Tackling My TBR: June 2020

Tuesday, June 02, 2020

Tackling My TBR is a monthly post, where I share my reading plans for the upcoming month.

I’ve taken a little break with my TBR jar since my classes have started up again. I noticed that the busier I get with classes, the least likely I am to read books that I’ve picked out of the jar. I seem to prefer mood reading when I’m taking classes. However, I still wanted to share a TBR with you because there’s some great books I’m excited to read this month.

That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston: I admit, this was entirely a cover buy for me. I know almost nothing about the plot except that it’s set in the future. I read Johnston’s A Thousand Nights and really enjoyed her flowery writing so I’m looking to reading something else by her.

Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran: I pulled this book from the TBR jar last month. I decided to read it on audio via Scribd but by the time I got around to it, Scribd said it was no longer available. I’m determined to get to it this month. Madame Tussaud follows a famed wax sculptor during the French Revolution.

Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan: A lot of people have recommended this one to me. Plus, being summer, it’s definitely the perfect time to read about a theme park romance. Not only is it a romance but the characters must work together to figure out a way to stop the park from closing forever (I love when that happens in books!).

The End of Oz by Danielle Paige: With the completion of the Chronicles of Narnia last month, I want to continue the theme with finishing the Dorothy Must Die series. 

The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg: It’s being pitched as Disney World meets science fiction. Stop right there. You had me at Disney.

For review

Girl, Serpent, and Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust (7/7/20): I’m in the middle of this one and it’s absolutely amazing! I liked Bashardoust’s debut, Girls Made of Snow and Glass, but Girl, Serpent, Thorn takes everything to the next level. Inspired by Persian mythology, it follows a girl who was cursed with poisonous touch.

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon (7/14/20) : I just received this one in the mail and it sounds so good! I’ve never read anything by Rachel Lynn Solomon but Today Tonight Tomorrow sounds like just the book for me. It’s an enemies-to-lovers romance that follow two over-achievers who are forced together to win a senior class game called Howl. I think it also takes place in the span of 24 hours which makes it even more intriguing.

What are you planning on reading this month?
