An exploration of my TBR

I am so glad to have finished reading Jane Eyre, you have no idea. I have finished the whole unit of work on the book and now I’m looking at a multi-disciplinary (Classical Studies, Art History, English Literature & Creative Writing) unit on ‘what makes a Classic’ and I’m very excited that we’re looking at Homer.

Then I’ve got two mini-essays of 600 words to write on both Twelfth Night and Jane Eyre – these are due on Thursday and I’ve taken Monday & Tuesday off work in case I need them to finish the essays. That will be the end of the English Literature block and you will hear me breathe a huge sigh of relief. I love to read (obviously) but not to analyze and generally, the novels looked at in these courses are not my style. Give me horror, sci-fi, urban fantasy, and chick-lit any day of the week.

After spending two weeks reading Jane Eyre, I’m looking forward to picking up books of my own choosing again. I’m currently reading Life Support by Tess Gerritsen and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. As well as way too many others – see here for the full list! (I have ADHD, I can’t read just one book!)

Next up to read are Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo, The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, and The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner

There are so many books on my TBR that I’m super excited to read as well – a lot of these are re-reads just because I got into a reading slump and figured re-reading books I know I love might help kick-start and reignite my love for reading (spoiler alert – it worked!)
Patricia Briggs – Moon Called
Stephen Fry – Mythos
Rick Riordan – Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian
Chloe Neill – Some Girls Bite
Madeline Miller – Song Of Achilles
Gail Carriger – Soulless
Mary Beard – SPQR
Jim Butcher – Storm Front
Jonathan Sims – Thirteen Storeys
Jaimie Admans – The Wishing Tree Beside The Shore

It’s also worth noting that my physical TBR is three piles, a shelf and two bookcases – there are also like 2000 books on my Goodreads ‘Want To Read’ and about 3000 books on my Kindle so I’m going to need a couple of lifetimes to get through them all and it is awesome
