I used to join in on the fun Top Ten Tuesday meme on my old site, and thought it might be good to give it a whirl again here! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week: the last ten books acquired! The titles listed can be those received through the library, galleys, publishers, etc. The following ten are a combination of digital galleys, purchases and library items:
1. The Unmapped Sea (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place #5) by Maryrose Wood I’ve been on a tear through this wonderful series! Currently reading book four of this historical/mystery middle-grade series and it’s just getting better and better. (Purchased)
2. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman I am so thrilled to be getting a chance to read Vengeance Road, touted as a Wild West, True Grit style historical/western YA. (Digital galley)
3. Max the Brave by Ed Vere A wonderful picture book from an author/illustrator whose work is bold, vibrant, sly and funny. It will be published in the early fall! (Digital galley)
4. Bone Gap by Laura Ruby I have read and heard tremendous things about this YA title- a blend of mystery, fantasy and magical realism. (Library)
5. The Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz Historical title from the Newbery-award winning children’s writer, already receiving rave advance praise. (Digital galley)
6. A Study in Death (Lady Darby Mystery #4) by Anna Lee Huber I’ve talked about my love of Huber’s mystery series before! I’m waiting for a weekend where I know I will have the time to just sit back for a few hours, relax, and dive in. (Purchased)
7. Where You Came From by Sara O’Leary, illus. Julie Morstad A picture book from an author-illustrator team that I consider to be one of the best in the field. (Purchased)
8. Everybody Rise by Stephanie Clifford The debut novel from a New York Times writer; described as a blend of Bonfire of the Vanities, Prep and Rules of Civility. Intriguing! (Galley)
9. Here by Richard McGuire Considered to a superb and ground-breaking (and genre-breaking) graphic novel, I cannot wait to start on this one. (Library)
10. Your Voice Is All I Hear by Leah Scheier I really enjoyed Scheier’s historical YA debut Secret Letters, so I am thrilled to be able to read title the author’s second novel- a contemporary title dealing with serious issues regarding mental illness. (Digital galley)
What are some of the latest books to make it into your collection/reading pile?
I have seen Bone Gap around so much recently. I am so intrigued! I hope you enjoy these books!
Thanks for stopping by! I now have pretty high expectations for Bone Gap, so fingers crossed! 🙂
I haven’t read any of these, meaning i have some serious work to do. They all sound great!
I feel like that looking at some of the other TTT lists- there is just SO much out there that sounds great! Hope you get to some fantastic reads! 🙂
I’ve just heard about Vengeance Road last week, and since then I’m really impatient to get my hands on it !
Doesn’t it have the coolest cover?! I feel like a very lucky reader indeed 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!
Bone Gap sounds so interesting, and the reception’s been almost universally positive, I think! I also love the sound of Your Voice Is All I Hear. Hope you enjoy them!
Thanks, Mark! It does seem like Bone Gap has praise all around, right? My expectations are pretty high now! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Your Voice… looks really good, just added to TBR list. Thank you! My TTT
Glad you think so! If you like historical YA, Scheier’s debut was very well done 🙂
Bone Gap sounds really good! I’ll have to add it to my TBR.
