My TBR list || BLOGVEMBER DAY 10


Hello cutecumbers, and welcome to blogvember day 10!
As you may or may not know, I am a huge book worm. I like to hoard them, read them, feel them, smell them, I like to invest my time and myself in a story completely. It can sometimes get out of hand, to be honest... Anyways, as every book worm, I too have a huge to be read list! If this sparks up your interest, then just keep on reading:


                        


  • Hold me closer, Necromancer- L.McBride
    The title is what pulled me in, the synopsis is what made me want to read the full book :)
    "Sam leads a pretty normal life. He may not have the most exciting job in the world, but he’s doing all right—until a fast food prank brings him to the attention of Douglas, a creepy guy with an intense violent streak.
    Turns out Douglas is a necromancer who raises the dead for cash and sees potential in Sam. Then Sam discovers he’s a necromancer too, but with strangely latent powers. And his worst nightmare wants to join forces . . . or else.
    With only a week to figure things out, Sam needs all the help he can get. Luckily he lives in Seattle, which has nearly as many paranormal types as it does coffee places. But even with newfound friends, will Sam be able to save his skin?
     " (from Goodreads)
  • The Realm of Possibility- D. Levithan
    I always wanted to read something from Levithan, but sadly never got my hands on any of his books. But this synopsis made it look so interesting that I just had to pen down the title in my list :)
    One school. Twenty voices.
    Endless possibilities.
    There's the girl who is in love with Holden Caulfield. The boy who wants to be strong who falls for the girl who's convinced she needs to be weak. The girl who writes love songs for a girl she can't have. The two boys teetering on the brink of their first anniversary. And everyone in between.
    As he did in the highly acclaimed Boy Meets Boy, David Levithan gives us a world of unforgettable voices that readers will want to visit again and again. It's the realm of possibility open to us all - where love, joy, and the stories we tell will linger (Goodreads)
  • The Boyfriend List- E. Lockhart
    As a list-maker myself, I liked the idea of the book. Plus, I heard all the best about Lockhart, so I have to check this book out :)
    Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it’s unusual, but give her a break—she’s had a rough 10 days. In the past 10 days she:
    lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list),
    lost her best friend (Kim),
    lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket),
    did something suspicious with a boy (#10),
    did something advanced with a boy (#15),
    had an argument with a boy (#14),
    drank her first beer (someone handed it to her),
    got caught by her mom (ag!),
    had a panic attack (scary),
    lost a lacrosse game (she’s the goalie),
    failed a math test (she’ll make it up),
    hurt Meghan’s feelings (even though they aren’t really friends),
    became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch)
    and had graffiti written about her in the girls’ bathroom (who knows what was in the boys’!?!). 

    But don’t worry—Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists. (Goodreads)
  • Amy & Roger's Epic Detour- M.Matson
    This sounds like a cute love story, with something dark in the background- my favorite kind of reads :D
    Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it's Amy's responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn't ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip - and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar - especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory - but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way. (Goodreads)
  • The Knife of Never Letting Go- P. Ness
    This. Book. Sounds so good. I heard people talk about it for ages, before deciding to put it on my list. But when I saw the synopsis, I knew this will be not only on my list but devoured quickly as well!
    Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.
    But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?
  • Six of Crows- L.Bardugo
    Okay, I had started this book, but at the time I just couldn't make myself read it. So, it's now again on my TBR list, and I am determined to finish it!
    Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he'll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:
    Break into the notorious Ice Court
    (a military stronghold that has never been breached)
    Retrieve a hostage
    (who could unleash magical havoc on the world)
    Survive long enough to collect his reward
    (and spend it)
    Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done - and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable - if they don't kill each other first (Goodreads)
  • Hush, Hush- B.Fitzpatrick
    Although it reminds me a bit of the Daughter of Smoke and Bones trilogy (which I hated) somehow, Hush Hush sounds a bit... better? I don't know what it is, but I do want to get my fingers on this babe :)
    Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
    But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
    For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life. (Goodreads)
  • Speak- L.H.Anderson
    If I am not mistaken, there is a movie based on this book (K. Stewart acts in it) and I loved the movie. Naturally, I want to read the book so that I can compare them and see how it is :)
    "Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself.
  • My Heart and Other Black holes- J.Warga
    Okay, the title is what pulled me here. It hits right in my little emo heart. But also, the story sounds very interesting as well
    Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.
    There’s only one problem: she’s not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel’s convinced she’s found her solution: a teen boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman) who’s haunted by a family tragedy is looking for a partner. 
    Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other’s broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together. Except that Roman may not be so easy to convince.(Goodreads)
  • Eleanor & Park- R.Rowel
    To be honest, this book reminds me of my boyfie and me, and thus I want to read it badly. But in all seriousness, I love Rowel's work, and this is the only book of hers which I haven't read yet!
    Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.
    Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.
    Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. (goodreads)
  • Burn for Burn- J.Han
    Jenny Han has some lovely books, and her portrait of family is what I probably enjoy the most. In this book, that element is present as well!
    Postcard-perfect Jar Island is home to charming tourist shops, pristine beaches, amazing oceanfront homes—and three girls secretly plotting revenge.
    KAT is sick and tired of being bullied by her former best friend.
    LILLIA has always looked out for her little sister, so when she discovers that one of her guy friends has been secretly hooking up with her, she’s going to put a stop to it.
    MARY is perpetually haunted by a traumatic event from years past, and the boy who’s responsible has yet to get what’s coming to him.
    None of the girls can act on their revenge fantasies alone without being suspected. But together…anything is possible.
    With an alliance in place, there will be no more “I wish I’d said…” or “If I could go back and do things differently...” These girls will show Jar Island that revenge is a dish best enjoyed together (goodreads)
  • Tales of the Madman Underground- J. Barnes
    I liked the description of the main protagonist, thus I added this to the list. Has anyone read it, is it good?
    Wednesday, September 5, 1973: The first day of Karl Shoemaker's senior year in stifling Lightsburg, Ohio. For years, Karl's been part of what he calls "the Madman Underground" - a group of kids forced (for no apparent reason) to attend group therapy during school hours. Karl has decided that senior year is going to be different. He is going to get out of the Madman Underground for good. He is going to act - and be - Normal. But Normal, of course, is relative. Karl has five after-school jobs, one dead father, one seriously unhinged drunk mother . . . and a huge attitude. Welcome to a gritty, uncensored rollercoaster ride, narrated by the singular Karl Shoemaker (goodreads)
  • Boy Meets Boy- D. Levithan
    This is a romantic, meaningful comedy about finding love, losing love and doing everything possible to get love back in this rollercoaster world!
    This is the story of Paul, a sophomore at a high school like no other: The cheerleaders ride Harleys, the homecoming queen used to be a guy named Daryl (she now prefers Infinite Darlene and is also the star quarterback), and the gay-straight alliance was formed to help the straight kids learn how to dance.
    When Paul meets Noah, he thinks he’s found the one his heart is made for. Until he blows it. The school bookie says the odds are 12-to-1 against him getting Noah back, but Paul’s not giving up without playing his love really loud. His best friend Joni might be drifting away, his other best friend Tony might be dealing with ultra-religious parents, and his ex-boyfriend Kyle might not be going away anytime soon, but sometimes everything needs to fall apart before it can really fit together right. (goodreads)
  • I'll Give You the Sun- J.Nelson
    Okay, the review promises to make me laugh and cry at all times, and I love books which make me feel everything!
    At first, Jude and her twin brother Noah, are inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them. 
    Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor. 
    The early years are Noah’s to tell; the later years are Jude’s. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they’ll have a chance to remake their world.
  • Turtles All the Way Down- J. Green
    I read every book by John Green, and when I found out he wrote another one I knew I had to read it as well!
    Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.
    Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
  • The Inexplicable Logic of my Life- B.A. Saenz
    Ever since I read Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe, I fell in love with how Saenz portrays love, friendship and looking for yourself. Inexplicable Logic is very much similar in that way to Aristotle and Dante!
    Everything is about to change. Until this moment, Sal has always been certain of his place with his adoptive gay father and their loving Mexican-American family. But now his own history unexpectedly haunts him, and life-altering events force him and his best friend, Samantha, to confront issues of faith, loss, and grief.
    Suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and discovering that he no longer knows who he really is—but if Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he?
  • Last Night I Sang to the Monster- B.A.Saenz
    Another book from Saenz, but I have to read everything he wrote, just to get more of that style of narration!
    Zach is eighteen. He is bright and articulate. He's also an alcoholic and in rehab instead of high school, but he doesn't remember how he got there. He's not sure he wants to remember. Something bad must have happened. Something really, really bad. Remembering sucks and being alive - well, what's up with that? 
That's it cutecumbers, the post for day 10! I decided not to fill the post up with pictures, this is just a simple list post. If you have a similar TBR list, or you think I should add more books on my list, hit me up in the comments! Lets be friends!
Lots of love
Omega
