Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My TBR List


So, starting off this list, my current problem is that I have already demolished most of my summer reading list.  I started it in May and I've finished everything on it that I can get from the library.  So I'm going to have to hunt for some more books to add to this list!

1. First Date by Krista McGee
Not sure where I first heard about this book, but I've definitely had an interest in books reminiscent of The Bachelor and the book of Esther lately.  I would've already read this, but my library system doesn't seem to have it.

2. Starring Me by Krista McGee
From the summary, this is kind of like a sequel to First Date with characters from the first book appearing.  Either way, it has a cool premise and both books seem to have a Christian basis.

3. I'm No Angel by Kylie Bisutti
Yay for memoirs!  This book is a memoir by a former Victoria's Secret Angel who left the modeling world because she realized it didn't agree with her Christian beliefs.  I'll be honest-I usually hate non-fiction.  But this one sounds like it'll be really good.

4. Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
A couple bloggers I follow have mentioned this book, and my interest has been peaked.  It's actually in the stack of library books on my bedroom floor right now, so I'll be reading it in the next few days.

5. United We Spy by Ally Carter
Yeah, I know.  This isn't coming out until September.  But I'm super excited for the last Gallagher Girls book and it deserves a spot on my TBR list.

6. Camp Boyfriend by J.K. Rock
Sunny Duvall over at Blue Sky Bookshelf has this on her Top Ten Tuesday list for today, and I looked it up on Goodreads.  It sounds pretty interesting, so when it comes out, I might give it a try. :)

7. Divergent by Veronica Roth
Y'all have no idea how many times I've tried to read Divergent.  According to my library record, I've checked it out five times in the last nine months.  It'll sit in my stack of library books until it's due, and then I'll return it.  My BFFE really likes it, and it's set in Chicago, so I really want to read it and like it.  Maybe this summer...

8. Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink and Confederates Don't Wear Couture by Stephanie Kate Strohm
Just a book and its sequel that caught my eye. :)

9. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
This, like United We Spy, isn't coming out until September, but hey, I read voraciously all year long.  Plus, since I'm a fangirl of multiple series (and Taylor Swift), I think I might be able to relate...

10. Cool Beans by Erynn Mangum
Yay for Christian young adult fiction!  I'm a bit leery of Christian YA, just because, sometimes, it's only categorized as such because the characters are Christian, not because it teaches good faith lessons.  So we'll see with this book, but I think it'll be a good read anyways.

Okay, phew I compiled a list of ten books.  It took me about 40 minutes, but I did it!

  2. Time Between Us popping up on a bunch of lists. I was just looking at it last night and trying to figure out when I would get to it. As far as Divergent, just pick it up and read the first couple of chapters. That should hook you.

  5. Am I allowed to do this Top Ten, or do you have to be invited/part of some group to do it? Haha, my to-be-read list is so long...but there are definitely some that are higher priority on my list!

    Some people have mentioned this too, but you really should read Divergent! Though I'm not sure if you want to read it first, because the third book in the trilogy hasn't come out yet, and I'm dying to know what happens. If you read it later, you won't have to wait as long...:P

    Have you read or heard of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare? SUCH a good book series! I love it, and the first book (City of Bones) is becoming a movie that comes out this summer, August 21! :)

    And I am a huge fangirl of Taylor Swift too! High five. :)

    1. You just need to post the meme I posted, link back to The Broke and the Bookish, and add your post to the link on their Top Ten Tuesday post. Anyone is allowed to do Top Ten, and you don't have to do it every week, if you can't/don't want to. ;)

      I've looked into The Mortal Instruments, and I don't think it's my type of thing. ;)

  6. I need to read Divergent too, but I've descided to wait until the third book comes out so that I can read them all at once. Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
