Today I’m linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for their meme, Top Ten Tuesday.
1) A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd: This seemed like such a fun and whimsical MG book, but I never actually got around to reading it. I am reading it now as I schedule this post, though, and I can say that it is very fun and whimsical.
2) Five Glass Slippers by Elisabeth Brown, Emma Clifton, Rachel Heffington, Stephanie Ricker and Clara Diane Thompson: If you give me a fairytale retelling book, the probability that I will read it is 100%. If you give me five fairytale retellings in one book, the probability that I will read it is 500%. ‘Nuff said.
3) Lizzy and Jane by Katharine Reay: I loved reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and Lizzy and Jane is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I don’t think I’ve ever read a retelling of a classic, but this one seems amazing.
4) Orphan’s Song by Gillian Bronte Adams: Gillian Bronte Adams is a new author, and I was actually following her blog before she got published, so I was really excited when she announced that she had signed a contract for her book. Orphan’s Song is a Christian fantasy book and I’ve read many positive reviews of it.
5) Plenilune by Jennifer Freitag: It’s not often that I see a book that is planetary fantasy. I love sci-fi ish books, but I haven’t read enough of them, so I guess I should start with Plenilune.
6) All Four Stars by Tara Dairman: This seems like a really fun MG book. Plus it’s about food!
7) Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch: Samantha @ Bookish Serendipity recommended this book to me a while back and her review was very positive. It seems like a great book, and the covers is simply stunning. Also, the author started writing it when she was 12 but didn’t publish it until now. How cool is that?
8) Searching for Sky by Jillian Cantor: This is a book about survival on an island and what it’s like for someone who has never really interacted with civilization to finally experience civilization. I think that it will be really interesting reading from the perspective of someone who has been living on an island for her whole life.
9) Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld: This book is about a teen author and I’ve heard that it has a lot to do with the writing and publishing life. I absolutely love books about writing and authors, so this sounds like just the book for me.
10) Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley: This is a historical fiction book even though it takes place in a historical time that wasn’t that long ago. Historical fiction is my favorite genre, so I’m excited to read this book.
