|A feature of the Broke and the Bookish|
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
No surprise here, since this is the 3rd week in a row I'm mentioning it! (Not-so)Patiently waiting for the library to tell me it's my turn.
Scarlett Doesn't Live Here Anymore by Laura F Edwards
I know I may be in the minority in my love of Civil War history and culture, but I can't wait to dive into this exploration of the lives of women of varying races and incomes pre-, during, and post- War.
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Loved Anna and the French Kiss so much more than I ever thought I could. Was completely let down by Lola and the Boy Next Door. I need Isla as the tie-breaker to decide if I like Perkins or not.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I can't see the movie until I've read the book!
Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis and Booke Allen
My library doesn't have this series, and I don't like to buy graphic novels, but I definitely want to lose myself for an hour or two in the all-female cast of characters and their adventures at summer camp. I'm waiting for my library to take up my suggestion and purchase a few copies.
Time Traveller's Guide to Elizabethan England by Ian Mortimer
Little known fact: I went through a big phase where I couldn't read enough about Queen Elizabeth and her parents. This sounds like a fun read to help better understand that world.
An American Heir by Chrissy Breen Keffer
Another book my library lacks (and it's a pretty extensive network!). This is a modern retelling of Jane Eyre, which can only be fantastic, right? Right...?
Through to You by Emily Hainsworth
Ghost-like beings? Yes! Perfect for the impending autumn! And the cover is so, so pretty!
Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier
A very highly rated Beauty and the Beast retelling. I am determined to read every B&B retelling I can find...
The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
HAVEN'T I WAITED LONG ENOUGH? This was supposed to be in my hands October 2013 and has been postponed TWICE.
