I've done really well so far this year focusing on my own damn books, and I've been very slow to acquire anything except comics which pleases me to no end. However, that said, there are some books that are SERIOUSLY calling my name. Here are a few already released titles and some yet to be published, but they are all hollering to me in a big way.
Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun, and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes fits with the current goings-on in my life, for sure. While I have no interest in this book because of the TV shows Rhimes has been involved in, I love the premise of saying yes to the things that intimidate us, especially as an introvert who has trouble with that at times.
13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad is supposedly a humorous, biting look at a woman's struggle with weight, and it's described as a book that "skewers the body image-obsessed culture that tells women they have no value outside their physical appearance, and delivers a tender and moving depiction of a lovably difficult young woman whose life is hijacked by her struggle to conform." Really curious about it.
Three Moments of an Explosion by China Mieville is a collection of 28 stories. I haven't read any of Mieville's work so far, and this book definitely appeals to me the most of all his work so far. It's repeatedly described as weird, weird, and more weird. I'm here for that.
The Regional Office is Under Attack! by Manuel Gonzales because assassin women.
What is Not Yours is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi is a must-try. I've struggled with her novels, and my hope is that I'll enjoy her style more in shorter form.
Everything is Teeth by Evie Wyld and Joe Sumner looks really odd but intriguing. Apparently it's an illustrated memoir about sharks, family, love, and memory. I'm in.
Which books are tempting you here lately?
