This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR. My TBR pile is technically not a TBR pile but a physical-books-on-my-shelf-that-I-still-have-to-read list (versus a want-to-read list of books I want to read but don’t own yet). So I’ll limit myself to my version of the TBR (which, by the way, can be found here).
I added a bunch of books to my TBR after a shopping spree in London last December, and there are a few books I got for Christmas (or bought as a Christmas present to myself).
Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling & illustrated by Jim Kay
This book is so so gorgeous, and I can’t wait to read it (Harry Potter reread #3425). I am saving this for a special occasion.
- The Secrets of the Wild Wood (The Letter for the King, #2) by Tonke Dragt
I love love love The Letter for the King, which I read last year. I put this on my Christmas wishlist but Santa didn’t deliver 😉 so I bought it myself in January.
- Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike, #3) by Robert Galbraith
I got The Silkworm and Career of Evil for Christmas, and started reading the first one almost right away. I loved it (much more than the first volume) and I can’t wait to start on this one!
- Half the Day is Night by Maureen F. McHugh
This one I bought back in August, actually. You all know how much I love China Mountain Zhang. This doesn’t get the same high ratings as China Mountain Zhang though, but I’m looking forward to reading it.
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker
This had been on my wishlist for a while, and I was happy to find it on sale in London.
- The Teahouse Fire by Ellis Avery
Another book that had been on my wishlist for a while and that I found in London. I’m looking forward to reading it!
- Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman
A Christmas gift!
- Hyperion by Dan Simmons
This was dumped on our local book dump table, along with volume two. One of my colleagues / fellow book club members found it and insisted I take it home.
- The Whisperer in Darkness by H.P. Lovecraft
A random buy from London. It was cheap, and I am embarrassed to say I still haven’t read any Lovecraft, so it came home with me.
- A Riot of Goldfish by Kanoko Okamoto
I’m always on the look out for Japanese literature. Another London find!
