10 Books I’ve just Added to my TBR

I’m sitting on a train currently freezing as I type this. The January snow has definitely arrived. What’s more I have a crazy busy week of after work dinners, training, friends, and a random trip to Bristol coming up this week- can you tell the first pay day since we all went broke on Christmas has just occurred?

But there’s one more thing January is: the month of tbr growth. Bloggers make lists of upcoming releases or the best books of 2018, readathons are planned and, finally, I look at my the pile of books I meant to read last year and weep. Basically my tbr is currently toppling over. But I’ve easily got a new ten novels just added to it.

Just a TBR note: I don’t have a physical one really, not when the library want each book returned within three weeks. I just go in there and request books so that’s what I consider to be a tbr really.

1. Enchantee

Coming out soon, I am so buzzed for this Parisian setting, fantasy novel. And I have heard nothing but great things of the proofs so far (also did anyone see those covers posted on Twitter yesterday?!) 😍

2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I was reading a glowing review of this yesterday and that has really spurred me into action. This book sounds amazing and doesn’t deserve the layer of dust it has no doubt accumulated sitting on my shelf since YALC.

3. The Cruel Prince

The hype for it’s sequel is currently doing the rounds on Twitter and I’ve been assured it’s not too romance heavy so it may be sneaking its way to the top of my very lengthy tbr.

4. Six of Crows

Because King of Scars is coming out and I don’t like feeling left out.

5. Finale

Can I add a book that isn’t yet out to my tbr? Who knows. But having just finished Legendary we can safely assume this book will be consumed immediately when it is released.

6. A Conjuring of Light

You know how you sort of have tiers in a tbr? Where the inner tier are books you’ll read this month and the outer ones are ‘eh I’ll get to it soon’ sort of thing? Just me? Oh well. Suffice to say after the glorious read that was A Gathering of Shadows this novel has progressed to a new ‘must read now’ tier.

7. We Hunt the Flames

I’ve seen this lad on Twitter quite a bit lately and am still in two minds of whether I’ll read it (because you can’t always trust hype). It’s teetering on the edge of my tbr for this year.

8. The Surface Breaks

My friend has offered to lend me a copy if she likes it so I am even more excited to get this Little Mermaid retelling into my hands.

9. The Infernal Devices

One of my friends is desperate to fangirl (guy? He’s a guy but I feel ‘fangirl’ is just a general term?) with me on this series and I have promised to pick up a Cassandra Clare again. Hopefully it’ll be good, I last read them when I was quite young…

10. On the Come Up

Another book that hasn’t yet been released! I’m not doing great here. Anyway having just seen the proofs on Twitter and with the excitement of her UK tour announcement (which I’m still not sure if I’ll attend, Β£15 is a lot when you don’t get the book!), I’m very excited for this novel! The Hate U Give was brilliant!!

Let’s Compare Notes

So there you have it! My recent tbr additions. What are you have just added to your tbr? Do you have a physical collection? Would love to hear from you in the comments!

  1. Great list! I fell in love with Six of Crows last year, so I hope you enjoy it. I haven’t read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I keep wondering if I should because I’ve heard such good things about it. Happy reading!


  2. Love your list! And OMG yep, I can’t wait for the Finale to come out anymore! 😭

    Is it weird that I based my TBR on my Goodreads shelf? Whether I have a copy or not, it’s part of the pile. πŸ’€

  3. Ah I am so excited for you to read Enchantee (I’ll lend it to you if you want, I’ve preordered it). Also I need you to read A Conjuring of Light because I have many, many feelings that I have not been able to talk to anyone about! Daughter of Smoke and Bone is great, as is Six of Crows. And yes, you can definitely add a book that is not yet out to your TBR, that’s half my TBR (so excited for Finale)!


    1. But didn’t you get it on Netgalley… Also yes please! I also need to read A Conjuring of Light after that ending 😱 I didn’t know you’d read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, is it a historical fiction? I thought it might be from what another blogger said and am hoping to add it to my goal haha ah I need to read Six of crows everybody is talking about it 😝 glad it’s not just me!


      1. I did-but I preordered a copy of my own as well, since I loved it so much and the cover is gorgeous! Nope, Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a fantasy. Ha ha definitely not.
