Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish!
10. The Nine Lives of Chloe King by Liz Braswell
This was made into an ABCFamily show a few years ago, and though I never really watched it, I did catch a bit here and there, and the concept seemed really interesting, and the guy was hot. So yeah, I definitely want to read this. Looking into getting the bind-up of all three books for Christmas!
9. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
This sounds like one of those adorable contemporary reads, and I've been meaning to read it for FOREVER. I found a paperback copy of it at the Half Price Books HUGE clearance sale a few weeks ago, but it wasn't in the BEST condition, and it got left behind in exchange for some other, better conditioned books. And a few days later, I found a hardcover copy of it at a garage sale...missing a dust jacket! So it WILL happen sooner or later!
8. The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta
I've heard AMAZING things about Melina Marchetta and her writing, and this series sounds so entertaining. I've gotten really into high fantasy, so these books sound right up my alley!
7. Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
For the LONGEST time, I put off even reading the synopsis of this book because the cover put me off so badly. But I have a friend who doesn't like a lot of young adult novels, and this is one of her favorite series. So when the movie came out in February, I went to see it with her and ended up loving it. So I figured I really should go ahead and read the series. And now that the boxset is out with the slightly better covers, what better time to ask for the set for Christmas!
6. Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor
Once again, high fantasy series that has gotten rave reviews and is adored by many booktubers I follow. So yeah, need this series!
5. Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness
I've wanted to read this trilogy for a long time, and that desire has only gotten greater since I bought and read A Monster Calls.
4. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Three books in this series have been released. THREE. And I've been wanting to start it since Cinder came out! So why have I not started it yet? Not sure. Asking for Christmas! Christmas's book haul is probably going to be huge...
3. The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare
I've only read City of Bones from The Mortal Instruments so far, but I've heard that this series is even better. Shadowhunters. Victorian London. Slightly steampunk. And hot guys. Need I say more?
2. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
My mom and I saw this at Barnes and Noble last Christmas, and for some reason, I was just sort of "meh" about it when she picked it up. So we never got it. I have absolutely NO idea what I was thinking. This sounds AMAZING. And the second book comes out next month!
1. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
I'm determined to become a Morgan Matson fangirl. This book came out FOUR years ago, but I haven't really heard of it until now. Morgan's latest book, Since You've Been Gone, came out this summer, and everyone has loved it. So I guess her previous books have just been rising in popularity again now. And Amy and Roger sounds like the PERFECT contemporary, so this is SUCH a priority for Christmas. Or maybe even before then...
