Top Ten Tuesday REWIND.
I'm going to pick:
Top Ten Books I'm Dying to Read.
I'm trying to feature books I haven't featured in WoW yet.
I don't have to think hard about my first book. I. Need. This. One.
Just look at it? The cover is definitely one of my favorite covers out there. I'm in love with it. And have you read the blurb already? Part of it that really fascinates me:
Here, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
2. Juliet Marillier - Flame of Sevenwaters.
This is part six of Seven Waters. This story will be about Maeve, the girl who was badly burned during book three. Some of my favorite characters will return.
Sevenwaters is in turmoil. The fey prince Mac Dara has become desperate to see his only son, who is married to Maeve’s sister, return to the Otherworld. To force Lord Sean’s hand, Mac Dara has caused a party of innocent travelers on the Sevenwaters border to vanish.
3. Stefan Bachmann - The peculiar 2. Not title yet.
I liked the first book: The peculiar. I can't wait to see how this is going to continue.
4. Melanie Dickerson - The fairest beauty.
Snow white retelling? Count me in.
A daring rescue. A difficult choice. Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother's jealousy, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be Sophie's one chance at freedom---but can she trust another person to keep her safe?5. Emily McKay - The farm.
One of the main characters is called 'Mel' so that's great!
Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…
6. Daniel Waters - Break my heart a 1,000 times.
This concept is scary and fascinating. I can't wait to see how this will work out.
One of Veronica's high school teachers is crippled by the fact that his dead daughter has never returned as a ghost, and he's haunted by the possibility that she's waiting to reappear within a fresh body. Veronica seems like the perfect host. And even if he's wrong, what's the harm in creating one more ghost?
7. Miriam Forster - City of a thousand dolls.
Look at the cover? Isn't it gorgeous. I love books about assassins.
The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.
Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins.
8. Marissa Meyer - Scarlet.
After the magnificent Cinder I have to find out how this story is going to unravel.
As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.
9. Veronica Roth - Untitled Divergent 3.
After the amazing Divergent and the slight disappointing Insurgent, I'm looking forward to see how this story is going to end. I hope it's just as good as Divergent.
10. Jessica Brody - Unremembered.
Exciting! I like books about losing your memory.
When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.
This list was actually harder than expected. When you have a huge list that's never-ending, it's almost impossible to pick out the ones you are dying for. Number 1, 2, 3, 8 and 9 are definitely books I would like to have right now. The others sound fantastic, but there were so many of them, I just picked them out from the 'can't-wait' Goodreads shelve.
