Nine Books Recently Added To the To-Be-Read List

As a self-diagnosed book addict, I am always adding books to my to-be-read list or at the very least am intrigued by countless concepts. Needless to say, I had an easy time finding some fun looking novels to add to my ever-changing and growing lists of possible reads.

Some of the books are from seasoned authors who recently announced new books, others are upcoming books or random books I had heard of but haven't been too interested in until recent weeks. Below is the result of my "research" for today's Top Ten Tuesday.

Ten Books You Recently Added To Your To-Be-Read List

1.) Red Girl, Blue Boy
I've really enjoyed Bloomsbury's "If Only" line of books, so discovering there were (at least) three more titles to come (one of which I have a review copy of) made me quite happy.
This, the fifth of the "series" sounds insanely cute!
2.) To Get to You
Joanne's books are always on point, which is why I am certain her contemporary debut will also craft a special kind of nostalgia only she can write.
Amazon ǀ Goodreads
3.) Velvet Undercover
Not only is the cover snazzy, this one sounds very interesting and I'm always up for something different.

4.) Corroded Thorns
Emma's Beauty and the Beast novella is set to release later this year, and you know, I can never resist a good fairy tale.
Amazon ǀ Goodreads
5.) Young Widows Club
This book sounds... unique and kind of unusual to the normal YA market not to mention Alexandra's usual vein of writing. Needless to say, I'm intrigued.
6.) The Murder Complex
Its name notwithstanding (it's kind of creepy, right!?), the more I read about this, the more curious I am. Because of that, I've been eyeing the upcoming paperback release as an excuse to possibly read this book.
7.) You are Here
Jennifer's books look darling, so it'd only made sense that I'd read them. Someday.
8.) Forever Red
Black Widow novel? Yes, please!
9.) Hello, I Love You
This one just sounds like my kind of "perfect" read.
Your turn! Which books recently captured your fancy? Or if you made a Top Ten Tuesday list of your own, let me know! I'd love to visit and chat bookish things with you.
Happy Top Ten Tuesday - and as always, in case I haven't said it lately, thank you all for your continued readership and support.

  1. You've got a nice list, I've not read any of them but now I can keep an eye out for them. Here is my TTT list:

    1. Thanks, Andrea! I appreciate your visiting. Will definitely visit your list. :)

  2. Doesn't it sometimes feel like for every one book we read, a group of books introduce themselves and are added to the TBR pile?
    Nice list. Rissi! I've not heard of any but a few. But I too have seen good things about "The Murder Complex," so if you read it, please share your thoughts on it!
    Here's my list for the week: Recent TBR Reads

    1. It does, Grace! How well you put that. :)

      Thanks as always for reading! As for The Murder Complex, I will! I think I went ahead and preordered the paperback, so hopefully when it arrives I'll be able to read it. :)

      Thanks for the link to your TTT, I'll certainly be reading it!

  3. Great list! I haven't heard of any of these titles but they are sound interesting (especially the Young Widows Club--and it's a YA title? Curious) :)

    My TTT

    1. Thanks, Lianne - always great to chat with you! :)

      Yes! Far as I know Young Widows Club is a YA - weird, right!? Alexandra wrote Tumble & Fall (YA) and I think at least one other book under a different name. The story was what caught my eye! :D

  4. You Are Here and Hello, I Love You sound cute! The Young Widows Club sounds intriguing too.
    Great list!

    1. Thanks, Amanda; always fun to read about everyone else's TBR. :)

      I agree! But then, I'm all for cute reads.

  5. I'm looking forward to reading "To Get To You" too!

    1. *High Five* That seems like it'll be an excellent read, Laura! :)

  6. Love the If Only series they are so fun to read. Sweet clean stories are getting harder to find. I've seen the Young Widow's Club popping up a lot I'm curious and want to read it. I have You Are Here from my library in my TBR pile, I need to dig it out and read it soon. I'm picking up the Murder Complex today that looks creepy scary good.

    I have a lot I've read ARC copies but want to read the actual book since the formating on ARC ebooks kinda stinks sometimes when I can't download them onto the Aldiko app.


    1. I agree! Sweet, wholesome stories ARE tough to find. Perhaps that's why I fan-girled SO much over Not in the Script. It was cute and clean which is a rare combo. Ditto on "Widows." That books looks super intriguing. I just may have to read it when it comes out - without knowing anything about it. As for The Murder Complex, fun! I hope you enjoy - I agree, it does look creepy... that title along is scary! :)

      Ugh. That e-ARC formatting is way too annoying. I've read a few books like that, but it isn't pleasant. That's why I try to get a hard copy ARC, which doesn't always work. Though I completely understand why. :)

  7. I'm going to try to get mine up tonight -- if I can :) It's hard for me to remember books recently added to my TBR list sometimes BUT I will try. Even if I have to do less than ten :)

    Dance A Real: Fashion & Lifestyle
    walking in the air.: Literary Musings

    1. Exactly! Sometimes a TTT is more tailor-made for the blogger than others - i.e., you put together less or more than ten depending on the week's topic. Works just fine. :)

      I'll have to check and see if you put one together. :D

  8. I think I will have to add all of these to me to-be-read list, everything sounds so good. :) Although To Get To You is already on there.

    1. Fun! It's always cool when we can find similar bookish likes. Hope you find some newbies to enjoy, Kaylee. :)

  9. Some of these are already on my tbr, but some are not and I'll be adding them. So many books... so little time. ;)

    1. You said it: so many books, so LITTLE time. How are we to get them all read!? :D
