Mount TBR


Every Tuesday over at  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  This week’s topic is:

10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List 

I decided to drop the ‘x genre’ and just go for twelve books that I’ve added on the basis of blogger recommendations.

So here are my last 10 book purchases:

  1. Blood Oath (Sawbones Book 2) by Melissa Lenhardt – okay, I haven’t read the first yet but now I have both waiting to be read and I can’t wait!
  2. Just One Damned Thing After Another: Time Travel Meets History In This Explosive Bestselling Series (The Chronicles of St Mary’s Series Book 1) by Jodi Taylor
  3. The Exiled Heir by Jonathan French – I enjoyed his Grey Bastards so much that I thought I’d check his other work
  4. Within the Sanctuary of Wings by Marie Brennan (this is the last of the series – which means I can now read the last two back to back.  Happy days.
  5. The Waking Fire: Book One of Draconis Memoria (The Draconis Memoria 1) by Anthony Ryan
  6. A Red-Rose Chain (Toby Daye Book 9)
    Seanan McGuire
  7. Shades of Milk and Honey (Glamourist Histories Series Book 1)
    Mary Robinette Kowal
  8. Harvest Home by Thomas Tryon
  9. Strange Star by Emma Carroll
  10. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

    I’ve had Shades of Milk & Honey sitting on my shelves for what seems like forever! Also really want to get to Marie Brennan’s, and Seanan McGuire’s…

      So many books eh! Still, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

    I STILL have only read the first Toby Daye book – but I’m trying to focus on some of the series I’ve started and get them completed before moving forward with others. That’s the theory anyway… I love this list, Lynn – the Anthony Ryan book looks wonderful…

    • @lynnsbooks

      It does look good – I’m looking forward to picking some of these up.
      Lynn 😀

    I ordered Strange Star a few months back. I really need to start reading some of the physical books I own instead of being tied to arcs and my Kindle so much. Great list.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, that’s how I feel too but then I feel that I have to read the review books first – which is why I’m requesting a heck of a lot less.
      Lynn 😀

    I have checked out the first Toby Daye book from the library multiple times. I have every intention of reading it at some point.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Eventually – I’ve checked out so many books from the library and then had to return them before I got a chance to read them.
      Lynn 😀

    I love that you have a few older books. Thomas Tryon, I haven’t heard that name in a while! And Tuck Everlasting is a wonderful classic. Happy reading:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      I can’t wait to read Tuck Everlasting. I’m trying to be reasonable with my review books. My real aim is to try and read a couple of my own books each month – you wouldn’t think it sounds that difficult but then you see these great books coming up and you just want them!
      Lynn 😀

  6. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    It’s been a while since your last Toby Daye read-along, so I’m glad to see A Red Rose Chain in your collection for today: I look forward to your thoughts on the new chapter of Toby’s adventures 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I so want to get to that one. Love that series – did you see the latest one up on NG?

  7. jessicabookworm

    I haven’t read any of these, but I think I’ve already mentioned that I have a copy of Just One Damned Thing After Another, metaphorically, gathering dust in my Kindle’s TBR folder 😛

    • @lynnsbooks

      I have a few books gathering the very same dust on my kindle – they’re so much easier to forget than the physical copies.
      Lynn 😀

  8. Lisa (@TenaciousReader)

    I think you’ll really enjoy Shades of Milk and Honey (assuming you like Jane Austin)

  9. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Holy crap, I did not know about The Exiled Heir?! I was so impressed with The Grey Bastards that I’m going to have to look into this one as well. Maybe it’ll tide me over until we get the Grey Bastards sequel 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      That was my very thought in buying a copy. Why not give The Exiled Heir a shot whilst I wait for more of the Jackal. Still living in the saddle!
      Lynn 😀

    I have such a crush on Lady Trent 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Excellent – she’s a wonderful character to read about so I can’t really blame you! 😀

  11. Greg

    I need to read the Brennan books soon, and Just One Damned Thing has caught my eye a few times as well, but I haven’t tackled it yet. Both are on my TBR and look awesome.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I spotted One Damned Thing over on Brainfluff and so thought I’d pick up a copy. The Brennan books are great – and the covers are just awesome.
      Lynn 😀

    Harvest Home! I have such a soft spot for that book 🙂 I found it on my Grandma’s bookshelves when I was a teenager, and I acquired it from her when she expressed surprise that it was there at all (I think it must have been one of my Mum’s when she was a teenager!)

    • @lynnsbooks

      That’s a great story – I can’t wait to read that one now. Most of (if not all) these books are from blogger recommendations but other than adding them to my wishlist I don’t know where the recs came from -perhaps I read about this book on your blog and loved the sound of it?
      Lynn 😀

      • imyril

        Maybe 🙂 it made my ‘I don’t like horror but I like this’ list last Halloween I think 🙂

  13. Nicola @ Thoughts on Fantasy

    I’m curious to hear your thoughts on Shades of Milk and Honey – I heard about that book quite a while ago, I’m not sure how, and the cover and premise stuck in my mind… haven’t read it yet though.

    • @lynnsbooks

      TBH I heard about it along time ago and added it to my wishlist. Eventually I decided to winnow my list down a little and so removed it but then following a glowing review from another blogger who I follow I decided to add it back.
      Lynn 😀

      • Nicola @ Thoughts on Fantasy

        Ah okay, it sounds like your history with it is really similar to mine then! I had it on my to-read list, then removed it when trying to reduce the list, then saw you mention it (and that positive review) and thought maybe I should actually read it after all 🙂

      • @lynnsbooks

        Haha – nice one 😀

  14. Amanda @Cover2CoverMom

    I read Sawbones last year and really enjoyed it! I need to pick up the second book. I ADORE the movie Tuck Everlasting, but I hear the book has a very different feel… Looking forward to hearing what you think of these books 🙂
