Top 5 books on my TBR

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner Hump Day!

Today’s topic is books on the top of my TBR! I’ve made a 10 in 2019 list, which are my ‘top’ books to be read this year, but the ones immediately in my future are… not all on that list, hwe hwe. And one of them, I don’t even own yet.

If you’d like to participate in T5W, you can do so here!

5. The Blood Mirror by Brent Weeks

The Blood Mirror (Lightbringer, #4)Fourth book in the Lightbringer series, I’ve been ‘currently reading’ this for months, but I haven’t actually touched it in, well… months. But, I’ve been listening to a lot of TYR lately, which is a band whose music I associate with this series, and it’s getting me in the mood. If you haven’t read this and you don’t mind copious description of boobs, look this one up.







4. The Monster Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

The Monster Baru Cormorant (The Masquerade, #2)This is another one I’ve been ‘currently reading’ for ages. Hell, this was a book I made an exception for in my book ban last year. I started it, got maybe a third of the way through, and got distracted. Such is life. I did really enjoy what I read though, and hope to get back to it soon!







3. Tokyo Ghoul by Sui Ishida

Tokyo Ghoul, Vol. 1 (Tokyo Ghoul, #1)This is the one manga on the list! I’ve actually picked this one up as well, though I haven’t marked it as such. I’m about a third of the way through it and it’ll likely be the first out of all of these that I actually finish. I’m rather enjoying it so far.







2. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Dark MatterI’ve been itching for this one recently. My husband borrowed this from me and ended up reading most of it in one sitting. He still has yet to finish it but I’m about out of patience:ย  I’ll just pick it up and leave his damned bookmark in there. With Crouch’s new book coming out soon, I wanna hop on it!







1. King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

King of Scars (Nikolai Duology, #1)This is the one. This is the book I wanna read that I don’t own yet… because it’s not out yet! This book comes out on January 29th, and I’m ready, man. I plan to buy it on release day. I thought about pre-ordering, but I’ma go to the bookstore and get it. Immediate gratification and all, y’know. Between now and then, I hope to finish at least one of the above, if not more. But ugh, I’m so pumped.







And that’s it! Have you read any of the above? Do you wanna? Wanna buddy read? Happy reading!

  1. Dark Matter has been on my TBR forever, but I haven’t read it yet because my library didn’t have it. I can’t wait to see what you think of it. Yesss, King of Scars! I think it’s my most anticipated release this year, and I’m also probably going to buy it from a bookstore (but I’ll have to wait until the weekend to get it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ). I hope you enjoy all of these ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. I read the first book in the Lightbringer series in summer 2017 and I really want to get to the next one, itโ€™s been sitting on my shelve since I finished the first one but I am afraid I donโ€™t remember everything from the first one and have to reread it. And since all the books of the series are not out at some point Iโ€™ll have to stop and Iโ€™ll forget everything and have to reread all of it again! such struggle! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. I understand hahaha. The fifth one comes out this fall though, so if you start now, you could make it by then. ๐Ÿ˜‚ They’re all chunkers so they might last you the whole time.

  3. Dark Matter is pretty good. It’s an easy book to read in one sitting as its quite a thrill ride.

    I’ve been thinking about starting the Brent Week series, but all the books are huge and I have so many other books to read.

    1. I’ve heard as much! ๐Ÿ˜ And that’s fair, they’re a bit daunting. If you like audiobooks though, the narrator does a pretty good job on them, so maybe that middle be easier.


  4. I love the Lightbringer series! The Blood Mirror is so good. The last book is supposedly coming out this year, so a great time to read it!
    Dark Matter has been on my tbr for years… I don’t even own it yet. Hopefully, one day I’ll get to it haha.
