Back for another week is the Top Ten Tuesday book meme hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish. Visit the blog if you haven’t and check out the rest of the TTTs from other bloggers!
It’s been a long week and I did have to take a bit of a break for RL dramas, but I really like doing Most Anticipated Of TTTs. So if you have any to add to my list, leave a comment or leave the link to your own TTT!
Come on, who wasn’t expecting this one from me? I didn’t read the greek myth series by Rick Riordan, but this. is. ASGARD! Can you picture a halfling of Thor and Loki running around Earth? October can’t get here fast enough!
This is a very long overdue sequel. I really want to see how Scout turned out as an adult. This is one of the very few southern setting books I can actually stomach reading.
I don’t think I’ll ever be finished listing the awesomeness that is Sherlockian re-writes! And because of the wonderfull BBC drama, the past 2-3 years has been full of them. What sets Lock & Mori apart is not only do we get a teen Sherlock, but we get a female teen Morarity. Dun dun DUN!
Aliens, assassins, and this:
After Sai’s newly awoken psionic power accidentally destroys her apartment complex, she’s thrown into an intensive training program. The only grades are pass or die.
I have to say this is right up my alley. It’s a carnival setting with a “freak show” vibe and a heroine that’s not entirely human. I really, really want.
I don’t know if I actually want to read this book or if I just have to read this book because of the blurb.
Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn in this one-of-a-kind romantic horror.
What does it mean?! How can someone pack two categories in one book? Did it work? >.> I’m skeptical. But intrigued.
It’ basically about dealing with people with advanced mental diseases, but loving them anyway. I love psychological books and the characters April and Jonah sound interesting with a healthy dose of schizophrenia thrown in the loop.
This seems like a wonderfully sad story with a beautiful cover. Suzy’s best friend died in a drowning accident, but she’s convinced herself it’s from a rare jellyfish sting and she goes on a journey to prove it.
This is the last volume in Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye series and it just will not come out! It seems like I’ve been waiting for it to come out for forever. I’ve always had a soft spot for the less “super” superheroes, especially the archers since I practice a bit myself, and I have loved Matt Fraction’s version of Hawkeye immensely and hate to see him go.
10. William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh (William Shakespeare’s Star Wars #2) by Ian Doescher
I have really enjoyed reading this series of books. You combine snarky Shakespeare insults with Star Wars characters and I’m a fan for life (and my family/co-workers all roll their eyes. thanks, guys).
