June made me realize how I only have attention span to read comics and fanfiction. (What’s new? Amirite.)
For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.
Let’s discuss what I read last month, and what I’m reading this month!
|BACK IN JUNE|
In June, I wanted to read five (actually four) books and a bunch of comic books in preparation of meeting Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr. I did excellent on the graphic novels front, but the review books? Ehhhhh.
My absolutely favorite read in June was The Refrigerator Monologues by Catherynne M. Valente. This comic ladies…<3. It’s angry and desperate and unapologetic. It is perfection. (I need to write a review for this one, but I am always so stunned into inarticulate words when I read Catherynne M. Valente’s writing.)
I finished Aftercare Instructions by Bonnie Pipkin, and it made me realize how I never have read a book about abortion in my entire life.
I’ve also finished these comics, and they were absolutely delightful: Batgirl Vol. 1-3, Gotham Academy Vol. 1-3, Black Canary Vol. 1-2, and Motor Crush.
|PRIORITY JULY READS|
- Knife’s Edge by Hope Larson and Rebecca Mock (YES! THE SEQUEL TO COMPASS SOUTH.)
- Katana at Super Hero High by Lisa Yee (Currently reading this, and it’s very cute. Loving the focus on Katana.)
- Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero (Scooby Doo-esque gang reunite as adults to solve a supernatural mystery!!)
- Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey (I hope this is as adorable as everybody says it is, even with aliens.)
- Pennybaker School Is Headed for Disaster by Jennifer Brown (A Middle Grade but a kid who enrolls in an odd academy full of “uniquely gifted” kids like chainsaw juggling and didgeridoo playing)
- Bubbles by Abby Cooper (A young girl who sees thought bubbles over people’s heads.)
- Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer Honeybourn (Hate to love trope!)
- What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy (Three teens + Space + save the world)
Note: All these books here do not account for other books that may slip into my TBR list (because mood reading will probably happen) nor of the comics I will be reading. I’m sure I missed other books I want to read this month too, but since I can’t remember, it must not be priority, right? Let’s hope I make a dent in my TBR books for June!
