Top Ten Books Recently Added To My To-Be-Read List

1. Breaking Saint Jude by Nikki Godwin – I saw this on Cayce’s blog and the synopsis made me think of Andrew Smith and his weird but awesome stories so I just have to read this some time.
2. Kindred by Octavia E. Butler – On my search for interracial couples I stumbled upon this one, not sure if there’s any romance in it but the premise sounds very intriguing.
3. Everything Begins and Ends at the Kentucky Club by Benjamin Alire Sáenz – I loved Ari and Dante, I need more of this man’s beautiful writing.
4. Hushed by Kelley York – I’m always wanting new LGBT stories and I got this recommendation from The Fussy Librarian .
5. Black Iris by Leah Raeder – I had an awful experience going into new adult, a trusted reviewer seemed to be having the same problem but she loved this book as well as the next two so I decided to add them for future reference.

    Wow some really interesting books that I have never seen before on your list! Hushed looks particularly amazing. Totally adding some to my TBR.

    Since I have an adopted bi-racial daughter, I’m always interested in books about transracial adoption and interracial relationships. I started KINDRED, but didn’t love it, so I never finished it. Have you ever read CALLING ME HOME by Julie Kibler? It’s about a forbidden interracial relationship in 1940s Kentucky and it’s excellent. Maybe give it a go if you haven’t already.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
