I have decided to do something a little bit different with my TBR this month. I’ll usually have about 12-15 books on my TBR to give myself a little variety during the month, but that means I usually don’t finish them. February was a little bit of a disaster in terms of my TBR for a number of reasons, so I’ve decided to roll over my January and February TBR’s into a single month.
However, I won’t only be reading those books. As I’m always acquiring new titles, there are a few that will be added to the list:
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi (one of the most highly anticipated releases of my life.)
The State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury (a gorgeous new release!)
The Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell (plucked from my new TBR jar by my sister)
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (seeing her on the 23rd of March!! Yes, I have been living under a rock and haven’t read this yet.)
Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton (a victim of the Great Backpack Incident of 2018)
City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett (my fantasy bookclub pick for the month!)
This post is coming a little bit late this month, and I’ve already started working my way through this TBR! I read Children of Blood and Bone first and it was absolutely fantastic. As someone who has been reading fantasy for almost her entire life, I can say that this book is one of the single best fantasy novels I’ve ever read. I don’t care if you only read adult fantasy, you must pick this up.
I’m currently reading State of Sorrow, which is a beautiful and slow-moving book. I’m about 140 pages in. I wouldn’t say I’m not enjoying it, but I’m not compelled to pick it up. I’ve set it aside temporarily and am hoping I’m in the mood to read it soon. I love Salisbury’s writing, but I definitely need to be in the right mood to read her books.
