KultiSpider’s Revenge (Elemental Assassin, #5)Kings of the Wyld (The Band, #1)Strange GraceArchenemies (Renegades, #2)

Kulti by Mariana Zapata
I think the most surprising thing is that there is a Zapata books I haven’t read! especially one so popular…. but I will! One day! This one isn’t at my libraries except as audio so erg, I can’t do that. I know I’ll have to buy this one.

Spider’s Revenge by Jennifer Estep
This was a difficult choice. I’ve lost interest in this series as I had to stop reading it as the repetition was starting to annoy me. It has been 2 years since I read it and I’m not inclined to return. Although, this isn’t to say I wouldn’t recommend the series to others– it is interesting. 

Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
Okay, I’ve heard AMAZING things about this one and it has been recommended to me as well. I do plan on reading it. For some reason I feel like waiting for a languid day in the autumn or winter…. honestly I almost feel like reading it today haha, but think I’m putting it off until December/January.

Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton
Now, I’ve heard good things about this one, but I also wasn’t a fan of The Queen’s of Innis Lear. So, I’m not sure… ah okay, I’m going to pass because a lot of people are saying it is a slower pace which isn’t usually my style.

Archenemies by Marissa Meyer
This is another difficult one for me. I enjoyed Renegades but did think it was a wee bit… wandering, if you will. It felt overly long, which seems to be the theme with this one, but I do love stories where the main characters are anti-heroes/villains. Uggghhhhh this is a hard choice, but I suppose I’ll remove this one as I don’t think I’ll get back to it. Such a shame…


♛ The Highs 

Another week of few additions to my TBR — what is going on??? So, here are my top 5 additions to my TBR.

Cursed Love (Broderick Coven, #1)Fireheart TigerThe Water Dragon's Bride, Vol. 6Rough and TumbleChimes at Midnight (October Daye, #7)

  • Cursed Love by AJ Renee
    Demons, curses, witches — I’m in!
  • Fireheart Tiger by Aliette De Bodard
     A powerful romantic fantasy that reads like The Goblin Emperor meets Howl’s Moving Castle in a pre-colonial Vietnamese-esque world.
    TBH I didn’t read any more than this. I’m so in love with this.
  • The Water Dragon’s Bride by Rei Toma
    I’m on volume 6 now and really enjoying this series.
  • Rough and Tumble by Shae Connor
    I grabbed this one from Netgalley. It sounds cute, so I’m looking forward to reading it.
  • Chimes at Midnight by Seanan McGuire
    Honestly, I almost DNF’d this series and I’m so glad I continued it. This addition was such fun.


Ayyyyyeeeee one less than last week, such a surprise! I was mostly reading off my TBR too, so I think this has more to do with not adding much and removing more from my lows.

What is new on your TBR??
