Top Ten Tuesday: Winter TBR

Monday, November 24, 2014 10:22 PM with 13 comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Click the link to go to their site to see the original list for today plus links to a whole slew of other blogs. After you read mine, of course.

Today's Topic: Winter TBR

It's been a long time since I've posted a Top Ten Tuesday list, but I just cannot resist the season TBR lists. Despite not reading nearly as much as I would like right now (which I know just comes with the territory of being a first year teacher), there are still several books coming out in the next few months I hope to make time for. If nothing else, I can snag them in the summer when I'll actually have some time to read. I have arcs for a handful of these, but not all of them.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Vicious was my favorite book of 2013, so to say I'm excited for this multiverse adult novel is a total understatement. I cannot freaking wait to get my hands on this book. Release: 2/24
All Fall Down by Ally Carter
I love the Heist Society series, so I'm psyched for this new series by Ms. Carter. Release 1/27
A Wicked Things by Rhiannon Thomas
I'm excited for this one because instead of just being a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, it looks at what happens after she's been awakened. Release: 2/24
When by Victoria Laurie
A girl who can see people's "death dates" gets pulled into a murder investigation. I can't wait to dive into this one. It sounds amazing. Release: 1/13 
The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
First of all, that cover is gorgeous. Second of all, it is about a girl whose very touch can kill because she is the goddess-embodied. Third of all, this makes her her kingdom's executioner. Sold, dude, completely sold. Release 2/24
We Can Work it Out by Elizabeth Eulberg
Penny Lane and her Broken Hearts are back. It's been a few years since I read the first book, so I'll definitely have to revisit it before Jan. I don't LOVE Eulberg's books, but they are always fun in a fluffy, forgettable way--which certainly has its place. Release 1/27
I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
This love story sounds like it is full of the feels. I've heard nothing but good things about this author's debut (a book I've checked out from the library at least 4 times--ugh), so I'm excited to dive into this one. Release 2/3
What Waits in the Woods by Kieran Scott 
Four teens go on a camping trip in the woods. I'm sure it will all end happily ever after. I LOVE this cover. Release 3/31
Dead to Me by Mary McCoy
LA Confidential for the YA crowd. That's really all I needed to know about this one before I got a case of the grabby hands. Release 3/3
Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
A girl tries to find her missing, estranged sister. Release 3/10
The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkowski
I was surprised how much I enjoyed The Winner's Crime as it isn't really my usual genre. I'm excited to see what happens next. Release 3/3
A year after the death of her boyfriend a girl tries to live a normal high school life. I still haven't read this author's debut, but I know a lot of my buddies enjoyed it. Release 3/31

Already released books I plan on getting to over Christmas break

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
