I kinda hate adding things to my tbr because I feel that it is a losing battle. It just gets bigger and bigger. I’m too slow a reader to make any kind of meaningful effect on it. But whenever I see someone raving about something, I want in on the magic. And my tbr shelf is a good way of keeping track of everything.
This week’s prompt is about a specific genre of books recently added to your tbr, but I find that my interests are too widespread to be able to do that well, so I’m going to list the 10 most recent books added. Enjoy! (and tell me if you’ve read any of these and if so, what you thought of them)
Today I’m linking up for a Top Ten Tuesday!
This week’s theme: 10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List
My theme: 10 books recently added to my tbr
Exit, Pursued by a Bear // E. K. Johnston
I mentioned a long time ago that I meant to read it when it came out but I never actually had it on my tbr. But then I saw it at the library last week and instantly checked it out. Just look at that cover. It’s so gorgeous.
The Girl With all the Gifts // M. R. Carey
I wasn’t really interested in this one until I saw the cover of the movie at Family Video. Then I looked at the synopsis and find out it’s about zombies? Yes please. (I hate zombie movies, but books are fine.)
Mouthful of Forevers // Clementine von Radics
I’m not sure where I saw this on Goodreads but I’ve been wanting to read more poetry and this caught my eye. I then went to read the title poem and fell in love. I’m really looking forward to more by this author.
Wires and Nerve, Vol. 2 // Marissa Meyer
I was hesitant about Vol. 1 but then loved it and need volume 2 in my life asap. I’ve always kinda underappreciated Iko, so I’m happy for a chance to explore her character in this format.
The Hate U Give // Angie Thomas
I initially thought this was all hype and wasn’t very interested, but then I saw review after review of praise, and with the current political climate, I feel like this is a book that must be read.
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls // Elena Flavilli
I don’t have children, but a woman I work with has two daughters and mentioned that I might like this. From the illustrations I saw online, I think it will be both a beautiful and empowering read.
Release // Patrick Ness
I somehow still have not read a Patrick Ness book? I don’t know. I’m sorry.
Honestly, this one is purely based on the cover. Look at that cover. It’s gorgeous.
I’m admittedly a little turned off that it’s partly based on Judy Blume’s Forever (which I absolutely despised), but I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.
We Are Okay // Nina LaCour
I’m interested in this after loving Everything Leads To You. I’m not big on this cover, but I’ve heard some good things and really want to see more from this author.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine // Gail Honeyman
I’m really not sure why this caught my eye but I like that it’s not YA. I’ve been trying to branch out into more mature books. The main character in this one sounds interesting. She’s described as being a bit offbeat socially, and I’m interested to see how that’s portrayed.
Ready Player One // Ernest Cline
I’m not really a gamer but I feel like reading this book is a rite-of-passage for every avid reader. Plus I think there’s a movie on the way?
currently listening to: Dismantle by Peter Sandberg
Are any of these on your tbr?
If you’ve already read them, let me know what you think! (but no spoilers please)
