Sort of inspired by Jamie’s “new to the queue” posts and the previous TTT also inspired by those posts, I wanted to share some of the more recent additions to my TBR. All of these books have already been released and there seems to be a good mix of adult and YA fiction here!
The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan • Of course any book involving books is going to make it onto my TBR. An ex-librarian moves to a small town and creates a bookmobile to match the people in the town with their soon-to-be-favorite books. Sounds so charming!
The Book that Matters Most by Ann Hood • Yet another book about books. I couldn’t resist the synopsis when I saw it. The book alternates between a woman who joins a book club and her daughter that is in Paris, living in a bad relationship. I’m not sure what will happen plot-wise but it sounds really interesting!
Life After Coffee by Virginia Franken • I love coffee almost as much as I love books, so this was another no-brainer. It seems like an interesting story about a woman who is fired from her job in the coffee business and has to “learn” how to be a mother again. Her ex comes back into the picture with a job offer and I’m sure a love triangle ensues.
The Ballroom by Anna Hope • I wanted to add this book to my TBR to push out of my comfort zone again. I loved the last historical fiction book I read about an asylum, so I thought I’d give this a try.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman • I saw Brittany listening to this one the other day and wanted to check it out. This part of the synopsis seriously has me written all over it: “a very secretive and exclusive college of magic in upstate New York. There he indulges in joys of college-friendship, love, sex, and booze- and receives a rigorous education in modern sorcery.” Magical boarding school?! HELLO!
Maid of Secrets by Jennifer McGowan • I don’t know what motivated me to put this on my TBR. Maybe someone recommended it when I was looking for historical fiction recommendations? Regardless, it sounds really interesting and like the kind of historical fiction I want to get into!
Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan • I’m shocked this wasn’t added to my TBR sooner! I love Saga so far and definitely want to check out this series as well. “In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smash-hit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.” YES!
Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia • I’ve seen a lot of weird, meh, or bad reviews about this one. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get around to reading it even though the synopsis appeals to me. An overachiever decides to have a social life now that she has a book to write and literary agent to impress. We’ll see if I ever read it.
Love, Football, and Other Contact Sports by Alden R. Carter • I just requested this from the library, based on a recommendation from Marg (er, Mary, for most people). It’s an anthology of stories where all people and short stories are connected in some way to the school’s football team. I mean, stories about football? Come on. Of course I’m going to read this.
