January 29: The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List
For this weeks list I’m turning to my goodreads account to look at the ten most recent additions to my ever-expanding To Read shelf. I’d like to think I’ll read all of these in the near future, but I know myself better than that.
1. Tunnel of Bones – by Victoria Schwab
I really enjoyed City of Ghosts, it was such a quick, atmospheric read, so I was thrilled to hear that there would be a sequel. I can’t wait to read it. The US cover was revealed recently, which was when I added the book to my TBR shelf.
2. Wicked Saints – by Emily A. Duncan
I’ve been seeing a fair bit of buzz building around this book recently and my curiosity is piqued. It just sounds so dark and twisty, and really, I’m all about embracing my love of fantasy books lately.
3. All the Lonely People – by David Owen
This is the first book on this list that I actually own a copy of. I was really intrigued by the synopsis, it sounds like an interesting look at how online behaviour/trolling can have a real world impact.
4. Darkdawn – by Jay Kristoff
The UK cover reveal prompted me to finally add this book to my TBR shelf. I’ve only read Nevernight so far, and am actually currently rereading it in preparation for finally reading Godsgrave. I’m planning to pre-order this, and hope that I’ll be able to read it pretty much as soon as it arrives at my door.
5. The Beautiful – by Renée Ahdieh
This book was only just announced, but already it has my attention. I loved The Wrath and the Dawn, Renée Ahdieh’s writing is rich and engaging, so naturally I’m interested in anything she writes. This book sounds wonderfully dark, and it’s been such a long time since I read a book about vampires.
6. Give the Dark My Love – by Beth Revis
I haven’t seen much discussion around this book, but I am really interested in the synopsis. Alchemy is underused in YA fantasy, and I’m intrigued by the use of it in this book. The main character in this book seems more than a little dark and twisty, and I am so ready for it.
7. The Gilded Wolves – by Roshani Chokshi
This book came out of nowhere to swiftly become one of my most anticipated 2019 releases. Seriously, I have no clue why it took me so long to hear about this book, but now that I have, I’m very excited. I love a good ensemble cast, and this book is giving me some wicked Six of Crows vibes. Add the fact that I adore Roshani Chokshi’s writing style, and it’s clear that this is a book I need in my life!
8. A Girl Called Shameless – by Laura Steven
I adored The Exact Opposite of Okay, and was thrilled to learn that there would be a second book following my favourite funny feminist heroine, Izzy O’Neill. I need more books that make me laugh in my life, and I have very high hopes for this one.
9. Moonstruck: Volume 2
I read the first volume over Christmas and really enjoyed it. It’s super cute and soft, is filled with magic, and has a wonderfully diverse cast of characters. Its everything I might think to ask for in a graphic novel series, and I’m definitely looking forward to continuing on with these characters.
10. The Lost Coast – by Amy Rose Cappetta
This is a book about a group of queer witches, and honestly that was all I needed to hear, to sell me on this book. This sounds like a really atmospheric book that I can really get lost in, I have high hopes for this.
