Happy Tuesday, Booknerdigans!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme created by the ladies over at the Broke and the Bookish. This features all things book-related that one considers as personal best.
This week’s topic is about recently added books on the TBR pile. I haven’t even exhausted my the very long queue of books I had to read in 2015 but being the royal procrastinator that I am, those books would sadly spend more time in the shelf. This 2016, there are a lot of new releases I badly want to get my hands on which I will feature here. Also, I have a ton of books added from other bloggers’ positive testimony.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Reason for adding: THE SIX-OF-CROWS-LIKE HYPE (Just saying I’m curious)
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Jenna’s (@ Reading with Jenna) ravings on The Winner’s Crime is highly infectious. I badly want to read a book that would leave me a strong feeling of devastation, happiness, elation or whatever. I JUST NEED A BOOK THAT STANDS OUT PLEASE. I have a feeling this is it.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
This book has a promising overview. The violinist lead reminds me of Jem Carstairs. I still have a lot of pending book series to finish but it won’t hurt adding something more, yeah? Plus, its Goodreads rating is booming. I just hope this is as good as it is marketed to be.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Yes. I’m starting to avoid cringing away from classics. I recently read Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald and this classic story was mentioned like a hundred times.. more like Mr. Darcy only, actually. I acquired an audio book of this which, gods help me, I hope I wouldn’t doze off at.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
The cover speaks to be read. I love it! The graphics, the font, and all. I don’t know about you but covers actually make a factor for me in considering a book. More than that, the themes this book contains seemed new and powerful.
The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp
This was adapted into a movie in 2013. I’m not that big of a fan of Shailene Woodly and Miles Teller but I loved them in Divergent. My positive thoughts on the movie, The Spectacular Now, exceeded the opposite. And well, since generally books are better than movies, I’m going to try the printed words.
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
This book never stops showing anywhere. I frequently see it on WordPress posts, on Twitter, on Instagram, and a lot on Goodreads. Like it manifests a sign for me to go and finally pick it up. I know I resolved not to read the book with hype as the sheer reason, but I just feel it’s more than what the craze expresses.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I will read this book after I go to the cinema to see it next week. Sometimes, movies can be an indicator if a book deserves to be picked up.
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
The first book wasn’t an outright hit for me (though there were still forgivable points that compensated) but who am I not to give second chances? Victoria Aveyard, you have the second book to redeem yourself.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I haven’t read ACOTAR and already I’m adding this on my TBR. What is on my mind?? The book resting on my shelf will be turning 1 soon. Maybe when ACOMAF is released, I will be propelled to get my nose on this book.
