TBR Spring Cleaning Book Tag
One: A middle-grade book you would have loved as a kid
My Pick: The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) by Rick Riordan
DO NOT COME FOR ME! It is true....I STILL haven't completed Percy Jackson. I didn't even become a Harry Potter kid until late college.
Two: The book that has been on your TBR the longest
My Pick: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Goodreads has spoken. Added July 6, 2019, this one sits at the very back of my TBR. I am excited about it and I hope it will be as angsty as I suspect.
Three: A book from a series you enjoyed but have been putting off continuing
My Pick: A Light in the Flame by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This one is a relatively new release, but after absolutely bingeing all of her Blood and Ash series as well as the first in this series (which are all chunky books), I need a minute to breath. I had some pallette cleaners and it's time to get caught up!
Four: A book on your TBR that has an animal or plant in the title
My Pick: Other Birds by Sarah Addison Allen
I don't really know anything about this one other than the author is well-loved by many! I plan on going into this one blind.
Five: A book that was recommended to you a while ago, but you haven't gotten around to
My Pick: American Royals by Katharine McGee
My sister-in-law is probably twitching reading this. NO I STILL HAVEN'T READ IT.
Six: A book you've walked past in the library or bookstore, or have scrolled past on Bookstagram or BookTok multiple times
My Pick: Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister
The Groundhog Day inspired book looks like the perfect combination of time travel and thriller, both of which I flock to.
Seven: A book you wouldn't typically read
My Pick: Still Life by Louise Penny
I am not much of a mystery reader. In fact, I took a literature course in college dedicated to murder mysteries….and did not love it. I am becoming more and more convinced that my disdain for the mystery genre is rooted in book choice. This series has 18 novels in it, with new ones being published each year. There has to be something in there for me, right?
Eight: A book with a toxic character
My Pick: They Never Learn by Layne Fargo
This novel follows an English professor who finds the worst man at her university and then plots their murder. This one is going to be a toxic dump of characters!
Nine: A genre you've been neglecting
My Pick: My Lady Jane by C. Hand, B. Ashton, J. Meadows (Young Adult)
I never grew out of my YA phase. Unfortunately, I haven’t been reading a ton of it and am hoping to be more active about fitting some in. Throw in some history and fantasy… I’m sold.
Ten: A well-known author you haven't read yet
My Pick: Kindred by Octavia Butler
I’ve gone to the library, checked out an Octavia Butler book, then returned it unread more times than I can count. I am really looking forward to diving into some of her work.
