I can’t wait to be done cleaning out my TBR… It’s so long that this series will take a while. I might start doing 20 books at a time instead of ten. Or maybe I’ll comprise a post about all the books I kick out of my TBR. I dunno. I’ll think about it later.
Regardless of what I’m going to do in the future, I’m excited to revisit these next 10 books in the list to see if they’ll make the cut.
Here are the rules to the “cleanse”:
- Choose the first 10 books in your TBR list.
- Read the blurb.
- Decide whether to keep it or “kick” it out of the list.
- Repeat with the next 10 books every week until you go through the whole list.
(All the blurbs were taken from Goodreads.)
I read a lot of young adult novels. In fact, 95% of what I read is in the young adult genre. What I’ve noticed over the years is that there aren’t a lot of male protagonists. Sure, there are some male main characters, but most of the time the story isn’t focused on them. Often times it is a girl narrating the story or, if it’s in third person, the narrator focuses on the girl more than the guy.
We need more male protagonists in the YA genre. Everyone should have a protagonist they can relate to, and that means boys as well. I came up with a list of books that have a male main characters. The sad thing is, I had a lot of trouble compiling a list because there are so few books with male protagonists that I’ve read. This goes to show that either 1) I’m more interested in books with female protagonists or 2) the world needs more YA books with male main characters.

What the what!?! It’s already September? Am I the only one surprised?
Anyway, a new month means new book releases. Here are my anticipated releases of September. I’m especially excited for a certain book from a certain series from a certain author that I talk a lot about on this blog (*cough cough* Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas is going to be released soon and I’m figuratively peeing my pants while waiting.)
