Across all of your favorite bookish blogs, this month’s Top Five Wednesday posts are going to be a different in that we’re all going retro! Welcome to Top Five Wednesday Rewind Month. This month I’ll be using T5W posts from the past, i.e. before I joined the T5W family back in May 2017.
My first rewind is going back to July 2016, where one of the month’s topics was “Most Recent Additions to Your Wishlist.” Blame it on finals stress and not wanting to do anything else but read, but my TBR went from about 65 to 90 books real quick at the end of April. Today I’ll be talking about my 5 most recent additions to my TBR.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor- One of my best friends IRL loves YA fantasy and when she found out that I haven’t read Strange the Dreamer yet, she made me add it to my TBR immediately. I think I’m going to pick this one up later this summer or in the fall closer to the release of Muse of Nightmares.
Ship It by Britta Lundin- Blame Kristin of Super Space Chick’s Booktube video about Book Expo & Book Con on this TBR addition! I love books that incorporate fandom, so Ship It sounds right up my alley. Britta Laudin is also a writer on Riverdale, so that makes me even more interested.
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo- I’ve seen a ton of positive hype around To Kill a Kingdom since its March release, and this is another one that my best friend has thankfully pushed on to my TBR. I’ll take any book with The Little Mermaid vibes! I also really enjoy reading standalone fantasies every once and a while.
Not the Girls You’re Looking For by Aminah Mae Safi – I saw a few bloggers haul this one from the LA Festival of Books. I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews for this diverse read that features feminism and female friendship.
Burn for Burn by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han- Being a huge Jenny Han fan, I figured that it’s time to check out her Burn for Burn trilogy with Siobhan Vivian. I also adored Siobhan Vivian’s The Last Boy and Girl in the World two summers ago and Stay Sweet is on my summer TBR. I plan on borrowing the trilogy from my library, but I actually found Burn for Burn among the library’s used books for sale! I think I also saw Fire for Fire for sale, so hopefully Ashes to Ashes will pop up too.
