A Peek at my TBR (18)

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.
Then You Were Gone by Lauren Strasnick

Own a Copy?: No
Why I Want It: You guys, this book sounds straight up HAUNTING. There are all kinds of characteristics that could make this book something amazing. Plus, Simon Pulse never lets me down. Rumors, suicide notes, a missed call, a muffled voicemail from your best friend. This reeks of a mysterious, "up all night to finish because I will die if I don't," addicting reading experience. I cannot wait.

Until There Was You by Kristan Higgins

Why I Want to Read It: Well, Ginger tells me to read something and I usually do it. Sure, this isn't YA. But it'll be nice to swoon over a love interest that isn't 10 years my junior. OH, THE CREEPY PART OF YA. Anyway, this book sounds like one of those perfect, romantic feel-good books that I have come to know and love. Plus, she's not in high school, so automatically more relatable. Can't wait to dive into this one.

  1. Then You Were Gone is on my radar too. Sound fabulous!

    I've yet to read a Kristan Higgins but I see her name EVERYWHERE. Perhaps I should swoon as well?

  2. This made me laugh out loud: " But it'll be nice to swoon over a love interest that isn't 10 years my junior. OH, THE CREEPY PART OF YA." I hear ya!

  4. Kristan Higgins HAS BEEN HAUNTING ME. I feel like I see tons of people reading her books and I think it's about time I LEARN WHY. I love titles like Then You Were Gone. the book sounds good but that four word title is really doing something for me. Creepy stuff, though, tends to be hard for me to swallow.

  7. I've been reading more adult historical romance and contemporary romance and it's a nice change of pace at times. :)
