Current TBR Pile #18


The Sign by Raymond Khoury


I picked this up at a little free library recently, and I'm really excited to dive in! It looks kind of like The Da Vinci Code, which I really enjoyed.

The Thief Who Pulled on Trouble's Braids by Michael McClung


OKAY, CAN WE ALL TAKE A MOMENT TO COLLECTIVELY SWOON ABOUT THAT COVER? And the title, ahhhh. I hope to get to this one pretty soon; I'll probably download it after I finish The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valante.

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent


I LOVE BOOKS WRITTEN IN THIS STYLE. (Think When the Moon Was Ours and The Walls Around Us) Plus, Burial Rites takes place in Iceland. I love that country and have never read a book set there.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber


I originally wasn't going to read this as the concept doesn't really interest me. However, the writing looks pretty compelling, and I received a copy for my birthday. Might as well give it a shot!

The Kite Runner by Khaled Housseini


This is another book that looks both beautiful and breathtaking. My best friend read it and absolutely loved it, so on my TBR it goes!

An Empire on the Edge by Nick Bunker


I read a lot of Revolutionary War books, but I've never read one written by a British author before. It'll be quite interesting to see the Revolution from a Brit's point of view!

Let's chat! Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What's on the top of your current TBR? Comment below, and have an amazing day. <3

Namarië,

    1. I hope so! I don't have really high expectations, but it looks like it'll be a fun read.

  2. Ooo, I really want to read Caraval and Burial Rites!! I haven't heard of any of the other ones... but now I have and I guess I should consider reading them as well! As of now, Bone Gap, the Giver, and The Book Thief are probably the top three on my TBR pile XD I'm SO excited to read Bone Gap!! *eeeep*

  3. Carnaval and The Kite Runner are two books that I really want to read, as well! I'm kind of iffy about the former, but like you, a ton of my friends loved the Kite Runner.

    1. They also had their hearts broken, so I don't know how well that bodes for my emotional state. XD

  4. I've heard mixed reviews about Caraval - don't really know if i'll pick it up, but I guess time will tell.

    THE KITE RUNNER IS AWESOME READ IT! My mother recommended it to me (because my mother knows the best books) ad I fell in love with it.

    1. That's me with so many books, honestly. Probably just as much as are on my actual TBR XD

      AHHHHH YES I MUST. I actually own a copy, so I'll probably get to it sooner rather than later.

    1. Yes!! I wasn't a huge fan of the first book, but I'm in love with the second. Do you know how much the fourth ties in with the rest of the series? I'm wondering whether or not I can or should skip it.

  6. I loved Caraval, but I seem to be in the minority who enjoyed it sadly. It's predictable and not unlike so many fantasy reads but it was enchanting and the writing is really lovely, looking forward to seeing your thoughts on that one especially <3
