#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!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a 5 On My TBR, so I figured it was about time I brought it back. The topic this week is science and I’m interpreting this one in a couple of ways. I have a mixture of science fiction and and non-fiction centered around science and they’re all books that I can’t wait to read!
Now it’s time to see what’s on my list.
#1. The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
One day, I am going to finally read the Broken Earth trilogy. One day!
This series, and this book in particular, has been on my TBR for forever. It sounds like a science fiction novel that would be right up my alley. Something that focuses on the characters and their struggles but also has incredible world-building. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this book, which is why I’m so excited to pick it up! Now I just gotta squeeze it onto a monthly TBR, lol.
#2. Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
I’ve wanted to read this book ever since I heard about the movie. Which is kind of funny because I haven’t seen the movie, either 😅 But a book that tells the true tale of the Black women who helped make NASA what it is? Yes, please! This sounds like one of those non-fiction books that won’t read like a textbook. Those are the ones I can just eat up! I’m looking forward to getting to this one… eventually.
#3. Kindred by Octavia Butler
I’ve been wanting to dip my toe into Octavia Butler’s books for a long time. I figured, why not start with one of her more popular sci-fis?
The subject matter of this story promises to pack quite a punch, so I feel like I need to be in a good mindset for it. But it also sounds likes it’s going to be absolutely amazing. I do love a bit of historical fiction, too, so here’s hoping I love this one, too.
