Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR

So I wanted to have this out way earlier today, but work (and life) got in the way. Which really isn't a bad thing, lol. It's not Wednesday yet (at least where I am) so I'm going to go ahead and put this on here! Top Ten Tuesday meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books I've Recently Added To My TBR

#1 The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende
I saw this one at Half Price Book Store and had to read the blurb. Sounds really cool, definitely on my TBR list.

#2 Spoken For by Alyssa Joy Bethke
A non-fiction book about our identity in Christ. Sounds really good. :D

#3 Radio Girl by Carol Brendler
The 1930s? Radio dramas? Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds? Oh yes!

# 4 God Without Religion by Andrew Farley
Another non-fiction book that sounds really good.

#5 The Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer
I’ve read all of Jane Austen’s regency books. It seems a no-brainer that I pick up a Georgette Heyer book, amrite?

#6 Belle by Cameron Dokey
I love Beauty and the Beast. Of course I want to read this!

#7 Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck
This one just sounds really fascinating. Plus, it has a lot of good reviews on GoodReads.

#8 Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
I’ve read Entwined, another twelve dancing princesses retelling, which was fun. I think it’s time to read this one as well.

#9 The Wild Orchid: Retelling of Mulan by Cameron Dokey
I love fairy tales. I love the story of Mulan. So this was an easy yes.

#10 Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford

This one sounds similar to The Japanese Lover. I only learned about it today but the story sounds touching and quite emotional. I’d love to give this one a try!

What's on your TBR list for 2016? Any books here that you're interested in reading? And if you filled out the Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday meme leave a link so I can check out your choices!


  1. Oh man, The Tiger's Curse has been on my TBR for years! I really need to get around to reading it. God Without Religion sounds really interesting too!

    1. I definitely have some books that have been on my TBR for a looong time. Yeah, I saw a review for God Without Religion on another blog. Looks cool. :D

  2. THE BLACK SHEEP!!!!! It made me laugh SOOOO hard!!

    Princess of the Midnight Ball. I remember seeing that somewhere and thinking that it sounded interesting. I don't know much about the Twelve Dancing Princess's fairytale.

    Ooooooo!! The Wild Orchid sounds cool!!!! I ADORE Mulan!!

    1. Lol! Yep, you inspired me Erudessa with Georgette Heyer quotes. :D

      I love Mulan even though I've only seen the Disney version.

  3. You've got some great books on your list, Faith! I've never read a novel by Georgette Heyer before and I'm a big Jane Austen... Am I missing out on something?! And thanks for pointing me towards 'Belle', really excited to check that one out! :)

    1. I've definitely heard good things about Georgette Heyer! I haven't read her books before so I'll guess I'll find out soon! hehe.

  4. The Japanese Lover, Belle, Princess of the Midnight Ball and Wild Orchid have all been on my TBR list. I hadn't heard of Tiger's Curse before but it's definitely on my list now and so is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.

    Georgette Heyer is one of my favorite authors. Black Sheep is hilarious. Not one of my personal favorites of hers, but very good.

    Mulan... I love that tale. Besides the two Disney movies, I've seen half of the 2009 Chinese movie (I'm finishing it soon) and started the Cdrama Legend of Hua Mulan. I'm only a few minutes into the first episode so I don't have an opinion on it yet. I'm really liking the '09 movie though. It's Chen Kun and Zhao Wei.

    1. Isn't it crazy how fast our TBR lists grows? I seriously read one book and add ten more to my list, lol.

      I keep hearing that Georgette is really good. :D

      Oh man I need to see these Mulan versions! And Chen Kun is in the 2009 movie? Okay, I have to watch it now! Lol.

  5. Love these choices - all being added to my list (although no 10 was already there!) I love fairy tale re-tellings too.

    1. Glad I could add to your TBR, hee! Fairy retellings are definitely my weakness. :D
