Top Ten Tuesday: Recent TBR List Additions

Hey everyone! This week's Top Ten Tuesday (as hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) is books I've recently added to my To-Be-Read list! This is a pretty easy one as I seem to be constantly picking up books, or reading about books I'd love to read!

If I haven't mentioned it before, my TBR is huge. And it's not so much a list or pile, as it is an ever-growing entity. But there are a few books that have migrated there in the last little while, so I've divided my list into books that are on my To Be Read list which I do not own, and books which were on that section of the list, but which I've recently acquired.

Five Books I Now Own & Must Read

Perfect by Rachel Joyce - It wasn't specifically on my TBR or To Buy list, but when I spotted it recently at a book sale and recognized the author, I couldn't leave without it.
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling - As I've mentioned often, I have been reading through the Harry Potter series this year, for the first time. I've basically just been reading the books as I bought them, and haven't really had the money lately to go buy the last 2 books new, so I've been waiting. But I managed to find The Deathly Hallows at a used book sale for $4, and my best friend found The Half-Blood Prince for $0.50!! This counts as one because... because I said so. :)
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - I actually had an e-version of this book on an e-reader that was gifted to me, so when the poor thing died, I lost all the books that were on it. I happened upon it at a book sale recently. 
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson - I had seen this one on Indigo several months ago and added it to my wishlist, it just sounded interesting. The cover of this one caught my eye, and when I realized it was one of my wishlist books, again, had to have it!
The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis - This book is among the first images I pinned on Pinterest a couple of years ago, but have only just now managed to find an actual copy.

5 Books I Do Not Yet Own

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco - It seems as though everyone on The OwlCrate Society has been raving about this book and the cover is gorgeous and I just want to read it!!
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard - The cover of this book caught my eye when it came out in paperback this summer. I saw it in a display at Indigo and drooled a little, but I have yet to buy it.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - My best friend tells me this is one of her favourite books and that I must read it, so obviously I have had to add it to the list. :)
Miss Peregrine's trilogy by Ransom Riggs - It's not just because of the movie! But the movie coming out reminded me of my interest in these books. I actually didn't realize it was a series until everyone started talking about them in anticipation of the movie.
The Maze Runner series by James Dashner - I was recently looking into these as a potential gift idea for my (13 year old) nephew, and started thinking "Hey... maybe I'd like to read these..." And I did love the movies, so...


  1. Fantastic list! I've heard a lot of hype about "Stalking Jack the Ripper", too. It sounds intriguing. And of course, "Fangirl" is my all time favourite! I look forward to hearing your opinions on both when you do get your hands on them!

    1. I can't find Fangirl. The library doesn't even have it. *incredulous face*

  2. I just picked up my copy of Stalking Jack the Ripper! I can't wait to try it!

    1. I'm sure I will! I'm dying to finish my current reads so I can jump right in. :D
      Thanks for reading, I will definitely check out your post later!

  4. 'Jack Ripper' is a book I'm curious about as well as Red Queen. I actually own the latter, and have as yet to read it. Ooops! :)

    1. Oh man, I own so many books I haven't read yet. I hope you like it when you get around to reading it!
