Top Ten Tuesday: Spring Reads
My blog friend Jaime Morrow is participating in the Tuesday Top Ten over at The Broke and the Bookish. This seems like a fairly easy meme to participate in given the pile of books on my TBR list, so I thought I’d join in (yes, I know it’s not on the schedule… schedules are made to be broken, aren’t they?). Anyway, here’s my top ten:
- INSURGENT by Veronica Roth. Not out until May, but eagerly anticipated!
- TANGLED by Erica O’Rourke. I enjoyed TORN, so I’m looking forward to finding out what happens next.
- THE FUTURE OF US by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler. The premise is intriguing (kids in 1996 find their future Facebook pages). I’ve been looking forward to reading this for a while.
- NUMB by Sean Ferrell. Another intriguing premise (a man who has no memory and feels no pain tries to piece together what happened to him).
- LOOKING FOR ALASKA by John Green. I’ve read a couple of John Green books, and I need to read more. His books are an education on how to write well, especially for Young Adult.
- MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN by Ransom Riggs. Again, it’s the premise that gets my attention, but this has also been reviewed positively by so many people, I can’t ignore it.
- SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi. Another book that has received a lot of positive attention. I’m told the prose style is unusual too, so I anticipate a learning experience.
- EXTRAS by Scott Westerfeld. I’ve read the UGLIES series, and have put off reading this “extra” for long enough!
- PURGATORY CHASM by Steve Ulfelder. Nominated for an Edgar–I have to find out what the fuss is about.
- THE PERICLES COMMISSION by Gary Corby. A murder-mystery set in Ancient Greece? This I’ve got to read!
You might notice I linked the titles to Goodreads so you can get more details.
I could have added a bunch more books, but what with writing, family, work, and so on, I’ll be happy if I hit the Summer having got through this lot.
