So, it’s Monday again! Tell me about your TBRs!!
#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.
This week’s prompt is Superheros!
I think I overstated the ammount of superhero books on my TBR when creating this prompt but let’s see what I’ve got!
|| Not Your Backup by C.B. Lee ||
💛 ace/aro spec MC
💛 the no-powers girl of superhero friendgroup
💛 continuation of the series
This is the 3rd book of The Sidekcik Squad which I adored!
It’s sort of between YA and MG with love and superpowers and adventure. The worldbuilding is quite bonkers and not supposed to be super realistic but it’s funny and has interesting plot and relevant parallels to today’s issues. Oh, and super queer rep.
|| The Extraordinaries by TJ Klune ||
💛 m/m frirnds to lovers
💛 ADHD rep
I have the ARC of this and, of course, I still haven’t got to it… I really am not the most reliable person. HOWEVER. This will be very cute — Nick writes fanfiction about superheros and one day he gets to MEET a superhero (and his crush) so he makes a plan with his BFF (and maybe a boy he’s in love with) to get his attention again.
|| Chasing Stars by Alex K. Thorne ||
💛 it was fanfiction?
I’ve heard this one was SuperCat fanfiction (Supergirl x Cat Grant) and while I didn’t ship them back when I was wathing Supergirl I’m curious about it.
Also, I think I have this one on my kindle and I was supposed to read it for the Sapphic Book Club so so long ago… Oops.. I am sorry TT-TT
|| Dreadnought by April Daniels ||
💛 trans girl!!
💛 sadly a lot of transphobia
Danny inheriets the powers of a dying superhero Dreadnought — but she also inheriets their problems. And her own problems do not go away. Atually they triple.
I’m excited to see a trans girl kicking asses!! But also be aware that Danny’s parents are super transphobic here.
|| The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness ||
💛 about the regular people of superhero world
💛 lots of rep
💛 MC with OCD
This looks like a satire of conventional superhero/paranormal novels and I’m curious.
It has only side queer rep so knowing me, will I really get to it? Who knows. But it sounds interesting.
Who’s your favourite superhero??
For me, I have a thing for the X-Men. I loved watching the cartoon as a kid — I know that people who actually read the comics talk shit about it but, hey man, I’ve grown up on them and had a crush on like most of those girls. And wolverine?
- Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
- Do you have any of those on your TBR?
- Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)
