Ten Books I Recently Added To My To-Read List

So, this one was super easy, especially with goodreads!  I really love adding new books to my TBR, so it’s fun to actually share some of them!  I literally went with the 10 most recent books I added. For the most part, it definitely reflects me wanting to read more diversely, and I didn’t realize how many books I added because of it until I started working on this list.

  1. Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison.  I was inspired by last weeks to list re-read it, and added it to my TBR to remind myself to re-read it.
  2. the Soulfinder’s series by Maria Snyder.  I thought about doing each one as its own, but decided against it!  I’m super-excited that she has a new series set in Ixia/Citia.
  3. Hotel On The Corner Of Bitter And Sweet by Jamie Ford.  I’m really intrigued by this book!  It’s about this hotel that has the belongings of people who were sent to Japanese internment camps during World War 2, and it’s been boarded up for decades before opening again.
  4. Out Of Nowhere by Maria Padian.  I added this book about a town in Maine that has a lot of Somali refugees and how this one guy is changed by 9/11 and getting to know his classmates.
  5. A Time Of Miracles by Anne-Laure Bondoux, translated by Y Maudet.  I stumbled across this one while searching for some books that were more diverse, and really liked the premise of this one.  It’s all about the collapse of the Soviet Union, and how this girl is fleeing Georgia, and ends up all over Europe.
  6. Alive In The Killing Fields by Nawuth Keat and Martha Kendall.  I’m looking forward to reading this memoir about a man who lived in Cambodia during the reign of Pol Pot.
  7. Life, After by Sarah Darer Littman.  This book about a family moving from Argentina to the U.S. sounds like a book that I’d really like.
  8. Tell Us We’re Home by Marina Budhos.  3 girls, living a small town, where things get really touchy after one of their moms is accused of theft, sounds right up my alley.
  9. Blue Gold by Elizabeth Stewart.  I’m really interested in this one!  It’s about 3 girls, on three different continents, who are all affected by an increased need for blue gold.
  10. The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier.  It’s a ghost story!  And a mysterious, ancient curse!  What’s not to like?
