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 Summer 14’ TBR
Your eyes do not deceive you… I’m alive!
Summer is no different than Spring as I’m still backlogged from ARCs from the previous season. It also doesn’t help that I’ve returned to a certain game which eats time so quickly. In better news, summer also means certain movies are coming out and therefore some reading must be done prior to.
All images link back to Goodreads and I’ve provided briefs to support each title.
The Maze Runner – James Dashner
Thank you to movie trailers for getting the ball rolling with this.
“When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers–boys whose memories are also gone. Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out–and no one’s ever made it through alive. Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.”
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Yes, you’ve read correctly. To all individuals who have chirped me to read this…this is written in the stars now. It will happen.
“Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.”
The Rithmatist – Brandon Sanderson
I will mend a broken promise to read a previous book club book (Jenny Han’s To All The Boys…) with this one. Well…I hope at least. Though I’ve heard some mixed reviews of this, I’m still pretty certain you can never go wrong with anything Sanderson.
“More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing — kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery — one that will change Rithmatics — and their world — forever.”
