  2. These are all newbies to me (one of the best Top Ten Tuesday meme to introduce us to some new books!), but I love that Sherlock is on this list! Anything related to him has to be good. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Lauren.

  3. This looks like a great list- I'm especially curious about Redemption (love that cover) and A Two Reel Murder.

    1. Thanks! If you're interested in a dystopian focusing on redemption, then you would definitely be interested, and if you like silent movies, you really need to look into A Two Reel Murder!

  8. Huh. I haven't heard of ANY of these! I know that the chance of that happening was slim, but I'd heard of about half of Sierra's list!

    As for the cover of Amanda Lester and the Pink Sugar Conspiracy, it made me grin because it looks for anything like a knockoff Harry Potter book!

    1. Amanda Lester is definitely HP meets Sherlock, and is easily one of the best books I've read so far this year. :)

  9. I have to read Strings. I have heard of it and have it on my TBR list but I haven't picked it up yet. Sadly, I actually own Melophobia but I haven't read it yet either!
    Thanks for sharing.

  22. Maybe it's because I'm reading a book about fire that the covers with flames on them jumped right out at me. All of these sound really good, Lauren. I'm not familair with any of them. Thank you for sharing!

  26. Some of these sound really interesting, especially the Sherlock Holmes one. But then again, I've got a weakness for Sherlock Holmes-related/inspired books.

    I'd also totally read the children's books. The Amanda Lester title made me giggle a bit.

  27. This week's topic is going to EXPLODE my TBR that was already kind of exploding... good problem to have I suppose:). I added A Two Reel Murder, The Spirit Chaser (I love Supernatural) and the Sherlock Holmes book (reading professional Holmes fan fiction is a favorite addiction of mine) - they look great!
