  1. I really want to read more from TJ Klune, too, and I’m very excited to try Plain Bad Heroines! I still haven’t decided if I’m going to read the sequel to Chosen Ones, but I’m hoping we’ll have some news about it soon so I can make my mind up. πŸ˜‰

    • I definitely want to read more by TJ Klune. I ended up reading two of his books last year, and I know he has something new coming out later in 2021. I hadn’t even heard that there would be a sequel to Chosen Ones, although it makes sense. I’ll read it!

  2. Stephen Graham Jones was a new author for me too, and I ended up reading three of his books last year! V.E. Schwab has lots of great backlist books, you should try Vicious:-)

    • How funny, I feel like you’re one of the people who’s talked about SGJ a lot — can’t believe you read three in one year! (Now my competitive nature is telling me to hurry and read more πŸ™‚ ). I’ve been planning to read Vicious for ages. I even own a copy!

  3. Brilliant list! I love tj klune and I’ve always wanted to try Talia Hibberts books (although they seem a little daunting!). I seem to be really bad at following the ttt prompts lol so this week I tried top ten bookish things that annoy me. Although there could have been SO MANY MORE 😫 Here’s my post in case you’re interested πŸ™‚

  4. Mexican Gothic made my list this week too, such a great book. I need to read more by Moreno-Garcia I think. I definitely want to check out Plain Bad Heroines and Addie LaRue as well. News of the World is a new one to me but I like that cover, looks like something I need to know more about πŸ˜€

    • A movie version of News of the World just came out (starring Tom Hanks), and I plan to see it eventually, but the book is lovely and highly recommended! I definitely want to read more Moreno-Garcia too (I have ARCs for two upcoming books — yay!)
