Here's the numbers:
Books added to my to-read shelf on July 19th: 37
Books added to my maybe shelf on July 19th: 46
Books added to my to-read list from July 13th through 18th: 91
Total added to my shelves: 174
Um, yeah. I went a little book crazy in the last week. . . . (At least I didn't spend any money, right?)
Since I've added so many books, I thought I should at least do something with them and tell you about the ones I'm the most interested in (or have the coolest covers or whatever else). This will take me a couple posts, so I'm going with those I added to my to-read last night.
(Format: [Book title linked to GR] - [Reasons why I added book])
I really want to branch out and try some adult books!
The Gargoyle - Cover, sounds super interesting
Moloka'i - Rated 5 stars by Dahlia Adler, set in Hawaii, seen it before
The Dovekeepers - Rated 5 stars by Dahlia Adler, seen it before, Jewish*, historical fiction
The Golem and the Jinni - Recommended by Adira, really want to read a jinni book
Prince of Fools - Really want to try a good adult fantasy book, Harlee recommended a book by the same author
*Jewish - I feel like this is an odd reason considering I'm not religious at all, but I really like books with Jewish main characters or a focus on Judaism. I'm just fascinated by the religion and its history.
These used to be on my to-read list, but I took them off for whatever reason when I tried to cleanup my GR shelves.
Anew - Recommended by Holly
A Company of Swans - Dancing book, Eva Ibbotson!
Hunting Lila - Been eyeing for a long time
Trafficked - Been eyeing for a long time (I don't know why I had removed it)
Oh, I Hadn't Already Added This?
A lot of times, I come across books that I just didn't realize were on my to-read list.
We Were Liars - A lot of my Goodreads friends love it, I feel like I'm missing out on something
American Girl on Saturn - I follow Nikki Godwin on Twitter but haven't read anything by her yet
Olivia Twisted - It's on my bookshelf!
I noticed that I was making a pyramid in this post, so I need two random books. These two happen to have red on the covers!
Sempre - High average rating, I'm just curious . . .
It Looks So Good . . .
Octavian's Undoing - Looks so intriguing, seems to be a YA/NA crossover
That's all I have for this list! I'll have at least two more editions of this post this week (my "maybe" shelf and 2015 titles).
Have you read any of these? Which ones sound the most interesting? Do you have any book recommendations? (I'm very open to recs right now, as you can tell.)
