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.
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.
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, £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!
