Hello friends and happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend and a happy father’s day, if you celebrated. It was my husband’s birthday on father’s day. We didn’t do too much just stayed home, had grilled out and had a couple of his friends over. How was your weekend?
Down the TBR hole is a meme created by Lisa at lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
One Million Project
All of these books are separate books but because I want to keep them all on my TBR I’m combining them for this post. One Million Project is several different anthologies in different genres, but all of the proceeds (after production costs) goes toward cancer research and homeless charities.
Bloody Brilliant Women: The Pioneers, Revolutionaries and Geniuses Your History Teacher Forgot to Mention
by Cathy Newman
The two opening lines for the synopsis of this book are:
‘A litany of fresh heroes to make the embattled heart sing’ Caitlin Moran
A fresh, opinionated history of all the brilliant women you should have learned about in school but didn’t.
Um, YES! I 100% want to read this!
The Song of Achilles
by Madeline Miller
If you have been here for any amount of time, you know that I, mostly, don’t read historical fiction. Honestly, this sounds like a good book and something that I could potentially get into and enjoy but I just don’t think it’s for me.
The Witch’s Daughter
by Paula Brackston
The last line of the synopsis says this:
Part historical romance, part modern fantasy, Paula Brackston’s New York Times bestseller, The Witch’s Daughter, is a fresh, compelling take on the magical, yet dangerous world of Witches. Readers will long remember the fiercely independent heroine who survives plagues, wars, and the heartbreak that comes with immortality to remain true to herself, and protect the protégé she comes to love
This sounds really good and I’m definitely picking it up during autumn, too!
Whew! Usually I only do five books at a time but today I doubled that to try to clear some of them out faster. What do you think of this list? Are any of these a favorite of yours?
