Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I’ve Added To My TBR Lately

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books I’ve Added To My TBR Lately

This is pretty straightforward: so let’s get on with the list:
Click on the title to go to the goodreads page for each of the books.

Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino

Okay so I’ve been hearing my friends mention Renee Carlino for quite sometime now, and I admit I am very curious. One of my friends is a huge fan of hers so I’d like to try her books out.

A Place in the Sun by R.S. Grey

TBR I’ve added all her books to my TBR, but this just happens to be her latest book. This author has been recommended to me as well a few times when I was looking for more contemporary romances that are NA.

A Study in Scarlet Women

I am a sucker for Sherlock books and Sherlock retellings, too. Oh, and apparently she’s named Charlotte too, which reminds me of another Sherlock spinoff I’ve read earlier this year, A Study in Charlotte. We’ll see if I turn out to like this one too.

Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas

So far most of my friends who have read this gave this about 4-5 stars, and all they could say about this was that it was mindblowing. Colour me intrigued.

Spiral by Koji Suzuki
123479
Haha, okay so I survived reading Ring. And I actually want more, omg. It’s really so interesting that I added the rest of the books in the series to my TBR too. But, yeah, I can only read this when the sun is up lol.

Only Everything by Kieran Scott

I got interested in this because of the mythology aspect. I love it when YA books mix mythology into them: Percy Jackson, Oh My Gods, Sweet Venom. And I’ve liked them all so far so I hope I like this one too.

One Was Lost by Natalie D. Richards
28321033
This sounds creepy and I’ve slowly been trying to explore more creepy thrillers lately so I’d love to read this. That summary has got me super curious about the book.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1)
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book, from friends and from blogs I’ve visited in the past month. The only other Jack the Ripper related story I’ve read was Maureen Johnson’s The Name of the Star, and that got a good four stars out of me. I can’t wait to start reading this.

Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan
20312458
It has a POC LGBT main character, and I’m curious as to how the story plays out.

We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
23677341
A few friends have read this already, and most of them have good things to say about this book. This has been recommended to me a lot of times too, so I’m definitely going to check this out.

And there you have it! Have you read any of the books on the list? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

    Great list! Definitely adding Dangerous Girls to my own TBR – sounds like just my kind of read. And We Are The Ants, how was I not aware of it until now? It sounds like an absolute gem!

  7. A POC LGBT main character?! Sadly that’s still about as rare as a unicorn these days, so I am very pumped for Tell Me How a Crush Should Feel!!!

  8. That Spiral cover is dizzying, but I’m intrigued. Stalking Jack the Ripper is a book I really want to get to before the end of the year. I hope we both enjoy it!

  9. I reaaaaaaaally need to read DANGEROUS GIRLS, especially as a fan of thrillers. In terms of messed-upness and being a GOOD thriller, it seems to be at the top of everyone’s list. And, like you, for the most part all reviews I’ve seen tend to rate it high and give it lots of praise.

      If you love thrillers go read Confessions by Kanae Minato too! It’s so messed up as well. And it has a movie too if you wanna compare it to the book. Haha. It’s so screwed up it’s about a teacher whose toddler daughter died and the murderer was one of the students in her 7th grade class 🙈
