Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
This week’s prompt is “10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List”. While most of these are titles are newer ones, there are some old ones from a while ago that I kind of… forgot about. ? I technically picked two genres (fantasy and science fiction), but it can be hard to tell them apart without reading the book so I just lumped them together. Fantasy happens to be my favorite genre and therefore the only genre that had had around 10 recent additions. ?
Out for a While
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
This has been on my general TBR for a while, but I just recently added it to my summer TBR. Hopefully, that means I’ll actually end up reading it this year, but I’ve been saying that since it was published in 2015 so…
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
This is another title that I’ve had my eye for a while and just never got around to reading. I’m a little nervous to read it – Alexandra Bracken’s other series, The Darkest Minds is perhaps my favorite book of all time. But like Illuminae, I’m determined to finally get to it this summer.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
With its sequel coming out later this year, I have to read this novel before fall comes around.
Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza
This title is a little more recent, but since I’ve owned it for a few months now (signed and personalized too), I probably should start reading it soon.
For some reason, a bunch of the books that I’ve recently added to my TBR are published today of all days. It’s like they knew I was going to be publishing this post today.
The Possible by Tara Altebrando
I sorta knew about this book but wasn’t totally familiar with it until I visited Bloomsbury’s offices last Wednesday. (You can read more about my visit in my recap of my day in NYC). This was one of the books they were talking about and got me interested in reading it, hence why it’s on my TBR.
Breaking by Danielle Rollins
I got an ARC of this at Blogbound and thought it sounded interesting (and right up my alley). Hopefully, I’ll be able to give it a read before next year.
Want by Cindy Pon
When I first heard about this book, I was so excited. Finally, a book set in Taiwan – a place that has a large impact on my family’s history! I can’t wait to read this book since it’ll be a representation of the culture passed down to me as a Taiwanese (and Chinese) American.
To Be Published
There are still a few books that are on my TBR and have yet to be published. But I’ve been lucky enough to have ARCs of them so you can bet I’ll be reading them soon. 🙂
What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy
This is another book that the Bloomsbury PR and Marketing team hyped up when I visited their offices.
The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones
This book sounds so intriguing and a bit different from the fantasy/sci-fi books I usually read.
Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen
Yet another book recommended by the Bloomsbury team. This will probably be the last one on this list that I’ll read – it doesn’t get published until next year so why read it early and have to stew and keep my thoughts to myself?
What about you?
What books have you just added to your TBR?
Do you have any of my picks on your list?
