I really love doing the Top Ten Tuesday Season TBR Prompt, there’s something about accountability and then the feelings of winning and awesome that I get when I actually read all of the books on my Seasonal TBR. Like, I just finished reading ALL OF THE BOOKS on my Fall 2013 TBR and am super excited to get cracking with the books on my Winter 2013 TBR. So, what’s on my TBR?
Winter Town by Stephen Emond
Why Is This On My TBR?: I added Winter Town mainly for it’s winter theme and also because I love the cover and I have had this book on my TBR since 2011, it is time to read it and move on. Also, I love the idea of a graphic novel interspersing a traditional novel, in a sense. It just sounds like a cool book.
Cracked by KM Walton
Why Is This On My TBR?: I always see this book on my various piles and get tempted to read it, but then just choose something else instead. It looks like Cracked will be a hard hitting read, so I am saving it for a day when I need a good punch in the feels.
Sorrow’s Knot by Erin Bow
Why Is This On My TBR?: Have you guys read Plain Kate? That book is so legit, so I am so excited to read Bow’s next book. I’ve heard it is really good.
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Why Is This On My TBR?: DAT COVER. No, but really I just love Beauty And The Beast retellings.
Afterparty by Ann Redisch Stampler
Why Is This On My TBR?: I really enjoyed Stampler’s debut Where It Began even though it made me blindrage. I am okay with that. I am expecting this book will provoke my reactions as well.
The Creature Department by Robert Paul Weston
Why Is This On My TBR?: Of course, I stinking LOVE the cover, it is bright and colorful and glows in the dark, therefore perfect for me. Also, the concept is awesome – it’s about bringing movie creatures to life. AND THERE ARE PICTURES. I am excited you guys.
The Strange And Beautiful Sorrows Of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
Why Is This On My TBR?: Here is the thing, Candlewick Press releases such gorgeous literary children’s and YA fiction, that I know I can turn to their books when I am in need of a book that will blow me over with it’s words. This is one that they seem to really be behind and I am going to trust that and give it a shot. Also? It sounds great.
Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor
Why Is This On My TBR?: In reading that back cover, I feel that I am being promised SOBS. You guys this book better give me emotions OR ELSE.
Control by Lydia Kang
Why Is This On My TBR?: So, I actually plan on reading this within the next two weeks — I think that it sounds really good. The cover calls it a spiraling, intense, romantic read — so basically it was using adjectives that catch my attention.
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Why Is This On My TBR?: No explanation needed. Either you know my feels or you don’t.
