Ten recent adds to my already teetering TBR pilePosted: March 31, 2015
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme where I get to make lists. Lists about books. It’s an anal-retentive book nerd’s Best Day Ever. And it happens every week! This week’s theme is “Ten Books You Recently Added To Your To-Be-Read List”. I’ve gone with my Goodreads TBR rather than the crazy pile of paper sitting to my right (trust me), because it’s easy to sort through.
I picked these two up on sale at my local bookshop. I’ve heard good things about Eleanor & Park, and I love John Green’s dialogue so I’m keen to read Paper Towns too.
I love Chuck Wendig’s books, and I’m interested in seeing how his style translates to YA. And I’ve read a few glowing reveiws about The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. That title alone would be enough to catch my eye! o.O
Someone told me about Scarlet in the Snow when I was looking for Australian fairytale retellings for my Australian Women Writers challenge for this year. And I was given an e-ARC of Storm in a Teacup for being part of a group that helped Emmie out of a bind last year — it’s come out now, and I’m ashamed I haven’t read the ARC yet. I’ll get there.
I’ve wanted to read Becomming Jinn since Lori and I were in the same pitching contest years ago. And I discovered Cornerstone, Death Whispers and Fragile Creatures via the e-ARC review I did of Losing It — each of those authors had a short story in the compilation, and I loved their stuff enough to add the books to my TBR pile. (Which is, of course, what a good anthology is all about!)
Now I just need to find time to read them all! 🙂
What is the last book you added to your TBR pile?
