Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together
Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is a freebie so I thought I’d pull a topic that I missed or haven’t done recently. I chose to feature the books that released last year that I haven’t gotten to read yet. As always, covers/title link to the blog, Goodreads, or Amazon (affiliate).
Hotel Magnifique by Emily J. Taylor: I preordered this one thinking that I’d read it right away and then didn’t 🤦🏼♀️ It’s compared to Caraval which is one of my all-time favorite series, so I need to get to this as soon as I can.
Rise of the Snake Goddess by Jenny Elder Moke: I loved the first book in this series about Samantha Knox. Set in the 1920s, these mysteries are filled with twists and turns plus a little romance and friendship. I cannot believe I haven’t read it yet….book three comes out soon so I need to get on it!
Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard: I’ll be honest, I was on the fence about this one. I didn’t love Realm Breaker, but I liked it enough and the ending hooked me enough that I want to read it. I just got an audiobook copy from the library so I should knock this one out this month.
Where Oceans Burn by Casey L. Bond: This author has become an auto buy for me in the last few years so I actually have a pretty copy of this one sitting on my shelf. Now to find time to actually read it *sigh*
Violet Made of Thorns by Gina Chen: This book looks amazing and came in my 2nd Fairyloot box. A morally grey witch and a cursed prince? Why, yes please, sign me up for it now!
Book of Night by Holly Black: Black is another auto-buy for me after reading The Folks of the Air series. I can honestly say I don’t know what this one is about, but it is sitting on my shelf waiting to be read.
The City of Dusk by Tara Sim: Complex world building and fantasy is my preferred reading so to see many reviews written about these two things sold me. Now to find time.
A Thousand Heartbeats by Kiera Cass: Another auto-buy author for me, she’s also a DEAR (drop everything and read) author for me too, but I didn’t this time and now regret it. I have a copy now, so again, just need to make time….
The Dead Romantics by Ashley Poston: I bought this one for its quirky blurb. I love unconventional romances, and this one definitely fits the bill. I think I’m going to read this one for Valentine’s Day 😀
