Recent TBR Additions: October 2020

Last week, I officially hit my unofficial goal of reading 100 books in 2020! I’m not sure if I’ll pass my 2019 reading total of 127 books, but regardless, I am so happy about how much I have read this year, given that the world has been a mess and I’ve been going to school throughout all of it.

One of the reasons why I’ve been able to read 100+ books per year for the past 3 years is likely because I’m always adding books to my to-be-read pile. I haven’t done a TBR additions post since May, & today I’ll be sharing some books I’ve added to my TBR over the past few weeks.

Party of Two (The Wedding Date #5) by Jasmine Guillory

If you’ve read these books, let me know if I should read the first four companion books firs

Destination Wedding by Diksha Basu 

You likely know that I am more than willing to read ANY book about a wedding, and I am so intrigued by Diksha Basu’s Destination Wedding. The main character and her best friend travel to India for her cousin’s weeklong wedding, with plenty of family drama and relationship drama in store. 

Nobody Will Tell You This But Me: A True (as Told to Me) Story  by Bess Kalb 

I’ve been doing a mini deep dive into non-fiction and memoirs in 2020, and the next memoir on my list is Bess’ Kalb’s Nobody Will Tell You This But Me. The book follows Bess Kalb’s relationship with her grandmother and four generations of women in their family. The novel is told in her grandmother’s voice. I’ll likely borrow this one as physical copy from the library, but I’m thinking about reading it as an audiobook. Read More »
