Top 10 Tuesday: 10 Newest Addition to my TBR

This week's Top 10 Tuesday is the 10 newest addition to the TBR pile.

This will pretty much be a reflection on very early morning purchases that are often prompted by receiving the Bookbub email. I did sign up for Bookbub a long time ago, but then I unsubscribed. About a year ago I signed up again and now I find myself adding new books to my Kindle at a rate faster than I can even think about reading them! I'm sure I am not alone in this.

Anyway, here are more last ten additions to the new TBR pile:

Road Trip to Happiness by Maggie Mundy - This is the first example of a Bookbub inspired purchase at 4am. I got this because I like the sound of a road trip across Australia. Come to think of it my current read is a travel book too. Maybe there's a theme developing here.

The Family Next Door by Sally Hepworth -I know a lot of  people who love Sally Hepworth's books but I haven't actually read on myself so I thought I would start with this one.

Hello Stranger by Lisa Kleypas -  The next book in the Ravenel series. Also a non Bookbub purchase.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - I mentioned recently that I needed a book to get completely lost in and so I purchased this book. I didn't get as engrossed in it as I hoped, but in the end I enjoyed it a lot.

Gut by Giulia Enders - It turns out that I am not only a sucker for Bookbub deals, I am also partial to an Audible Daily Deal too. Now I am wondering why I bought it. I think I saw someone talk about it somewhere!

Rolling with the Punchlines: A Memoir by Urzila Carlson - I enjoy seeing Urzila Carlson on TV and then last year took the opportunity to see her live show, so I am hoping that this will be an interesting read. She certainly seems to have an interest story to tell.

The Irish Cottage by Juliet Gauvin - Hmmm. I don't even remember buying this one! I'm sure there was a reason.

Beautiful Fragile by Michelle Montebello - Not too long ago I read The Quarantine Station by this author, which was her first foray into Historical Fiction. I really enjoyed it so thought I would read some of her other books.

The House of Brides by Jane Cockram - This is the February book for the online bookclub that I am. In theory that means that I have a few weeks to read it. Hopefully I'll get to it.

The Vineyards of Champagne by Juliet Blackwell - This was a rare purchase for me as I actually preordered it. I have seen this book all over the place and now I am very keen to read it.

Actually it turns out that there aren't as many 4am purchases as I thought. More deliberate conscious decisions than impulses!!

    1. A little bit of this and a little bit of that!

  2. I am waiting for a good deal on The Vineyards of Champagne. I'm eager to hear what you think about it.

  3. I need to read these. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I subscribe to a number of those discount book lists and should probably unsubscribe. I usually delete them unopened these days. Best not to be tempted! LOL

    I just read another Family Next Door novel by a different author, but Hepworth's book keeps popping up, and now I want to read that one too. Haha. I want to read The Vineyards of Champagne as well. I hope you enjoy it and all these books!

    1. I used to never open them but its now become part of my 4 in the morning routine. I should just try sleeping right?

  5. None of these are on my TBR, but I hope you enjoy these!

  6. That type of subscriptions is definitely dangerous for your TBR, at any time if day of night, lol! I have seen a lot talking about the last one on your list. Enjoy!

  7. FANGIRL is a fun one. I'm also going to be reading THE VINEYARDS OF CHAMPAGNE soon for a blog tour. I'm looking forward to it. I've also heard good things about Hepworth, but I haven't given her a go yet.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

    1. I'll be interested in hearing your thoughts on that book!

  8. The Irish Cottage sounds intriguing! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.
