Recently Acquired Books from All Sources

We are linking up today with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday. This week's topic: ten books we recently added to our TBR pile.

From the Library:


Winter by Marissa Meyer: The conclusion to the Lunar Chronicles was one of my most highly anticipated books of 2015. I put myself in the queue for the digital audiobook through Overdrive, and received word that it was my turn to check this book out on Christmas Day! Merry Christmas from my library. 

Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly: I've been interested in this book ever since I saw it on NetGalley many months ago. I spied it on the new books shelf the last time I was at the library and snatched it up. 

Becoming Darkness by Lindsey Francis Brambles: You know you are a hardcore library fan when you use interlibrary loan on a semi-regular basis. That's how I got my hands on a copy of this alternative take on World War II.

The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan: Here's another book that I checked out on audio through my library's Overdrive account. I love listening to Rick Riordan's books. 

From Audible:  


Passenger by Alexandra Bracken: And with this book we begin to see the ship theme I've got going on in this post. I pre-ordered this one from Audible. A blue time travel novel? Yes, please. I'm about halfway through and really enjoying it.

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein: This book is brilliant in audio format. As much of Rose's poetry was composed in Ravensbrucke without pen and paper and then recited and memorized by her friends there, the audio version gave the book an added authenticity. 

Review Copies:


Night Study by Maria Snyder: I read Shadow Study last year and it completely renewed my love for the Poison Study series. I'm so excited for this next book. (Out January 26th, 2016)  

The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele: This book features the collision of two worlds, a fantasy world and modern day L.A. I'm intrigued. (Out in June 2016)
Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell: Second ship cover! I have a whole Peter Pan, Neverland, Captain Hook post planned for this one. I'm so excited about it. (Out in February 2016) 

Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman: This novel is the story of the infamous pirate Blackbeard's youth. It sounds really interesting. (Out in February 2016)
