TTT: Most Recent Additions to my TBR

January 29: The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List

A lot of these come from reading everyone’s Top Ten Tuesdays. Some I already can’t remember why exactly I’ve added it, but something must have caught my eye. I’ve tried to remember what it was that attracted me to each one.

I didn’t want this to be too similar to my recent Top Tens for 2019, so I’ve done 5 upcoming books and 5 already released books I’ve recently added.

The Silence of Bones by June Hur

Set in Korea in the 1800s, where a sixteen-year-old indentured to the police bureau takes a murder investigation into her own hands, delving deep into a restless city swirling with intrigue and secrets, where honor often comes before justice.

A Return of Devotion (Haven Manor #2)

A Return of Devotion (Haven Manor #2) by Kristi Ann Hunter

It’s the second in a series I havent read but I’m interested in the character mentioned here:

Daphne Blakemoor was perfectly happy living in her own secluded world for twelve years. She had everything she needed–loved ones, a true home, and time to indulge her imagination. But when ownership of the estate where she works as a housekeeper passes on, and the new marquis has an undeniable connection to her past, everything she’s come to rely upon is threatened.

To Best the Boys

To Best the Boys by Mary Weber

This one sounds a bit like a YA Handmaids Tale meets Hunger Games, with scientist girls who refuse to step aside for a boy to get the scholarship they deserve.

Miranda in Milan

Miranda in Milan by Katharine Duckett

Queer. The Tempest. Milan.

Duckett reimagines the consequences of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, casting Miranda into a Milanese pit of vipers and building a queer love story that lifts off the page in whirlwinds of feeling“.

This Book Is Not Yet Rated

This Book Is Not Yet Rated by Peter Bognanni

The characters sound quirky and the story sounds bittersweet.

Ethan who works at the crumbling Green Street Cinema and has to learn, along with his eccentric, dysfunctional work family, that fighting for the thing you love doesn’t always turn out like in the movies

A Modest Independence (Parish Orphans of Devon #2) by Mimi Matthews

I read the The Matrimonial Advertisement and loved it, so I’m looking forward to this sequel.

From the gaslit streets of London to the lush tea gardens of colonial India, Jenny and Tom embark on an epic quest—and an equally epic romance. But even at the farthest edges of the British Empire, the past has a way of catching up with you…

Senlin Ascends (The Books of Babel, #1)

Senlin Ascends (The Books of Babel #1) by Josiah Bancroft

I’ve seen a few bloggers I really trust rave about this one, so I’m pretty much going based on that but the summary sound pretty fun too.

Senlin is determined to find Marya, but to do so he’ll have to navigate madhouses, ballrooms, and burlesque theaters. He must survive betrayal, assassination, and the long guns of a flying fortress. But if he hopes to find his wife, he will have to do more than just endure. This quiet man of letters must become a man of action.

Sir Thomas the Hesitant and the Table of Less Valued Knights

Sir Thomas the Hesitant and the Table of Less Valued Knights (Less Valued Knights #1) by Liam Perrin

A medieval comedy that sounds hilarious.

…tells the story of Thomas Farmer who dreams of becoming a knight, sets out to save his brother from the hands of an evil Baron, and uncovers a plot that threatens Camelot itself. Along the way, he befriends a series of misfits including an allegedly reformed evil wizard, a shrinking giantess with a latent gift, a veteran knight with a dark secret, and his best friend Philip the Exceptionally Unlucky.” 

The Earl I Ruined (The Secrets of Charlotte Street #2) by Scarlett Peckham

Another sequel to a book I haven’t read but apparently this has a really great example of an unlikeable, villainess-from-a-previous novel-centric character in the lead.

I, Eliza Hamilton

I, Eliza Hamilton by Susan Holloway Scott

I saw this one in my library and thought it might be a good choice for the Hamilton-inspired readathon I’m running in March.


Have you read any of these books? What book did you most recently add to your TBR?

      1. Weird, I’ve been meaning to read more historical fiction too! I bought Widdershins recently which is supposed to be historical fantasy, so I’m eager to read that in February.

    1. I only have a basic understanding of the plot, I haven’t read it. I think picked up parts through pop culture and other retellings, so it should be interesting!


  2. I’m excited about Mary’s!! It sounds unlike any YA I’ve read, but knowing Mary’s books, I’m sure it’ll be packed full of action and intrigue. 🙂

    Thanks so much for the visit to Finding Wonderland.

  3. The Silence of Bones + This Book is Not Yet Rated both sound like books I’d really enjoy, so thanks for giving me those to add to my list of anticipated releases! And you’re hosting a Hamilton inspired readathon?! Definitely can’t wait for more news on that! 🙂
