#5OnMyTBR – Characters in Their 20s

#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 though not on my usual day. I had a blog tour stop yesterday and I like those posts to have their own 24 hours on the blog before posting new stuff. Thus, the 5 On My TBR was pushed back to today! The theme for this week is books with characters in their 20s. Ngl, I had to look up a Goodreads list to see what books on my TBR featured 20 year olds 😂 And who knows how accurate it is, but I’m sticking with my choices!

That being said, let’s see what’s made the list!


#1. Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams

I’ve been meaning to read this book for quite awhile. Why haven’t I read it yet? Mostly because it’s in a genre that is very hit or miss for me. It takes a lot for me to really love a contemporary, but I think this book has what it takes! I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews, but I’m eager to follow Queenie’s journey as she tries to figure who she is and who she wants to be. Also, I freakin’ love the cover!

#2. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Sticking with the orange theme, here’s a book that has been on my TBR for a long time for a very different reason. I mean, she thicc and I’m scared. But, there are dragons, sooooo… I’ve heard so many great things about this book and I do love the fact that it’s a standalone. I have so many series going right now, y’all, I don’t need another one in my life. Still, I’m excited to get to this one once I can suck it up and get over the page count.
