This is a meme by The Broke And The Bookish and the topic is pretty self-explanatory, yes? This is the one where we make lists and shake our heads at the lies we tell ourselves. Go.
(Can never go wrong with a Dean gif, can we? All credits to the TV show. I just enjoy looking at him.)
The List (which I probably will disregard one day into spring. When does spring start anyway and has anyone told the cherry blossoms they’re not supposed to bloom right now?)
- The Crow by Alison Croggon (which I am currently reading. It is almost spring right?)
- The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner (this I am also currently reading. There is a readalong going on in case you didn’t know.)
- The Girl with Ghost Eyes – M. H. Boroson (I have this out from the library and it’s looking more and more wonderful as I look at it.)
- Man Tiger – Eka Kurniawan (Indonesian writer that I haven’t read yet. And the synopsis of this one is so awesome.)
- The Rook – Daniel O’Malley (I have the sequel to review but I have forgotten all about the first so reread this one I will.)
- Short Stories for Kids and Teens by Contemporary Shanghai Writers (This needs to be reviewed and I’m looking forward to reading it like whoa.)
- Flamecaster – Cinda Williams Chima (Yep, yep.)
- Booked – Kwame Alexander
- A Drop of Night – Stefan Bachmann
- It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel – Firoozeh Dumas
- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
- Gotham Academy Vol. 2 by Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl
- The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy by Jill MacLean
- Boxers and Saints by Gene Luen Yang
- At least five titles from this list by Debbie Reese
- More of Almost Human by Walking North
I HAVE SO MANY TBR BOOKS PLEASE SEND HELP I AM DROWNI–
- A Spy in the House by Y. S. Lee: Biracial lady detective in Victorian England. Sign. Me. Up.
- Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan: Nafiza and I are meant to co-review this by April. *nervous dancing* I don’t even know when I can get to this. *continues dancing to the washroom*
- Tippoo Sultan’s Incredible White-Man-Eating Tiger Toy-Machine!!! by Daljit Nagra: That title won me over. Plus, Indian poet!
- Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner: I heard the audio play is very lovely!
- Tiffin: Memories and Recipes of Indian Vegetarian Food by Rukmini Srinivas: I think Twitter (Nafiza?) brought this to my attention and it’ll be nice to have a book I don’t have to read cover to cover. I will, however, seek out every non-recipe bit to read in one go.
