I’ve been relatively good at not adding too many books to my TBR lately. While my mental TBR is thousands upon thousands long, I make sure to only add books I am interested in for the immediate future to my Goodreads page or else I get completely overwhelmed.
It’s much easier to tick everything off a list and accomplish something if you keep it manageable!
Keeping that in mind, these are a few of the books I have added to my Goodreads TBR lately. Be sure to go here to check it out!
Title: Save Me the Waltz
Author: Zelda Fitzgerald
Release Date: 1932
A friend of mine recommended this one to me while I was reading Tender is the Night recently! I’ve always been hesitant to read Zelda Fitzgerald, considering how much I love her husbands work, but I finally gave in and have added this to my TBR. I’m trying to find the perfect time to read this one!
Author: Russell Brand
Release Date: October 14th 2014
I’ve been on a bit of a memoir kick lately! I saw a few copies of this around various bookshops when I was in Melbourne but I always chose something else over this one. Now that I’m getting through the other books, I am more and more keen to get to this one asap.
Author: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: November 8th 2016
I’m sure prior that to now I knew about Marissa Meyer’s upcoming novel Heartless, but somehow it completely skipped my mind until I saw it on Goodreads and Booktube these past couple of weeks. This is an upcoming prequel to Alice in Wonderland told from the Queen of Hearts perspective. After her incredible Lunar Chronicles series, I don’t believe Meyer can do any wrong with re-tellings. I’m so looking forward to this book!
Title: Breathing Under Water
Author: Sophie Hardcastle
Release Date: July 12th 2016
Whilst on holidays I read Sophie Hardcastle’s debut novel and memoir Running Like China. I absolutely loved her biography and hope to write a full review on it soon. But since finishing the book I have gone on one of those post-book stalking sprees and started following her on every social media platform available! So when I heard that she was publishing a YA novel (I think) that has been dubbed beautifully written and emotional I couldn’t not add it to my TBR. I’m so excited. So, so excited.
Title: Eating Animals
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
Release Date: November 2nd 2009
As someone who was vegan for 2 and a half years and have been vegetarian for basically forever, books like this simply fascinate me. I think they are completely interesting and something that should be required learning worldwide. Apparently Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals is a brilliant look into why and how we eat animals. Definitely something I’m keen to get around to soon!
Let me know if you’ve read any of these before! Are they worthy of being on my TBR? ▲
