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.

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

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. 5. Do you smell your books? Not to be weird, but yes. 6.
