19 Books I Just Added to My TBR List

by - September 29, 2021

Do you guys judge books by their covers? I certainly do. I mean, the cover is the first thing you see. If it's not eye-catching, then it's a waste. Seriously, there's nothing worse than a great cover hiding a terrible story.

Anyway, whenever I get into a reading slump, or when I've read something particularly mind-blowing and can't move on to something already in my TBR list, I start browsing. Which is why my TBR list is so out of control. These are the newest titles to catch my attention and get me excited about reading.
