#5OnMyTBR – Pink Cover

#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 and this one I really had to search my TBR to fulfill, haha. That’s because the theme this week is books with pink covers. I, apparaently, don’t have a ton of pink books on my TBR. Honestly, it’s mostly black/blue/white! But, after scouring my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads, I finally found five books that I’m eager to read and have pink hues.

So, without further ado, let’s get to the list!


#1. The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar

I’m a little mad at myself for having not read this yet. I was so hyped when it came out and then I just… never picked it up. I even pre-ordered it! But this sapphic story about two girls running competing henna businesses for a school project is something that sounds like I would love it. I’m going to have to make this one a priority in 2022!

#2. Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Yeaaaahhhh. I’ve owned this book for, um, awhile. And I have had every intention of picking it up! It always seems to keep being pushed further down my list as other books (read: fantasy books) capture my interest. I do want to read this romance featuring the son of the President of the United States and a literal prince and I think the hype has calmed down enough that I won’t go into it with my expectations too high.

November 2021 Wrap Up

Hello, reader!

We’ve made it to the last month of 2021, which means it’s time to wrap up my reading in November. It was a weird one, I’ll tell ya that! I found myself in a strange, slumpy mood which means I didn’t read nearly as much as I usually do. Still, I’m happy about the books I did read because I enjoyed all of them. Seriously, I didn’t read anything under four stars.

But I’m getting ahead of myself, aren’t I? Let’s get to the post!

Book: Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen
