This week's topic is The Ten… Continue reading Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List

It's been a long time since I've last done a Top Ten Tuesday post. I just haven't the time to write a detailed TTT post.
I have a LOT of books on my TBR, and since I've hauled quite a books this year, I have several unread books on my shelf already. But for the sake of this post, I'm going to talk about 10 backlist books on my Goodreads TBR, which I don't own yet.
I've sort of forgotten how to blog. I had a schedule going on until a couple weeks back. Three posts a week—one book review, one Sunday Post about life, and a random post based on what I want to talk about. But life got in the way with over busy schedules and I started to forget to blog.
I finally have a few days so enjoy a few days of posts before I become irregular again haha.
I saw this tag over at The Reading Turtle Duck and it's interesting so I decided to do it!
Note: there are spoilers for books 1 and 2 in this review.
I didn't expect much going into the book. I thought the series was supposed to be a duology (which was why I picked it up when One Dark Throne released) but it got extended to four. I found the ending of book 2 very messy as well. Honestly, I do not remember the second half of book 2 at all.
I have several favourite authors, ranging over different genres. If you ask me who my favourite author is, I'll ask which genre I should choose from. I just can't choose between them. And this means I have quite a few favourite authors.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Artsy Reader Blog and this week's topic is Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read.
I can not believe I waited this long to read this book. While I've seen a lot of people praise the book, I only got it after seeing Kat @ paperbackdreams rave about it. If you let her talk, she will somehow talk about Radio Silence. For a period that was all she spoke about on her Instagram. That convinced me to get the book.
I did take a while to start reading it after buying but once I started, I COULD NOT STOP.
At this point, I was totally into Kdramas. It's a new world where the shows end after a certain number of episodes, without having upcoming seasons or spin-offs. It's a good thing, but also a bad thing when the shows are too damn good. School 2013 was one of the mediocre dramas that I've watched. I watched it because it stars Lee Jong-suk and Kim Woo-bin, and it was said to be the drama due to which they became best friends.
This book has been on my TBR for AGES. It's one of the earliest books in my TBR on Goodreads. I was at the bookstore the other day and found a used copy of this book for a low price so I bought it, solely to knock it off my TBR. I really wasn't sure if I still was interested in it.
We follow Yelena, who is given the choice to be the food taster for the commander of Ixia or be executed for her crime. After living for a year in the dungeons, she jumps on the chance of being alive a little longer...
This movie is, hands down, one of my favourite movies of the year.
To All The Boys I've Loved Before is a book-to-movie adaptation of the book of same name by Jenny Han. I read the book a few years back and really liked it. There were a few minute things that I didn't like but overall it was good. I adored it.
So when I heard that it's being made into a movie? I squealed! When I saw the cast, I squealed. When I saw the trailers, I was singing praises and couldn't wait to watch it...
I read My Lady Jane, book 1, and I absolutely loved it. I added this to my TBR immediately. While I know that expectations set you for disappointment, this one did. I expected a lot of humour, fantasy elements and a story that'll take me for a spin. And I got it.
I should also mention: I really disliked Jane Eyre. I heard so much about it but I just found the romance stupid. Which was sad. But this retelling took everything I didn't like and changed it, also subtly mocking some stupid things that I mocked.
