Top Ten Tuesday : Recent additions to my Goodreads TBR

Hello all! So, I don’t have a list of books I want to read just for Spring 2019, like the topic of this weeks TTT suggests. So I’m just going to list the recent additions to my Goodreads TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday is currently being hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl.



Well Met: An enemies-to-lovers rom-com set in a small town. Count me in.

 
Releases – September 3rd.

 

 

Skyward: So what if I haven’t been able to read Mistborn yet? I’m still allowed to add another book by Brandon Sanderson to my TBR. Okay?

 

Releases – November 6th.

 

 


Sapphire Flames: The latest book on the Hidden Legacy universe which I really love. I’m excited to meet my favorite cast of characters.

 

 

Releases – August 27th.

 

The Seduction Expert: A contemporary romance with the main theme of women empowerment? Can I resist?

 
Releases – May 27th.

 

 

Husband Material: This one’s about a widow who relies on data and algorithms to find balance in her life. The premise interests me. But the reviews have been mixed. So I might not end up reading it. Who knows?

 

 

Releases – December 30th.

 

 

Passion On Park Avenue: I can always trust Lauren Layne to appease my heart with a good romcom. This one has the enemies-to-lovers trope that I simply adore. And it’s about 3 friends. Definitely ticks all the boxes for me.

 

 

Releases – May 28th.

 


Messy, Wonderful Us: A women on a journey to Italy to find out more about her mother with her best friend on tow. I always love myself a good fiction focusing on families and friendships. I hope to not be disappointed by this one.

 
Releases – May 30th.

 

 

Say You Still Love Me: K. A. Tucker? Yes. Second chance romance? Yes. A rich girl and a guy from the wrong side of the tracks? Yes. Please please don’t let me down!

 

Releases – August 6th.

 

 


The Friend Zone: The maid of honor about to secretly go through a medical procedure which would make her unable to conceive. A best man who wants a big family some day. The attraction is real. So is the conflict. I can’t wait to see how the author handles such a great premise!

 

Releases – July 9th.

 

The Bride Test: I liked The Kiss Quotient a lot. But I’d have loved it if I’d read it when I was in a mood for the kind of romance it was. So I’m hell bent on picking up The Bride Test, a sequel to the Kiss Quotient, when I’m in the right mood for this. But make no mistake, I’ll definitely read this one.

 

Releases – May 7th.

 

 


 

 

TOP TEN TUESDAY : The Ten Most Recent Additions to My TBR List

Hello all! Back with another TTT entry for another week. I’ll just name the most recent entries to my TBR based on my Goodreads Want-To-Read list.

Top Ten Tuesday is a blog meme hosted by the awesome That Artsy Reader Girl.

What The Wind Knows 

Amy Harmon is one of my top favorite contemporary authors. And I absolutely loved the last historical fiction she wrote – From Sand And Ash. She’s a master at creating a mood in her books. This one’s a time-travel fantasy set in the Ireland of 1921. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

Goodreads Link – here.

 

 


The Place On Dalhousie

I could write essays on how much I love Melina Marchetta, okay? History suggests that if I read a book written by her, I’m bound to love it. I’ve been waiting for this book since I read the short story When Rosie Met Jim which is sort of a prologue to this book back in 2017. This book couldn’t come soon enough.

Goodreads Link – here.

 

 


Circe

I love Greek Mythology, retellings and strong women. This book happens to have all of them. Need I say more?

 

Goodreads Link – here.

 

 

 


The Poppy War

I found out about this book a little later than I’d have liked thanks to a friend’s review of it on Goodreads. The premise, the genre and the word-of-mouth – everything about this book compelled me to add it to my TBR.

 

Goodreads Link – here.

 


The Unhoneymooners

Two words. Christina Lauren.

A wedding? The bridesmaid and the best man? Hijacking a honeymoon? A lie about being married?

Gimme already!

Goodreads Link – here.

 

 

The Girl He Used To Know

This is one of the very first books I requested for in Netgalley… and got refused. So this was one of those cases of wanting what you can’t have (for the time being). And of course I love the sound of the book.

 

Goodreads Link – here.

 

 

We Came Here To Forget

The cover was the first thing that attracted me. The premise of a young olympic skier escaping to Argentina after losing everything and reinventing herself with a group of expats was what sold it for me.  Hoping that it will be a good one.

Goodreads Link – here.

 

 

 


The Vanishing Stair

I’ve just started Truly Devious. And I’m really liking it so far. So I just went ahead and added the sequel to my TBR. I’m hoping to love the series even more as I go ahead.

 

Goodreads Link – here.

 

 


The Beautiful

I can’t remember the last time I was this intrigued by the premise of a Young Adult with vampires. This one also happens to be a historical fiction. And this is Renée Ahdieh we’re talking about. Can you blame me for having high hopes?

 

 

Goodreads Link – here.


Park Avenue Summer

Mad Men meets Devil Wears Prada. This book promises an insider’s look at the rise of Helen Gurley Brown- the woman who changed the dynamics of what magazines would do as an editor-in-chief at Cosmopolitan – through the eyes of her assistant who I assume is fictional.

I’m really intrigued and excited by the sound of this book. Hope it won’t disappoint.

This is it. Fingers crossed that these books live up to my expectations!
2019, please don’t let me down!

Top Ten Tuesday : Book Wishlist

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE!!!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic was books you want to see under your Christmas Tree. Since I don’t celebrate Christmas, I’ll just go with the alternate of Book Wishlist.

I’ll talk about the books I would love to get as gifts. Here we go!


BRIBES ( Books I’d probably already have read by now if I’d gotten them as gifts)

 

The Great Alone
This book made a failure out of me because it has been in my tbr list for half the year almost now, and I still haven’t read it. SMH.

 

 

 


The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

I’ve only heard amazing stuff about this book! Besides, the premise is so interesting and I know I’ll be mindblown when I read it. And I really want to read it!

 


Circe

I don’t get to read much mythological fictions considering my love for them. I’ve been hearing great things about Circe that makes me want to read it!

 

 


The Children of Blood and Bone

At this point, I feel like I might be the only one who hasn’t read this book. I’m disappointed in myself.

 

 


The Hate U Give

The guilt is very high for me still not having read this book yet. But the thing with me is the more time passes with me not having picked a book, the lower it goes down my TBR pile.

 


 

HOARD ( Books I have read but would still want more of)

 

Muse Of Nightmares

I own the E-book. But this was one of my best reads of the year. So, I want to own a hardcover version of this book. But I’m too broke at the moment to be able to afford this. Meh.

 

 


Six of Crows

I know I already own this book. But guys, have you seen this collector’s edition cover? How could I not wish to own the hardback of this version? HOW?!

 


COMING SOON (Upcoming releases I’d like as gifts)

 


The Wicket King

This releases at the beginning of January and I’ve already seen so many lucky people get the ARC. Argh! I’m so freaking jealous of you guys!

 

 


A Place Without You

I only need the see the name Jewel E. Ann and that’s it. It’s an instant yes from me. This book releases on January 1. Perfect way to start the year. Am I right?

 


The Kiss Thief

I haven’t read an Arranged Marriage trope in a long time. I am intrigued by the blurb too. Gimme already!

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah : I’ve heard such good stuff about this book and the author in general that I can’t wait to dive into this!

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine | Gail Honeyman : I’ve been meaning to start this for months now. Hopefully, putting it here will give me the kick I need to start it!

Children Of Blood And Bone| Tony Adeyemi : Another book I’ve been delaying to read. I have no excuses for not having started it yet. I really need to start it asap!

Vicious | V. E. Schwab : You can’t make me start a book I’ve been delaying if a sequel has been announced. That was the case for Vicious. But now that the sequel is almost here, I’ve got no excuse to not start this soon.


So, there you go! I hope I can actually read all these books and enjoy them! Can’t wait to see everyone else’s lists!
