November 8: Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately (inspired by my New to the Queue posts)

I have several versions of a TBR list, so some of these books I plan to read soon, others will have to wait.

1. Throne of the Crescent Moon; Saladin Ahmed. Saw Patrick Rothfuss’ glowing review, and decided to give it a shot.

2. Half a Creature from the Sea; David Almond & Eleanor Taylor. Saw this on a blog, the title made me curious. Short stories, promises weirdness.


3. Kids of Appetite; David Arnold. Saw a snippet of this on an eARC site, didn’t win a copy to read, so went to the library for it.


4. Conspiracy of Ravens; Lila Bowen. I liked her first wild west with supernatural creatures story–saw the second book at the library.


5. Passenger; Alexandra Bracken. Saw this on several blogs, finally gave in to the pretty cover.


6. Shadowed Souls; Jim Butcher, et al. Because it’s Jim Butcher, Tanya Huff, Seanan McGuire, and some other authors I like.


7. Damsel Distressed; Kelsey Macke. Saw this on last weeks TTT. The cycle is endless!


8. Unmentionable; Therese Oneill. I know from college that the Victorians weren’t quite as repressed as people these days think. Saw this on a blog, and it piqued my curiosity.


9. The Bone Collection; Kathy Reichs. Some short stories in the world of Dr. Brennan, from which the tv show Bones was loosely based on.


10. Cross Talk; Connie Willis. Read a few snippets about this–people can get implanted with a device that supposedly helps you understand your partner’s emotions–it intrigued me.

    I really fancy the Lila Bowen book but still haven’t read the first. So need to catch up.

    Passenger does have a gorgeous cover! (And, personally, I thought the story lived up to it pretty well). I hope you get a chance to read it soon! 🙂

    Great list! 🙂

  3. I JUST added Shadowed Souls to my TBR after I saw it on someone else’s list. I finished listening to the audiobook version of Skin Game recently, so it’ll be really nice to get some Dresden in there before Peace Talks is released. 🙂

    I’m so excited to read Kids of Appetite! I loved David Arnold’s debut, Mosquitoland, and I’m hoping Kids of Appetite will be just as amazing.

    Passanger is everywhere, I hope it lives up to the hype when I finally read it 🙂
