Hello, Bookish Buddies, and welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday post in a long ass time! I’ve missed this meme a lot, since school has kept me away from my blog, but school isn’t a thing I have to worry about for the next three months! Yay! Anyway, this meme is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s topic is Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added to My TBR List. Since there’s no rhyme or reason as to what books I add to my TBR, I’ve decided to take out the genre part from my post and just talk about the last ten books I’ve added to my TBR. Let’s get into the books!
1. You by Caroline Kepnes
I found out about You yesterday in Hannah @ A Clockwork Reader’s Slytherin Book Recommendations video, which features books with morally gray characters. Since morally gray characters are my favorite kinds of characters to read about, I thought I’d check it out.
2. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
I heard about Wuthering Heights from the same video mentioned above, and it sounded cool. It also features morally gray characters and it’s told in alternating timelines, which is also something I love in books.
3. The Gender Game by Bella Forrest
The Gender Game was actually recommended to me by Goodreads, and I read the first few sentences of the synopsis, so onto the TBR it went.
4. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
Despite what you may think from my many rants about how much the contemporary genre pisses me off, I’m always looking for new ones I might enjoy. I read a review of The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by my friend Naomï, and it sounded like it had potential. I suggest you check out her review, she gives some good insight into the book.
5. We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
We Are the Ants is a favorite book of one of my favorite booktubers, BooksandLala. It also sounded like a book I would enjoy, so I added it to the TBR.
6. The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
The Red Pyramid was recommended to me by Carol (I’d link you, but wordpress doesn’t want to show me your blog for some reason) on one of my Percy Jackson reviews. She said she was interested to here my thoughts on it, so onto the TBR it went.
7. Into the Bright Unknown by Rae Carson
Seeing as I enjoyed the first and second books of this trilogy, I wanted to make sure I had the last book on my TBR for when it is released.
8. Broken Skies by Theresa Kay
I read a post by someone I forget (if you wrote a post featuring this book and your opinions on it, please comment below so I can link to your post) who really enjoyed this book, and it sounded really cool. From the Goodreads synopsis, it sounds a lot like The Fifth Wave.
9. A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
So I heard about A Northern Light quite a few years ago (the end of eighth grade, to be exact) from my favorite english teacher. She was talking about using this book for summer reading instead of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn for the next eighth grade class. I personally felt robbed because I was bored out of my mind reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and here the next eighth grade class was getting to read an epic mystery.
10. Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs
Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of newsletters from authors I’ve never heard of, so I’ve just been adding their books to my TBR. Future Shock is one of those books.
