I saw this post idea at Reading to Know. Click HERE for her post. I just love these kinds of posts. If you do it, please come back and share your link, so we can all see your books, too. :)
These are in no particular order and they are only the tip of the iceberg. This would be one long post if I put them all on here.
Alice I Have Been: A Novel [DECKLE EDGE] (Hardcover)
by Melanie Benjamin
-This one not only has a beautiful cover, but it seemed really interesting. Imagine my excitement when I got to trade for it...yet it's still waiting to be read on my bookshelf! I just love the look of it so much, that it will probably remain on my bookshelf whether I love it or hate it when I finally read it. I don't think I currently have any books like that, so this will be a first.
by J.R. Miller
-This is the cover and title that I have, but it's much easier to find if you look up the title The Family instead. From my understanding, The Family is the new title. (???)
by Kristen Cashore
A Great and Terrible Beauty (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy)
by Libba Bray
-I've heard this series is amazing, but I've yet to find out for myself. I also have the next two waiting, Rebel Angels (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy Book #2)
and The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle, Book 3)
The Inn at Angel Island (An Angel Island Novel) by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer
I was really excited when this new series began, and even more excited when I won it, but I haven't even opened it up yet!
In the Company of Others: A Father Tim Novel by Jan Karon
-I waited almost 3 years for the next installment of this series, and I finally got the opportunity to trade for it. I absolutely can't believe it's still sitting here unread!!
Cybele's Secret by Juliet Marillier
-I think most of you know from reading my blog that Wildwood Dancing
is one of my absolute favorite books of all time! I can't believe I've made the second one wait so long to be read.
The Host: A Novel by Stephanie Meyer
Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
-I very much want to read this one, but I think I fear it may be a tough read. I like MOST of my books light and fluffy. :)
