Hello, reader!

Welcome to another lovely Monday! Or, if it’s not so lovely, welcome to end of another Monday! I’ve just had a long day at work and now I’m ready to unwind with a book. Before I get to that, though, it’s time for another 5 On My TBR. I’m actually pretty excited about this week’s theme. It’s monsters living among us, which has been left open to interpretation.

That being said, let’s see which five books from my TBR I can pick out!


#1. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

That’s why I’ve been dying (see what I did there?) to read this creepy tale about a boy who is raised by ghosts. There’s something about a dark and spooky middle grade that I just love. I’m sure this book with be no exception!

#2. Red Dragon by Thomas Harris

Either way, I’m intrigued to see how his story, and this series, begins.
