#SixforSunday

The April theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot is Taking on the TBR pile and today’s prompt is for Recent additions to your TBR pile.  I do love having a physical copy of a book, although I have found myself getting more e-books recently. I used to get my books from a book shop, so it is taking them longer to arrive now that they are coming through the post! The last six books I’ve added to my TBR pile include 5 physical copies and one e-book.

I haven’t read any Melinda Salisbury books yet, nor do I read very many adult books but this one interested me so I thought I’d try it to see what I think.

I love the cover of this one and having read and loved The Unadoptables about a group of orphans, I thought I’d read another story centred on a group of orphans – this one sounds like a great mystery.

I love spooky stories and this one sounds like a great mystery – and there’s a talking stag head and bear rug which captured my interest.

This was actually the last book I bought in a bookshop – a signed copy! I adored the first book, and this one was just as wonderful with old friends and new: a truly magical, heart-warming, humorous adventure.

This one sounds like a darker read for older children – might be one to read in daylight as I’m very easily spooked!

I haven’t read Nicola’s book Bloom yet, but I just had to get this one as the premise absolutely captured me – think I will read this one very shortly.

Have you read any of these? What books have you recently added to your TBR pile?

  1. Okay, wow. I am total book-cover-judger and I am obsessed with some of these. Even your short little blurbs have got me hooked. I think I need to find out what Orla and the Serpent’s Curse is about and The House on Hoarder Hill. Thanks for sharing! I love following your blog!

  2. Ooh, I don’t km w Orla but if its older-end and dark I’m there, look forward to seeing what you think! Interested in your thoughts on Holding Back the Tide too. I have Vengeance and Valour though it’s not top of my pile. And you know I loved both Starfell books – you’ll love book two!

    1. I’ll let you know re Orla! I think Lily really enjoyed Vengeance & Valour. Have you read Holding Back the Tide? I don’t read very many adult books anymore but this one captured my interest! Someone also recommended Melmoth today – have you read it?

      1. She did which is usually a good sign but it’s not grabbed me in itself. Hoping it’ll do a Starfell and pleasantly surprise me!
        No, I haven’t read it but I often think I should try one of her books, I know Charlotte is a huge fan and we often have similar tastes too.
        I haven’t read Melmoth as I read her first book Essex Serpent and found it a bit of a chore with not much reward. That said it was hugely popular and book of the year on work so I’m clearly in the minority!!

      2. I really need to try to read some of my NetGalley ARCS but I think I’ll also try Hold Back the Tide soon! I’ve reserved an audible version of Melmoth on Borrowbox to see what I think and, if I like it, I’ll get the book. I’ve read some mixed reviews of it!
