Considering my super long book slump, doing these lists without repeats is starting to get hard. So this week, I’m doing colorful colors on my TBR! Hopefully it’ll help inspire me to pick up some books too! It’s been an eventful month so I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
Books on my TBR so colorful I want to read them RIGHT NOW
Sweethand by N.G. Peltier
I actually added this one to my TBR the day I’m writing this. It was recommended on Instagram by SaidbyJess and sounds absolutely amazing! This promises a fun romance full of consent and diversity and I’m excited to eventually get my hands on it. Also a possible rivalry to lovers situation. I might just pause other reads for this if I’m being honest.
Blood Like Magic by Liselle Sambury
I’ve been seeing Blood Like Magic every where lately. Booktubers and bloggers alike are raving about this upcoming release. I’m looking forward to reading it! I’ve heard it described as genre bending and a unique take on witches. Despite it being young adult, I’m super excited to give this a try when it releases.
Somewhere Between Bitter and Sweet by Laekan Zea Kemp
Even though I chose TBR books so I wouldn’t repeat books, I’m pretty sure I’ve put this on a TTT before. Either way! I’m super excited to read this and every time I talk about it I get more excited. This sounds like another rivals to lovers story and that’s a trope that will have to be pried from my cold dead hands.
The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams
Not quite as full of color as other covers, but I really love the reds and oranges in the flowers against the dark blue. The Dictionary of Lost Words is a historical fiction novel set in early 1900 about a girl who steals an Oxford English Dictionary and becomes enamored with words and collecting words. As a fellow lover of words, I have high hopes.
The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin
I don’t read a lot of novels based on friendships but this one sounds absolutely amazing. Terminally ill teenager befriends an 80 year old who’s staying in the same hospital and attending the same classes. I know it’s going to be sad and hit me in the feels but it seems to promise fun wholesomeness before that and I’m a sucker.
Beasts of a Little Land by Juhea Kim
Honestly, this book is extremely outside my comfort zone and not at all what I typically read. But I was browsing Netgalley and the cover caught my attention. After reading the synopsis, I thought I’d give it a try. It’s set in South Korea during the Japanese occupation. It follows the consequences of a local hunter saving an Japanese soldier. Every synopsis I’ve read has been a bit confusing so I don’t know much more than that. I requested and received it from Netgalley so a review is likely to come!
Yume by Sifton Tracey Anipare
Yume is another Netgalley find. It’s also something I probably wouldn’t have found on my own but I’m excited for it. Yume is a modern fantasy featuring demons and Japanese folklore. I think. I’m definitely more excited about this since fantasy is always up my alley. This cover is absolutely delightful too.
Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds, & Shape Our Futures by Merlin Sheldrake
Entangled Life is another recent TBR add. I’ve been trying to find some easy to read science based nonfiction since that’s definitely a genre I typically ignore. I found a book list of science books for non-science people and added at least 3 books, this being one of them. This cover is so pretty and I’ve always been very curious about mushrooms and other fungi so it sounds like an interesting read.
Love in Color: Mythical Tales from Around the World, Retold by Bolu Babalola
I really love learning about folklore from around the world and I really love reading about love so what better read for me than Love in Color! Also, please just look at this cover! It’s absolutely gorgeous. This might be one of the few books I buy before I’ve read it because my shelves are itching to display this beauty.
Pride and Premeditation by Tirzah Price
I’m a bit apprehensive about this one if I’m being honest. I’m not a huge fan of mystery novels. I’m not a huge fan of young adult novels. This one is both. But! I am a huge fan of Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice retellings so despite it being mostly things I dislike, I HAVE to at least give it a try. Also look at this cover! It’s so bright and colorful. It caught my eye immediately even before I knew anything about it.
Woo! Another list down. Have you read any of these? What are you’re thoughts? Feel free to post the link to your Top 10 Tuesday post.
