too much tbr july

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.

Still gotta read: Knife’s Edge by Hope Larson and Rebecca Mock and Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey. I will try to read them in July. (I know I will.)

PRIORITY JULY READS

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!

How was your June? Tell me what’s on your July TBR list. Have you read any of the books on my lists? Or are you planning to read them?

    Hi Cee~ happy July! “Love & Other Alien Experiments” sounds look a good novel, I might add that one to my never-ending TBR! Also, a Scooby Doo-esque novel?!? WHERE DO I OBTAIN THIS. NEED. I absolutely adore the title of this one! Ah, the nostalgia.
    I have no clue what to read next… I’m currently reading “A Discovery of Witches” by Deborah Harkness because a friend at work loaned me her copy, so I feel the need to hurry up and finish it (only 300 some pages left, hah ha h haaa~). But after that…….
    Another friend wants me to read “Want” by Cindy Pon, so I might pick that up…but we’ll see. There’s so much that I want to read that I don’t know what to read…problems of a book dragon. ;D

    I really need to order The Refrigerator Monologues soon! Which Valente book you’d recommend I read first, though?

    I don’t think I’ve read a book about abortion either but Jane the Virgin did tackle the topic once and did it well.

    I can only recognize Love and Other Alien Experiences from your TBR since I hardly ever read MG haha. I definitely have some sci-fi I want to get to, catch up on comics like WicDiv, Motor Crush, Surgeon X and probably start another comic series while I’m at it. Patsy Walker, maybe.
