Recent TBR Additions (9th of August, 2018)

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

It’s been a while. It has. But here we are. I don’t know how I managed to do this, but I haven’t updated you on books I am dying to read in a while, so I thought it might be nice to do so! So here are some new books I added to my TBR since May, when I last updated you.

1. And the Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness

And the Ocean Was Our SkyWhy I added it: Firstly, I adore Patrick Ness and I have yet to read something by him that I don’t like. Secondly, this just sounds brilliant. It’s a reversed Moby Dick and it just sounds beyond interesting. And it’s illustrated. And I have an ARC of it. It all clicked together and I am super excited to get to this one soon and then update you on how amazing it is.

2. Sheets by Brenna Thummler

SheetsWhy I added it: Because it sounds and looks so freakin’ adorable. This is a Middle Grade graphic novel about a ghost in a laundry shop. How cute??? It follows Marjorie, a 13 year old girl who is stuck working at the family laundry business and Wendell, who happens to be a boy ghost. It just looks adorable and like it will be incredibly fun and heartwarming and that’s always amazing.

3. Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture edited by Roxane Gay 

Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape CultureWhy I added it: I love Roxane Gay and find her to be brutally honest and unapologetic, which I really enjoy. So an essay collection, edited by her, about rape culture and harassment sounds absolutely brilliant and like something that you shouldn’t miss out on. I can’t wait to read this one.

4. City of Lies by Sam Hawke 

City of Lies (Poison Wars #1)Why I added it: This book was recommended on my absolute favorite podcast – Get Booked, and it sounds awesome. It’s a first book in a Fantasy series, and it follows Jovan (that’s a Serbian name by the way, our version of Jacob), who is the best friend of the Chancellor’s heir and also a master of poisons and the book follows him and his sister Kalina, as they try to save the Heir after the Chancellor is poisoned. It comes highly recommended and sounds really intriguing. And it’s written by a woman, which is great.

5. A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews

A Thousand Perfect NotesWhy I added it: I have loved Cait’s blog for years, Paper Fury, and I was so excited that she wrote a book. How cool is that? And it sounds so poetic and wonderful. It’s about Beck, who lives with his abusive mother, who forces him to play the piano because her musical career was ruined. He doesn’t dare stand up to her, but then he meets August and his life starts changing after that. It really sounds like it’s emotionally charged and wonderful, so I am excited to read it.

And those are new books on my TBR! Would love to hear what new books you recently discovered, so let me know in the comments! And let me know if you have read any of these!

  1. Omg, I really want to read And The Ocean Was Our Sky, I have no idea if it’s really my cup of tea but it sounds so interesting and I certainly can’t wait!
    And I loved Sheets! I found it in the Read Now section on NetGalley and also found it fun and heartwarming and then I read it and nearly cried my eyes out. It’s not just cute, I can tell you that, but it’s still VERY cute and I’m so in love with the art style!

  3. Wow, A Thousand Perfect Notes was written by Paper Fury? Like, I’d heard of this book and her blog before, but I never connected the dots. (Again, wow.) Also, I love Patrick Ness too! I’m totally going to check out more of his books myself. And Sheets looks absolutely adorable! That cover is freaking amazing! ❤
