Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week, mine has been relatively quiet since getting back from Scotland on Friday, but I’m going to be heading off to Greece with my friends with my friends next week which I’m really excited for! Only 6 days to go! Anyway, I’m back this week with another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of the lovely ladies over at The Broke and Bookish. This week’s topic is about my Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added to My TBR In X Genre, so naturally I’ve chosen YA Fantasy to fill the gap since that’s what I mostly add to my TBR! Most of these will actually be from last week’s TTT lists since there were so many fab YA fantasy new releases on people’s lists! So here we go, the Top Ten YA Fantasies I Added To My TBR recently (in no particular order):
- An Enchantment of Ravens-Margaret Rogerson-Added 30th May
Reading Sarah J Maas over the last few years has given me a taste for Fae, but honestly these Fae sound far more like my cup of tea, dark and sinister rather than sexy! It doesn’t release till September but I will definitely be getting it once it does.
2. The Glass Spare-Lauren DeStefano-Added 30th May
Granted this does sound like a rather cliche fantasy, princess finds out she has special powers, there’s a big war on, she’s banished from the kingdom, but if it’s not broke……
This one releases in October.
3. Beasts Made of Night-Tochi Onyebuchi-Added 30th May
This one sounds so original, sin eaters can call forth sins from sinners called sin beasts but killing them causes the sin eater to have a tattoo of the beast and accept the guilt for the sin. Sounds cool right? Also it’s apparently Nigerian inspired, which is awesome!
This is another October release.
4. Girls Made of Snow and Glass-Melissa Bashardoust-Added 30th May
A feminist retelling of Snow White? Count me sold! It sounds like a much darker, more interesting version of Snow White and I can’t wait to see how the author twists the original fairytale. This one releases in September.
5. Daughter of The Siren Queen-Tricia Levenseller-Added 30th May
I added this one straight after reading the first book as it was such a fun read and I can’t wait to catch up with Alosa and Riden and hopefully see more of the sirens, since that’s what the title indicates! Sadly this doesn’t release until February next year.
6. Hunted-Megan Spooner-Added 10th March
Beauty and The Beast is one of my favourite fairytales, so I’m always on the lookout for good retellings of it. I’ve heard some really great things about this one, but I haven’t managed to pick up a copy of it for myself yet!
7. Labyrinth Lost-Zoraida Cordova-Added 24th February
I’ve never read a Latinx inspired fantasy (yes I know, I know) and I love the idea behind this one, a witch summoning the spirits of her dead relatives and it all going wrong? Sounds awesome!
8. The Glass Sentence-SE Grove-Added 15th February
This one is all about maps and adventuring and pirates and it just sounds like so much fun!
9. The Unbound-Victoria Schwab-Added 11th February
It might seem strange that I added this before I had even read the first one (which I’m currently reading) but I already had the first one on my TBR when I bought the pair of them together. I’ve been really enjoying The Archived and I’m sure The Unbound will be just as good.
10. The Crown’s Fate-Evelyn Skye-Added 9th February
I added this one after finishing The Crown’s Game. I liked the first one, didn’t love it, but the ending left off at a very exciting place, so I look forward to seeing what Vika, Nikolai and Pasha get up to next.
I’ll stick to just ten this week before I end up going all the way back to books I added in January! What books have you added recently to your TBR? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s list is a father’s day related freebie, so you’ll have to see what topic I choose then (I’m going to have to be organised and actually schedule this post as I’ll be in Greece!). I don’t know if I’ll have any more posts for you this week as I’ll be busy get ready for Greece, but stay tuned just in case!
