Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, you make a list of ten books surrounding a certain topic. This week is all about the TBR! I’ll be showing you the 10 books I recently added to my to-read list on Goodreads!
- The Shadow of the Torturer (Book of the New Sun #1) by Gene Wolfe
It is the tale of young Severian, an apprentice in the Guild of Torturers on the world called Urth, exiled for committing the ultimate sin of his profession — showing mercy toward his victim — and follows his subsequent journey out of his home city of Nessus.
- Making Faces by Amy Harmon
Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl’s love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior’s love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.
- Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey
This is basically about a girl who plays soccer and is training for the Olympics. And then there is Coach Wilder, who is strictly off limits. It just sounds like a fun and quick new adult.
- From Ashes (From Ashes #1) by Molly McAdams
Another new adult read! I’m pretty sure it has a love triangle, so I’m still not 100% convinced on it. But it has a 4.16 average rating on Goodreads and about 22.000 ratings, so I’m assuming a lot of people really liked it. I’m curious!
- The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis
Maggie Sanders might be blind, but she won’t invite anyone to her pity party. Ever since losing her sight six months ago, Maggie’s rebellious streak has taken on a life of its own, culminating with an elaborate school prank. Maggie called it genius. The judge called it illegal.
- Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling
It’s basically a book full of advice from J.K. Rowling… HELLO, I NEED THIS.
- An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I’m pretty sure you all know what this book is about. I’m excited to read it!
- Boys Like You by Juliana Stone
For Monroe Blackwell, one small mistake has torn her family apart–leaving her empty and broken. There’s a hole in her heart that nothing can fill. That no one can fill. And a summer in Louisiana with her grandma isn’t going to change that… Nathan Everets knows heartache firsthand when a car accident leaves his best friend in a coma. And it’s all his fault. He should be the one lying in the hospital. The one who will never play guitar again. He doesn’t deserve forgiveness, and a court-appointed job at the Blackwell B&B isn’t going to change that…
- The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight #1) by Melissa Grey
Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.
- Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) by Diana Gabaldon
The sequel to Outlander! I recently finished Outlander and really loved it, so I immediately added the second book to my to-read list.
So those are the books I recently added to my to-read list on Goodreads! Have you read any of these? Share your thoughts on them -without spoiling the book though…
