Boy, I’m excited for my books I have planned to read this month. I know I’m going to be bogged down with classes and projects at work, but I think that I’ve been managing to stay organized enough that I’ll be able to read a decent amount of books. I’m not going to plan for much, however, because I want to keep things nice and stress-free.
So, here is what I plan to read this month (we’ll see if that actually happens!):
I picked this book to read for a “Reading Women 2021 Challenge” prompt, a book by an Arab woman in translation. This book is a work of speculative fiction, maybe even alternative history, about an Egypt ruled by an authoritarian power known as “The Gate” and everyone must queue before “The Gate” to ask permission for even everyday things, but “The Gate” never opens. I’m definitely curious to see how this book is. It looks to be a large cast and quite thought-provoking. I hope I’ll enjoy it!
This has been on my TBR for a while, but I’m finally getting around to reading it! It’s also to fulfill a “Reading Women” prompt, this one for a book by a Trans author. I’m excited to read it, I’ve heard a lot of good things, plus it’s been nominated for and won a lot of awards. I’m also happy that I’ll be striking another book off my ever-growing TBR pile!
I’ve been patiently waiting for this book to come out so that I can read it. Now, my library copy is finally here and I can! I’m really happy to be reading another romantic, beautiful-sounding book that also involves K-Pop and all things Korean culture. This book just sounds so cute! I follow the author on Twitter and am so happy I finally have the chance to read her work! I have a couple other of her books on my TBR as well, but I really want to read this one first.
My jaw dropped when I saw this book pop up on NetGalley – I couldn’t believe Nix returned to his Sabriel series, a series I love dearly! I am lucky enough to have the ARC and I’m super excited to read about Sabriel’s parents – and, based on the cover, see more of Mogget! I’m super curious, since her parents feature so little in the first Sabriel book – her mother dies giving birth to her! So I’m really excited to read more about them. I hope this one is good!
