Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Recent Reads From My TBR List

March 31, 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Ten Books You Recently Added to Your To-Be-Read List. If you follow me on Goodreads, you know that I am constantly adding books I’m interested in reading. Below are the ten that I’ve added most recently with the greatest appeal to me (at this moment in time….I am quite the mood reader and on certain days, some books will not appeal to me). Click on the link to be taken to the Goodreads summary.

YOUNG ADULT SELECTIONS:

The Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Patterson – This is a book that Trent Reedy raves about all of the time that holds special meaning for him. I don’t think I’ve actually read it, but I definitely want to!

Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman – I am currently listening to Shusterman’s Unwind, and I am loving the unique concept behind the book. His newest book is getting strong reviews, and I’d like to check it out!

Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes – This mystery/thriller sounds like a page turner!

Silent Alarm by Jennifer Banash – Another book that is getting rave reviews, but is supposed to be a highly unsettling read revolving around a school shooting.

CONTEMPORARY FICTION

Give Me Your Answer True by Suanne Laqueur – Oh how I loved The Man I Love. I can’t wait for Laqueur’s new book to be released in June, which is a retelling of her previous novel by a different character, but is supposed to be very different!

The One That Got Away by Bethany Chase – Today is release day for this book. This looks like a light, easy read that might be perfect when you need to chill out!

Delicious Foods by James Hannaham – This is not so light of a read, but gets good reviews. A look at drug addiction and family dynamics.

HISTORICAL FICTION

Mademoiselle Chanel by C.W. Gortner – This new release is getting rave reviews across the blogs. I know very little about Coco Chanel, but the blurbs I’ve read sound intriguing. Can’t wait to check this out!

NONFICTION

Triumph: Collected Stories of Gone Girls and Complicated Women by Lizzie Harwood – This collection of short stories sounds like it can be edgy. Sometimes I love a little edge :)

Resilience: Two Sisters and a Story of Mental Illness by Jessie Close and Pete Earley – A book about Glenn Close’s sister Jessie, and her struggle with bipolar disorder. It details their early years of growing up and the relationship between the two women as Jessie battles her disorder.

My TBR is all over the place – I do enjoy a wide variety of books!
