Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.
Thank you goodreads for making this weeks topic very easy for me. However, I am not the best at keeping track of my tbr list and I often forget to add a bunch of books to the list. So this is a bit of a mishmash of old/new/upcoming releases. I should actually put some order to my tbr list at some point.
1. Risuko: A Kunoichi Tale by David Kudler: Look how pretty the cover is for this book. I stumbled upon this book a few weeks ago and when I read the premise I was hooked. I will jump at any chance to explore a new culture in a book. Japan is close to the top of my list of must visit places and this book sounds like my cup of tea.
2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: I had no idea Laini Taylor had a new book coming out. I loved the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and so I have high hopes for this book.
3. Nameless by Jennifer Jenkins: All I know about this book is that it looks dark and intense and is a game of survival of the fittest.
4. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: One of my most anticipated books of the year. This is one of many historic novels set to come out in 2016 and I can’t wait to see how the brutality and tragedy of World War II is conveyed in this book.
5. Heartless by Marissa Meyer: I’ve known about this book for a while but only added it to my tbr list recently. Fairy-tale reltellings/origin stories + Marissa Meyer = Everything good in this world.
6. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: My copy still hasn’t arrived yet *glares angrily at amazon* but I can’t wait to see if this book lives up to the hype
7. Half a King by Joe Abercrombie: I have no idea how/when this book made it’s way into my tbr pile but the premise sounds all sorts of interesting and morally complex. Sign me up.
8. Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier: Again I don’t actually remember adding this to my pile but it sounds magical so I’ll keep it there.
9. The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith: I love a good coming of age book and I know this book explores a heavy topic so I’m interested in seeing how how that is handled.
10. Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh: Mysterious. Haunting. Witchcraft. What more could you want.
Those are my recent additions to my tbr pile. Which books made it to your list?
