12 Most Recent Books I've Added to my To-Read Pile

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

As much as I would like to thank all my gift cards from Christmas for most of my January haul, I also haven't received some of the books I've ordered yet. Free shipping is always amazing but you also have to wait extra long to get them in the mail, that way. Back in the first year of blogging, I used to do a monthly haul post and it just occurred to me that I don't really do that anymore. Now, I just post a lovely book haul over on my Instagram. Is that something I should bring back on here?

I've separated this list into two sections: one for my physical TBR and the other for the books I added recently on Goodreads. Lately, I have been focusing on upcoming releases so all the books I've added on Goodreads aren't out yet. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is: Top 12 Most Recent Books I've Added to my TBR:

Physical TBR

An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason by Virginia Boecker: I recently heard about this one and went right out to purchase it. And it has everything I absolutely adore in books: a disguised identity, Shakespeare, star-crossed lovers, and more.

Meet Cute by various authors: We could always use some more meet cutes in our lives. And several short stories that feature them-- I'm swooning already.

Shit It by Britta Lundin: I was so excited to finally find a copy of this. However, after reading a lot of reviews which say this one is extremely problematic, I have since lost interest. I will read it one day but can't tell you how soon that will be. Ship It follows Claire, a fan, who confronts the main lead of her favorite TV show when he rejects her fan theory. When there's a PR blunder, the show reaches out to Claire to make it all right.

Neverwake by Amy Plum: I finished Dreamfall, the first in the duology, last month and knew I needed to dive into this one soon. This series follows a sleep study gone wrong when an earthquake hits and all the participants fall into connected comas, where they each share the same nightmare space. I just hope they all wake up but the title of this one feels like a huge spoiler.

What If It's Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera: Finally, right?! I'm excited for a fluffy romance!

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes: I've heard amazing things about this but I don't even know what it's about. However, I was approved on Netgalley for Romanov and was hoping to check out her writing style before I dive into her newest one.

Books-to-be-Released TBR

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell (2019): Is anyone else incredibly happy that the books spell out, "Carry On, Wayward Son"? I liked Carry On a lot so I'm excited Rowell is giving us a sequel!

Hungry Hearts edited by Elise Chapman (6/18/19): An anthology about food, culture, and family. The stomach is already grumbling in anticipation!

Maybe This Time by Kasie West (7/9/19): A new Kasie West; yes, please! This follows Sophie, a florist, who attends lots of events for her clients. And every time, Andrew, the son of a fancy chef, is always getting in her way. What starts as annoyance quickly becomes something else. 

Enchantee by Gita Trelease (2/5/19): Set in Paris in 1789, Camille infiltrates the royal ranks at court in order to save her family. It's set in France, that's all I needed to know. 

Broken Throne by Victoria Aveyard (5/7/19): A new Aveyard book and its a short story collection set in the Red Queen world? Yes! Please tell me it'll tie up all those loose ends from War Storm.

Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare (11/19/19): I may not be finished with her previous series, but I am ready for whatever Clare writes! To be honest, I wasn't expecting another book in the Shadowhunters world but you can bet I'm going to read it, regardless.

  2. OOh nice ones! Some new to me and some familiar! I read Neverwake last year and really liked it! Though I probably would've done better had I read the duology back to back! Lol! Hope you enjoy all of these reads once you get to read them!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
