Top Ten Tuesday (on a Thursday) – Spring TBR

So I didn’t get this up on Tuesday (we had a snow storm which was a mess) and I didn’t get this up yesterday (it was an ABCs day). I figure why not make it Top Ten Thursday so I can show off my possible Spring TBR. Without further ado…

A Court of Wings and Ruin – Sarah J. Maas (Top priority in May!!!)

Bad Romance – Heather Demetrios (reading this one soon)

In a Perfect World – Trish Doller

Twist – Kylie Scott

Goodbye Days – Jeff Zentner

These Things I’ve Done – Rebecca Phillips

The Thief – Megan Whalen Turner (No idea what it is about but made a deal with Gail)

Once and for All – Sarah Dessen

Here Lies Daniel Tate – Cristin Terrill

Coming Up for Air – Miranda Kenneally (I read a draft and I can’t wait to read it again!)

And there you have my Spring TBR…maybe, I think, we’ll see.

What is on your Spring TBR?

Top Ten (okay, Eight) Tuesday – Bah Bah Black Sheep

I hate when I feel like a black sheep with certain books. There is nothing worse than all of your reading people to fall in love with a book and then you read it and you hate it or are just  meh about it. You question what you missed that everyone else loved. But that just shows how not all books are for all people. Anyway, I have been pretty lucky for the most part with being a black sheep. I have 8 books that I came up with for today. Basically I decided this list by the rating being higher than a 4 on Goodreads and I either gave it no stars, 1 star or 2 stars.

Some Boys – 1 star

Safe Haven – 1 star

Winger – 2 stars

Don’t Look Back – 2 stars

I Hunt Killers – 2 stars

Unhinged – 2 stars

All the Bright Places – Couldn’t Rate

On the Island – 1 star

What books were you a black sheep on? Did any surprise you?

So here are my 10 favorite ships from books that I love:

Anna & Etienne

Froi & Quintana

Rhysand & Feyre

Josh & Nastya

Josh & Skylar

Annie & Jeremiah

Four & Tris

Who are you favorite ships?

Top Ten Tuesday – Books that Need More Kissing

I’m a romance junkie! There is nothing more that I love in a good book than a good romance. I love all the build-up that leads to the HEA. I even love the slow-burn, most of the time. Sometimes it makes me so crazy. I hate when the slow-burn makes me have to wait until page 298 of a 392 page book to get to the first kiss. Okay, so maybe I don’t love the slow-burn. 🙂

Anyway, here are my 10 books that need more kissing:

Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins

Open Road Summer – Emery Lord

What Happens Next – Colleen Clayton

Jellicoe Road – Melina Marchetta

Alex, Approximately – Jenn Bennett

All in Pieces – Suzanne Young

I’ll Meet You There – Heather Demetrios

Since You’ve Been Gone – Morgan Matson

Divergent – Veronica Roth

In Real Life – Jessica Love

Top Ten Tuesday – Books Some Friends Need to Read

The past couple of years I have been in a Fantasy Football group and in the off season we talk a lot of books. Over the course of these two years I have learned that my friends have yet to  read some of my all time favorite books and it makes me die a little on the inside when they tell me this or I see it on Goodreads.

When talking to one of the girls about today’s TTT being a freebie it came to me, the perfect topic, Books Some Friends Need to Read. I swear it is my goal to get them to read these gems and I will succeed.

Lindsay – She has yet to read All in Pieces and it kills me just a little bit every time I realize it. In all fairness she is pretty good at reading what I tell her to, when I tell her, but she has alluded me with this one and I’m not going to stand for it much longer.

Danielle – I constantly bug her to read Parallel but she has yet to cave. She loved Lauren Miller’s over book, Free to Fall, but she worries about this with a triangle like quality that I assure her isn’t a bug deal. I will win this battle some day. I know I will.

Mary – I recently learned that Mary, a massive A Court of Thorns and Roses fan, has yet to read the Throne of Glass series. She “claims” she will read them all after the final book is out this year but I may have to hound her a little to make sure.

Tonya – I just learned yesterday that Tonya has yet to read Sarah Ockler’s take on The Little Mermaid, The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, and it hurt my heart. This book was so great and I really think she would enjoy it.

Ellice – Talking about ALA, Ellice informed me that she hasn’t read Suzanne Young’s series, The Program. GAH this hurts. EVERYONE needs to read The Program. It is such a great, twisty tale through a fantastic world that Young created. Yup, I’ll be bugging her now that I know this.

Lauren – Travesty. It is a travesty that Lauren hasn’t read Finnikin of the Rock. In fairness I almost didn’t either and I wasn’t in love with Finnikin (3 stars) but the other two books in the series are so worth it. I think she needs to dive right in.

Isalys – I don’t know why I’m letting her get away with this. She needs to read my favorite Sarah Ockler book, Twenty Boy Summer, and she needs to do it soon. I’ll talk to her about this situation the next time I see her (soon I hope).

Sarah – I admit that she usually listens to my suggestions. But for some reason I saw yesterday that she hasn’t read one of my favorites from last year, The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love. She’s gonna need to get on that. The role New York plays in the book is alone worth the read.

Jess and Morgan – I don’t know how both of these co-bloggers managed to get out of my grasp when I did a massive push for The Distance from A to Z last year, but they are in my sights now. READ READ READ.

Wendy – This one really really really hurts. It hurts so much that I was mean enough to post a football gif that was not nice to Wendy and her team. But come on, you have to read my favorite book Anna and the French Kiss. How are we even friends if you haven’t read my book? I will win this war even if I have to play dirty.

And there you have it, books I think my friends need to read.

What books do you think your friends should read? Do you still need to read this (I will make you all read Anna if it is the last thing I do!)?
