Top Ten Tuesday

Well, there is always a new must read book that people are raving about… it’s inevitable, there are just so many awesome books out there! I’ve tried to narrow it down because honestly, on a daily basis there are new must reads coming at all angles, but anyway… here are the ten that stick out most in my mind 😛

Throne of Glass  Daughter of Smoke & Bone  The Fault in Our Stars  Open Road Summer  Nantucket Blue
1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
*Well I do believe that I may well be the very last person who has read this yet! And I certainly do intend on it but now I’m just going to wait until Heir of Fire is out since I waited this long 😛
2. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
*It’s kind of the same thing with this one as Throne of Glass haha, I feel like I’m the last one to read it! Granted, I do have a good reason because I’ve only just become interested in fantasy but I will definitely be starting this series in the near future
3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
*This has been featured in too many of my TTT recently but EVERYONE says read this! Enough said. 
4. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
*Has anyone not liked this one? lol, I’ve seen so many amazing reviews and actually as of when I’m drafting this post (Sunday) I’m reading it… !!!
5. Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland
*This book has so many amazing things said about it as well so I’m hoping to get to it before the end of summer. Actually, it was between this one and Open Road Summer this past weekend about which one to pick up 😛

Second Chance Summer  Nowhere But Home  Obsidian  Alice in Zombieland  Something Like Normal
6. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
*I will definitely be reading this because EVERYONE loves it but I need to be in a special kind of place for a book like this 😛 Preferably home by myself so no one bears witness to the ugly cry!
7. Nowhere but Home by Liza Palmer
*Cass has outstanding things to say about this one so hopefully I will have a chance to get to it soon!!
8. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
*I hear this talked about the most of all her books and I honestly didn’t think I would try it but the first book was a freebie on Amazon recently so I might as well give it a shot. It’s just the sexy alien bit? I just can’t see it!
9. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
*So many amazing reviews about this and I just picked it up on Sunday 🙂
10. Something Like Normal by Trish Dollar
*Actually, her other book as well but I chose this one because it’s older. I need to read this… no excuse for it either because I own it :/

What are the most recommended books that you have? Have you read any of these ones? Link up!

    Throne of glass: great idea to wait, because you do want to binge-read them 😀 You might want to take a look at The assassin’s blade, because I would recommend reading that one first. It’s about her past, so you can read it separate from the series.
    Daughter of smoke and bone: I’m currently reading the sequel, so you are not alone in being late with this series.

    Basically all of the books on your list are on my TBR! I really must read Throne of Glass soon. It’s been all the rage since the Heir of Fire ARCs were released. TFiOS is amazing, even if it’s not your normal kind of book. I wasn’t planning to read it for the longest time but then my friend forced it on me and I couldn’t help but fall in love with it! 🙂

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone, TFIOS, and Obsidian are all great (but very different) reads. I’m fairly certain I gave all 3 five stars. Obsidian is a bit more of a “beach read” – but the subsequent books that follow it are a lot better 🙂

  4. Alma @ Journey Through Fiction

    I have so many of these on my own TBR list! I loved Obsidian, and I felt the same when I first heard aliens were involved, but it does work! Daughter of Smoke and Bone is on my own list this week, and I can’t wait to read Alice in Zombieland. I love retellings, and I’ve seen this one around for so long. I love the covers too 🙂 Great list!

    • Lauren

      Yes, I love the covers for the Alice books as well 🙂 🙂 I have heard SOOO much that aliens do work, so I really do need to give this one a shot … it just seems so weird about aliens lol. Thanks for stopping by Alma!!!

    Unfortunately I haven’t read Throne of Glass yet either, actually it’s on my TTT list too. Daughter of Smoke & Bone was really great, the third book was such an action packed read. I think TFiOS is overhyped but I still liked it a lot. Second Chance Summer is on my TBR list too, I can’t wait to read it. I’ve only read Obsidian from the Lux series but it was soo good, I’ve already have the other books and I can’t wait to start them as well. I liked Alice in Zombieland and I hope I’ll like the second book even more. I couldn’t find many Alice in Wonderland resemblances just yet but I hope this will change too.

      I’ve heard so many good Alice things, but I did hear that it’s not super related to Alice in wonderland 🙁 I’m glad to know that the third book of DoS&B is action packed, I love action reads 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

      HAHA I love this comment Kayla 🙂 This is exactly the type of exuberance I have when it comes to certain books!! I will be reading at least #1 to 3… I’m still iffy on TFIOS haha. I think I’m going to read Second Chance Summer maybe this weekend, I have the day to myself on Saturday with BF out of the house for the day so it’s the perfect opportunity for tons of tears 🙂

    • Lauren

      I have heard so many awesome things about Daughter of Smoke and Bone 🙂 I’m glad it’s all out now though so i can just binge read the series!!!

    I still haven’t read Throne of Glass so don’t feel like you are the last one. I started reading it and got about halfway through it once before I was too busy with school and put it down for any other things. I do want to get back into it. It wasn’t a bad book just one that I let slip through the cracks while I was trying to read it the first time.
    Eh I wouldn’t rant and rave about The Fault in Our Stars, it is a good book and it will make you cry but I’ve read fantastic cancer related books before so this one just didn’t hit me as hard as other books have such as A Time for Dancing.
    Also I wouldn’t run out for Obsidian. If you have read Twilight you have already read Obsidian as Armentrout just takes every vampire word and makes it into alien and every Edward into Daemon and every Bella into Katy. Honestly, there are parts of this book that you can just picture happening the way they happened in Twilight because they are literally cut and pasted from there into this book.
    Daughter of Smoke and Bone however is downright amazing! I loved that book because the writing style is unlike anything you have read in YA. Taylor goes above and beyond.

      Oh wow, that’s interesting about Obsidian! It’s nice to hear another perspective on it because everyone else just LOVESSSSSS it so much!!

      I need to pick up DoSaB so soon. My issue was that I started with the audiobook and I really, really disliked the narrator. I just couldn’t connect at all with the story and I can’t seem to ever want to get back to it! I definitely will now that the series is complete though 🙂
