What’s On My TBR? #1
Like most book lovers or book bloggers I have a Goodreads. I wanted to write a post about my current TBR on Goodreads but there are currently over 200 books on the list. Whoops. I decided it would be easier and more interesting if I posted about what some of the most recent additions to my list are and why I added them. I don’t own any of these books but Christmas is coming up and if I don’t end up buying them, I am a big library user anyway.
What Am I Currently Reading?
I am currently reading One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva. I’ve known about this book for years but ended up taking it off my tbr last year because I didn’t think I would read it. But, I saw it at the library last month and figured, if it’s there why not read it?
TBR| What Am I Excited About?
Jughead Volume 1 by Chip Zdarsky, Erica Henderson (Illustrations)
I’ve never read an Archie comic but I’ve heard good things about this one so I figured it would be a good place to start. Jughead Jones seems like a weird and quirky guy and I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble he gets into!
Beast by Brie Spangler
A transgender, modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast? Beauty and the Beast is my favourite movie of all time and I’ve never read a book with a trans character so I figured this would be a great place to start. I’ve heard that this book goes really deep into transphobia and doesn’t skip over the gritty bits. This sounds like an important book and I can’t wait to read it.
Six of Crows (Six of Crows Duology #1) by Leigh Bardugo
I think almost everyone in the bookish community knows about this duology, and yet I still haven’t picked it up. I plan on reading the Grisha trilogy before reading this duology so I have some better knowledge of the world. I’ve heard amazing things so all I can hope is that I’m not let down.
The Wise Man’s Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle #2) by Patrick Rothfuss
I recently finished book one on this trilogy and I really enjoyed it. Naturally, I can’t wait to read the next book.
Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan
I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to pick up this trilogy but the other day I was binge watching booktube and I found out that there’s a deaf character, which has pushed this to the top of my TBR list. Plus, it’s Rick Riordan, I have to read it, right?
The Flash Volume 6: Out of Time by Robert Venditti (Goodreads Author), Van Jensen (Goodreads Author), Brett Booth (Illustrations)
I have only read volume 1-5 in this series and I honestly love it. This series is brilliant, definitely recommend for fans of the show!
TBR | What’s New?
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
A new Marissa Meyer novel? Duh, I’m gonna read it.
I am a massive Gilmore Girls, it’s honestly ridiculous. The audiobook for this is being released at the end of the month, after the revival is released on Netflix. I think this will be a perfect way to close off the show. I love Lauren Graham, she has an amazing voice and her personality is goals, so naturally I am hyped for this!
Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2) by Rick Riordan
I’ve not read the first novel but like I said before this trilogy is right up the top of my list.
TBR | Get Hyped!
America Volume 1 by Jamie McKelvie (Artist), Matt Wilson (Colorist)
I read Young Avenger Volume 1 at the start of the year and fell in love with the characters so when I heard they were making a new series with America I immediately added it to my evergrowing TBR.
Down Among the Sticks and Stones by Seanon Macguire
I read Every Heart A Doorway a few months ago and devoured it, the characters were amazing and unique and the concept was awesome so naturally I will be picking up book 2 next year!
