#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook 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.
In theory this one should be quite easy, though when they’re particularly easy to find, it makes it all the more harder to actually narrow them down! For this one, I’ll start with one of the books I want to read for my reading challenges, as they’re the ones I’m going to get to sooner.
#5OnMyTBR: Titles Starting with a ‘D’
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I know this is here somewhere, likely in one of the many boxes of books we have around the place, but I definitely need to dig it out, especially after seeing the TV series. Which I loved, and I’m keen to see how different the book is. This one is on my Netflix Reading Challenge, under the Julie and the Phantoms prompt (has a band/musician), and seemed like a clear choice for it.

I’m not the biggest Crime reader – I pick it up now and then, and my feelings on it vary from one book to another. But I was intrigued by this when I spotted it on NetGalley, and an anthology is a great way to test the waters with a genre you don’t regularly read. I’m hoping there’s some stories in here I really do click with.
Darkness Unknown by S.A. Fenech
I picked this up a while ago when it was on offer on Amazon – and it looks really fun. I love books that combine different paranormal creatures, and I’ve been meaning to get back into these types of paranormal/urban fantasy books for a while.
Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious: The Knight, The Fool and The Dead by Steve Cole
I pre-ordered this, was really excited for it, then kept forgetting I even have it! Thankfully, after logging a lot of my physical books, I noted this one down so at least when I’m scanning through my list it’s right there. Even though this was part of a larger event (Time Lord Victorious) that I didn’t keep up with (because there was so so much), I’m hoping this book works well enough as a standalone.
This is a NetGalley book, and I’m not totally sure why I keep putting it off – it sounds fascinating, and definitely something I’m keen to read as well as being fairly different from most things I read. I do need to try this one, and need to keep an eye out for where I can put it into my reading challenges, I think.
5 more books from my TBR, so tell me – have you read any of these? What did you think? Any you think should become a “read asap” book?
