#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!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday. It’s currently snowing and sleeting outside right now, so I’m very glad that I’m not working today and already ran all my errands. This is the perfect weather to stay inside and curl up with a book! Speaking of, it’s time for another 5 On My TBR where I talk about books that I want to read. The theme for this week is books with multiple POVs and I have a lot of books that can fit.
So let me show which five I decided to pick!
#1. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I’m embarrassed to admit how long this book (and the series) have been on my TBR 😬 This fantasy revolves around two people living in a very military focused world. It is a pretty beloved series and I have major FOMO because I still haven’t read it! I do own this book, though, so hopefully I can get to it this year since I’m trying to mainly read from my owned books.
#2. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
This is another book and author that I’ve been meaning to try for awhile. It is set during a devastating pandemic and we’re following a troupe of Shakespearian actors. I’ve heard nothing but praise for this book and the author, which is why I’ve been intrigued. I also love that we’re following a bunch of actors in the end times. It can only add to the drama, haha. I’m hoping to pick this one up sooner rather than later!
#3. Scythe by Neal Shusterman
I have this problem where I hear about a hyped book so much that I stick it on my TBR and then promptly forget about. Just refer to pretty much this entire list for proof 😂 But this is one that I added not just because of hype, but because I found the premise fascinating. This is a world where no one dies unless they are killed by a Reaper. The book follows two Reapers-in-training and I can only imagine the moral discussions involved.
#4. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
This was definitely a hype add, though I am also down to read any fantasy that features Black characters and is written by a Black author. Making up for my childhood, here! I’ve heard great things about this book (though not so much the second…) and that makes me so excited to pick this up! This follows a young woman trying to bring magic back to her world and fight the powers-that-be. It sounds incredible!
#5. The Guest List by Lucy Foley
Lucy Foley is an author that has been on my TBR for awhile. I finally picked up one of her books last year, The Paris Apartment, and found myself really enjoying it! Now I’m eager to pick up stuff from her backlist and this book is at the top of my list. It’s set on an island and people are slowly being picked off one by one. There are secrets and murder and sounds like it’s gonna be a great read.
What are some books with multiple POVs on your TBR? Have you read any of the books on mine? Let me know in the comments!
And, as always, happy reading!
