Top 10 Tuesday - Books Recently Added to TBR

The Top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found here.   Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading.  I have been doing these for several weeks now and found that I enjoy it and love seeing what others have on their lists.  This week we are looking at the books recently added to my TBR - this isn't hard as I am always adding books I see on other sites so I don't forget about them.  These are in no order and I am sure there are many more.

1.  Lawyer for the Dog: Lee Robinson.  This cover caught my eye and the story sounds interesting.  It is about a sharp lawyer from South Carolina who finds herself appointed as Sherman the dog's attorney during a messy divorce.

 2.  Silver on the Road: Laura Anne Gilman.  I recently saw this one and it is about a 16 year old who ends up working for the "devil" in Mississippi.  Too bad it doesn't come out until September.  But when it does, it will go straight on the pile.

3.  I, Ripper - A Novel: Stephen Hunter.  I love this cover and the book promises to take you into the mind of Jack the Ripper.  Sounds so intriguing and I just have to get my hands on it.

4.  Marrow: Tarryn Fisher.  "In the Bone there is a house.   In the house there is a girl.  In the girl there is a darkness."  Yep, sounds like a possible winner to me.  

5.  A Robot in the Garden: Deborah Install.  "A story of the greatest friendship ever assembled."  I have heard some good things about this book and it was recently released so I can't wait to start it.

6. Reluctantly Charmed: Ellie O'Neill.  What's a list without a witchy book on it?  

7. London Falling: Paul Cornell.  I love books set in the London area and recently saw this on someone's haul and when found out my library carries a copy, saw no reason not to at least try it.  It is about supernatural beings and the occult.  

8. No One Gets Out Alive: Adam Nevill.  This one comes out this month.  It is classified as paranormal horror so that works for me!

9.  Something Red: Douglas Nicholas.  I have seen this on a few blogs lately because I think the final book in the trilogy is due out soon.  I am not completely sure what it is about, but I love that cover and want to give it a try.

10.  Heap House: Edward Carey.  I have seen this described as "
Dark, gothic and very Tim Burton-esque" by a Booktuber I trust and I do love me some gothic!

So have you read any of these?  I am scared to see how many get added to my list through looking at other's Top 10 List this week.  Have a great reading week!


  1. There aren't enough good books set in the UK. I'm always looking to try some. Hmmm, maybe a top ten list of good british set horror/urban fantasy is in order...

    1. Sounds like a great idea. I would be interested in seeing that list as well :)

  2. I haven't heard of any of the books on your list - yay, for some new books to check out! - Kat from Spruced Up Life

  3. I love, love, love LONDON FALLING! It does have a bit of a rocky start but if you stick with it it is SO fabulous!

    I'm diving into the third SOMETHING RED book this week (day after tomorrow if all goes well). And I'm really looking forward to that Adam Nevill title next month!

  4. Glad to hear you liked some of my choices. It makes me more excited to read them. Thanks for visiting my blog Becky!

    Happy reading!

  9. I've never read any of these, but LAWYER FOR THE DOG sounds interesting.
