Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday once again, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week I’ll be updating you all on recent additions to my TBR list, since the topic is Top Ten Books Recently Added to My TBR List. So, in no particular order:
I recently mentioned this book in a previous Top Ten Tuesday (click here to check it out!) and I’m still really looking forward to reading it. My interest was sparked when I watched Essiebutton’s video about it and saw that she really enjoyed it. Hiking is one of my favorite things to do outdoors, so it seems even more fitting.
I love B.J. Novak for his hilarious work on the television show The Office, which holds special place in my heart. Naturally when I heard he was writing a book I immediately knew I had to get my hands on it! This book is a collection of many short stories- and I mean short stories (some of them are only two or three pages!). I have no doubt that this will be a memorable read!
Honestly, I’ve heard nothing but great things about this new YA fantasy novel! I’ve known about it since before it came out, but just recently I’ve seriously thought about picking it up and diving right in. The premise is intriguing and I’ve been in the mood for fantasy lately, which means that this one is a serious contender for being read soon!
I came across this book while watching a Booktube video one day, and I was immediately intrigued by the synopsis. The setting- a remote British isle- is interesting and the story itself sounds heart-wrenching and perhaps even haunting. Come to find out it is actually one of two winners of the Barnes and Noble 2014 Discover Award, which is pretty cool!
After reading her recently published novel A Darker Shade of Magic, I have a newfound adoration for V.E. Schwab! I’ve heard amazing things about this novel, especially due to the supposedly fantastic anti-hero that it the main character. If it’s anything like A Darker Shade of Magic, is has to be good!
PEOPLE, THERE IS A COMPANION NOVEL TO WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON!! I loved Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan, and that’s why I’m so excited that there’s a companion to it! This is supposed to be the story of the musical that Tiny Cooper created in the first book- and it’s actually written as a script! The parts of it that were in the first book were HILARIOUS, and I’m sure this installment will be just as awesome!
When I was in middle school and the first year or so of high school I read A LOT of books by Sarah Dessen, especially during the summer months. They were such feel-good books that always gave me that warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Her newest novel is expected to come out on May 5, 2015, just in time for me to make it part of my summer reading plans!
I was blown away by Great Expectations, and I now have a new admiration for Charles Dickens. I’m really interested in reading more of his work, and Oliver Twist seems to be a popular favorite. Since this is also about a poor boy, I’d love to compare and contrast it with Great Expectations.
I was initially interested in this novel because of the beautifully simple cover, but as soon as I read the synopsis of it I knew that I was going to have to read it at some point. It’s about a cat that breathes life back into a couple’s relationship- I don’t know what’s sweeter or more heart-warming than that!
I read this novel in my ninth grade English class and did not intend to reread it for a while. However, when I found out that a sequel, Go Set a Watchman, is going to be published this summer I immediately decided to put the first book right back on my TBR list. Let’s hope I love it as much as I did the first time!
There are so many great books to read- now if only I had the time to read them all! I’m hoping that as the school year comes to a close I’ll have more and more time to read. Fingers crossed!
