Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Recent Additions to My TBR

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl is Ten Recent Additions to My TBR.  I mostly keep track of my TBR on Goodreads though I've thought about creating some other kind of system as add-ins can get kind of lost in the mass of books.  I haven't come up with one yet though.  Until then here's the 10 books that Goodreads says I've most recently added to my TBR!

1.  The Light Over London by Julia Kelly - I don't know much about this one but the cover is gorgeous and I've been loving historical fiction lately.

2.   Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro - I'm a little bit on the fence on this one after reading an article by the author of the book.  The story itself is interesting but I'm not sure I need a full length memoir on it.

3.  A Girl Like You (Henrietta and Inspector Howard #1) by Michelle Cox - I know absolutely nothing about this one and don't really remember adding it but it looks like it could be an interesting read so I'm keeping it on the list.

4.  The Lemon Sisters (Wildstone #3) byJill Shalvis - This is coming out later this year (May I'm thinking?) and I've really been enjoying this series by Shalvis.  I want to be sure to remember to pick it up either from the bookstore or the library.

5.   What the Dead Leave Behind (A Gilded Age Mystery #1) by Rosemary Simpson - I read the 3rd book in this series at the end of 2018 and really fell in love so I'm hoping to go back to the beginning.

6.  The Suspect by Fiona Barton - I listened to The Child in 2018 and really enjoyed it and am currently listening to The Widow and enjoying that so I'm looking forward to this newest book.

7.  When We Found Home by Susan Mallery - I've had mixed feelings about Mallery's books in the past but I've been loving her more women's fiction titles lately and this one looks really good.

8.  The Year of Reading Dangerously: How Fifty Great Books (and Two Not-So-Great Ones) Saved My Life by Andy Miller - I know very little about this one but I'm always on the lookout for bookish books.

9.  The Witch Elm by Tana French - I read the first book in the Dublin Murder Squad a year or two ago and enjoyed it though I had severely mixed feelings about the ending but this one sounds amazing and I like that it's a bit of a stand alone.

10.  The Glass Ocean by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White - I enjoyed the previous group effort by these three and this one involves the Lusitania which makes it even more appealing.

What books have you recently added to your TBR?


  1. The Lemon Sisters! I'm excited for that one too. I love that series!

  2. I struggled to get ten I'd got this year as I haven't been buying many!

  3. Great list! The Suspect looks like something I should check out.
    Happy reading!

  4. I've got THE SUSPECT on my list and I've just finished THE WITCH ELM. Hope to have my thoughts about that one up on Friday. I'm trying to decide what to say...

  5. I've been seeing the Suspect around and I'm considering getting that one.

  6. I haven't heard of these! I hope you enjoy them.

  7. I just finished INHERITANCE and I really liked it. It's a pretty quick read. It wasn't the story so much that I found fascinating as it was the philosophical discussions that came about because of Shapiro's experience. It would make a good read for a book club.

    I also really liked THE GLASS OCEAN. I haven't read the other book these three wrote, but it's definitely on my list.

    Happy TTT!

  8. I've seen readers being positive about Light Over London and pretty sure its in my GR list of TBR. I also keep a notebook of books I really, really, want to read!

  9. I am really looking forward to The Lemon Sisters. I am curious about The Suspect since I enjoyed The Widow. I hope you enjoy allof these, Katherine.

  10. The Year of Reading Dangerously sounds interesting. I think I'll add it to Goodreads. 👍✨

  11. Both of these are on my radar. I also have been trying to win The Light Over London at a few different places. I hope one of them picks my name out of the hat. I hope you enjoy these!


  12. The Witch Elm does sound fantastic but I thought I'd at least read In the Woods first. Happy reading!
