This year I’ve decided to take my TBR in a different direction by creating a small jar full of notes with book titles that I am yet to read. The idea is that at the beginning of each month I’ll pull out three books and make them the priority before delving into any other titles I want to for the remaining. I know I’ll need to read more than three a month, considering my Goodreads Challenge this year has risen to 60 books, but I’ll also be reading Netgalley, Audible and Readers First titles at the same time. Already I’m noticing a change in attitude towards reading, I can’t wait to get started!
1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Lara Jean’s love life is about to go from imaginary to out of control.
Lara Jean Song keeps love letters in a hat box her mother gave her – one for every boy she’s ever loved. She can say anything she wants, because the letters are for her eyes only. Until the day they’re sent out…
2. The Disappeared by C.J. Harper
Jackson’s life is perfect; he’s top of his class, wants for nothing and is destined to be part of the leadership that runs the country. But when a violent incident leaves Jackson badly beaten and his best friend dead, everything changes. Suddenly, his teachers claim not to know him, his records are deleted… Jackson doesn’t exist anymore.
Dumped in an academy, where teachers are kept in cages and being a good fighter is all that matters, Jackson realises that to survive he needs to adapt, and fast. And, as he learns the academy’s terrible secrets, Jackson discovers his whole life has been based on lies: the leadership is corrupt to the core and they’re coming after him.
Time is running out. Can Jackson destroy the man at the heart of it all before he makes Jackson disappear for good?
3. Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich
Dear Evan Hansen,
Today’s going to be an amazing day and here’s why…
When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family’s grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend.
Suddenly, Evan isn’t invisible anymore–even to the girl of his dreams. And Connor Murphy’s parents, with their beautiful home on the other side of town, have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his closest friend. As Evan gets pulled deeper into their swirl of anger, regret, and confusion, he knows that what he’s doing can’t be right, but if he’s helping people, how wrong can it be?
