Top Ten Tuesday: Recent TBR Additions

Image
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and it's a way to share what you're loving in list form. The topic changes every week, so there is always something new to discover!
This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books That Have Recently Been Added To My TBR.  I am horrible at adding books, willy nilly, to my TBR.  It's ridiculously (and embarrassingly) massive, but I can't seem to bring myself to stop!  People need to just quit writing books I want to read....  Regardless, here are the last ten I added:

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommendby Katarina Bivald
Passenger (Passenger 1) by Alexandra Bracken
The Siren by Kiera Cass
This Is Where It Endsby Marieke Nijkamp

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spyby John le Carre

B.O.B. Would You Rather...

Day 2 of the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon has commenced and I'm finally getting around to participating in my first mini challenge of the week.  Woohoo!  Today's mini challenge is hosted by Lori @ Writing My Own Fairytale.  This one is super simple and pretty straight forward:  answer the Would You Rather question.  Here we go!

Would You Rather...Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers?
I would much rather have someone who dog-ears pages borrow my books.  As a dog-earer myself (I'm really trying to be better about it), it wouldn't bother me as much.  I hate when there is something spilled on books or food/bugs smudged in them.  It disgusts me!  Though Cheetos are delicious...mmmWould You Rather...Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one of author of your choice?
An author of my choice, no question.  JK Rowling, I'm coming for you!Would You Rather...Never be allowed in a book store again or never be al…
