FIB-TBR

My TBR list is massive and unfortunate. If all the books on it were print editions I could likely fence in my apartment building with it and still have a few books left over. That being said, I think my most immediate TBR books, not directly related to the blog at least, are Seanan McGuire’s Every Heart a Doorway and her latest Ghost Stories novel The Girl in the Green Silk Gown.

I’ve been looking forward to Every Heart a Doorway since I was half way through Down Among the Sticks and Bones, the second book made me want to know more about the setting and what had come before. I have ideas of what’s going to happen thanks to the third book, Beneath the Sugar Sky, but I’m also enjoying the series enough that I want to dig in to it more. Plus the next one’s coming out in January and I want to be ready for it.

The Girl in the Green Silk Gown is something of another beast entirely. Not just because it comes from a different series but also because the book that preceded it, Sparrow Hill Road, is both a ghost story and sort of a series to itself. Sparrow Hill Road was initially a set of short stories all featuring Rose Marshall, the Phantom Prom Date, as the lead character. So each chapter is a self contained story within a story. It leaves me really curious as to whether The Girl in the Green Silk Gown is going to follow that pattern or be a more straightforward novel. That and I want to see where the road takes Rose next.

I’ve also got the remaining Please Don’t Tell My Parents novels that I want to get read, so two and a half books there. I’m really enjoying the third one, Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Have Henchmen, so I’m sort of expecting to be finished reading it by the end of the week or sooner.

And, of course, there’s all those books I’ve gotten for review through netGalley.

It’s a long list.
