5 On My TBR | Magical Realism/Fabulism

Tracking your TBR is pretty important when it’s quite large, haha. Besides Down the TBR Hole and my Netgalley Backlist we needed something to track my physical TBR. 5 On My TBR is a way of keeping track. This is a meme hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. Every week there’s a different prompt for five on my TBR.

This week’s topic is Magical Realism/Fabulism. I think there are some controversies on which books should be magical realism, so I believe that’s why there is also the term fabulism. Especially without reading the books I’m not sure which books on my shelves are magical realism (or fabulism). So I’m going off of what is on Goodreads. It might not be totally correct but it is what I’m going with today haha. Let’s jump in!

1.The Shadow of the Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafon

This was the one I immediately thought off! I’m super excited to read it at some point haha. This is such a modern classic in my opinion and I’ve had it on my shelves for years now. I hope it is as good as I expect it to be!

2. Magonia – Maria Dahvana Headley

I actually have both books in this duology on my shelves. They were on sale at some point, but I have to admit I’m not that interested in them anymore… I might pick them up when I have more time (and less books to read haha) but they might as well be part of an unhaul some day.

3. The Love That Split the World – Emily Henry

To be honest, I only own this because it was a package deal with a couple of books I really wanted. This isn’t really my kind of book and it’s another one I might unhaul some day. I don’t have that much else to say about it haha.

4. Vassa In The Night – Sarah Porter

This is one I am still excited about! I got it in one of my first Owlcrate’s and have been interested in it ever since. Somehow I still haven’t read it though. The reviews are pretty mixed but I have good hopes. It sounds like a book I will enjoy!

5. All The Crooked Saints – Maggie Stiefvater

I adore Maggie’s Raven Cycle books and that’s mostly why I bought this one haha. The book sounds interesting but it might not totally be my thing. I do want to read it at some point but it’s not super high on my list.

This was a bit of a weird list haha. I’m not sure all of them belong on this list and I’m not super excited about all of them either haha. But some of these I do want to read badly! Have you read any of them? Any recommendations? Let me know in the comments!

One thought on “5 On My TBR | Magical Realism/Fabulism

  1. Vassa was pretty good, low key creepy. And I enjoyed Love that Split the World too. I would also really recommend, if you haven’t read it, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. High quality YA magical realism.
