Top Ten Tuesday new

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

This week’s topic is Most Recent Additions to My Book Collection. This is a constantly changing list but here are the ten latest arrivals at the time of writing. Links from the titles will take you to the book description on Goodreads.

  1. I’ve just finished The Silver Wolf – I thought it was an interesting read, though not a quick or easy one! I really enjoyed Rose Nicolson and I’ve also read The Streets, although I can’t remember much about it now. Happy reading!
