Top Ten books I recently added to my TBR



Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten books I recently added to my TBR.


This week's Top Ten Tuesday are the ten books most recently added to my to read list.  A lot of these shouldn't be on here.  But I am running behind the bandwagon.  

The Maze Runner

I'm not sure if this completely counts, because I got it from the library the other day, but I'm gonna put it up here anyway.

Uglies

I know a few people that have read this and the idea of it intrigued me, so I recently put it on the TBR shelf.

Twelve years a slave
I discovered that my family actually owns a copy and that I want to read it at some point in my teenage years.

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2)

Cinder was the first book review I did, and I loved the book, but the library never had Scarlet when I was there and at the time I didn't have any money so I kept forgetting to get it.  It has recently been re-added to my TBR shelf.

Eyes wide open (The Outlaw Chronicles #1)
I tried a Ted Dekker book before, and I just couldn't figure out how to read mystery, I have never been into mystery before(outside of Nancy Drew).  But I'm gonna give this one a chance, mostly because from what I've read of Ted Dekker, He's a really great writer.

Sing (The Homeward Trilogy #2)
I read the first book in this trilogy a while back, and from what I remember it was pretty good.  I saw the series at the library and I remembered the first one, so I thought I'd add this one to my TBR shelf.

The Hunger Games
I have actually read this whole trilogy already, but I recently decided that I need to read all of them again.  So technically this goes on the To-Be-Re-read shelf.

Any of the 53 Star Trek books on my bookshelf(that I haven't read yet).

Some friend of a friend was selling a whole bunch of stuff, and I bought 50 Star Trek books(from TOS to Voyager) for 20 dollars.  It was a good day.  

Wendy Darling
I saw this one at the library, and read the back cover.  Not only did it look good, but I generally like Colleen Oakes, and Peter Pan is one of my favorite fictional characters, I love spin offs of the original Peter Pan story.

Anne of Green Gables
I don't know why I have yet to read this series, Ally keeps telling me to, and I know it's gonna be good.  But I WILL read it eventually.

  1. I have to say that both Scarlet and Uglies are two really good books... Uglies especially was a super formative novel during my early teenage years. <3 I hope you enjoy these. :D

  2. You have some really great books coming up! I really enjoyed The Maze Runner, but I lost interest in the rest of the series. I also loved Scarlet, maybe even dare-I-say-it more than Cinder. Hope you like it too!

    That Peter Pan spin-off looks super interesting. I have a soft spot for Peter Pan:)

  4. I hope you’ll enjoy Scarlet. I read it twice and really enjoyed it. We get to meet some new and really awesome characters in this one. I’ve seen the Wendy Darling book on Goodreads although I don’t know anyone who’s actually read it. I guess I’ll wait to see what you think of it before adding it to my TBR. I do really enjoy Peter Pan retellings so the book does really sound interesting.

  5. Ahhhh Anne of Green Gables ♥ A Childhood favorite of mine!! Oh I hope you'll love it as much as I did! Maze Runner is one I still need to read too, I'm hoping to get to it this year :) I really want to do a Hunger Games reread too, I only read the trilogy once and to be honest, it deserves a reread! I hope you'll enjoy Scarlet and the rest of The Lunar Chronicles books :D

  7. Scarlet is great - more violent than Cinder, but still so good. I'm trying not to give you a hard time about Anne of Green Gables. Gilbert was my first book crush and I've read the books and watched the movies multiple times. With my kids too. Yes, you should read it. :)

  8. Ooh, I've read Eyes Wide Open! That whole series is fantastic (if a little confusing at times), but my favorite one is the last book, Hacker. It's just... WOW. So great :D

    Also, LUNAR CHRONICLLLLLLLES!!!!! <3 <3

  9. Ooh, you have some good looking books on your list. Scarlet is AMAZING. If you liked Cinder, you're pretty certain to love Scarlet too. But don't you just hate it when libraries don't have the books you really want to read? I've been hoping to read Uglies myself, but the library never has it. The second book, Pretties, was interesting though. Have fun reading!
