#5OnMyTBR – Animals

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!


Hello, reader!

It’s once again Monday and, can I just say, I’m super excited about this week’s 5 On My TBR theme! Why is that? Because this week, we’re focusing on one of my favorite topics: animals! There are a lot of ways you can take this theme. Are we looking for animals on the cover? Animal companions? Animals as main characters? I’m going with any and all of these apply! My list of five is a mix of a few interpretations, but they are all books I can’t wait to read.


#1. A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

This is one of those books that I put on my TBR forever ago and kind of forgot about. But it’s also one that sounds incredibly interesting! It’s about a woman who wants to be a dragon naturalist which, come on, how can you not want to read that? Women scientists and dragons all in one book! Also, I absolutely love the cover 😍 One day I will pick this one up, perhaps sooner than later now that I’ve been reminded how much I want to read it, lol.

Oh and it clearly fits the theme since it’s centered around dragons!

#2. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin

While this book doesn’t feature an animal, per se, it certainly has one in the title! The main character also has wolf tattoos according to the synopsis, so I think that counts 😂 She’s also a skinshifter who is entering a race so she can try and kill Hitler which sounds incredible! I’ve been interested in this book for awhile. I’ve also been hearing a lot about it, lately, which makes me even more excited to pick it up! Perhaps it’ll be one of my first reads in 2021?
