5 Books From Multiple Genre That I've Recently Added To My TBR List


5 Books From Multiple Genre That I've Recently Added To My TBR List


   

It's been awhile since I've done a Top Ten Tuesday by the Broke and the Bookish! Partly because I haven't been reading as much as I should/could. But that doesn't mean there aren't books I'm interested in reading, hehe. Because I definitely have a loooot of books I want to read!!

#Contemporary Romance

#1 True to You by Becky Wade

Why This Book: Read a lovely review by RissiWrites. The story sounds delightful with a Navy SEAL hero and an introverted genealogist. Plus, its Becky Wade, people. She’s fabulous.

#Young Adult


Why This Book: This book popped up on the fabulous Dramabeans K-drama blog and immediately I was intrigued. A book about a Korean-American girl using K-drama tropes to find true love? Sounds way too cute!

#3 For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund 

Why This Book: This book has come on and off my radar for a little while but I read another great review for it on The Silver Petticoat Review. I’m a big Persuasian fan – so a young adult sci-fi remake? Sign me up.

#4 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Why This Book: Who hasn’t heard of this book, lol? I’m just horribly behind on reading it. It sounds fabulous from all the rave reviews I’ve heard about it.

#Nonfiction

#5 Adams-Jefferson Letters by Adams, Jefferson; editor Cappon

Why This Book: There’s something so fascinating and intriguing about getting the actual words of people from history. It’s more personal than a history book could ever be. And the American Revolution era is my fav.

Let me know the books you're excited about reading and the genres they're from!

  1. I have #3 and have started reading it, it's suppose to be a retelling of Jane Austen's 'persuasion' which is one of my favorite Austen books which is the only reason I wanted to read this book. but 'for darkness..' is rather slow or maybe it's me because I can't seem to continue after chapter 4. maybe it will get better?

    I don't quite read contemporary romance and I don't quite like nonfiction. six of crows I keep hearing about and I have read the excerpts a few times but I can't seem to get interest in it. guess this means, I haven't been reading diverse books at all.

    have a lovely day.

      Haha, aww, I'm sure you've been reading diverse books - and you've definitely been reading more than I have. You had a lot of cool reviews for the fantasy books you were reading. :D

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Ahem.
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
