#5OnMyTBR – Published Before 2000

#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 once again Monday and that means it’s time for another 5 On My TBR! This week’s topic had me struggling, I’m not gonna lie. I had to find five books on my TBR that were published before 2000! It’s not that I don’t have books on my TBR that were published that long ago. It’s just that most of the ones I could think of off the top of my head (Assassin’s Apprentice, Les Misérables) are books I’ve talked about over and over again on this blog. So I decided to root around for some older books that I don’t talk about nearly as much!

After a lot of combing through my TBR, I’ve found five that I really want to bump up my TBR pile.

#1. American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

This is one of those books that just sounds like it’s going to be quite the experience. It’s a glimpse into the mind of a psychopath going about his life. If the movie is any indication, it won’t shy away from some gruesome stuff. I’m excited to give it a try and see if I get on with the writing and the story. From the reviews I’ve glanced through, it is either going to be a hit or a huge miss, lol.

#2. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez

I honestly don’t remember what compelled me to add this to my TBR. But, having re-read the synopsis, I have to admit that I’m intrigued. A man that waits literally decades to re-confess his love to a woman? Sounds like it could either be real sweet or super creepy (leaning towards creepy… does that make me jaded?). Either way, I’m interested enough to read the book and find out for myself!
