TBR: The last three month of the year (a male author selection)

I will only be reading books written by women and non-binary people next year. It seemed like a good idea when I decided on that a few months ago. My reading taste leans towards books written by women anyways and I got so annoyed at the articles proclaiming that men don’t read women – and being the good economist I am, I decided to show the market that I can do that as well – I mean being a woman and only reading women.

There are a few books that I am fairly hyped about that I won’t get to next year, but I figure waiting a few months before I read them won’t kill me. But, and this is the idea behind this post, I own a few books written by men that I do want to get to before the beginning of the year. So I will try to read them in the next few months (I have not been following any TBRs whatsoever, so we will have to wait and see whether I actually do read them). Here are some books I am excited about, in no particular order.

Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Acceptance by Jeff VanderMeer

The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne

Don’t Call Us Dead by Danez Smith

A Lucky Man by Jamel Brinkley

Reservoir 13 by Jon McGregor

number9dream by David Mitchell

Please get me excited about these books because they are all books I am sure I will enjoy (probably love) but some of them have been on my shelves for over a year. And if I don’t pick them up in the next three months, they will gather dust on my TBR shelf for longer still.

  1. I very reluctantly started The Heart’s Invisible Furies, having been persuaded to try it by other bloggers. I thought it sounded cliched and sentimental – but I ended up loving it. It didn’t feel long at all!

  2. I think Danez Smith is nonbinary so you don’t need to rush that one! But I’m really excited about that collection too after seeing Jen Campbell rave about it so much. I bought it a few months ago but still haven’t picked it up… I should do that soon. And obviously I’m very excited about you reading THIF.

    1. Oh, that is interesting. I did not realize that. The collection sounds absolutely stunning – and the bits and pieces I have seen him perform made me cry. (I am super emotional lately)
      Everybody seems to agree with you on THIF – so I should be getting to it soon.

      1. I only noticed VERY recently that Jen was using they/them pronouns, so I googled to make sure and their wiki page also says nonbinary. So I think you’re good to read that next year. But I understand the appeal of reading it right away. I watched the Dinosaurs in the Hood video recently and it was so intense.

      2. I didn’t notice her using they/them pronouns, but they are used on Danez’ homepage, so yes, I should be fine. But I also want to read the collection soonish. Then again, I plan that with so many things and then it takes me ages.
