Top Ten Tuesday: Fantasy Books Recently Added To My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jamie @ The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s theme is any books of any genre that you’ve added to your TBR recently! I decided to go with fantasy just because it’s my favorite genre so this is really going to be quite the mish mash of books since it went a little further back than I expected.

These are put in order by when I added them so the most recent starts at #10.

10.) Down Among The Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

I immediately added this after finishing “Every Heart A Doorway” because it was so amazing, I need more of this world…or really worlds!

You can read my full review of “Every Heart A Doorway” here.

9.) A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

Once again I added this sequel immediately after finishing “An Ember in the Ashes”! I was actually really blown away by how unique the book felt and how complex the characters were, so of course I need to read more about them ASAP!

8.) The Tiger’s Daughter by K. Arsenault Rivera

Honestly this book sounds straight up awesome! There’s two completely badass female warrior protagonists that were prophesied at birth to save theΒ  world from demons. How does that not sound like it’s amazing?

7.) The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova

I’ve heard a lot of ranting and raving about Elise Kova’s books and her newest one was on sale for $0.99 on Kindle so I bought a copy! I want to see what all the hype is about! Plus I like any story where a thief is the main character, especially in a fantasy setting.

6.) Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

This one definitely has a very unique sounding premise where the character, Taj, serves as a slayer of sin-beasts which are called forth from sinners by mages. Doesn’t that just sound cool? Never heard of a book with anything really similar to this so I had to add it to my TBR.

5.) Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana

First of all I was really drawn in by the cover, it’s gorgeous! Plus what book lover doesn’t want to read a book that has library in the title? This one is about two women whose lives are thrown into chaos and must seek out the fabled Library of All Things to try and reverse their fates. Sounds awesome!

4.) Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Honestly, I wasn’t going to ever add this one but since the series seems pretty hyped up and it is YA fantasy I figured maybe I could give it a try. It might be a little too cliched for me though.

3.) The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo

While I wasn’t the biggest fan of “Shadow and Bone” I did love “Six of Crows” and am therefore a lot more willing to try out anything Leigh Bardugo writes! Of course I love any stories based off of folklore and fairy tales too so this book is bound to be interesting!

2.) Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

It’s mostly a guarantee for me to add any new or upcoming YA Fantasy books but especially when they have diverse characters. This book has a gender fluid character that’s also a thief and like I said earlier I love thief characters in fantasy!

1.) The Bird & The Sword by Amy Harmon

This was another book I found on sale for my Kindle and I wasn’t really going to get it since I hadn’t heard of it before but I read a sample and fell in love! Of course I haven’t read it yet clearly but it definitely will be read here at some point. It’s about a girl who has magical abilities and must not speak at all.

    So many great books – I just added Beasts Made of Night and The Library of Fates to my TBR because of you! Haha

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t read The Kiss of Deception πŸ˜‚ I pretty much want to read it for the reasons you mentioned. I don’t know if I’m going to like it but I just can’t resist hyped books, haha.

      Glad it isn’t just me as well! I’m pretty terrible about adding books I am almost sure I won’t like just to make sure I won’t like it, haha! But I always like to hear opinions on hyped books no matter if it’s positive or negative so I try and bring that to my blog too! πŸ™‚

    Fantastic list! I haven’t read An Ember in the Ashes but I heard so many amazing things about it, I definitely want to check it out! I adored Six of Crows too so The Language of Thorns is on my TBR list too. Happy reading! Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday!

    I also love when we get a main character who is a thief! It’s definitely a thing that makes me want to read a book. You’ll have to let me know how The Alchemists of Loom is! Mask of Shadows and The Kiss of Deception are also on my TBR!

      Yes! Who doesn’t love thief characters? Hopefully both Alchemists of Loom and Mask of Shadows have great thief characters and are just enjoyable in general! πŸ™‚

    There are so many gorgeous covers on this list (I know it should sway me but it does). Beasts Made of Night sounds so interesting and The Library of Fates! I might have to steal them away and add them to my TBR. I hope they’re as good as they look! πŸ™‚

      I’m always adding books for their covers, haha, you aren’t alone!
      I also think that Beasts Made of Night and The Library of Fates sound so unique and I hope they’re as good as they sound too! πŸ™‚

    The Tiger’s Daughter sounds seriously amazing! I also just found out that I was approved for the ARC of that book and I’m BEYOND exited about that! πŸ˜€
    I’m also very exited about The Language of Thorns! I really enjoy both of Leigh Bardugo’s series a lot, so it’s quiet obvious why I’m exited for this book!
    Great list Heather! πŸ™‚

      So jealous you got an ARC of The Tiger’s Daughter, I really hope you love it and I can’t wait to see what you think! It sounds so amazing!
      I’m excited to see how Leigh Bardugo will handle a book of short stories but at the same time I think I already know it will be great!
      Thanks Anna! πŸ™‚

        I think that Leigh Bardugo will do great with short stories. I have already read two or three of her novellas (that are set in the Grisha world) and they have been fantastic! πŸ˜€
