Yesterday I posted my Top Ten Tuesday about the books I hope to read this spring. After seeing a post over on Jesticulates’ blog, I remembered that I did a similar TTT for my Winter TBR. So let’s take a look and see how I did with the books I had hoped to read over the colder and darker months!
The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates: It was the author’s first fiction novel and was magnificent. Lyrical and mesmerizing, I really fell for this story. Recursion by Blake Crouch: Another complete mindf&*k from the impressive imagination of Blake Crouch. It was fascinating, but it really did a number on my head. Wilder Girls by Rory Power: It was all right. It didn’t really go anywhere, but I was interested enough to not be mad about reading it. Some people were upset with the ending but I found it to be satisfactory. Miss Iceland by Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir: A charming ARC that I’ll be posting a full review for in May. Keep an eye out! The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood: THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. Everything about it was divine. Read my review here!
The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver: I started it but had so many ARC’s I needed to read that it got put on the back burner.
A Warning by Anonymous: A pretty grim take on the Trump administration. It didn’t reveal anything new, but the book laid the insanity of this presidency out in a cohesive and downright frightening way.
The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester: This has now rolled over into my Spring TBR!
A Beginning at the End by Mike Chen: Probably not the best book to be reading right now if you have virus fears, but it was definitely a compelling story of returning to a semi-normal life after a pandemic. Read my review here.
It looks like I managed seven out of ten which I don’t think is too shabby at all. Hopefully I will have similar success with my Spring TBR!
Have you read any of these? How have your TBR lists been going? Let me know in the comments!
