Top Ten Tuesday: Books I've Recently Added to my TBR

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

So a lot of the books I've just added to my TBR are books that are coming out in 2016.  And since I already have lists about those books, I'm going to focus on books that I've added that aren't being released in 2016.  Coincidentally, lots of them are graphic novels, so there will be quite a few of them on here.

1. Rat Queens Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N'rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe - I read the first volume last month and loved it!  I cannot wait to continue with these characters.

2. Fables Vol. 2: Animal Farm by Bill Willingham - I also read the first volume of this series last month and I am all over it.  I love fairytales and retellings of all sorts and this one is no exception.  I've just discovered that there are quite a few of these volumes, so I'll be reading this for a while.

3. Runaways Vol. 1: Pride and Joy by Brian Vaughan - I really enjoyed Young Avengers and this is another group of young heroes in the Marvel Universe.  I can't wait to dive into this series and see what happen. (Plus, I'm pretty sure there's a crossover with the Young Avengers!)

4. Wytches Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder - This was recommended to me recently and I thought I would give it a try.  I have been warned that it is frightening though!  She told me she stopped reading it at night about half way through. I will most certainly stick to that advice.

5. The Joker by Brian Azzarello - A friend told me to read this, that this was one of the best Joker stories ever told.  I love a good Joker story, so I'm going to give it a try.

6. A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis - This story looks so intriguing.  Apparently, I've been really interested in creepy concepts recently.  This one is about a girl in an asylum and she doesn't have her voice.  That alone makes me want to read it.

7. Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley - I got this book recently and it sounds so good!  It's about the Bronte siblings and the inspiration for their writing.  It sounds like there's going to be some magical realism in it too.  I love the concept of that!

8. Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe by Tim Leong - This book looks like it's going to be a fun read.  It's full of charts and graphs about comics and a guide to tackling some of the biggest titles.

9. Gotham Academy Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy by Becky Cloonan - I've always liked Batman, and the concept of this series sounds awesome!  I'd love to be in an academy in Gotham.  There's sure to be mischief.

10. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 1 by Alan Moore - I loved this movie, although I know it wasn't received well.  I love the characters and their origins.  I would love to read the series that inspired the movie.


  1. I hadn't seen Worlds of Ink and Shadow before, I am going to have to add that to my list!


  2. Gotham Academy, Rat Queens and A Madness So Discreet are all ones I want to check out too! And that Joker cover is NO JOKE O.O I love The Joker so I can't wait to see how you'll make out with that book!! Oh and I loved the cover for Worlds of Ink and Shadow ♥ Nice selection here Alex^^

  3. I love Fables and I'm currently reading Vol.11. The second volume was one of my least favorites but the series does get really better with the next volumes. I hope you enjoy it :)
