Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic by thatartsyreadergirl is the most recent additions to my to-read list so here it goes!

Do You Dream of Terra-Two1. Do You Dream of Terra-Two by Temi Oh

It’s set to be published in March and it’s about a group of astronauts who head out to find another habitable planet for humans. I don’t read enough sci-fi so this will be perfect for that. It may take me a while to get to it though, there are 132 books in front of it!!


Mythos: A Retelling of the Myths of Ancient Greece

2. Mythos by Stephen Fry

I got this book for Christmas so I will be reading it soon, I can’t wait, I love history and learning about it, it’s about Ancient Greek Deities. Stephen Fry is brilliant and a genius so anything by him is a must for me!


Outlander (Outlander, #1)3. Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon

There are nine books so far in the series and I added them all to my list at the same time so I’ve put them all in one entry…it’s not cheating. I’ve been watching the tv show based on the books so I will of course have to read these at some point. The books are ahead of the show which makes a nice change *side-eyes George R.R. Martin*.

400723454. She Lies In Wait by Gytha Lodge

I love a good crime novel, trying to work out the clues along with the detective. This book is about a night in 1983 when a teenager went missing when out with her friends, thirty years later her body is found and the case is reopened. Jonah Sheens is assigned to the case, he has a personal connection to the victim and the suspects. It looks really good and I need a new detective series as I’m almost at the end of Nicci French’s series.

393355665. The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh

In the blurb it describes it as a ‘dystopic feminist revenge fantasy’ so of course it’s on my to-read list! It sounds really interesting, about three sisters who have grown up isolated on an island with their parents, they can’t leave and they’ve always been warned about the dangerous men out in the world. One day their father goes missing and sometime later three men wash up on the island. Psychologically this looks like such a great read. I’m excited about it.

363375506. The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

I saw a few of my friends on Goodreads had read this and wrote raving reviews, it looks so interesting. Like a real life game of Cluedo, not sure I’d want to play though. Aiden Bishop has to solve Evelyn Hardcastle’s murder, until he does he will live that day over and over again, inhabiting a different witness each time.

385309397. The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton

Any book by Kate Morton will make it onto my to-read list, her books are incredible, moving and beautiful. Set in both 1862 and modern day London, Elodie, a young archivist, finds a satchel with a picture of a Victorian woman, somehow she seems familiar. I’m really looking forward to reading this and adding it to my Kate Morton collection.

399654258. Fire and Blood: A History Of Targaryen Kings by George R.R. Martin

Can’t wait to read this, I have my copy, but it’s huge so I can’t take it to work with me! I just need to finish Little Women and then I can read all about the Targaryens.


180458919. Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

This book looks so good, the tv adaptation was a bit confusing and I got a bit bored so I’m hoping the book will be a lot more intriguing.



3506876310. The Home for Unwanted Girls by Joanna Goodman

This book also came up on my Goodreads feed. It looks utterly heartbreaking, it follows the stories of Maggie who fell pregnant at fifteen and was forced to give her baby, Elodie away. Elodie grew up in an orphanage and suffered horribly. This book will definitely break my heart.
