Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Random Books on My TBR

Does anyone else feel like we've been doing the same topic every week?

I haven't even participated in some of the recent TTTs because I would just be using the same books. Plus, I don't pay attention to when books are released, I don't plan books ahead of time (which, perfectly enough, I'm going to have a whole post about tomorrow), and I have like 27 different lists that could be called TBRs that all have different books because organization is for sane people.

This is why I've decided to make this simple on myself and have a little fun. I have so many books on my Kindle and my various different TBRs that I don't even know what I have anymore. I'm just going to click to random pages, scroll to random spots, close my eyes and point. And those are the books you're going to get in this list :-)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. The topic I’m doing this week is:

Top Ten Random Books on My TBR
(I don’t care if that makes no sense.)

Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon | books, reading, book covers
H2O by Virginia Bergin | books, reading, book covers
Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things by Martina McAtee | books, reading, book covers
Frostfire by Amanda Hocking | books, reading, book covers
The Snow Globe by Jenna Nelson | books, reading, book covers

10. Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon

From the Kindle – It was recommended (not to me personally, but a general rec) by an author I love, and it’s got demons, and it was free. So it just made sense to download it, right?

9. H2O by Virginia Bergin

From some TBR – It’s a post-apoc with poisonous rain. Right? Have you see the cover of the physical book though? It really has the cut outs and the page behind it has the text that shows through. Pretty neat.

8. Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things by Martina McAtee

From some other TBR – The title intrigues me, and the cover is pretty. Plus the blurb sounds good, what with all the supernatural creatures involved.

7. Frostfire by Amanda Hocking

From my shelf – I recently won it, and I really am looking forward to this one because it’s about trolls, and that’s one of the supernatural creatures I’ve never read about.

6. The Snow Globe by Jenna Nelson

From yet another TBR – A story about a women winding up inside a snow globe caught my attention. And the cover is pretty.

Disappearing Nightly by Laura Resnick | books, reading, book covers
Crimson Vol. 1 by Brian Augustyn & Humberto Ramos | books, reading, book covers
There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake | books, reading, book covers
Bird Box by Josh Malerman | books, reading, book covers
Insanity by Cameron Jace | books, reading, book covers

5. Disappearing Nightly by Laura Resnick

From… another TBR? – Love the cover art (well, this is probably my least favorite in the series), and it totally sounds like my kinda urban fantasy series.

4. Crimson Vol. 1 by Brian Augustyn & Humberto Ramos

From Hoopla – Looking to try a few more graphic novels this year, and I love vampires, plus the art on this cover looks great, plus he’s sipping blood from a bag like it’s a juice box which always cracks me up (but somehow he’s making it look badass). So it’s a win-win-win.

3. There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake

From Overdrive – It’s all mysterious and thriller-y… I think? And it’s got a deaf protagonist… I also think? (I saw this at Paper Fury and just kinda threw it on my list because it sounded good.)

2. Bird Box by Josh Malerman

From the list of books I want for their covers even though I have no idea what they’re about – Ummm… I think this one kind of explained itself lol.

1. Insanity by Cameron Jace

Once again from the Kindle – Pretty cover. Alice in Wonderland retelling. Count me in!

      It’s been so long since I’ve read Coraline that I don’t remember it and have been meaning to read it again. Being trapped in a snow globe does sound so interesting though, right?!

    Hi Kristen, I love your take on this weeks TTT. I love the sound of The Snow Globe and Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things, I’m going to have to add them to my huge TBR list. I’ve read Frostfire by Amanda Hocking its a fun, short book but the rest of the series let it down, gorgeous covers though.

    Loving that Bird Box is on your list for its cover alone. I have no idea what it’s about but apparently its on my goodreads TBR list too, so I obviously felt the same way.

    Happy Reading

      Hahaha that’s too perfect that we both have Bird Box on our lists but don’t know what it’s about.

      No worries, my TBR is probably just as huge lol. The good thing about Frostfire and the series is that I actually won all three. So I have nothing to lose by reading them, even if they do end up disappointing me, but thanks for the heads up 🙂

    I mostly use goodreads as my to-read list. I try and add every book I want to read on there. I like your idea of featuring ten random books on your to-read lists. I haven’t read any or many book about trolls, so that part sounds interesting about Frostfire. I think I read one or own one of that author her books. The cover for Snowglobe looks great and the concept of that sounds pretty original if a bit weird. I heard some good things about Insanity. Great list!

      I’m too lazy to put everything on GR since a lot of the time I find books on Amazon, and then I either download or just put them on an Amazon wishlist. I haven’t read any Amanda Hocking, so it’ll all be new for me 🙂 It definitely intrigues me, the idea of someone ending up inside a snow globe, and I’ve also heard good things about Insanity. Thanks!

    Yay for Birdbox, even if we have no idea what the book’s about! Hahaha. This was a cool way of tackling the topic for this week. There have been a few times when I haven’t done the TTT because I would have basically reused the same list over and over. Or I had to tweak the theme slightly for my post to prevent identical TTTs.

    1. Kristen Burns

      I’m just waiting to see someone else say the same thing about Bird Box lol. Too funny. Yeah, some of the TTT topics just really aren’t for me or would end up being the same books, not that people seem to know like 90% of the books I mention anyway, haha. I like the ones that aren’t just about books but, like, the things in books, so that you can enjoy the lists even if you haven’t read them. Anyway, tweaking the topics works well enough 🙂
