Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.

This weeks theme is:  Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf


Time for my first Top Ten Tuesday post of 2020, and an opportunity to glance at my shelves in search of potential future reading. By ‘shelves’ I’m going for a mixture of actual shelves and upcoming books that I’ve managed to request from the library, so they’ll be on my shelf within the next few weeks or so, hopefully!

The Guest List by Lucy Foley – The description of this puts me in mind of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, so I can’t wait to read it.

The Other People by C. J. Tudor – An author I’ve seen mentioned often and yet I’ve never read any of her books. I like the sound of this new book so will check it out.

The Poison Song by Jen Williams – The library finally have a copy of the final book in the Winnowing Flame trilogy. I enjoyed both previous instalments and can’t wait to find out how it ends.

Another Agatha Christie novel – I’m slowly reading more Christie and I have a few books that could feature here, especially the Poirot stories.

Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D Barker – I have a couple of vampire-themed books to read, and this one has appeared in many TBR-type posts before.

Stoker’s Wilde by Steven Hopstaken and Melissa Prusi – And here’s another vampire-themed novel, I think. Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde join forces to tackle supernatural forces.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – I can’t wait to start this one having seen so many good reviews for it.

Highfire by Eoin Colfer – Dragons! This one sounds like is might be quite a funny read so I’m looking forward to something a little different.

Something by Terry Pratchett – The Good Omens tv series is responsible for me wanting to discover the works of Terry Pratchett. I watched that, then read the book, which I really enjoyed, and now I keep eyeing the Discworld books. I just can’t decide whether I should start at the beginning or choose one of the series within the series.

? – What have I missed? I’m certain there are many other great books that I need to add to my shelves.


So, have you read any of the books that made my list this week?  If so, what did you think of them? See you again next time for another Top Ten Tuesday.

    I have C. J. Tudor’s books in my TBR for this year. All of them! I will probably start with The Other People since I have an ARC.
