Top Ten Tuesday, #7

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday. It’s hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Do visit this fun blog and read all the other lists. It’s a lot of fun and you’ll be sure to add books to your TBR pile. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately. I use Goodreads to keep track of my book life. One of my shelves on Goodreads is devoted to books on my wishlists: books I want to read that I don’t own. So if I’m at a bookstore and  I can’t remember the name of a book, I can consult my wishlist to find it. So, here is my list of ten books that I’ve added to my wishlist TBR since July.

Literary Trips: Following In The Footsteps of Fame Vol. 2ArrowoodBellman & BlackLove, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir

Literary Trips: Following in the Footsteps of Fame by  Victoria Brooks and Arthur C. Clark. I love to go on literary road trips and this book lists some great trip ideas.

Arrowood by Laura McHugh. I love Gothic stories and this is marketed as being one.

Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield. A ghost story, and I’m always looking for new ghost stories in the fall of the year.

Love, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir by Padma Lakshmi. Padma has lived a very interesting life.

The Woman in Cabin 10Ghostland: An American History in Haunted PlacesThe Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware. I read her first novel and liked it well enough that I want to read her latest.

Ghostland: An American History in Historic Places by Colin Dickey. Again, fall means ghost stories for me( I’m on the waiting list at my library.) And I love true stories about hauntings.

Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald. I love books about books and book clubs. And this one is highly recommended.

HomegoingHexSpellbound: The Fairy Tale and the Victorians

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. I put this one on my list long enough ago that I’m not sure why I put this on my wishlist. But looking at the description on Goodreads I see its about two women and the effect slavery has on their families.

Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt, Nancy Forest-Flier (translator). Scary witch story and the Fall go together.

Spellbound: The Fairy Tale and the Victorians by Molly Clark Hillard. I love nonfiction and analysis. so this one about fairy tales and Victorians is right up my alley.

So what do you think of my list? Are any of the books on your list? Let me know in the comments below!
