The last few months have been tough on my TBR list. I’m still adding books at a crazy rate, but I’ve been reading a lot less than I did the first few months of the year. With moving and school starting, I’ve been incredibly busy and haven’t had as much time to read for fun. Since I’m still adding the same amount of books, my poor TBR list is bursting even more than it was when I started this blog. And there are still a handful of books that scare me a bit.
- Summerland by Michael Chabon - Once, several years ago, I was asking for books recommendations from my brother and he stated that this book was one of his favorites. I checked it out from the library, but it was so much thicker than I’d anticipated and I ended up returning it without even opening it. Now, it’s just been sitting on my TBR for years. I’ve found it in three different public libraries and thought about checking it out, but I always decide against it because I never seem to be in the mood to tackle a book as thick as this (though it isn’t actually that big). Will I ever actually get around to it? Time will tell….
- Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge - I absolutely Beauty & the Beast stories, so one day, I added a bunch to my TBR. Now that it’s been awhile, I glanced back over them…..and I was kind of surprised that I added this one. It looks like a romance novel, it sounds like a romance novel, and a lot of my friends who tend to like romance novels gave it very high ratings. I don’t typically enjoy romance novels, so I’m a bit hesitant to try this one out - even if it is a fun BATB story…
Do you have any books you’re currently afraid to read? Any BATB stories I should try out?
