5 Books on my TBR #1 + Book Haul!

Hey Guys! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

So, lately my Goodreads TBR has become super cluttered, and I figured, that I could share 5 books on my TBR as and when possible, and remove the books I don’t want to read anymore! Ha, talk about killing two birds with one stone (that’s just an idiom, I am strictly against any kind of violence against animals)

So, without further ado, let’s begin with this!

Book 1: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

17838528. sy475

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Andie had it all planned out. When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future. Important internship? Check. Amazing friends? Check. Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).

But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life. Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that?

Okay, tell me honestly, doesn’t that synopsis intrigue you? And the title- I mean, The Unexpected Everything- so mysterious…… it could actually be a title of a mystery novel! AND THERE ARE DOGS INVOLVED! I CAN READ ANY BOOK WITH A DOG, YOU KNOW THAT, DON’T YOU?
Plus, there’s that self-discovery thing, and I don’t know why, but I do enjoy that trope.

Excited to pick this one!

Book 2: Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne


Fun fact 1: I love books by Holly Bourne, and can literally pick them any time.
Fun Fact 2: I want to buy them all in paperback and then read them
Fun Fact 3: I don’t have the time to read them

Synopsis from Goodreads:

All Evie wants is to be normal. She’s almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the girl-who-went-crazy. She’s even going to parties and making friends. There’s only one thing left to tick off her list…

But relationships are messy – especially relationships with teenage guys. They can make any girl feel like they’re going mad. And if Evie can’t even tell her new friends Amber and Lottie the truth about herself, how will she cope when she falls in love?

The best thing about books by Holly Bourne is that she doesn’t exactly narrate a story- it’s more like a part of that person’s life- there’s no start or end to it. And that stands out for me.

Besides, again, as someone who’s going to college next year, I would love to read books set in college- I know, I know, they’ll be unrealistic, but hey, what is life without unrealistic unexpectations, right?

Book 3: This is Not the Jess Show


Synopsis from Goodreads:

Like any other teenager, Jess Flynn is just trying to get through her junior year without drama … but drama seems to keep finding her. Between a new crush on her childhood best friend, overprotective parents cramping her social life, and her younger sister’s worsening health, the only constant is change–and her hometown of Swickley, which feels smaller by the day.

Swickley is getting weirder by the day, too. Half the population has been struck down by a mysterious flu. Conversations end awkwardly when Jess enters the room. And then one day, a tiny, sleek black device–with an apple logo on it–falls out of her best friend’s backpack and lands at Jess’s feet.

This book doesn’t have that great of a rating on Goodreads- I mean it’s not bad, but it’s not good either, you know? But that synopsis has me super attracted and intrigued, so it’s on my TBR!

Book 4: The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood


Synopsis from Goodreads:

As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn’t believe in lasting romantic relationships–but her best friend does, and that’s what got her into this situation. Convincing Anh that Olive is dating and well on her way to a happily ever after was always going to take more than hand-wavy Jedi mind tricks: Scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting biologist, Olive panics and kisses the first man she sees.

That man is none other than Adam Carlsen, a young hotshot professor–and well-known ass. Which is why Olive is positively floored when Stanford’s reigning lab tyrant agrees to keep her charade a secret and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire, putting Olive’s career on the Bunsen burner, Adam surprises her again with his unyielding support and even more unyielding…six-pack abs.

Suddenly their little experiment feels dangerously close to combustion. And Olive discovers that the only thing more complicated than a hypothesis on love is putting her own heart under the microscope.

This book has been all over my Instagram feed, and even before it came out, I have been wanting to read it. Because, oh, the cover, oh, the synopsis, oh, the genre! Science + Fake dating + A contemporary romance? COUNT ME IN!

Book 5: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

32620332. sy475

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

I mean, do I even need to explain why I want to read this? I mean, isn’t this self-explanatory, or is it just me who finds this synopsis extremely attractive? I don’t know why but I love to read about celebrities! And this is giving me strong Blaise Zabini’s mum vibes. And that Goodreads rating of 4.45 is just aiding to the book’s case!

So, erm, fun fact, I didn’t remove a single book from the TBR, heh. I saw a lot of books, which I probably won’t want to read, but my lazy butt didn’t remove them, because the process is so long. Buuut, I enjoyed doing this! So, you’ll definitely be seeing more of these posts!

Also, I actually have three of these in paperback and I also ordered a bunch of others too (A total of TWENTY books- you are jealous, aren’t you?)! I did a couple of posts on my Instagram sharing the books I ordered, and they are as follows!

Did you enjoy this post? Would you want to see more of these in the future? Are any of these books on your TBR? Which of the books I have bought in my book haul have you read? Let me know in the comments!

P.S.- 1 I have run out of colours to use for graphics, please suggest some 😭😭

  1. The cover of without merit is really awe-mazing! And have you ever used white background and black text? For the graphics? I don’t remember. But if not, you can use that for a post?

  3. Highly recommend reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. That book has become one of our absolute favorites that we have read this year. We did feel like Monique’s part didn’t really do anything for us but Evelyn, ugh we just love her. If you read it you’ll have to let us know that you think!
