I apologise for the lack of posts! In short, I have a lot of projects and exams at the moment and have basically been freaking out by writing 7k of Simon Snow fanfic instead of attending to my blog, (Yay for procrastination! -_- But, yeah, it’s the first longer project I’ve done in a long time so I’m quite pleased in a way?)
It’s been a little while since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday, but HEY! I am Divergent! I cannot be predicted! I will do link-ups as I please even though it’s not in an ordered way! Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by The Broke and Bookish, and this week the prompt is Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List.
1. Fairest by Marissa Meyer
I haven’t read it yet… *sighs* It seems to be rather hard to get hold of here, but that’s not really a great excuse. I’ll be trying to read it soon.
2. Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story by David Levithan
It’s a freaking Will Grayson spin-off. Very excited by this. Very. It comes out today.
3. Half Wild by Sally Green
Loved Half Bad, but some reviews complain of the copious amounts Annalise present in the sequel, which worries me slightly. Annalise is rubbish. Gabriel is way more awesome.
4. The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
It looks like a cool book. Cool cover. ‘Nuff said.
5. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
(May is totally still spring.) HAVE I TOLD YOU HOW EXCITED BY THIS no okay well here’s a gif to describe how I feel
Also GOING TO MEET SARAH J MAAS EEK
6. The Heir by Keira Cass
The Selection isn’t one of my absolute favourites, but it was a fun read and I’m interested to see if keria Cass can get an more out of the idea. (I’m not going to lie, I felt like The One had a pretty final ending, but ah well. Still excited.)
7. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I want to read this one so bad. London! History! Parallel worlds! Plus, both the UK and US covers are simply gorgeous.
8. We All Looked up by Tommy Wallach
I love this cover. It’s work of genius. I don’t really know what the books is about, but I’M TOTALLY ALLOWED TO PUT THIS ON MY LIST FOR THE COVER RIGHT
9. Smart by Kim Slater
If it doesn’t get through to the Carnegie shortlist then I’ll probably read it anyway, because it looks pretty cool. Yeah. Also, I know I’ve said a lot about covers but this one is also rather pretty.
10. Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes
I’m getting strong We Were Liars plus Dangerous Girls vibes from this. Plus more cool covers. I MEAN LOOK AT IT ISN’T THAT CREEPY
So, that was basically about 300 words of me flailing about book covers. If this is now a thing, then I like it. Hopefully you’ll get updates on my fic writing and such, but I might be a bit MIA until next Tuesday, when my last project is due. I’ll see you then! If I make it out alive
(And psst, I got twitter. I’m quite liking it so far?)
