I am not a fan of a strict TBR. I suck at following them, but I also like having a TBR and an idea of what I want to read. Does that make sense? Probably not. Instead of sharing with you a strict March TBR, I’m instead going to share with you books that I have already started and want to finish.
I am a fool; a fool who starts so many books and then gets overwhelmed with how many books I have started and then stop reading all of them. I have a short attention span at the moment, so this is making it even easier for me to abandon books. I want to also point out, I didn’t stop reading these halfway through because I was bored of them or because I don’t plan on returning to them. I just got distracted by something else.
Autoboyography by Christina Lauren
Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah.
But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity.
It turns out, Tanner is only partly right: four months is a long time. After all, it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother, the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class. And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with him.
I started this book in January, and I was really enjoying it! I just got distracted by writing some poetry and then for some reason never picked it up again. I got half way through it, so hopefully I can finish it soon before I forget the first half of the book.
Dear Girl by Aija Mayrock
From a celebrated activist and spoken-word performer comes a debut poetry collection that takes readers on an empowering, lyrical journey through being a woman in today’s society, exploring issues like suicide, sexual assault, self-image, and healing.
I was kindly provided with an e-arc of this book via NetGalley. I am almost finished with this one, so hopefully I can finish it this week and get the review up soon! I have really been enjoying it so far.
A Strangely Wrapped Gift by Emily Juniper
In A Strangely Wrapped Gift, Juniper takes heavy, emotional raw material and weaves it into stunning, relatable poetry you’ll long to share with friends and loved ones. This collection is a reminder that broken pieces make the most beautiful mosaics, and that all of us possess the power to bloom even after a harsh winter.
I was kindly provided with an e-arc of this book via NetGalley. I’m not very far into this book, but from what I can tell so far it is a poetry collection about OCD and other mental health issues, which I am always looking for representaiton in, especially in poetry.
Do you also have trouble staying focused on one book, or is that just me?
