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.

Own a Copy?: GalleyGrab
Why I Want It: I don't know much about Romeo and Juliet other than the Claire Danes and Leo DiCaprio movie (and the Cardigans' Lovefool), but I do know an almost-kissing cover when I see one and THIS, my friends, is an almost-kissing cover. I not-so-secretly adore them. I am not ashamed. And it says in the synopsis: Rose has been waiting for years for Rob to kiss her. SO PERFECT. There's kissing and it's from S&S. That's all I need.

Own a Copy? No
Why I Want to Read It: Melanie's review right here. When she uses words like BRILLAINT (and in all CAPS, hel-LO!) I can't help but want to devour it whole. She also uses the word mindf**k. Except without the asterisks. This shows that this book is probably the best thing I'll read since fellow mindf**k Frost. I love psychological thrillers and unreliable protagonists.
