It’s a lovely day for a lovely TBR list roundup, don’t you think? Here are the latest additions to some of our lists!
I’m currently reading The Women in the Castle, by Jessica Shattuck, for an upcoming book tour review at the end of this month. My current audio book is Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto, which so far is ok — I loved Commonwealth more, though. (Side note: Joli reviewed Bel Canto here.) I’ve also added Hillbilly Elegy, by J.D. Vance, and It’s Okay to Laugh, by Nora McInerny Purmort, to my TBR list this week. Hillbilly Elegy has gotten quite a bit of acclaim lately, so I’m excited to begin that one. Janna just finished It’s Okay to Laugh, so that addition is based on her feedback. I also love Nora and the message she’s putting out into the world, so can’t wait to add some more Nora to my life.
If you’ve checked out our Instagram in the last few days, you’ll see that I somehow acquired 10 books in two weeks and they’re all sitting on my night stand waiting to be read. I’m currently reading The Sellout by Paul Beatty for a book club and there’s bound to be lots of discussion. Broken Angels by Gemma Liviero is on my short list, and based on Aubrey’s review, I think I’ll love it. I have about 8 more books to list, but two is all I can tackle for a lazy Sunday.
I just started Neil Gaiman’s American Gods for an upcoming book tour in May. I chose it because it’s out of my wheelhouse, but so far I’m getting sucked in! I’ve also been on a big non-fiction kick lately, so I’ve added Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace by Anne Lamott – I’ve never read anything by her so I picked that one out. The other non-fiction book I added is Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time by Andrew Forsthoefel.
I’m looking forward to catching up on my Book of the Month Club selections. I’ve got Rich and Pretty by Rumaan Alam and Exit West by Mohsin Hamid on deck. I also snagged the third book in Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series, The Cruelest Month, for my Kindle.
