Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for this fantastic meme!
First ... here's a list of what I currently have on hold at the library:
1. Destined - P.C. Cast
Currently "in transit" to my local library, this is the next installment in the House of Night series. I'm *almost* ready to give up on this series, so if this book doesn't WOW me...
2. Habibi - Craig Thompson
I'm fifth in line for 3 copies at the library, so I shouldn't have much longer to wait on this book. I love, love, loved Blankets by Thompson, so I'm hoping that this one is good as well.
3. Bumped - Megan McCafferty
I've had this one on hold forever, but I'm up to 14th spot in line for 6 copies, so it should be soon! I've only read the first book in her other series (another one for my TBR challenge), but it was really well-written.
4. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs
The hold line-up is moving quickly on this one, which I've wanted to read ever since I read about it on Cuppa Lit's blog.
5. Twisted - Sara Shepard
Another series that I'm *almost* ready to give up on, but I will give it one more book.
6. Divergent - Veronica Roth
I just put this on hold at the library, after reading so many rave reviews online, so I'm hoping that it'll arrive at the library before the end of the winter season. *fingers crossed*
Second, here are the first few books that I will read for my TBR challenge:
7. The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern
One of the books in my recent Chapters order; the storyline reminded me a little of Water for Elephants, plus the cover is GORGEOUS.
8. The Angel's Game - Carlos Ruiz Zafon
I read The Shadow of the Wind on my honeymoon last summer, and I LOVED Zafon's writing. I saw one of my best friends reading this book, and just had to add it to my TBR list.
9. I Am the Messenger - Markus Zusak
I bought this book a couple of Chapters' orders ago, but still haven't read it. I just hope that it's as good as The Book Thief was!
10. The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay - Michael Chabon
An upcoming book club selection, and another part of my recent Chapters order. This book has been on my TBR list for YEARS; it's about time to check it off!
