A Peek at My TBR (16)

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.

When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle
Published: May 1, 2012
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.

Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick
Published: February 1, 2012
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.


  1. I really want to read Drowning Instinct too! I've read a lot of great reviews, plus I liked her other book Ashes.

  2. Yes. Drowning Instinct. Definitely worth it.

    Here’s my thoughts.

  3. You HAVE to read When You Were Mine I absolutely loved that book!

  4. I've heard great things about BOTH of these books. Tee over at YA Crush loved WYWM, and Kelly at Stacked loved Drowning Instinct!

  5. Um woah! You have a new look & I LOVE IT!!!! Also, I picked up When You Were Mine at ALA b/c it looks fantastic!!

  6. I'm very excited to read When You Were Mine. I haven't heard of Drowning Instinct. It sounds good though! I've heard great things about her other novel, Ashes.
