Reading for Pleasure and June TBR

If you followed my blog for a while, you’d have noticed that I do not review books often. Yet, in this past couple of weeks, I’ve not reviewed one but two books. The reason for my sparse reviews was not from not reading anything.

In fact, I review books professionally on another website. Therefore, I tend to prioritize reading those novels and hence find it hard to make the time to read the books I pick up for myself. Even when I do, it’s hard to find the motivation to makes notes about my thoughts and later pen them down in at least a mildly coherent fashion. I’d forgotten how much fun it is to not worry about things like meeting the required word count or having perfect grammer (See what I did there? 😉 ). So I’m going to shamelessly use you guys to keep me accountable in my endeavor to read for pleasure more often.

So as late as this is, these are the books that I’m planning on reading this June.

1. Artful by Peter David.

Okay, this is a Graphic Novel that is actually an adaptation of the novel of the same name by the same author. It is also kind of a cheat because I got it from the NetGalley website in exchange for an honest review. However, I absolutely loved the premise of the story which is Charles Dickens Oliver Twist with the twist being Vampires. Come on, who can pass up a vampire story? Also, that cover looks gorgeous right.

 

2. Watercolor Words by Topher Kearby

I’ve been really interested in painting and artwork recently so I couldn’t not pick up this book whose title that combined my love for reading with my curiosity for art. This is a poetry collection which is an added bonus as I feel like I haven’t read poems in a long while. So looking forward to getting back into poetry with this book.

 

3. Absolutely Positively Not by David Larochelle

Since this is the Pride month and because I was instantly intrigued by the title, I decided to pick up this book. It’s the story of Steven, who is absolutely positively sure that he is not gay. His problem is even though he is as obsessed with sex as any other teenager, he’s not thinking of girl when he thinks of sex. The book promises to be a fun, light-hearted read and it’s exactly what I need at the moment. I can’t wait to read more about Steven story.

So those are the books that I’m looking forward to this month. Let me know which ones you are excited about in the comments.

Happy reading! 🙂
