I’m probably cheating with this one a little. I’m writing this post during National Novel Writing Month in November 2018. (Hi future me!) So here are the ten most recent additions to my list as of 11/3/18.
- This Dog for Hire by Carol Benjamin
I just added this to my to-read list while writing Ten New to Me Authors I Read in 2018. (And yes, I pre-wrote that post too!) This is a cozy mystery with a dog involved, which is pretty much all I need to know to want to pick it up.
- Pointe by Brandy Colbert
I also just added this to my list while writing Ten New to Me Authors I Read in 2018. This author wrote Life in Motion with Misty Copeland, and I enjoyed reading that. Pointe sounds a lot darker and heavier than Life in Motion, but also seems like a very interesting story about a ballet dancer.
- Snowflakes and Coffee Cakes by Joanne DeMaio
I’m a sucker for Christmas and winter themed books, what can I say? I recently went through and added a bunch of Christmas themed books to my list, after discovering that Goodreads lists Christmas as a category that you can browse!So you’ll probably see some more coming up.
- Max’s Christmas by Rosemary Wells
I love Christmas books, and picture books count too!
- The Assistant’s Christmas Wish by Lexi Ostrow
This romance sounds very cozy. Two people who are attracted to each other, but unwilling to admit it, get snowed into a chalet together for a weekend. Yes. Please.
- The Art of Fixing Things, Principles of Machines, and How to Repair Them: 150 Tips and Tricks to Make Things Last Longer, and Save You Money by Lawrence Pierce
I think the title says it all. I’ve always wanted to know how to repair things on my own, but never took the time to actually figure out how. This book sounds like a great way to learn! I found this while browsing a Christmas gift idea list on dodoburd, which advertised everywhere on Pinterest.
- The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe
I was watching an interview of Captain Scott Kelly and he mentioned this book as one of the main reasons he wanted to become an astronaut. So of course I need to read it too!
- Santa Clauses: Short Poems from the North Pole by Bob Raczka
How can you not want to read this book after it’s very clever title?
- Santa’s Favorite Story by HisakoAoiki
I heard about this book via a blog post by the Dating Divas about books that keep Christ in Christmas.
- Itsy Bitsy Christmas by Max Lucado
I also got this one from the Dating Divas post referenced in number 9. I love Max Lucado’s You Are Special, so I’m hoping this one is just as great as well!
So there are my ten most recently added books. I found it quite interesting to recall where I heard of each book and why I chose to add it to my list. I got ideas from websites, YouTube videos, Goodreads lists, and while researching for my blog!
What books did you just add to your TBR? And where to you get your ideas for books to read?
