We’ve found that breaking down our TBRs can be something that inspires us to pick up hidden or briefly forgotten reads. ‘Five on my TBR’ is something that we have done a few times on bookstagram but it originated with someone else, though, eek, we’ve no idea who (if you’re the creator of this, please let us know and we will credit you!).
We are starting off the new year with the hope that we will include updates in this TBR series more often than we might have done last year. But whether we do or not (who can say!), here we are showing what’s risen to the top of our TBRs and/or what has us buzzed.
Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo
The Blood Heir by Amelie Wen Zhao
Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco
XOXO by Axie Oh
Midnight in Everwood by M.A. Kuzniar
I finally mastered King of Scars so now it’s time for Rule of Wolves. I am haunted on my netgalley shelf by The Blood Heir, so I’m pushing myself on that. The other three are owned books I keep looking at, feel enthusiatic about but don’t pick up. Do we share any excitables?
Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano
Save of the Game by Avon Gale
Father Complex by Gregory Ashe
Seven Devils by Laura Lam & Elizabeth May
Something Wilder by Christina Lauren
This TBR is a pile of series — except the last. Why, why am I doing this to myself? Because I am a binge queen! I will naturally have to follow up each of these instalments with the subsequent ones and finish the series. Gulp. As for the reasons? The Cosimano because it’s everywhere and I’m curious about the hype! The Gale because it’s a long-overdue series to finish; I had picked up an ARC of the final book, gone back to read book one, and then.. got stalled, somehow. The Ashe because I’ve been hoarding each release of this spin-off (of a spin-off) waiting until the series finished. The Lam and May because I’ve put it on this TBR series twice now and I’m overdue. And, finally, the CLo because it’s a CLo and I’m curious about this different take on their usual fare.
Tell us the top five books on your TBR! Do any of ours make your lists?
