Anxious People pubs today! Backman Fans: get your orders in with your local bookstores now!
My first Backman book was A Man Called Ove, then I went on to read Beartown and Us Against You; I instantly became an auto-buy Backman fan so when Atria Books provided me with an advanced reader ebook I felt like I WON the lottery!!
Anxious People did not disappoint, the writing was MAGNIFICENT. so clever and sharp. I loved every single character. It wasn’t a thriller per se, but it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
True to its title, my anxiety level while reading was super high.

Author Jenny Han is brilliant! She delivered a story reminiscent of Pretty in Pink. She’s the modern day John Hughes.

How do you select the order of your TBR (to-be-read) list?
I go into each month selecting the books I want to read and the order in which I read them just comes as I complete the first one – as if I am winging it but still organized enough to know which books I will read. All I know is each month I read:
My monthly book club selection
My Book of the Month Club subscription selection
One NetGalley arc
through 8. (trying for 8 – 9 books per month) are somewhat random and picked based on other bloggers reviews and trending Goodreads reviews
If I want to hit my goal of 100 books this year, I figured I need to pad my TBR list early so I am not stalling and can pick my next read pretty quickly.
How do you organize your reading selections? What are the next 3 reads on your list?…asking for a friend’s TBR list 😉
