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 Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR. I’m actually kind of proud of myself, because last week I went through my Goodreads to-read shelf and deleted 175 books that I realized I’d probably never read (some of which I had no idea why I’d ever added them in the first place). But no worries — my TBR list is still huge and somehow keep growing week by week.
Here are the books I’ve added most recently, including release dates (since all are upcoming releases for 2016):
1) Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave (5/3/2016): A new novel from the author of Little Bee and Gold, set during WWII.
2) My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix (5/17/2016): The title alone makes me giggle… plus, I thought Horrorstor last year was such an inventive twist on a horror story.
3) Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally (7/1/2016) — no cover yet, unfortunately… but I’ve loved everything I’ve read so far by this author, so I’m game for whatever’s next.
4) The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem by Sarit Yishai-Levi (4/5/2016): Historical fiction covering four generations of women in Jerusalem.
5) Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke (3/22/2016): I love the sound of this YA book — mysterious and full of secrets.
6) Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan (4/13/2016): Yes to anything new by Brian K. Vaughan!
7) It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick (1/26/2016): I really enjoyed this author’s previous YA novel, Gorgeous.
8) Up To This Pointe by Jennifer Longo (1/19/2016): I also really enjoyed this author’s previous book, the YA novel Six Feet Over It. The plot has something to do with ballet… and Antarctica… and I don’t know how that fits together, but I want to find out.
9) To the Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey (8/2/2016): Can’t wait for the new book by the author of The Snow Child.
10) The Midnight Watch: A Novel of the Titanic and the Californian by David Dyer (4/5/2016): I’m always fascinated by anything to do with the Titanic, and this novel sound like it has an interesting and different perspective to share.
