Top Ten Books on my Summer TBR List

1. Ink – Amanda Sun:It takes place in Japan.  ‘Nuff said.

2. Ashes on the Waves – Mary Lindsey: Based on Edgar Allen Poe’s Annabel Lee, how could I not want to read this one?

3. The Last Olympian – Rick Riordan: I just finished the 4th book of the Percy Jackson series, so I can’t hold off too long to read the final installment.

4. Just One Day – Gayle Forman: I want to participate in the Read Along with Brittany over at The Book Addict’s Guide for this one

5. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea – April Genevieve Tucholke:  This one sounds really interesting and different and I love the cover with all of the fancy text.

6. Type – Alicia Hendley: I won this one from LibraryThing and it is right up my alley with psychological aspects.

7. Dare You To – Katie McGarry:  I loved Pushing the Limits so much and I just can’t wait to be able to read this one!

8. The Beautiful and the Cursed – Page Morgan:  Another interesting spin on a book, plus the cover is gorgeous.

9. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight – Jennifer E. Smith:  I am ashamed to say I STILL haven’t made it to this book yet…

10. If He Had Been With Me – Laura Nowlin: I have been wanting to read this one since I first heard about it and I want it to make me cry because it sounds just so devastating.

My list is a tad late today, had to get up early and take my boyfriend to his doc appointment so he could get his CT scan done.  Who knew that they make you wait 2 HOURS before you can leave because of the injection.  Better late than never I guess 🙂

Blogoversary Countdown – Day 4

Blogoversary

Day 5

My favorite book this past year

I read a bunch of really good books this past year so this one is a bit harder to choose. I even added a few new ones to my faves list I like some of them so much.  I think that for this year though that my favorite would have to be On the Jellicoe Road.

On The Jellicoe Road Cover

I wouldn’t have read this book had it not been for all the rave reviews I saw around the blogosphere.  It sounded a bit interesting when I read the synopsis, but that wasnt enough to really make me feel like I had to read it right away.  The synopsis really doesn’t do this book justice for pulling you in.  It was a fabulous read and touched me in so many ways.  The story was so hopeful and tragic and beautiful all at once.  So I have to say THANK YOU to all the bloggers that the wrote reviews that convinced me to read this story!  If you havent read it yet, you really should and if you would like to see my review you can read it here and I hope it convinces someone to read it like I was!  Do you have a favorite read for this past year?
