Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Recently Added to My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

There are currently 1,384 books on my Goodreads to-read shelf. I know I’ll probably never read all of them, but that’s okay because I’m always adding to that list! Today’s post focuses on the ten books I’m most excited about that have recently been added to my ever growing list.

Which books have you recently added to your TBR?



  1. Thank you! I now have 10 more books to add to my long pile too!

  2. I love your blog! As a first year English teacher, I devoured your book lists and posts for ideas (like these) on what students would like when I was deciding what to include in my new classroom library. I’m curious how you manage your reading list and how that overlaps with your student library. When you are reading new books from your TBR list, do you usually borrow from the library? Or do you always buy the book, read it, then add it to your bookshelf? I love adding books to my bookshelf but it adds up quickly. Just wondering about the journey a book makes from your TBR list to your student bookshelf. Thanks!

      I’m so happy that my blog has been helpful for you! Basically my reading list is based on what I plan on bringing into my class library. I pretty much read strictly YA because, for me, if I’m going to take the time to read something, I want that book to be something my students may want to read as well. I don’t read that many adult books for that reason, unless I think they’ll appeal to my students. The Alex Award list is a great go-to list for me when I want to read something published as adult but still holds appeal to my students.

      I don’t utilize the library as much as I should. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks. If it’s a book I don’t own, I may listen to the audio first and then decide if I want to buy the actual book. Or I’ll listen to an audio of a book I already own and then bring it into my classroom after I finish the audio. I buy A LOT of books. But after going to NCTE and ALAN for the past few years, I haven’t been buying as many books because I come home with so many books from those two conferences. I also utilize Donors Choose to bring more books into my classroom so I can remove some of the financial burden.

      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions 🙂 And good luck the rest of this year!
