5 On My TBR | Literary Fiction

We already try keeping track of our TBR in different ways, but it’s also fun to look at them in themes. That’s one of the reasons why the bookish meme 5 On My TBR is so much fun. This bookish meme is hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. For this week the prompt is Literary Fiction. This is not a genre I read a lot so I had to do a Goodreads deep dive to see if I had any on my shelves haha. And I managed to find a couple! So let’s jump in.

The End of Men – Christina Sweeney-Baird

This is actually an eARC I have. And I did plan on reading it before the release day but that plan went sideways haha. I do still want to read this as I sounds amazing. A virus that kills only men ravages the earth and only women remain. What would a world without men look like? I can’t wait to read Christina’s imagination of this.

The Shadow of the Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafón

This one has been on my TBR for ages!! I really do want to read it at some point but I don’t think I’ll pick it up anytime soon. This is one of those books I want to read but don’t actually make time for haha.

The Song of Achilles – Madeline Miller

I’ve heard amazing things about The Song of Achilles. Everyone seems to love this! It’s historical and I love settings like that. I also love to read more about greek mythology so I’m very excited to read this soonish haha.

The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern

This is another one I would like to read soon. It seems like this might be something I’d really enjoy. I’ve seen mixed reviews but from what I gathered I might fall into the love camp! It’s a pretty big book so I don’t think I’ll be reading it super soon but we’ll see haha.

The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas

This one is actually on my TBR cart! So I might be reading this one quite soon. I’m a bit ashamed I haven’t read it yet to be honest. It’s probably going to break my heart and I’m not sure if I can handle that right now. However, it’s a very important read so hopefully soon!

These are 5 books on my TBR that are tagged literary fiction on Goodreads haha. So if you don’t agree with any on the list blame it on Goodreads ;). Which one should I read first? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Song of Achilles should be first. It’s one I’m most looking forward to. But, The Hate U Give could also be amazing. I’m always shocked that we have so many books in common. 😀

    1. Haha, love that fact! And I think those two are probably highest on my TBR to read <3

  2. I really liked The Night Circus! What’s important to remember about that one is that the plot is actually pretty thin on the ground. You aren’t reading it for the plot, you read it for the circus! It is enchanting, vivid and very special. I thought it was wonderful! I still really want to read The Song of Achilles too!

    1. Thank you! I don’t mind a thin plot as long as I enjoy the characters and the setting so I’m not super worried but it’s good to be reminded again!

    1. Me neither! I really had to think about this list!! Hope we both end up enjoying The Song of Achilles <3
