Physical TBR 10.8.18

So I recently got back from holiday and had a shedload of library books to pick up, which  created one heck of a stack on my bookshelf. I decided that I should let you guys know what my current pile looks like and that’s wha today’s post is going to be all about.

My Current Physical TBR:


1. Floored by various authors

Technically this is a bit of a false inclusion, as I’ve just finished Floored this morning and absolutely loved it. It was funny, moving and a perfect distraction for me today.

2 and 3. Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes? and How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne

One of my favourite YA authors has branched out into adult fiction for the first time, so obviously I had to pick it up. Also, I loved Am I Normal Yet? which dealt with mental health issues in such a brilliant way, so when I saw that she was turning to this topic, it was an instant pre-order.

4. To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Sirens, pirates and a dark re-telling of The Little Mermaid. Essentially this just sounded perfect for me and I reserved it from my local library system. I can’t wait to delve into the watery world of The Sea Queen and Lira.

5. The Truth About Lies by Tracy Darnton

I participated in the #SundayYA chat for this book and the author was really engaging. The boo sounded fantastic and I immediately reserved it after the chat had finished. Thrillers are right up my street, especially as autumn begins to arrive.

6. All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfoth

Continuing the mystery/thriller theme is a book with one of the best use of sprayed pages I’ve ever seen (photo below). Again, I love mysteries set in boarding schools and this sounds like a mix of Pretty Little Liars and People Like Us.

7. How To Be Famous by Caitlin Moran

This is the sequel to How To Build A Girl, which was a lovely Christmas present from my family for me. I found that really funny and relatable, so I’ve got high hopes for How To Be Famous.

8. A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood

Firstly, that book spine is gorgeous. Secondly, a mystery set in the 1920s sounds absolutely perfect for me. It also comes highly recommended by my book club friends, whose opinions are usually spot on (we’re still split about Floored though).

These are books that I’ve been looking forward to reading for a long time, so I really can’t decide which one to read first. I created a Twitter poll here to try and decide the order in which I should read them, which I could do with some help on!

Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned above and how were they? If not, are they on your TBR?
