  • Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation
  • Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending

Skyward (Skyward, #1)The Demon King (Seven Realms, #1)The Warrior Heir (The Heir Chronicles, #1)Reign of the Fallen (Reign of the Fallen, #1)Society of Wishes (Wish Quartet, #1)

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
Don’t freak! I plan on reading this– but I want to read Elantris first, possibly even Mistborn. I’m weird in that I like to read things in chronological order and I only like having a few books by an author on my list at a time unless I’ve read multiple books by them and even then 5 max. 

✅ The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
My fiance bought this for me, yes an actual physical copy. I’ll read it eventually, but first… 

The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
This series takes place before Seven Realms, so I want to read it first. Usually I’d take The Demon King off my list, but since I own the book, it’ll stay. 

 Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
This was a hard decision. Such mixed reviews…. but think I’ll give it a try still. 

Society of Wishes by Elisa Kova & Lynn Larsh
This is another “I keep adding books by this author to my TBR, but have yet to read any” situation. I’m leaving Air Awakens since I own it, but let this one drop for now. I’m still very much interested. 


 The Highs 

Okay, 20 adds isn’t horrible! Definitely made picking a top 10 much easier 😁

The Avant-Guards, Vol. 3Coin TricksThe Sword Dancer (Lovers and Rebels, #1; Tang Dynasty, #4)Beef Cake (Donner Bakery, #4)Faire Fugitive (The Faire Folk #1)

  • The Avant-Guards, vol. 3 by Carly Usdin & Noah Hayes
    The final volume!!
  • Coin Tricks by Willow Scarlett
    Look at those cuties. 
  • The Sword Dancer by Jeannie Lin
    A Chinese Historical Romance? Yes please this sounds awesome.
  • Beef Cake by Jiffy Kate
    Look how cute this cover is! I won a cope too~! I really need to get started on this series ASAP. 
  • Faire Fugitive by Madeleine Ribbon
    I’ll be honest, I hadn’t actually read the synopsis from adding it to my TBR– it looked interesting and a few of my friends had added it. So, I thought I’d be deleting it today. Except as I was reading it my thoughts went “Oh… oh, no…” annnnndd now I have it out from KU?? It was an automatic reaction– I can’t be held accountable.

Betrayals & Broken Promises (Masquerade of Myths, #1)Rule Breaker (Mixed Messages, #1)We Ride Upon SticksSorcerer to the Crown (Sorcerer Royal, #1)TBA: New Family Series (Bailey Brothers, #0.5)

  • Betrayals & Broken Promises by Takari Hunter
    I’ll be joining a BR of this next week~
  • Rule Breaker by Lily Morton
    Enemies to Lovers and coworkers you say?? I’m ready! 
  • We Ride Upon Sticks by Quan Barry
    A Hockey team from Salem, MA who start using their town’s history to their advantage? This sounds like such fun. 
  • Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho
    Such intrigue… there is a lot going on in the synopsis, that I can’t tell what is most interesting.
  • Bailey Brothers series prequel by Claire Kingsley
    Another Claire Kingsley series! I’m addicted and can’t wait for this one.


Hey one less than last week! Look at me go 😄 If I can stick to reading what is already on my TBR I’ll be knocking this down in no time.
*lol yeah right*

What’s new on your TBR you’re excited to read?
