Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly returning meme by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is “ten books you’ve recently added to your TBR”.
My goodreads TBR is “only” 80 books long, which would take me over a year to complete if I were to read them all… But I won’t drown in them, I only have a few of the books at home. I went to a book fair this weekend and of course couldn’t leave with books so the following post is not only a TTT but also a book haul. I bought five books (which are the first five on this list).
- A Boy Called M.O.U.S.E. by Penny Dolan — I think this is a childrens book but the premise sounded interesting. It takes place in the 19th century, where Mouse (a little boy) is sent to a orphanage (?) with an evil man called Mr. Button.
- Dangerous by Shannon Hale — Okay to be honest I only got this book because it looked interesting and on the cover it says it is one of the best books James Dashner ever read. How could it be bad if it’s one of his favourites?
- The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon — This book has been out for a while and has been very popular I believe, to be honest I’ve never heard of it before a few months ago.
- Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman — This is the only “adult literary” book I bought at the fair and it reminded me of The Curious Incident of The Dog in Night-Time by Mark Haddon. It’s about a boy and his friend that try to solve the murder of one of their classmates.
- Shadow Web by N.M. Browne — The story of this book starts as the main character finds out she has a doppelganger and they decide to meet. Somehow she ends up in a parallel world? Idk.. it sounds kinda cool.
- A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness — I’ve heard a lot about this book recently, even though it has been out for 5 years, and it has drawn my attention.
- Almost Like Being In Love by Steve Kluger — I’ve read My Most Excellent Year by Steve Kluger multiple times and I love that book so when I found out he wrote more great books I needed to add them to my TBR.
- Last Days of Summer by Steve Kluger — Again more Steve Kluger!
- Radio Silence by Alice Oseman — This book was recommended to me by Eve from Twist in the Taile, because the main character is ace and I’ve been wanting to read about with ace characters for a while. I can’t wait to dive into this one.
- Dreamology by Lucy Keaton — I fell in love with that cover on instagram but I can’t remember who posted a picture of it (sorry). The story sounds really interesting too, it’s about a girl who’s literal dream boy comes to life.
Did you read any of these books?
