Top Ten Tuesday (160)

is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Tuesday's theme is...

For this week's Top Ten Tuesday I basically just went through the last ten pages of my TBR on Goodreads and picked ten(ish) books I really want to read. I focused (for the most part) only on books with covers and that I haven't already mentioned in other anticipatory lists. I also did a separate section for Middle Grade novels because they look fantastic!

House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones: Toward the end of 2015 I became OBSESSED with Howl's Moving Castle, so read this I want to.

Never Missing, Never Found by Amanda Panitch: Amanda Panitch can fucking write, so.

Anything You Want by Geoff Herbach: This deals with teen pregnancy from the dad's point of view, so WANT.

Rescued by Eliot Schrefer: Loved Endangered and Threatened, and I'm super excited for this third installment and ORANGUTANS.

Kissing Max Holden by Katy Upperman: My friend's book is getting published so of course I'm excited for this!

Air Awakens by Elisa Kova: I was seeing this around on Instagram a lot so I had to add it to my TBR...and ask Santa for it.

The Creeper Man by Dawn Kurtagich: The US version is And the Trees Crept In, but I saw the UK version first and THAT COVER.

Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia: I think this is a novel about a girl writing a novel about her life, but her life isn't interesting enough so she makes it more interesting?

Before We Go Extinct by Karen Rivers: This deals with loss and a guy named Sharky and I love the cover, so...

The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia: A girl's dad is an undercover cop and she falls for a street racer, YES.

And now, five Middle Grade novels recently added to my TBR--or, to be more accurate, five fantastic covers.

Maybe a Fox by Kathi Appelt and Alison McGhee: At the exact moment Jules's sister vanishes by the river, a shadow fox is born in the shadow world.

The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith: This story is about a fox and his friend is a star and ahhh.

This Is Not a Werewolf Story by Sandra Evans: Loving that title, even though the shapeshifting boy apparently isn't a werewolf (or is he not a human?).

The Voyage to Magical North by Claire Fayers: MAGICIANS and PIRATES and MYTHS and SEA MONSTERS and the prediction that I will surely ship Brine and the "obnoxious apprentice, Peter."

The Wild Robot by Peter Brown: You can't look at that and not see The Iron Giant.

BONUS: S. Jae-Jones's Wintersong doesn't have a cover yet but it's a LABYRINTH RETELLING and now one of my most anticipated releases of the year.

What's new on your TBR?


  1. I need Dawn Kurtagich's next book! :)

  5. Never Missing Never Found totally caught my eye. So adding that. I have to check out some of these others. Great picks!

  6. I saw The Lovely Reckless the other day and meant to add it to my TBR. I'm not sure how I feel about the cover yet... Sometimes I see it and think I LOVE IT!! Others I just go meh... However, lots of books I will be looking into on your list :)
