It’s that time of the week again where I publish a post about my top ten books of something. For today, it’s all about books I recently added to my TBR. The ever-trustworthy Goodreads helped me what books are on my TBR. So here is a list of those books:
- The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth
- Chewy Noh and the Phantasm of Winter by Tim Learn
- The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks
- Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
- Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehesi Coates
- Brutal Youth by Anthony Breznican
- The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
- A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
- Red Rising by Pierce Brown
- Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
As evidently stated above, there are a few YA books included in the list. Most of them, I believe, are literary works because firstly, I want to widen my horizon this year and by reading books out of my comfort zone is one thing I want to do to be satisfied. Between the World and Me is one of the books I badly want to read this year because I’ve been seeing it everywhere and the cover is eye-catching.
Nonetheless, I will still keep on reading YA because it’s what I like. Literary fictions/non-fictions are just some books I want to try if I’ll like it in the end or not (hopefully, yes). Americanah is also one of the books that I want to read; don’t ask me why because I have no idea. Brutal Youth is a coming-of-age book, and I’ve seen great reviews for this novel. It’s even blurbed by Stephen Chbosky who is the author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. For A Tale for the Time Being, I just saw it on Goodreads and impulsively added it on my TBR because of its COVER because can you NOT see? I also added The Sword of Shannara on my list because I just saw the first four episodes of the TV show and I love it so much. Having seen that the series is EXTREMELY long, I don’t even know if I’ll even read it anymore.
Blackhearts, The Star-Touched Queen and The Killing Jar are the young-adult books in this list, although I think that Red Rising is in an adult genre. Red Rising is on one of my TBRs a long time ago, but was rekindled again after learning that Morning Star is almost out, and the series is almost ending. Lastly, Chewy Noh is a book I’m going to receive from an author who is unbelievably nice and friendly, and this series is middle grade which genre I also adore, so I’m really excited to acquire these books.
