Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf

 

 


 



Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the theme is The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf (Maybe share your holiday book haul?).


I don't really ask for books for Christmas, so my list today is a combination of the last books I added to my Kindle and the two books I did get! Let's start with those




Christmas: Feasts and Treats by Donna Hay - The Raspberry Swirl Pavlova I made for our family Christmas dinner comes from this book.

Baking Yesteryear: The Best Recipes from the 1900s to the 1980s by B Dylan Hollis - I love the videos that this author makes where he tries out some truly ...interesting... recipes from the past!





Make a Wish by Nicola Marsh - This is a very, very short story which serves as a prequel to a book called Did Not Finish. On the basis of this, Did Not Finish could be a lot of fun.

My So-Called Sex Life by Lauren Blakely - This was a freebie!






Inheritance by Nora Roberts - It's been an age since I read or listened to a Nora Roberts book, so I picked this one up on audio.

The Austrian Bride by Helen Parusel - This is a review book for January.





Foxden Acres by Madalyn Morgan - This was a freebie too. I picked it up because it sounds really interesting.

The Christmas Trip by Sandy Barker - This is a follow up to The Christmas Swap which I read a couple of weeks ago.





Lola & The Man by Elise Darcy - Bought this one for the cover, which is ironic seeing as my Kindle only has a black and white screen.

The Last Phone Booth in Manhattan by Beth Merlin and Danielle Modafferi  - This was my December First Reads choice


Speaking on 1-clicking, did you see that Stuff Your Kindle is on today! Thousands of freebie books. Not that I really need anymore as I can't get around to reading the ones I already have, but I will still be taking a look in case there is anything interesting.

  1. I haven't ever read a novel by Nora Roberts, but some of them do sound interesting. At one time, I think I even owned one by her. Hope you enjoy all of your recent additions!!

    1. I seem to have quite a few of her books, and when I do cook something from them they are all easier than I would expect them to be, but I don't automatically think of looking at her books when I am looking for something
