TTT: Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday’s are a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish in which anyone who participates creates a Top Ten list of books based on a weekly prompt they provide (the list for advance topics can be found by clicking the link above).  For my own sanity my Top Ten Tuesdays will always be Top Twelve Tuesdays because the graphics just look better that way ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is inspired by Jamie of The Perpetual Page Turner’s New to the Queue blog series.  For this challenge I just went to my Goodreads page and chose 10 books that I’ve added to my TBR recently that I haven’t necessarily talked about a lot on my blog yet.  I didn’t include the next book in a series if I haven’t already read the previous book and many of my choices don’t have covers yet.  In fact, many of my picks are so new that you can’t even preorder them yet!


The Books

1 – Untitled (Fallen Isles Trilogy #1) by Jodi Meadows – This new trilogy by Jodi Meadows sound really intriguing.  There isn’t too much information about it anywhere yet but it does involve illegal dragon trafficking so that sounds pretty promising. (Goodreads)

Heart separator

2 – Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor – As soon as I heard Laini Taylor would be releasing a new book this year I immediately added it to my TBR.  I don’t even need to know what this is about to be excited for it!  (Goodreads)

Heart separator

3 – Three Dark Crowns (Untitled #1) by Kendare Blake – In 2015 I fell in love with Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood duology and I’m so excited to read everything else she writes.  I heard Kendare talk about her new series on the First Draft podcast and I literally paused in the middle so I could add it to my Goodreads TBR.  It’s inspired by bees and it follows three sisters on a remote island but only one of them is destined to be queen.  In order to claim their throne, they’re tasked with assassinating the other two sisters. (Goodreads)

Heart separator

4 – Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell – Rainbow Rowell is an auto buy author for me so when I heard about Kindred Spirits there was no question I would be getting it as soon as humanly possible.  Kindred Spirits is a novella being released for World Book Day (it’s only 96 pages!) and there is no information about it at all but I know I’m going to love it. (Goodreads)

Heart separator

5 – Caraval by Stephanie Garber (Untitled #1) – I heard about this book yesterday while watching Alexa’s ALA book haul and as soon as she said it’s pitched as the YA The Night Circus I added it to my shelf.  Upon reading more about it, the description also says that it’s great for fans of Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series so basically I am the target market for this magical new series.  (Goodreads)Heart separator6 – The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee – This is another one that sold me when I heard that it’s a sort of novelization of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.  It’s a bit out of my element as it’s adult historical fiction (it takes place in the 18th century in France) but because I loved Passenger by Alexandra Bracken so much, I’m much more willing to branch out into this new – to – me genre. (Goodreads)Heart separator7 – Wayfarer (Passenger #2) by Alexandra Bracken – Speaking of Passenger… this is an obvious recent add.  I am so in love with the story in the first book and the cliffhanger at the end had me wishing for 2017 because I literally need the conclusion to this duology soon or I don’t know how I can possibly go on! (Time travel + Pirates = BAE) (Goodreads)Heart separator8 – Windwitch (The Witchlands #2) by Susan Dennard – Another sequel I’ll be waiting forever for is the follow up to Susan Dennard’s new series, The Witchlands, the first book being Truthwitch (which is the Spines With Wines book of the month!).  Since the first book just debuted two weeks ago, we have no synopsis yet for book 2 but I NEED it.  Truthwitch was an incredible first book that laid the groundwork for what is sure to be an epic fantasy series.  (Goodreads)Heart separator

9 – Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff – Nevernight is the first book in a new fantasy series by Jay Kristoff who is one half of the author duo behind Illuminae.  What immediately peaked my interest in Nevernight is that it’s a revenge story.  There’s something about revenge stories where the main character dedicates their entire life to exacting revenge against people who’ve wronged their families that really gets me.  I think it’s because of my undying love of The Count of Monte Cristo.  (Goodreads)Heart separator

10 – The Cruel Prince (TheFolk of Air #1) by Holly Black – This new book by Holly Black isn’t due out until 2018 so it’ll be quite a long wait, but I’m excited that Holly is revisiting the world of the Fae.  The Goodreads description has a quote by Holly stating that “this series will delve deeper into the strange, glittering, malicious courts of Faerie than I’ve gone before.”  Yes, please! (Goodreads)

    KRISTIN! There are so many books here that I’m quite excited about, mostly because they happen to be by authors who have written books that I’ve LOVED. (This is namely Jodi, Laini, Alex and Susan!) The Queen of the Night and Nevernight sound spectacular too, and I’m really excited about Caraval!
