Top Ten Tuesday: Doesn’t ring a bell… 10 books I’ve added to my TBR, but can’t remember why.

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Books I’ve Added to my TBR and Forgotten Why.

I’d say about 50% of my TBR shelf qualifies! Here are 10 that jump out of me — books marked as TBR in Goodreads, but have no idea what made me add them (and in some cases, have no memory of adding them in the first place).

  1. My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan
  2. The Wise and the Wicked by Rebecca Podos
  3. Yellow Jessamine by Caitlin Starling
  4. Too Like the Lightning by Ada Palmer
  5. We Contain Multitudes by Sarah Henstra
  6. The Nobody People by Joe Proehl
  7. The Brideship Wife by Leslie Howard
  8. The Dark Tide by Alicia Jasinska
  9. Love in Mid Air by Kim Wright
  10. The Stone in the Skull by Elizabeth Bear

Have you read any of these? Are there any here that you’d particularly recommend?

    • I agree — between the title and the cover, I was probably intrigued enough to add this book, even without knowing much about the plot.

  1. Great list! I love the cover of The Dark Tide and I’ve heard such good things about The Wise and the Wicked. I believe the love interest in The Wise and the Wicked is trans and I’d like to read more books with trans rep. 🙂

    • Oh, cool — I don’t actually know anything about The Wise & the Wicked (other than that it has a pretty cover) — more reason to read it!

  2. Fun topic this week! I too have Too Like the Lightning; the premise interested me but I’m not in the mood yet to read it, lol.

    Hope all is well with you Lisa! 🙂 Been a while since I’ve blog hopped, oops xD

    • Hi Lianne – Nice to see you again! I hope you’re doing well. 🙂 I think Too Like the Lightning sounds really good — but it’s part of a series, and lately I just haven’t been up for starting more series and then feeling compelled to keep going.

  3. I haven’t read any of these. When I was going through my Goodreads shelf for my list, I was surprised by some of books on there.

  4. I recently read The Nobody People and enjoyed it! It’s set in a near-future, with horrifyingly accurate government policies.. it feels eerily familiar — internment camps, etc. It’s definitely got an X-men vibe to it!
