#5OnMyTBR – Epistolary

#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 time for another 5 On My TBR! And today’s theme is something I don’t talk about nearly enough for how much I love them… epistolary books! What are epistolary books, you ask? According to Google, it is a work of fiction that is written in the form of letters or other documents. I do love a novel that is written in an unconventional format, so these books are right up my alley! Which means I had quite a few on my TBR to choose from, lol.

Let’s see who made the list!

#1. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

This book has been on my TBR for what feels like forever. I’ve even stuck it on a couple of readathon TBRs and, yet, it remains firmly unread. It’s told through a series of emails and all different types of documents, which is what originally caught my interest. The fact that everyone seems to love it has kept it around this long. I am going to read this, and hopefully soon!

#2. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

This is one of those books I’m embarrassed I haven’t read yet. I gotta be in the right headspace to read the journal of this young Jewish girl hiding in Holland during WWII. To think what she and her family must have endured… it’s a tragic but important story and I will read it one day. I even have a copy on one of these bookshelves, so I’ll hopefully be picking this one up sooner rather than later.
