Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Fall 2015 To Be Read Pile
Seasonal TBRs top ten tuesday lists will destroy me and my mental TBR pile. But onward we go to discovering new titles, am I right?
The Rest of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness
You best know that I will be reading this soon. Fun fact: stores–sometimes–display not-yet published titles a week or two in advance. (At least, this is my experience.) So I went into Indigo (that’s like B&N, Waterstones, Dymocks for anyone outside CAN) and asked a lady if they received a shipment of this book and if it was possible to get a copy [3 weeks early]. I was rejected.
And to hype myself up even more, I changed my phone background last night to the image you see on your right. I made it just because. And because I will read whatever this man writes. I’m sure that much is clear.
Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
I also asked about this title; which only has a week-ish until release, should be no problem, right? They declined this too. Life is unfair. And so we wait. This book wasn’t even high on my priority until last Tuesday when I started Grisha…and now I’m 30% done Book 3. I THINK I’M READING SLOWER BECAUSE IT’S ABOUT TO END THO…
Armada – Earnest Cline
I wanted to read this…then ARCs happened…then releases happened…then other random shit happened. Le sigh.
A Darker Shade of Magic – V.E. Schwab
While I’m still on the hunt for a relatively inexpensive hardcover of Vicious, the premise of this book sounded pretty neat. So I picked this up from Book Outlet when it was available. As my first foray into her writing, I’m hoping I won’t be disappointed! (Because, you know, hype and shit always seem to fail me.)
The Rook – Daniel O’Malley
As you may or may not know, I caved in and bought the paperback instead of my usual HC from Book Outlet. I really wanted to read it, okay?
The Scorpion Rules – Erin Bow
Honestly, this book is such a struggle for me to read. How do I explain it? I’m 90 pages in and the world-building [still] confuses the shit out of me. The saving grace is the A.I. villain overlord, Talis, but everything else is just a blergh. And there are goats, I guess, is the other plus.
This Is Where It Ends – Marieke Nijkamp
This was a spontaneous Read Now trigger-happy request on NetGalley. But hey, the blurb convinced me I needed it. Really needed it.
An Inheritance of Ashes – Leah Bobet
This is the only choice I’m on the fence about reading. I received a copy of this two months back and aside from the Six of Crows-esqe book cover, I’m unsure if it’s something that I’d enjoy actually.
The Thing About Jellyfish – Ali Benjamin
Here’s the thing: MG books I’ve picked up have actually never failed me–they’ve been strongly positive and usually 4+ stars for me. This book is published today (Sept 22) and next to Inheritance, it’s among the few that I’m not sure if I want to actually read.
The Winner’s Trilogy – Marie Rutkoski
I am convinced that I am missing out on everything in life because since starting Grisha last week…it has taught me that binge reading trilogies is very satisfying. BUT ALAS, THE NEXT BOOK IS RELEASED IN MARCH. So maybe I won’t read this…
Perhaps you’ve been meaning some of these titles too. Well, I’m going to shamelessly plug that my birthday giveaway is still live and it amounts to $25 CAD at The Book Depository. Full details here.
