Happy Tuesday friends! My life has been crazy! Between applying to summer internships to trying to finding housing for next year I have been quite busy! I am happy that I have a bit of a break for the next 24 hours which I am going to devote to reading. These are a collection of books that I have heard a lot about but I am not sure if I want to read them for various reasons. Also, if you have read any of these please let me know what you thought of them!
House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
I have been hearing a lot about this on twitter and it is giving me creepy mermaid vibes but I have read the synopsis a few times and I am not seeing the mermaid part.
A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
This book was on my TBR for over winter break because it sounds like a fabulous and very timely novel but the main thing that is holding me back is that I have not been enamored with Mafi’s work in the past. I read Nevermore and wasn’t really into it and I tried reading Shatter Me and couldn’t start it. Maybe third times the charm?
The Entire Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan
I am a huge fantasy lover but these books are so long and I have tried reading obnoxiously long fantasy books and it just doesn’t work but they sound so good! Also there is the show (or is it a movie?) coming out and I want to see that and I am one of the subscribers to the philosophy of reading before watching.
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine
I love the concept of this book but I am not exactly one for murder mysteries.
Queen of Air and Darkness and all of the other Shadowhunter novels that I haven’t read yet by Cassie Clare
I was not a fan of LoS but I also want to finish this series because I have spent so much time with this series. However, I don’t want to spend my time reading something that I am not going enjoy.
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
This is on my TBR but it is mostly there to remind me that it exists. This, frankly, a really weird book on top of being rather long so I am not sure if it is worth it.
Legendary by Stephaine Garber
Like QoA&D, I have this on my TBR already because I read Caraval. I didn’t fall in love with Caraval and I am not interested in reading something that I will not enjoy hence the do I or don’t I.
Enchantée by Gita Trelease
This book sounds perfect for me but I have seen a few negative reviews from people who are share similar reading tastes with. I am trying to decide if I should take the leap of faith and just read it or pass.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Hugo
I feel like this book was on all of the best lists last year but I am not sure about the subject. This type of historical fiction is a bit iffy because I am not a big fan of memiors and biographies. I know that is more fictional but still realistic. Maybe I just need to get it from the library and dive in.
