September 10: Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why (maybe you’re scared of it, worried it won’t live up to the hype, etc.) (submitted by Caitlin @ Caitlin Althea)
I want to do this with rereads because I don’t have enough books on my Goodreads tbr to create a good list of ten.
Why: I would love to reread this book since It’s about activism and that something that I want to try and do in the future. However, when I read this the first time, a lot of the words entered one ear and went out the other.
Why: This book is very well done but gave me nightmares for a few nights after I read this.
Why: I didn’t really understand this book or the reasons behind it, so I doubt it I will feel any different the second time around.
Why: I doubt it if I read this book the right way, but I have no will to reread it.
Why: As much as I want to support Maltese authors, I don’t like this book enough to give it another read and I don’t own this book anymore.
Why: This book gave me the creeps, but I was given this by the author and can’t afford or have access to the rest of the series.
Why: The Transgender Manifesto by Ian Thomas Malone represents the trans community, but, I think it will trigger feelings I don’t want to feel.
Why: I don’t know why but this book reminds me of an ex-girlfriend and the good times we had together and I feel that rereading this book will send me in a swallow mindset where I don’t want my mind to go.
Why: I love this book for its weirdness, but it has a lot of sex scenes that will set me off.
Why: I won’t like it as much as my 17-year-old self did, because me back then didn’t care how bad the writing in this book is. However, I now with the lens of an author does care.
August 27: Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library (perhaps you checked it out, borrowed it from a friend, received it for review, etc. and want to own it yourself.) (Submitted by Annemieke @ A Dance with Books)
