Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  
This week I'm going to tell you my
Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR

Wow, I've written my last Top Ten Tuesday post on June 16th, 2015. It's been a long time to neglect a meme I love so much but this week's topic stole my heart the moment I read it. 2015 was the year of reading books I already owned. I didn't buy as many books as I did the years before and I returned from London - my mekka for buying books without proper thinking before running to the register -  with only 3 books. That never happened before. 

So I want to try to limit my book buying even more in 2016 or to put it more correctly: I want to read more books I already own. I bought them with the intention of reading them, I bought them because they sounded interesting and like my cup of tea, I bought them, put them on my shelf and didn't give them a chance. In 2016 they will get their chance.

These are my Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR ("oldies" but goldies style):

V.E. Schwab - A Darker Shade of Magic 
(by the time this list goes up, I've already finished it the day before - go me!)
C.J. Daugherty - Legacy

Leigh Bardugo - Shadow and Bone
Samantha Shannon - The Bone Season
Gail Carriger - Manners & Mutiny 
(the last book in a series and it's hard for me to say goodbye to the characters. Sophronia is just kick-ass.)
Janet Evanovich - Takedown Twenty
Terry Pratchett - I Shall Wear Midnight
Mike Gayle - Seeing Other People
Let's see how many of these I actually read during this year and if I can stick to my resolution of reading more books from my TBR pile. 


  1. The Little Flower Shop by the Sea is on my TBR as well and I really want to give Gail Carriger a try this year. I love the cover for Night School Legacy. Hope you get to these soon!

  2. Shadow and Bone is fantastic. It took me 2 or 3 tries to get into it but once I did the worldbuilding was so cool! And the villain was great. I hope you like it.

  3. ooo I didn't know about The Little Flower Shop By The Sea - yay! My TTT
