Today’s Top Ten Tuesday was pretty simple. I recently went to ALA-MW and picked up a bunch of books I haven’t heard of but sounded good so that covered 8 of the newest additions to my TBR (I got like 32 books total). And the other 2 were books I should have added sooner and hadn’t. All sound equally fantastic, even the one that doesn’t have a description.
You Know Me Well – Nina LaCour & David Levithan I love Nina LaCour books and I love the sound of this one. It should have been on my radar before but for some reason I missed it.
The Goal – Elle Kennedy: There is no description but this is the 4th book in the “Off Campus” series and is supposed to be about Tucker. I needs it!
A Walk in the Sun – Michelle Zink: I was told at ALA that I needed this book so I took this book.I have never read a Michelle Zink book so I figured why not.
The Secret Language of Sister – Luanne Rice: I’m not sure when or how this ended up in my ALA pile but it did and I can’t say I’m sorry. I love stories about sisters and accidents that happen that leaves one “behind”.
Two Summer – Aimee Friedman: The friend I was with knew Aimee and was asking for her book so I got one too. I hadn’t heard of it before but I’m really excited for it. Aimee was sweet and even signed my copy. The back mentions parallel worlds so I was sold at parallel.
Hurricane Kiss – Deborah Blumenthal: One of my ALA roomies was determined to get this book. Since we tend to like some of the same stuff I followed her lead and grabbed one. I love that they are stuck in an abandoned high school. This looks like a good one.
Highly Illogical Behavior – John Corey Whaley: I was with Ginger when she waited in line for this one (the only line, minus the free champagne line, that I waited in for a book) and she couldn’t say enough good things about the author. I have never read anything by him so I’m looking forward to it.
Listen to Me – Kristen Proby: Not gonna lie, no idea what this book is even about. Friend said you may like this, I said okay and added it to my TBR. Looks like it involves music and romance so I’m in.
The Memory Book – Lara Avery: When I was wandering ALA on the Sunday I came across this book. I had read Lara Avery’s debut and enjoyed and I loved the sound of this one. It was a no brainer to take a copy.
Future Shock – Elizabeth Briggs: I got this book purely because Karen Akins told me to. She said I should get a copy so I got a copy. I even got to met the author and get it signed. Come to find out her and Karen are critic partners so even better. Plus Karen knows I love my time travel stories.
What have you added to your TBR recently?

You picked up some awesome books at ALA! And I’m dying to read You Know Me Well and The Goal too. Fun list!
Excited for the new Aimee Friedman – I hope you enjoy it!
I can’t believe I missed Two Summers at ALA!!! UGH. I read her books back in high school and obviously love the parallel story. Sigh. Can’t want for it!
