Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
A Reckless Magick - Stephanie Burgis - The first two books in the Chronicles of Kat Stephenson series, A Most Improper Magick and A Tangle of Magicks, are two of the best I've read all year - and Kat may be my favourite fictional heroine of recent years. I can't wait to see what happens next in this wonderful Regency series.
Cassie's Crush - Fiona Foden - I loved Fiona Foden's first book, Life, Death and Gold Leather Trousers, and have been eagerly awaiting a new one since I first read it.
Immortal Rules - Julie Kagawa - I won a copy of this in a competition run by the awesome Viv over at Serendipity Reads. I've put off reading it simply because I know once I start, I'll almost certainly lose the entire day as it's fairly hefty and everyone who's reviewed it seems to have had real trouble putting it down. As soon as I have a day with nothing much to do, I'm curling up with this one.
In Honor - Jessi Kirby - My eyes are welling up just reading the plot summary of this one. Road trip novel about a girl dealing with the death of her older brother? Can't wait to get my hands on it.
The Twice Lived Summer of Bluebell Jones - Susie Day - Having not read Susie Day before, I recently reviewed her new MG book, Pea's Book of Best Friends for the Bookbag and was completely enchanted. I can't wait to get my hands on her upcoming YA book!
The Second Summer of the Sisterhood - Ann Brashares - I just finished The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and thought it was a really sweet read. Looking forward to the rest.
The Disenchaments by Nina LaCour - I heart road trips books, as I may have mentioned. I heart music books as well. (I don't particularly heart people who use 'heart' as a verb, so not quite sure where this paragraph is going... but the book looks great!)
The Fault in Our Stars - John Green/Wonder - RJ Palacio - I must be the only book blogger around who hasn't read either yet! Pressures of time, but really looking forward to both.
The Prisoner of Heaven - Carlos Ruiz Zafon - A rare mention for adult literary fiction here; given the first two in this quartet are both so fabulous, I'm dying to get this one!
Jackpot is about a teenage girl, Rico, who lives just above the poverty line and works as a gas store clerk to help her mother earn enoug...

First blog post for some time, and there's a fair chance this will get super-rambly. I basically have a LOT of thoughts about reviews, c...
