#5OnMyTBR – Siblings

#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!

We’re at the start of another week, which means it is time for another 5 On My TBR! This one seems apropos since yesterday was National Siblings Day. That’s right, the topic for this week is books featuring siblings! It took me a surprisingly long time for me to round up books for this list. I realized I read a lot of books where the main character has no family. Probably because I love the “found family” trope so much. But the ones I did round up are five books I’m eager to read!

That being said, let’s get to the post!

#1. So Many Beginnings by Bethany C. Morrow

I can’t have a list about siblings and not talk about this Little Women retelling! I’m very interested in all the classics remixes that have been coming out recently, but this one is definitely at the top of the list. I really enjoyed Little Women when I read it, so a remix featuring young Black girls seems like something I would love! I’m excited to give it a go and I’m hoping to pick it up soon.

#2. The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett

I remember when it seemed like everyone in the bookish community was reading (and raving about!) this book. That’s the whole reason this book ended up on my TBR, if I’m honest 😅 The hype got me! But this tale of two white-passing Black sisters and how they live their lives does sound fascinating! I got a copy of the book from Book of the Month and I’m eager to read it. I feel like I’ll need to be in a good head-space, though.
