Top Ten Tuesday 06/09/2015

top ten tuesday

Wow I have not done a Top Ten Tuesday post in I don’t know how long but I feel like it easily has to be two months which is all sorts of insane. I’m finally back on a roll with a ton of reviews being posted this and next week so it’s about time I get back to posting every Tuesday as well. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Top Ten Tuesdays, it is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week features a different topic and this week’s topic is, Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the Rest of 2015. I do believe I participated in the Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for 2015 at the end of last year or beginning of this year. I’m almost positive 9 out of 10 books have changed since then so it was fun to pick out 10 books that are still set to release this year.

 Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the Rest of 2015

(In order of release date)

1.) July 7 – Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten

2.) July 7 – Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally

3.) August 4 – Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

4.) August 6 – The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

5.) August 18 – The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy

6.) September 1 – Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between by Jennifer E. Smith

8.) September 22 – Nightfall by Jake Halpern & Peter Kujawinski

9.) October 27 – Persuasion by Martina Boone

10.) November 10 – Consent by Nancy Ohlin

I am hoping to be able to read and review advanced copies of most, if not all, of these books on my list. I currently have review copies for numbers 1, 2 and 9, and will be reviewing book number 8 through a tour. I will be posting those reviews as they get closer to their release dates so be on the lookout for them beginning in July!

So yay I am so far staying on top of my Top Ten Tuesday posts! So far I am loving my new job and it has already given me so much extra time to read so I will be posting a book review tomorrow morning. I am so happy to finally get back to reading and posting like before. Anyways Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish who create a new topic for each week. This week’s topic is, Ten Books For Readers Who Like _________. Each blogger can choose what to fill in the blank with so I am choosing…

Ten Books For Readers Who Like Young Adult Romances

1.) The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy by Jenny Han

2.) Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler

3.) Moonglass by Jessi Kirby

4.) The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

5821978 image 8535449 image

5.) Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

6.) Magnolia by Kristi Cook

7.) Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

8.) Rules of Summer by Joanna Philbin

6068551 16059149 13597696 15723152

9.) Wrong About the Guy by Claire LaZebnik *Expected Publishing Date 4/2015*

10.) Between Us and the Moon by Rebecca Maizel *Expected Publishing Date 6/2015*

2286482920807316

These are my top picks when it comes to young adult romance that I have read. Numbers 9 and 10 are not yet published and I was lucky to have a chance to read a review copy of each, but both were so good that they had to be on this list. I’ve posted a review on Wrong About the Guy and look for my review on Between Us and the Moon tomorrow morning! These are two 2015 releases you won’t want to pass up.

It’s been a while since I have done a Top Ten Tuesday and what better time to hop back on the wagon than now. As always Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is…

 Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books

1.) Katniss – The Hunger Games

2.) Triss – Divergent

3.) Hazel – The Fault in Our Stars

4.) Alaska – Looking for Alaska

   2767052 13335037 11870085 99561

5.) Grace – Shiver (Mercy Falls)

6.) Bianca – The DUFF

7.) Liv – Liv, Forever

8.) Sadie – Poor Little Dead Girls

6068551 6931356 18077961 17887925

9.) Bella – The Summer I Turned Pretty

10.) Emma – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

5821978 9460487

Those are my top ten and surprisingly more than half have been made into (or are in the process of being made into) movies. I wish this list could have been heroes in general because if so the list would have been very different including some of my favorite male characters.

So I skipped quite a few Tuesdays these past 2 months but I am back on the wagon! A perfect week to start Top Ten Tuesday because this week’s topic is Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To. There is a lot of 2014 releases I unfortunately did not get to last year so my top ones will make this list.

Since Last Summer by Joanna Philbin                  Nantucket Red by Leila Howland

                 18634795                               18453185

I read and loved both of the first novels of the above series and am so mad at myself that I have not read their sequels yet. I will definitely be reading these two soon.

                            Toxic by Sara Shepard                                                    Vicious by Sara Shepard              

                                  18599776                                            20958250           

                       Get Even by Gretchen McNeil                                   Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

                      20483075                                                         18189606

Two authors I absolutely love and can’t wait to read their new titles.

Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy                               We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

               18053148                                              16143347 

I’ve heard nothing but good things about both these books that were on my TBR list last year and that I never got around to reading.

Say Her Name by James Dawson                                 Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas

18621200                                          19732381

These both have been on my TBR list last year and I finally got both for Christmas because they had to be ordered from Book Depository since they haven’t (or at the time weren’t) published in the US.

Pointe by Brandy Colbert                                                  Feral by Holly Schindler

13360957                                           15782742

These two I forgot about for a while but they are both ones I cannot wait to read.

My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal

18465608

I have ordered this book 4 times, yes 4 times, and have yet to ever receive it in the mail. I have always been refunded after getting an email saying they are out of stock or they can’t find it or it was lost in the mail. I want to read this so bad! Hopefully the fifth time will be the charm.

So those are my 2014 releases that I never got around to reading. I couldn’t keep it down to 10 books so I had to add 3 extra. I’m hoping I get around to reading all 13 within the next 2 months, but knowing me it probably won’t happen.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they come up with a new topic for bloggers to post about and this week’s topic is, Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To In 2015. I have  an entire list on Goodreads dedicated to young adult books coming out in 2015. I don’t think this list necessarily has to 2015 debuts, but since I have a lot that I am looking forward to, I am going to pick my top ten from that list.

*in no particular order*

3.) The Rules by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie            4.) The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

22611701                                               22429350

20933641                                                                   17235448

Well I definitely surpassed ten books. There were just too many that I had to include on this list because I couldn’t narrow it down any further. I feel like I also only have a few genres on this list, YA romance, YA contemporary and YA thriller/mystery. I seriously cannot wait for all of these to come out and will probably preorder a few with gift cards I get for Christmas.

Surprisingly today is a double post day. I posted a book review earlier today and there was no way I was skipping out on this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week’s topic is…

Top Ten Tuesday 11/18/2014

top ten tuesday

Wow so it’s been a couple of shaky weeks since the end of October. I go to college five days a week, had to unfortunately drop one of my five classes, and I had been working close to 40 hours a week. I apologize for not keeping up on my posts. I have read a good amount of books between then and now and will hopefully get around to posting a review on all of them. Of course after so long it is a little difficult to review a book but if it comes to that I may just do a post with the titles and my rating for those books. I need to start keeping a book journal again so I can keep track of what I read when I’m done each book. I promise there will be more reviews now. I finally got my hours cut back (and yes I am happy about that) so I have a good amount of time in between my classes and when I have to be at work.

Now onto this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. I really like the topic this week because I am big on series/trilogies, so there are a good amount of sequels I am looking forward to. I’m not going to keep this list exclusive to books that have not come out yet because there are quite a few sequels that have been published and I just haven’t bought them yet. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week’s topic is…

Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait To Get

1.) P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han – This is the sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Loved the first book as well as Jenny Han’s other books as well.

15749186

2.) Fire with Fire by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian – Back to Jenny Han…I really liked Burn for Burn but haven’t had the chance to get Fire with Fire yet.

10662420

3.) Secrets and Lies by Jacqueline Green – Truth or Dare is definitely on my top ten list for this year and I am so anxious to read Secrets and Lies.

18431723

4.) Toxic (Pretty Little Liars #15) by Sara Shepard – I guess this isn’t considered a sequel but I’m still keeping it on my list. I am so happy that the series is finally coming to an end and cannot wait to see how it all ends.

18599776

5.) The Good Girls by Sara Shepard – Sequel to The Perfectionists and am sooo excited for this one to be released. I absolutely loved the first book and cannot wait to see where this series goes.

23171368

6.) Never Have I Ever (The Lying Game #2) by Sara Shepard – I started this series but have not got around to getting past the first book but I really want to read the whole series.

9266793

7.) The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin – I read the first book and was kind of confused but would love to reread it and then continue the trilogy because I hear so many good things about it.

13643567

8.) The Companion Novel to The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris – Not an actual sequel but I’m including it because it’s a companion novel and will have feature the same characters. I loved TFAOP and cannot wait for more.

17696131

9.) From Bad to Cursed by Katie Alender – I read Bad Girls Don’t Die a while ago and enjoyed it and would really like to read the other two in the trilogy.

9004758

10.) The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey – Loved, loved, loved The 5th Wave and cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel.

18249281

11.) Persuasion (The Heirs of Watson Island #2) by Martina Boone – I had to add a #11 because this is probably the most anticipated sequel on this list. Compulsion is so far my favorite book I have read in 2014 (or possibly ever) and so I am very excited for it’s sequel as well as the rest of the series.

20759498

This was actually harder than I thought. I own a lot of series or first books in a series that I haven’t read yet. I hate starting a series if I can’t continue it. I’m sure there is probably more I haven’t thought of but these are definitely the ones I am looking forward to the most.

I unfortunately missed out on last week’s Top Ten Tuesday which I am upset about because I really liked the topic. This week’s topic, Top Ten Books I Want To Reread, is a good one too because there is so many books that I would love to reread if I had the time. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books I Want To Reread

1.) The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han – I have read and reread this trilogy countless amounts of times.

2.) Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler – Also have read this book so many times.

3.) Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green

4.) Compulsion by Martina Boone

5.) The Bargaining by Carly Anne West

6.) Appaloosa Summer by Tudor Robins

7.) Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington

8.) Magnolia by Kristi Cook

9.) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

10.) Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

So that list was super easy to come up with. I know some people cannot or do not reread books but if I absolutely loved the book, I will reread it when I have some free time.

Top Ten Tuesday 10/21/2014

As promised, I am posting my Top Ten Tuesday post today. Unfortunately I didn’t finish my review that I wanted to post on Sunday. I am now scheduling it for this coming Thursday. I should have another review up on Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday. As always Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is…

Top New Series I Want To Start

1.) Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green

15777797

2.) Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

10637838

3.) The Enemy by Charlie Higson

8540357

4.) Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick

13267576

51olD9QEIEL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

6.) The Beach Lane Collection (The Au Pairs) by Melissa de la Cruz

13597728

10.) The Program by Suzanne Young

11366397

Not all of these series are “new” (as in they were released within the past 2 years) but they are all new to me because I haven’t read them yet. There’s a few other series that I want to start as well that I have heard good things about but unfortunately there wasn’t any more room on the list 😦 I’m actually beginning or planning on beginning Truth or Dare tomorrow and I have the first books in 7 out of the 10 series I have listed so I should probably read them and get into the series.

Top Ten Tuesday 10/07/2014

So last week I skipped Top Ten Tuesday and posted my monthly wrap up for September instead. I wasn’t into last week’s topic either. This week’s topic is Ten Books for Readers Who Like Character Driven Novels. Characters in a novel can make me love or hate a book, so this is going to be an easy week for me. Not all of these books may be published yet and if they aren’t be on the look out for them because they’re great!

Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like Character Driven Novels

1.) Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

2.) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

3.) Looking for Alaska by John Green

4.) Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington

5.) The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver (04/2015)

6.) All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (01/2015)

7.) The Summer of Letting Go by Gae Polisner

8.) Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

9.) The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard

10.) The Ruining by Anna Collomore

So there we go 🙂 Sorry there’s no pictures this week. I’m doing this post from my iPad and it gives me a terrible time when I try to upload photos in the post. All of the books on my list have also received a 4 or 5 star rating and are some of my favorites.
