I’m so glad that I am getting to finally see the sun shine more and more again! If it was for me, winter could be much shorter – I love me a handfull of cozy snow days, but mostly I look forward to the days getting longer and warmer again.
Today’s prompt made me finally put together a tiny spring TBR that isn’t about my master thesis! Yay!
- Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
This was one of those classic strolling-thru-the-bookstore finds – the cover caught my eye immediately! If the story inside is as surreal, confusing and colorful as it promises, I’ll be very happy.
- Erasure by Percival Everett
This one was a present from a friend, and I think she’s gonna be really, really angry if I don’t finally read it! 😀 (But I am also really looking forward to it!)
- The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
In spring I often feel like reading Victorian and neo Victorian fiction, and this one was such a hype on instagram that it is about time I read it!
- Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
Now for an actual Victorian novel. I liked Tess of the D’Urbervilles, my first novel by Thomas Hardy very much and I am looking forward to immersing myself in his writing style – with all the wonderful descriptions of landscape – again!
- Math Made a Bit Easier by Larry Zafran
I actually liked maths in school, until in year 11 I got a pretty bad teacher and lost all motivation. Now I want to start from scratch again!
- The Dinosaur Hunters by Deborah Cadbury
I love dinosaurs and I love (natural) history, so this book on how the first fossils were discovered should be right up my ally.
- Zami – A New Spelling of My Name by Audre Lorde
I friend lent me this, since I am currently planning and preparing a legal name change.
- The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas
This one was given to me by a friend, too. I told her about how much I like campus novels, secret societies and mysteries, she immediately thought that this would be the perfect book for me.
- Tell It To The Moon by Siobhan Curham
A recommendation by my little sister! I’ll keep this one for a day when I’m very exhausted and just want to cozy up with an uplifting young adult novel.
- The Professor by Charlotte Brontë
Another Victorian book – and a campus novel! (I use the concept pretty loosely and include stories about high schools as long as they are written for a mainly adult audience.)
