Last 5 Books We’ve Added to Our TBR: May Edition

Posted May 26, 2017 by Ely in TBR / 3 Comments

As some of you may know by now the last 5 books added to our TBR  has become a monthly feature here at Tea and Titles and we are happy to keep bringing you more list of what we want to read.


Pretty much all of these books are non-fiction at the moment because that is what I have been into.

A School for Unusual Girls by Kathleen Baldwin

I was recommended this book after mentioning in a recent Top Ten Tuesday that I liked books set in the Regency era and was after some suggestions. This book sounds like it is set in the Regency era but has a twist possibly involving spies? I’m not too sure but it does grab my interest.

Light is the New Black by Rebecca Campbell

I bought this book on a whim because it was recommended to me on goodreads and it happened to be at a bookshop I was in. I am currently reading this now and am enjoying it even though it is a little to far into the spiritual than I like. Time will tell if I continue to enjoy it or not but so far so good. Oh and this is about finding your ‘light’ or your purpose you could say.

Adventures for Your Soul by Shannon Kaiser

This book focuses on providing activities for you so you can learn to achieve your goals and basically be the person you want to be. This book sounds like it fits right into what I have been reading at the moment and I look forward to checking it out soon.


Radical Candor by Kim Malone Scott

This book is pretty much about being a boss without everyone hating you. I am no where near being a boss for anyone at the moment but this book sounds like it would definitely have interesting tips on getting to that stage and ways to communicate with others in a working environment.

Rising Strong by Brene Brown

I believe Rising Strong is a self-improvment book about failing and rising through the ashes. Brene has won lots of awards for her novels  and this is rated quite highly on goodreads so I’d eventually like to take a look at it.


On the Spectrum by Jennifer Gold

#DISABILITYREPRESENT *cough* Okay, so this is about a girl who has a brother on the autism spectrum. Obviously, I’d prefer if the main character was on the spectrum, but I believe she has an eating disorder so I’m happy to just have some representation. We’ll see with this one.

Winning the Player by Leesa Bow

I’ve been really into NA sport romances lately—mostly ice hockey, but still. This one is an AFL romance so the added Australian bonus is something that interests me. I know Angel liked this, so I probably will too.

Adult Fantasy: searching for true maturity in an age of mortgages, marriages, and other adult milestones by Briohny Doyle

Briohny Doyle’s book The Island Will Sink was one of my favourite books last year, so I was super excited when I saw this! I’ve been trying more non-fiction lately so I’m excited to give this a go.

Young American by Jordan Castro

Yes, another poetry book. Just like last month, I actually had to picking out my selection a little carefully because all five of my most recent TBR additions were poetry. I picked this one because I haven’t heard anything about it, and I like seeing and recommending different poets and poetry collections when I can.

NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman

The thesis you’re probably all sick of hearing about is the defining reason I added this to my TBR. One of my texts is about autism, so I’m trying to read as much as possible. I know I’m being super vague about everything, but I promise I’ll give you some more solid details soon!

  1. Neurotribes is on my TBR, but I’ve heard it can be a tough read so I keep putting it off. I might need to add Adventures for Your Soul to my list. It sounds like it might be a good, inspirational read for Summer!

    I just purchased Neurotribes and I will be looking to read it myself. I heard about the historical details about Dr. Asperger and his work in an Austrian pediatric hospital during the Nazi reign in Germany, which really spins things of their head when it comes to the reputation on the psychiatrist who lends his name to Asperger’s syndrome. It also explores so much more about the condition up to this point and its view of the future.
