Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
This week’s topic is: Top Ten Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List (to be read list)
I’m enjoying the start of Autumn down here in Australia. The weather is starting to cool off slightly so going outside is almost bearable! 😛
Autumn 2014 Releases I Can’t Wait To Read:
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (April 17th, 2014) – I love this series and can’t wait to find out what happens next. It’s beautifully written and a series I recommend to adult sand young adults alike.
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E Smith (April 10th, 2014 ) – This is What Happy Looks Like and The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight were both lovely reads and I’m looking forward to this next book by Jennifer E Smith
Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong (April 8th, 2014 ) – I’ve been on a bit of a Kelley Armstrong kick lately. It might because Bitten was turned into a TV show or it might just be that I discovered my Women of the Otherworld books in a box a few months ago… but she’s a great writer and I enjoy the worlds and characters she creates.
Books On My Bedside Table
These are the books I have gotten for review that I’m reading in the next few weeks.
The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas – A set of short stories which show just how Celaena Sardothien became the legend assassin that we’ve come to know and love from the Throne of Glass series. This book can be read without prior knowledge of the series.
Emnity by CJ Andrews – A new dystopia novel by a debut New Zealand author.
Dangerous by Shannon Hale – A teen goes off to space camp and finds herself changed in ways she never expected.
Unnatural Creatures by Neil Gaiman – This is a book of short stories selected by Neil Gaiman. It’s lovely. Before each story, Neil gives a little introduction as to why he selected the story and it makes the compliation that extra special.
The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M Valante – A lovely middle grade book about a girl named September and her journeys to Fairyland
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavendar by Leslye Walton – This book is gorgeous. I love the cover and it sounds equal parts emotional and beautiful.
Reviews for these books will be posted on my goodreads and The Reading Room accounts but not on this blog.
The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon – This is a dystopian along the same lines of 1984. It’s not set in a post apocalyptic world but the world is changing. People over reliant on their smartphone type accessories are losing words and books are becoming extinct. There’s a mystery involving a missing person and secret society. Sounds incredible.
The Tea Chest by Josephine Moon – This is a story about a woman who gets inherited a unique tea store and along with others, she has to try to keep it afloat whilst maintaining her own life.
Forever and Always on my TBR List
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand – because I’ve been trying to finish this book for over ten years… and that alone makes me feel old 😛
