Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish.

I'm going to go with some of the books I've put on my Goodreads TBR list recently.


1. The Darkest Days Club by Alison Goodman: I don't know why I didn't explore this one before (the cover? the marketing style?) but I read the synopsis this weekend and it sounds like a lot of fun!

2. Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor: I do love time travel! I actually have an eGalley of this one, I'm really looking forward to starting it.

3. Front Lines by Michael Grant: This sounds like a really interesting and intense alternative history.

4. A Fierce and Subtle Poison by Samantha Mabry: The cover kind of reminds me of A Hundred Years of Solitude (which was such a weird book), and the story sounds sort of magical realism-y

5. Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima: I read the Seven Kingdoms/Shattered Realms series a 86 million years ago (okay, three), and I think it will be fun to revisit the world.


6. Genius: The Game by Leopoldo Gout: I love the cover of this one! I'm hoping that this one will be a really fast paced read. I'm trying not to judge this author based on Daniel X, which I didn't love.

7. The Square Rood of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood: I really like the saturated green in the cover, and this sounds like it could be a great read- almost a contemporary, but not.

8. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: I wasn't crazy about Something Strange and Deadly, this sounds a lot more up my alley.

9. Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anstey: I was mostly drawn by the fact that our heroine is a nineteenth century lady with scientific aspirations.

10. The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong: This one sounds suspenseful!

  1. I've just started Truthwitch and if I'm honest, I'm finding it a bit hard to get into. But about 50 pages in and things are just now getting interesting so I'm hopeful that upward trend will continue.

    Also, Love, Lies and Spies looks cute and from your remarks, it sounds it too! :)

    1. I've generally heard really good things about Truthwitch, I'm hoping that it will be available at the library some point soon!

      I have a soft spot of lady scientists at times when the world didn't want ladies to be scientists.

  2. Iʻm waiting on my copy of Truthwitch, but Iʻm so ready to dive in already! Iʻve only heard great things about it. I also canʻt wait to get my hands on Into the Dim.

    Great list!

    1. Front Lines showed up on my radar a little late somehow. I've had some mixed feelings about Michael Grant's books in the past, but the premise is really intriguing, and I'm really hoping I'll enjoy it!

  4. I'm literally reading Front Lines right now! So far, so good! :D

    I keep seeig the Square Root of Summer popping up around the interwebs, so I might have to add that to my wishlist. Great list!

    1. Let me know what you think of Front Lines after you've finished it! I've had some issues with Michael Grant's books in the past, I'm really hoping it pans out for me.

      The Square Root of Summer sounds like fun!

    1. Into the Dim is just hanging out in my Overdrive reader... I've been trying to hold off until a bit closer to the release, but I'm tempted! (I'll probably start it soon...)

  6. How did I miss TRUTHWITCH? Sheesh! Yes, I do want to read that book. All the reviews are so tempting, can't wait to read it!
    I do have A Fierce and Subtle Poison in my TBR. Here is mine>My TTT

    Happy Reading!

    1. Maybe Truthwitch was one of those books that was so obvious that you forgot about it? I've definitely done that with my TTTs in the past!

      A Fierce and Subtle Poison sounds almost magical-realism-y which could either be great or a disaster... I'm looking forward to finding out which, and really hoping its the former!

  7. Not a genre I'd normally read but I LOVE the cover of Love, Lies & Spies.

  13. Great list! This reminds me I need to add The Masked Truth to my to-read list, because I really enjoyed Kelley Armstrong's book Omens. And Love, Lies and Spies sounds so interesting, I'll need to add that one too.

    Hope you'll enjoy them! :)

    1. I've enjoyed some of Kelley Armostrong's writing in the past (I'm quite enjoying her Age of Legends series), and The Masked Truth sounds interesting. Love, Lies and Spies sounds fun, too. (Lady scientists!)
