Keep ’em short, and I’ll hit my reading goals.
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. Is it effective? Perhaps. 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 FEBRUARY|
In February, I only committed to reading four books. Did I get through all four? YES!
The four priority February books I read were:
- Speak: Classic YA book you gotta read. The one I read was a new graphic novel adaptation, and oh my, Emily Carroll did a beautiful job illustrating the scenes.
- Is This Guy for Real?: The Unbelievable Andy Kaufman: Andy Kaufman is a weird guy, but I can see why many people enjoyed watching this comedian. He pushed a lot of boundaries, and you can’t help but admire what he’s accomplished with his comedic acts.
- The Prince and the Dressmaker: CUTE. This is an absolutely delightful graphic novel. A boy who loves dressing up in dresses! It’s very uplifting.
- Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World: I want Mackenzi Lee to regale me more tales of badass ladies in history. She makes it so much fun and accessible!
I also read The Wicked + The Divine 1923 (which is so divine, and I have a hard time speaking of how beautiful it is because goddamn, it has my heart and soul), and The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 5 + 6 (shit hits the fans in these volumes, and I’m not ready for it to end!).
|PRIORITY MARCH READS|
- The Tangled Lands: I don’t know too much about this book aside from how it’s a book with four interconnected stories of a world. Interested to see how that works.
- Dress Like A Woman: Working Women and What They Wore: What perfect book to look through Women’s History month than a photography book about what women wore throughout history?
- Pacifica: Climate change has destroyed the world, so what happens next? That is this book.
- The Price Guide to the Occult: WITCHES. I’m in the middle of reading this, and I’m riveted by Nor’s fear of her mother.
- Radical Element: 12 Stories of Daredevils, Debutantes, & Other Dauntless Girls: Different girls of different walks of life and era challenging what girls is “supposed” to do.
- A Possibility of Whales: All of Karen Rivers’s Middle Grades have a special place in my heart for being beautiful and gutwrenching. I expect this MG will be no different.
|MARCH BOOKS I WANT TO READ|
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 March!
