Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s theme allows me to go through my TBR list again, which is always a mixture of excitement and sadness; exciting for all the books that I can read and sadness at the fact that I can’t buy them all up and devour every word. It’s also exciting since I didn’t really dive into the book blogging world, Goodreads, and creating an Amazon wish list until last year (2015) and when I did, suddenly there wereall these books that I didn’t know about!
So, here’s my attempt at naming only ten of those :)
Armada by Ernest Cline
Like many, I absolutely loved Ready Player One and instantly became intrigued by his new novel. I can’t wait until I can buy it!
Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
I rarely, if ever, read non-fiction books, but this book’s concept and main idea was on my mind for part of 2014 and most of last year. I also really enjoy him as an actor and figured, how could I go wrong?
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
I’m a sucker for Sarah Dessen.
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
This was one of the first books I placed on my Amazon wish list. It sounded new and intriguing and still does!
The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories by Marina Keegan
Such a sad story about Marina … the reviews on her essays and stories was really good and it sounded like she had a take on reality. Again, not an avid reader of non-fiction, but it’s one that seems that I have to give it a try.
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
I can be a sucker for these kinds of romantic books.
Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
This was actually on my Christmas list, but sadly I didn’t get it. But I will probably end up buying it soon anyways. I was intrigued by the idea of trying to be perfect, especially in a young character, and finding out that it shouldn’t matter.
Confess by Colleen Hoover
Another one that was on my Christmas list, but didn’t get. Probably because it’s still in hardcover. I think I heard really good things about this author and the summary was intriguing.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I have yet to finish the Grisha trilogy, but I love her writing, so I think this might be an automatic buy. Eventually.
See Me by Nicholas Sparks
So, I actually have only read one book by Nicholas Sparks, and enjoyed it. This one seemed like another good one, simple two-people-meet-start-to-fall-in-love-but-obstacle-happens-will-they-overcome-pr0bably kind of story. (that was a mouthful haha).
You know, a lot books (and authors) I learned about through all of you awesome book bloggers were published in 2014 – go figure. And I know I’ve seen a few of these around on other blogs … anyone read any of the others or heard about them?
Book cover images found via Google search, I believe most are from Amazon and Goodreads
