Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Fantasy/Sci-Fi Additions

The TBR pile. It is an exciting, yet daunting thing. Exciting because ALL THE BOOKS *happy dance while hugging all the books*. Daunting because I will probably never get to all of them, even if I joined the Dauntless faction and did some serious training in the art of reading.

However, the exciting part wins over the daunting part, because to this day I still add books to the stack(s).

Today for Top Ten Tuesday, we’re to post the Top Ten Books we’ve recently added in (X) genre to our To Be Read pile. I have chosen Fantasy/Sci-Fi:


“Quests for Glory” by Soman Chainani— While I had some issues with the original trilogy, it still stole my heart enough that I would not have mind there being more to this series. Imagine my surprise when I found there is a new book releasing this fall! *wishes it were already out* #teamhortandsophie


“Lady of Dreams” by W.R. Gingell— Sounds kind of like a Korean Drama, and I may or may not be planning to buy this. Released today, by the way.


“Evageline” by Erica Laurie— Another one that looks like a K-Drama (Yes, I love books that are like Korean Dramas, Mention Korean Dramas, etc.). It has such a cute cover. πŸ˜€


“The Star-Touched Queen” by Roshani Chokshi— I bought this at Barnes and Noble because 1. Pretty Cover. 2. The writing. What little I read was BEAUTIFUL.


“Because You Love To Hate Me” by Various Authors— Why this? Because I Love Β the Writings of Two of the Authors. *cough* Marissa Meyer and Soman Chainani *cough*


“Defy The Stars” by Claudia Gray— While part of me is a little wibbly wobbly on reading this book, there is a part of me that want to give it a try because that cover.


“The Crown’s Game” by Evelyn Skye— Just sounds like an interesting book. (<—Such an original reason to read. #not)


“The Jane Austen Project” by Kathleen A. Flynn— This is a time-travel book where the characters try to save Jane Austen’s life. If only this could really happen.


“Forest of a Thousand Lanterns” by Julie C. Dao— Yes, this was on my last TTT list, but *Gollum Voice* I REALLY WANTS TO READS ITS.


“Diving Under” by Ginna Moran— A romance with mermaids? Yes, please. #pleasehurryandrelease


Have any opinions on the above books? What are some books you have recently added to your TBR? (Unless you are a strange creature who has not done that in awhile.)

    1. Thanks for commenting and letting me know your thoughts! I love books with amazing characters and action. Definitely my kind of thing, so now you’re making me want to read it even more. πŸ˜€

  1. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns and The Jane Austen Project both sound so good. I definitely need to add them to my TBR. Also, while this is not a Sci-fi or fantasy book, have you heard of I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo. The main character watches K Drama’s and uses their guidance to find love. It sounds really cute!

    1. Yes, they certainly sound good. πŸ˜€
      I have heard of this book. My best friend—who introduced me to K-Dramas—mentioned it a few months ago and I (impatiently) waited for its release. I found it at Barnes and Noble the week before last, and was so happy because it was a few days before its release. I hope I like it. πŸ™‚

    1. Yay for another “The Crwon’s Game” recommendation. Hope that you get a copy of “The Star-Touched Queen” soon! Also that we can both get to read it soon, because it looks so awesome.

    1. Good to know! I only read a few lines of “The Star-Touched Queen” and was entranced. SO looking forward to it, “Because You Love to Hate Me,” and “Forest of a Thousand Lanterns.” So many awesome reads. *hugs the books*

    1. Glad to know that. It looks good, especially since I’m getting into Russian fantasy after reading “The Winner’s” trilogy by Marie Rutoski.

    1. I know! I saw it on Goodreads one day and, obviously, added it to my TBR. Sounds so good. πŸ˜€
      I agree that the cover for “Defy The Stars” is pretty. I almost bought it yesterday, but managed to hold off for a bit. Next time I see it may have a different conclusion, however.
      Thank you. πŸ™‚

  2. Many of these are already on my TBR list, but you’ve also added a couple more! I’ll definitely be looking into “Lady of dreams”!
