A feature which is only called weekly in which I tell you about new books I discovered.
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done one of these, so I am finally back with a TBR update and I have some really fun books to share with you today!
1. Wimmera by Mark Brandi
Why I added it: I am pretty sure I saw this on someone’s blog but I can’t remember whose… Anyways, this is a Mystery novel and the premise is one of those catching mystery ones: two childhood best friends and 20 years later a body turns up. It’s pretty standard, but it sparked my interest AND it’s set in a small town so it’s bound to be great.
2. The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall
Why I added it: Now this one is completely awesome. The story follows Eric who loses his memory and wakes up not knowing anything and then has to follow a series of “clues” to find out what happened to him or just who he is. I love stories like that and this sounds super cool.
3. Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate
Why I added it: Because this sounds right up my street. It’s a YA novel following seven high school students whose secrets represent the seven deadly sins and I guess those secrets start to surface. Sounds super good and it’s been getting a lot of positive reviews.
4. The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories by Ken Liu
Why I added it: You know that I am on the hunt for a short story collection that I will finally love. And basically someone said that there’s a story in here that I would absolutely love. Besides, like every single story in this one got some kind of an award, so I am hoping that THIS will be the short story collection that makes me fall in love with the short story as a concept.
5. Tin Man by Sarah Winman
Why I added it: The only thing I know about this is that it’s devastating and that it’s about a relationship between two guys. I found it on Jen Campbell’s channel and just the way she spoke about it made me want to instantly read it.
That’s it for this TBR update! As always, I’d love to hear about new books you discovered or about the ones you’re reading at the moment!
