TTT: Most Recent Adds to the TBR

This week's TTT topic: Ten Books Added to the TBR Recently

The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalia Snmartin Fenollera 
Release Date: Currently Available
Why I Added It: My friend Ruth Anna gave it a glowing review on Goodreads.

York by Laura Ruby
Release Date: May 16th, 2017 (This is going to be a good day for books.)
 Why I Added It: It is a new book by Laura Ruby. There needs to be no other reason.

Forever a Soldier by Genevieve Turner
Release Date: December 12, 2016
Why I Added It: Genevieve Turner is an auto-buy author for me. It's already pre-ordered. I wanted it as soon as the main character was introduced in Reunited with her Cowboy.

 Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Release Date: March 7, 2017
Why I Added It: My friend Shae brought it to my attention. The synopsis captured me fully. It's fandom plus a Cinderella retelling. Who can resist that???

 Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner
Release Date: May 16, 2017
Why I Added It: I know I don't have to explain this to frequent readers but, IT IS MY FAVORITE SERIES. You may be wondering why it's a new addition to the TBR then. It's because I only officially add a book when it has a release date.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Release Date: Currently Available
Why I Added It: My friend Rachel was highly enthusiastic about it as we were talking books one night while our kids were in choir practice. Then I found my friend Meggie also enjoyed it. 

Isabel Feeney, Star Reporter by Beth Fantasy
Release Date: Currently Available
Why I added It: I don't remember?????? Some one recommend it? I saw it at the library? It looks cute?

Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands
Release Date: Currently Available
Why I Added It: It's a sequel to The Blackthorn Key, which I read for Cybils last year and very much enjoyed. I had no idea there was a sequel until it showed up at the library.

Pretty Face by Lucy Parker
Release Date: February 1, 2017
Why I Added It: I read Parker's Act Like It earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. This one sounds good too.

And the book that does not yet have a cover.

Release Date: Sometime 2017
Why I Added it: It is a retelling of the Evil Queen from Snow White using Asian folklore and written by an own voices author. I. Can. Not. Wait. Also very much looking forward to seeing the cover for it.
