Top Ten Tuesday: Books recently added to my To-Be-Read list

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Recently, I've been adding books like crazy to my TBR list. I'm going to limit this to books I've added in the last three months. Quite a few of these books came from previous Top Ten Tuesday posts.  Let's dive right in.

1. Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson - This book isn't out until July but I've got to put it on my list because it sounds amazing!  A governess that becomes a spy in an alternate history and where the British rule with magic.  Come how awesome does that sound!

2. The Miniaturist by Jesse Barton - The concept of this books sounds great, but mostly I really love the cover.  It's gorgeous!

3. The Fade Out by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips - It's a murder mystery graphic novel set on a film noir set and it sounds amazing!


4. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - Alternate Londons and magic and mayhem sounds so good.  And I've been hearing quite a bit about this author for ages, this book has finally caught my attention.

5. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel - I've heard very good things about this book and the cover is beautiful.  I'm interested to see what it's all about.

6. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - All I know about this book is that its' centered around a girl who went blind when she was a young.  That alone makes me interested enough to read this book.


7. Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts - The Fault In Our Stars meets Eleanor & Park, what more do I need to hear before I decide that I must read this book?

8. S by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst - A friend showed this book to me this weekend and it looks amazing.  I want to read it right now.  It's an interactive read between two people that have written in a book.  I read the first two pages and I already love it.


9. Crimson Bound by Rosamond Hodges - I love fairytale retelling and Little Red Riding Hood is a good one to retell.  I'm hoping this one will be just as good as the other retellings I've read.  This one isn't out yet, but come May, I will be reading it!

10. Cruel Beauty by Rosamond Hodges - Here's the first retelling that this author wrote and I loe Beauty and the Beast.  Hopefully, I enjoy the her writing style because I really want to read both of these books.

  3. Awesome list-- so many good looking books on here. I've been hearing a LOT about A Darker Shade of Magic, and it just sounds so good anyway. And I really ought to get around to Station Eleven and All The Light We Cannot See considering they were on top of almost every Best Of list for last year.
