Top Ten Tuesday: Books I recently added to my TBR

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Ten Books You Recently Added To Your To-Be-Read List

Okay, I’m not going to lie. I was really happy this was such an easy topic this week. I found all of these on my TBR shelf on Goodreads.

The Library at Mount Char by Scott HawkinsBright Lights, Dark Nights by Stephen Emond – Do you know how hard it is to not type “Dark Knight”? Haha. This book is an illustrated YA novel about first love, race, and finding yourself. So glad I got an eARC of this one waiting.

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins – I’m not even really sure how to describe this one. Magic, cults, libraries. Go read that synopsis and try NOT to add it to your TBR. Lucky enough to also have this one as an eARC.

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George – A book about a man who runs a small bookshop where he prescribes books to people? First, why isn’t this a real thing? Second, is it a real thing? Third, YES PLEASE. Also an eARC.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – “The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.” Wuuuut? That sounds awesome. Also, it’s about a girl who’s allergic to the outside world. CanIpleasehavethisrightnow??!!

TThe Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt, illustrated by Oliver Jeffershe Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers – THIS IS A SEQUEL TO THE DAY THE CRAYONS QUIT. Do I really need to explain why this is on my list?

Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman – A book about a 12-year-old book lover and a book scavenger hunt. What else could you want in an MG book?

Bones & All by Camille DeAngelis – This book is about a girl who EATS the people she cares about. When she loves someone, she can’t help herself. This sounds disturbing, gross, and absolutely delightful. If you didn’t already know I was a weirdo, now you do.

And here’s two books I recently added to my (WAY TOO LONG) physical TBR:

We All Looked Up by Tommy WallachWe All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach – An end-of-the-world, figure-out-who-we-really-are book that sounds absolutely wonderful. I had to buy it.

The Alex Crow by Andrew Smith – I’ve never actually read an Andrew Smith book (though I own a signed copy of 100 Sideways Miles and I’ve actually met him. Oops), but this one sounds so. cool. I’m not even really sure how to summarize it though, so go check it out on Goodreads.

  1. I had no idea there was going to be a sequel to The Day the Crayons Quit! AHH! Also, Little Paris Bookshop sounds so so so good. It’s also on my TBR for this year. Bones & All…I actually spoke to the editor about this when I was asking her what her most interesting project was, and at first I was like “oh ew” but then all that passion in her voice and gushing over the plot and the writing has made me very curious. I hope it does well!

    • I can’t wait for the sequel to the Day the Crayons Quit!! One of my absolute favorite picture books.
      Oh, that’s so cool that you were talking to the editor! I love when people get super passionate about projects. 🙂

  2. I agree Good Reads made this list so easy to do! That Library at Mount Char book looks interesting. It might be a little too far out there for me, though. I’ll need to read your review on it before I decide to add it to my TBR!

  3. I’m halfway through We All Looked Up at the minute (HAD to pause for Confess!), and I’m really enjoying it, loving the writing style, and definitely doesn’t feel like a debut. I am finding it a bit slow going, but that could be down to my life at the minute as opposed to the book (picking it up and having to put it down again to go do something). Everything, Everything sounds immense! R x
