Lessons in Chemistry was such a good book.


2024 TBR list starts off with a George H.W. Bush comparative Presidency series:

The Bushes (Peter/Rochelle Schweizer)
The Family (Kitty Kelley)
All The Best (George H.W. Bush)
Barbara Bush (Barbara Bush)
The Witch of Painted Sorrows (M.J. Rose)
The Last Chairlift (John Irving)
The Little Blue Book (Bishop Ken Untener)
White House Clubhouse (Sean O’Brien)
Montreal’s Expo '67 (Bill Cotter)

I am the rare reader who does not like either Austen or the Brontës! I do like Ayn Rand; most readers find her books a slog but I loved them.
How about children’s classics? Little House on the Prairie series; A Wrinkle in Time, The Phantom Tollbooth, Little Women, Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, Grapes of Wrath…I loved them all!

I read The Dressmakers of Auschwitz in 2023. It was very interesting. It reads kind of differently. It does bounce back and forth a bit amongst the women who are documented and is more like a biography than reading like a story. I did enjoy it a lot and loved seeing some of the old photographs. Hope you enjoy it!

I’m (hopefully :crossed_fingers:) getting back into the swing of reading after a work+university slump. So instead of my super long and ambitious grand TBR, I’m starting “gently” with (some of) the series I started in the past 2 years and haven’t finished yet.

Here’s a glimpse into my TBR for this year. There are so many exciting new releases coming up.

I haven’t planned out all of my TBR yet but I have a short list -

The Battle Drum by Saara El-Arifi
We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal
Hunt on Dark Waters by Katee Robert
Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Throne of the Fallen by Kerri Maniscalso

Haha at least I don’t feel alone now in finding Emma to be a slog. I’m still going to try at least 2 more of hers though and see if I change my mind about Austen. And I’m interested to see if my love of Jane Eyre was an anomaly or if I’ll like more Brontës.

Big fan of some of those! As you saw I included Matilda and The Little Prince with my classics. I’m all over the place with genres. One day I’m reading Emma, then it’s The Broken Earth Trilogy, then A Little Prince, then a memoir, etc.

Are you on Goodreads? I’d be interested in following you on there and getting inspiration and adding to my ever growing TBR list.

I have 74 books right now on my TBR list. Too many to list but they include authors Sue Grafton, J. D. Robb, Nora Roberts, Elizabeth Peters (Amelia Peabody), Ellis Peters (Bro. Cadfael), Charlaine Harris, Preston and Child (Pendergast) The NKJ Bible, and I hope to read a number of non Fiction books as well. Happy Reading to all!

Of course we can be Goodreads friends! Here is my GR link: Kyle Wendy Skultety ( (1,542 books)
and here is a link to my book blog:
Happy 2024! and may all your books be wonderful…

Ive been slowly making my way through the warrior cats series, this is the final stretch

Requested. Here’s mine if it’s easier. GR can be weird sometimes with adding people I’ve found.

It is impossible to make a TBR for the entire year! I can barely stick to my plan when I make a monthly TBR, haha. My only true plan is to work on finishing some series (mainly Throne of Glass and The MurderBot Diaries), read some Stephen King, resume my Kindle Unlimited membership at some point, and try to fit as many of my 1,000+ TBR books to match this year’s bingo boards as I can!

My full TBR can be found on my Goodreads! Devon (booksandbraids) (3,317 books)

Like so many others, I don’t commit to a set TBR list for a month, let alone a year! I’m definitely a mood reader [except for NetGalley ARCs—those I read when they need to be read!]. Here’s a very tiny list of books I suspect I’ll read in the near future.
