Top Ten Tuesday: The Never-Ending TBR List!

nfn tttHappy 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:

Wild by Cheryl Strayed cover1. Wild by Cheryl Strayed

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.

One More Thing by B.J. Novak2. One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak

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!

red queen cover3. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

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!

All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld4. All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld

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!

Vicious by V.E. Schwab5. Vicious by V.E. Schwab

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!

Hold Me Closer The Tiny Cooper Story by David Levithan cover6. Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story by David Levithan

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!

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen7. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen 

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!

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens8. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

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. 

The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide9. The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide

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!

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee10. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

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!

What books have you recently added to your TBR list? What do you think of the books on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Such good and interesting reads. (I’m all for rereading To Kill a Mockingbird. That book though…).
    Really want to get my hands on Wild by Cheryl Strayed!

  2. Red Queen is really just your typical YA dystopian read… at first. The beginning was nothing special, and to be honest, I came close to giving up on it more than once. But I’m so glad I stuck through the book till the end because stuff got clever and I did not see the huge twist coming. The characters were nothing to boast about, but I still enjoyed the book all the same. Hopefully you will too! 😀

    And wow, I love the cover for All the Birds, Singing! Based on your description it also sounds like something I’d like — emotional and haunting stories are my best friends, haha.

    Vicious! It’s so rare to see someone else who hasn’t read it yet, because most of my bloggy friends have all read and loved it. I know, I’m really looking forward to this anti-hero, too. I’ve had enough of honorable heroes; give me someone who isn’t completely good! And eeep, I’m so glad that you enjoyed A Darker Shade of Magic. I’m seriously missing out on so many books…

    Definitely going to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird. It’s probably one of my favorite classics! I’m curious as to what the sequel will be about, since our beloved Scout will be all grown up now. Great list, Holly! And thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. 🙂

    1. Yay, someone else who hasn’t read Vicious yet! You’re right, it seems like everyone has read it and I’m definitely missing out on some awesomeness here. I just got off the holds list for A Darker Shade of Magic from my library, so I can finally continue reading it! I got a preview of it from NetGalley but then I had to wait to start reading it again and it’s been torture. I hope you enjoy it whenever you get around to reading it! 🙂
