Books on My TBR I’m Excited to Read

Text placeholder

Hello, friends and foes! Aren’t you tired of me apologizing for being MIA? Well, this time it was on purpose (mostly). I just didn’t feel like writing, so I took a little break.

But now, with a brand new (and relevant to nothing) Jonas Brothers release on the horizon, I am ready to get back on the proverbial horse. And I’m doing that by talking about some books from my TBR I’m especially psyched to read.

As you may or may not know, I’m a mood reader. I don’t like to “assign” myself books to read. I rarely, if ever, stick to a reading plan. So understand that when I use “TBR,” I simply mean books on my shelf I plan on reading at some point.

But these are the ones I’m most excited for, so I’ll likely be reading them soon. Unless I change my mind. But I won’t do that before I finish this post, so they’re priorities for now.

  1. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke


An epic fantasy about two opposing magicians? A recommendation by V.E. Schwab herself? It’s like this book was written and packaged especially for me.

It’s been on my ‘Want to Read’ shelf on Goodreads since I started my account, but I’ve been too intimidated to give it a try. I mean, it’s over 1,000 pages. It’s big enough to kill somebody with!

…Not that I would do that or anything. No, I’m not being suspicious at all.

Anyway, I finally bought it the other day and I’m ready to take the plunge. It’ll probably take me the entirety of March, but who cares? I’m reading for quality after all.

  1. The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins


Based on my limited knowledge on this book, it’s best to go into blind. I’ve heard it’s part-fantasy, part-mystery, and part-literary fiction. In other words, it’s all weird but in the best way.

I’m always down for a delightfully bizarre read, so this sounds right up my alley. And it’s another Schwab-recommended read. I hope to get to this book in March or April. Or I could save it for October. Who knows what my mood will dictate?

  1. The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman


I read The Golden Compass for the first time this year and really enjoyed it. I’m always down for a timeless read about alternate versions of our world.

The first book ended with Lyra and Pantalaimon starting a new adventure and I’m excited to see where it goes. This feels like a spring read, so hopefully I’ll read it in April or May.

  1. The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty


That’s right, I still haven’t read one of my most anticipated reads of the year. But in my defense, I didn’t put it on my TBR shelf (which is actually a converted CD shelf) so I keep forgetting I have it.

This series has such rich world-building and delicious political intrigue, so I’m pretty hyped to jump back into this story. Even though the cover looks like an out-of-place alien invasion.

I read The City of Brass last April, so maybe I’ll read the sequel this April. For symmetry and all that.

  1. An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green


Initially, I wasn’t planning on reading this book at all. I’ve decided John Green’s books are no longer for me and assumed his brother’s writing wouldn’t be much different.

But I can’t argue with countless glowing reviews. At least not without giving the book a chance. And now I’m kind of eager to try it. I’m not sure when I’ll get to it, but I hope to within the next couple months.
