Hey y’all! It’s DAY ONE of June, and for the first time in a really long time (maybe ever?) I have my TBR already planned out AND posted! 🎉 The reason — and theme — for this is “oh wow, I actually have all these books to read, when did that happen?” It certainly wasn’t on purpose, but somehow I have a bunch of books lined up ready to be read. So here they are!
Thanks, local library!
Two out of these three are also Fast Forward Friday featured books, but the main tie for these is that they’re all new releases and they’re all ones I have a library hold coming up for in the next week or two! I got really lucky with some of these to have copies so soon! But that also means I ended up with three books with a time limit to read. xD
Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt and The Noh Family by Grace K. Shim are the two that I had already been planning on reading. I’ve seen The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill around a lot and had been pretty solidly ignoring it as I do most hyped, popular books. But then I read the synopsis: “The ornate reading room at the Boston Public Library –” OKAY I’M SOLD IT’S AT THE BPL AND THAT’S DOPE AF SINCE I KNOW IT WELL.
Things I Own
Pachinko by Min Jin Lee is one I’m carrying over from reading last month, but I’m about 80% done with it, so it’ll definitely be wrapped up this month! I also pre-ordered Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone because he’s the author of The Expats which was my first international spy thriller kind of novel and I L-O-V-E-D it! I never pre-order!! Anyway, I’ll continue that one as well. And Sankofa by Chibundu Onuzo has been on my shelf for a while from Book of the Month and I haven’t read it yet. So I probably should. Working on that. 😅
