Top Ten Tuesday - Recent Editions to Our TBR's



Hosts - The Broke and the Bookish | Details - Top Ten Tuesday Feature

Stacie

  1. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson: Ok.. I know everyone by now has pretty much heard of Mr Sanderson but I was very late to the party and now he's all I can think about reading.
  2. Every Breath by Ellie Marney: I'm a bit of a sucker for contemporaries and this one sounds pretty good, plus the series just ended (I think..?) so when I get it, I'll get them all and marathon them
  3. Soulmates by Holly Bourne:  I read The Manifesto on How to be Interesting a while ago and it was pretty good so I'm looking forward to more of her work.
  4. Sisters of Blood and Spirit by Kady Cross: 1. I love fantasy. 2. A lot of people seem to be talking about this lately. 3. That cover... enough said.
  5. Soundless by Richelle Mead: If you don't know how much I love Richelle Mead by now you either weren't listening properly or I haven't been saying it enough haha. I can't wait to try her new series (and you know.. get around to get to her adult series)
  1. Conversion by Katherine Howe: The first review books of the list (they all are). I love witches and I really don't read enough stories about them. This intrigued me so I just had to request it.
  2. My Secret Rockstar Boyfriend by Eleanor Wood: This sounds like such a fluffy and fun read, it isn't with my by the time of writing this but hopefully it will be before the post goes live as I'm really looking forward to it.
  3. Day Four by Sarah Lotz: I have both The Tree and Day Four for review, I'm really trying to get back into my adult fiction and have a more balanced taste. The books sound really creepy so here's hoping I like them.
  4. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: Another book that seems like a really fun and easy read. (also it's a contemporary so duh!)
  5. Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry: I don't really need to explain this one do I? nah, I didn't think so :P

  1. The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle: This is a book I've been lucky enough to receive a review copy of and it sounds just extremely interesting and tempting. 'Accidents' happening during a particular time period, lots of mystery and unanswered questions, count me in!
  2. The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: I LOVED Jennifer Lynn Barnes other work The Naturals, and her paranormal stuff doesn't appeal too much, but this, this is mystery and sisters and covering up crimes and so much good stuff, I just need it as soon as possible.
  3. We'll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean: Am I shallow if I say this book hit my TBR because of it's cover and it's premise, because that's it people, it's creepy and beautiful, perfect combination.
  4. A Step Toward Falling by McGovern: This book sounds like it could hurt, emotionally, a lot, and sad books work with me if done well, and this sounds like a real repercussions book, and the cover is beautiful, so duh.
  5. The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse: Oh my days, a book that isn't to be released this year, what is this madness?! No, seriously, I've known about this book for, forever, and yet, I only really read the premise the other day, holy batman, why have I not read this yet? It sounds, brilliant.
    
  1. Placebo Junkies by J.C. Carleson: This and the following book just sound so up my alley, drugs, mystery, danger, school kids, lots of the cool cool things, and I'm just drawn to it, it sounds lke it could be such a 'me' book.
  2. Sleepless by Lou Morgan: As with the previous, this sounds so utterly great, and I read Flesh and Blood, part of the companion series and that was brilliant, I expect great things.
  3. Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones: One of the more 'I'm creeping on you book' books, and that's fair, because I've gone on and off this book so many times, but right now, I'm on it. talented, gifted kids, FBI's, mystery, powers, drugs - I'm sensing a theme here..
  4. Black Iris by Leah Reader: Bekka LOVED this book, and it sounds amazing, and it's got the female/female love and romance and it's passionate and oh my god somebody give me this yesterday, please.
  5. Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between: As with Smith's other release this year, I'm hanging on this one. I own her other three, and am eager to read this one, it sounds so sweet and so sad and the cover is all purple and all gorgeous, yes please.

What's been recently added to your TBR's, let us know!

  1. First off, I just need to say you have a GORGEOUS site design. <3 Absolutely love it.

    You absolutely MUST read the Every Breath series. They are incredible. And yes, the last in the series was just released, and I am slightly terrified of touching it because I just don't want the series to be over. ^_^ I've been meaning to read Steelheart too -- funnily enough I wasn't too fond of this Mistborn series, but this one might be more to my liking. I've recently put Black Iris on my TBR list too. I wouldn't usually thing that it's "my thing" but I've heard exceptional things about it. :)

    Great list, you two!

  2. OH LOOK, THE FIXER. :) So excited. I haven't read any of Jennifer E. Smith's stuff, though I have basically all of it on my TBR and really need to find the time to read them.

    Also, Stacie, I'll admit that I've never heard of Brandon Sanderson. So you can take comfort in that.

    1. I know, we appear to have similar taste don't we Zoey! I think Statistical and Geography are my favourites of Smiths work, I'd read those first. Thanks for stopping by!<3

  3. I don't know where to start!! LOL Stacie - I just got my copy of Every Breath this week in the mail. I'm so looking forward to starting that series. I also preordered my copy of Nowhere But Here, I can't wait to finally read that. I'm excited about Simon too... looks like such a powerful, emotional read! Amanda - I'm so excited to start The Fixer too. I hope it's as awesome as it sounds. I actually started Black Iris last week, but it was TOO dark of a read for me (maybe it's just my mood lately) so I had to put it down. I hope you enjoy it though! I've heard so many amazing things from people that really like the dark reads. Leah's writing is phenomenal. So poetic and beautiful. Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between looks super cute! I've read all of Jennifer E. Smith's other books, so I will definitely be reading this one as well. So much awesome, guys! Love it!! :)

    1. So much in common Lisa! I'm sorry Black Iris wasn't right for you, I've heard it's dark and grungy which is something I love, so hopefully it'll still be okay for me, and Jennifer E Smith has a lot of fans, good luck!<3

  5. Wow your lists have to books with the most gorgeous covers. I'm a sucker for a good cover. Stacie: I just read Steelheart (my first Sanderson too) and be excited because it was well worth it! Adding Conversion and Nowhere but Here to my own list. Amanda: Definitely adding The Accident Season, We'll Never Be Apart, and The Forsaken. The amazing covers sold me before I even read the premises! Awesome lists.

  6. I like the whiteboard marker look on Nowhere But Here (It also sounds super interesting!). Conversion looks weird...which is definitely promising.

    1. Weird it definitely sounds, it's all Salem witches and hauntings!

  7. Conversion was so good, especially if you liked the play, the Crucible, which is tied into the story alot. Hope you enjoy reviewing it!

  9. Stacie: I completely recommend Every Breath!! I've only read book 1 so far BUT IT WAS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I'm already reserving book 2 from the library. *flails* And I've heard so many good things about Simon Vs the Homo Sapien Agenda that I want it badly too. xD

    Amanda: Omg! SO MANY PRETTY COVERS. I'm looking up the Forsake asap mainly because of cover love. Okay completely because of cover love. IT'S PRETTY, OKAY?! XDXD
