Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.
Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate!
January 19: Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR.
(The books I’ve most recently added to my Goodreads To-Read list. Links to Goodreads.)
1. Giant Days; John Allison. There was a snippet of this at the end of Lumberjanes Vol. 2, and it sold me with just a few pages.
2. The City of the Lost; Kelley Armstrong. Some of Armstrong’s books are more of a hit for me than others… but she ranks high enough that I’ll try anything she writes, pretty much.
3. Proposal; Meg Cabot. Cabot’s books took up a good chunk of my teens, so I have to read this addendum to her mediator series.
4. Shogun; James Clavell. My Book Riot pick for 500 pages or more.
5. Staked; Kevin Hearne. More druids and their hilarious dogs, please!
6. This Census-Taker; China Miéville. His writing makes me think. Have to exercise that brain!
7. A Monster Calls; Patrick Ness. This will be my Book Riot pick for book made into a movie… or I’ll pick my other option for the list and read this anyway!
8. All the Bright Places; Jennifer Niven. My Book Riot pick for main character with mental illness.
9. Spirals in Time; Helen Scales. Found this on a blog, and fondly remember picking up seashells while visiting my grandparents, so I thought I’d give it a read.
10. The Finest Hours; Michael Tougias. I saw the preview for this movie, and it seemed action-packed. So this may be my Book Riot pick for book made into a movie.
