Top Ten Tuesday: New to My TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s prompt is Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately.

This is good timing with this post. With Christmas right around the corner, you all will know what to get me. You’re welcome.

  1. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. This sounds like such a good thriller/sci-fi book. It’s also up for Best Science Fiction on Goodreads.
  2. Monstress, Vol. 1:  Awakening by Marjorie M. Liu. This is a graphic novel with steampunk elements and the artwork looks amazing. This is another selection up for “best of” on Goodreads.
  3. Wool by Hugh Howey. My husband actually brought this book to my attention. He bought it for himself and told me it would probably be something I’d like. Being a dystopian novel, he’s probably right.
  4. Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory. This is the 8th novel in Gregory’s The Plantagenet and Tudor Novel series. I don’t know about you, but this is one series that I’ve read completely out of order because I didn’t even realize it was a series at first. It doesn’t help that this is the combination of two of her other series either. Still, I enjoy Gregory’s novels and I’m definitely looking forward to this one.
  5. The Fountain of St. James Court by Sena Jeter Naslund. The synopsis for this novel is a bit confusing. I saw Elisabeth Vigee-LeBrun and figured it’d be right up my alley and bought it anyway, lol. I saw a couple of her paintings in London this past May and being an artist from the French Revolution era, I expect this book to be interesting at the least. Also, I loved Naslund’s novel Abundance, which is about Marie Antoinette.

The next five books are all off of my TBR on Goodreads that I added after seeing them in Goodreads’ Giveaways. They sounded good enough to enter the giveaway and to add them to my TBR, but I don’t know anything about them other than what Goodreads says about them.

  1. The Calorium Wars:  An Extravaganze of the Gilded Age by Dennis O’Flaherty
  2. The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova
  3. Grigory’s Gadget by E. A. Hennessy
  4. The Ashes and the Sparks by Mary Victoria Johnson
  5. Nightmares:  A New Decade of Modern Horror by Ellen Datlow

And there you have it. I already own books 3, 4, and 5, but feel free to send me any of the other seven books. 😉

    1. Me too! She gets a lot of flack for her books not being 100% historically correct, but they’re fiction. I’ve never understood all the griping. She’s fantastic in my opinion.
