And Then There Were NoneKill the Queen (Crown of Shards, #1)The Smoke Thieves (The Smoke Thieves, #1)Picture Us in the LightGirls of Paper and Fire (Girls of Paper and Fire #1)

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
I am a huge fan of classic mysteries and even more so for these tropes: locked room, dinner parties, “one of us is the killer,” and a others, so this book hits so many of my buttons ^_^ I read a few Agatha Christie back in the day, but can’t remember which. I’d love to read more by her. 

Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep 
This was a harder choice… it sounds okay, perhaps I’d like it, but I’m not a huge fan of the Elemental Assassin series. All my friends who’ve read this have liked it though, so I’ll keep it around for a rainy day. 

The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green 
This is one I keep adding and removing from my TBR which I think says it all. It sounds interesting, but I’m reading a lot of mixed reviews on it. 

Picture Us in the Light by Kelly Loy Gilbert
This is one I think I added for the LGBT rep, but I think I’m doing good on having enough of those books on my TBR that I actually want to read, that I don’t need to keep one I’m not totally interested in. 

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
This is another one I’m seeing tons of mixed reviews for from my friends, but it sounds so good that I still want to read it. 


 The Highs 

Okay, this may be shocking to some of you, I know it shocked me when I noticed, but I have only added 9– NINE– books to my TBR this week 0.0”. Is it really Friday?? What is going on? So, this week, I’ll only be showing my top 5 highs. 

End Game (The Foundling, #5)Accidentally EngagedBy a ThreadDaughter of Black LakeRent a Boyfriend

  • End Game by Hailey Edwards 
    The last book of the series! Can’t believe we are here already… 
  • Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron
    Fake dating and close proximity! ^_^
  • By a Thread by Lucy Score
    I’m still not sure how I feel about this author, but this book sounds funny so I thought it would be worth giving a try. 
  • Daughter of Black Lake by Cathy Marie Buchanan
    It is historical, but not about an era I usually read, so I’m definitely interested. 
  • Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao
    You can’t tell me the premise to this one doesn’t sound adorably cute!

TBR TOTAL: 1122  — 2 more than last week

Guess this is to make up for last week and my 15 adds hahaha. 

What is new on your TBR??
