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!
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...
I'm delighted to welcome my wife, the wonderful Eldritch Soda (I tried to get her to change her name to Eldritch Dean, but no luck, sadl...
