The 10 Most Recent Additions to My TBR

Happy Top Ten Tuesday over at That Artsy Reader Girl!

The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Be-Read List

1. Help Me! One Woman's Quest to Find Out If Self-Help Really Can Change Her Life by Marianne Power

From this article

2. The Tokaido Road by Lucia St. Clair Robson

Recommended by a friend, who read it on her trip to Japan. Historical fiction set on the road between Tokyo and Kyoto.

3. The Muralist by B.A. Shapiro

I've wanted to read this for a while, and it's my book club's next pick.

4. The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters by Priya Parker

Can't remember where I read about this, but I'm intrigued.

5. Sister Emily's Lightship by Jane Yolen

Short stories for adults by Jane Yolen. Sold.

6. Chemistry by Weike Wang

Protagonist getting a PhD, working in a lab, trying to please her Chinese parents--even though none of those describe me, I relate pretty heavily since it's a story similar to mine and those in my peer group.

7. King Solomon's Table by Joan Nathan

Saw in the library, but I think this is one I need to own--one of those cookbook/history books I'm so entranced by lately.

8. Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan

This one doesn't come out till June, but sounds amazing: mechanical dragons, set in China, can't wait.

9. Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell

Les Mis in space--this comes out in March, and I'm there.

10. This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

Another upcoming release that has me by the title. I wish I could remember what list I got it from!
