✘✘✘ The Lows ✘✘✘
❌Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
This book does sound lovely and fantasy-like, but I think it will be too slow-paced for me.
❌Paola Santiago and the River of Tears by Tehlor Kay Mejia
So, another one that sounds great, but I just don’t read MG anymore
❌Rebelwing by Andrea Tang
I’m just not feeling this one anymore…
❌The Throne’s Trials by Nadhira Satria
The synopsis is a wee bit confusing to me and I am cutting back on the royal books on my TBR since I seem to stray away from them now.
❌ Almost Invisible by Maureen Garvie
While this sounds powerful and important, I tend not to read contemporary fiction like this.
Yikes… guess I’m feeling cutthroat today.
♛ The Highs ♛
Top 10 adds to my TBR this week!
- A Stitch in Time by Kelley Armstrong
I’m not usually into time travel or other messing with time tropes, but I do love this author and I’m willing to give this one a try.
- Daughter of Sparta by Claire M. Andrews
Greek mythology! And she wishes to be a Spartan warrior! This sounds like such fun.
- The Girl Who Wasn’t There by Penny Joelson
I’m just into thrillers right now and this one sounds fantastic!!
- What Lies Between Us by John Marrs
Again, I’m into thrillers right now and this one I heard was really good.
- The Flip Side by Jame Bailey
This sounds like such fun! Deciding his whole life with the flip of a coin.
- The Boy Toy by Nicola Marsh
Books were the woman is older always interest me and this one also takes place in Australia! It is nice to read books set outside of USA.
- Opium and Absinthe by Lydia Kang
Do you see the cover??? Plus this is a historical mystery with a potential paranormal bent. this will be an interesting read.
- A Deal with the Elf King by Elisa Kova
That cover, the potential darker romance, and it is a slow burn??? Just… wow.
- The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
Super popular one, I know, but I just wasn’t sure. Recently I’ve been hearing good things by my GR friends, so I figured I should add it to my TBR.
- Binding Shadows by Jasmine Silvera
I read a snippet of this on Twitter and I am now in love with the hero. I will be reading this one very soon.
TBR TOTAL: 1115 — up 4 from last week.
I’ve been re-reading a bit this week and also watching a LOT more TV, so… it makes sense. I’m adding more than I’m reading.
