Ed Brubaker, illus. by Steve Epting
— I’ve been waiting for this for so long. So long!
Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind by Scott Barry Kaufman and Carolyn Gregoire
— A nonfiction book I started when doing the Try a Chapter Tag. I really want to return to it.
Wytches, Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder, illus. by Jock
Wayward, Vol. 1: String Theory by Jim Zub, illus. by Steven Cummings
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey
— These four are because it’s Halloween time and I’m trying to read more of my own shit.
Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Dracula by Bram Stoker, illus. by Becky Cloonan
— These three because I’ll probably want to read them instead of the first four above.
Unteachable by Leah Raeder
— I really want to reread it and remember summer and taboo romance.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman
— They seem great for winter.
Riverkeep by Martin Stewart
— Because the cover is pretty. Also, it’s probably fitting for Halloween.
I think that’s a good batch. I’ll also mix in some Robin Hobb books in there. Knowing myself, I won’t read all these and will choose something different but boy did I have fun creating this list!
That’s all that matters. I feel great! 😀
Reminder: I probably won’t interact much on here over the next couple days, so it will take a while for me to reply to comments or emails, if you sent one.
