Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Really Want To Read But Don't Own Yet

Made it just in time! I love reading these Top Ten Tuesday posts from other blogs because it's such a great way to find new books that would not have been on my book radar otherwise! So now that I have my own blog, I've decided I'm joining in on the fun. :D

- - - Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, where a new topic is given for a top ten list - - -

1. Dreamer by Patrick O'Scheen
'The main character, Magic, flows between the worlds, often preferring one more than the other. Both of his lives are fraught with their own dangers.' What can I say, I couldn't turn away from the cover. But besides that, the whole being able to go between parallel universes intrigues me.

2. Sugar Rush by Belle Aurora
I loved Max in Friend-Zoned. He was amusing and so incredibly sweet to his daughter (that's right, we have a swoony single-dad here). I need to know that he gets his happily-ever-after!!
3. Crow's Row by Julie Hockley
I've heard good things about this one. Girl falls in love with bad boy. Not just any bad boy though, she falls for her captor. I love how the cover is just a black crow, it's ominous but it also draws me in.
4. Slammed by Colleen Hoover
I finished reading Maybe Someday (my first CoHo read) earlier this month and fell in love with her writing style. I loved the way music was incorporated into the book and I'm really interested in how she'll work
slam poetry into this one.
5. Deacon by Kristen Ashley
KA is my go-to contemporary romance author. Although I've found that her most recent books haven't been as superb as her 'classics', it won't stop me from getting all excited about her next Unfinished Heroes novel!
6. The Raven by Sylvain Reynard
'When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley...When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed.Dum, dum duuuum. The blurb says it all. It reeks of dark awesomeness and mystery. Plus the cover is gorgeous!
7. Sweet Fall by Tillie Cole
Looking forward to reading the next book in the Sweet Home series! This book seems like it's going to be a tad darker than the first two though, which I found light and amusing.
8. Bang by E.K. Blair
Every once in awhile I like to read a book that will make me want to pull out my hair and scream 'wtf!' (you know, throwing some variety in the mix) I heard this book will blow your mind, I want it.
9. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I kept seeing The Book of Life every where. At the book store, at the campus book store, online book vendors. I wanna see what the fuss is about so I need to start book one!! It has witches and vampires though, that makes it a must-read in my mind.
10. Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie
"Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off of trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me.” Hook, line and sinker. I'm a huge KB fangirl and will no doubt get this the minute it goes live, but I'm also interested in seeing how  a love story revolving the circus and its performers will turn out!


  1. Love that Slammed is on your list! It is one of my faves!

  2. I really enjoyed the Slammed series - Will is such a sweetheart. I'm looking forward to Amour Amour too. :)

  3. I didn't love Maybe Someday, but I have two friends who have been pushing me to read Slammed! Will definitely read it at some point. :) I'm also thinking of reading A Discovery of Witches, but for now, I'm not that sure. DEFINITELY excited for Amour Amour. <3
