Top Ten Tuesday : Most Recent Additions to My Book Collection

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is:

Most Recent Additions to My Book Collection

For this week’s theme I’m going to highlight the last 10 books I’ve received for review.  Nice and simple with links to Goodreads and covers where available:

A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham – I read a rave review (here) for this at the Bibliosanctum so can’t wait to pick it up.


Sea of Tranquility by Emily St John Mandel, I’ve loved everything I’ve read so far by this author so this was an absolute no-brainer for me.


A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross – billed as Crescent City meets Uprooted – how could I resist?  I couldn’t.  Plus, this was a wish granted, woohoo!


The Maid by Nita Prose – which I’ve already read and loved.  My review is here.  If you want a quirky and original character and a closed room cosy mystery in a grand hotel then the wait is over.


Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins which is so far proving to be a page turner – watch this space for a review soon.


Stringers by Chris Panatier – I can’t wait for this because I adored The Phlebotomist


Traitor in the Ice by KJ Maitland – Drowned City was very good and I was hoping for more from Daniel Pursglove and the world he inhabits.


Small Angels by Lauren Owen – no cover for this one yet but it sounds absolutely incredible with hauntings and malicious spirits. *chills*

Black Tide by KC Jones ‘It was just another day at the beach. And then the world ended.’


The Origin of Storms by Elizabeth Bear, I’m loving this series and this is the third and final instalment.

    Oh my! A River Enchanted has such a lovely cover and Crescent City meets Uprooted?? Yes!!

  2. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    The new Panatier book is the one I’m most looking forward to, since I also loved the Phlebotomist 🙂

  3. Tammy

    I’m so excited for Sea of Tranquility, Black Tide and Stringers😁

  4. Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies

    I’m looking forward to Sea of Tranquility!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I don’t know what to expect from this book, I’ve not even read the description, but I know I’ve loved this author’s previous work so I feel like this one will be a hit for me.
      Lynn 😀

    I hope you will enjoy all of these!

    Nice list. Curious to read your thoughts on the latest by St John Mandel.
    Here is my list:

    • @lynnsbooks

      I can’t wait to start that. A very unusual author who writes such complex and satisfying stories that, to be honest, just work so well. Lynn 😀

  7. Greg

    Both The Maid and Reckless Girls are top of my list to read.

    Looks like you have a lot to look forward to here. I love that cover for Traitor in the Ice. Have I missed out by not reading Drowned City? (it would only be one more book to want to read after all :D).

    • @lynnsbooks

      I enjoyed Drowned City and I’m hoping this will be a really solid period series. I’m not sure at this point whether Traitor in the ice works as a standalone or not – it wouldn’t surprise if it did though. (although, as you say, it’s only one more book to add to the tbr).
      Lynn 😀

  9. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Yay, so glad you’re gonna give Flicker in the Dark a shot!

  10. mervih

    I haven’t yet started the Lotus Kingdoms, but since the third book is out soon I really should

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, now could be a good time – the third is clearly in sight.
      Lynn 😀

    There’s a new book by Emily St. John Mandel? I’ve missed that! Will have to take a look for sure.

    Hope you had a good week Lynn and thanks for visiting our TTT!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Hi Mareli. I did have a good week and my reading and blogging seem to be getting much more active again. Hope you’re good too? I was excited to see a new book by Emily St John Mandel – you just never know where that author is going to take you but you can usually rest assured that you will like it.
      Lynn 😀

    I hope you will enjoy all your new books, Lynn. I particularly like the sound of The Maid.🙂
