If there’s one topic that book bloggers never tire of discussing it’s the ever-increasing TBR lists that we have. (For those of you who aren’t up on your bookish lingo, TBR stands for “to be read.”) Mine has been steadily increasing each year, no matter how hard I try to keep it under control. There are just too many amazing books out there and not enough time to read them all! *sad face* It feels like every time I finish a book I end up adding at least 3 more to my list.
The struggle is real.
It’s fine. I just accept it for what it is. I mean, what’s the alternative? To stop adding books to the list? To stop reading altogether? Pfffft.
Check out some of the books on my TBR list that are coming out soon that I can’t wait to read:
Vengeful (Villains #2) by V.E. Scwab – I already pre-ordered my copy!
Sydney once had Serena—beloved sister, betrayed enemy, powerful ally. But now she is alone, except for her thrice-dead dog, Dol, and then there’s Victor, who thinks Sydney doesn’t know about his most recent act of vengeance.
Victor himself is under the radar these days—being buried and re-animated can strike concern even if one has superhuman powers. But despite his own worries, his anger remains. And Eli Ever still has yet to pay for the evil he has done.
Bloody Rose by Nicholas Earnes – Okay, so technically this one came out last week. I haven’t gotten it yet though, so I’m still allowed to put it on the list.
Tam Hashford is tired of working at her local pub, slinging drinks for world-famous mercenaries and listening to the bards sing of adventure and glory in the world beyond her sleepy hometown.
When the biggest mercenary band of all rolls into town, led by the infamous Bloody Rose, Tam jumps at the chance to sign on as their bard. It’s adventure she wants – and adventure she gets as the crew embark on a quest that will end in one of two ways: glory or death.
It’s time to take a walk on the wyld side.
Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri
The Amrithi are outcasts; nomads descended of desert spirits, they are coveted and persecuted throughout the Empire for the power in their blood. Mehr is the illegitimate daughter of an imperial governor and an exiled Amrithi mother she can barely remember, but whose face and magic she has inherited.
When Mehr’s power comes to the attention of the Emperor’s most feared mystics, she must use every ounce of will, subtlety, and power she possesses to resist their cruel agenda.
Should she fail, the gods themselves may awaken seeking vengeance…
