Let’s play another round of “My TBR is Definitely Shaming Me Right Now,” shall we?
All the books I haven’t read yet are glaring at me from my shelves demanding to know why they’re not first on the list. Most of them are also demanding to know why they’re not on this list. In the interest of fairness/blaming someone else, we’ll just point the finger at Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads for focusing today’s Top 5 Tuesday on TBRs. Obviously, it’s her fault we’re having this conversation. 😂
All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace (All the Stars and Teeth #1)
Pirates and mermaids and magic and what have you? Basically, it sounds like All the Stars and Teeth was absolutely made for me, and I’m kicking myself for not having picked it up yet! Plus, it’s got such a stunning cover. I think I need to take more bookstagram pictures with it.
A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown (A Song of Wraiths and Ruin #1)
A Song of Wraiths and Ruin effectively SOLD OUT when it released, and even though I haven’t read it just yet, I can’t help but feel so much joy that it did! More than that, I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews, and now that I have my hands on a copy, it’s migrating towards the very top of my list.
The Crow Rider by Kalyn M. Josephson (The Storm Crow #2)
Last year, The Storm Crow was one of my favorite reads. It deals with depression in a way that feels at once familiar and remarkably sensitive, which makes my heart grow three sizes. I don’t know that I’ve really seen many fantasy books that tackle depression so openly, and it means a lot to see it.
Also, there are big elemental crows. YeeCAW, pardners! 🤠
The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen (The Merciful Crow #2)
Why why WHY do I not have this book on my physical shelves? I honestly don’t know what happened here, because The Merciful Crow was one of my top reads of 2019, and yet I still haven’t read The Faithless Hawk. Maybe I’m just afraid of how it’s going to end? I mean, I’m sure it’ll be a riot and a work of genius, but am I emotionally ready?
Probably not. Might as well jump in anyway!
Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I actually just received this as a gift from my best friend, and I’m putting it off until I have a nice sunny day to read it!
Mostly because I am a chicken, and somehow, I get the sneaking suspicion that this will scare the ever-loving #*$% out of me if I read it after dark. Have mercy on me, will you? Horror is a delightful genre, and I am but a big scaredy-cat-crybaby. 😭
So, which five titles crown the list of books you haven’t read yet? Do we share any contenders for the top spots? Let’s chat!
