How was your week? I did some fence painting and shopping this weekend — guess which one was more tiring??
#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 Disabled MC!
Wow, this one took some digging on my part as I usually mark the disability after reading the book. I need to be more aware of disabled characters in the future.
|| The Wicker King by K. Ancrum ||
💛 mc with anorexia, anxiety & depression, mc with peduncular hallucinosis
I think it’s that friends to lovers Magical Realism book everyone was talking about back in the day and I still haven’t read??
I thought it was m/m but apparently it’s poly which weirdly the reviews I read back when I put it on my TBR didn’t mention??
|| Three-Way Split by Elia Winters ||
💛 mc with dyscalculia
Another poly romance!!
That’s all I know about this book — dyscalculia and poly romance.
I added it when I was on the lookout for poly romances so if you know some good ones — drop the titles in the comments.
|| As I Descended by Robin Talley ||
💛 disabled lesbian mc
💛 Macbeth retelling
💛 nearly everyone dies and I will cry
I keep mentioning that book in this meme every few weeks but I still haven’t read it…
The truth is, I’m too chicken to read a MacBeth retelling where I actually care about characters (I assume I would because they’re queer) and watch them die. Send help.
|| Failure to Communicate by Kaia Sønderby ||
💛 #ownvoices autistic protagonist
I’ve heard only good things about this series so it’s a wonder I still haven’t read it.
The MC is one of the only remaining autistic people due to genetic engineering and she’s a space diplomat on a mission to mediate with xenophobic people in the possession of a dangerous weapon.
|| The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James by Ashley Herring Blake ||
💛 MC after a heart surgery
💛 Middle Grade
I only put this on my TBR today but I’ve thought about this book for a long time I just forgot to click that want to read button.
My brother has a heart condition so this book will be super important to me probably and I will cry a lot but in a good way. And it’s sapphic.
Thank you to all the people who put all the rep in their reviews — this post would be impossible without you lmao. I need to go through my TBR and check which of them have disability rep at some point TT-TT
- Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
- Do you have any of those on your TBR?
- Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)
