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 get down to it.
|BACK IN AUGUST
In August, I didn’t actually finish any of the books that were priority for September, BUT I did finish two fantastic novellas—REVIEW • The Vine Cutting Heist at Chateau l’etrange (The Suitcase Clone by Robin Sloan) and Comfort Me With Apples by Catherynne M. Valence (be on the lookout for a review soon!)
I’m still slowly making my way through Babel, which has been fantastic so far.
|PRIORITY SEPTEMBER READS
- Babel: “Babel — a thematic response to The Secret History and a tonal response to Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell — grapples with student revolutions, colonial resistance, and the use of translation as a tool of empire.” Dark academia with an Asian main character. Ready for this. (Just need to finish this.)
|SEPTEMBER BOOKS I WANT TO READ
Nona the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir | The Sunbearer Trials by Aiden Thomas | Self-Made Boys (A Great Gatsby Remix) by Anna-Marie McLemore | The Genesis of Misery by Neon Yang | The Gathering Dark: An Anthology of Folk Horror edited by Tori Bovalino
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!
