Note: my apologies for the awful formatting ... I'm still trying to get a handle on my new layout and fonts and I can't quite figure out why the font changed halfway through. If anyone knows stuff about HTML, help a girl out?
10. Books Already Released on Your Wishlist
Pure trilogy by Julianna Baggott and Everneath Trilogy by Brodi Ashton
I haven't finished either of these series yet, but I've loved the books that I've read so far, plus the covers are gorgeous and belong on my shelves.
Both of these books come highly recommended by readers that I trust, so I know I'll love them!
I read, and loved, both of these books, but borrowed them from the library, so I don't own a copy.
9. Favourite Covers
I'll let the covers speak for themselves... the funniest part is that I haven't even read all of these, some of these beautiful books are sitting on my shelves, waiting to be read!
I haven't even read the last three on the list, but I absolutely adore these covers!
8. Not Yet Released Books You Can't Wait For
Marissa Meyer's Winter, Lauren Oliver's Rooms, and Stephanie Perkins' Isla and the Happily Ever After are the only three that I can think of off the top of my head. There are more books yet to be released in some series that I haven't started yet (like Throne of Glass or His Fair Assassin above), which may be highly anticipated releases once I get my butt in gear and start reading these series!
7. Autobuy Authors
Lauren Oliver, Sarah Dessen, Morgan Matson, John Green, Janet Fitch, Andrew Davidson and Ann-Marie MacDonald.
6. Book Boyfriends
I'm not really a book boyfriend kind of person...
5. Books You Recommend the Most
Andrew Davidson's The Gargoyle, R.J. Palacio's Wonder, the Harry Potter series, and anything by Sarah Dessen or Morgan Matson.
Amanda Maciel's Tease, Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love, Megan McCafferty's Bumped and Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones.
4. Books You Thought You'd Like But Didn't
3. Books That Make You Cry
I have 52 tear-inducing reads on my Goodreads shelf. But the top three of all time? Morgan Matson's Second Chance Summer, John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things.
2. Books You Never Plan on Reading
Anything by Cormac McCarthy or William Faulkner -- blech. Had enough of these two in an American lit class when I couldn't even bring myself to finish reading the assigned novels -- even though it meant being unprepared for the final exam.
1. Favourite Genre At the Moment
This summer has been all about contemporary standalones, but I've also been getting into fantasy again.
