Today’s Topic: The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
As if I need to add more titles to the out of control planet that is my TBR list. But I’m nothing if not optimistic. Plus, I can’t resist the lure of a new book. Here are several that are the most recently added.
The London Restoration – With a gorgeous cover like that, I would never pass this one up, even if it wasn’t written by fellow history lover and author extraordinaire Rachel McMillan. Featuring a marriage of convenience between two code breakers just after WWII, I’m already hooked.
Heartless – Tamara Leigh’s medieval romances are always at the top of my must buy and must read list. I can’t wait to read more about the D’Argent men in this fourth of book of this series.
Love and a Little White Lie – Contemporary Indie author (and personal fave) Tammy L Gray is releasing her first book in a couple years and also her first with Bethany House. Tammy excels at writing broken characters with wonderful redemption stories. Plus, she named this heroine January!
A Mosaic of Wings – This historical fiction debut is already generating positive buzz. Set in India, with an educated, intelligent woman ahead of her time with a legacy to uphold, this promises to be interesting.
An Appalachian Summer – Experience has taught me that no matter what this author writes, it’s guaranteed to be thoughtful, rich with details and great characterization. The last book of Gahart’s also told a story of travelling nurses and I loved it. I’m sure this one will be just as good.
The Winter Companion – The final story of this series about a close knit circle of male orphans will finally tell us the tale of it’s most mysterious member – the brain damaged Neville. I can’t wait to see what the talented Mimi Matthews does with his story.
Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish – This is the author’s third release, but she’s already proven herself a master of romantic comedies which just happen to be a personal favorite of mine.
Set the Stars Alight – Based on my past experience with this author, I know I will be getting a lyrical, almost poetical and beautifully written story which plumbs the depths of the human soul. And I do love dual timeline novels.
The Lost Lieutenant – A wounded war hero, a marriage of convenience, set in Regency England and already getting rave reviews – I’m sold. Plus, I can’t resist that cover!
The House at the End of the Moor – An opera singer and an escaped convict both on the run (for different reasons) find each other in the moors meet and decide to help each other. If that is not an intriguing synopsis, I don’t know what is.
Lakeshire Park – To be honest I don’t even remember adding this one to my list and I’m unfamiliar with the author. But I’m a huge fan of Regency romances and I like the concept of having the hero and heroine compete for the same man – one for herself and the other for his sister.
