Top 10 Tuesday: 10 Latest Books in my TBR List


Top 10 books I've added recently to my TBR list.

Most of these books are on my 2016 TBR list as this year my list is full :P

1. Shadow Scale (Seraphina #2)

Rachel Hartman
I read Seraphina #1 last year and though I was not impressed, it was very well written. This is one of those few books I give second chances to. It is a high fantasy novel borderline YA fantasy. So I had very mix up feelings about it. I am hoping to find more character development in this book and more conflict.

2. Jackaby (Jackaby #1)

William Ritter
"Doctor Who meets Sherlock in William Ritter’s debut novel, which features a detective of the paranormal as seen through the eyes of his adventurous and intelligent assistant in a tale brimming with cheeky humor and a dose of the macabre." Marketing department has done its job. I'm sold.

3. Mosquitoland

David Arnold
I am a fan of contemporary coming of age novels. I found this novel through a book tour post (sorry forgot where) and I had to add it to my list. Deals with mental illness and self discovery. Plus according to the reviews and high score, beautifully written. I am looking forward to this one very much. I've been missing such books ever since The Age of Miracles.

4. Dreamland

Robert L. Anderson
Dreams are one of my favorite things of existence. So it is only normal for me that whenever I see a book with a good score on dreams, I add it to my list. This book deals with dream-walking and something that goes wrong with it. I am hoping it is good after all. :)

5. The Wanderers

Kate Ormand
I forgot how I came upon this book. But again, it sounds amazing. The complexity of the plot drags me to it. Far more than just a circus, a whole different world revolves around it. I am not sure about it being told trough a 16 year old's eyes, with all the angst and hormones, but I am still very curious about the world constructed around it.

6. The rest of us just live here

Patrick Ness
Another book which I have high expectations for. End of the world, ordinary life, finding your way. It also reminds me of The Age of Miracles but then different. I have read great things about it and am really looking forward to reading it.

7. Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn #1)

Brandon Sanderson
Again, world construction and awesome characters. Or so I've heard. I have to at least try the first book and see how it fits me. :)
about the world constructed around it.

8. Red Queen (Red Queen #1)

Victoria Aveyard
This is a book I am actually afraid of. I am not sure if to take it as over-hyped or just plain awesome. Ever since Divergent's hype, I am weary of dystopian fiction. Specially if the main character is, again, a teenage girl with all the angst and hormones... I am getting bored of those stories. But at the same time the world building seems attractive enough for me to give it a chance.bout the world constructed around it.

9. The Girl with all the Gifts

M.R. Carey
A post-apolitical story about a mysterious girl. I am hoping she is not vampire or zombie...
"Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh."

10. Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2)

Diana Gabaldon
I can't stop thinking about Outlander... I can't. Though it is not what I typically read, I can't stop thinking about it! Why? No idea. Must be that good. So just now, as I write this, I added it to my list.
