I don’t read autobiographies/biographies, but look at this! As a kid I loved the choose your own adventure books. Neil Patrick Harris created his autobiography in the same way. Here’s part of the blurb:
Choose correctly and you’ll find fame, fortune, and true love. Choose incorrectly and you’ll find misery, heartbreak, and a hideous death by piranhas. All this, plus magic tricks, cocktail recipes, embarrassing pictures from your time as a child actor, and even a closing song.
Broadchurch is a BBC show that enthralled me from the first episode. I usually don’t read books that are based on TV shows or movies, but I’m really wanting to see how this one turns out.
Machine of Death: A Collection of Stories About People Who Know How They Will Die (Machine of Death #1)
This one has been on my to-be-read shelf for awhile now but keeps getting pushed back. I really, really want to read it though. Basically the machine takes a sample of your blood and spits out a slip of paper tell you how you’re going to die. Some of the stories are supposed to be ironic and others just plain hilarious.
This this sounds so intriguing. A hot male librarian that is pure evil and sucking the life out the the student body. If that’s not enough to attract you just take a look at the cover.
A cheeky paranormal detective novel that is captioned as “Doctor Who meets Sherlock”? Yes, please. If not that, I love how the title rolls off the tongue. I really want to get started on this one.
I’ve heard mixed reviews on this novel, but I’ve got to read it for myself. It seems like it would be a nice little read.
I’ve heard mostly good reviews from other bloggers about this one, but I’ve yet to read it for myself. It’s on my night stand with the other stacks on my to-be-read list, so maybe I’ll finally get around to reading it.
As a Shakespeare geek, I had to add this one. It’s a retelling of Romeo and Juliet, but using Romeo’s cousin Benvolio as the main character. It’s written by the author of the Morganville Vampire series as well.
