My TBR list for the books I want to read/finish in September 2017!
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (currently (as of 08/25/2017) on page 582 out of 962! I am absolutely loving this book so far and it might even make it up there on the list of my favorite books ever!
- The Complete Stories by Flannery O’Connor
- The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
That’s it for my TBR this month! I’ve not been on top of my game lately as far as reading a lot, which is why I kept my TBR list to only three books. Hopefully since the list is so short, I’ll be able to read them all before next month.
Comment and let me know if you’ve read any of these and what your thoughts are on them, or if you want to read these books as well!
Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid is a book I haven’t heard much about, which leads me to believe it’s not nearly as well-known as Lemony Snicket’s famous series: A Series of Unfortunate Events. If you’ve read A Series of Unfortunate Events and enjoyed Snicket’s odd sense of humor, I think you’ll really enjoy Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid.
It’s more of a coffee-table-type book than anything else, fun to pick up and read a few pages of every now and then. It’s not really anything absolutely special, and if you had to only read one of Lemony Snicket’s books, I’d probably recommend one of the A Series of Unfortunate Events books over this one, simply because there’s nothing outstanding about it. However, I did enjoy reading it and still gave it a full four stars, and would recommend it if you want something just for some light reading on the side.
Honestly, I don’t even know where to start. Cat’s Cradle is, in my opinion and in many other’s, Kurt Vonnegut’s best work – I haven’t read all of his books but I have read quite a few, and it would be pretty damn hard to beat this one, anyway.
Cat’s Cradle is the type of book that really draws you in, it’s weird but just weird enough, and in a good way, and by the time you finish reading, you won’t want to do anything except read through the entire book all over again.
This is a fantastic book and has earned my title of best book I’ve read so far. I encourage you to give it a try if you haven’t already!!!
Although, admittedly, it’s been awhile since I’ve read this, I can still remember how intimate this book felt, how attached I grew to the characters and how sad I was at the end (no spoilers, that’s all I’m gonna say!!!).
If you’re looking for a book to really hit you hard in your feelings, and you don’t mind getting a little tearful while reading, this is an excellent read that I highly recommend to everyone.
