New to the TBR Pile (13)

Borrowed from the library:
My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories
edited by Stephanie Perkins

If you love holiday stories, holiday movies, made-for-TV-holiday specials, holiday episodes of your favorite sitcoms and, especially, if you love holiday anthologies, you’re going to fall in love with My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by twelve bestselling young adult writers, edited by international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins.

Bought from
Red Rising
by Pierce Brown

The Earth is dying. Darrow is a Red, a miner in the interior of Mars. His mission is to extract enough precious elements to one day tame the surface of the planet and allow humans to live on it. The Reds are humanity's last hope.

Or so it appears, until the day Darrow discovers it's all a lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations, by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down on Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought.

Until the day that Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their command school, intent on taking down his oppressors from the inside. But the command school is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only student with an agenda.

What's new to your TBR pile this week?  Let me know in the comments!


  1. Nice haul! I really want to read both of those books, I've heard amazing things. Happy Holidays!

    A Perfection Called Books

  2. Those both look good!

    This week I received a copy of "Looking Over Your Shoulder" by P.D. Workman. And I borrowed "Secret Daughter," "The Scorch Trials," and The Ruby Red Trilogy. Should keep me occupied!

    Happy Reading,
    Ally @ The Scribbling Sprite

  3. I'm glad you got Red Rising. That's not a light read though I should warn you, very intense. (In a good way) I just finished the sequel Golden Son yesterday and my head is still spinning. I got Shatter Me this week.
