We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf. Since we do a bookhaul every month, this doesn’t seem like a super interesting topic for me to talk about again. So instead I want to talk about the ten most recent additions to my Goodreads Bookshelf! I add books to my Goodreads alll the time and I think we might just find some interesting ones on there. Let’s take a look!
10. Kingdom of the Wicked – Kerri Maniscalco
While I still have to read two more books in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco I am already looking forward to her new series. This cover is what first caught my eye but the synopsis got me even more interested. Kingdom of the Wicked is set in 19th century Italy and I don’t think I ever read anything in that setting.
9. None Shall Sleep – Ellie Marney
Teenage FBI consultants in the 80’s. Do you need to know anything else or is this just an instant add? September 2020 can’t come soon enough for me! I just know I will love this (or the concept at the least). It is also all about serial killers and I love that in fiction.
8. Greenglass House – Kate Milford
After reading Emily’s (and her family’s) review of this one I knew I had to add it to my list immediately. It sounds like a wonderful MG book and I’m pretty sure I will love it a lot.
7. The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker – Lauren James
I already forgot most of what this was about, but I do remember it has to do with ghosts! We follow Harriet after she dies and it sounds pretty creepy. This one releases in September so I’m waiting for some early reviews before I decided if I actually want to read it.
6. All the Stars and Teeth – Adalyn Grace
This is the current highly anticipated pirates book! To be honest, I’m not really sure what it’s about but everyone seems super excited. It looks like it will be included in at least one book subscription box so I’m sure there will be a ton of reviews pretty soon.
5. The Once and Future Witches – Alix E. Harrow
In this historical fiction women try to get voting rights! Instead they’re becoming witches. Or something like that haha. I’m not completely sure what is going on with this one but it’s a feminist witch book and I hope it will be great!
4. K-pop Confidential – Stephan Lee
I don’t read that much contemporary and I don’t listen to K-pop. But I do adore this cover and think the story sounds wonderful. I enjoy reading about talented people trying to get famous and it will be interesting to read about K-pop culture!
3. The Good for Nothings – Danielle Banas
The first thing I saw was family business of intergalactic smuggling. And I was soooo pumped! We get a ragtag group of cellmates, an adventure to try and find treasure and it’s all set in space. If only it was June already.
2. The Jasmine Throne – Tasha Suri
A captive princess and a maidservant in possession of forbidden magic become unlikely allies on a dark journey to save their empire from the princess’s traitor brother. How cool does that sound? It’s also inspired by ‘the history and epics of India’.
1.The Stranger – Harlan Coben
And my most recent addition is actually a bit of an older one! I just saw the trailer for the movie adaptation and that looked great. Of course I need to read the book before I can watch the movie. So I plan on doing just that!
These are the ten most recent additions to my Goodreads want to read shelf. Are there any books on here that you have on your shelf as well? Any you might add? Come talk to me in the comments!
