10 Books I've Added To My TBR List Recently

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is 10 Books From X Genre That I've Recently Added To My TBR List, but I've only recently started adding books to my TBR again and in a very limited fashion so I don't have 10 in one genre. There's a lot of crossover with last week's list of anticipated books for the second half of the year, but there are a few I wasn't able to fit on that list, and some that I've heard about since then. I've been putting a few things on my Goodreads To Read list, but more often I've just been requesting them from the library and hoping they don't all come at once.

So, here's 10 books I've added to my TBR (and/or library holds list) recently:

1. The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen by Victoria Alexander
Lady travelers? Scoundrels? SIGN ME UP.

2. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
A coworker posted some snippets of poetry from this book and I couldn't resist requesting it through the library right away. This book is a couple of years old but has had a sudden surge in popularity and I'm not sure why.

3. Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman by Anne Helen Petersen
A forthcoming book about the ways in which female celebrities are pushing the boundaries of what it means to be acceptable.

4. We Are Never Meeting in Real Life: Essays by Samantha Irby
I can't resist the title or cover.

5. Touch by Courtney Maum
This was the one I tagged on at the end of last week's post because I couldn't believe I had forgotten it. A novel about a trend forecaster who sees a shift away from electronics to in-person contact, this sounds super intriguing to me.

6. The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit by Michael Finkel
A few years ago there was a big news story about a hermit being arrested for theft after living alone in the woods of Maine for 27 years, and this book is based on correspondence and visits with the subject, Christopher Knight.

These others I talked about more on last week's list:

7. Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson

8. Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin

9. Jane Unlimited by Kristin Cashore

10. See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt

I'm already worried that my TBR is getting out of hand again.
