Top 10 Tuesday #10: Ten Books I've Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately

This week's Top Ten Tuesday focuses on books that I've recently added to my TBR list.

I haven't had a lot of time to sit down and read over the past couple months, which is just another way of saying my TBR list as pretty much doubled since the spring. Here are ten titles that I've recently added to constantly evolving list.

The first six on the list are the books on the 2016 Giller Prize short list. In previous years, I've read the books in advance of the award night (which happened to be yesterday) and follow along on Twitter for the results. Unfortunately, this year, I didn't get through a single title.

#10: 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad
#9: Yiddish for Pirates by Gary Barwin
#8: The Wonder by Emma Donoghue
#7: The Party Wall by Catherine Leroux, Lazer Lederhendler (translator)
#6: Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeline Thien
#5: The Bad Kind of People by Zoe Whittall

Audiobooks are still working well for me. I can multitask and enjoy a good read. Lately, I've been going with memoirs/autobiographies that are narrated by the author themselves. I find them to be more captivating because you can hear their changes in tone as they go from a happy story to a heartbreaking one. Also, it adds a sense of intimacy because it feels as though the author is speaking directly to you. The two audiobooks I have lined up are:

#4: May I Have Your Attention, Please? by James Corden
#3: Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

Keeping on the memoir theme, the final two books I've added to my list are written by Canadian authors. Funny enough, my earliest memories of both of these men have them dressed in hockey jerseys and were both named Wayne.

#2: Canada by Mike Myers
#1: 99: Stories of the Game by Wayne Gretzky

Really curious to find out what everyone else has added to their TBR recently. Leave a link to your #TTT below and I'll come check it out!

  1. Anna Kendrick is a fabulous actress. Or I've liked her in all that I've seen her in so far. :)

    1. She's fantastic. I cannot wait til it's released. Only a few more days!

  2. I'm also looking forward to getting my hands on The Wonder by Emma Donoghue! :)

    1. It's been really hard passing it by in the book shops. I still have a couple other books to read before I treat myself to the book.

  3. I'd really like to read Anna Kendrick's memoir too.
