10 books we recently added to our (endless) TBR

Hi friends, happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fantastic week. I have been a little overwhelmed (in a very good way) with new projects on the blog, (DID YOU SEE MY NEW HEADER AND BLOG BUTTON? Sorry. I’m excited. Made by the ever fabulously talented Kat @ Novels and Waffles. Check out her blog, she is one of my latest favorite bloggers and deserve all the love.)

ANYWAY. Today, I thought I’d come up with A LIST. Nothing’s as fun as making lists, right? (Or is it just me? Maybe it’s just me).

It’s funny, because earlier this week I mentioned my recent struggles with reading schedules and organization overall, yet I just can’t seem to continue adding books to my TBR, making it endless, adding stress and excitment and just making me scream I NEED ALL THE BOOKS about 32019 times every single day. Being a book blogger is fun, friends. (It is though, really)

SO TODAY I’m going to talk about some books I recently came around that I had to add to my already massive, but thankfully only virtual (for now) TBR, in the hopes that this will make you want to scream at me to read them, or that you will want to add them to your TBRs, too.

Oh. I also invited my sister and occasional co-blogger here Nyx to mention her latest additions to her TBR, too. We’re massive bookworms and we have no regrets okay.

You can click on the covers to go to goodreads, if you want to make your TBR grow.

πŸ“š Marie’s picks

The Rose Society, Marie Lu

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”Ž It’s funny, because I read a first book in a series and add the sequels to my TBR about 23918 years later, I’m not sure why. I read the first book in this series, The Young Elites, a little while ago now and I surprisingly REALLY enjoyed it. I need to continue with it, but… I’m terrible at keeping up with series. SOMEDAY I WILL READ IT SOMEONE SCREAM AT ME TO.

A Match Made In Mehendi, Nandini Bajpai

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”ŽI recently found out about this book when the cover was revealed, over on twitter. This sounds like such a fun, adorable read with our main protagonist starting a match-making service app and making her entire high school completely messy and upside down and that sounds like my kind of thing.

Timekeeper, Tara Sim

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”Ž I know Laura really loves this one and, given our very similar bookish taste, I trust her 200%. Also, even if I’m not usually reading a whole lot of science-fiction and even less steampunk, somehow I’m very intrigued by this one. Has any of you read it?


Saving June, Hannah Harrington

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”Ž I remember the lovely Lily really loves this book and I know that’s why I added it to my TBR originally. This book sounds beautiful and heartbreaking and it has a road trip and seems overall just so good, so it is basically everything I love. I can’t wait to read it!

The Starless Sea, Erin Morgenstern

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”Ž I recently read The Night Circus, after years of waiting and years of seeing everyone hyping it up and…I really enjoyed it a lot. I am so curious to read more from the author and, let’s face it, The Starless Sea sounds as amazing as its title, a secret underground world and books and what? I need this?!


πŸ“š Nyx’s picks

Little White Lies, Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Why I want to read it πŸ”ŽΒ Set in the world of high society, this book is telling the story of Sawyer who’s going to participate in debutante season and uncovers her father’s identity. Secrets, scandals and I bet a lot of drama, this book is screaming at me “Read me, read me now!”.

A Reaper at the Gates, Sabaa Tahir

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I’ve recently read the second book of this series and damn I need to know what happens next! I’m not going to spoil anything but I totally fell in love with Sabaa’s writing, characters and storytelling and I bet this one will be as good as the previous ones, maybe even better…

Field Notes on Love, Jennifer E. Smith

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž Fan of Jennifer E. Smith, I’m really eager for her next novel. The story seems fun, heartfelt and perfect for a marshmallow like me. It’s about two teens leaving their hometowns to see the world. The travel vibe is really calling out to me!Β 

Vox, Christina Dalcher

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž Dystopia, feminism, thought-provoking…that’s the words I heard about this book and I’m really curious to give it a try. It’s about a woman trying to protect herself and her daughter in a world where women are no longer allowed to speak. Creepy right?!

Just for Clicks, Kara McDowell

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž A book about sisters and social media, give it to me now! It’s the story of two sisters becoming accidental social media stars because of their mom going viral. It totally seems like my kind of read, fun and full of heart but also tackling some really important issues.Β 

(Marie here just read this book and KNOWS that Nyx is going to love it. Also you, fans of contemporaries with social media and blogging and just slow-burning romances ahhh)


Did you read any of these books? Any book you’d recommend us to read?

  1. The Starless Sea sounds AMAZING! I’ve now just added that to my TBR thanks to this post. As well as Timekeeper and Saving June, which sounds so heartbreaking and that makes it one I just have to read.
    I’ve recently added The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman and These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling to my TBR. They both sound like just the kind of story that I’d be able to devour quickly!
    Great post!

    1. Ahh I’m so glad to hear that! I hope we’ll both love The Starless Sea, it sounds incredible, I agree πŸ˜€
      I heard a lot about These Witches Don’t Burn, I might have to add it to my TBR, too, it sounds really good! πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much for your comment, Kelly! ❀


  2. A Match Made in Mehendi sounds so cool! Definitely the kind of YA contemporary I’m into. I’ve realized that I’m getting really into Indian YA novels written by Indian authors, and I’m so here for all of them eheh! Also, super cute cover. Your blog button and header look amazing! Kat is one of my favorite bloggers and illustrators and I’m very happy to see her expand her portfolio πŸ’–

  3. Don’t worry, Marie! You’re not the only one terrible at keeping up with series. To be honest, I have also yet to read The Rose Society after finishing the first book in… 2016. Why is it so darn hard to commit to a series even though you like them?? On the other hand, I’m so happy to see Timekeeper on your list! I had a fantastic time reading that book. I love that it has steampunk elements but is also alternate historical fiction. Heart eyes all around! ❀

    I have yet to read books on Nyx's list, but I am eagerly anticipating Field Notes on Love. I am contemporary trash who loves traveling and a sucker for that cover. *makes grabby hands*

    1. Oh I’m glad I’m not the only one πŸ˜‚ I feel terrible, because I start series such a long time ago, then completely forget about their sequels for, like, years πŸ˜‚ I hope we’ll manage to get to The Rose Society soon, I’m so curious about that one πŸ™‚

      Ahh you’ve read Timekeeper? That’s SO great I’m so happy to hear you liked it. I need to read it even sooner now πŸ˜€

      CONTEMPORARY TRASH here too and… well, Nyx actually made me discover that book and I can’t WAIT to read it either!
      Thank you so, so much Bianca ❀

    1. Oh well I guess that if you’re not that into antiheroines while reading the young elites series, that could ruin it all for you πŸ˜‚ I’m sorry you didn’t love it though :/
      I KNOW RIGHT? A match made in mehendi sounds adorable, I can’t wait! πŸ˜€

  4. You’ve both got some incredible books that you’ve recently added to you TBR lists, and I hope you really enjoy all these. I’m so beyond excited for The Starless Sea, I feel like I’ve waited years for another release from Erin Morgenstern and I know it’s going to be worth the wait but why is it still so far away?! Also I have A Reaper at the Gates on my TBR list for this year, I need to know what happens after the way the second book ended too (honestly I’m a little surprised I haven’t already read it).
    Great post, and again I hope you both enjoy all these books when you get around to them. πŸ™‚ ❀

  5. Ohh this is such a great post!! 😍 Marie, this is such a coincidence haha – I literally JUST finished The Midnight Society (the last book of The Young Elites trilogy) last night. This is like the first (fantasy) series I’ve finished since forever ago (and yes, I know it’s only three books long haha). But anyway, I’M GOING TO YELL AT YOU TO READ THE ROSE SOCIETY AND THE MIDNIGHT SOCIETY because this series is honestly so good!! Action-packed, intriguing, thought-provoking, and very emotional at times. (Also, The Rose Society was surprisingly darker than I expected.) I’m so excited for you to continue reading this series 😊

    I added A Match Made In Mehendi and Just for Clicks to my TBR; they both sound incredible. So many great books coming out this year 😍😭

      Thank you so, so much Dezzy! ❀ ❀

  6. I can’t say any of these are on my TBR list, but I have added a few to my own. I feel like there are so many 2019 releases I didn’t know about that suddenly pop out periodically. One that I added to my TBR list is The Cold is in Her Bones. It sounds amazing!

    1. I feel you, I can’t stop adding books to my never-ending TBR! I think 2019 is going to be amazing 😁 Haven’t heard about that one, I’ll need to check it out 😊 Thanks for stopping by 😘😘


  7. I have Timekeeper on my shelf, but I haven’t read it yet! Steampunk is something that can be extremely cool if done right, but gimmicky if done wrong. I’m hoping this one will be the former!

  9. I really want to read Timekeeper too, it sounds soo good! And definitely A Reaper at the Gates, but I’m gonna try and save it for when the fourth book comes out so I can binge-read and not stress over waiting too long πŸ™‚

    Reaper at the Gates is one of the top books I want to get to read this year. I still haven’t read A Torch Against the Night. I’m holding off for a bit until the next book comes out so that I don’t have to suffer for too long XD

  12. I’m still waiting for Little White Lies to come in at the library (it is, no surprise, in demand, so it’ll probably be another two months before I get my turn with it), it sounds intriguing! I’ve been hit-and-miss with Jennifer Lynn Barnes’s writing in the past, but I’m hoping this one lives up to it’s synopsis for me.

The Rose Society have been on my TBR for a while, I loved The Young Elites but just haven’t gotten around to reading the sequel yet. I hadn’t heard of “A Match Made in Mehendi” before! I love the cover! I’m adding that to my list now.

  16. The cover for Little White Lies is gorgeous! Also, A Reaper at the Gates is also on my list of books to try to read soon. :/ I’m hoping that since my second-semester classes are a bit easier it will give me time to continue to read more than usual. πŸ™‚

  17. I love this post and I love bookish lists and I am in love with your new blog header – it’s really beautiful ❀️❀️

    I’m the absolute worst when it comes to keeping up with series. I’m planning on first reading the Warcross series by Marie Lu before moving on to her Young Elites series. I’m happy you enjoyed the first book and now you SHOULD TOTALLY read book two (don’t know if that counts as yelling)!

    A Match Made in Mehendi sounds really cute and I’m definitely adding it to my TBR. The book I got approved for on Netgalley is Just For Clicks and now I’m SO happy to see you’ve enjoyed it – I’m looking forward to reading it soon ❀️

  19. LOVE the new header so much Marie! It just fits so well.

    I also added The Starless Sea to my TBR. I am dying for it actually. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the publication does not get pushed back. It has been far too long since The Night Circus.

    Nyx – I LOVE the An Ember in the Ashes series! The 3rd book is just as action packed as the other 2. There are definitely more fantasy elements in the 3rd book, and you get to see more of the Nightbringer!!!
