Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR

Now that’s an easy one. Hello everyone. I’m back with a Top ten Tuesday list. This is a meme by Thebrokeandbookish which I’ve been participating in for a long time now. 🙂


I’m letting you look into the TOP 10 books I recently added to my TBR!
(Click on titles to add on goodreads)

1. The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh (The Wrath and the dawn #2)


Even though I don’t like the cover that much,  as soon as I finished The Wrath and the dawn (Yes I read it. And it was amazing), I knew I had to read this too! I know now what all the hype is about. What a wonderful book!

2. The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead


Another book by Richelle Mead! And even though I wasn’t a big fan of Soundless and have read nothing by her except Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series, I’m still excited for this one.

Big and sweeping, spanning the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court. 
Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies capable of arranging powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court.
When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together, they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first, as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and later, when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor.

But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands

3. The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry


I just found it intriguing and added it.

4. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Strange the Dreamer is the story of: 
the aftermath of a war between gods and men
a mysterious city stripped of its name
a mythic hero with blood on his hands
a young librarian with a singular dream
a girl every bit as perilous as she is imperiled
alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.
Welcome to Weep.

5. The Problem with forever by Jennifer L Armentrout


Interesting title and cover. A contemporary romance by Jennifer L Armentrout. Of course I want it.

6. The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan


After The Sword summer, there’s no way I won’t read this.

7. This is where the world ends by Amy Zhang


After reading Falling into place  by her,  I do want to read more of her books.

8. Bright smoke,  cold fire by Rosamund Hodge.

Author’s name is enough.

9.  It ends with us by Colleen Hoover

Another CoHo book. That’s all I need.

10. The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins


A fairy tale retelling by Wendy Higgins. I’m in.

Kill the beast. Win the girl.
A strange beast stirs fear in the kingdom of Lochlanach, terrorizing towns with its brutality and hunger. In an act of desperation, a proclamation is sent to all of Eurona—kill the creature and win the ultimate prize: the daughter of King Lochson’s hand in marriage.

Love, Alex 🙂

  1. So many interesting books on your list! I was starting to worry I was the only one who doesn’t really like The Rose and the Dagger’s cover. Personally, I prefer the first’s.
    The Love That Split the World has been getting a lot of hype on the blogosphere. I’m really looking forward to reading it.
    Awesome list! 🙂
