Ten Books I Just Added to My TBR

March 31, 2015 Top Ten Tuesday 30

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books I Recently Added to My TBR.

I decided to limit the post just to books I’ve added to my TBR in the last month, then pick the ten from that list that I most want to read. Many of these won’t be published until much later in the year. You also won’t find books like Winter on this list, because if it’s something I’ve been waiting for, I put it on my TBR practically the instant it gets announced!

These aren’t in any particular order, except that I’ve put the ones that don’t yet have a cover toward the bottom (even though I very much want to read them!)


The Liar (Nora Roberts)
H is for Hawk (Helen MacDonald)
Superfluous Women (Carola Dunn)
Deadly Desires at Honeychurch Hall (Hannah Dennison)
Hunter (Mercedes Lackey)
The Sword of Summer (Rick Riordan)
King of Ashes (Raymond Feist)
Closer to the Heart (Mercedes Lackey)
Revisionary (Jim C. Hines)
The Murder of Mary Russell (Laurie R. King)

So what’s new on your TBR list?

      Since I’m number 83 on the library hold list and they are only getting 10 copies, I have a feeling it may be a while before I get to read The Liar!

    • Lark_Bookwyrm

      Thanks! Yes, that one’s high on my list, and so is the Raymond Feist. I got tired of his Midkemia books, but King of Ashes is supposed to be medieval/King Arthur stuff.

      It’s a fun series – the Dunn books, I mean. I haven’t re-read any, but I try to keep up with the series. I might be one book behind; I’ll have to check.

      I love her too, though she hasn’t been as consistently good as she used to be. Some of the books feel like she dashed them off and didn’t spend enough time on them. It will be interesting to see what she does with Hunter.

    OMG! I didn’t know about The Murder of Mary Russell! I guess we have to assume that’s just a title, or Laurie R. King might end up with a “Misery” situation.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

      Laurie is the one who announced the title and publication date on her blog. She’s being very closemouthed about what it means, though. Since I’m pretty sure Mary Russell is the person who “sent” Laurie King the manuscripts (obviously not for real, just in the books), I don’t think she really ends up dead – but I confess I’m afire with curiousity!

      I’m doing that too – I made a list of 20 older books I have to read this year. So far I’ve only read 3 or 4 – oops.

    I actually have the Dennison book on my Kindle *happy dance* The Liar is on my wish list (which seems to be the equivalent of your TBR list* The cover of H is for Hawk looks really familiar, like it might be from a kid’s alphabet book. Good list, and now I have some titles to check out.:)

      Yes, I use “TBR list” to refer to the huge list of everything I want to read. Since my reading is a mix of ARCs, ebooks I buy, and print books both purchased and borrowed from the library, it’s much easier to just keep track on one list with all of it gathered together. I keep it on Goodreads and mark the ones I own and the ones the library has, so when I want to read it I know where to look for it. 🙂

      I agree that H is for Hawk looks familiar, but I can’t imagine they would have used a picture from another book… would they?

      Well, to be fair – these are on my TBR list, not my actual physical pile. Most aren’t out yet, and some won’t be out for months – even next year, in the case of Jim Hines’ Revisionary. But I definitely hope and plan to read them when I can get hold of them!

    • Lark_Bookwyrm

      Thanks, Michelle! Lackey is fun and often good, though she’s not always consistent. I hope you’ll give her a try. I suggest starting with either the Valdemar books (try Arrows of the Queen) or her Bardic Voices series (The Lark and the Wren is book one.)

    O I totally need to look at the description for the Mercedes Lackey Hunter book! I agree ones I am super excited for get auto added. You know I got emailed recently about this “TBR time” site that calculates how long it will take you to finish your current TBR based on how many books you read last year. I put in like 1k books because that is about how many unread books I own and it said something like 6 years to finish! But I always am adding more to my TBR every week!

      Omigosh, I’d be afraid to put in my TBR list! I’ve already figured out it would take me something like 6 or 8 years (more if you count all the books marked “someday”.) And I can’t stop adding books either!

    Is it weird that I cannot help but cringe at reading ”Magnus” in ”Magnus Chase”? It’s just that Magnus Bane is one of my favorite characters of ALL TIME and it’s such an original first name that I’m like, ”There’s no other Magnus in this world.” Hahahah… I’ll get used to it, I guess. Great list! 🙂

      Since I’ve come across Magnus as a name in other books, it doesn’t bother me, but if you’re really attached to that character, I can see where it would bother you. Actually, it’s not an unusual in Scandinavian countries, and was the name of 7 kings of Norway, 1 Danish king, 4 Swedish kings, a number of dukes and a handful of important Romans, and 5 lesser-known saints. I think you’ll get used to it! 😉

    The Hunter looks cool to me! And I don’t even know that Nora Roberts has latest books? Great TBR pile though the titles here are so rare to me. 😀
