TTT - Books I've recently added to my TBR

Another Tuesday already? Must be time to talk about books and link up with the Broke and the Bookish!

I have a confession to make, you guys. Compared to most book blogging types, my TBR list is tiny. It takes a LOT for me to add something to my TBR, mostly because I have a tendency to forget to check it when I'm looking for new things to read... My TBR shelf on Goodreads is currently at 84 books, and even having that many on there makes me a little nervous. And yet, I know people who have 1500 books on their TBR. Nope. Nope nope nope nope nope. 

ANYWAY. On with my list! 

1. We All Looked Up - Tommy Wallach
I have an ARC of this from Simon & Schuster sitting upstairs on my bookshelf waiting to be read. I just have to finish one more library book, and then I'll be diving into it as soon as possible! 

2. Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel
Everyone seems to be reading this one right now and every review I've seen has absolutely raved about it, so I'm desperate to get my hands on it as soon as possible. 

3. A Darker Shade of Magic - V.E. Schwab
I'm pretty sure at least half the people I follow on Twitter and Goodreads have spent the past month flailing about this book. I finally caved and added it to my TBR, and now it's just hanging out on my Kindle waiting for me to get around to it. 

4. The Stranger You Seek - Amanda Kyle Williams
I love a good thriller/crime novel from time to time, so when Ashlea - the queen of thrillers - recommended this one to me, I immediately went and added it to my shelf. 

5. Magic Shifts - Ilona Andrews
The Kate Daniels series is definitely one of my favourite urban fantasy series, and I'm stupidly excited that the next book comes out in August. I'm not entirely sure how this wasn't on my TBR shelf until a week or so ago, but there we have it... 

6. Their Fractured Light - Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
It took me ages to get around to reading This Shattered World, the second book in this series. And it wasn't until I finished it that I got around to adding book 3 to my TBR list. 

7. Not Otherwise Specified - Hannah Moskowitz
A black bisexual teenage ballerina narrator? That sounds pretty damned fabulous to me, and it's a perfect addition to my Diverse Books Project. 

8. Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story - David Levithan
I love David Levithan's writing, and Tiny Cooper was definitely my favourite part of Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I honestly have no idea how I didn't know about this book earlier, but I'm pretty excited about reading it, so obviously it's on my TBR. 

9. Happy Again - Jennifer E. Smith
I really liked This Is What Happy Looks Like, and actually gave it to a friend's teenaged sister for Christmas a few years ago. So I'm pretty excited about this novella and getting to see what happens next for these characters.

10. Summer Days and Summer Nights - Stephanie Perkins (and half the damn universe)
I need this like I need air. I LOVED My True Love Gave to Me, so I'm pretty damned excited to see what Perkins (and others) come up with for a series of short stories about summer love, even if that title does make me think of Grease... 

What's on your list this week?

  1. My TBR is around 90-something books I guess and I'm usually hesitant about adding stuff because there is so much I want to read and so little time.
    Tiny Dancer, I need to get my hands on that at some point.

  2. Seriously. I would definitely not cope with having 1500 books on my TBR. How would you even remember what was on there??

  3. Ooh, I hadn't even heard of Summer Days and Nights. I WANT. And also yes and yes and yes to Their Fractured Light. I AM LITERALLY SO EXCITED FOR THAT BOOK I COULD EXPLODE. *hyperventilates quietly in the corner*

  4. I'm desperately trying to keep my TBR on GR under 100. How does one suppose to tacke 1500 books on a TBR?! I don't understand.

  5. I'm like you, too; I don't like a TBR that's too big.

    I went off in a different direction: Great Books that Independent Booksellers Recommend.

  14. I don't even know how I would cope with a TBR of over 100 books. The very idea of it makes me twitchy.
