Top Ten Tuesday: Books Recently Added To Your TBR

The theme for this week's Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Books Recently Added To Your TBR.  For my list I will include titles I've recently added to mine that are high on my radar - keep in mind some of these haven't been released yet.  Here we go, in order of most recent additions.


The Secret Fire by C.J. Daugherty - This sounds like it has a really cool premise!


Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson - Dream walking!


The Unquiet by Mikaela Everett - This stand alone featuring a parallel Earth sounds amazing - and it has been compared to Fringe, one of my favorite tv shows!


Shadows of Sherwood by Kekla Magoon - This sounds like it could be the beginning of an epic MG series Robin Hood retelling - and just look at that cover!


Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine - All I had to hear was The Great Library of Alexandria!


High-Rise by J.G. Ballard - I heard about this story by the movie adaptation starring Tom Hiddleston and it sounds like a fascinating rea…

The Ultimate Book Tag

I've nominated myself from Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense.  This looks like it could be fun.  Here we go:

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

Thankfully, no.  I would have been so bored on those road trips as a kid if I did.

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

Patrick Ness.  At least in The Chaos Walking trilogy - I've never seen anything else quite like it.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

Harry Potter.  1) Potter is about doing what is right in the face of adversity and facing your fears. 2) Give me a female character like Hermione any day.  3) Choice of going to a magic school vs. choice between a vampire and werewolf - Magic school, please.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?

I carry a purse, and sometimes a tote.  Usually, I have at least one book with me at all times.
