There’s a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish called “Top Ten Tuesday.” Today I’ll be participating by sharing ten books I’ve recently added to my TBR (or, to-be-read list). I will take this opportunity to say that I’m very territorial about my TBR, and I’m not going to put something on there unless I am absolutely going to read it. The more books I have on the TBR, the more stressed I am about getting them all read. I get so stressed about the size of that list that I’m currently on a “TBR” ban, meaning I can’t add anything to that list unless I take something off (yes, I live a sad life). The 10 books I’ve chosen today have all been added over the past three months. Have you read any of them?
1. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Good news! I’ll be reading this one soon(ish) for a book club! Fellow blogger Nicola is also a part of this book club, so I’ll have a buddy to read it with (yay!).
2. A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers
After deciding that The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet was one of my favorite books of 2016, I knew that I had to read the next one. I am SO excited for it to come out in paperback (I believe it’s currently out in a e-book form only right now?).
3. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
No real explanation needed. I enjoyed the first one, so I must read the next (everyone says this one is better, anyway).
4. Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab
This Savage Song (the first in the series) was fantastic! I can’t wait for the next one.
5. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
I haven’t read a single book by Michael Crichton. Pathetic, right? I decided that this one should be my first.
6. Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews
It’s creepy and some good friends have recommended it to me, because I love horror. What more could I ask for when picking up a book?
7. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
It’s wildly popular, so many of my blogging friends recommend it, and they’re making it into a movie. That’s a recipe to get me to read it ASAP.
8. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
My understanding about this book is that it’s an alternate reality situation: what if the Axis powers of WWII had won? People rave about this book, and the sequel just came out, so who could ask for better timing?
9. Geek Love by Katherine Dunn
A story about a carny family?! YES, YES, AND MORE YES. Even better? The pregnant women poison themselves to create freak-show-quality children. I LOVE this level of creepy. Audible.com just had a 2-for-1 sale that included this book, so I’ll be listening this one soon!
10. The Bronze Horsemen by Paullina Simons
I have heard crazy good things about this epic love story. One blogger said she read it and it became her favorite book of all-time. All I know is that it’s about Russians in WWII. This was the other audiobook I bought with Audible.com’s 2-for-1 sale I mentioned above. I didn’t realize it was 30 HOURS LONG. This will probably take me an entire month to listen to (…if not more).
Have you read any of these books? What books have you added to your TBR lately? Are you on Goodreads? Let’s be friends!
