350+ Indie Books To Add To Your TBR

A week or so ago I put a call out on Twitter asking Indie authors to tell me about their books and send me their links for a post. I was imagining I’d get about 100 responses, but as you can see, I ended up with over 350. Today, after many, many hours of organising everything, I’m here to share all those books with you.

I’ve split everything into very basic genres. Some of these definitely crossovers between the genres, but I’ve done my best to fit them where they seem to belong. If you’re one of the authors and you’d like your book switched to a different genre, please send me a message on Twitter.

I obviously didn’t have the room to tell what the books are so I recommend scrolling through the Twitter thread here if you’d like to see the authors pitch things themselves. And finally, none of the links I’ve included are affiliate links but if you’d like to support me, you can find my ko.fi link here.
