This Sunday tag is created and run by Steph over at A Little But A Lot. There are some very interesting and fun prompts coming up this autumn so check it out. Today’s topic is 6 recent additions to my TBR.
I have added several new additions lately which are mostly upcoming releases but in this list I’ve listed recent additions to my GoodReads TBR and tried to keep it colourful by having some books with covers and some without 🙂
Let’s dive into the list of my 6 recent additions to my TBR.
Untitled (Six of Crows #3) by Leigh Bardugo
Who wouldn’t add this to their TBR as soon as they knew about it. If you didn’t know about this then your welcome 🙂
Leigh Bardugo confirmed that her longterm plan for the Grishaverse involves a third Six of Crows book “many years down the line”
Doesnt say alot but I dont need anything else :0 I’m down for this!
Also no cover obviously.
No release date yet
Untitled (The Sixth World #3) by Rebecca Roanhorse
I’ve been waiting for this and apparently I will continue to wait for it for a while.
Synopsis is blank. It’s a mystery!
No cover photo.
Also no release date…
But at least its on GoodReads! Put there by the author herself!
A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow
I love the cover for this one. Also Sirens!
Tavia is already at odds with the world, forced to keep her siren identity under wraps in a society that wants to keep her kind under lock and key. Never mind she’s also stuck in Portland, Oregon, a city with only a handful of black folk and even fewer of those with magical powers. At least she has her bestie Effie by her side as they tackle high school drama, family secrets, and unrequited crushes.
But everything changes in the aftermath of a siren murder trial that rocks the nation; the girls’ favorite Internet fashion icon reveals she’s also a siren, and the news rips through their community. Tensions escalate when Effie starts being haunted by demons from her past, and Tavia accidentally lets out her magical voice during a police stop. No secret seems safe anymore—soon Portland won’t be either.
Waste Tides by Chen Qiufan
I do enjoy the human and robot friendship story lines a lot, so the cover for this sold it to me.
Mimi is a ‘waste girl’, a member of the lowest caste on Silicon Isle.
Located off China’s southeastern coast, Silicon Isle is the global capital for electronic waste recycling, where thousands like Mimi toil day and night, hoping one day they too will enjoy the wealth they’ve created for their employers, the three clans who have ruled the isle for generations.
Luo Jincheng is the head of one of these clans, a role passed down from his father and grandfather before him. As the government enforces tighter restrictions, Luo in turn tightens the reins on the waste workers in his employ. Ruthlessness is his means of survival.
Scott Brandle has come to Silicon Isle representing TerraGreen Recycling, an American corporation that stands to earn ungodly sums if they can reach a deal to modernize the island’s recycling process.
Chen Kaizong, a Chinese American, travels to Silicon Isle as Scott’s interpreter. There, Kaizong is hoping to find his heritage, but finds more questions instead. The home he longs for may not exist.
As these forces collide, a dark futuristic virus is unleashed on the island, and war erupts between the rich and the poor; between Chinese tradition and American ambition; between humanity’s past and its future.
Among Thieves by M. J. Kuhn
I saw thieves in the title and added it to my list. Actually I checked the genre too and its high-fantasy 🙂
M. J. Kuhn’s Among Thieves, in which a team of criminals who are the best at what they do come together to pull off an impossible job and against all odds start to care about each other, all while scheming to betray each other.
No cover yet.
Release data set to February 2021
I think I might have found my first “Most Anticipated Book of 2021″….
Elatsoe by Darcie Little Badger
The cover drew me in on this one and I heard about it from Books and Lala, she always gives good Native American/First Nationer fantasy and sci-fi recommendations.
Imagine an America very similar to our own. It’s got homework, best friends, and pistachio ice cream.
There are some differences. This America been shaped dramatically by the magic, monsters, knowledge, and legends of its peoples, those Indigenous and those not. Some of these forces are charmingly everyday, like the ability to make an orb of light appear or travel across the world through rings of fungi. But other forces are less charming and should never see the light of day.
Elatsoe lives in this slightly stranger America. She can raise the ghosts of dead animals, a skill passed down through generations of her Lipan Apache family. Her beloved cousin has just been murdered, in a town that wants no prying eyes. But she is going to do more than pry. The picture-perfect facade of Willowbee masks gruesome secrets, and she will rely on her wits, skills, and friends to tear off the mask and protect her family.
Release date – August 2020
