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:
Top Ten Books on my
Spring 14’ TBR list
Spring? What is this spring you speak of? I only know of Winter and Summer (Canada takes #WeAreWinter trending too seriously). This list is part rehashing from an earlier post (Top Ten Debuts I’m Excited For (Books/T.V./Movies)) and part inclusion of novels that have been added to my TBR pile. And let’s be honest: I’m terribad at following my lists. My ratio of read to to-be-read is like 1:30. Oops. Business as usual, image linking to their respective Goodreads site to learn more about each novel.
The following is a generated list of books that I will eventually read (in several seasons), slated to be released in Spring.
Elle Cosimano – Nearly Gone (Mar 25/14)
thoughts: This gives me them Zodiac Killer vibes. Chills, yo.
Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother’s job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone’s skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn’t trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.
M.R Carey – The Girl With All The Gifts (Mar 27/14)
thoughts: So like…. adolescent Carrie, almost? maybe?
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her ‘our little genius’. Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite, but they don’t laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children’s cells. She tells her favourite teacher all the things she’ll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn’t know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.
