Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR

For info about the weekly topics and how to participate, click here.

When it comes to reading off TBR reads, I’m sure all bibliophiles can agree that the list just goes on and on… and on and on. Naturally, coming up with just ten books I’d recently added to my TBR was fairly difficult considering the fact that I add books to my TBR pile on a day-to-day basis (I seriously have little to no self-restraint and this is why I will never get that pile down). Even as I type this up, I’ve added more. So, this isn’t really accurate. These are merely the ones I could think of off the top of my head. Because, hey, if I can remember them, then I really must want to read them.

Edit: I also happened to type this post up way too early because I ended up knocking out four books on this list already. Again… Whoops.

    • I’m really looking forward to More Than This ever since I finished up Ness’ The Rest of Us Just Live Here. He has a fairly likable writing style (that seems to fit well with audiobooks). That being said, I get what you mean about that beginning. I put off reading more of More Than This after reading the first place. I suppose I must slog through to get to greatness!


  1. I’ve only read More Than This, Six of Crows and All The Bright Places from this list and all of them were amazing so you will probably have a great time reading them. I haven’t did my post yet but Simon vs the Homo Sapien agenda will definitely be on there. I’m dying to read it!

    • I cannot wait to get to those. I’m currently reading Ness’ The Rest of Us Just Live Here, and I’m really digging his writing style. Simon vs. the Homo Sapien Agenda has been popping up EVERYWHERE, and I am weak to the pressure to read it.

      • I think what made it better for me (since everyone thinks it’s the literal worst) is that I experienced it in audiobook format. The guy who read it was PHENOMENAL… I’m also realizing that I’m having a life moment where books like The Rest of Us Just Live Here resonates with me and makes me feel all of the things.

      • I don’t think it’s the literal worst, just a little disappointing but I still enjoyed it. Sometimes it might just be the format you experience the book in, but if the story if you can related to the story and connect with it than of course you’re going to enjoy it loads!

  2. I’m terrible about reviews, but I loved Dream Thieves. Six of Crows is a great start to a new series, if a bit wicked at the end. Persepolis is a fascinating look at a pivotal moment in time, and Dumplin’ is funny and brave. Happy reading!
    I’m working on Simon vs. …, and All the Bright Places made my TBR recently, too!

    • I cannot wait until my library gets Six of Crows back in its possession. I’m pretty much reeling from the suspense of finally getting to read. Also, I’m happy to hear such good things about Persepolis. I don’t usually get into the serious graphic novels, but I couldn’t pass it up when I spotted it in the bookstore last month.

      Happy reading to you as well!


    • That’s so great! The art style is definitely one I know I’m going to gush over. I’m trying to decide when to read it. It’s just been casually chilling out on my bookshelf for about a month now.
