Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular blog meme, Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week they ask us to share lists on:
January 19: Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR (inspired by Jamie’s New To The Queue posts)
This week’s list was pretty simple, I headed over to Goodreads and sorted my list to show me the latest adds to my to-read shelf. Done and done. I must say I’ve not been doing much adding to this shelf recently, in fact I recently went through and did a major purge of books that I just don’t think I’m ever going to read. Now there is still over 600 titles there, so I could probably cut some more, but at least I’m being realistic and acknowledging that some of these books I’m just never going to read, and that’s okay. Now onto this week’s list.
Ten books I recently added to my to-read shelf
- Immortal Nights by Lynsay Sands: This one is so new it doesn’t even have a cover on Goodreads yet. This book is #24 in the Aregneau series and doesn’t come out until 9/27/16, but I know I’m going to read it so when it was posted to Goodreads I added it to my shelf. Of course I need to read books #22 & #23 first…
- An Unattractive Vampire by Jim McDoniel: This book is a review request from Net Galley that I need to read before its release date of 3/15/16. Now it breaks my rule of only requesting review books from authors I have a history with, but the description looked particularly clever, a tongue in cheek twist on modern vampire stories, and I decided to give it a shot.
- 2BR02B by Kurt Vonnegut: I think I found this title through a search on the local library’s e-book lending site. It looked interesting and was meant to fulfill one of last year’s now abandoned challenges. I’m keeping it on the list because its short, 28 pages, and looks like something I might enjoy.
- Bite the Dust by Cythia Eden: I can’t remember why this book was added to my to-read shelf. Was it an unfilled review request? Did I read another story by her and wanted to read more? Or was it a recommendation from a friend? We may never know, but it still sound interesting so I’ll let it sit on the shelf a while longer.
- Occupying the Enonomy: Challenging Capitalism by Richard D. Wolff: I’ve been listening to Mr. Wolff on YouTube quite a bit recently and decided to look into a few of his books. This is the first one I added to my list.
- Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism by Richard D. Wolff: This is the second book of his that I added to my to-read list.
- Eve of Darkness by Sylvia Day: The last four books are all by Sylvia Day as I had a major score while thrift store shopping and came across five of her books for like 45 cents each! Of course they all came home with me. I’ll get to them eventually.
- Eve of Destruction by Sylvia Day: This is book #2 in the Marked series, the last book was #1.
- Eve of Chaos by Sylvia Day: Book #3 in the Marked series.
- Scandalous Liaisons by Sylvia Day: I’ve thumbed through this book and I’m not sure it is my style, but I’ll give it a serious attempt eventually. It is a book of erotic historical romance short stories . I’m thinking it just might be too much for me… If I don’t care for it I might donate it to the library.
