Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

A book lover’s TBR pile never stops growing. There are just so many good books out there with so many more being released every single week and really not enough time to read them all.

BUUUT I really don’t mind! I’d rather have a huge list of books I still want to read than no books at all. With that in mind I give you a list of 10 of the most recent books I’ve added to my TBR list. Only two of these are already released though, so I’ll have to have a bit more patience to get to the rest of them (ugh, patience…)

Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda

I was very late to hop on the Hamilton train, but boy am I so very much on it by now! I’m obsessed and I can’t wait to get my hands on this gorgeous book!

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

This one sounds like so much fun. It’s a historical fantasy in which two boys roadtrip through Europe together and have to fight pirates AND their feelings for eachother along the way.

Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

Metaltown is a steampunk dystopian. I can’t say that I’ve read a lot of steampunk yet, but this book was in the October Fairyloot box and it does sound super good!

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

This book was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and sounds like such a heartwrenching but real and necessary read.

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Honestly, the synopsis had me at pirates. Ok no, the title already had me at Pirate. This sounds like so much fun and I can’t wait!

Gilded Cage by Vic James

This fantasy dystopian set in England just sounds so dark and interesting, it immediately earned its’ spot on my TBR list!

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

This story is a fantasy retelling featuring a Goblin King (whom I’ve already fancasted as Tom Hiddleston) and is described as romantic and sexy. Please, give it to me now!

The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich

This blurb sounds so, so good! This book sounds like a perfectly funny and original take on all these tropes and I am so here for it! I mean, this is about a spy school that trains these teens to become tropes. Their assignment is to get close to a girl and whoever doesn’t get the girl, dies. And then they end up falling for eachother instead? THIS SHIP, I AM ALREADY ON IT!

Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields

poisons-kiss-by-breeana-shields

The idea of a teenage assassin who can kill with a kiss sounds kind of hit or miss, but I am intrigued! Also, it’s based on Indian folklore and already has some pretty good reviews so I’m in!

Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda BellezaΒ

Umm, Adam Silvera described this as Arya Stark in space. I love Adam Silvera and I love Arya Stark so I just HAVE TO give this one a try. Badass revenge in space, bring it on!

are some of these books on your TBR as well? What’s the last book you added to your TBR?

      Ys, the description really had me hooked on Empress of a Thousand Skies too! I hope Metaltown will be a nice book to introduce me to the steampunk genre πŸ™‚ And yes, the cover for Poison’s Kiss is kind of creepy, but I hope the story will be really good!

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      Yes, I think The Hate You Give will be super insightful and confronting but also so important. And I just can’t help it when the synopsis says pirates, it’s a buzzword for me πŸ™‚

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      The Love Interest does sound super hilarious, I love a book that can make a little fun of itself πŸ™‚ Plus Becky Albertalli said she loved it! I just really hope it will live up to my expectations πŸ™‚

    I’m so excited for The Love Interest! Gentleman’s Guide and The Hate U Give are both on my TBR too. I got the Hamiltome last month and I’m so in love with it. I hope you can get a copy soon!! I just added Empress of a Thousand Skies to my TBR, it sounds super interesting!!

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      They all sound so great, I’m just sorry they will not yet be released for a few months… That’s so cool that you’ve got the Hamiltome! I added it to my Christmas wishlist so fingers crossed πŸ˜‰
