Ahhhhh, the always present TBR list. It grows and grows and grows, and then grows some more. I am always adding books to my TBR list on Goodreads, and today the team over at The Broke and the Bookish is feeling my pain since their Top Ten Tuesday topic for this week is the last ten books added to your TBR list! So I went through my Goodreads list and picked out some standouts!
1. All The Rage by Courtney Summers
I’ve only read one Courtney Summers book before and I really enjoyed it, so when All The Rage started getting lots of buzz I had to add it to my TBR. This definitely sounds like a darker book than most that I pick up, following the rape of a girl named Romy and the fallout from that both for her and for her town, so I can’t say I’m looking forward to reading this one, but I suspect it’s going to be a worthwhile experience all the same.
2. Rook by Sharon Cameron
Set in The Sunken City (that was once Paris!) Rook seems to be about a revolution of some kind! Honestly, I don’t know much about it, but the red in that cover jumped right out at me, and the story sounds really cool, so I’m sure I’ll be picking this one up at some point this year!
3. The Golden Specific by S.E. Grove
This is a sequel to a book I haven’t read yet and am not even 100% sure I’ll enjoy (only because it’s starting to sound like more of a middle grade title than I originally thought) but the concept for this series is so awesome that I really couldn’t resist adding this book to my TBR as soon as it was announced.
4. Lois Lane: Fallot by Gwenda Bond
I’ve never been a huge Superman fangirl but I couldn’t resist the sound of this book. Lois Lane has just moved to Metropolis, and she starts up a conversation online with SmallvilleGuy. The premise is too cute to pass up, and I’ve always loved Lois’ character so I can’t wait to see what Gwenda Bond has done with her!
5. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardigo
Game of Thrones meets Ocean’s Eleven. Yes please. Add in Leigh Bardugo and there is no way I’m not pestering everyone at BEA to find me a copy of this book! Six outcasts, one heist. Sign. Me. Up.
6. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
I’m not sure how this book made it as one of my recent adds to my TBR because I feel like I’ve wanted to read it for a while now. The only reason I haven’t started it yet (I already have a copy) after hearing such great things, is that I’m trying to wait until a bit closer to when the last book of the series comes out so that when I inevitably get hooked on this series I can just jump from one to the next without having to wait too long.
7. The Glass Arrow by Kristin Simmons
I am all kinds of down for any book set in a society that highlights the roles of women. In the world of The Glass Arrow, females are scare and sold for their breeding rights, so not exactly a good time. But I’ve heard good things about this book, and I have to think that the world building would make for an interesting read.
8. All I Know Now by Carrie Hope Fletcher
Carrie has been one of my favorite YouTubers for a while now and somehow I didn’t know that she had written a book! This girl is incredibly positive, inspiring and a genuinely good person! I have no idea what she has included in this book (non-fiction) but can’t wait to read it!
But wait, that’s only eight! Well, yesterday over on my YouTube channel I did a video about seven books on my April TBR list. And since I could only fit eight books into the graphic above, I thought I’d include that here as well! Most of these books have been on my TBR list for a while now, and I’m only getting around to reading them in April, but I think there’s something to be said for getting bumped to the top of the list!
