AaaaaAAAAaaaahhh, another two days before my break is officially over. I know I got to start packing but
naaaaah....why do it now if you can do it later!
To be honest, somehow I didn't find enough favourites from last year reads, so this year I know I need to prioritize to avoid the same heartache.
If I Stay (If I Stay #1) by Gayle Forman
A teary read, you say? With only 201 pages??? Impossibru!!!
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn (Eon #1) by Alison Goodman
I heard the book revolves around
an Asian princess a female warrior? (Thanks Axie for correcting me!) After a disappointment over Graceling and feeling no longer interested in Prophecy by Ellen Oh due to the mixed reviews, Eon is my only hope for now.
Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles #1) by Melina Marchetta
Before you started to throw heavy vehicles on me, know this, I HAVE THIS BOOK ON MY SHELF but I'm currently back in Malaysia for holiday. Once I'm back in Aus, I swear I'm going to read it. Just pray I do have time to read it since my summer research will be back in full swing soon.
Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
I NEED TO RE-READ THIS. Somehow I saw so many negative to mixed reviews for it last year and they left me so confused because I remember liking Shiver but I can't remember why apart's from Stiefvater's level 9000 writing.
I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent #1) by Barry Lyga
Serial killers always intrigued me and while I'm not in any way idolize them, I always wonder how their minds actually work. Heh. No Dexter for me. That TV series could mess with my head if I let it on so this one book should be okay, I guess?
Immortal Beloved (Immortal Beloved #1) by Cate Tiernan
God, I know I'm such a loser because I actually have this on my shelf! And still have yet to read it. T_T
Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly #1) by Susan Dennard
Not sure why I want to read this book so bad but I really do. Probably because of the abundance of 4-5-star reviews? Probably because of the parasol?
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
Another book sitting on my shelf...I should be banned from buying more books, right? It's like keeping a neglected pet. I'm full of shame. :((
Poison Study (Study #1) by Maria V. Snyder
Another book about female assassin, Grave Mercy didn't work for me. AT ALL. So I really hope this one would rise to the occasion. I somewhat worried too since I don't get along well with Historical Fiction books.
The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
Very, very disappointed with What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang so when there were a handful of reviewers comparing that book with The Lost Girl and some even liked The Lost Girl better, I know I have to get my hands on it soon. Plus, the protag is an Indian girl? That's new! :)
Fifty Shames of Earl Grey (Fifty Shames #1) by Fanny Merkin
I haven't actually read Fifty Shades of Grey (not planning to anyway!) but I roughly know the storyline. Moreover, I haven't read any parodies before so probably this is a good start. Can't read any parodies on The Hunger Games because this book is sacred for me!
Ultraviolet (Ultraviolet #1) by R.J. Anderson
I haven't seen a single negative review from my circle of trusted reviewers so that's something. I don't understand too if it's so critically acclaimed then why it isn't that popular? Hmm..
