Here are my March TBR possibilities!
This month’s stack is evenly balanced between challenge books and new releases. I’m about a 3/4 of the way through Daisy Jones and the Six and I’m LOVING it! It’s about the band’s rise to fame and the truth about their abrupt breakup. The book’s format is really unique- it’s an undisclosed amount of time in the future and the bandmates are being interviewed, so we get to hear all sides of the story. I already feel a book hangover coming on- if you like classic rock at all, you have to pick this one up.
I’m linking up with Literary Quicksand, Rachel at Never Enough Novels, and Allison at My Novel Life -the co-hosts of TBR (To Be Read) Mix ‘n Mingle. The first Wednesday of each month they share the books they’re planning to read for the month.
I have been steadily adding to my TBR list. I get the bulk of my inspiration from #bookstagram (occupational hazard) but also from podcasts, publishers, and people that I know in real life. I love when people reach out to me to tell me what they’re reading or to tell me what they felt about a book that I recommended- it’s the best! Here are some of the latest additions to my list.
Black Leopard Red Wolf | Marlon James | Lets be honest. I saw the cover and thought it was beautiful, but @read_by_rodkelly is the reason I put it on my list. (He gives great recs). Black Leopard Red Wolf is being called the African Game of Thrones, and this reader doesn’t need much more than that.
Tell the Wolves I’m Home | Carol Rifka Brunt | This was one of Ashley Spivey’s “loves” picks from her episode on the Sarah’s Book Shelves Live podcast. She said it would go well with two of my favorite books of all time, The Hearts Invisible Furies and A Little Life, so of course I have to read it!
The Girl He Used to Know | Tracy Garvis Graves | Cant remember where I first heard about this rec, but I love stories that explore the “what might have been”.
The Atlas of Reds and Blues | Devi Laskar | Rec from All the Books and Liberty Hardy- A tough but powerful book that opens with a woman who is lying in her driveway after having been shot by the police. She goes through and thinks about her life as she’s lying there, and reflects specifically on what it’s like living life as a second generation immigrant and woman of color in America.
Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley | Charlotte Gordon | Look, I’m fully aware that there’s little chance that I’ll get around to reading this, but it sounded interesting enough to make my list. I got interested in Mary Shelley from Annotated Episode 5 I got this rec in person from Tyler @windycitybookshelf at the Chicago bookswap event!
