Top 10 Books We Recently Added To Our TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Christina's Picks
Sherlock's Sisters: The British Female Detective, 1864-1913 by Joseph A. Kestner
I put a lot of Edwardian history books on my TBR list recently (I won't bore you with them all) but this one I found particularly interesting. I'm really looking forward to reading it.

Ross Poldark (Poldark #1) by Winston Graham
I just started watching the BBC show called Poldark and love it. I'm hoping the book will be good as well.

The Immortal Heights (Elemental Trilogy #3) by Sherry Thomas
I just started reading the series this year and I can't wait to read the conclusion to the series.  

Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty
A modern YA Sherlock and a female Moriarty. I really don't know what to think of this, but I guess the only way to find out if it's good or not would be to read it... or I'll just wait until more reviews for it come out and then decide.

Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee 
Two girls disguised as boys travel on the Oregon Trail towards the California gold rush. It sounds fantastic! And I can't wait to learn more about the Oregon Trail!

Sarah's Picks 
When I Wake by Elizabeth Norris
It will be interesting to see what a modern day Prohibition looks like. Add in a girl stuck between the Feds and the Criminals and you've got the makings for a great story!

The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
There is definitely a recipe for drama when you throw a girl into the life of her new found father... who just so happens to be running for President. I'm very selective with the contemporary's I read but this one sounds really interesting.

Landry Park (Landry Park #1) by Bethany Hagen
One of the reason I added this to my TBR list was because they mentioned it had a bit of Downton Abbey feel (which I am currently obsessing over) and it's dystopian. can't get much better than that!

Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy #1) by Danielle L. Jensen
I've seen this around but have only recently added it to my TBR list. I'm not really sure what my expectations are but the trolls sounds interesting.

Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes #2) by Sara Raasch
I just finished Snow Like Ashes a couple weeks ago and loved it! I can't wait to read more of Meira's adventures (and I really want to see Theron


  1. I have high hopes for Lock and Mori! I love YA retellings and spin offs of classic novels. Andrew Lane writes a really great middle grade series about a young Holmes.
    Here's My Top Ten Tuesday

  2. Ooh, I haven't read any of these books. I hope that you enjoy them though. My TTT!

  3. I haven't heard of a lot of these, but I am excited for UNDER A PAINTED SKY and WHEN I WAKE. They both sound excellent.

  4. Awesome selection here - a lot of them are new to me, but I also want to read The Elemental Trilogy AND Stolen Songbird. I'm actually planning on reading Stolen Songbird soon :) And I still need to get into my copy of Snow Like Ashes >.< Here's my TTT post this week!

  5. Lock & Mori and The Wrong Side of Right are two must-reads for me! They sound so good, and I can't wait to read them. I have yet to read Snow Like Ashes or Landry Park, but Stolen Songbird was a really unique one. I hope you guys love these books once you read them <3
