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.
