Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Added to my TBR List

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 week’s theme is:  Books Added to my TBR List


This week’s topic is Books I’ve Added to my TBR and Forgotten Why.
I have added many new books to my TBR list recently so I’m going in a slightly different direction with the prompt this and featuring some of the books that have caught my eye lately. So, here are ten books I’ve recently added to my TBR list, some already out there, some yet to be published…

If It Bleeds by Stephen King – The new Stephen King book couldn’t not feature on this list really, could it?

The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant – Billed as a Les Misérables reimagining, there’s little chance this wouldn’t have ended up on my list. I’ve never read Les Misérables but I’ve seen various versions over time and look forward to a reimagining.

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix – Vampires and book clubs sound an interesting combination to me. Definitely not one I’ve come across before!

A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik – I’ve read a few books by Naomi Novik and found them all enjoyable so this latest release definitely gets a place on my TBR list. A school of magic and new student with dark powers? Yes please.

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence – A new-to-me author. I already have Red Sister and the following books on my e-reader (unread as yet), but I really like the sound of this new book too so onto the TBR list it goes.

Wake of Vultures by Lila Bowen – Fantasy, folklore, the supernatural, the Old West. Everything about this makes it a book that warrants a place on my TBR list. I came across it whilst reading about Lonesome Dove. The West but with added Fantasy.

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke – I’ve added this as I remember enjoying Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell so I’m excited to see what this new tale has to offer.

The Book of Koli by M. R. Carey – Another author whose previous works I’ve always enjoyed. This sounds really different from his previous books and is the first in a series.

The Angel of the Crows by Katherine Addison – Alternate 1880s London, angels, vampires and werewolves. Need I say more?

? – What have I missed that should be on my massive TBR list?


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.

    Okay, awesome list! We must be book soulmates or something. 🙂 Deadly Education, PIranesi, and The Angel of the Crows are all going to be must-reads for me. I loved If It Bleeds, Southern Book Club, and The Book of Koli, and plan to read Wake of Vultures at some point. I hope you enjoy all of these!

      Thanks 🙂 I’m looking forward to all of them, especially the new Stephen King. Southern Book Club is the other one that really keeps grabbing my attention, I fancy reading something a bit vampire-ish 😀
