Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new prompt is provided and book bloggers, like me, share their top ten lists. 

This week's prompt-
Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward to in 2015

1. Confess by Colleen Hoover-
          At this point I am going to read anything written by Colleen Hoover. Her books are amazing, always, and I read them in hours. I know this one will be the same. 

2. A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley
          This book seems like it will be a mystery will a lot of suspense. Can't wait to see if I'm right! 

3. The Last Queen of India by Michelle Moran
          As I'm sure you know by now, I can never resist a good nonfiction or historical fiction book, especially if it's about a time period I'm not familiar with. This book seems intriguing and fresh and will be one of the first I want to read next year. 

4. The Stranger by Harlan Coben
          Another good looking mystery, yet this time involving marriage. Will it be another Gone Girl type book? We will find out!

5. Girl Before a Mirror by Liza Palmer
          Gotta have some good chick-lit in there somewhere... 

6. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
          A girl obsessed with plotting her own death and committing suicide? Not exactly the brightest subject matter but definitely attention-grabbing. It will be interesting to see how this one pans out. 

7. The Distance Between Lost and Found by Kathryn Holmes
          Another interesting sounding YA with dark secrets and mysteries. 

8. Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
          Girls going missing? Mystery? Suspense? Add it to my list.

9. Never Never by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher
          Look at that cover. Read that description. Note my love for everything Colleen Hoover. You know why I'm excited for this one.

10. Before I Go by Colleen Oakley
          And of course I had to end my list with a super depressing sounding book about a woman who is dying of cancer and does things for her husband beforehand, similar to PS I Love You. While this will probably be a tough one, I'm also hoping it gives us some deeper thoughts and ideas. 

Are you excited for these, as well? Comment below and let me know what you think!

  1. The Distance Between Lost and Found just went on my TBR! I hadn't heard of that one before, but it sounds intriguing. I love anything with mysteries! I haven't read anything by Colleen Hoover, but have seen her on several lists, so may need to check her out. I'm so glad you stopped by the blog and that you have A Desperate Fortune on your list too!! This makes me happy!! -Katie

    1. You HAVE to read Colleen Hoover! I absolutely love everything I have read by her. Check my reviews of Slammed and Ugly Love for some ideas :)

  2. I've been meaning to read Lauren Oliver! I still have Panic on my Kindle from last summer...I never got to it, but will read it before this summer.

    1. I haven't read that one either but it's all over everyone's blogs so that's a sign that it must be a good read. Can't wait to see what we both think about it!

Book Review: Before We Were Yours

My Rating: 5
It has been about a month since I finished this book and it honestly took me that long to recover enough in order to write a review.
Before We Were Yours is one of the best books I have ever read, and if you know me at all, you would realize I don’t toss that statement around lightly. By saying that, however, in no way am I saying that this is a happy read, because it is also one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful books I have ever read in my life, as well.
Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals (although the main characters are fictional), the story is that of Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, who would kidnap poor children and then sell them to wealthy families all over the country from the 1920s through the 1950s.
Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four siblings are the victims of this type of crime, and half of the book is their journey and fight to get back home. The other half is that of present-day Avery, a prose…

Book Review: Pretty Girls

My Rating: 4
Have you ever read a book that was so dark and twisted that you literally felt like you lost a piece of your innocence after finishing it? Yeah, that’s what I felt as I was reading Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter.
Needless to say, this book threw me for quite the loop. I was expecting a story about missing girls (which I got), what I wasn’t expecting, however, was an extremely graphic tale of violence and gore full of shocking scenarios and senseless acts that would leave me slightly traumatized and lying awake at night thinking about (which is what I also got).
I’m not trying to be dramatic with this review, but honestly, this book will seriously mess you up. It is not at all for the faint of heart and it will exhaust you every time you finish a chapter. Still with me? Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
Pretty Girls was a crazy psychological thriller that continued to throw plot twists and mysteries at me until I didn’t think I could handle it anymore, then it took a sharp left…

Book Review: The Good Widow

My Rating: 4
I finished this book in under two days. TWO DAYS. Given the fact that I have a toddler now, that's saying something.

The Good Widow is about Jacks, a woman who finds out that her husband has died in a tragic car accident when on his business trip to Kansas. Or so she thought. Turns out he died in Hawaii… with another woman.

Now Jacks is left with not only the devastating blow that her husband was lying to her about his whereabouts, but also the fact that he was having an affair, as well. She is trying to pick up the pieces of her life when the other woman’s fiancé arrives at her door, left with the same questions Jacks has about the mystery surrounding their deaths. Together, they will try to find out the truth about who their significant others really were.

The book had a lot of twists and turns I never saw coming. I liked how it switched perspectives and timelines of before/after the accident, as I felt this made the pace go a lot faster. The feelings the characters had…
