Top Ten Tuesday, Young Adult

Top Ten Tuesday [#5]

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie! It has been absolutely ages since I did a TTT post.

If you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, it’s a weekly feature which was started by the amazing ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish!

This week, the theme is… Top Ten Books You’ve Added to Your TBR Pile Lately!

Considering the fact that I haven’t been reading much lately due to the start of my third year in university, I have a few booksies that I recently got that I’m really excited to read them!


More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

This book broke so many of my friends and since it’s a book that has a homosexual MC, I’m totally up for it! One of the reasons why I haven’t picked it up immediately was because it’s a really sad book and I don’t think I’m in the mood for something sad. Soon, I hope.

Pushing Perfect by Michelle Falkoff

From the blurb, this sounds like something that I might like so here’s hoping that I would enjoy it!

A Shadow of Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Magic and sorcery in Victorian London? Done. I’m sold. When can I read this?

November 9 by Colleen Hoover

Probably one of the most talked about books in 2015, I think. Well, as far as I know, it was huge. Many of my friends loved it and I was lucky enough to stumble upon a copy at a quarter of its actual price.


A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

Sweet baby Jesus and the baby pandas. I went to a book sale where everything was RM5 (about $1.20) and I nearly died when I found A Darker Shade of Magic. In hardback. ‘Nuff said.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

A badass heroine who attends a school of assassins? Dude, I am getting seriously excited for this one. If only I had the time to binge read this baby because it is a Hulk of a book.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Everyone has been telling me to read Illuminae because “it’s so fucking good” and “you won’t regret reading it” and “Ezra is so fucking cheeky”. People, chill. It’s on my TBR pile. It’s sitting next to me. I’ll only read it when I have Gemina. OKAY?

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

If this isn’t cover love, I don’t know what this is. I read the sneak peek on Amazon and I nearly died. Victoria Schwab’s writing reads so effortlessly and I really need to get around to reading This Savage Song because I am constantly thinking about it. Bumping this baby up my TBR pile!

Notable mention:


A Million Worlds with You by Claudia Gray

I loved the first two books in the Firebird series and I was a bit worried that the final book wouldn’t bring a deserving ending to the trilogy, but it did!

So, bookish friends of mine. What have you recently added to your TBR pile?

  1. All of these books are also on my TBR 😀
    It’s still not Tuesday where I live so I won’t be posting mine anytime soon.
    Great list! I hope you get a LOT of time to read all of this. ❤

  2. Great picks for this week Kevin. Some of these are on my to-read list as well but I’ve heard great things about them so I can’t wait to get started.
    Also the second four you picked (A Darker Shade of Magic, Nevernight, Illuminae and This Savage Song) are all all-time favourites of mine so I hope you love them as much as I did! :)

  3. More Happy Than Not! That book cover is gorgeous, I have it on my TBR just as well, but…I’m just like you for now, I don’t know if I’m in the mood for something so sad and heartbreaking. But I can’t wait to read it, and can’t wait to know if you liked it :)

      1. If we were closer, I’d probably shove this book to your place every chance I’d get. Haha


  4. Great list! Most of these are on my TBR too. I’ve read Illuminae and November 9 and they are absolutely amazing! I kinda hope you’d be able to read November 9 before the actual date cause of the story significance but oh well. haha.

  5. Such a great list! Most of these are either on my TBR as well or I’ve read and loved them :) More Happy Than Not was soo good, but also really sad so I understand waiting until you’re in the right mood to read it. And I must also get to Illuminae someday soon, glad to know I’m not the only one who hasn’t read it yet :)

  6. So many epic books in this list. I found it easier to buddy read More Happy Than Not because that way I had someone I could vent all my feels to. It’s definitely an emotional book but it’s one worth reading.
    Nevernight and A Darker Shade of Magic are among my favourite fantasy novels. The character complexities and the world building is on point in both books.
