This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is brought to you by, as usual, The Broke and the Bookish. I’m still sporadically posting what I can for the topics as noted, and this week caught my attention for the theme.
I’m a little belated for posting my picks on this topic, but I had to think on this one a little since there are so many books I’ve added to my TBR in the last several days (might as well say the first half of the month), that even I had a time narrowing it down to ten among that group (so many good books coming out this year!).
So I’ll jump into this post with no particular order on this list, but they’re all books I’m looking forward to reading this year that I’ve recently added to the TBR.
1. “You Know Me Well” by David Levithan and Nina LaCour: I’ve enjoyed both Levithan’s and LaCour’s individual works, so it surprised me to hear that they did a collab project. (“Every Day” by Levithan was one of my favorite YA novels, as was “Hold Still” from LaCour”) I’m expecting it to be an emotional journey in the lives of its characters, if their previous work is any indication.
2. “A Court of Mist and Fury” by Sarah J. Maas – I haven’t finished reading “A Court of Thorns and Roses” yet (got recalled from my library before I could finish it) but I enjoyed very much what I was able to read, and I plan to finish it soon. That said, I’m already looking forward to the follow-up book that will be released later this year. And the cover’s pretty epic as well!
3. “When We Collided” by Emery Lord – I first fell in love with Emery Lord’s writing and characters with “The Start of Me and You” which ranked as one of my favorite reads of 2015 (and was my first read from her work). I’m really looking forward to seeing what this story offers when it’s released.
4. Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky – That title. I think that’s what hooked me when I first saw this under a list of suggested reads for one of the books I had on my TBR. I could only imagine what type of mischief might play out in this book. Guess I’ll find out. 🙂
5. Tumbling by Caela Carter – Because I have a thing for sports/Olympic themed books, and considering I’ve read (and really liked) the author’s previous work, I’m excited to have the chance to read from her again.
6. “Bluescreen” by Dan Wells. Because that cover. Because Dan Wells. Need I say more? One of my most anticipated titles for the year in its respective genre as well, so I’m definitely excited to add it among my TBR choices.
7. “A Torch Against the Night” by Sabaa Tahir – I’m curious to see where this series goes in 2016, so I’m waiting on my hands for its respective release. I think I mentioned it before in one of my other TTT posts, but it’s among my recently added TBR books).
8. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. I’ll admit the predessor of this book left me feeling quite underwhelmed, but I’m curious to see where this series goes, so this is a “curiosity” read if nothing else. I’m definitely hoping it’ll step up establishing itself apart from the other YA dystopians out there (the first book had far too many similarities to count).
9. Take the Fall by Emily Hainsworth – it’s been so long since I’ve read anything from Emily Hainsworth, so this comes as a great surprise this year. I’m looking forward to reading it.
10. The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh – I’m reading the first book in this series now and really enjoying it, so no surprise I’m going to pick up the sequel (and look at that cover! Love!)
That’s all for this entry. I’m enjoying posting these and hope to pick back up with it in the duration of 2016.
