November 8: Top Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately
I love writing (and reading) TBR posts, and I’ve added a huge number of books to my to-be-read list in the past few months (many times more than I’ll be able to read – oh, the struggles) that I’m super excited to dive into.
1. If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
As one of the new Zoella book club picks (along with the following four novels on this TBR), I have to get in on the action. This is a YA contemporary featuring a transgender protagonist: yay for more LGBTQ! fiction.
2. Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell
This novel sounds perfectly scary: it’s ouija boards, creepy dolls, the Scottish Highlands and mystery.
3. The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
I read and enjoyed Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares last year, so I’m obviously going to devour and love the sequel.
4. Lying About Last Summer by Sue Wallman
This novel sounds really interesting, with the premise reminding me of We Were Liars by E. Lockhart: a camp for troubled teenagers, an accidental death and mysterious text messages.
5. The One We Fell In Love With by Paige Toon
Starring triplet sisters, all of whom fell in love with the same guy (that can’t end well!), this contemporary romance sounds perfect for cosy nights in front of the fire this winter.
6. The Call by Peadar Ó Guilín
This was the booksplosion book of the month not long ago, and it was also the featured novel in one of the many YA book subscription boxes. Reviews state it to be super creepy and intense, which sounds like the perfect winter read.
7. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Whilst I’m not interested in The Grisha Trilogy one bit, there’s something about this duology that caught my attention.
8. The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
I hadn’t planned on reading this one until a friend and a prolific author championed it, so onto the TBR it goes.
9. Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
Though I’ve yet to read All The Bright Places, I know I’m going to love both of these YA novels.
10. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
There’s magic and a school, and that’s all I need to know. I’m sold.
