I actually managed to read down my TBR quite a bit this month.
Manfried the Man by Major & Bastow
A cat who isn’t great at adulting and his pet man. At its core, it’s about growing up, taking responsibility, and making the best of your life. 5/5
The Hunger by Alma Katsu
A horror novel about the Donner Party. It stays true to the major events while adding an undercurrent of fear and malevolence. 4/5
Quiet Girl in a Noisy World by Debbie Tung
A delightful insight into an introvert’s inner world 5/5
Widow’s Point by Richard & Billy Chizmar
A haunted AF lighthouse with a bloody history and a famed paranormal investigator determined to spend the weekend. What could go wrong? 4/5
Perils Ahead by Jeremy Vinar
A fun and quick look at life inside a D&D dungeon. 5/5
This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
A beautiful and brutal story of a school shooting as told by four students. 5/5
And Now We Have Everything by Meaghan O’Connell
An honest memoir about a woman who became a mom before she was ready. I really appreciated her brutal honesty about her birth experience and feeling inadequate as a mom. However, O’Connell had a lot of privilege that she never acknowledged. 4/5
Comics You Should Read About Stuff And Things by Rosscott Nover
I’m somewhat acquainted with the artist so I was happy to finally see his second collection to come out. Fun and silly. 5/5
Dog’s Unleashed by Tamsin Pickeral
I got this from the B&N bargain section. It had a lot of interesting breeds not fully recognized by the AKC but needed to clarify what some of terms meant at the outset. 4/5
I’ve got my toe in several different books and I’d really like to wrap them all up.
This Will Be My Undoing by Morgan Jerkins
I’m about halfway through this library hold and am blown away.
Biketopia edited by Elly Blue
My indie book I started for my TBR Jar pick.
Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman
Getting Hygge With It said it was more of a western than a horror novel. I’m curious to see if that’s true about a comatose woman being buried alive.
TBR Jar pick: Hype
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara
This is the very buzzy book that helped catch the Golden State Killer. It is very hyped right now.
I’ve got some others I’m hoping to pick up but I don’t want to commit to anything just yet. Who knows what library holds will be coming in?
