Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Play Hooky With

This week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Spring Fever: Top Ten Books I'd Play Hooky With.  I've decided to interpret this as books I'd like to put my life on hold to read.  Here they are, ones I've been meaning to get to or dying to get to.


Partials by Dan Wells
This one I'm still waiting for from the library, but I've been aching to get my hands on it and start reading!


Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
For my Classic Double Challenge, I've actually been listening to the audio, but it turns out it's abridged and I'd really like to read the whole thing again.  Can't everything just be on hold for a while?


The Agency 3: The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee
I've got this one on my kindle, waiting so patiently for me to devour it.  I'm pretty sure I'll finally get to it this week!  I could use something a little different from my usual, like the previous Agency books have been.


Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Still waiting for this one from the library too!  I can't wait to see where Lena goes next.


Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos
This one has been so patient, since I checked it out weeks ago to see why it won the Newbery over my beloved Okay For Now.  It's still waiting...for me to have the time.


The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi
I got an ARC of this and I was so excited, since I loved Ship Breaker.  I can't believe I haven't just dropped everything and picked it up yet.


Seeds of Rebellion by Brandon Mull
Another library waiting.  I like this interesting new series by Mull and I want to see what happens next.  If only I had this one waiting in my reading pile already.


For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I'm pretty sure that when I finally get my hands on this, it will jump to the top of the TBR mountain.  Haven't I already expressed my desire to read it?  If you haven't found your desire, check out Angie's review and you will want it immediately.


Starters by Lissa Price
Another patiently waiting kindle book.  I just love the concept, so I'd really like to get started on it soon!


172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
This is another ARC waiting for me and I love the cover as well as the concept.  Seriously, I need more reading hours in the day. 

What books do you wish you could drop everything to read?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage

  1. I saw your comment on Rebecca. I think abridged books should be illegal! This has happened to me a few times and it really irks me.

    1. What makes me even angrier is that is the only version of the audio my library has for download. Urg!

  4. Lucky lucky lucky-you have Drowned Cities?!? The new Mary Quinn is waiting for me and I have been seeing Starters all over place. I've added it to my list. I am about to start listing to Okay for Now. I've heard great things! Great list

    1. I know! I'm so lucky and I haven't even started it :( Hopefully you love Okay for Now as much as I do!

  5. Yeah, pretty much every book on my TBR list would be on my top ten list had I done it today. If only we could freeze time and spend hours reading and then unfreeze it when we were ready to get back to life.

    1. I totally need to be able to freeze life and read. It would be so nice to pick up again after I finish the book and not have lost time :)

  6. Yep, loved Rebecca. I just love gothic tales in general now. Such a great genre! And now that I've read Pandemonium, I'm very eager for the next one, but it'll be a long wait since P. just came out!

    1. Oh the waiting for sequels! If I were more patient, I'd wait to read until they all come out. But I'm not :)

  7. I completely agree about Rebecca! It is such a fantastic book, I couldn't put it down!

    1. I am eager to read it completely again, especially since the abridged audio left out so much of the atmospheric stuff.

      Delete

Love it when you comment!
