FIVE ON OUR TBRS

We’ve found that breaking down our TBRs can be something that inspires us to pick up reads hidden or briefly forgotten. ‘Five on my TBR’ is something that we have done a few times on bookstagram. We thought it’d be nice to have a running occasional feature where we pick five on our TBRs and you tell us yours.. and no doubt that will cause some adding to TBRs!

Check out our first post here.

Micky’s five


THE SHADOWS BETWEEN US by Tricia Levenseller
SUCH A FUN AGE by Kiley Reid
SEVEN DEVILS by Elizabeth May & Laura Lam
THE BEAR & THE NIGHTINGALE by Katherine Arden
SWEET BLACK WAVES by Kristina Perez

Let me just address the fact that I’ve only read one from my last 5 on our tbrs…and let’s move on. It’s a big deal for me to commit to BEAR as I am bruised from many sides with bookie friends poking me to read this one (Hollis needs me to do this, she’s only been asking for years). I want to, but I want to love it and I feel a little trepidation. I’m a recent fan of Laura Lam and so SEVEN DEVILS is a no-brainer for me.

Hollis’ five

SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO by Taylor Jenkins Reid
THE FIRST SISTER by Linden A. Lewis
SEVEN DEVILS by Laura Lam & Elizabeth May
THE OBELISK GATE by N. K. Jemisin
BLOODY ROSE by Nicholas Eames

Since our first post of this nature, I actually managed to read three (+ two as one was a series opener) of my original five and while I thought to leave the other two on this list, I’m only going to leave one — the TJR. Because I still don’t know what’s stopping me from reading that one. THE FIRST SISTER is a recommendation from my blog buddy extraordinaire, see her review here, SEVEN DEVILS because I want (need) feminist ensemble space opera in my life, THE OBELISK GATE because I finally read book one in The Broken Earth trilogy and loved it, and BLOODY ROSE because book one in The Band series was a fantastic fun and I’m hoping to buddy it with the friend I read KINGS OF THE WYLD with.


Tell us the top five books on your immediate TBR! Do any of ours make your lists?
