Top Ten Tuesday is a book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there is a different bookish topic and bloggers are asked to post their own top ten list based on the topic. This week is a listing of the Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added to My TBR. I have a lot of different places that I get my book ideas from, including Amazon recommendations, other blogs, and a variety of emails (BookPage mostly). I’ve found some great picks lately and I’m excited to share them with everyone!
The Witch’s Daughter by Paula Brackston – I recently read Return of the Witch and I really enjoyed it so I definitely want to read the prequel to that (The Witch’s Daughter). I even purchased it on Amazon this past weekend so I could read it as soon as I had time.
The Martian by Andy Weir – I saw this movie this past weekend and Oh My Gosh it was SO good! I honestly didn’t even expect it to be that good, I thought I would get bored but I was riveted to the screen. I also purchased this one on Amazon so I can read it soon.
A Taste For Nightshade by Martine Bailey, The Evening Spider by Emily Arsenault, and The Core of the Sun by Johanna Sinisalo – I read about these books in the BookPage January newsletter and they all sounded really interesting!
We Are Water by Wally Lamb, To the End of June by Cris Beam, The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, and The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline – I recently got a Book Lover’s Page a Day Calendar as a Christmas present from my friend Adria, and it is such a great source of book ideas! These books were each featured on one of the recent days on my calendar.
And lastly, The Children’s Home by Charles Lambert – I get the BookPage Book of the Day emails and this book was featured on Monday’s (yesterday’s) email. This book sounds dark and mysterious and fantastical and just awesome, I can’t wait to read it!
So what about all of you? What books have you added to your TBR list lately?
