Welcome to this weeks’ Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish! Be sure to check out her blog!
If you’re new to TTT, it is a weekly bookish meme for bloggers to get together and create top ten lists of topics each week. This weeks topic is Books I’ve Recently Added to my “To-Be-Read” List. Feel free to share the link to your own TTT or add a book in the comments!
1. A Study in Charlotte (Charlotte Holmes #1) by Brittany Cavallaro
I love my Sherlockian re-writes, and this one deals with the great-great-grandkids of the original Sherlock and John. It made my TBR list rather quickly.
2. Night Study (Soulfinders #2) by Maria V. Snyder
There’s not many authors that get an auto-add to my TBR list, but Maria Snyder is one of them. I’ve adored Valek, Yelena, Janco, and Ari since the first book was released and was thrilled when she started this new series!
3. Bookishly Ever After (Ever After #1) by Isabel Bandeira
Using your favorite hero/heroine to shape your personality to get a IRL hotty? Why not. I’m just intrigued by this one: I want to see just what type of heroine she choses to model herself after.
4. Untitled (Lock & Mori #2) by Heather W. Petty
It’s supposed to come out this year. I’M WAITING. Is Mori going to turn evil? Is she going to break Lock’s heart? Is Lock’s brother going to have a bigger role? I need the answers. Sooooon.
5. Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli
Okay, here’s where I go a bit nerdy, as always. Carlo Rovelli is one of the founders of the loop quantum gravity theory, and I love reading theories of physics.
6. FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics, Vol. 4: The End Times (FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics #20-24) by Simon Oliver
Speaking of physics, I have vol. 4 of FBP I still need to read! It just came out and it’s at the top of my list to get to reading! This comic series has had me hooked since the beginning with its pop-art design, quirky characters, and physics-geek story lines.
7. Doctor Who: Time Lord Fairy Tales by Justin Richards
I might as well keep diving into geekdom while I’m at it. I got this book for Christmas and haven’t had time to read through it, but I’m all fangirl over the subject and the author! I may have to drag my niece and nephew in on this one.
8. These Vicious Masks (These Vicious Masks #1) by Tarun Shanker
I’m not a fan of Victorian England, but the combination of the title and blurb of this book has me wanting to read it! Victorian sisters with superpowers, one missing, the other on a rescue mission. Let’s see how this plays out. 😉
9. The Rat Prince by Bridget Hodder
This is my “I need it for reasons” book. It looks like a very strange re-telling of Cinderella, with one of the rats-turned-coachman as the love interest. I do have to say I like fairy tales in which the girl goes for someone other than the prince.
10. Please Don’t Tell by Laura Tims
This is one of those books that I’m not really that interested in, but I read the blurb and now I have to know what happened. :/ Don’t you hate it when that happens? It doesn’t really sound all that bad, kind of an I-know-what-you-did-last-summer vibe to it, it’s just been done over and over. Ah well. Here’s to another!
Honorable Mention: Doctor Who Coloring Book for Adults by Price Stern Sloan
I have to admit, I have fallen in love with all these coloring books for adults! This is one I’ve had on pre-order for at least a couple of months now, and it’s finally almost here! The sad thing is, Harry Potter Magical Places & Characters Coloring Book is coming out in March. :O Get to coloring!
