Keeping up with The Broke and Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesdays.
1. Royal Wedding – Meg Cabot
I grew up with Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo. I’ve read and re-read the series so many times that I have lost count. So you can imagine my excitement when I heard about the return of my childhood.
2. Veronica Mars : Mr Kiss and Tell – Rob Thomas
Pre-teen me watched the Veronica Mars TV series religiously. How can one not love Veronica with all her sass, quick wit and no-nonsense attitude? ( If you have a problem with Veronica, leave)
So reasons why I’m excited about the return of Veronica Mars are pretty obvious :
More LoVe ( I shipped LoVe with every fibre of my being)
Return of the best fictional parent,ever – Keith Mars!
3. Uprooted – Naomi Novik
Gabby’s review. ‘Nuff said
4. Practical Magic – Alice Hoffman
I admit, this book made it onto my list because I’d seen and adored the movie adaptation starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman as the Owen sisters.
5. Sharp Objects – Gillian Flynn
Gillian Flynn is a fantastic, thought-provoking writer. I’m in awe of her knack for using words to traumatize me to my core.
Gone Girl blew my mind,and Dark Places gave me a serious case of the creepies, so it’s only fair that I give Sharp Objects a chance.
6. Me, Earl and The Dying Girl – Jesse Andrews
Another book that weaseled its way into my list, just because I’d watched the movie earlier and I liked the uncommon charm of the story line and it’s connection to the audience.
7. The Girl On The Train – Paula Hawkins
Practically everyone in the entire universe is hooked on this thriller, and it’s often referred to as the next Gone Girl. So it’s about time I join the bandwagon.
8. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – Mindy Kaling.
I’m not much of a celebrity memoir kind of girl. But, I love The Mindy Project, and I adore the comedic genius that is Mindy Kaling. This book should be a riot.
9. Shadow and Bone ( The Grisha ) – Leigh Bardugo
1/2 a cup of magical powers
A pinch of darkness
2 cups of flesh eating monsters
Makes one promising YA fantasy novel.
10. Half Bad – Sally Green
One does not simply refuse to devour a grim and thrilling fantasy novel about Warlocks at war, that is often being compared to The Hunger Games, and has shattered two Guinness World Records. No,sir.
