10 books recently added to my TBR (and now it hates me)

Hi friends, happy Wednesday! I’ve been a little uninspired lately when it comes to finding topics to chat about, so I thought that, instead, I’d come back with a small list of books.

We all love book lists, don’t we? As bloggers, we also love adding books almost compulsively to our TBRs, regretting everything afterwards, like I kind of am right this very second. Oops.

I will admit it, lately, as I looked at my to-read list on goodreads: I’ve been adding a whole lot of new releases and books that haven’t been released, don’t even have a cover just yet. I guess it’s a side-effect of book blogging and seeing book deals being announced and already being excited about them all. There are just too many books okay. I tried to do a little mix of new, unreleases and older releases, though.

So here goes! You can click on the covers to go to goodreads, if you want to make your TBR grow!

πŸ“š Books I recently added to the endless TBR

Outrun the Moon, Stacey Lee

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”Ž I recently added everything Stacey Lee wrote, writes and will write on my TBR, because… well, I have a feeling I could really love everything she writes and some bloggers I trust have loved her work SO much. Outrun the Moon is one of the latest additions, and even if I’m not too into historical fiction, usually, this one sounds really good?!

Only A Breath Apart, Katy McGarry

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”ŽI haven’t read anything by this author, despite being well-known for all of her contemporary books,Β  I think it’s about time that I do. This one sounds particularily good and heartbreaking all at once and I’m excited to read it!

The Weight of Our Sky, Hanna Alkaf

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”Ž I have heard SO many great things about this book and, despite being a little bit outside of my comfort zone (historical fiction), I’m definitely interested in reading about this part of Malaysia’s history and all of my bloggers’ friends adored this, so… I can’t wait.


As We Go Forth, Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegmund-Broka

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”ŽYou all know by now my love for Always, Never Yours and these two writers… I screamed and added their latest release to my TBR as soon as I heard about it. This only releases in 2020, but already I AM SO HYPED, because it’s a contemporary romance about high school seniors and the future and SO HERE FOR IT OKAY.

Echo North, Joanna Ruth Meyer

Why I added it to my TBR πŸ”Ž I added this book to my TBR because my friend Kat recommended it and I trust her 300%. This sounds like such a magical, atmospheric read and I can’t help but be curious about it. I hope it won’t disappoint!


A Little Something Different, Sandy Hall

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž This sounds like an adorable book overall, reading about a romance from other people’s perspective and I don’t know, it speaks somehow to my contemporary-marshmallow heart okay.

If You Come Softly, Jacqueline Woodson

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž This book was recommended to me by the lovely Laura and… well, it sounds like a beautiful, heartbreaking love story and it will break my heart into a thousand, million pieces and why am I always here for these kind of books?!!

Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune, Roselle Lim

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž This book has made some noise over on twitter and this sounds like such an adorable contemporary book, promises to be filled with food and unexpected friendships and this sounds really, really,really good.

The Places I’ve Cried In Public, Holly Bourne

Why I want to read it πŸ”ŽI’m making it my bookish mission to read everything Holly Bourne writes, even if it will take me some time, because endless TBR problems and all. Holly Bourne’s upcoming book sounds just as amazing as her previous ones… even if we don’t know much, somehow, I’m 200% here for it already.

All The Lonely People, David Owen

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I’m all for a good book talking about social media, online culture and more and All The Lonely People sounds FASCINATING, talking about who you are online, offline and the two of them connecting.

      Thank you so much, Grace! πŸ˜€


  1. This looks like such a great TBR, Marie!! I hope you love the Weight of Our Sky, it’s so good ahh! Since I’m Malaysian it meant a whole lot seeing unapologetic Malaysian rep on page 😊 And I CANNOT wait for As We Go Forth, like I want to SCREAM because it sounds so good and I need it now sksksksk. Anyways, happy reading, love! ❀

    1. Ahhh thank you! I can’t wait to read it partly because of you, I’m so excited about it πŸ™‚ a little nervous, too, since it’s a bit out of my comfort zone, but still!
      AND YES AHHH I NEED THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW, it sounds amazing. I’m so here for everything they write haha ❀
      Thank you so much! ❀ ❀

    1. Ohh, well maybe some reviews or/and thoughts from fellow bloggers and friends might help you decide? I wish I could help you more with it, really, when I end up adding a book to the TBR, it’s because I get this gut feeling that I want to read it haha πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much for your comment ❀

  2. I haven’t read any of these Marie but I am tempted to try some book by Holly Bourne too! I would recommend one that I haven’t read yet but is already on my shelves : Rayne and Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner.

    1. Ohhh you should! I only read two Holly Bourne books so far (Am I Normal Yet and It only happens in the movies) and I loved both SO much πŸ™‚
      Ahh, I can’t wait to read that one either πŸ˜€
      Happy reading, Sophie! ❀


  3. I want to get to Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune too, I love stories in which food/cooking have an important role.
    And I don’t care much for realistic historical fiction either but Outrun the Moon was so good! I read it in 2016 and I still remember everything about it vividly, especially the main character (I loved her so much.) I hope you end up liking it too!

    1. I love these kind of stories, too, give me ALL the food haha. I hope it will be as amazing as it seems πŸ˜€
      Oh wow it’s amazing that you remember so much about it, despite having read it so long ago, I admire that so much. I can’t wait to read it now πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much for your sweet comment! ❀

  4. Natalie Tan is a must read for me. I love romance. I love food. That cover is fabulous, and the author won me as a fan with her amazing crafts. Only a Breath was so good. I love McGarry and this was classic Katie, but at the same time, a little different. Sandy Hall is hilarious. I love her brand of funny.

    1. Ahhh agree, I really can’t wait to read Natalie Tan, it sounds amazing πŸ™‚
      I’m so glad you liked both Only a Breath and Sandy Hall’s books, I can’t wait to read both πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much for your comment! ❀

  5. How is this the first I’ve heard of As We Go Forth?? I’m so excited! And I’ve been seeing Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune everywhere recently! (Which is great because that cover is BEAUTIFUL!) One of the most recent books I added to my TBR recently is The Silence Between Us by Alice Gervais. It sounds really awesome and I don’t want to have to wait until August to read it. 😭

    1. AHHH I’m so happy I could put it on your radar, I CAN’T WAIT TO READ IT, I love these authors SO much and this one sounds so good!
      Well thank you, I just added this book to my goodreads TBR, I hadn’t heard of it before but it sounds SO great ahhh!! πŸ˜€

  6. A crushing TBR is pretty much a constant as a reader haha— I am low key stressed about it!! But I love that there are so many books waiting for me. I really want to read the weight in our sky as I have heard so many good things about it and I expect it to be emotional *gets tissues* but I love it when a book can give you all the feels. Plus the cover is beautiful!!
    And I am glad you want to read Holly Bourne’s new book— I will be excited to see what you think if you get to read it!!
    Lovely post ❀

    1. Oh same, it’s a mix between stressed out and happy to have so many books to choose from hahaha πŸ™‚
      I’m so excited about the weight in our sky, but it sounds like a heavy read, need to be ready for it I guess πŸ™‚
      thank you so, so much!! πŸ™‚

  7. I’m going to go right ahead and say my TBR doesn’t thank you for this πŸ˜‚ But omg I hadn’t heard of all of these and want!! Also the cover for If You Come Softly is utterly gorgeous?! Covers never used to be this pretty and I used to save a lot of money lmao. πŸ˜‚

    1. I’m sorry πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚
      I know right? I am so in love with that book cover – there are so many stunning covers lately, it makes NOT buying books even harder πŸ˜‚
      Thank you, Cait! ❀


  8. I haven’t read any of these but I have If You Come Softly out from the library. It’s shorter than I expected. I also added Echo North and Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune to my list. Did you know there was a Mulan retelling coming out called The Magnolia Sword. I’ve recently added Why We Sleep, In Another Life, The Green Children of Woolpit, and The Binding.

      I’m glad you could add some books to your TBR and I didn’t know about that Mulan retelling, sounds great!! I’l have to check it out, thank you for the recommendation πŸ™‚


  9. I have not read anything by Holly Bourne and I added The Places I’ve Cried In Public recently too. I am gonna check every book on this list.

  10. I actually love Katie McGarry, probably one of my favorite romance writers. She makes her characters so…real! I’ve written a few reviews on her books. They’re super good. I never heard of this one though, and I added it to my TBR list as well. Great list, I ended up adding another 2-3 to my never ending list. Great post πŸ™‚ xx

    1. You know me, all of their books are just auto-add-to-TBR πŸ˜‚ everything they write sound SO amazing and this one in particular sounds incredible ❀
      I hope we'll love all of these books! πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much, Tiffany ❀

  11. I’ve read Outrun the Moon and I can 100% confirm that it is a stunning book. The female friendships that developed alongside such a harrowing event were gorgeous. Only A Breath Apart is on my immediate to-read list. Trust me when I say Katie McGarry’s books are addictive!
    A Little Something Different was definitely different. I remember enjoying its quirky take on a love story, but some POV’s were a bit too out there and didn’t really contribute to the story, but was still fun. It’s not a remarkable book, but I appreciated how different it was.

    1. Oh that’s good to hear, you’re making me even more impatient to read it! πŸ™‚
      I’m curious about A Little Something Different, I’m glad you still found that it was a fun read!
      Thank you so, so much Lois! ❀ ❀


  12. Oh I love these types of posts, it’s always interesting to see what others have recently added to their TBR’s! 😊 I have also gotten interested in Echo North because Kat talked about it, I really have to get ahold of that one sometime πŸ˜„ I also saw Holly Bourne’s new book, but I’m afraid that it will rip out my heart 😱

    1. I’m terrified that Holly Bourne’s book will rip out my heart as well, but… I’m also so ready for it somehow? haha. It sounds so good, too?! πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much, Caro!! ❀ ❀

  13. I absolutely love The Weight of Our Sky (as you know!!) and can’t recommend it enough, though I have to warn you that it’s SUPER heavy and can be pretty rough at times. But, it does elucidate a lot about a largely invisible but important piece of history. I hope you can read it. πŸ’›

    1. I really want to read it, but I’m definitely going to wait a little while, for a time when I’m ready to tackle such a heavy book. It sounds incredible though ❀
      Thank you so, so much for stopping by ❀ ❀
