A weekly feature in which I share new books I added to my TBR.
I wish I was more consistent with these, but the fact is that sometimes I find a lot of books in a week and sometimes I find none. So we’re still calling these “weekly”, but they are more “whenever I have enough books”. I just like the sound of Weekly. Anyways, I have a couple of great books to share with you today!
1. Spell on Wheels, Vol. 1 by Kate Leth, Megan Levens, Marissa Louise
Why I added it: I have this weird obsession with witches. I love them. And I can never find really good books about witches (hit me with your recs), so I am always on a witch hunt (get it?). I found this on Instagram and I think the art looks STUNNING so I am really looking forward to that one!
2. The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
Why I added it: This is a magical realism young adult book about two families of circus performers, who are in a long feud. There’s also a mention of mermaids, so I am all about it. It seems to be a Romeo & Juliet retelling, but let’s hope it has a prettier ending.
3. An Unrestored Woman by Shobha Rao
Why I added it: This is a short story collection set in India during the 1940s and all of the stories are interconnected, which sounds awesome. You might be thinking – Is it possible that you’re still trying to get into short stories even though they don’t work for you? And the answers is YES. There’s bound to be one for me out there. And one where all stories are intertwined might just do the trick.
4. Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Why I added it: This is a YA magical realism story (notice a theme?) about a small town where a girl goes missing. I mean you had me at small towns and cemented the need to read this at magical realism. I really want to read magical realism. It’s a thing.
5. In the Days of Rain: A Daughter, a Father, a Cult by Rebecca Stott
Why I added it: This is a non fiction book that centers around Stott’s father, his involvement in a cult, and how that affected her life. Let me tell you, I am fascinated by cults. So a book by someone who was a part of it seems right up my alley. I am really excited to check this one out!
So those are new books on my TBR! As always, let me know what you think and share your new finds with me in the comments!
A quick announcement: I am going away on holiday for the next 10 days! I am so excited – it’s gonna be a lot of beach reading and relaxing. However, that means I won’t be online as much, even though there are a couple of post scheduled for you during my break. I just won’t be able to respond to your comments as much!
Come hang out with me:
