Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly discussion hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl (and formerly hosted by The Broke and the Bookish), and this week’s topic is a free-for-all! Today I’m going to be featuring ten books in my Netgalley queue that I want to read ASAP because either 1) I’ve been really excited about them forever and 2) some I’ve had on this list for a while and need to get to reading and reviewing in a timely manner. I want to get back to that 80% mark by the end of the year, I want to clear out some of those titles that have been in my Netgalley queue for literal years, and I want to read the fun new stuff instead of feeling guilty that I’ve had these things waiting for reviews for so long.
I read a lot on my Kindle on my vacation this month and reading that much on it made me realize how much I enjoyed the ease and convenience of it, especially while in bed! Plus I can take my Kindle with me everywhere in my purse and I was able to sneak in some good reading in the downtime between stops. Anyway, let’s get on with that list! I’m hoping that choosing ten books to read from my queue will help serve as a Netgalley TBR as well!
- The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso :: I think this entire trilogy has been released by now, and some bookstagram friends have enjoyed it!
- In Calabria by Peter S. Beagle :: I love what I’ve read of his so far (and I’m a new Beagle reader), so I definitely need to finish this.
- The Red-Stained Wings by Elizabeth Bear :: I loved the first book of this series, and I really want to know where she takes the story in the sequel.
- The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas :: I love anything about time travel.
- The Last Collection by Jeanne Mackin :: Berkley puts out some amazing historical fiction, and I’ve never been disappointed.
- Bethlehem by Karen Kelly :: I love the Gilded Era, and this is set close to where I used to live!
- Burn by James Patrick Kelly :: I read and taught a short story of his for my science fiction course, and I’ve been wanting to read more of his work!
- Meet Me in the Future by Kameron Hurley :: Hurley is an auto-buy/-read author for me, and I’ve loved everything I’ve read of hers.
- The Grace Year by Kim Liggett :: It’s touted as something in the vein of The Handmaid’s Tale, and it sounds weirdly interesting to me.
- The Duke is but a Dream by Anna Bennett :: I’m enjoying more and more of my forays into romance, especially regency romance.
Are any of these on your TBR/Netgalley queue? Which have you read so far and have enjoyed?

A lot of these I haven’t heard about, but they look great! I love time travel in books, and historical romance A LOT, so I’ll be adding those to my to-read list. Hope you’ll enjoy all these novels! 🙂
Time travel seems to be so rare, and I always searched for books that had that element in it!
THE GRACE YEAR sounds soooo good!! I can’t wait to try it– plus, I’ve been needing more Dystopian in my life!
Yes!! I’ve been needing a little bit of dystopian in my reading lately!
This post makes me feel so much better about also having 10+ netgalley arcs i haven’t got to yet. It’s just so easy to request thing?? Also yessss time travel!! Big fan.
My TT is and the topic is essentially ‘things I should be reading right now and REALLY want to but for some reason I am not’
It is much too easy to request! I get really excited about a lot of the books I see listed, and I have to make sure now that I’m going to have the time to read them!
Good luck with your reading list. I hope you love everything on it.
Thank you! It was nice to put together a list like this because it makes it a little more manageable!
Oh gosh, you mentioned NetGalley, and now I’m triggered. That 80% goal feels so unattainable to me. xD But I’m putting up the good fight. The only one I know from your list, I think, is The Tethered Mage, but I’ve heard such good things about it! I hope you enjoy!
Here’s my TTT post.
It is too easy to request books on there and watch them stack up!
Woo! You have quite the queue ahead of you! I hope you enjoy most of these when you get to them. Happy reading!
I do, but I’m excited to read them. Thank you!
