Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by the folks at the Broke and the Bookish. Each week has a different theme where participants try to come up with ten things to fit the theme.
This week is Ten Books I’ve Added to My To-Be-Read List Lately. I don’t update my GoodReads to-read shelf that often, but I’m using it to make this list, so there might be some in the list that’s actually been on my TBR for a while, but it just made its way to the to-read shelf recently.
The Dragonbone Chair
The Dragonbone Chair is the first book of Tad William’s Memory, Thorn and Sorrow trilogy. It’s the story of a man named Simon who gets caught up in an epic adventure. I’ve seen high praises for the series from the fantasy subreddit, so I’m interested in checking it out.
Dragonflight is the first book of Ann McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern. It’s often been called one of the most inspirational work of fantasy fiction. Authors like Christopher Paolini and Brandon Sanderson have often called it so. I’m really interested in reading it.
This Savage Song
I really loved Vicious and Victoria Schwab’s writing so I added this to my to-read shelf after finishing Vicious.
A Darker Shade of Magic
Same thing with This Savage Song. Though I’m actually going to tackle this one first.
Untitled (Throne of Glass #6)
I finished this recently and really loved it, so I added this to my to-read shelf right after I was done. No cover yet, but I hope it’s better than Empire of Storms one.
Sword of Fire and Sea
I’m not certain where I saw this book from. I think it might be from a blog, but I’m not 100% sure which one. Anyway, I was instantly drawn in by the cover. The colors, the font, plus griffins are always a good thing. It doesn’t have the best review score on GoodReads, so I’m wondering if I would actually read it, that is if I can actually get a copy of it.
The Garden of Evening Mist
This one is an award winning novel by Malaysian author Tan Twan Eng. It’s set in Malaysia just before the Japanese occupation in World War II and after. It’s not usually the kind of book I read, but I really want to read more Malaysian authors.
The Lost Knight
This is another book I added to the to-read shelf because of the cover. Plus the ratings look great, even though there’s only 24 so far.
I added this to my to-read shelf to remember to read this book, since it keeps slipping my mind somehow. I really loved the original three Abhorsen books, and I’ve yet to read Clariel, but I’m looking forward to reading this eventually.
The Acts of Caine series has been on my radar for a long time but I finally added it to my TBR after finding out that the series has some elements of virtual reality where the hero is from Earth and parts of the book takes place in an alternate reality ala Ready Player One.
Those are ten books I’ve recently added to my ever growing mountain of a TBR. *sigh* Money and time is becoming more and more of a valuable commodity. So many books to read, so little time and money to read them all. Anyway, have you read any of the books listed above? Let me know your thoughts on them if you have.
