First and foremost, Gayle Forman came to my area on my birthday!! You'll have to check out my blog to see what happened in my awesome Gayle Forman-filled celebration but naturally I bought a copy of Just One Year which I LOVED. Seriously, I love Gayle Forman, my local indie and my book club friends for everything they did to make my birthday special!
The lovely Jen from Pop Goes The Reader gifted me with two books she loves and I'm SUPER excited to read them. If you don't know Jen, you should probably mosey on over to her blog because she is an awesome blogger who is among my favorites!
* The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion -- I've been curious about this one for a while and I remember Jen made me excited about it after she read it so I'm SO excited to read this soon!
* Vision in White by Nora Roberts -- super excited about this one as I've been getting more into the romance genre lately and the cover is stunning!
My lovely friend Mitali sent me these for my birthday and I'm SO excited. Firstly, MUG CAKES. YOU CAN MAKE AMAZING DESSERTS IN YOUR MICROWAVE. You need this book. I want to make 99% of these!! And secondly, I've always wanted to read Janet Evanovich so I'm excited to check this one out! Have any of you guys read her books??
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart: EEEE!!! BEYOND EXCITED. Seriously. I loved Frankie Landau Banks and have the Ruby Oliver series on my shelves but this book seems completely different from what she typically writes and I'm excited because I LOVE psychological thrillers. Make sure this is on your TBR for 2014!!
Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill: This one sounds really cute and I love when I read a summary that features an MCs I've never seen anywhere -- a hockey player and a figure skater! So looking forward to this!
Premidiated by Josin L. McQuein: I've been wanting to read this one so I was very happy when it showed up here! It's gotten good reviews by some reviewers I trust!
Red by Allison Cherry: The premise seems a little weird but I'm intrigued based on chatter about this one! Let me know if you've read this one!
Indigo by Gina Linko: I've never heard of this one but it seems to be paranormal and possibly a standalone? Anyone heard of this one? It is set in New Orleans which is a city I've been wanting more books to be set in!
Splendor by Elana K. Arnold: This is the sequel to Sacred which I have on my shelf but haven't yet read! I'm really interested in it though!
Loud Awake and Lost by Adele Griffin: I've been intrigued by this one for a while and I love a good mystery so I'm hoping this will be good!! I have another one of her books, Tighter, on my shelf..has anyone read that one?
The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson: One of my fave authors and I am SOOOO looking forward to this one! LHA has done so much for the YA scene and she writes some of the best books out there!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: This was a reread for me for book club. Was very excited for this opportunity to share this book with the rest of the book club ladies as it is a favorite. PLUS, if you checked out my "In Memory of Lost Books" post, you'll know why I'm super excited.
Have you guys read any of these?? Let me know what you thought so I can prioritize! Or let me know which ones you are planning to read/also own!
