Current TBR Pile #8


All I'm saying is that y'all need to stop being so good at recommending books.

The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud


Jonathan Stroud wrote one of my favorite all-time series, the Bartimaeus books. And so when I discovered this other series of his, Lockwood & Co., I of course must try it out.

The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch


I wanted to read this as a kid but never got around to it. Recently, I discovered it again, and now it's back on the TBR pile!

The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic


Adi's lovely review of this completely sold me. I SHIP ALL THE THINGS ALREADY. Plus, diversity!! And supporting self-publishing!! And diversity!!

We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson


OKAY. OKAY. OKAY. I GIVE IN.

This book has been meandering around in my subconscious since Adi posted her amazing review back in April. It's been popping up and poking me and saying, "Hey, maybe you should read me, maybe you should read me, maybe you should read me." WELL, BOOK, YOU WIN. I finally gave in and read a preview on Goodreads and holy freaking crap, this book looks amazing.

(Congratulations, Adi, you are now officially responsible for a solid half of my TBR pile. XD)

Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands


SO IN CASE ANYBODY WAS UNAWARE, THE BLACKTHORN KEY WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS SO FAR THIS YEAR. And now there's another one out?? Sign me the hell up.

Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice


ANOTHER SERIES CONTINUATION TO CRY OVER. And this is coming out wayyyy sooner than I thought it would, which is an awesome surprise. (And that cover though. RIP me.)

Namarië,

    THE FOXHOLE COURT IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER. tbh the series took the spot as my all time favorite. The character development just makes my little heart scream, and Neil Josten is my tiny son. at the beginning you're definitely like wtf even is this, but it's so addictive and dark and gAH I LOVE IT.
    We Are the Ants still stands as one of the few books that has caused me actual tears. It changed my perspective on things so much, and I have so much love for all of Shaun's writing.
    Another fantastic post, Ellie!
    (And thank you for the links. ^-^)

  8. I've been wanting to read We Are the Ants for forever- it is sitting on the shelf in my school library taunting me every time I walk past it! I need to read it (but my TBR is never endinggggg). I read The Name of This Book is Secret a long time ago and I enjoyed it- it's a fun read. I can't wait to hear the reviews!

  10. I haven't read most of these, except for We Are the Ants. It's such a great and meaningful book.
    As for the rest of them, I guess I have even more books to add to my ginormous TBR that's probably going to end up collapsing on me and giving me a serious medical problem, thank you for that :-)

  11. YES I have read We Are The Ants and absolutely loved it, although I thought it was going to be more sci-fi, turned out it wasn't and I was perfectly fine with that (and I don't even read that much contemporary).

    Also please tell me how the Foxhole Court goes! I've heard a lot about it as well but haven't gotten it yet!

    1. Same! I usually only read contemporary if the premise really stands out to me.

      I will!
