Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, where each week bloggers are given a different theme to blog about. My long string of Top Ten Tuesdays is coming to an end, and I think at the end of this month I’ll probably take a break (but there have been so many great topics, right?) This week we’re talking about books we recently added to our TBR piles. If I were to actually show you the last ten books I added to Goodreads, I’m afraid most of them wouldn’t have covers. So instead, I’m going to feature some of my newest additions WITH COVERS. Some of these have already been published, but most have yet to be released:
Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter. I believe this cover was just revealed, and I’m quite fond of it! This sounds so good, a fairy tale based on Russian folklore, but updated to modern times. Releases in September 2016 from Tor Teen!
The Raft by Fred Strydom. An end-of-the-world story that sounds really cool! Everyone on earth loses their memories at the same time. Releases in May 2016 from Talos.
The Memory Wall by Lev A.C. Rosen. I believe this is a middle grade book, but even though I don’t normally read MG, I like the sound of this one. A blend of real life and video games, it looks like fun! Releases in September 2016 from Knopf Books for Young Readers.
Medusa’s Web by Tim Powers. I’m a huge Tim Powers fan from WAY back, but I haven’t picked up any of his newer releases. This one comes out today, and I may just buy myself a copy!
Waypoint Kangaroo by Curtis C. Chen. This “science fiction spy thriller” sounds like a bunch of fun! Plus I’m loving this cover. Releases in June 2016 from Thomas Dunne Books.
What’s Not Yours is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi. Lots of buzz for Oyeyemi’s new short story collection! I haven’t ever read her before, but I think this book would be a nice addition to my Women of Genre Fiction challenge! Releases in March from Riverhead Books.
Red Right Hand by Levi Black. This story sounds really good! Dark fantasy with Lovecraftian overtones, I’m really looking forward to reading this. Releases in July from Tor Books.
Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger. OK, this has “awesome” written all over it! Urban fantasy with bartenders who fight evil with “alcohol magic”!! Let’s ALL read this. Which reminds me, I need to hop over to NG and request this, stat! Releases in June from Quirk Books.
Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente. I discovered the magic that is Valente this past year, and so I’m aiming to catch up on some of her backlist. I’ve heard really good things about this one!
Bite by K.S. Merbeth. I take it from the cover that this is a story about cannibals! There isn’t much of a story description, but I’m hooked. I love post-apocalyptic survival stories, especially those leaning towards horror. Releases in June from Orbit.
So there you have it. Are you planning on reading any of these books?
