Don't ask me anymore how many books there are in my TBR (To Be Read) file because the number is overwhelming (both print and digital) so let's just stick to these ten that have moved up to the top of the pile for one reason or another.
And yes, I'm the kind of reader that can read several books at the same time. Well, not literally of course, but you know what I mean.
So in the next few weeks, I plan to finish most, if not all, of these. Re-reads and re-starts included.
1. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
I actually haven't bought a copy yet, but tomorrow is the day. And when anything Gaiman comes out, all other books fall to the wayside.
2. BASAG - Bachelor in Nursing a Broken Heart, Major in Moving On by Prexy Calvario (finish reading)
For work. Also, you know, subject matter wise, this is my wheelhouse. From the little I've browsed already, so many people who have gone through heartbreaks will be able to relate and laugh with her and maybe even help in their moving on process.
3. Better At Weddings Than You by Mina V. Esguerra
The book isn't out yet, but I got an ARC and so I need to get on it while everyone else (well, except those who also got an ARC) will be waiting for it. Mina's books were my first exposure to Filipino romance in English and since then I've been supporting #romanceclass books, both print and ebooks. And this is also in my wheelhouse as it involves wedding planning and thirty-something characters (but for adults only please!). You can actually pre-order it already on Amazon.
4. The Very Good Gospel by Lisa Sharon Harper (finish reading)
I started it already last year but in the middle of it, it got to be too real and too heavy for me. But it is such an eye-opening book so i know I need to finish it soon and then right about it (especially as our bookshop only has limited copies)
5. American Gods by Neil Gaiman (finish re-reading)
Because the TV series is about to start!!! Sa April 30 na!
6. Miss Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why
Because i need to go back to Miss Kamala and her world. Not since Buffy have I been invested in a teenage girl and her trials and tribulations as she tries to save the world.
7. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls
My physial copy will arrive by May but the ebook that I got for supporting their crowdsourcing campaign will tide me over. And yes, this is supposedly a children's book, but hey, learning about awesome women should not have an age limit!
8. Disarming Scripture: Cherry-Picking Liberals, Violence-Loving Conservatives, and Why We All Need to Learn to Read the Bible Like Jesus Did by Derek Flood (finish reading)
The title caught my attention and the writing style is not for the uber conservative Christian (unless you're open minded) and it's "theological" books like this that I really enjoy reading.
9. The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks by Sam Maggs
I've had this in my Audible library for the longest time and I don't understand why I haven't read/listened to it yet. So now's a good place to start, as I slowly walk from my house to the office.
10. Four Weddings And A Sixpence
I need my Julia Quinn fix, even though it's just one short story. I need a light romance read, which gets me through tough days, really.
