Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR


(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I’m constantly adding new books to my TBR, always browsing Goodreads for new titles to add to my never ending wishlist. If it weren’t for some most-anticipated releases, I wouldn’t mind if publishers took a break for a year or two so I can catch up on all the books I want to read. Some of my recently added titles:


In Search of Lost Dragons by  Élian Black’mor and Carine-M
I would have bought this book the second I first saw it if it weren’t so damn expensive. I’ve seen some of the beautiful illustrations on Instagram (LOOK AT IT!) and fell in love. Must-have for sure.

River of Ink by Paul M.M. Cooper
Awesome cover, historical fiction, diverse setting. I definitely want to get a copy of this one.

The Lazarus War:Artifact by Jamie Sawyer
These days I’m adding so many Sci-Fi books set in space to my TBR. I hope to read many of them this year. War against an alien race with the help of avatars? Sign me up!

27 Hours by Tristina Wright
“a group of queer teens living on a colonized moon must stop an attack that would make the war between their cultures a war of extinction” What more do you need to know! MUST HAVE!

Fallen Isles Trilogy #1 by Jodi Meadows
I still haven’t ready any books by Jodi Meadows and I’m not so sure if she writes the kind of books I love BUT “illegal dragon trafficking”!!!!

New Pompeii by Daniel Godfrey
Another book that I had to check out because of its amazing cover and “technology that can transport objects and people from deep in the past to the present day” sounds right up my alley.

The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town by John Grisham
After watching Making a Murderer I googled for some books to read and stumbled upon this non-fiction by Grisham.

Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood
I’ve added this book after I watched a few episodes of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and fell in love with the series. I love these kind of murder mysteries and even though the book series seems to have some differences, I want to give it a go too.

The Bullet-Catcher’s Daughter by Rod Duncan
I came across the third book in this series on Netgalley and was drawn in by the cover. These too seem to be detective stories, this one being from the POV of a woman who lives a double life, as herself and as her brother who is a detective.

The Hypnotist by Laurence Anholt
Another book that made me curious because of its cover is The Hypnotist. I wouldn’t say it’s a must-read for me but it sounded interesting enough for me to add it to my TBR.
