Top Ten Tuesday | Anticipatory #BookLove


Top Ten Tuesday

As I’m sitting here writing, I’m in a state of surprise to be participating in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday meme. Why, you ask? Well, this week’s topic just didn’t scream my bookish name. Oh, it’s a great topic, but I’m not much of a re-reader. Not that I don’t want to, it’s just I keep quite busy with new novels, and it's fabulous fun to discover new worlds upon new worlds. But then, as I’m whimsically prone to do, I got to thinking, and decided skipping wasn't an option (this week). Living by Lady Grantham’s famous words (“I’m a woman… I can be as contrary as I want.”), coupled with the fact that this weekly blogging opportunity is among my most favorite, it seemed an ideal situation. 

MOVIE NEWS | Disney's Beauty and the Beast

So, here we are. We’ve arrived at today’s Top Ten Tuesday post epicness. Because BOOKS.
 
Broke and Bookish May 24th Topic

Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed (less love, more love, complicated feelings, indifference, thought it was great in a genre until you became more well read in that genre etc.)

Instead of going the traditional route (since I don’t reread as I already explained), I chose to feature books that are poised to be my favorite kind of reads. Or in other words, below are ten reads I’m 99.9% sure I’ll adore. Apologies in advace if everything here and on out is scattered. This will, again, be a rush job. Let’s get started on the bookish fun.
 

1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard | This one looks fierce. 'Nuff said. Amazon | Goodreads
 
2. The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof | Cannot wait to read the lovely Joanne Bischof's next release. It looks beautiful, sounds amazing, and I'm excited. (*hint*) Watch for a giveaway closer to its release! #IndieBooksBeSeen Amazon | Goodreads
 
3. The Ringmaster's Wife by Kristy Cambron | A novel set in the circus scene? Yes, please! Amazon | Goodreads
 
4. The One by Kiera Cass | I've read books one and two in this 'Selection' series, and have as yet to read this third and final (of the original series) book. I'm excited to finally read it (because I heart The Selection and The Elite) as well as they  two "spin-off" novels. Amazon | Goodreads
 
 
5. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | I've eyed this one for a long time now, and still, I've not read it. The fact that it's a Beauty and the Beast inspired re-telling leaves me excited (plus that new trailer for the live-action adaptation), so someday, perhaps I'll read it. Now's your chance to hype this one if you were a fan. Amazon | Goodreads
 
6. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson | Loved 'Amy and Roger.' Looking forward to another unexpected bit of bliss from this contemporary author. Amazon | Goodreads
 
7. Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry | I've never read one of Katie's novels, but see them on Booktube all the time. Add in the fact that I'm a contemporary reader through and through, and I've got to wonder: why haven't I? Amazon | Goodreads
 
8. Of Dubious and Questionable Memory by Rachel McMillan | Love Rachel's easy-going style and "cozy mystery" feeling. This June 2016 novella promises to be amazing. Amazon | Goodreads
 

 
9. Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin | This one is next on my TBR. It has that 40s style done to perfection, plus its hero isn't bad to gaze at either. Not to mention the fact that I already know the story inside will be lovely. Amazon | Goodreads
 
10. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West | How cute does this one look?! (In stores July 2016.) Amazon | Goodreads
 

Tell me, which of these have you read, loved, hated or felt differently with time? What are some of the books your feelings have changed for? Whether good, bad or ugly, I’d love to know. Comment down below with all of your bookish thoughts. Plus, feel free to leave your Top Ten Tuesday links, I love meeting new bloggers, and would be glad to visit. 

As always, thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  5. I just reviewed Anchor in the Storm yesterday --I'm pretty sure you'll love it, Rissi. ;-) I found it to have very unique characters and about a not-as-well-known aspect of WWII.

    My copy of The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder just came in the mail this week! Looking forward to reading. =)

    I really wanted to join in on TTT today (it's been so long!) but I'm still catching up with review obligations from the semester ... hopefully I can join in next week!

    1. AWESOME! Now I'm all the more excited about it. Sarah always writes a lovely novel.

      Three cheers for Rachel's Bachelor Girls. Hope you enjoy.

      I know that "must catch up" mentality all too well. I think it's my new best friend. ;) Hope you can join in this (always fun) Top Ten Tuesday meme soon.

  6. I'm really looking forward to Of Dubious and Questionable Memory. Rachel McMillan has definitely become one of my favorite authors. I need to give Sarah Sundin's books a read sometime. They have such pretty covers!

    1. Rachel is one of my favorite authors too! She has a fabulous sense of style. Hope you like Sarah's if/when you read them, Miranda. So good! :)

  7. Oh I like your take on it. I know re-reading can be hard when you have so may new books to get to! I just recently finished The One (the Selection series original books) really and I did enjoy it. A Court of Thorns and Roses was so much fun and I'm LOVING the sequel thus far. PS I Like You, Unexpected Everything, and Nowhere But Here are all on my TBR list so hopefully they will be awesome!

    1. Hi, Eve. Thanks so much. I put this one together last minute but am glad I was able to think of so many great authors!

      Glad to know about The One (LOVE those books) and ACOTAR. Thanks so much for dropping by. :)

  8. I also don't re-read that much, because there are always so many books that I haven't read waiting in my library! I also really want to read Red Queen, it seems like we're some of the few who haven't read it. Great list, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Right!? There's simply too many newbies demanding our attention. :) I don't mind saying, I'm glad not to be the only person who hasn't read Red Queen, Kat. :) My pleasure. Thank you for the return visit.

  9. I did not know Kasie West was coming out with a new book! I'll definitely have to pick it up. Red Queen was ok for me. I'm going to read the next book before I decide on the series. Great list.

  10. This is the first year I've picked up anything but Kasie West. I'm not much of a contemporary reader, but I think her books are super cute and great for this time of year.

    1. I agree! Kasie's books are super cute, Alicia. So much fun tucked within their too few pages. :) Thanks for visiting.

  11. I've read The Ringmaster's Wife and the new Sarah Sundin, and both were excellent! I hope you enjoy them.:)
    The Lady and the Lionheart looks wonderful! I will have to add it to my TBR list.:)

    1. Thanks, Amanda! I'm quite certain I'll enjoy both; Sarah's is next for me soon as I finish Becky Wade's. :) I agree. Joanne's latest looks stunning. I'm sure the outside matches inside too. :)

  12. Your list is PERFECT!! I literally want to read all of these so badly. I just bought Red Queen last week too. Learned today that Bischof had a new book coming out and got so excited, but am even more so now that I see that beautiful cover! Again, amazing TTT!

    1. Isn't Joanne's cover a stunner, Bekah!? Cannot wait to read the beauty. Also, yay for Red Queen! Perhaps we'll both get that one read this summer. Or that's the goal, right!? ;)
