So… I haven’t read anything recently. Well, not just recently. According to my Goodreads reading challenge, I’m 10 books behind schedule.
The last proper book I’ve read is a chick-lit “The Wedding Date” and before that I read “Feminism is for everybody” by Bell Hooks.
If you do not count the adorable children’s book published by HBO’s “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver”, “A Day In The Life Of Marlon Bundo“. It is a story about Marlon Bundo, VP Mike Pence’s bunny, that falls in love with another boy bunny and wants to marry him. If you haven’t already, buy the book . All proceeds go to the Trevor Project and AIDS United.
But now I’m here to share my TBR for the month of June!!
“A Higher Loyalty” by James Comey
I’m obsessed with American Politics. Obsessed. I talk about it constantly. Even on here. And so when the news that the former FBI director, fired by Donald Trump and kickstarter of the Mueller investigation, had written a book, I KNEW I had to get my hands on it.
I’m already halfway through and it is an incredibly interesting story. Not just regarding what happened with Trump, but his life story is pretty gripping. I read almost 150 pages in one sitting. Can’t wait to get to the Donald Trump part!
“Everyday Sexism” by Laura Bates
It’s a collection of different topics all centered around sexism and discrimination against women. Along with data and a lot of information, it narrates a huge variety of stories told by a multitude of women through the internet. In emails, Facebook posts, tweets and more.
At the same time, it’s both a fascinating and horrifying reading. Can’t wait to finish it. I’m almost at the “half” mark.
Not onto the books I haven’t started yet:
“Spring Awakening” by Frank Wedekind
I watched NBC’s 10-episode show “Rise” and the kids were staging this play. After listening to the songs and getting a general vibe about what the show is about, I decided I wanted to read the text.
I’ve also tried to find the DVD of the 2006 musical with Lea Michelle and Jonathan Groff, but so far no luck.
“The Hellfire Club” by Jake Tapper
I like CNN anchor Jake Tapper. I don’t get CNN here, but I’ve seen him multiple times on YouTube clips and on Stephen Colbert’s and this book seems interesting.
It’s set in the 1950s, in Washington DC and it tells the story of Charlie Marder, a newly appointed congressman that starts uncovering secret after secret.
I don’t read much historical fiction (like, not at all) but this sounded fun.
Now thing start getting a little tricky. I don’t know what to read. I have a huge TBR but nothing stands out! I have thrillers, YA, chick-lit, politician’s biographies (Hillary Clinton’s), books about feminism, politics, Queen Victoria and so much more!
But I can’t decide! There is so much crap in here. I don’t even now what I put some of these books in there.
I browsed through it and I found some books I might want to read, but please let me know if you have any recommendation. Any book you like. Maybe some poetry. I am open to anything (expect maybe sci-fi.).
So, here is my TBR.
If you want to have a look at it and recommend something I have already chosen, or leave a comment with your personal advice.
PLEASE, GIVE ME RECOMMENDATIONS! I DESPERATELY NEED THEM!
The books I might read this month:
- Ronan Farrow: “War On Peace”
- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “Americanah”
- Kevin Kwan: “Crazy Rich Asians”
- Hillary Clinton: “Living History”
- Vera Britain: “Testament Of Youth”
- Celeste Ng: “Little Fires Everywhere”
What are you going to read this month? Have you got any summer plans? I’m going to the beach for 2 weeks! I can’t wait!
p.s. I’m not sure if I like the header image or if I hate it with all my heart. Let me know. I need opinions.
