My Current Physical TBR 16.7.18

So today, I’m going to share what my current TBR pile looks like and include a reason why I’ve picked up that books. Some of these are re-reads and again it’s a mix of library and owned books.

My Current TBR Pile:

TBR 16:7:18

  1. Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard

This is a re-read, as I love the story so much when I read this last year. Sara Barnard always seems to capture what teenage female friendships are really like and I’m always up for more books that focus on friendship, rather than romance. Her latest book, Goodbye, Perfect, is about what happens when friendships are slowly eroded and I reviewed it for Suffolk Libraries here.

2. Queens of Fennbirn by Kendare Blake

This is my last book in the Three Dark Crowns series to catch up on, before the next book comes out in September. It’s a shorter book, as it just contains two stories that were previously published as e-novellas.  However, I’m just looking forward to being able to explore more of this darkly beautiful world.

3. The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

This is another re-read for a competition and also because I just love this book so much. It’s such a clever and original concept that blooms into an amazing story. I just devoured the story the first time around and I’m sure that’ll be the case again this time.

4. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C Dao

This has been on my TBR for ages, so when an opportunity to get it came up, I grabbed it with both hands. It’s an East Asian, Evil Queen inspired fairy-tale re-telling, so what more could I want? I’ve always been fascinated by villains and want to understand their motivations and backstories, so this should be perfect for me.

5. In Your Light by Annalie Grainger

In Your Light has been on my radar for a while. It sounded dark and mysterious with a cult thrown in for good measure. Also it’s not been overly-hyped, as I think too much hype can often crush a book. To be perfectly honest, it just sounded like a captivating read and it just sparked my interest.

6. Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

It’s got dragons. What more do I need to say? It sounds like the better parts of fantasy where there is representation, clever world-building and intrigue. However, I am aware of some of the controversy surrounding this book, but I alway like to read the controversial books before I judge them (except if it’s just appalling).

That’s my current physical TBR, but what’s on your TBR right now? Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned and how were they? Let me know in the comments.
