Current TBR Pile #32

by - 4:20 PM

Hello and welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the recurring post segment where I hide how stressed I am about my TBR by posting the latest books I've added to it alongside try-hard witty commentary :)

We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

I'm usually not a horror person?? And I don't like Shirley Jackson?? But Romi's review convinced me to read this book. And it's only 150 pages, so if I hate it, at least my death will be short.

The Hollow Boy by Jonathan Stroud

I did that thing where I read the first book in a series and then put off reading the second book for ages. And then I finally did, a couple months ago. AND THAT CLIFFHANGER?? I HAVE TO GET THE THIRD BOOK, PRONTO.

Melting Stones by Tamora Pierce

I am so . . . close . . . to finishing all the Emelan books . . . I can taste success on the very tip of my tongue . . .

The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie

I've been really struggling with finding good fantasy this year. I think it's partially because I'm shifting from a YA to adult focus when it comes to the kind of lit I like, and I don't know too much about adult fantasy beyond the super popular authors who dominate the genre, like George R.R. Martin and Patrick Rothfuss. (Plus my fave, Terry Pratchett.) So I found this, thought it would be worth a shot, and chucked it on the TBR. We'll see how it goes. I know it's gotten a lot of subpar reviews, but I love the blurb + concept.

Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

SPEAKING OF FANTASY AHHHH. I finally read The Lies of Locke Lamora, and I'm surprised by how much I liked it. I just have to know of the continuing adventures of Locke and Jean (though I'm mainly reading this book so I can get to The Republic of Thieves, tbh. bc Sabetha!!).

An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason by Virginia Boecker

Look, I know I just said I'm stepping away from YA. But this particular YA has Shakespeare. So.

Let's chat! Have you read or do you want to read any of these books? What are the latest additions to your TBR? Comment below, and have a fabulous day :)

  1. I've been meaning to read The Lies of Locke Lamora. It's been sitting on my shelf for two or three years now. And I've read nothing but amazing things about it.
