Top Ten Tuesday - My TBR Hates Me

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. They feature a different top ten list every week. This week's topic is top books I recently added to my monstrous TBR pile.

1. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson - Peter Pan retelling!

2. Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson - Okay, look at the author. Is it that surprising that I have added it to my TBR??

3. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - I do believe that this is the only Morgan Matson book I have yet to read. 

4. P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han - I just read the first one a couple weeks ago and now I must have it! The first one was such a cute read.

5. The Hopeful by Tracy O'Neill - A story about a figure skater who is injured and gets addicted to painkillers. Sounds kind of awesome.

6. The Siren by Kiera Cass - I am loving the sound of the premise of the new Kiera Cass book. And the cover is gorgeous!

7. Denton Little's Birthdate by Lance Rubin - I recently read the first one and now I am so excited for the sequel. I loved the first one!

8. Crooked Heart by Lissa Evans - A novel set in WWII about a relationship between a widow con artist and a young boy, who was made an orphan as a result of bombings in London. I love books set in WWII and this one sounds so different. 

9. Afterparty by Daryl Gregory - This one sounds crazy interesting. It's set during a time when people can actually print or even invent drugs right off the Internet (!!!). After a girl kills herself as a result of side effects of one of the new drugs, the inventors of the drug try to make things right.

10. After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid - After reading (and loving) Maybe In Another Life, I need to read some of her other works.


What books have you added to your TBR lately? Go on, give me even more books to add to my TBR list??

    1. Ria, The Selection series wasn't my favorite, but it is still good. I think Keira Cass is a great writer. And I am loving that her newest one is a stand alone fantasy.

  8. The Unexpected Everything and The Siren have such nice covers. Unexpected just looks so summery. :) And Crooked looks interesting too.

    1. Thanks Greg! I absolutely adore the cover of The Siren! It is amazing. And yeah, The Unexpected Everything does have a very summery cover. Maybe that will make up for the cold? :)

  14. I keep thinking my TBR is out of control because I keep adding to it like crazy--then I remind myself that I'm getting ready for retirement. :-) I'll never run out of books!

    1. Captivated Reader, oh you must read Denton Little's Deathdate. It was so good!

      Delete
  16. Okay a lot of these are on my TBR too! Like Amy and Roger's Epic Detour, and PS I Still Love You. But then again, I've always been one to push away the contemporaries until I'm really bored hehe. I HAVE read The Unexpected Everything though, and it's freaking superb. I really can't wait for you to pick that one up.

    1. Alia, oh I am SO GLAD to hear that you loved The Unexpected Everything!! I absolutely adore Morgan Matson and I had not heard any reviews on this one (yet). I should have known that she would not disappoint me. :)

  17. I want Denton. I want it NOW. Not in 2017 or whenever the publishers decide to give it to me. NOW. I will go buy ALL the copies of the first book if it can push the second one along :( (In reality, I think it's just plain shitty for the author, and completely unfair, but no one asked me.) I liked PSISLY, though not as much as TATBILB, so I am curious as to your thoughts, so read it! ;) And I really want to read Amy and Roger and The Unexpected Everything too! Fabulous choices!!

    1. Shannon, it makes me so mad that I have no clue when the Denton Little's Deathdate sequel will be released. Yes, I need it NOW!!! According to Goodreads, it was going to be released this year. But who knows?? So frustrating!!

  18. It's interesting, I've loved Morgan Matson's books EXCEPT for Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. Still totally psyched for The Unexpected Everything, though - it looks amazing :)

    1. Loony Literate, I am so sorry that you didn't enjoy Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. That is the only Morgan Matson book I have not read yet (besides her newest of course). Hopefully, I will enjoy it. I am sure her newest book will be amazing though!
