Any book lover will tell you that there is not enough time to read all the books that you want to read. We try anyway, very valiantly. There’s a ton of books that I wish I had already gotten to this year, but I haven’t had a chance to yet.
These are just some of the books I wish I had already gotten to this year. I’m still hoping to get to them, so fingers crossed!
Teeth in the Mist – This one I’m especially hoping to get to this month, but we’ll see. I really enjoyed Dawn Kurtagich’s novel The Dead House so I was super excited when I heard this one was coming out. I was even more excited when I heard it was a spin on Faust. It’s a bit of a tome but it appears to have a good amount of mixed media in it so I’m hoping that once I get into it I’ll be able to power through it. Plus, I love this cover and how abnormal and creepy it is.
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe – I’ve heard mixed things about this book, both negative and positive, but the premise of it intrigues me. I’ve heard that it can be a pretty quick read so that’s always a good factor. I am pretty picky about the sci-fi that I read, but this one sounds like it’s one I will really enjoy.
Trail of Lightning – I’ve had this one my TBR since it came out. I’m a sucker for anything mythology based from pretty much any culture. I feel that mythology and cultural traditions are important regardless of which culture it is. If stories aren’t told, mythologies and traditions not taught, then they will be lost. That being said, anything culturally based, especially with mythology will pretty much be an auto buy for me. I’ve also heard great things about Rebecca Roanhorse and her writing so I really want to get into this series.
Not Too Bad – I know this one is going to be hard for me to read, but I’ve wanted to read it for a while. Discussing rape culture is an important conversation to have in my opinion, doesn’t mean it’s easy at all, but it has to happen. I’ve heard great things about this book, so I was eager to pick it up regardless of how difficult it may be to read.
These are just some of the books I wish I had already gotten to. Believe me when I say there are so many more to pick from but these are definitely near the top of my pile.
