Does the title of this post truly need more of an introduction? We all know the rabbit hole called Goodreads. We all know the blogging community is filled with enablers, encouraging you to add more and more books to your TBR. And we all know how bad we are at saying no and not adding new books to our lists.
But, whatever right?! We keep doing it anyway! And today.. I’ll be sharing the last ten books I added to my Goodreads’ “Want to read”-shelf! Although, I have to admit, it’s entirely possible the books mentioned in this post have already been lost in the void of want-to-reads by the time it goes up. It doesn’t matter when you prepare a post like this, chances are huge you’ve added new books to your TBR right afterwards!
So, let’s take a look at those “Ten Most Recent Additions To My To-Read List” and.. if you want a more correct one, you can always just hop on over to my Goodreads-shelf, haha.
All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out!
I added Tradition right before I started this post because of the rape trigger warning. You know by now that, as a survivor myself, I try reading books talking about the subject as often as I can. As for The Lost Sisters by Holly Black, I’m baffled I hadn’t added it to my shelf yet! Let alone gotten my hands on a copy but.. unfortunately my new book buying rules don’t allow me to impulsively buy the thing anymore.
The Bartemaeus-trilogy was recommended to me by Mehek because it should have a sassy character and footnotes – which is something I’m definitely up to trying after reading Nevernight! Fourth is Silent Song, which I had to add as soon as I read about one of the main characters being Deaf. Enough said.
Here and Now and Then is one I added thanks to Kaleena’s review! I usually don’t read a lot of science fiction, but she totally convinced me this might just be one of the novels I can end up loving to pieces! I’ll Give You the Sun has been on my radar for a while, but somehow I never added it to my Goodreads-shelf. Fixed that when Sofii commented on my favorite contemporary reads of 2018 that I should totally read it if I hadn’t yet!
Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman was added because I loved The Illuminae Files and I discovered I absolutely love Jay Kristoff’s solo work as well. So why not try and see how I feel about Kaufman’s solo work, right?
I’m not surprised at all that there’s at least one fairy tale retelling in the last ten books I added! Stepsister is written from – you guessed it – the stepsister’s POV in a Cinderella re-imagining. It sounds dark and gorgeous!
The last two books of this top ten are How it feels to float and Missing, Presumed Dead. The first one I added because I was sold on the blurb immediately. I mean.. There should be queer rep and mental health rep? And for some reason I feel like there might be a rape trigger in there as well – but I could be wrong about that. I even tried requesting this title but alas – no such luck.
Missing, Presumed Dead is a bit outside of my comfort zone with the paranormal aspect and murder and such but.. It does have queer rep and I can never say no to that!
Do any of these speak to you as they do to me?
Which one looks most interesting? Did you add anything to your TBR?
[Pretty sure this week’s TTT will have us all adding books on Goodreads..]
