Top Ten Tuesday – New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2022 

 Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2022. This should be fairly easy for me as I take part in a lot of Blog Tours – all of which are new to me authors plus Instagram makes me try lots of new books. My only problem will be cutting it down to 10!

Ali Hazelwood Book Review – The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

I have got Love on the Brain to read and also have my eye on her other novellas!

Laura PurcellBook Review – The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell

I really enjoyed this book and at some point want to read some of her other books.

J TaylorRandom Things Blog Tour – Book Review – A Moment on the Lips by J Taylor and Book Review – A Moment On The Lips At Christmas by J Taylor

I loved the first book and jumped at the chance to read the christmas one!

Julie CaplinBook Review – The Little Cafe in Copenhagen by Julie Caplin and Book Review – The Little Paris Patisserie by Julie Caplin

I heard about this author from Secret Library Book Blog. I was so pleased that there was a whole series that I could make my way through. I asked for the latest one for Christmas and I am looking forward to making a start on it.

Tessa BaileyBook Review – It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey and Random Things Blog Tour – Book Review – Hook, Line and Sinker by Tessa Bailey

I saw It Happened One Summer on Instagram and then jumped at the chance to be on the Blog Tour for the second book.

Elena ArmasBook Review – The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas

This was a popular one on Instagram. There are other books by this author that I would like to try at some point.

Antti TuomainenRandom Things Blog Tour – Book Review – The Rabbit Factor by Antti Tuomainen and Random Things Tours – Book Review – The Moose Paradox by Antti Tuomainen

I randomly saw The Rabbit Factor as a Blog Tour potential and was pleased to be accepted onto it. I then saw that the second book was also available as a Blog Tour and jumped at the chance.

Elle CosimanoBook Review – Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano

I enjoyed this one and got the second one for Christmas.

Jo ThomasRandom Things Tours – Book Review – Retreat to the Spanish Sun by Jo Thomas and Random Things Tours – Book Review – Keeping A Christmas Promise by Jo Thomas

Top Ten Tuesday – On Thursday – Bookish Goals for 2023

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Bookish Goals for 2023. This is a bit of a thinker! After some thought I have managed to come up with these:

  1. To read at least 50 books this year – I managed to read over 100 last year, but I have had so many colds that my reading has taken a hit and I want to give myself a bit of a break – crazy talk I know!
  2. Go on less Blog Tours. I love a Blog Tour, but it did end up being a bit much. I am going to do my best to stick to one Tour a month (after this month!!).
  3. I want to read more books on my shelf. I have so many books that I need to read and would like to focus on those this year.
  4. I want to read at least the same number of library books, purely because I don’t want to stop using the library. It is such a valuable resource.
  5. I want to continue reading various genres.
  6. I would like to try and read more translated books – this is probably where the Blog Tours will help – they have really helped vary my reading material!
  7. I would like to read more books based in different countries around the world – again Blog Tours have helped with this!
  8. To do another buddy read with my sister and cousin – this has loosely been organised for the Summer, but we shall see.

I am struggling to come up with any more so they are my top 8 bookish goals!

What are some of your goals for this year?

Top Ten Tuesday – Books on My Winter 2022-2023 To-Read List

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Books on My Winter 2022-2023 To-Read List. I have a few Blog Tours coming up so those books are my priority. The rest are hopefuls from my TBR (although with Christmas coming up who knows whether these will turn into Spring TBR books!!):

Winter Blog Tours (Books I still need to read):

Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries by Heather Fawcett (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

A curmudgeonly professor journeys to a small town in the far north to study faerie folklore and discovers dark fae magic, friendship, and love, in this heartwarming and enchanting fantasy.

Cambridge professor Emily Wilde is good at many things: She is the foremost expert on the study of faeries. She is a genius scholar and a meticulous researcher who is writing the world’s first encyclopaedia of faerie lore. But Emily Wilde is not good at people. She could never make small talk at a party–or even get invited to one. And she prefers the company of her books, her dog, Shadow, and the Fair Folk to other people.

So when she arrives in the hardscrabble village of Hrafnsvik, Emily has no intention of befriending the gruff townsfolk. Nor does she care to spend time with another new arrival: her dashing and insufferably handsome academic rival Wendell Bambleby, who manages to charm the townsfolk, get in the middle of Emily’s research, and utterly confound and frustrate her.

But as Emily gets closer and closer to uncovering the secrets of the Hidden Ones–the most elusive of all faeries–lurking in the shadowy forest outside the town, she also finds herself on the trail of another mystery: Who is Wendell Bambleby, and what does he really want? To find the answer, she’ll have to unlock the greatest mystery of all–her own heart.”

Promise Me by Jill Mansell (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

“One minute Lou is happily employed, with a perfect flat. The next, her home and job have gone. Suddenly she has to start over.

The last thing Lou wants is to move to a tiny Cotswolds village. She certainly doesn’t intend to work for curmudgeonly eighty-year-old Edgar Allsopp. But Edgar is about to make her the kind of promise nobody could ignore. In return, she secretly vows to help him fall in love with life again.

Foxwell is also home to Remy, whose charm and charisma are proving hard to ignore. But Lou hasn’t recovered from the last time she fell for a charmer. She needs a distraction – and luckily one’s about to turn up.

Secrets never stay hidden for long in Foxwell, nor are promises always kept. And no one could guess what lies ahead…”

Death and the Conjuror by Tom Mead (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

A magician-turned-sleuth in pre-war London solves three impossible crimes.

In 1930s London, celebrity psychiatrist Anselm Rees is discovered dead in his locked study, and there seems to be no way that a killer could have escaped unseen. There are no clues, no witnesses, and no evidence of the murder weapon. Stumped by the confounding scene, the Scotland Yard detective on the case calls on retired stage-magician-turned-part-time-sleuth Joseph Spector. Who better to make sense of the impossible than one who traffics in illusions?

Spector has a knack for explaining the inexplicable, but even he finds that there is more to this mystery than meets the eye. As he and the Inspector interview the colorful cast of suspects among the psychiatrist’s patients and household, they uncover no shortage of dark secrets—or motives for murder. When the investigation dovetails into that of an apparently impossible theft, the detectives consider the possibility that the two transgressions are related. And when a second murder occurs, this time in an impenetrable elevator, they realize that the crime wave will become even deadlier unless they can catch the culprit soon.”

Fallen Butterfly by Anna Nicholas

Book Description From Random Things Tours:

“Eccentric, headstrong and engaging, Isabel Flores Montserrat is a cross between a highly charged Precious Ramotswe (The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency) & Phyrne Fisher (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries).

With political tensions running high due to a controversial new motorway scheme, the chilling and ritualistic murder of a high-flying local government minister sends shockwaves through the island. When her home is ransacked and another brutal killing occurs, Isabel Flores Montserrat, unorthodox former detective, joins up once again with Mallorca’s police chief, Tolo Cabot, in a perilous race for answers.

Meanwhile, fear and distrust grow in Isabel’s village as fake signs and cairn markers send disorientated hikers plunging off cliffs. Is this mountain mischief the work of environmentalists or is something far more sinister afoot?”

Books on my TBR shelves:

The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections by Eva Jurczyk (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“What holds more secrets in the library: the ancient books shelved in the stacks or the people who preserve them?

Liesl Weiss has been (mostly) happy working in the rare books department of a large university, managing details and working behind the scenes to make the head of the department look good. But when her boss has a stroke and she’s left to run things, she discovers that the library’s most prized manuscript is missing.

Liesl tries to sound the alarm and inform the police about the missing priceless book but is told repeatedly to keep quiet to keep the doors open and the donors happy. But then a librarian goes missing as well. Liesl must investigate both disappearances, unspooling her colleagues’ pasts like the threads of a rare book binding as it becomes clear that someone in the department must be responsible for the theft. What Liesl discovers about the dusty manuscripts she has worked among for so long—and about the people who preserve and revere them—shakes the very foundation on which she has built her life.”

The Devil’s Advocate by Steve Cavanagh (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

A deadly prosecutor

They call him the King of Death Row. Randal Korn has sent more men to their deaths than any district attorney in the history of the United States.

A twisted ritualistic killing

When a young woman, Skylar Edwards, is found murdered in Buckstown, Alabama, a corrupt sheriff arrests the last person to see her alive, Andy Dubois. It doesn’t seem to matter to anyone that Andy is innocent.

A small town boiling with rage

Everyone in Buckstown believes Andy is guilty. He has no hope of a fair trial. And the local defense attorney assigned to represent him has disappeared.

A former con-artist

Hot shot New York lawyer Eddie Flynn travels south to fight fire with fire. He plans to destroy the prosecutors case, find the real killer and save Andy from the electric chair.

But the murders are just beginning.

Is Eddie Flynn next?

Tinker, Tailor, Schoolmum, Spy by Faye Brann (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Vicky Turnbull has never regretted giving up her career for family life in the suburbs. And apart from being outstandingly good at paintball, no one would ever know that in a past life she was an undercover spy and has been trained to kill a man with her bare hands. Not even her husband, and certainly not the other mums at the school gate.

But beneath the school runs and bake sales, Vicky had never quite said goodbye to the past. So, when a newcomer on the PTA sets alarms bells ringing and MI5 comes calling, she’s determined to prove that despite her expanding waistline and love of pink gin, she’s still every bit the cold-eyed special operative.

When the assignment gets uncomfortably close to home, Vicky must decide if she has got what the job takes after all, and if home is really where her heart is…”

The Dark Remains by William McIlvanney and Ian Rankin (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

“In this scorching crime prequel, New York Times best-selling author Ian Rankin and Scottish crime-writing legend William McIlvanney join forces for the first ever case of D.I. Laidlaw, Glasgow’s original gritty detective.”

I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

“From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella, an irresistible story of love and empowerment about a young woman with a complicated family, a handsome man who might be “the one,” and an IOU that changes everything

Fixie Farr has always lived by her father’s motto: “Family first.” But since her dad passed away, leaving his charming housewares store in the hands of his wife and children, Fixie spends all her time picking up the slack from her siblings instead of striking out on her own. The way Fixie sees it, if she doesn’t take care of her father’s legacy, who will? It’s simply not in her nature to say no to people.

So when a handsome stranger in a coffee shop asks her to watch his laptop for a moment, Fixie not only agrees—she ends up saving it from certain disaster. Turns out the computer’s owner is an investment manager. To thank Fixie for her quick thinking, Sebastian scribbles an IOU on a coffee sleeve and attaches his business card. But Fixie laughs it off—she’d never actually claim an IOU from a stranger. Would she?

Then Fixie’s childhood crush, Ryan, comes back into her life and his lack of a profession pushes all of Fixie’s buttons. She wants nothing for herself—but she’d love Seb to give Ryan a job. And Seb agrees, until the tables are turned once more and a new series of IOUs between Seb and Fixie—from small favors to life-changing moments—ensues. Soon Fixie, Ms. Fixit for everyone else, is torn between her family and the life she really wants. Does she have the courage to take a stand? Will she finally grab the life, and love, she really wants?”

Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

“In Hercule Poirot’s Christmas, the holidays are anything but merry when a family reunion is marred by murder — and the notoriously fastidious investigator is quickly on the case. The wealthy Simeon Lee has demanded that all four of his sons — one faithful, one prodigal, one impecunious, one sensitive — and their wives return home for Christmas. But a heartwarming family holiday is not exactly what he has in mind. He bedevils each of his sons with barbed insults and finally announces that he is cutting off their allowances and changing his will. Poirot is called in the aftermath of Simeon Lee’s announcement.”

Top Ten Tuesday – Series I’d Like to Start/Catch up on/Finish

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Series I’d Like to Start/Catch up on/Finish. This is an interesting one as I haven’t read a series for a while.

Series on my shelves:

Miss Marple books by Agatha Christie

I thought that I should make a start on collecting some Agatha Christie novels and went for Miss Marple. I kept buying them, but then not spending the time reading them. I have read a couple, but have many more to go!

His Dark Material books by Philip Pullman

A few years ago I saw that Philip Pullman had a new series out that looked quite good – The Book of Dust. I hadn’t actually read (or seen!) His Dark Materials series so I thought that I should start with that!

Eddie Flynn Series by Steve Cavanah

I saw one of the Eddie Flynn books on the BBC programme Between the Covers. I decided to buy it and absolutely loved it! When I realised that it was part of a series I had to get the rest of the series. Since then he has had a couple more books out which I have duly bought, but I still need to read!

Crescent City Series by Sarah J Maas

I absolutely loved ACOTAR and when I saw this series coming out I had to get it. I have still yet to read it, but I am looking forward to it!

The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

I loved The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments series, so when I saw this coming out I got the first two. I have yet to read either of them and have just ordered the third one!

Down series by Glenn Cooper

I have the first two so need to read these and then get more! I have loved Glen Cooper’s other books so I have high expectations for these!

Series on my wishlist:

American Royals series by Katharine McGee

I have read the first one and loved it! The other two are currently on my wishlist.

Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano

I read the first one and really enjoyed it. The next one is currently on my list and when the next one is out that will be making it’s way on there too!

Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

I have read the first two. I thought the first one was ok and I absolutely loved the second one. I therefore didn’t commit to the others straight away, but I wouldn’t say never, especially with series 3 coming out!

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

After loving ACOTAR I have had my eye on this series for a while!
