Top Ten Tuesday | Books Recently Added to the Queue



Ah, books. They are forever calling my name, sporting their beautiful, shiny and tempting cover designs not to mention the intrigue of a good story, add in the allure of a familiar author’s name splashed in bold across the book, and I’m their prisoner. This is simply fact.  

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic asked us to share the books recently added to our TBR. For me, my TBR has a very specific meaning in that I can’t think of any books beyond the novels that are kindly sent to me from publishers or on behalf of an author.  This is why I don’t really consider the books on my bookshelf although I know someday I will read them.  

When thinking about today’s topic, I decided to step away from books that might be on my TBR in a literal sense and share some books that I’ve either recently added to my bookshelf or books I recently ran across on Goodreads or Amazon, and I have been added to my mental TBR list if nothing else. 

Broke and Bookish January 19th Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR
 

1. Carry Me Home by Dorothy Adamek

Australian author Dorothy Adamek recently released her debut novel, and given that a blogger I trust raves about the book, I cannot wait to read this one. It is one of the books I do literally have on my shelf. Perhaps because of this, its pages will be cracked in the early part of 2016 versus the latter.  

Amazon | Goodreads 

2. Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard

Just picked up this novella collection from the "Red Queen" series. Figured if I'm going to jump into this world, may as well go in with every bit of information there is.

Amazon | Goodreads

3. A Season to Love by Nicole Deese

Love some new contemporary romance, but it's especially fabulous when it's from an Indie author.

Amazon | Goodreads

4. Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon

I just recently discovered this novel on Goodreads. One part of the "Doon" series author team, this YA novel sounds intriguing in the most interesting way - plus that title... it sounds a little bit deliciously creepy. Needless to say, it's high on my must list.

Amazon | Goodreads

5. Legend by Marie Lu

Copious rave reviews about this author and more specifically this book compelled me to finally pick up a copy of this novel. Here's hoping it's good!

Amazon | Goodreads



6. The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

If the gorgeous cover art weren't enough, this one also sounds like a page-turner.

Amazon | Goodreads

7. Out of my Mind* by Lauren Sabel 

I know nothing about this upcoming YA novel except for the fact that it’s sporting an eye-catching cover and the plot totally sounds as if it’ll feed my addiction for espionage stories. 

*Amazon lists this one now by the title "Lies I Live By" suggesting a new cover overhaul plus title change is coming.

Amazon | Goodreads

8. The New Guy (And Other Senior Distractions) by Amy Spalding

Love the sound of this one, and its cover re-design? Adorbs!

Amazon | Goodreads

9. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith 

The more I see of this upcoming film adaptation, the more I’m leaning towards it being epic. This is why I must first, read the novel on which the Lily James (Cinderella), Matt Smith (Doctor Who) and Douglas Booth led film is released 


10. Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren

A new contemporary novel by a favorite contemporary author? I'm so there!

That's a wrap on today's Top Ten Tuesday fun.
 
What books are new to your TBR?
 
Let's chat, and as always, thank you for visiting.
 
*Ps; Forgive the hard-to-read graphics today. Clearly I didn't think these through.

  2. I remember talking to another blogger who was recommending me Marie Lu's Legend. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on the book when you get to it!

    I hope you enjoy Pride & Prejudice and Zombies--puts quite the twist on the classic tale, lol :)

    1. I see Legend (and Marie Lu books in general) everywhere, Lianne. Because of this, I'm hopeful it'll wind up being a really good read.

      As for P+P+Z, it does rather sound like quite a twisted take on the classic. But I'm hopeful! And thanks! :)

  3. I loved Legend, but I recommend binge-reading the series. When thinking back, it's a bit slow paced. I binge-read it, so I didn't notice anything off. I haven't read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I did buy is for a professor though (lol) and she enjoyed it!

    1. Thanks, Christina! That's great advice; perhaps I won't start it 'til I have books two and three on hand. :)

      Yay! I hear pretty good compliments for P+P+Z, so here's to hoping. :)

      Thanks so much for visiting.

  4. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was so much fun! I'm really looking forward to the movie. :)
    Check out my TTT and Music Monday.

    1. I'm all the more excited to see such good comments for P+P+Z, and like you (even as a non-reader), I hope the film is good. :)

      Thanks so much for visiting, Lauren.

  6. Legend was a really fun read! The North American edition also has coloured font! (Who doesn't love coloured font?)

    1. YAY! I keep hearing amazing things about Marie Lu's novels, so of course, I simply *must* read some of them. Sounds like the North American edition is epic - I like any kind of great cover art! :)

      Thanks so much for visiting, Kelly.

  8. Several of these are also on my tbr. A Season to Love is one I'm hoping to read sooner rather than later and just found that it is on Netgalley so I grabbed it. :) I almost joined TTT today, but I still have other posts I need to get done, so I decided not to add it on. Looking forward to seeing what you think of these this year!

    1. Hooray for Nicole's new romance; it's a contemporary - plus THAT cover, so I'm 99.9% sure I'm going to adore it. Hope you do as well.

      I know the feeling about shuffling blog post plans; I was going to have something to post yesterday and this morning, which then got shelved to this afternoon, and here we are at Wednesday night and I've STIL NOT published anything. *sigh* Such is the life of a blogger. :)

  9. I've heard really good things about Carry Me Home - need to add that one to my TBR list. And umm... how have I not heard about Wild Montana Skies?!? Heading to Goodreads! My TTT

    1. Carry Me Home has been said to be an amazing read, Carrie - and I trust those who say so. This means I'm all the more excited to read it.

      Right?! I'm excited about a new novel from Susan and this one sounds like it'll have a mystery involved which equals more excitement. :)

      Thanks so much for visiting.

  10. Ooh, Legend is wonderful! I still haven't read the last book, but I'm too afraid it's going to break my heart. I've read P&P&Z, and mostly it made me want to reread the original. The movie looks completely epic, though! I just love Lily James, though, so that helps, too. :)

    1. How fabulous. I don't blame you for not watching to read Legend's final tale. Seeing a beloved series end is never fun.

      Like you, I think Lily James is a great actress, so here's hoping P+P+Z is an entertaining film. (Did you see the first episode of War & Peace? So. Good.)

      Glad you stopped by, Rachel. :)

  11. Wonderful list! Legend sounds intriguing as well as The Glittering Court (the cover art is indeed gorgeous). And Susan May Warren has a new book coming out? Oh yes please!

    1. Hi, Faith - thanks so much for stopping by!

      Ditto on The Glittering Court. That cover is amazing. As for a new book by Susan, I'm 100% with you: MORE contemporary amazing-ness from a favorite author is always in style. :)

  12. Thanks for posting the links to Goodreads, since it made it easy to add several of these to my TBR list there.;) A Season to Love looks like a fun read, and I am thrilled to see that Susan May Warren has a new series.:)

    1. Sure, Amanda! It was my pleasure; adding GR links always make it easier for anyone curious about the book since I don't post the synopses. :)

      Me too - as regards both Nicole's and Susan's upcoming novels! :)

  13. Lovely post! :)
    After I finish researching for my current story (only one-and-a-half books left to read!), I'm hoping to move on to something more fun, such as a Dina L. Sleiman or Gillian Bronte Adams tale. :D

    1. Thanks, Olivia. Best of luck with your story! That's an amazing accomplishment - and I hope you find something fun following all that research. :)

  14. My TBR pile is huge. One of my latest endeavors is to go back and read some of the books I've had the longest on my shelves, but never read. The next one up in that category is A Rose Remembered (Secret of the Rose, Bk 2) by Michael Phillips, which was published in 1994. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, which I read right before Christmas.

    1. What a fabulous idea, Kay. I'm attempting to read at least one book on my shelf a month that isn't a review book. I figure it's a start! :)
