5 On My TBR | Shorties

A couple of weeks ago we started doing the 5 On My TBR bookish meme and it was a lot of fun, so we want to bring this meme to the blog more regularly! This bookish meme is hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. For this week the prompt is Shorties. I don’t have that many short books on my TBR so let’s see which ones I managed to find on my shelves.

1.This Is How You Lose the Time War – Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone
pages: 209

I have been wanting to read this one since I bought it earlier this year, I believe it was March! The reviews are very positive and it’s a short book. I might read it in December so I can actually finish my Goodreads challenge! And that is going to be a real challenge this year haha.

2. Pet – Akwaeke Emezi
pages: 208

I bought this book when I saw it at Waterstones, I’ve since seen so many positive reviews. This has a black trans girl as it’s MC and I don’t think I’ve read a book like that before. I don’t want to know much more because it’s such a short book and I think something might be spoiled if I read more about it.

3. The Wrong Train – Jeremy de Quidt
pages: 224

I got this one in London and I actually forgot that it was so short. At some point I did start reading it for a bit but put it down in favor of something else. I might pick it up again because I can make my way through it super quickly I think. The book still sounds interesting but my hopes aren’t super high to be honest.

4. The Language of Thorns – Leigh Bardugo
pages: 279

Why haven’t I read this one yet? There are 6 short stories inside this book that are part of the Grishaverse. And as you might know, I’m a big fan of the Grishaverse. It would be wonderful if I can read this before Rule of Wolves releases. I also think I might’ve already read one or two of these stories so it’s time to dive back in!

5. Level Grind – Annie Bellet
pages: 407 (but it’s 4 books!)

Candyce and I went to Dutch Comic Con last year and that’s where we both bought this book. The author was on a panel and she was signing books afterward. I really liked hearing her talk and got excited about her book. This first book consists of 4 books in the series actually so the stories are all pretty short. I believe the first one is only 50 pages!

These are 5 short books on my TBR. Talking about them has gotten me pretty excited for them and I might just pick up some of these in December. I still have to read 10 books to finish my Goodreads Challenge so these could be very helpful! Do you like to read short books?

  1. I’ve wanted to read Pet for a long time! I really like this segment; it looks like a lot of fun!

  2. Wow, I love Leigh Bardugo but I had no clue she had a collection of short stories set in the Grishaverse! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am so beyond ashamed to say I don’t think I’ve read anything by Leigh Bardugo yet, even though I have like probably ALL of them on my TBR list right now and have heard SO MANY good things. But, that cover of The Language of Thorns immediately caught my attention though and now I’m thinking I better get my butt in gear and start reading some of her work!

  4. Thanks for including the page counts! I feel like a lot of people classify “short” books with vastly different page lengths so that was incredibly helpful!
