Top Ten Tuesday [16]: New on My Shelves

dsc00889


I’m glad I decided to check out the prompt for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. I was about to draft my latest Hoarders post only to realize I can kill two birds in one stone. So the prompt is about top ten books you’ve recently added to your TBR and since I’ve not done a Hoarders post in the last couple of weeks, I thought I might as well.

The Burning World by Isaac Marion

This is the sequel to Warm Bodies. I don’t know if y’all remember the most sentient zombie in the history of zombies, but R was one of a kind. I thought Warm Bodies was really good so when Simon & Schuster emailed me about this book, I agreed gleefully. Release date: February 2017

The Rain by Gregg Hurwitz

This has an interesting premise that has me thinking of that movie, Purge with rabid adults terrorizing the young uns. I knew I had to read it.

The Killer Within [Killer Instinct, #2] by S.E. Green

Truth be told, I didn’t quite enjoy Killer Instinct but since the sequel was on sale, I figure I might as well see if there was any improvement. Let’s hope.

A Barricade in Hell [Delia Martin, #2] by Jaime Lee Moyer

I haven’t read the first book to this series, but I found this on the sale shelves of my bookstore. I don’t know much about this book. I know there’s a girl who has the ability to see ghosts or the afterlife and that it’s set in the 1900s. I just like seeing a completed series on my bookshelves, that’s all. Lol.

Still Life With Tornado by A.S. King

Is it bad that I haven’t read a single book by A.S. King? Well, I now own three of her books. I need to stop buying them and letting them sit on my shelves unread. #bookhoarderproblems

Frost by M.P. Kozlowsky

This book is giving me a Cinder vibe with a mix of Rapunzel so of course, I had to get it.

Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton

This book hasn’t been getting OMG-THIS-BOOK-IS-AMAZEBALLS reviews but I’ve always been fascinated with the life of a diplomat so I knew I want to read this.

The Fixes by Owen Matthews

This is an LGBTQIA book that I’ve recently found when I followed Steve Donoghue on YouTube. He’s unintentionally funny and brilliant at the same time. He’s not your typical book tuber for sure but he reviews non fiction usually about history. I don’t know why I’m so fascinated by him. Anyway, he gets an eclectic mix of books for review from a lot of publishers but he rarely gets YA. It’s almost incongrous when he does.

Gemina by Amy Kauffman & Jay Kristoff

I haven’t read Illuminae (I know, I know!).

Missing You by Harlan Coben

I’ve always wanted to read his books so when I saw this on the sale shelf, I wanted to grab the chance.

So there you have it. All new books on my shelves that I’ve picked up in the last couple of weeks.

What’s in your list this week?
