Top Ten Tuesday | Books Recently Added To Your To-Be-Read List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly original meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is simple and straight forward. Let's get started.

1. In Real Life by Cory Doctorow


I picked this up at my local Barnes&Noble the other day after hearing non-stop buzz about it from legitimately everyone. EVERYONE.

2. 5 to 1 by Holly Bodger


Honestly, I had never heard about this book until I checked out a recent video from Hails Hearts Nyc and it sounds super intriguing; at the same time, certain descriptions from fellow bibliophiles have made it seem like the book version of the Disney movie Brave. I don't know if that's accurate though so I'm still giving it a shot!

3. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


Okay, real talk: you're lying to yourself if you claim this wasn't partially a cover buy. It was for me but I had also heard many varying opinions from friends and booktubers. Some good, some bad, but hey, I'm still willing to read it and form my own opinions about it.

4. The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld


I saw an advertisement for this last year at Powell's Bookstore in Portland and let me just say, I thought this cover was absolutely beautiful. It sparked my interest so I immediately went online and read the overview for it and well, I still haven't managed to find a copy at any bookstores near me. No worries, I shall try to get a copy soon!

5. Night Film by Marisha Pessl


Surprisingly, I haven't heard that many people talk about this book but it's also not in my "priority" genre. Plus my bookstore only carries the ugly cover version and I am quite the cover snob, I'll give you that.

6. The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski


I know this has been out for quite some time now but I didn't originally want to read it. Then, as the second book came out not too long ago, I decided that I need to pick both of them up in the near future.

7. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick


Another one that I recently added, but it was released a few years back. I watched the movie version of Silver Linings Playbook which is written by the same author and I didn't like the movie at all. In my mind it put a damper on the possibility of reading the book version so I think I'm going to try this instead.

8. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North


Not my typical read but Regan from PeruseProject has really good taste in books and I usually love her recommendations. 

9. S. by J.J. Abrams


The premise of this book is flat out awesome. I haven't even read it and I'm already impressed.

10. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes


Here we are, yet again, with another book that was just added to my list of books to read when it was released over two years ago. Still, I am stoked to read this next after I finish my current read.

Those are my top ten choices for this weeks meme and I apologize if this post is incoherent at parts. I wrote this half asleep because syllabus week is kicking my booty.
