My TBR has been growing at an absurd rate ever since I started blogging. I mean, it was always decent sized, like 20 books or so, but now…it’s huge. It’s insane. Partly on Goodreads, partly on notes on my phone, partly physical…I think probably over a thousand books total.
And, this week’s TTT is all about that lovely. ever-growing TBR! And so, I kick off Top Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately!
VASSA IN THE NIGHT BY SARAH PORTER
Everyone seems to have loved this book, and if I understand it right, it’s historical urban fantasy about a girl who lives in Brooklyn but Brooklyn also has magic? I don’t really know, I just know it’s supposedly very weird and very excellent.
GEORGIA PEACHES AND OTHER FORBIDDEN FRUIT BY JAYE ROBIN BROWN
I keep hearing that this is a lot like Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, which was amazing, and I loved it, so if this is as good it’ll be fantastic. Of course, you can never really trust comparisons, but I’ll give it a try.
THE CRESSWELL PLOT BY ELIZA WASS
I vaguely remember bloggers getting this book shipped to them in boxes of dirt, but other than that I didn’t really pay that much attention to it. But apparently it’s super good and I should read it, according to a friend of mine.
THE MEMORY BOOK BY LARA AVERY
I actually know what this one is about, but I honestly can’t remember. BUT I WANT TO READ IT.
HEIR TO THE SKY BY AMANDA SUN
As far as I know, people haven’t LOVED this one, but come on. SKY KINGDOM. It sounds awesome and I don’t think I’ve ever read stuff about sky kingdoms before so this shall be my first.
WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS BY ANNA-MARIE MCLEMORE
I didn’t love The Weight of Feathers…I found it somewhat lacking in plot, but the writing was absolutely gorgeous, and I’m sure this one will be the same.
In terms of the gorgeous writing, not the lacking plot.
THIEF OF LIES BY BRENDA DRAKE
HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS EARLIER? It’s a book set in a freaking library, but I only heard about it for the first time a couple of days ago. I can even ignore what is clearly going to be instalove, judging by the synopsis, because library.
Also, on a side note, does anyone think that the girl on the cover looks like Emma Watson?
DEAD GIRLS SOCIETY
The title is bugging me, a little bit, because it seems like it should be Dead Girl’s Society, but whatever. The idea behind the novel seems cool.
THE STEEP & THORNY WAY BY CAT WINTERS
This book is set in my backyard (well, Oregon, so the same part of the country, AKA the Pacific Northwest), plus ghosts. And while I tend not to really love historical fiction, this seems cool and a lot of people really like it.
LABYRINTH LOST BY ZORAIDA CORDOVA
People seem to love this, it’s urban fantasy, has an awesome cover, and I think I might have a kindle edition of it that I forgot about. I’m sold.
