#5OnMyTBR – Family

#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 time for another 5 On My TBR! This week’s theme is pretty broad. We’re talking about books about family. There are so many books on my TBR that could fit this category! I’ve decided to go with books that really focus on family drama or family dynamics. There were still a ton of those to choose from, but I’ve finally narrowed it down to five I want to feature.

With that being said, let’s jump in!


#1. The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett

This family drama featuring two Black sisters has been on my TBR since it was released. I don’t read a lot of literary fiction, but this sounds like something I could love. It also sounds like it might break my heart… we shall see! It’s the story of sisters who lead very different lives. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book, so I hope to get to it soon!

#2. The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

Spoiler alert: all the books on this post are literary/historical fiction. For someone who doesn’t read from those genres a lot, I certainly have a lot on my TBR 😂 This is a book that I got solely because I loved another book by this author. It does sound interesting, though. It follows a family surviving off the grid in Alaska. I can only imagine there will be plenty of drama involved.
