Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books Recently Added To My To-Be-Read (TBR) List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This weeks Top Ten Topic is "Ten Books Recently Added To My TBR List". I'm going to list mostly books that I've just bought or added and hope or plan to read soon. Most have been out for a some time but I either didn't get around to buying/reading them or didn't realize I wanted to read them. Some I came across on other blogs. 

Here are ten recent "new" additions to my TBR pile:

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire & Thorns #1) 
by Rae Carson

I can't believe I haven't read this series yet. It's about time I do.

Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles #1)
by Ellen Oh

The third book in this series is out soon and I figured I'd check it out.

Gilded (Gilded #1) by Christina Farley

This sounds amazing! I don't know why I haven't read it yet!

Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief #1) 
by Livia Blackburne

I've heard a lot of good things about this and I just got an ARC of the second book.

Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy #1)
by Danielle L. Jensen

So many other bloggers rave about this and are excited about the sequel. I felt like I was missing out on something so I finally got it.

Scan (Scan #1) by Sarah Fine and Walter Jury

Ok, I love Sarah Fine and I love sci-fi. 

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis

A Sci-fi Snow White did I miss this one? 

She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick

I've wanted to read this for a while and finally bought it (Book Outlet).

Compulsion (The Heirs of Watson Island #1)
by Martina Boone

I finally treated myself to a copy of this recently. I knew I would eventually.

Positive by David Wellington

This is the only forthcoming book on my list (out 4/21/15), but I NEED it and it's going right in my TBR pile. I discovered it on Beauty in Ruins last Wednesday (WoW post) and it sounds awesome. It's described as "Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome meets World War Z and I Am Legend". HOLY CRAP! YES, PLEASE!

What's on your TBR list?

  3. Stolen Songbird is one I've seen around a lot and it looks pretty great. I've definitely been eying it as well! Also Positive, with that description, does sound pretty amazing!! I'll keep my out on the blogosphere once it comes out to see what people think! Happy reading!

  6. I haven't read any of those but they look right up my alley. Nice list. Here is my TTT list:

  7. awesome list! I've been told to read The Girl of Fire and Thorns! It didn't win the poll of my reader's choice so I put it back on the bottom of my pile. Compulsion is great! I reviewed that at the end of January ( ). I loved it! And I cannot wait until October when the second one comes out! :) Midnight Thief has an amazing and cover and sounds really good.

  8. Great list. I have Girl of Fire and Thorns on my list too. My TTT:

  9. so many fantasy series... I'm really hoping to read Stitching Snow and Positive looks pretty interesting.

  10. I've been meaning to read Midnight Thief for ages! I hope it's good

  11. I own both Compulsion and the Stolen Songbird. I knew this week's topic was going to end up adding more to my TBR pile - Positive sounds great!

  12. Great list! I've got a few of these on my TBR list still too. I swear we need more hours in the day to read. LOL

  13. I still need to read SO many of these myself: Stitching Snow, Fire and Thorns, Prophecy, Midnight Thief AND Stolen Songbird. I think I'll probably get to Fire and Thorns and Stolen Songbird first though :) Awesome selection here^^ Happy reading and thanks for visiting my TTT post earlier!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  15. i'm not as much into the fantasy genre but they all look like good reads! Hope you get to read them soon!

  16. Stitching Snow sounds interesting. I love fairy tale retellings.

  17. I've always liked that cover of Compulsion. I guess it's just really fall and pretty. Stitching Snow also sounds cool. I've been loving fairy tale retellings lately!!

  18. Compulsion has been on my TBR for a while but it sounds so good! Hopefully we both get to read it soon =P

  19. Looks like you're a big fantasy lover, Michelle! The Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy has been on my TBR for *so* long. I really need to pick that up soon.

  20. Great list! Girl of Fire and Thorns is one that everyone seems to love, so I can definitely understand why it's on your list! I recently bought Stitching Snow and I can't wait to read it.

  25. Compulsion and Girl of Fire and Thorns looks really good and I hope you enjoy all the books! Thanks for stopping by our blog :)

  26. Great list! Quite a few are on my TBR pile and a couple, like Stitching Snow and Compulsion, I've started but not finished yet! Absolutely adore She Is Not Invisible but then I'm a huge fan of Marcus Sedgwick.

    Hope you get to read all of these soon :)

  27. Stitching Snow was just so much fun and adorable! I tried to get into Girl of Fire and Thorns but had to put it down. I don't even remember why; I think it was my mood. But I want to try reading it again, because everyone seems to love it AND it's fantasy, which is my favorite genre. And gah, STOLEN SONGBIRD!! I still have yet to read that book, but I've heard it's awesome. I'm planning on binging it and the sequel very, very soon.

    Awesome list!! :)
