5OnMyTBR: Red Covers

Thanks to @LocalBeeHuntersNook for #5OnMyTBR – a weekly bookish meme where we share 5 books on our TBR list from prompts (which you can find here).  The prompt this week is red covers!




→ young adult, fantasy

A seemingly Utopian society has conquered everything, even death. Scythes control the population and are the only ones who can kill. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice Faraday, but not all scythes are as good or honourable as him – some are murderous.

This plot sounds amazing and it’s very popular at the moment so I want to know what all the hype is about!

Clown in a Cornfield


→ young adult, horror

Clown in a Cornfield is a teen slasher book following Quinn, who recently moved to Kettle Springs. Its a small town caught in a battle between adults and tradition, and teens and progress. Then the mascot clown Frendo goes homicidal and decides the best solution is to “cull the rotten crop of kids”.

When I saw the Stranger Things font I was drawn to this and now reading the plot I’m very intrigued.

Dear Haiti, Love Alaine


→ young adult, contemporary

Alaine gets suspended and to not be expelled from her private school, she agrees to spend a few months in Haiti with her aunt where her parents grew up, for a volunteer project. There, she learns history about the country and her family.

It’s also told in the form of letters, emails and diary entries, so I’m really interested to read this.

From Blood and Ash

52831200. sy475

→ fantasy, romance

Poppy is a Maiden and is waiting for until the time for her Ascension. That means that she can’t show her face, can’t be friends with anyone, and has to follow the orders of the Duke and the Duchess. But when Hawke, a guard bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need.

I think there’s more to it than that, but this book sounds like a cute read.

Go With the Flow


→ graphic novel, contemporary

When Sasha unexpectedly gets her period at school, a new group of friends help her out. The incident inspires Abby in particular to start campaigning for less stigma and more resources for the school’s students who menstruate.

This sounds like such a wholesome and important read.

Thanks for reading!



  1. “Scythe” is so good!! I really love this series! I’m currently reading the last book and I’m still excited about it. 😀 “From Blood and Ash” is all over my feed at the moment and I’m getting really curious about it. I hope you’ll enjoy all books once you get to them. XD
