Top 10 Tuesday (14). Freebie.

This week is a freebie! I decided to show my top 10 books I want to read during my vacation.

Enchanted1. Veronica Roth - Divergent. I won this book a while ago and I'm so glad that I finally have the chance to read it. After reading all those raving reviews, I can't wait to dive into it.
2. Marissa Meyer - Cinder. Bought this week (as you could see in my Showcase Sunday). Fairytale retelling, that's all I have to say.
3. Philippa Gregory - Changeling. Also a book I won in a giveaway. I love her other works, so I'm looking forward to see if she can write a good YA.
4. Lauren Oliver - Delirium. The positive reviews make me so anxious to read this book. It sounds really good.
5. Alethea Kontis - Enchanted. Fairytale retellings. The frog prince. What else do I need to say?
Everneath (Everneath, #1)6. Brodi Ashton - Everneath. First, the cover is gorgeous. Second, I like mythology. So I had to put this one in the list.
7. Jennifer E. Smith - The statistical probability of love at first sights. Huge title, but I think I quite like it. I've been hearing so many things about this one, I can no longer ignore it. During the vacation I tend to like a romantic, fluffy read.
8. Kathleen Peacock - Hemlock. One word: werewolves.
9. Lauren DeStefano - Fever. Although Wither is not the best book I've ever read, I quite liked it and I can't wait to find out what happens next.
10. Julie Kagawa - The iron fey. After reading her phenomenal 'The immortal rules' I can't wait to read another book from her.

There are much more books I want to read - of course, but I thought it might be fun to show you the highlights on my list. Some other books on the list are 'Sweet evil, Of Poseidon, Grave Mercy, Anna and the french kiss, Incarnate, The catastrophic history of you and me, Wanderdust, A temptation of Angels, The hedgewitch queen, Article 5, The fault in our stars, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In a Ship of Her Own Making, Born wicked, The alchemy of forever & The vicious deep.'

Oh, how I love vacations. Spending all my free time on reading books, that's one of the best things in the world.

So, what did you pick? And if you read any of these books, let me know what you thought about them!

  11. Divergent is great! I hope you like it. I wasn't too impressed with Delirium, though, but many people seem to be fans.

    I hope you enjoy your vacation and your books!

  14. I really enjoyed Divergent and Delirium. Also The Iron Fey series is one of my fave series as well. You have some great books to look forward to reading!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I want to read Cinder too, but I have too many books to read already this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  16. There are some books on your list that I've read. DIVERGENT is a must-read. Absolutely! And I hope you've got INSURGENT on your TBR, because you'll want to read that soon after! :) You mentioned wanting to read THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, which is an excellent book. Very well written, and a funny and heart-wrenching story. It's John Green--we expect nothing less!

    CINDER's on my TBR list too. :)

    I hope you have a great summer, and enjoy every book you read!

  18. What a great list! I hope you'll enjoy all of them, though I have to warn you: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was not fluffy or overly romantic. Actually, it felt like it was lot about her problems with her father, and the 'solution' didn't feel right to me, though that might be because I'm daddy-issued. *g*

  19. You've got a lot of really awesome books to look forward to there! Hope you enjoy them, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  20. You need to hurry up and read Divergent just so that you can get to Insurgent! It was even better than Divergent.

    The Fault in Our Stars is also on my list. I bought it when it first came out and still haven't read it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. These are all books I either loved or really want to read, too! There are just too many and I don't have the time :/

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sounds like you have a great list. I love how relaxing it is to read while on vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Awesome choices! I hope you love Delirium! It's one of my favorites.
    Fever I actually don't think was as good as Wither, but it is quite different - so if you weren't terribly thrilled with Wither, hopefully Fever picks up something new for you :)
    The rest look awesome as well. Happy reading!
