Top Ten Tuesday #8: Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR



This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


I follow a lot of blogs, so I read a lot of reviews. You all give me great suggestions. ALL. THE. TIME. I have way too many books on my TBR list, but here are the last 10 books I added to my TBR list.


The Restaurant Critic's Wife by Elizabeth LaBan

I added this book after reading Julie's review over at Booking Mama. I thought this would be a good book selection for my kindergarten moms book club. I've added it to my list of ideas for our March selection.

Even if we don't pick it for book club, I'll probably check it out because it sounds like a cute and fun read.





The Distance from A to Z by Natalie Blitt

After reading Tiff's review at Mostly YA Lit, I put this book on my TBR list, and I almost bought the Kindle book because it's only $1.99. But I have a ton of eARCs on my Kindle app right now, so I decided I need to get through those before I add anything else.

But this book sounds really good. I love contemporary YA books with a little more substance to them, and her review definitely made it sound like I would enjoy this book. I'll hopefully get to it soon.




Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

I am not entirely sure what this book is going to be, but it's Rainbow Rowell, so I need to read it as soon as it comes out. I'm guessing it will be an ebook only, so I'll have to buy it once it's released.







The Vegetarian by Han Kang

This book sounds really different and interesting, and it's pretty short. I added it to my TBR after reading Steph's review at Smart Dames Clever Books.

It's another book I'm going to suggest to my moms book club. We have a length restriction, and it's been really hard to find books under 300 pages to suggest.





Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brene Brown

I was inspired to read (well most likely listen) to this book after listening to Modern Mrs. Darcy's second episode of her new podcast, What Should I Read Next? I hadn't heard of Brene Brown, but this book sounded most interesting to me.

We'll see if I actually listen to this book. Sometimes I can be a huge procrastinator with non-fiction.



The Lost Husband by Katherine Center

In that same episode of her podcast, Anne mentioned books that fall into "the sweet spot" because serious literature and fluff. I linked over to her post about these books, and I found this one that looked intriguing. I have already read and enjoyed 3 of the 5 recommendations that fit this category, and the 5th was already on my TBR list.

I am also recommending this book to my moms book club.




Strike by Delilah S. Dawson

While reviewing books I read in 2015, I remember that Hit was supposed to be a sequel, so I looked to see if the sequel was listed in Goodreads yet. Sure enough, it was.

I enjoyed the first book well enough, so I added this book to my TBR. I won't necessarily read it ASAP after the release, but I'd like to get to it sometime.





Zero Day by Jan Gangsei

I added this book to my list after reading Jen's review at YA Romantics. I have enjoyed the few political YA books that I've read recently, so I thought I should check this one out.

And it has alternating POVs, which is one of my favorite writing styles.





In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

Grace at Rebel Mommy's Book Blog wrote a really good review of this book last week, and even though I don't usually read this type of book, I'm determined to check it out.

She assured me it won't be too scary.






Leave Me by Gayle Forman

I haven't had the best luck with Gayle Forman yet, but I am always intrigued when an author crosses over from YA to Adult or vice versa. So when I saw this book listed on Waiting for Wednesday last week by Tiff at Mostly YA Lit, I decided I had to check it out.

The adult plot sounds VERY interesting to me. I would suggest this one for my moms book club too, but it's too long. I'll have to read it on my own.



What have you added to your TBR recently?

  1. Yay for adding A Dark, Dark Wood! I am so excited for Leave Me. I Think the blurb sounds really good. I totally missed a new book by Rainbow Rowell. So I just added that. The Restaurant Critic's Wife and The Distance from A to Z are ones I am also interested in. Great list!

    1. Me too! I finally found some other adult fiction book blogs, and it's one that keeps popping up. I'll have a review if I get to it in the near future.

  3. First of all, thanks for the Blog Lovin' recommendation, Kate! I look forward to keeping up on your blog better by adding this to the links I check daily. :-)

    I noticed your comment about difficulty reading non-fiction. I alternate between the two a lot, so if you ever want to challenge yourself to read something in that genre, I'd be happy to give you recommendations!

    1. Cool. I need to see if the library has the audiobook. I prefer to listen to non-fiction.
