Top Ten Tuesday (40) : Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added to my TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is a Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added to my TBR. Okay, confession-time:  lately, my TBR is SUFFERING because I keep adding SO many books. I just can’t stop. I kind of blame book bloggers for that. But I kind of LOVE you for it, too. SO many books, that’s just the best feeling, isn’t it?! Don’t forget to click on the title of the books to read their fabulous synopsis!

1 • When we Collided, Emery Lord

I found out about this book a few days ago, and I have to admit, it seems kind of heartbreaking, sweet, and with a sort of All The Bright Places vibe. Plus, the cover is really beautiful.

2 • The Darkest Part of The Forest, Holly Black 

What, is this fantasy?! Yes my friends, I’m putting quite a lot of fantasy books on my TBR lately, and I am IMPATIENT to start. This one sounds weird, mysterious, and that cover looks great, I’m definitely getting it soon.


3 •  Forget Tomorrow, Pintip Dunn

I didn’t read dystopia in a while, and to be honest, I kind of miss it. I’ve seen this book around a lot, and the synopsis seems very different and intriguing…I hope it’ll be good!.

4 • Scandal, Sarah Ockler

My love for contemporary is infinite, and this book seems really entertaining, in a kind of Mean Girls vibe or something…I don’t know, I just feel like I’m going to like it!.

5 • The Raven Boys, Maggie Stievfater 

YES. Everyone’s been talking about this series, telling how AMAZING it is, and I have to figure this out myself! The story seems promising, so I hope, when the time comes, I won’t be disappointed.

6 • Gambit, C. L. Denault

Another dystopia, with a great cover, and some great reviews already! An interesting world, and characters …I have to read that one soon.

7 • Made You Up, Francesca Zappia

I’ll admit it, the hype made me add this book to my TBR. I saw the cover around before, and, after reading a bunch of reviews and hearing about how great this story is, well…I just want to try and read it myself, to see if it’s that good.

8 • Cinder, Marissa Meyer

I know, I am SO late on that hyped train… I haven’t read the Lunar Chronicles at all, yet. But I know lots of people who did, so that counts, right?! I like the genre, and this book seems quite good…I hope I’ll like it as much as everyone else seems to!.


9 • The Fill-In Boyfriend, Kasie West

You know me, if we’re talking about a cute romance, well I’m here!! And I definitely want to read it. Some of you guys blogged about this one lately, and I’m impatient to finally read some Kasie West. Apparently, she’s good at what she does… so I should love it !.

10 • You Know Me Well, David Levithan & Nina LaCour

Except Will Grayson, Will Grayson, I didn’t read anything from Levithan yet. The same goes for Nina LaCour. But this book really appeals to me, it feels like one of these great contemporary stories that stays with you. I want to read it.

Which one should I buy RIGHT NOW this second, and read?! 💬

What are some books that you recently added to your TBR?! Let me know in comments!  💬

  1. You are not alone Marie, I haven’t read The Lunar Chronicles either. I have heard so much about it and I’m so excited to read it! Soon, I hope…
    Great list, I’ll be adding some of them to my TBR. 🙂

  2. YAY! We have 2 books in common (Raven Boys and You Know Me Well). I want to read a couple of the others as well though. Cinder and the Lunar Chronicles are definitely on my TBR for this year. This day is terrible … may TBR is just growing a mile high.

  3. I can’t wait to read Emery Lord’s new book. I love her writing. I enjoyed #scandal. I also am so intrigued by Made You Up. I bought myself a copy recently.

  4. Great List! Forget tomorrow is also in my TBR and I hope to read it soon. The Darkest Part of the forest is a nice read but I didn’t enjoyed much due to its slow pacing. The Raven Boys was disappointment for me but I hope you like it. The Fill In Boyfriends is totally entertaining and fun to read. It was really sweet and adorable! I think you’ll definitely like it. 😀

  5. You have a great list put together here! The Lunar Chronicles are some of my favorite books in the world, so I would definitely recommend that you get to those if you can!I also really enjoyed the fill-in boyfriend, and I love Sarah Ockler, so I’m sure Scandal will be good!
    here’s my TTT!

I hope when you get to it you love it as well!!!

    1. Haha, this comment showed three times indeed, but it makes me feel SO loved, so thank you, haha :p
      Ohh, well that’s so great, I hope you’ll love those two books. They seem like kind of, different, dystopias, and I hope they won’t be disappointing. Ohh, I will definitely read those books soon, now that I have your approval :p Thank you! ❤

  10. I only just learned of When We Collided and it sounds like it’s going to be a brilliant contemporary. And yay for The Darkest Part of the Forest. I really want to read some Holly Black this year since it’s been at least 5+ years since I’ve read her writing. And I read Cinder when it first came out and didn’t like it that much; hopefully you’ll enjoy it more than I did! Awesome list, Marie! ^.^ Happy Tuesday (or Wednesday, now)!

    1. Aww, well, I’m happy to hear that some people aren’t head over heels for the Lunar Chronicles series, I was starting to wonder if those books cast a spell on people or something ahha! 🙂 We NEED to read some Holly Black together then this year! 😀
      Thank you so much Summer, Happy Wednesday!! 😀


  11. KASIE WEST YES! I will buy anything she writes, it’s always adorable. I’ve also read Cinder, #scandal and The Raven Boys. Cinder is amazing but #scandal and The Raven Boys for me was just meh. After all the hype around The Raven Boys, I was pretty disappointed. Anyways, hope you enjoy reading these books 😀

    1. Ohhh, I’m so happy to hear that, I’m all in for adorable, it’s my favorite kind of books (not ashamed, haha). I understand, it’s actually what I’m scared of, too, when I’ll finally read The Raven Boys. I hope I will enjoy it, though! 🙂
      Thank you so much for stopping by! ❤

    1. Wow!!! It makes me SO happy and kind of eager to read that series, seeing ALL of your enthousiasm about it! I’ll keep that in mind, the favorite food and the golden ticket 😉
      Made You Up already LOOKS gorgeous, right? I hope the inside is as pretty as the outside! 🙂

      1. I certainly hope it meets your expectations because then we would FANGIRL TOGETHER!! 😀
        I KNOW IT LOOKS SO PRETTY ❤.❤ I agree with you, I cross my fingers and pray to lord that it is amazing outside as it is inside!
        Hmm, I am a mood reader…I think I read the novel at the wrong time. I was after a fluffy contemporary read, not a dark fantasy novel. But I’m happy to give it another go! 😀

      3. Whoa that sucks :/ Our libraries in the state are largely connected hence I just request the novel and it will transfer to my library 😀
        YES 😀 We totally should, and I really want someone to buddy read with me on the last book of Lunar Chronicles so maybe if you fell in love with the first novel then I can resist my temptation for now and read Winter with you! ❤

  13. YES YES YES to all of the books on your list! I highly recommend The Lunar Chronicles and The Raven Boys! Those characters are amazing!! I also really enjoyed #scandal but it’s not my favourite Sarah Ockler novel. I much preferred The Summer of Chasing Mermaids.

    1. Those two books are HIGH on my TBR, I’m excited to read them, knowing that so many people love them! Oh, well I’m glad to hear that, because I ordered The Summer of Chasing Mermaids first, the other day! I can’t wait to start reading it! I’ll Give You The Sun was incredible, and you recommended it to me a LOT. So I know I can trust your taste in books 😉
