Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – New to my TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is top ten – Most recent additions to my TBR list.

Contemporary January TBR List – Magical Edition

Hi, lovelies! This week we will be talking about magical realism and retellings! I don’t have too many of these two genres on my shelves waiting to be read so I thought I would combine them into one post. I love a good retelling (key word: good) but there are so many that are just not that great. So I find myself less interested in picking them up after reading a few duds. As for magical realism, I love it. Which is why there’s only a few on my TBR because I tend to pick them up pretty quickly.

Contemp Jan

Retellings

Catwoman By Sarah J. Maas
Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige
A Whole New World by Liz Braswell
Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell
As Old As Time by Liz Braswell

Magical Realism

An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
A Million Junes By Emily Henry

There are so many more for both of these lists, but for the purposes of the intention of Contemporary January, I’m only mentioning the books I own that are begging to be read from my bookshelves. Have you read any of these books? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Contemporary January TBR List – Realistic Fiction Edition

Hi, lovelies! I’m here with another TBR list for you all. I love sharing these because it lets you guys know what I will be/ have available to read within the near future, especially this month. I also love sharing these because I can get opinions from those that may have already read some of these books. Today I’m here to share with you the books on my TBR that fit into the genre of realistic fiction. These are mostly books are hard topics, things like death and grief, rape, gun violence, weigh, disabilities, drugs, and addiction. As tough as these topics can be, I love to read about them because they are so important. It’s so so necessary for these subjects to be talked about more often and with more openness. Without further delay, these are the books on my shelf that I’ve yet to read.

Hi, lovelies! Let’s talk TBR lists. I’m going to be talking about quite a few different TBR lists this month because I have a ridiculous amount of books on my physical TBR at home.
