Top Ten Tuesday | Recent Additions to My TBR (AKA My Leaning TBR is about to Topple Over)


It’s always fun to take a look at the recent additions to one’s bookshelf, because quite frankly, if you’re anything like me, you do forget what you add. In this way, it's kind of like we can go shopping on our own bookshelf. Today the Top Ten Tuesday prompt gives allows us to do just this.

Broke and Bookish November 8th Prompt
Ten Books I've Added To My To-Be-Read List
- Broke and Bookish

I feel like most if not all of these have been featured on any number of my recent Top Ten Tuesday posts. But in keeping to today’s prompt these also happen to be the most recent additions to my shelf. There is an interesting mix of genres, and obviously, I’m curious on some level about these stories or I wouldn’t have picked the book up. Now the question is which to read first!?

 BOOKTUBE | Recent TBR Additions 


Some of these I bought others publishers kindly sent (thank you, Blink!).  Either way, I have high hopes for these and am anticipating the thrill and possibly of discovering a new favorite to be kept on my keeper shelf. Here is how my “research” for this blog post turned out.


1. The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout | See what I mean? This is one I’ve recently featured, but well, it also fit with today’s prompt, so on the list it jumped. Amazon | Goodreads


2. What Light by Jay Asher | This is one that released only a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to haul in my October book haul video. It’s a Christmas story, so I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to read it in the next month or so. Have you read any of Jay’s books? (I hear good things!) Amazon | Goodreads


3. Everneath by Brodi Ashton | I did remember to haul this one in my October Book Haul Video, and am curious about it. I really enjoyed Brodi’s Diplomatic Immunity so I’m excited to read her backlist, despite the drastic genre change. Amazon | Goodreads


4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo | I’ll confess, this was a buy driven by its popularity. It showed up everyone on my Instagram or Twitter feed because of the recent release of book two, Crooked Kingdom. Fortunately, I do think the plot sounds really good too, so I’m hoping it’ll be entertaining. Amazon | Goodreads

GIVEAWAY | Two Book Contemporary Novel Giveaway Bash


5. Can’t Help Falling by Kara Isaac | A contemporary romance with ties to Narnia? Obviously, this was hands down, a must buy. Amazon | Goodreads


6. It Started with Goodbye by Christina June | The publisher, Blink Books (an imprint) kindly sent me this one. I comes out next spring, and though I don’t know a great deal about it (not that I mind), I’m looking forward to reading this one. Amazon | Goodreads


7. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas | I’ve not read any of these books, and still I collect them. The stories and characters sound epic, so I am looking forward to them. First I have to get over their intimidation tactics. Amazon | Goodreads


8. Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean | Again, another book from Blink (thank you) that sounds interesting. Although like ‘Goodbye,’ I don’t know much about this one either. Though to be honest, sometimes it’s best to go into a book “blind.” Amazon | Goodreads


9. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Apart from the recent film adaptation, which I haven’t see save for the trailers, I know zip about this one. Still, I saw it at the store last week and decided to pick up a copy. Chances are I’ll rent the film, so I figured the ideal way to prep for that is to first read the novel. Have any of you read this one? Amazon | Goodreads


10. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman | Yep, this one is another film adaptation. It looks beautiful, and the cast seems perfect for this kind of period film. Naturally the hope is to read the book and then see the film. Amazon | Goodreads

  1. I've got mixed reviews about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, but I quite liked the book myself. I hope you enjoy it too!

    1. Cool! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, Joyce. I'm definitely curious about the story as it looks/sounds unique, and do indeed hope it works for my reading preferences. :)

      Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

    1. Thanks, Chrissi! Me too. It's always wonderful to discover a new read/series and of course, author. :)

      Thanks for visiting.

  3. Miss Peregrine's I want to see but I've been mixed on whether I want t read the book or not. The Problem With Forever sounds good.

    1. I've sort of made it a "rule" (recently) that I read the book before seeing the film. So if I want to see the movie, I try and read the book beforehand otherwise, chances are low that I'd ever read it (post seeing the film). So far, it's been working, but if I don't get it read before the DVD arrives, well, I'll be in trouble. :D

      Thanks for visiting, Greg.

  4. As always , beautifully designed post :) and a great list! I haven't read Six of Crows either but am really intrigued! Also I haven't read Throne of glass but I collect the books :P I'm waiting for a good time to begin with the series!

    I unfortunately did not like Miss Peregrine's but I think that had more to do with my expectations than the book itself!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    1. Thanks, Uma. I do have fun with my Top Ten Tuesday posts. ;)

      Six Of Crows is really hyped, but I'm hopeful it'll also be a good read.

      TOG: I'm in the same boat! I own the series, but haven't read a page. Someday I *should* remedy this.

      I feel like my chances of liking 'Miss Peregrine' could go either way. I wasn't interested until I saw the trailers, so we'll see how it goes. :)

      Thank you for visiting! :)

  5. I hope you'll like Six of Crows! I really enjoyed it. I just picked up Crooked Kingdom, and I'm hoping it lives up to the hype as well. Great list!

    1. Perfect time of year to be reading What Light, Lori. Ideally I too would like to read it, but only time will tell if I make room (move it up) on that leaning TBR. ;)

      Thanks for visiting!

  7. Oooh, Empire of Storms was so good! My friend read What Light and liked it, but it doesn't really come across as something I would like, so for now i'm just gonna leave it alone. Great post! Also, can i just say your graphics are AMAZING! *heart eyes* My TTT: http://glitteringreads.com/2016/11/08/ten-2016-releases-recently-added-to-my-to-be-read-shelf/

    1. Cool! I'm so glad to know EofS is good. Now I just have to get over its intimidating appearance. ;)

      Nothing wrong with that. It's better to stay away from books that don't suit. :)

      Thanks, Adalyn. They're always fun to make. Appreciate you visiting!

  8. I have The Light Between Oceans but haven't read it yet! I definitely need to get to it before I see the film. What Light looks amazing and I really want to read that - probably in December!
    Here's my TTT

    1. Me too, Clare. Why I've not yet read 'Oceans' I don't know, but time is dwindling. Hope we both get the chance to read and enjoy it! :)

      Glad you visited!

  13. I try to read the book for watching the film as often as I can, but with so many film adaptations always coming out, it's hard to keep up...!!!

    ReplyDelete

    1. I agree, Jane! It IS hard. The only thing that makes it easier for me is that not all adaptations interest me. :)

      Appreciate you visiting. :)

  14. I just started reading the Throne of Glass series, and I'm in love with Sarah J Maas's writing. Her characters and plots or very vivid!! I hope you get around to it, I promise you won't regret it :)

    1. Ahhh! This makes me excited, Grace. Glad you are enjoying them - and thanks for the nudge. Hopefully I'll get them read soon. :)

    1. Good to know; thank you for sharing, Lisa! I'm hoping to read BOTH prior to seeing the films, but m y time to do that is - *sigh* - slipping away. Guess I'll have to find a surge of power reading! :)

  18. I'm definitely going to have to read The Light Between the Oceans - I've heard the audio is very good. :)

  20. Ah, if only I could read all these in one fell swoop. All of them sound so amazing! I did read 'The Problem with Forever' and all I remember was that I liked the emotion in the story. Great mix of reads, Rissi. :)

    1. Right!? Can this be a superpower!? ;)

      Good to know, Bekah! I don't know if I'll love 'Forever,' but I have hopes for it - and sometimes a good emotional read is what we need.

      Thanks. I thought it wound up being a good genre mix too!
