As I’ve mentioned before, one of my important reading goals of 2023 is shrinking my physical TBR. Sometimes it’s hard to think of what books I still have or subjects I want to read about. So we needed a way to keep track of this. 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 more than one author. I know I have some books written by more than one author, but I’ll definitely have to think about it. Let’s take a look!
The Agathas – Kathleen Glasgow & Liz Lawson
The Agathas is a book I actually started reading. I was enjoying it, but then got sick and got distracted when I started reading again. This is young adult thriller that has the main characters using Agatha Christie’s works to try and help solve everything. The sequel releases soon I believe, so it’s time to get going on this one!
My Imaginary Mary – Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, & Jodi Meadows
I’m shocked I haven’t read My Imaginary Mary if I think about it, haha. I’ve loved all of the books these authors have written together. It’s great how they take history and give it a twist and add some magic. There’s quite a bit of humor! The third book in this trilogy doesn’t release until next year, so I have a little time to catch up.
Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy
Because You Love to Hate Me is a YA anthology and a few authors have stories in here that I love: V.E. Schwab, Marissa Meyer, Adam Silvera, and Renée Ahdieh. We get spins on stories we know, but from the villain’s POV. Short stories tend to be hit or miss for me and I think that’s why it’s been taking me awhile to read this one.
If I’m Being Honest – Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka
Always Never Yours is a book I’ve previously read by this author duo and I enjoyed it. So I added If I’m Being Honest on my shelf. They actually have quite the backlist, so I’ll have to slowly get through them. Our main character is a bit much and vows to tame herself to win back her crush, but a romance may bloom with someone else.
Kings of Quarantine – Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti
So I’m still not sure how to feel about books that have a pandemic, but I love this author duo. Also, this book takes place at a boarding school. My favorite setting!! It’s a big book (per usual with these authors, haha) and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. Kings of Quarantine was a present from my secret Santa, so I need to get to it soon.
This was actually harder than I expected. I have less books by multiple authors that I thought I did. Have you read any of these? If so, which one should I pick up first? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
