I’ve been in a weird mood this week – reading a lot but not feeling very invested in them, not at all able to write any reviews and might be coming up on slump soon 😫😫😫 But I can’t have no posts this week, so I’m here with this idea that I first saw on Mel’s blog @ Mel to the Any. She is the best reviewer you can find and the sweetest person I know, always encouraging me – so I implore you all to checkout her blog because it’s awesome !!!! And below are some of the highest rated books on my TBR that have already been published.
💨 10. The Four Legendary Kingdoms by Matthew Reilly
4.29 | 4,640 ratings | 549 reviews
It’s a shame that this book is still on my TBR because I bought it as a gift to myself for my birthday almost 18 months ago. It’s also the fourth installment in one of my favorite series and I can’t figure out why I am waiting. But I still love Jack West Jr. and I will get to it soon.
💨 9. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
4.30 | 81,431 ratings | 11,328 reviews
I have always been fascinated by mythologies of various countries though I haven’t read any of the classic novels. That’s why, this book made it to my TBR as soon as I heard of it (Also I have no patience to read The Odyssey). Why have I still not read it … no clue 🤔🤔🤔
💨 8. Yes We (Still) Can by Dan Pfeiffer
4.32 | 856 ratings | 97 reviews
I’m not a very big fan of biographies and the only non-fiction books that interest me are related to politics. When I saw this book on a shelf at B&N last week, I immediately added it to my TBR. And anyone who loves listening to Pod Save America, should definitely read this one.
💨 7. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
4.32 | 119,269 ratings | 17,170 reviews
Obviously, everyone seems to love this one. I know I probably will too, but I am just not in the right headspace for an intense fantasy.
💨 6. Illuminae by Amy Kauffman, Jay Kristoff
4.32 | 69,991 ratings | 17,353 reviews
I actually did start this book but had to return it to the library. Though I almost never read sci-fi, I really did find the format very interesting and the audiobook has wonderful effects.
💨 5. Scythe by Neal Shusterman
4.35 | 36,723 ratings | 7,623 reviews
I really find the premise of this book very interesting and I’m sure I will read it someday 😀😀😀
💨 4. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
4.37 | 32,727 ratings | 7,665 reviews
I’m not usually someone to be put off by hype, but this book is extensively loved and I don’t want to be disappointed. Also, it seems to have elements of magical realism in it and I’m not sure if I will enjoy that.
💨 3. Circe by Madeline Miller
4.40 | 23,275 ratings | 4,391 reviews
Another Madeline Miller book on the list… why am I not surprised. I just know that I have to read it… very very soon !!!!
💨 2. Moxie by Jennifer Matheiu
4.40 | 7,564 ratings | 2,142 reviews
I have been very excited to read this book since I spoke to Jennifer at the NovaTeen Book Festival and as usual, it’s still sitting on shelf unread. Hopefully, I will read it soon.
💨 1. The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen
4.46 | 358 ratings | 172 reviews
I’m actually surprised this book is the one on top, considering it just released last week. But I have only heard good things about it and I’m very confident that Sarina will make me very emotional just like with all her other books.
