Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Recently Added To My TBR List19:00
Like most readers, I always have way, way too many books on my to-be-read list. It doesn’t exactly help matters that I add more books every time I visit a library, hang out online with cool bookish friends, or think about reading. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, a link-up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is all about TBR lists, and specifically books recently added to them. Seeing as I recently added a heap of books to my list, it’s a great time for me to share what I’m planning on reading in the (hopefully) near future.
The Whispering Skull + The Hollow Boy
Lockwood & Co: Book 2 + Book 3
I love Jonathon Stroud’s books. His writing style reminds me of Derek Landy’s, with its dry humour and strange supernatural characters. I read the first book in the Lockwood and Co series a while back, and ever since then I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of more books into our library. And I struck gold and found book 3 in the same trip.
Sequel to The Finisher, which I read last year and quite enjoyed, though I was a little disappointed initially to find that it wasn’t actually about finishing people off in a fight. It was still a good book though, and I’m definitely looking forward to reading this one.
Yet another sequel. My TBR list seems to be made up of mostly sequels at the moment. But there are so many great series out there that I need to finish. This is book three in The Waterfire Saga. I think it’s written for slightly younger people than I, but books know no age boundaries! I shall enjoy young person books about mermaids as much as I like.
Bones Never Lie
I don’t know much about this book actually except that it’s got something to do with forensics and murderers. I’m very much into thrillers, mysteries and awesomeness that is forensics at the moment, so I’m hoping that this will be a good read. Watch out characters, I might come up with some dangerous new plot ideas for my own mystery!
This is a book I found around the house actually, much to my surprise. I quite like David Metzenthen’s books (Aussie writer for the win!) so I’m looking forward to reading this one sometime soon. I have no idea what it’s about actually, but I’ve liked his other books, so I’m hoping this one will be just as good.
H.I.V.E.: Book 7+Book 8
I’ve had these books for a while actually (far too long if I’m being completely honest). But I still haven’t finished reading the series. So I’m re-adding them to my TBR list and hopefully this’ll encourage me to finish what has been a pretty amazing series.
Ink And Bone
I don’t know much about this book, but it involves the Great Library of Alexandria, a monopoly on knowledge, and plenty to do with books, so I’m definitely interested to give this one a shot. Plus it has a nice cover, which doesn’t hurt either.
E. J. Andrews
A post-apocalyptic world with assassins running around killing important political figures? Sign me up. I’m very partial to a good assassination, and I’m hoping this book will turn out to be an interesting read.
Have you read any of these books? What is the last book you added to your TBR list? Anyone else notice the blue theme I seem to have going on in my TBR list at the moment? Are you participating in Top Ten Tuesday this week? Leave me a link to your post in the comments?
