June 2020 TBR-Novels in Verse

I had several plans for my June TBR and was planning to push this one off a few months, but I’m too excited about it to wait. In June I have plans to read mostly novels in verse. It is my favorite format. They are quick reads and usually very emotionally draining, because somehow the format lets you tackle heavier subjects. There are 13 books on this TBR and I am excited about all of them. I wanted to read only books I own and I did, but it’s still kind of cheating because all of them were new purchases in the past couple of months. Eight of them haven’t even arrived in the mail yet. These are the books I plan to read this month.

The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan

Somewhere Among by Annie Donwerth-Chikamatsu

The Way the Light Bends by Cordelia Jensen

It Rained Warm Bread by Gloria Moskowitz-Sweet

Sold by Patricia McCormick

Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse

Inside the Whale by Joseph G. Peterson

Darlington’s Fall by Brad Leithauser

The Secrets of Me by Meg Kearney

The Wherewithal by Philip Schultz

May B by Caroline Starr Rose

Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai

The Deepest Breath by Meg Grehan

I will also be finishing up some other books that have been lingering on my currently reading shelf for far too long. I am so excited for my reading this month. Have you read any of these? Are there novels in verse that you gave five stars?

    1. I am so glad to hear you can enjoy your memories ❤️ Next Wednesday will be a year for us and most days I would prefer to not think about my Jason at all. The tears and nightmares are coming on stronger and more often now that the one year mark is getting closer.

      Everytime I think about the one year mark I find myself briefly adding “and then he’ll come back”. I will have made it through one of every holiday and milestone without him and then he can come back because I did a good job. And it is soul crushing everytime because I have to remind myself that he is dead and that will never ever happen. Everything is so hard. I’m just trying to stay distracted.

      1. Why not turn it around and say his memories will be coming back. I truly believe people live on with us through memories once we are able to accept them without letting them break our hearts. I would break down and cry at every memory while going through all his stuff and pictures and songs. I was afraid but forced to do this for the move. I think the nightmares are because you are suppressing those memories. Let them out a little at a time and eventually you will see you can smile through the tears and then less tears. It just shows how very much you loved him.
