Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 books recently added to my (never-ending) TBR list


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Ten Books You Recently Added To Your To-Be-Read List. Since my list seems to grow day by day and week by week, this should be easy!

In no particular order, books I’ve recently added to my to-be-read list — some not yet released, some newly published, and some that have been around for a while but are still new to me!

1) Sweet Forgiveness by Lori Nelson Spielman

Sweet Forgiveness

2) Rook by Sharon Cameron: A YA re-telling of The Scarlet Pimpernel? Yes, please!


3) Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson: Because a little history is sometimes just what I need!

Dead Wake

4) Peace Talks by Jim Butcher: Can’t wait for book #16 in the amazing Dresden Files series! Not due out until spring of 2016, but worth waiting for!

7) The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance!

10) Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs: The 9th Mercy Thompson book doesn’t have a cover image yet and isn’t due out until spring of 2016… but you can be sure I’ll be preordering this one the second it becomes available!

    • I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying Dead Wake! I’ve always been interested in the Lusitania, and I”m really looking forward to reading about it.

  1. I don’t know most of these, but golly, what gorgeous covers! I take it you liked The Scarlet Pimpernel? I’ve been considering picking it up, but haven’t really made up my mind yet!

    • I just read The Scarlet Pimpernel with a book group, which was a really fun way to go about it. It’s very outdated in some ways, but it was a fast read and I was glad to have finally read it!

  2. Sweet Forgiveness is a YA retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel? SIGN ME UP RIGHT NOW! I never get sick of that story. Have you read Across a Star Swept Sea? That’s a great SP retelling.

    And oh my gosh, I cannot wait to read Winter.
