The Top Ten Books on My Summer TBRPosted: November 25, 2014
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR”. Of course, it’s nearly summer here — as I write this it’s 9.30 in the evening and I still have the airconditioner running. Ick.
Whatever hemisphere you’re in, these are the books I want to read in the next three months, in no particular order.
Endsinger by Jay Kristoff. (Feudal Japanese Steampunk) Book three in The Lotus Wars trilogy, this comes out TOMORROW, you guys! Aaaah. Although I’ve heard it’s very, very sad. I did buy a Costco-sized bulk box of tissues the other day, so I’m prepared!
Allegiant by Veronica Roth. (Dystopian) Controversial, I know; I loved the first two in the trilogy but heard the fuss about the third one and never bought it. A friend has now loaned it to me so I can read it and see for myself.
Autumn Bones by Jacqueline Carey. (Urban fantasy) Book two in the Agent of Hel series. I was waiting for the paperback to come out and it has. Finally. Hardcovers should be banned, you guys!
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. (Urban fantasy) Another book where I loved the first one in the series and was waiting for the paperback. Although fortunately I didn’t discover the series until a while after it came out, or I’d have had even longer to wait.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. (Dystopian/paranormal) I’ve never read anything by Ms Black but this one looks good. Vampires feature heavily, I gather.
The Dream Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon. (Urban fantasy/PNR?) I think this was on my actual winter TBR but I never quite got there. I will read it in the next three months, you guys. Hold me to that.
The Alchemyst by Michael Scott. (Urban fantasy) Because there aren’t enough blokes on my TBR. And because I bought it second-hand on impulse and the cover is pretty.
Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris. (Urban fantasy) The last of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, which I haven’t quite gotten around to reading yet. I don’t have very strong feelings about where Sookie should end up romantically, so I expect to enjoy it.
The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth. (Historical fantasy) This is the story of the girl who told the Grimm Brothers all the fairytales they became famous for. I gather it’s based on a true person. And Kate Forsyth rocks. Yay!
The Iron Daughter by Julie Kawaga. (Urban fantasy) I liked the first one in the series — see my last review — and since I “accidentally” bought the entire series as a boxed set, I might as well…
