What’s on your isolation TBR?
A while ago I was asked by someone for book recommendations which I realised were mostly by Aussie authors. I made a post on this called ‘Book Recommendations For When Your TBR is Looking Thicc‘. Probably not the best title if I want my post to be found on Google searches but I found it funny.
*If you want to check out that post, it is linked above. All books are available on Kindle and I have included the links to purchase them as they’re all definitely worth a read.
Writing that post made me think of all the books I want people to read, so I made another list. This one, larger and sorted by genre as I know not everyone is exclusively into Fantasy, Contemporary and Sci-Fi novels under the Young-Adult umbrella.
Books To Add To Your Quarantine TBR:
Sorted by Genre!
Dystopian: More Than This by Patrick Ness
Historical: Fifth Avenue Artists Society by Joy Calloway
Adult: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Fantasy: don’t make me choose… y’all know I want to say Shadowhunters! This is my Shadowhunters faux pas (am I even using that phrase right?).
Sci-Fi: Illuminae Files by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
YA: This is another post altogether.
LGBTQ+: Once & Future (duh) by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy
Alternative Format: All Of This Is True by Lygia Day Peñaflor
Graphic novel: Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
Anthology: How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan
Mental Health (please exercise self-care): I Had Such Friends by Meg Gatland-Veness
I do hope you enjoyed this post. Maybe you found your next read in this list, or I somehow inspired you to add to your TBR in self-isolation.
Please Remember: if you are purchasing books during this time, please consider supporting your local bookstore. Most are staying open, doing online and over the phone orders. This will help them stay open when all of this Corona/ COVID-19 mess is over. I’m sure they would really appreciate it.
Stay inside, stay happy, stay healthy and know that I love and appreciate you all for reading my content xxx
See you back here on Monday’s (book reviews), Wednesday’s (storytime/ writing updates) and Saturday’s (other bookish content).
