#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!
It’s time for my first 5 on My TBR post of 2023! This week, the theme is picking something new, which, honestly, could mean a lot of things. I’ve decided to interpret it as books that I have newly arrived in my house and tell you all about my recent library haul 😁 Playing fast and loose with the prompt, but I think it works!
That being said, let’s jump into the list.
#1. Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree
I’m so excited I spotted this at my library when I was going to pick up some holds! The librarian said it had just come in and I’m glad I snagged it. This book has been all over the book community and it sounds like something I would love. Cosy fantasy is truly calling my name in 2023 and I’m quite happy to go along for the ride. Excited to give this one a go!
#2. Tread of Angels by Rebecca Roanhorse
Rebecca Roanhorse has swiftly become one of my favorite authors. I wanted to read Tread of Angels last year, but that clearly didn’t happen 😅 I was glad I spotted it when I was poking through the new books at the library. It’s a lot shorter than I was imagining, so I’m hoping I can squeeze it into my reads for January.
#3. Slappy, Beware! by R.L. Stine
This was the first book from my 12 friends, 12 recommendations TBR that I pulled from my TBR jar! I was a huge R.L. Stine fan when I was younger, though I leaned more towards Fear Street books. I read a few Goosebumps titles, but I didn’t snatch them up as much as his other spooky series. Still, I’m excited to give this one a go and relive my childhood a little bit.
#4. What Moves the Dead by T. Kingfisher
After reading Nettle & Bone last year, I knew I wanted to read more of T. Kingfisher’s work. I loved her authorial voice and how it was a mix of spooky and humorous, at least in that book. I’ve heard this one leans more into the ‘spooky’, and I’m here for it! This is also a retelling of an Edgar Allan Poe story and, honestly, say less. I’m in!
#5. The Fine Print by Lauren Asher
As my journey in the romance genre continues, I keep picking up books with new tropes to see if they might be my flavor. I also am very susceptible to hype when it comes to romance and that’s how this book caught my eye. I’ve heard about this book all over the place! When I spotted it at the library, I figured, why not? We’ll see how I feel about a work place romance with rich people involved. I’m certainly intrigued!
What are some new books on your TBR? Have you read any of the books on mine? Let me know in the comments!
And, as always, happy reading!
