Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Adds to My TBR List

My TBR list is constantly changing. I'm always taking books off as I read them and adding them as I find new titles. So making this post was a challenge. I promised myself I'd include only released books that were recent additions because otherwise there'd be a lot of reminders of books I won't read for months. Also, I promised myself I wouldn't read any of the books in this post until April so they'd still be on my TBR list when this post went live. (I'm really good at writing posts weeks in advance.) So without further delay, here are ten recent additions to my TBR list.

1. A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab
Couldn't finish Vicious, but I loved The Archived and have been told that this is very much a YA/adult crossover. Hopefully I'll like it!

2. Marie, Dancing by Carolyn Meyer
It's no secret that I love Edgar Degas's art, particularly his Little Dancer sculpture. So when I found out there was a YA account of its making, I knew it had to go on my TBR list. I read a children's book about it when I was little so I'm just graduating to something more on my reading level now.

3. Prodigy by Marie Lu
I finally read Legend a few weeks ago, and I'm eager to continue the trilogy.

4. Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman
Pride and Prejudice retelling!

5. Ophelia by Lisa M. Klein
Hamlet retelling from Ophelia's POV (obviously)! *makes grabby hands* I have mad love for Ophelia (Mad. Ha...ha...ha. Please tell me my unintentional pun was funny.)

6. Something Rotten by Alan Gratz
Modern Hamlet retelling with Horatio as the protagonist. Heck, yes.

7. 25 Roses by Stephanie Faris
This looks cute, and I've been trying to read more MG lately.

8. Jewel of the Thames by Angela Misri
It's historical fic and involves Holmes and Watson. Count me in.

9. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
I don't do zombies, I don't do zombies, I don't do zombies.
Oh, to heck with it. It's historical fic, bloggers friends have liked it, and THOSE COVERS.

10. Strings Attached by Judy Blundell
More historical fic because, why not?


  1. Something Strange and Deadly is worth it! I always said no to zombies but its worth it! I hope you enjoy it and the others look just as amazing.

  2. Marie, Dancing looks wonderful!
    Enthusiasm is one of my favorite YA stories. I hope you enjoy it!
    My list:

  3. Hi Emma! This is a great list. I've been wanting to read more historical fiction, so I'll definitely be adding several of these books to my TBR pile. Also I'm a huge fan of retellings, so Enthusiasm and Ophelia are right up my ally. (Your Hamlet pun was very funny. Just wanted to let you know I appreciated it...took a Shakespeare class last semester and it was one of my favorites!) I've also been avoiding Something Strange and Deadly due to the zombies, but it has so many good reviews so I think I'll give it a shot, too. Have you read Judy Blundell's What I Saw and How I Lied? It's another book that comes highly recommended that I just haven't read yet.

  4. A Darker Shade of Magic is on my TBR as well! great list Emma!

  5. Jewel of the Thames by Angela Misri sound like an book I would love. I love Sherlock Holmes <3 A Darker Shade of Magic is one of the book I really looking forward to reading. Heard so many great things about it. Great list you have :)

  6. Great list. I just ordered A Darker Shade of Magic yesterday. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  7. Prodigy is one of my favorite books! I really want to get to one of V.E. Schwab's books soon. Definitely will be reading either A Darker Shade of Magic or The Archived.

  8. Oh yes! Legend, Prodigy and Champion are some of my favorite books! Out of these three I would say Champion is the best, although the ending is bittersweet

  9. I like the looks of The Jewel of the Thames, and A Darker Shade of Magic I have on my goodreads tbr. Nice books!!
