(but really, this post could also be named : an addition to my March TBR or why I shouldn’t have a blog alone or beware this is me trolling your Saturday or Damn the kids were tiring today I needed books or -)
So, why can’t I, for the life of me, keep a TBR for more than a day? Honestly, I think that I’m so sick of planning for my class that I have a hard time following my reading plan and –
Or, I went to the bookstore.
Maybe that’s just it. Mind. Blown.
Books in this picture that I REALLY want to read and that were NOT in my March TBR for translated novels (putting the English version below, but as you can see, I tend to favor French translations when the book has been written in Spanish or Italian – Plus Mabanckou writes in French, and Szabó’s was well, just there OKAY?)
- Black Moses by Alain Mabanckou
- Memoirs of a Porcupine by Alain Mabanckou
- A Soldier on the Southern Front by Emilio Lussu
- On Heroes and Tombs by Ernesto Sabato
- The Door by Magda Szabo
Let’s be real one second : I don’t even know why I’m writing this useless post, except to express :
a) my complete inability to follow any form of reading plan so perhaps you shouldn’t trust them : how do you people do I NEED INPUT
and b) my excitation because SERIOUSLY, HOW AMAZING DO THEY SOUND?! (I just started Black Moses and already really liking it :))
Sorry for the trolling?
So, tell me : How do you manage to follow your TBRs? Do you struggle or is it just me who can’t bother? Have you read any of these novels?
