A Peek at My TBR (17)

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.

The Evolution of Mara Dyer
Published: October 23, 2012
Own a Copy?: WAHHH.
Why I Want It: Mara Dyer was arguably my favorite read of 2011. I COULD NOT BRING IT IN MYSELF TO PUT IT DOWN. The romance. The mystery. And HELLO, unreliable protagonist. You might just be my absolute favorite aspect of any YA book ever. (Besides fanning myself, "I need a moment" romance.) I would do most anything to get my hands on this book. I WOULD HUNT UNICORNS. Oh, and in case you don't believe my love, here's my review of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.

7 Clues to Winning You by Kristin Walker

Own a Copy? No
Why I Want to Read It: A Match Made in High School was EFFING hilarious and fun and I can only imagine what K. Walker has stirred up next. This one comes out soon, so I might need to get my Amazon on. AMAZON PRIME, FTW!

Edit: Aw, man. This is already out. But it wasn't when I wrote this post. WHOOPS.


  1. I loved A Match Made in High School as well! :) Of course I want to read Evolution of Mara Dyer as well :)

  2. Even though Mara Dyer posed some serious wtf-ery, I will of course be reading the next one! I have to know what happens... plus Noah Shaw is like hot as hell.

  3. I am so excited for Mara Dyer- I just read the first book this year and was hooked. It's my favorite book that I've read this year so far. Great pick!

  4. Kristin Walker! YES, I would totally read this books. Seems like the laughfest type of book you and I usually bond over <3

  5. Interesting choice,Jen!
    I'm new follower.

  6. I love your edit. <3
    I haven't read Mara Dyer. I'm always behind when I come to your blog WHY WHY WHY?

  7. Oh, I NEED Mara #2 like, yesterday. NOAH SHAW. I freaked out when it said 270 pages on Goodreads. (It's not, BTW)

  8. OMG OMG OMG MARA DYER I need it now! I freakin loved that book and cannot WAIT for more!!

  9. I have not read a good unreliable protagonist in forever. I have been shying away from Mara Dyer (unclear why). But I will get involved!

  10. Um, The Evolution of Mara Dyer? Heck freaking yes! I loved the first book and after I turned the last page I just kept flipping it back in disbelief. I need the sequel stat!
    7 Clues To Winning You looks Sooooo cute. I can't wait to get my hands on it. Hopefully it comes in at the library soon :D
