I’m baaaack! I’ve been MIA over the recent holidays as we were travelling down to spend time with my family over Christmas. We’re still down in Georgia, but I’m feeling much better now that I’ve spent the last couple of days doing basically nothing, lol. It’s been lovely and now I’m ready to get back to blogging. And what better way than to do this week’s 5 On My TBR!
This week’s topic is a good one for the end of the year. I’ll be talking about five books I had planned to read in 2021. Now, there are a lot more than just five books from my 2021 TBR that I never picked up because of who I am as a person 😅 But I’ve narrowed it down to the top five I really wanted to get to that will be high up on my 2022 “want to read” list. Let’s jump on in!
#1. The Burning God by R.F. Kuang
That’s right. I still haven’t finished The Poppy War series. Part of this is because I just don’t want it to end! It’s so well-written and compelling that I’ve become quite attached to the characters and the story. Rin is a disaster and I want to read about her forever! The other part is I know this book is gonna hurt… Still, I’m finishing this series in 2022, no matter what!
#2. Within These Wicked Walls by Lauren Blackwood
I read the first page of this book a couple months ago and instantly knew I wanted to read more. Unfortunately, I was in the middle of a ton of other books at the time, so this was set aside and never revisited. That will change in 2022! This is a Jane Eyre retelling featuring a Black protagonist. It sounds incredible! I can’t wait to pick this one back up so I can lose myself in it.
