Top Ten Tuesday, and Furiously Happy


As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish.

This week's theme is Ten Books I Recently Added to my TBR List



After being lucky enough to see Hamilton, I really want to read the Hamilton biography, and the book surrounding the musical.


I am fascinated by "odd phenomena", so as soon as I heard about this book, I knew I had to read it.


I've loved everything I've ever read of Shirley Jackson's, so I can't resist a fictionalized novel about her involving a mysterious disappearance.


I'm fascinated by thrillers involving social media, and as this is Wang's debut novel, I'm hoping to discover a new author to love.


I can never resist any take on Sherlock Holmes!


Sudjic is being compared to Patricia Highsmith, and has written a thriller surrounding obsession and the idea of an "internet twin".



A supernatural thriller involving a true crime writer and a cult!


After reading the first book in this series in a day, I was hooked. I can't wait to read these!

What books have you added to your TBR lately?

Sometimes, you are lucky enough to find a book that really means something to you, that speaks to something in you that you needed spoken to. This is one of those books for me.

Jenny Lawson writes insightful, and also absolutely hilarious, deeply personal essays. She writes about her personal life, particularly her experiences with anxiety, depression, and phobias. She makes you think, makes you feel, and also will have you laughing out loud on the bus, on the couch, and wherever else you happen to read this wonderful book.

This is one of those books I want to run around recommending to everybody. It's a special, important, and funny read.
