This is the easiest Top Ten Tuesday ever! I’m currently reading Legend by Marie Lu, and the next ten-ish books on my TBR list are:
This one is first on my list because James is doing a book signing pretty soon in my area. I have a strong love/late relationship with the Maze Runner books: I love them, but they break my heart.
Courts and kingdoms are a popular theme right now in YA novels and the plot of this one sounds so good! Kendare Blake is also doing a signing near me in October so I want to read it before then!
I’ve read and loved several books by Lauren Oliver. Plus, she’s such a kind person if you get the chance to meet her, so I had to add her newest book to my list. The concept of two stories in one sounds really cool, but as an indecisive person I don't know how I'm going to read this.
I wasn’t a super big fan of the cover so I never picked up the book, but Morgan Rhodes is another author doing a signing near me, so I finally read the synopsis of this book and it sounds amazing! I have a feeling I’m going to be kicking myself for not reading this series sooner!
Thank you so much Random Penguin House (I know it’s Penguin Random House but this makes me giggle) to sending me an ARC of this! Thirteen Reasons Why holds such a special place in my heart and I’m so excited for this!!
6. Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
Another thank you to Random Penguin for this one! I haven’t read Mosquitoland, but have heard nothing but good things about it and this one. It also sounds like a good break between all the magical lands I’ve been reading about.
7. Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst
Oh my gosh, guys; I can't wait for this! A princess with magic powers betrothed to a price whose kingdom forbids all magic falls in love with his sister! This debut sounds like it’s going to be made up of all the things I like and things I haven’t read before; I’m so excited!
8. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This has been on my TBR list forever, but the photographs scared me! I’ve heard nothing but good things and with the movie coming out I figured it’s time to give it a go!
9. Girl on the Train
According to my friend these are what sexy, fanfiction dreams are made of—in novel form. These are technically three books, but according to what my friend’s told me I won't want to stop once I start so I'll be reading them one after another.
11. By Gaslight by Steven Price
The book sits at #11 because it's out of my usual genre and it’s really long, so I don’t know if I’ll get to it this fall or wait until winter. However, having said that, as soon as I picked up this book I wanted to read it because it sounds different and intriguing and I want to give it a try. I'm also a super fan of the book cover!
