Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I am going to attempt not to be overly repetitive here.  Which is difficult because I still REALLY want to read the books from my Top Ten Books I'm For Sure Going to Read in The First Half Of 2017 list, my Top Ten 2017 Debuts I'm Excited For list, and my Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get To list.  Well, I have gotten to some of the books of course but as usual the world spins and I add more books to my TBR pile.  It is the way of things. There is always another book coming...

How It Feels to Fly by Kathryn Holmes cover

How It Feels to Fly
by Kathryn Holmes 

Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: June 14th 2016

"If the past few months have taught me anything, it’s how to ignore the eyes. How to pretend they don’t hurt."

There are balloons on the cover and it has to do with ballet.  Sold.  Because I am just that easy.

Tumbling by Caela Carter cover

by Caela Carter


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: June 7th 2016

“The blood pumping through her veins when she landed a vault like that one always felt like exclamation points.” 

After Lessons in Falling by Diana Gallagher I am on the search for a satisfying gymnastics book. And the cover is beautiful.


Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson cover

by Tiffany D. Jackson 


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: January 24th 2017

“Well, people tend not to think clearly when a black girl is suspected of killing a little white girl,”

Omg, this premise.  The main character is babysitting when a baby dies and ends up in jail for kids for six years.  But what really happened.  I am disturbed and creeped out already.  Also, I love the cover.  


Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum cover

Tell Me Three Things
by Julie Buxbaum


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: April 5th 2016

“Just because you're strong doesn't mean you shouldn't ask for help sometimes. Remember that.”

There are waffles on the cover and I am hungry now and gimmee. However, I have a suspicion about who the secret love interest is from reading the blurb and I had better not be right. 

Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith cover

by Jennifer E. Smith


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: May 2nd 2017

“We have all sorts of words that could describe us. But we get to choose which ones are most important.”

I have liked Jennifer E. Smiths other books and that was enough for me to add this to the this even without the beautiful cover. Something, something, romance, lottery tickets, luck. 

The Blazing Star by Imani Josey cover

The Blazing Star
by Imani Josey 


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: I want it to be. Does that count?
Published: December 6th 2016

"Look!" he said. "I have cured her sour disposition. My debt is almost repaid.” 

*gasp THIS COVER. THIS COVER. THIS COVER. I am looking forward to the actual story but THE COVER has blinded me to everything else.  But also, see above: sass. I am here for it.

Maybe in Paris by Rebecca Christiansen cover

Maybe in Paris
by Rebecca Christiansen 


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: June 20th 2017

Paris, travel, Scotland, ASD. Pretty much any of these things would have gotten me hooked.  Overkill?  No, I just need it now.  Sadly, not out until June. Much sadness.

Wait for Me by Caroline Leech cover

Wait for Me
by Caroline Leech


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published:  January 31st 2017

"Set in 1945 Scotland ..." done.  I have been convinced.  I will be reading this.

I am a fan of these kinds of covers

Girl Against the Universe
by Paula Stokes 


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: May 17th 2016

“How can something feel so crucial in the moment and then seem completely trivial after the fact?”

A book about PTSD recovery.  I don't think that I have read any of this author's books but I am definitly looking forward to this one.

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli cover

The Upside of Unrequited
by Becky Albertalli


Goodreads | Amazon
Series: no
Published: April 11th 2017

I have immense love for Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda so I am breathlessly awaiting this one.  April is much too far away.  




Have you read any of these books?  Have reccomendations? I always need book enabling.
