A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.

TBR (to be read) Lists: if you have one, they’re amazing, but ever-growing. In my experience, the books I added first, at the top/upper-middle section of the list, never get read because I’m always adding books to the bottom of my list. Lots of times, I start reading the book right after having added it to my TBR list. Maybe your experience is similar.
Honestly, I try not to critique this aspect of myself because, dammit I’m reading! And not everyone does that. So, no matter where you are at on your TBR list, here are 5 books on my list that I’ll be reading in the coming months!
1. Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran
Featured in the photo above, this one has been on my TBR list for quite some time, after purchasing it at a bookstore in Minneapolis. I read the back and found myself intrigued; read the Goodreads description. I’m eager to finally check this book off my list!
2. Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid
While perusing a magazine, I found this book on a short list of great books. Just reading the small blurb in the magazine, I was pulled into the story. Check it out on Goodreads.
3. American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
In that same magazine, on that same short list I also found this book and it had the same effect, but a completely different storyline. Read about it on Goodreads. This one has a strong emotional tug and I am anxious to get started!
4. Recipe For A Perfect Wife by Karma Brown
Completely different from most books I read, this book really intrigued me. I’m eager to shake things up and read something unique to my typical choices. Check it out on Goodreads. This one will be a fun change and I’m excited to incorporate it.
5. Miracles And Other Reasonable Things by Sarah Bessey
Maybe this is cheating, but this book was chosen for me by the book club I’m in. It is our March book, and since I plowed through our February book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, I’m eager to get started on our March-read. Read the description on Goodreads.
There are some great titles I’ll be reading soon and I am really excited about them all! Hope you’re intrigued by some or all of these and they make it onto your TBR list. Tell me about a book on your TBR list; maybe I’ll add it to my every-growing, never-ending list.
