Top Ten Tuesday | Backlist Books I Want to Read

For anyone unfamiliar with Top 10 Tuesday, it’s a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and The Bookish and is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. To see more posts on this very topic, please go here.

November 6: Backlist Books I Want to Read

Here are the backlist books that I wanted to read so badly. The first six came from the post that I did a while back and I need to read these so I can do the updated post. The last four books are the books that I am looking forward to reading and still haven’t. I know that I am repeating myself – I am hoping though, I’ll find new books to replace them soon so I can finish reading them and enjoy them and finally give them reviews that they deserve. 

The City of Brass // S.A. Chakraborty
The Kingdom of Cooper is coming up soon and I want to read this before that one. I just know that I will fall in love with this book and why am I not reading this? I do not know. Maybe I am scared that I would end up being wrong? I just need to shake that off and READ!

Update: I’m currently buddy-reading this with Aimal from Bookshelves & Paperbacks. So excited!

Warcross // Marie Lu
Now with Wildcard out, I am looking forward to reading this book. People have been commenting on how much they love the world building. 

The Hate U Give // Angie Thomas
This book has been on my list various times, and hopefully, soon I am able to finish this book. I have heard nothing but wonderful things. I love Angie’s pictures/stories on her Instagram account and am looking forward to On the Come Up.

When the Moon Was Ours // Anna-Marie McLemore
I have not finished Wild Beauty but from what I see with her writing, I just knew that I am going to love this book. I recently got a physical copy of this book via BookOutlet and I am thrilled. 

Crooked Kingdom // Leigh Barudgo
Now with the paperback edition for both Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, I can annotate one of my favorite books (Six of Crows) and enjoy the read. I tend to remember things easier if I read books back to back. I typically don’t like to reread but why not when you are in love with a book. 

The Fifth Season // N.K. Jemisin
With N.K. winning the Hugo Award for The Stone Sky earlier this summer; I truly want to read the trilogy and see if I enjoy them. I have a Kindle edition of this book and I couldn’t get into it. Maybe this would be better if I have a physical copy. What do you think?

Vicious // V.E. Schwab
I am currently reading this novel and I am loving it. Can’t wait for me to read Vengeful. I love the idea of reading Villian vs Villian. It’s different and I am enjoying this.

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue // Mackenzi Lee
I know. I haven’t read this. I have heard that this book is so funny but can be serious whenever a serious topic has brought up. I want to read this so I can read The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy. If I ended up loving both books, I am hoping that Mackenzi will consider writing more in the world that she created. 

Want // Cindy Pon
I brought this via BookOutlet and cannot wait to jump into this world. I love the Ruse cover and cannot wait to get that book as well! 

We Are Okay // Nina LaCour
I know this seems random but I truly want to read this book. The synopsis sounds fantastic. I want to see how she’d write the story. Plus, the book itself is gorgeous.
