top ten tuesday that artsy reader girl

Most Recent Additions to My TBR – Top Ten Tuesday #20

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl at the start of this year. This week’s prompt was ‘Favourite Novellas/Short Stories’ but I haven’t really read enough of those to make a list so I thought, books that have been on my TBR for the shortest time?


Hoang, H - The Kiss Quotient10. The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

I had been hearing so much about this book that I just had to read and see what was going on. I received and e-ARC not too long ago too so hopefully I’ll be getting to it soon. Hopefully.

 

Pitcock, T - Just Friends9. Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock

I can’t remember where I saw this one but I guess I was feeling cutesy light summer-y romance ’cause here we are. I’m pretty sure I’ll still read it eventually.

 

Zoboi, I - Pride8. Pride by Ibi Zoboi

I am a sucker for a Pride and Prejudice retelling and this one just sounds too amazing, just check out the descriptionI know, right?! So I requested without a second thought but knew even if I wasn’t approved I’d probably buy it anyway.

Ness, P - And the Ocean Was Our Sky7. And the Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness

The only other Ness book I’ve read is A Monster Calls and whilst it was a somewhat morbid read, it was also beautiful both in description and illustration so I was hoping this might be the Ness book I fall in love with. I know on my list is also The Rest of Us Just Live Here.

 

England, M. K - The Disasters6. The Disasters by M. K. England

I first heard of this book on Norees @ No Reads Too Great Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag Post and the description, complete with space heists and rebels, sounded oh so good and right up my street and I just couldn’t not request it on Edelweiss (It got approved – yay!) but to be honest I’ll probably buy it too.

 

Caliskan, P - Girlfriend, Interupted5. Girlfriend, Interrupted by Patricia Caliskan

This isn’t usually a book I would look at but I was sold on it by an author interview post I saw over at The Burgeoning Bookshelf. It sounds like a fun rom-com type story even though I’m always iffy on books with kids from an adults perspective.

 

Kuang, R. F - The Poppy War4. The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang

I saw some pretty amazing comments about this book on Amy @ The Little Booknerds in the Corner’s June Wrap Up and I know we share a lot of the same opinions on books based on her reviews so I just had to add it – I was so disappointed I didn’t request it when I saw it on NetGalley way back when but – live and learn. Can’t wait to get into it now!

 

Kwan, K - Crazy Rich Asians3. Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

I saw a review for this fun, soap opera-esque novel over on Nikki @ Saturday Nite Reader’s blog and it sounded so good and also so different to what I usually read that I thought I’d give it a try since I’m trying to mix my reading patterns up a little.

 

Reid, T. J - The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo2. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Yet another recommendation found in Nikki @ Saturday Nite Reader’s reviews, I had heard bits about this book and read Reid’s Maybe in Another Life beforehand but this review really sold it for me and I look forward to reading it.

 

Mindul Writers Retreat Authors - Into the Woods1.  Into the Woods by Mindful Writers Retreat Authors

This compilation of short stories, poems and other writings is said to capture all the wonder and magic of the woods. Usually, this wouldn’t appeal to me but all proceeds from this book are due to go to The Children’s Heart Foundation and I think that is a fantastic way to raise money and support a charity.


Have you read any of these books yet? What do you think of them? Don’t forget to post your Top Ten Tuesday links in the comments!

Until next time!

    • Me too! Funny story – I kind of got catfished yesterday by an Audible email because I thought their daily deal was 2.99 for this book on audiobook when it was actually for The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle and then I was sad. (so not that funny a story, just ironic since I like reading I just don’t seem very good at it)

  1. I have the Kiss Quotient ready for me to read and review and I really want to read I really want to read The Seven Husbands… (and I nearly got catfished by the same email so you’re not alone.)
