Happy Tuesday! The wonderful Sahi tagged me to do this tag, and it seemed like a lot of fun! Essentially, you spell your name with books on your TBR. Since “Ally” is really short, I thought I’d do my full name, Aleksandra.
All My Puny Sorrows by Mirian Toews: it’s one of my goals for 2020 (planning ahead) is to read more books by Canadian authors, and this is a modern classic. So I need to read it soon.
Lab Girl by Hope Jahren: I did a STEM undergrad, and have heard really good things about this book. I think I might get it for my mom for Christmas (don’t tell her that (mommy, if you’re reading, ignore this)).
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer: to be totally honest, I just love the title of this book.
Keep Sweet by Michele Domínguez Greene: I think this one is about a cult? Or an oppressive religion? Either way, a topic that I love reading.
Saving Fish From Drowning by Amy Tan: this is another Canadian author, and I bought this one from a used book sale earlier this summer. I’m super excited to read it!
All the Names They Used for God by Anjali Sachdeva: this is another one that I just love the title of.
Not That Bad by Roxanne Gay: I still haven’t read any Roxanne Gay, and I really need to soon.
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He: I’ve heard so many good things about this fantasy, and it sounds amazing. Also the cover is gorgeous and I’m always looking for diverse fantasy.
Rust & Stardust by T. Greenwood: a kidnapping? Based on a true story? With a title based on one of my favourite quotes? Yes please.
Asking For It by Louise O’Neil: a feminist book about rape culture? Again, yes please.
Thanks again, Sahi, for the tag! Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? Let me know!
