I love lists. I feel like it’s been forever since I made lists on my blog, so it’s high time to make one.
Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl where we get topics for every week and make bookish lists on them. This week’s topic is The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List.
All my recent additions are because I’ve seen then being raved about in wrap-up blog posts of 2018, and I’m super excited to share it with y’all now. So let’s get to it!
1. 180 Seconds by Jessica Park
This book is about Allison who always keeps people at a distance but in an event, when forced to interact with social media star Esben, she begins to open up.
This book is about transitioning and opening up so I’m really interested in it. It sounds nice.
2. Cinderella Boy by Kristina Meister
I love retellings based on Cinderella. I love them. I’ve read so many books and seen most of the movies based off of Cinderella. So it’s not a surprise that I immediately to my TBR.
This book is about a gender-bent Cinderella story. Declan, transformed into Delia, enamours Carter. Carter, who is the most popular boy in school.
It sounds so cool and I can’t wait to read it.
3. Sometime After Midnight by L. Philips
#AlexFromTarget meets queer Prince Charming in this glittering romcom following a teen music prodigy and the handsome socialite who unwittingly turns him into an internet sensation.
Doesn’t that sound so good?! This just grabbed me. I added it to my TBR immediately.
This is also based on Cinderella so.. I’m sold.
4. The Accidental Beauty Queen by Teri Wilson
This about a pair of twins who enter a beauty pageant. Ginny drags reluctant Charlotte into the pageant and, due to an allergic reaction, Ginny convinces Charlotte to switch places with her.
Now Charlotte has to compete truly because Ginny wants to win the pageant, and needs Charlotte to do it for her.
Woefully unprepared for the glittery world of hair extensions, false eyelashes, and push-up bras, Charlotte is mortified at every unstable step in her sky-high stilettos. But as she discovers there’s more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.
5. The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez
This is a funny romance book and after The Kiss Quotient and The Hating Game, I’m all for similar books.
The Friend Zone will have you laughing one moment and grabbing for tissues the next as it tackles the realities of infertility and loss with wit, heart, and a lot of sass.
6. One In A Million by Lindey Kelk
This is another lighthearted romance.
It’s not only romance but also follows the self-discovery of the main character as she also gets to know more about herself.
Annie Higgins has given up on love: she’s too busy trying to get her tiny business off the ground. Infuriated by the advertising agency across the hall making fun of her job, Annie accepts their crazy challenge – to make a random stranger Instagram-famous in just thirty days.
7. I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella
This was added to my TBR purely because it’s by Sophie Kinsella. I’ve read most of her books and have liked all of them, so it’s not a question of whether I’ll read her new book. The question is just when will I read it.
This book shows Fixie and Seb who meet as strangers and end up exchanging IOUs. It sounds adorable and I can’t wait to read it.
8. Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by Rosie Lim
This book follows Natalie’s return to her hometown after her mother’s death. She’s been estranged with her mother for years because her mother did not support her choice to become a chef.
Natalie finds out that she has inherited her grandmother’s restaurant and sets about to turn it into a success.
This was added to my TBR purely by recommendation. Let’s see how it is.
9. Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
This, I found in a blog post of a blogger’s top 10 books of 2018.
This book is a contemporary romance and it sounds really good. It looks t be humourous and I think I’ll really like the main character.
Georgette and Travis decide to pretend to date in order to shock her family and get him a new job. Now, obviously they’re going to fall in love. I like the trope.
10. Fake It Till You Break It by Jenn P. Nguyen
This is another fake-dating-to-love trope. And this sounds particularly adorable.
Mia and Jake’s moms are best friends and for all their lives, their moms have shipped them together. It’s gotten to the point that Mia is unable to date anyone else because her mom drives the boys away.
Mia and Jake decide to fake date and stage a really bad breakup. That ought to put a stop to their mom’s plans.
The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought…
