Recently Added to my TBR
This week I am listing the ten books I most recently added to my TBR on Goodreads. These books may have been recommended to me by a friend, wooed me with their beautiful covers or captivated me with their blurbs.
- Vengence Road by Erin Bowman: I actually won this book recently, by participating in a Six of Crows read-a-long. I have heard good things about it from a lot of people and I have never read a western of any kind before.
- Stolen Songbird by Danielle Jensen: I recently heard about this book on Booktube and it sounds right up my alley.
- For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund: Jennifer, a friend of mine has great taste in books. We have read a lot of the same books and rated them similarly so when I saw she enjoyed this one I had to add it.
- The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi: A few people I follow on twitter are reading ARCs of this one right now and just RAVING about it. Interest peaked.
- Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton: I was reluctant to add this one and I’m not sure why, but some trusted sources said it was great.
Wooed by the Cover:
- To Hold The Bridge by Garth Nix: This was partly because of the cover but also before I love the author. Once I am finished the Abhorsen series I want to read this one.
- Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill: This one doesn’t come out for quite some time so it’s possible the cover will change. I would still read it though because the blurb has me really excited as well, but it was the cover that first caught my eye.
Captivated by the Blurb:
- Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie: This could also fall into the wooed by a cover category; however I originally added it because of the blurb. A girl who can feel what others feel? Sounds like a very heavy burden and I am intrigued to see how this one plays out.
- Below by Jason Chabot: This one is about two separate worlds, Above and Below and two lost people who traverse worlds to find their way home. I had a really good feeling about this one just from the blurb.
- Riders by Veronica Rossi: This one is about the four horsemen of the apocalypse? This one I feel like I will love it or hate it, can’t wait to find out which.
Okay, so that’s the ten! I’m curious to know, what catches your interest first? A good cover, recommendation/review or the blurb?
