This is a meme that’s hosted every Tuesday by The Broke and the Bookish and they’re actually on hiatus at the moment (back next week!) so I’m making up my own theme which is the Top Ten Books Most Recent TBR Additions.
1. Rage Against The Night by Collected Authors
A collection of short dark horror stories by authors like Stephen King.
2. Shake Hands With The Devil by Lt. Gen. Roméo Dallaire
Dallaire was the force commander in Rwanda during the genocide in 1994, this is his autobiography of his time there.
3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
Loved the Harry Potter books when I was younger, hoping this one engrosses me just as much.
4. The Silo Effect: The Peril of Expertise and the Promise of Breaking Down Barriers by Gillian Tett
A book for work that may give insight on how to get seemingly unrelated teams to work together effectively.
5. Far North by Marcel Theroux
The Earth has turned into an arctic desert and humanity has all but vanished.
6. Baker’s Boy by J.V. Jones
A tale of royalty, knights and sorcerers. I saw a good review on this by another blogger so thought I’d check it out.
7. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari
Once upon a time there were six human species, now there’s just us. This talks about how that came to be.
8. Seveneves by Neal Stephenson
The world ends, humans end up dividing into seven distinct races. I like Neal Stephenson’s work so hopefully this will be as good as his previous works.
9. The Mind Club by Daniel M. Wegner and Kurt Gray
This book talks about our minds and why we are the way we are in terms of things like why we love some animals and eat others, why religion is such a hot topic, things like that.
10. Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own by Kate Bolick
An interesting look at why so many women are choosing to remain unmarried, and how this can be fully embraced. If of course, it’s what you want!
