FindingPerfect_Final

1.  Finding Perfect by Elly Swartz
The story centers on a girl named Molly who really wants to win a slam poetry contest.  What really piqued my interest is that Molly has OCD.   
2.  Gertie's Leap to Greatness  by Kate Beasley   Gertie is said to be "The new Ramona Quimby."  Okay, for that alone I added it to the TBR.  



21424669272064323. Crown of Three: The Lost Realm by 
J.D. Rinehart  This is the second book in the series.  The first foretold of a prophecy, has some intrigue and some good fight scene's.  Here's a link to my review for the first book.  

4.  Counting Thyme by Melanie Conklin
22453777I first heard of this at The Hiding Spot  where the author was doing a preorder campaign and donating proceeds of each sale to Cookies for Kids Cancer.  This sounds like a very memorable, heartwarming story.  

257856745.  This year for the Cybils, I had the opportunity to read a genre that I often don't read much from, science fiction (with titles like MiNRS, Mars Evacuees and Masterminds).  Bounders by Monica Tesler seemed to have an interesting premise and fit in nicely with the one's that I've read recently.    

6.  Hour of The Bees by Lindsay Eagar
I think I saw this on a Twitter post.  A girl and her grandpa, storytelling, dementia.  Why am I drawn to these realistic fiction books so?
23291274

510707.  The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, aged 13 3/4 by Sue Townsend Not sure where I found this one, but I was intrigued by the title, premise and it seemed like it would be a funny read.  One to explore further.  

8.  The Classy Crooks Club by Alison Cherry
I found this one on a giveaway from Goodreads.  What a cute cover and  there are grandmother's who instead of playing bridge, have a "heist club." 

21414439250945699.  Fridays with the Wizards by Jessica Day George
It's Jessica Day George and Castle Glower, yep need to continue this series.

10. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I saw this one on a bunch of Top ten lists, so call me curious.  







And one more I added by Becky Albertalli , which doesn't have a title yet, but is "a loose companion to Simon, starring the friends and family Abby left behind in D.C."  

So, what books did you add to your TBR list recently?  Feel free to comment and add links to your Top ten list.
