recent TBR additions

Weekly TBR Additions (10. August 2017.)

A weekly feature in which I share new books I added to my TBR.

Would you look at that, I am getting back to actually posting these weekly. I am back to share with you some new books I discovered lately. And I am really excited about these, so let’s get to it.

1. Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips

Fierce Kingdom

Book Depository

Why I added it: I am sure you’ve already heard of this because it’s been getting all the buzz. This is a thriller about a mother and a son who get stuck in a zoo, after the mother sees something while exiting, which sends her running right back inside. This sounds so thrilling and like an interesting concept. And I am really in the mood to finally read a thriller.

2. The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh

The Blinds

Book Depository

Why I added it: Because the concept of it is so amazing. Basically The Blinds is a town in rural Texas where people who’ve either witnessed or committed crimes get sent to. Their memories are erased and they get new identities, but they can’t leave the town. BRILLIANT, right? The town is pretty mellow and calm, until a suicide followed by a murder shake things up. I am so pumped to read this.

3. The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

Why I added it: As you know, I’ve read and loved The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue (you can find my review HERE) and I was so hoping that we’ll get a sequel following Felicity. AND WE DID. The blurb reads: “... featuring travel, pirates, and a science girl gang” and I AM SO READY FOR IT.

4. The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Book Depository

Why I added it: Someone on Booktube raved about this one and called it philosophical, which is like a buzz word for me. It follows the concierge of a fancy apartment building in Paris who hides that she is actually a bit of an intellectual and a young girl who lives in the building and hides her true self as well. This is a book that I am bound to enjoy.

5. The Wrong Way to Save Your Life: Essays by Megan Stielstra

The Wrong Way to Save Your Life: Essays

Book Depository

Why I added it: As always, I finish with non fiction even though I never seem to really read it. Anyways, this is an essay collection that focuses on “fear, creativity, art, faith, academia, the Internet, and justice“. I am really in the mood to read something current and poignant and this sounds like exactly that. I am looking forward to it.


So those are my new additions! As always, share yours with me! Let me know if you have read or plan to read any of these, I’d love to hear!

  1. I haven’t heard of a lot of these, but Fierce Kingdom sounds really good. I have to say that I didn’t like The Elegance of the Hedgehog at all, but I know that a lot of people did. It took me forever to read, and I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. I would agree, though, that it is quite philosophical. If you end up reviewing it, I would be very interested to read what you have to say about it.
