Towering TBR

I think this is going to be a regular(ish) segment on the blog since my desire to read new books vastly outstrips my ability to dwindle down my TBR list...oh, to have more free time!  Anyways, these are some new additions to the good ol' TBR:

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz...tons of amazing hype surrounding this book!

Man in the Empty Suit by Sean Ferrell...first time I've ever heard of this but the premise of a time-traveler who finds his future self murdered (when he knows he's supposed to live much longer).  Gotta love a sci-fi mystery!

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Gail Carriger series - woot!!

The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin...lots of hype AND recommended by my Momma :)

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Powell...I've read Powell before and really enjoyed her writing AND this book is getting rave reviews (see Asheley's great review from Into the Hall of Books)!

And lastly Ex-Heroes by Peter Clines...I got this recommendation from the Books on the Nightstand Podcast and the premise of superheroes in a post-apocalyptic world sounds interesting.


  1. I need more time to read too!!! I have piles of books that I'm dying to get to and I just don't have enough time!

    You must read The Orchardist!!!

  2. There is never enough time to read! My TBR pile is insane. Oooh, I really want to read Etiquette and Espionage, I've heard it's brilliant!

  3. You need to read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe and Eleanor & Park. They're both amazing reads with great characters and beautiful writing styles. Man in the Empty Suit is on my wishlist, the concept reminds me of Looper which I loved though the plot goes in a totally different direction.

  4. Oh my gosh, Eleanor and Park. My heart just sped up when I simply saw the cover. PLEASE find time to add that one in when you can! If that doesn't make my best of for this year, then this will BE the year for books. It's SO GOOD. So very, very good. I'm also pretty curious about Aristotle and Dante (and I love that cover!)
