I have a big stack of books on my TBR, most are poetry collections, some are YA, and getting through all of them feels a little daunting.
If you haven’t watched my last video/read my last blog, where I talk about the few books I read in 2021, you might’ve missed my excuse for not slimming down my TBR. The reasoning was: my day job.
I work as an assistant secretary and social media coordinator, while also volunteering at two magazines and a community Discord, while also writing blogs for myself, editing videos, and running my small Etsy shop, so to say I’m busy would be an understatement.
Finding time to read, and keeping that time on a schedule, is difficult for me. But I plan to start a reading journal and allotting myself an hour or two in the evenings to read. The books I’m currently trying to work through or towards are:
- Honeybee by Trista Mateer
Honeybee is a wlw story/poetry collection that briefly touches on the loving before going into the confessional poetry of heartbreak. It’s a book I skimmed through digitally, but now that I have a physical copy, I plan to read it more intently now.
2. The Surrender Theory by Cailin Conlon
This collection goes over grief in both romanticc relationships and familial relationships. It’s currently pre-order only and comes out in February, but as soon as I get my copy, I’m going to non-stop be reading what I know is an amazing collection of poetry.
3. Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi
This is the last book in the Shatter Me series, a teen fiction novel with charachters going through a dystopian life with superhuman powers. I’ve read all the other books, very much loved and enjoyed, and I cannot wait to finish the series and see what emtional mess I will be left as.
4. On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
This book is one that was highly anticipated and reccommended to me alot. It’s a semi-autobiographical novel in the form of a letter written to a mother who is illiterate. I’ve read the first ten pages and already enjoying it.
What’s on your tbr?
