Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday

Geez, it would probably be easier to list the books I haven’t added to my TBR list recently (there’s so much good stuff coming out!!). Luckily, I’m pretty good about adding books to my Amazon wish list when I find something that sounds good. Here are ten of my most recent additions to my TBR pile!

  1. The Broken – Tamar Cohen. A struggling couple does their best not to take sides when their friends get a divorce, but that’s harder than it seems. Thanks to Rose at Rose Reads Novels for reviewing this one—it sounds like it’d be right up my alley!
  1. Fiercombe Manor – Kate Riordan. A young pregnant woman is sent to a secluded manor until she has her baby. While there, she learns about the family’s tragic past, and is unprepared for the horror she uncovers.
  1. Rivers: A Novel – Michael Farris Smith. A post-apocalyptic novel about the southern US, where storms constantly ravage the Gulf Coast area, Rivers sounds like an amazing (and hopefully not prophetic) story about surviving when survival seems all but impossible. Inspired by a review from My Little Heart Melodies!
  1. The Museum of Innocence – Orhan Pamuk. One of my friends recommended this to me. It’s not quite what I would normally read, but it seems intriguing, so I’m going to give it a try.
  1. Hell House – Richard Matheson. I found this on a list of classic horror novels, but I’d never heard of it! For a horror junkie like me, that was just unacceptable. I’ve gotta read this sometime soon.
  1. Feed – Mira Grant. “A political thriller with a side of zombies.” Works for me!
  1. Syndrome E – Franck Thilliez. Lucie Henebelle’s ex lover calls her in a panic—he has developed a rare disorder from watching an obscure film from the 1950s. As Lucie delves deeper into the most disturbing film ever made, the hunt jumps to France, Canada, Egypt, Rwanda, and beyond.
  1. The Invisible Library – Genevieve Cogman. Irene is a professional spy for the shadowy Library, which collects literature from alternative realities. When she’s sent with Kai, her assistant, to an alternative London to acquire a dangerous book, they arrive to discover the book has already been stolen.
  1. In Some Other World, Maybe – Shari Goldhagen. In three different towns, four different teenagers go to see the movie version of the famous Eons & Empires comic books. Unbeknownst to them, their lives will soon cross paths in unimaginable ways. Hard to describe, especially since I haven’t read it yet, but it sounds so good! And also, check out that gorgeous cover!!
  1. The Poison Tree – Erin Kelly. London, 1997. Karen meets exotic, flamboyant Biba and, spellbound, she moves into the crumbling mansion Biba shares with her enigmatic brother, Rex. Drugs and wine flow as Rex and Karen begin an affair, but their summer of freedom is about to end in blood.

 

It’s pretty much all I can do to not get on Amazon and order all these right now, but I have so much other stuff that I still need to read! What have you added to your TBR recently?

    • No problem, thanks for stopping by! I have a hard time reading on the iPad, too—I don’t think I’ve charged mine in months, despite the ease of ebooks. (I don’t have many on there, anyway, so meh.) I’m thinking of investing in a Kindle at some point, one of the e-ink ones that won’t have a shiny screen. But I’m in no rush right now. 🙂 Hope you have a great day as well!

  1. Really excellent list! SYNDROME E is great – very dark and one of my favorite reads last year. FEED is another favorite of mine and FIERCOMBE was quite good. I’m looking forward to diving into RIVERS very soon (I just got that one) and INVISIBLE LIBRARY is in my wish list.
