I don’t about you, but I simply cannot resist reading is those “recently I’ve added these books to my TBR” posts. They’re completely addictive and I adore seeing what new books are out there or what releases people are getting excited for. Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner does something similar to this with the latest books, television shows, movies, and music she’s added to her ‘queue’. I thought it might be fun to try it out for myself! I did do this once before, but I’m thinking of making it more of a regular thing so it kind fo feels different?
Anyway, I particular love this idea as someone who is trying very, very hard to cut down their TBR. I think this will be a great way to check how well I can justify adding these particular new books to the TBR!
Love Elimination by Sarah Gates – I may be a little biased with this one because a) this author is from my city (which is a big deal ’cause my city is quite small), and b) I went to the author’s book launch last week and she was such a sweetie. This also happens to about reality dating TV shows which aren’t my fave in real life, but it makes this romance sound swoony AF.
Steeplejack by A.J. Hartley – Not only is that cover gorgeous, but the blurb sounds mysterious and steampunky and it is already getting a tonne of early praise. I’m actually really pumped for this release!
A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White – An engrossing story about defying conventions and living up to impossible expectations. This sounds so darn feminist. Hallelujah! I have no interest in baseball (or sports in general, really) but I’m definitely intrigued by this… I cannot believe it’s not going to release until next year, though. *Sobs*. But can we give this marketing team a round of applause for this cover design – it’s so darn clever with the birds and the moon looking like a baseball!
Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer – A fantasy set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae… not only did the synopsis sounds amazing with the rocky sister relationship but a deliciously creepy fae world? War? Yes, please.
Lucky Girl by Amanda Maciel – To be honest, this add is mostly just to give this author a second chance after I disliked her book, Tease. But this year, I’ve also been reading a tonne of ’emotional contemporaries’ with these sorts of darker themes, and I do think this one sounds promising. Hopefully, it’ll be everything that I wanted in This is World the Ends.
100 Hours by Rachel Vincent – Okay, I know. This sounds like a summery version of Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick, but I’m hoping it’ll be better? It has potential. The last paragraph of that synopsis grabbed me. I’m hoping it’ll be suspenseful and edgy. *Fingers crossed*
One Would Think the Deep by Claire Zorn – So. Many. Good. Reviews! Seriously, this book has had so many good reviews lately. Pretty much all my blogging friends are drooling over it. On top of that, Zorn is the queen of Aussie YA and I actually haven’t read anything by her… so that needs to change.
The Dragon’s Price by Matthew J. Kirby – Well, dragons. I don’t need anything more. Dragons. The cover is gross, though.
Blood Red Rose by Rosalyn Eves – Alternative Victorian England. Magic. Sisters. Hungary. Beautiful cover. That is all.
To Catch a Killer by Sheryl Scarborough – Cold cases, murder, mysteries, the FBI, forensics… I’m not even slightly exaggerating when I say this book sounds like it was written for me, personally. Those are literally my all-time favourite ingredients! But *cries ’cause this doesn’t actually release until next year*.
