Ten Titles I’ve Recently Added to my TBR
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is the top ten books we’ve recently added to our TBRs. There are tons of books constantly being added to my TBR, a lot of them new releases as I hear of them. Here though, I’m going to focus on books that are already published/I have access to!
Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
I don’t remember where I first heard about this one. It wasn’t that long ago. A couple weeks maybe? Anyway, perhaps someone mentioned it in a video or a bookish list or something. I then took to Goodreads and was sold.
The Shore by Sara Taylor
This was on my radar in 2015 near the end. That being said, I would still call that recent! I purchased a copy of this one and plan to get to it very soon. It sounds so good and I have heard nothing but raves.
The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango
This is another one that had been on my radar near the end of 2015. I heard a few mixed things, but it has been described as a literary/quiet thriller, and that interests me greatly. It’s not too long of a book either, so I’m definitely going to give it a shot!
The Door by Magda Szabo (Translated by Len Rix)
This was on a few best of 2015 lists and the premise really intrigued me. It’s a story about a writer and her housekeeper. It has come great reviews, so colour me interested!
The Beautiful Bureaucrat by Helen Phillips
Again, here is another that made lots of best of 2015 lists. Reviews from a few bloggers really solidified my interest. And the cover is pretty!
Black Apple by Joan Crate
I recently received an ARC of this one from Simon & Schuster Canada. I hadn’t previously heard of this one, but the synopsis sounds really good (and pretty timely, too!). It’s a coming of age story set in the Canadian Residential School system. Can’t wait to read it!
The Library At Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
So, this is the synopsis tag line: “Neil Gaiman meets Joe Hill in this astonishingly original, terrifying, and darkly funny contemporary fantasy.” SOLD.
Only Ever Yours & Asking For It by Louise O’Neill
I have been hearing about both of these books a lot lately on Twitter and BookTube! Especially from UK bloggers/vloggers/reviewers. These are out yet in North America but they are in the UK. I ordered Asking For It from Book Depository 🙂 Can’t wait!
The Child Thief by Brom
I had never heard of this before I watched Jaime and Jeff’s 2015 wrap up. It basically sounds like an incredibly creepy Peter Pan retelling. Count me IN!
The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
I read The Raven Boys during Bout of Books and LOVE IT. SO HARD. I’m 100% going to be reading the rest of this series. And SOON.
