Disclaimer: these are books that I WANT to read and are on my TBR list, not books that I necessarily own (unfortunately!) And if I do have any of them on my shelf, I'll specify :)
A Peek At My TBR is a feature inspired by Waiting on Wednesday by Jill at Breaking the Spine and Books To Pine For by The Story Siren. I did WoW for awhile, but honestly, there's never only one book I'm "waiting" on. And a lot of the books that I "pine for" aren't just up-and-coming books. There's still a ton of oldies but goodies that I'm just now discovering or want to read soon, and I feel like those deserve some recognition as well as the fresh meat.
After Obsession by Carrie Jones and S.E. Wedel
Published: September 5, 2011
I really freaking loved Carrie's first novel, Need. Not too much a fan of Captivate and haven't yet read Entice, but I'm loving the premise for this future release. And yes, I love the cover, too. coughCOVERWHOREcough. The idea of possession by a river spirit is pretty scary to me. The idea of possession by ANYTHING AT ALL is petrifying, truly. But when a book has a cover like that, I'm willing to face my fear for the sake of an awesome storyline.
Other Words For Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
Published: January 11, 2011
I do have this book, but review books keep getting in the way of it. I have heard RAVE reviews of this book and I cannot wait to dig in myself. I've never been to New York (though I hope to some day!) but that doesn't mean I can't read about it and get myself pumped up for BEA 2012! (Crossing fingers that BEA 2012 actually happens for me.) Plus, it looks like a good, emotionally charged read. Those are my FAVORITE kinds of reads. Yay for books that make you feel ANYTHING.
Valiant by Holly Black
Published: June 19, 2006
I read Tithe back in 2009 and really freaking liked it. I am a huge fan of dark faerie tales. Duh, do I really need to point that out?! I have since bought the final two books in that series, but just haven't gotten around to reading them. I'll be honest, I was put off by the fact that Valiant doesn't feature Kaye and Roiben. But they are short reads and they have awesome covers and I absolutely want to read them sometime in the next 5 years. I need my faerie fix, dangit!
Have you guys read any of these? TELL ME ABOUT IT!
