Some Random Books From my TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:Ten Books You Recently Added To Your To-Be-Read List

Now, I could tell you all the random 2017 books or whatever that I have added to Goodreads, but honestly, no one wants to see that, because there aren’t any pretty covers. So, instead, I thought “how about the most recent additions to my actual TBR”, you know, the ones I own? But then I figured that would just be the ten books I literally just posted about on Saturday, so yeah, that isn’t going to work either. So I guess I can just do the next books I am planning to read? Though I did just post about those too. GOSH, this is hard.

SO, my solution: No, for real, I am just going to pick 10 absolutely random books from my TBR, because I seriously don’t know how else to do this. Then, we can discuss the books, whichever pop up from 1-864.

Okay, lovelies: Which of these should be a priority (you know, someday)? Any of these that need to be kicked off my TBR? 

I must admit, I am a little surprised that no books without covers ended up being picked! Randomness, you crazy.

  1. Jelicoe Road and Noggin are perfect. Like, pitch perfect voice and plotting and story. JR is beautiful and Noggin is just SO SO FUN. I read it over the holidays and it was the perfect book for it — I also felt like it could be a great movie. Hope you enjoy both of them, and great list!

  2. Interesting solution! Ruins and Fangirl have been in my tbr pile for way too long. I want to read Salt and Storm and Of Breakable Things. I decided to list previously released books that I just bought recently and want to read. I didn’t want to do a giant WoW post or repost my StS from Saturday, so I came up with that solution. Great random picks, btw.

    • I haven’t even read Fragments yet! I am SO behind, which is weird, because I am usually a decent series finisher. Ugh. That was a good idea! I almost did that too, until I realized I’d been good and hadn’t bought any books lately! (That has changed, no worries!)

  3. Haha – wonderful problem-solving there Sharon! 😉 And I’m looking forward to seeing what you think about these. I felt that The Line and Fangirl were a bit mediocre when I read them to be completely honest, but I know a ton of readers love them so I hope you do too. And I absolutely adored Salt & Storm! Such an original and creative story. Thanks for sharing!

  4. HAHAHAH so YOU HAVE MORE THAN 760 BOOKS. OH MAN SHANNON. I seriously think you should read Fangirl, and Salt & Storm is pretty good but not everyone’s cup of tea.

    I HAVEN’T READ ANYTHING ELSE but you should get on all of these anyways

    • YES, I have 864. Strike that- I HAD 864, now I have 880. Because, books. And Val, how can I read THESE when I have to read all the OTHER books you need me to read? Like The Book Thief? ADSOM? I mean… it’s a lot!

  5. I haven’t read any of these books besides Fangirl. It was quite boring lol.. Maybe you might like it more than me? Fig sounds interesting though <3

  6. I love the idea! So fun. FIG is on my list because it looks SO compelling. I loved FANGIRL and JELLICOE ROAD. RUINS and THE LINE were just okay for me. I hope you love them all, though.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  7. Wow Shannon hahaha us as book lovers really struggly a lot xD I read Awaken a loooong time ago and I remember liking it at the time. I read Fangirl and while I like it, not a big fan of it because I found it to be too slow for my liking.

  8. Wait, so does that mean you haven’t read Fangirl yet? Go read it!! Seriously though, it’s my favorite Rainbow Rowell book and one of my favorite books period. Haven’t read any of the other ones, but I do have some of them on my TBR as well.
