Top Ten Books I Recently Added to my TBR
Click on Each Book Cover to go to its Goodreads Page
"First Life" by Gena Showalter- I'd marked this one To-Read when I first found out about it around the end of last year. It officially landed on my TBR list when I got approved for the title on NetGalley. It's hefty one! 480 pages!
"Black Five" by Lynn Bailey - This was another NetGalley find. It looked deliciously dark! Unsure if it's a MG or a YA, but we'll soon find out! Marked it TBR earlier this year.
"Stone Field" by Christy Lenzi - NetGalley, again. This one is a retelling of Wuthering Heights, one of my favorite stories. I love discovering new reads on NG!
"The Executioner's Daughter" Jane Hardstaff- Edelweiss discovery. Historical fiction set in Tudor era, about the young daughter of an Executioner who basically says "Enough of this!" and runs away to discover her past and probably herself. Looked very interesting.
"Dragonfly in Amber" by Diana Gabaldon - I purchased "Outlander" sometime in December and recently started reading it. About 200 pages in I realized that this was going to be a series I kept reading. So, I added "Dragonfly in Amber" to my TBR!
"The Serpent's Shadow" by Mercedes Lackey - I remember reading "The Fire Rose", the first in the Elemental Masters" series, a long while back. I really enjoyed it, but had no idea it was a series! A FAIRYTALE RETELLING SERIES! So, this beauty (second in the series) is now on my TBR.
"Midnight Crossroad" by Charlaine Harris - I've been putting off reading this one. Not sure why. Possibly because I'm worried it won't be as awesome as the Sookie Stackhouse novels and I'll be disappointed. However, I recently picked this one up and told myself it was time to go exploring!
"A Game of Thrones" by George R. R. Martin - I never had much intention to read this. I hadn't really heard much about it until the TV series became popular and then it was this huge thing. Still no interest... then, a few people whose reading tastes I trust proclaimed it was a fantastic book and I decided it was time to add this one to my TBR.
"Labyrinth" by A.C.H Smith - With the passing of David Bowie this past week, "The Labyrinth" was on my mind a lot. That movie an epic part of my growing up years. I think Jareth was among one of the first fictional characters I ever felt tingles for. I knew there was an adaptation, but it was impossible to find in an affordable price range. Luckily, they've republished it and I snagged it for $10 on the kindle. Looking forward very much to this one. Will definitely be searching out an actual physical copy at some point.
"Wildwood Dancing" by Juliet Marillier - This came highly recommended by quite a few readers. I picked it up randomly last year from the Library, but never got to it and it just dropped off my radar. Found it again in a completely different library and decided I'd give it a try, so it's back on my TBR.
