TBR: October 2017

TBR October 2017

I have a growing stack of books I have bought, but haven’t read. In an attempt to make a dent in both the books I have lying around and my TBR list, I am going to declare this month OWNtober, which I have seen other bloggers coin. I will put my blinders on and have eyes only for the books that I already own. I am really excited to do this, because every time I walk by a clustering of my books I haven’t read I feel a tinge of guilt and also a tinge of longing for what great story is waiting to be told. Here are a few of the books I plan to get to this month in the spirit of OWNtober:

Newly Added TBR Pick (< 1 year):

  • Confess by Colleen Hoover: This book, I believe is categorized as a romance, which is not a book genre I would normally pick up, however, Confess and Colleen Hoover in general seems to be beloved by many of the blogs I follow, so I have been interested in seeing what all the fuss is about. This is a romance that takes place in the art world, something I don’t often read about, and the love interest is hiding a deep, dark secret. Sounds delish. Date Added: July 11, 2017

Long Ago Added TBR Picks (> 1 year):

  • Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch: This is a YA fantasy that takes place in the Kingdom of Winter, which was conquered 16 years ago and as a result its people and their magic were enslaved. Meira was orphaned during the takeover and has been a refugee raised by the Winterian’s General, training to be a warrior. Her journey as a warrior takes her on a path she wasn’t expecting filled with magic and danger. Sounds enticing, right? Date Added: August 28, 2015
  • The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: This is the second time this YA contemporary has been on my TBR, but this time I mean it! This promises to be a tear jerker as it follows Lennie as she copes with her sister’s sudden death. Date Added: September 15, 2013
