What is up my little book nerds. It’s another Sunday and (I missed last week’s because I’m dumb) I’m back with another #SixForSunday prompt from dear Steph. April’s prompts are all about out TBR piles, and this week’s is recent additions to the pile. Some of these books are a little older, but they’ve all only just made it onto my TBR so that’s why they’re here. Anyway, lets do this!
The City We Became – N. K. Jemisin
N. K. Jemisin is probably one of my favourite authors ever. I started reading her based on a post on Trudi Canavan’s website (another of my favourite authors) so I started with The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and was instantly hooked. I was super lucky to be sent a proof copy of The City We Became and it’s now sitting on my bedside table, ready to be started next.
Venom – Bex Hogan
This is one I’ve been waiting for for a while! Viper was one of the first books I ever got as a proof when I started as a bookseller, and I was totally hooked. Venom came through to me just before we all got quarantined, so I’m very excited to read it and find out whats been happening in this world. (Plus, Steph adored it and now I’m even more excited.)
Crater Lake – Jennifer Killick
OK, so it’s safe to say that I’m a bit of a wimp. I’m not a huge horror fan, I don’t do well with being scared, and I’m generally just a bit skittish if I get frightened. Which is why I’m super thrilled to read this, a hour/sci-fi aimed at middle grade! Hopefully it won’t bring back to many memories of Y6 residential, and fingers crossed I’ll make it through without being too terrified. No promises though…
Diary of a Confused Feminist – Kate Weston
This has been on my list for SO LONG and it’s meant to be hilarious, so I definitely need to read it. Plus, Kate came and did a store visit and was an absolute B A B E so that makes me both need to read it more and also feel terrible that I haven’t read it yet.
The Lost Future of Pepperharrow – Natasha Pulley
If you know me, you’ll know that I mostly stick to MG/YA books, with the occasional dabble in adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy. One book that I really need to read that isn’t any of them is the newest Natasha Pulley, The Lost Future of Pepperharrow. I read The Bedlam Stacks as part of a transatlantic book club with my friend Nicole, loved it, and then got sent a copy of Pepperharrow, so it’s nearing the top of my TBR pile.
The Blade Itself – Joe Abercrombie
I’ve been meaning to read this whole trilogy for ages, but I think now is probably a good time to. I started The Blade Itself a while back but put it aside for other, gayer things, so I think I owe it another chance and to return to it. Plus, Joe is a certified DILF and I am very here for this.
So there we have it. Six new additions to my TBR and all of them I’m really excited for. What books have made it onto your TBR? Let me know in the comments or on twitter, and I’ll see you next time!
