What’s on my Kindle? | E-books I recently added to my digital TBR

I’ve never done a Kindle book haul before! In general, I rarely talk about my Kindle, as e-books don’t excite me as much as my physical TBRs. But I’ve been meaning to share with you some of the e-books I got for my Kindle for quite a while now, so this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme couldn’t be more perfect! Well… maybe not so perfect as the actual theme is to talk about the books you’ve added to the TBR and forgotten why. But let’s just focus on the first part instead. 

All of these I added to my TBR because I was really excited to read them right away. But as we all know that never actually happens, and they have been sitting on my Kindle virtual shelf for months and months now. 

In the attempt to actually make me read these books soon, I’m going to share with you 10 of my most recent AND most exciting Kindle purchases!

vicious by v.e. schwab

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong… more

the house with chicken legs by sophie anderson

All 12-year-old Marinka wants is a friend. A real friend. Not like her house with chicken legs. Sure, the house can play games like tag and hide-and-seek, but Marinka longs for a human companion. Someone she can talk to and share secrets with.
But that’s tough when your grandmother is a Yaga, a guardian who guides the dead into the afterlife. It’s even harder when you live in a house that wanders all over the world . . . carrying you with it. Even worse, Marinka is being trained to be a Yaga… more

the age of miracles by karen thompson walker

On an ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia awakens to discover that something has happened to the rotation of the earth. The days and nights are growing longer and longer; gravity is affected; the birds, the tides, human behavior, and cosmic rhythms are thrown into disarray. In a world that seems filled with danger and loss, Julia also must face surprising developments in herself, and in her personal world: divisions widening between her parents; strange behavior by her friends; the pain and vulnerability of first love; a growing sense of isolation; and a surprising, rebellious new strength… more

Have you read any of these books? Which one should I read first? I’m REALLY excited about «Elantris» by Brandon Sanderson. I actually started reading it in May (or was it April?!), but had to put down because of ARCs. I loved that first couple of pages I read and want to pick it back up asap.

Let me know in the comments below which book I should prioritize and read first! 🙂

  1. I love these What’s on my Kindle posts. It also painfully reminds me that I went totally crazy and bought so many ebooks that I could probably be burried in them (if they were physical.) Seriously I bought too many.
    For example, I also got myself “A pinch of Magic” and “The house with chicken legs”. 😀

    1. 😀 I try to keep my e-books somewhat organized, but when you don’t constantly see them it’s difficult to remember what I’ve got there. Lol
      The covers of these two books are so beautiful! I wish I’d have them as physical ones instead. Hopefully, they will be just as amazing as I expect them to be!

  2. I have read A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge and really enjoyed it! It’s a quite underrated historical fiction standalone in my opinion. It’s more of a fall read so I don’t know if you want to start this one now though (the seasonal reader habits kicking in, haha). 🍂 // And, I really want to read Pachinko and Vicious too!

  3. Oh yes! Yes, yes, yes to all of these! They’re on my GR TBR and I’d love to read every single one of them. I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts on them Alex 🙂 I’ve recently purchased Vicious and am planning to try that one soon. The cover for A Pinch of Magic is glorious!

    1. So many books so little time! I always envy those people who can read 20+ books every month, but even then I don’t think I’ll ever be caught up with my TBR lists 😀 Thank you! I’m very excited about these and hopefully will be able to get to them this year *fingers crossed*


  4. VICIOUS, girl this is one of my favorite books with the anti-hero trope and scifi features, you def should check that out first. It’ll hook you from chapter 1, I’m sure!
    Pachinko is also something I really want to read and I’ve heard great things about Gideon the Ninth but it seems like a really complex fantasy series and right now I feel more intimidated than curious!

    1. 🙌 Yes!!! I need something fast-paced and engaging. I’ve been really struggling with reading this month. Only this week I feel like I’m somewhat back and reading at my usual pace.
      I’ve heard so many good things about Gideon the Ninth and the second one is coming out relatively soon as well. Right now my big fantasy book is The City of Brass and I’m loving it! I’m 60ish% through, but had to start reading another ARC last night because it’s due tomorrow… lol

  5. Kindle books don’t count as real books though right? Like when I buy them it doesn’t cost anything cos they’re always cheap and that never adds up…….. 🙈😅😂
    From this list I loved Pachinko, not so much love for a skinful of shadows 🙈😅

    1. Ahaha, of course! 😀 And when people come over they only see your physical TBR so they don’t know that there are at least the same amount of books on your Kindle as well. Imagine to have them all on shelves?! I would need to buy another apartment just to store books 😀

    1. Thank you! I can totally relate to that 😀 I recently created a Libib account to track my e-books in a pretty way, so I can sort them by shelves and see the covers. It helped me a lot to go through my e-books. In fact, this year 90% of my read books were all e-books. D: I will definitely need to start prioritizing my physical TBR at some point as well.


    1. Thank you! The Whisper Man has been on my TBR since it’s release last year and now that I’ve got the ARC of Alex North next book I kinda wanted to read his debut novel first, hopefully I’ll have time for that 😀
      The cover of a Pinch of Magic is gorgeous, I kinda wish I’d bought it as a physical book.

    1. That’s wonderful!!! ❤ Which Frances Hardinge was your favorite? I haven't read any yet, but all of her books sound particularly interesting to me. I also have Deeplight on my physical TBR.


  6. I love your twist this week! I recently added an ‘on-my-kindle’ shelf on my Goodreads so I could kind of keep track of what I add, but that’s only for recent things. I’m a little scared to see how many other books are on there that I’ve forgotten about. Ha! I need to do that sometime. I haven’t read any of these, but I do have an arc of American Dirt on my kindle. I was just about to read it when the controversy erupted, so I never picked it up. I hope you enjoy all of these when you get to them! ❤

    1. Thank you! It’s so difficult to track the books on Kindle,especially with ARCs in the mix because they don’t appear on Amazon… This year I created a Libib account and added all of my ebooks there. I love that I can create different shelves and also that I can see covers of all books. It just makes me want to read them 😀

    1. Thank you!!! 🙂 I recently started using Libib to sort my e-book library and it’s amazing! You can create different shelves and actually see the covers of all books and the months you added them. I feel like constantly seeing these books made me want to read them more.

  7. Yaaas, I love this list! Honestly, ebooks are dangerous AF for me because I somehow justify that they’re not REALLY books so it’s okay for me to one-click my way through tons of titles… only for me to never read them until years down the line or to forget about them completely 😂 I’m TERRIBLE! Haha I have a few of these on my TBR but loved Vicious and Pachinko, and thought The Whisper Man was great and surprisingly not as scary as I expected! Still creepy though lol I hope you enjoy these 😀

    1. Ahaha, Emer said something similar in her comment as well. I try to NOT add a lot of e-books because I know I will forget about them – out of sight out of mind kind of thing 😀

      This year I started using Libib and actually helped a lot, to the point where 90% of all books I read this year were e-books D: (mostly due to ARCs but I’m also reading some older ebooks as well).


  8. I read the THE WHISPER MAN and VICIOUS and enjoyed them both, can’t wait to hear your thoughts. And I still want to read the Mistborn series, so far I’ve been focused on his Stormlight Archive series.

    1. I just finished The Shadows by Alex North and tbh.. there was something with the writing style that didn’t work for me, I couldn’t focus on the story, my mind kept wandering off. Lol But I still would love to read the Whisper Man. At least his books read very quickly.
