TTT

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic:  Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2013

There were soooo many good books I read this year — some debut authors, some around for a while so this week we’re celebrating those authors who had books published prior to 2013 but this year was the first that I picked up their books. Super excited for this topic!

Top Ten Tuesday – December 10, 2013: Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR

TTT

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic:  Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR

ISB

Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky #3) – Veronica Rossi
I actually just started reading the final book in this exciting trilogy — which I think has only gotten better over time! I’m already in love with Veronica Rossi’s writing all over again and I’m so excited to read this book and… you know, actually finish a series as sad as I will be to see it “go”!

HDC

Her Dark Curiosity (The Madman’s Daughter #2) – Megan Shepherd
I enjoyed book one even though I didn’t know much about the original inspiration, The Island of Dr. Moreau. Jekyll & Hyde being the inspiration for this one? Sign me up!

CB

Cruel Beauty – Rosamund Hodge
Graceling meets Beauty and the Beast. HOW CAN I NOT? Actually, why haven’t I even started this…?

RR

Red Rising (Red Rising Trilogy #1) – Pierce Brown
I actually picked this one up as a suggestion from Netgalley and it sounds super exciting! It’s a new dystopian involving a color-caste society and it sounds super interesting and really exciting!

avalon

Avalon (Avalon #1) – Mindee Arnett
I’ve actually been getting into a bit of sci-fi lately and this sounds like a really thrilling and fascinating adventure! Part science-fiction, part dystopian, it sounds like it’s right up my alley!

GR

Going Rogue (Also Known As #2) – Robin Benway
I absolutely adored Also Known As and I’m so excited to read a sequel! And I’m glad that Robin Benway decided to write a sequel haha!

bsj

Being Sloane Jacobs – Lauren Morrill
Meant to Be was one of my favorite reads of 2012 — or really, just one of my favorite reads — so I am so excited to read Lauren Morrill’s second book!

bof

Better Off Friends – Elizabeth Eulberg
I read my first Elizabeth Eulberg book just a few months ago and I adored it! I’m so excited to read a new book from her coming out in February!

ss

Split Second (Pivot Point #2) – Kasie West
STILL excited to read this one. Highly anticipating its release!

whitespace

White Space (Dark Passages #1) – Ilsa J. Bick
Okay, this is another one that I don’t know how I haven’t read it yet because just READ THIS DESCRIPTION: “Ilsa Bick’s WHITE SPACE, pitched as The Matrix meets Inkheart, about a seventeen-year-old girl who jumps between the lines of books and into the white space where realities are created and destroyed – but who may herself be nothing more than a character written into being from an alternative universe.” UM YEAH. So excited! (Synopsis captured from Goodreads)

Those are the books I’m looking forward to this winter! Now, I know I say this every season but I’m really going to try to stay on top of new releases! Then I end up picking up whatever I want anyway, but still. So many exciting books!!!
