To-Be-Read: 5 Books I'm Looking Forward to Reading

Working at a bookstore has my TBR pile constantly growing as I get recommendations from fellow employees and from customers alike. I also have a habit of picking up a couple of new YA books when I'm at the library, meaning I'm never lacking something to read.

These five books are ones that I've had my eye on for a while, and I'm excited to finally getting around to reading them. Maybe they're on your TBR list too!

The Serpent King cover
1. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner

My friend Alyssa recommended this particular book to me earlier in the summer, saying it was one of the best books dealing with mental health that she had read in a while. I finally was able to get it from the library, so I'm super excited to dig in!

This Savage Song cover
2. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

I received this book in an Uppercase box this summer (which my friend Alex subscribed me to, and it was super cool!), and I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. It sounds super eerie and creepy, which would definitely be different than the stuff I've been reading lately.

Spontaneous cover
3. Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer

I think it was John Green who posted about this book on Facebook, but it's about high school seniors who start spontaneously combusting at a high school in New Jersey. Ever since I read the description, I knew I had to read it; it seems like an adventure waiting to happen!

A World Without You cover

4. A World Without You by Beth Revis

I actually haven't heard much about this book, but I kept seeing it every time I went to the library. It's gotten decent reviews on Goodreads, and definitely sounds like it pulls on your heartstrings, which fits along my reading pattern as of late.

Blood Red Snow White cover
5. Blood Read Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick

Marcus Sedgwick always receives high praise for his books, and he won the Michael L. Printz award for his book Midwinterblood in 2014. This particular book is historical fiction, which I don't read a lot of, but I enjoy his writing style, so this one definitely got added to my TBR list!

By all means, this does not encompass all of the books that are on my TBR pile, but it gives you a glimpse into what I'll be reading and reviewing in the coming books. What books are in your TBR pile?
