Top Ten Tuesday: What’s New?

Hooray hooray, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! First of 2020, and we’re sharing the most recent additions to our bookshelves! Nice easy one to ring in a new year with…

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

So this week’s list for me is a mix of books I bought, plus books I was given as gifts over the holidays/for my birthday in December. And to make it a bit easier to sort through them all, I am sticking to physical copies, heh!

First up, the gifts!



Catfishing on CatNet by Naomi Kritzer – I recently read this, and absolutely loved it! Still working on a review now that I’ve more or less recovered from the holiday season, so stay tuned, but OMG.

Over The Top by Jonathan Van Ness – This one’s a departure from my usual SFF fare, but I enjoy those every once in a while! Looking forward to reading this one.

Want by Cindy Pon – This is one from the “I should probably have bought it ages ago” section of my TBR, but I’m super excited to get around to it!



Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – Another recent read, and another newfound favourite! I am absolutely planning to buy The Crooked Kingdom and find out how this duology tale ends, ASAP!

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – This was a gift from my dear imyril, and I am SO SUPER EXCITED to read it. Hard to believe I haven’t read one of Silvia’s books before, but I am certainly looking forward to correcting this!

The Modern Faerie Tales by Holly Black – New edition, classic Holly stories! After reading and loving her Folk of the Air trilogy recently, I am all about getting into her other books.



The Owl Service by Alan Garner – This was a birthday gift to myself (along with Six of Crows) after I got a Waterstones gift card, and I picked this on another of imyril’s recommendations. It sounds spooky and intriguing, which I am here for!

Behind The Throne by K.B. Wagers – I worked that gift card good, folks. Been eager to read this for a while, thanks to a lot of positive Twitter chatter from like-minded nerds.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – Another one from the Recently Read pile, and it’s what convinced me to dive deeper into Bardugo’s work! Worth a read if you’re here for her adult stuff.

A Song For a New Day by Sarah Pinsker – I ordered this via Portal Bookshop a few months ago, because I am a fan of Sarah’s short fiction and knew I had to have her first novel in my grubby nerdy mitts as well. Can’t wait to read this one!


So that is my list for the first Top Ten Tuesday of the new year! What do you think of my choices? Read any? Planning to read any? Interested in any that are new to you? Comment away!
