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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The Calorium Wars: An Extravaganze of the Gilded Age by Dennis O’Flaherty
- The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova
- Grigory’s Gadget by E. A. Hennessy
- The Ashes and the Sparks by Mary Victoria Johnson
- 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. 😉
