Top Ten Tuesday: Ten books added to my (never-ending) TBR list – fall 2016 edition

TTT autumn 2_bsf

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 I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately. My TBR list seems to grow and grow, almost by magic! In no particular order, here are ten books I’ve added in the last month or so:

1)Unmentionable: The Victorian Lady’s Guide to Sex, Marriage, and Manners by Therese Oneill: A non-fiction book actually makes my TBR! A look at the nitty gritty details of Victorian women’s lives sounds too good to miss.


2) The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan: A friend just recommended this one, and I have to admit, it sounds perfect for me.


3) The Taxidermist’s Daughter by Kate Mosse: I just happened to pick this book up when there was a Kindle price drop. The description says it’s “a chilling and spooky Gothic historical thriller “. Works for me.

4) Extreme Makeover by Dan Wells: Creepy, satirical sci fi. I love the description – can’t wait to see if the book lives up to its billing.


5) The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian: Okay, I’ll read anything by this author at this point.


6) Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman: Yes, please.


7) Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire: A follow up to Every Heart a Doorway, which was one of my very favorite things this year.


8) Lady Cop Makes Trouble by Amy Stewart: Book 2 about the Kopp Sisters, after the terrific Girl Waits With Gun. I won this in a giveaway, and have been waiting for the right moment to dive in.


9) What Light by Jay Asher: A new book by the author of Thirteen Reasons Why. Tissue box is ready, so let me at it.


10) Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton: I’m not sure that I know what this book is about, but I’ve read enough of the synopsis to be intrigued.

  1. “What Light” made my list too! I just got it when it came out and am curious to give it a chance – especially since Jay would be a new-to-me author. 🙂

  2. So many wonderful additions. I have never heard of any of them but I like the sound of 2,3,5 and 7 and the cover for the last one looks great. I hope they all turn out to be wonderful reads.Happy reading 🙂

  3. I love a striking cover so Down Among the Sticks and Bones has caught my attention straight away. I’d probably better check out the first book you mentioned first though.
    I really want to try some non-fiction, so Unmentionable sounds like a good choice.
    I read The Taxidermist’s Daughter a while ago and enjoyed it, so hope you do too 🙂

    • I’m glad to hear you enjoyed The Taxidermist’s Daughter! I definitely recommend checking out Every Heart a Doorway. It’s a novella, so it’ll go quickly!

    • It’s such a good book! I’m not sure if it’s meant to be an ongoing series, or if it’s just these two books. Either way, I can’t wait for the new one!

  4. Great post & list, Lisa! I, too, want to read Jay Asher’s, What Light! I actually own an ARC of it but I haven’t picked it up yet! I haven’t read anything by Neil Gaiman yet, but he is definitely on my TBR too! 🙂

  5. I’m not huge on non-fiction either but that one does sound interesting! Good Morning, Midnight also recently made it onto my TBR. Really excited to get my hands on that one actually and I’m not fully sure why lol
