Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Play Hooky With

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Every week focuses on a different topic and you make a top ten list from it! This week: My Top Ten Books (coming out in 2012) I'd Play Hooky With

First off, it's funny that I'd be playing hooky to read a book when I work at a bookstore. I see the irony. But, it's a job and I can't read books while on the floor, so hooky would have to be taken...

1. Shadows (Ashes #2) by Ilsa J. Bick
I almost peed my pants when my store got this book. It came upon me unawares and I got a tad excited. It looks awesome and it's thick. With the way Ashes ended, I can't wait to pick up this book, but I'd need a lot of time available to digest it.

2. The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse
One of the books I'm most looking forward to this year. It sounds amazing.

3. Rebel Heart (Dust Lands #2) by Moira Young
Can't wait until I get my hands on this. The moment I do...*cough cough* I'm not feeling too well.

4. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
This is kind of a long book and I always reserve those for my days off so I can read as much as I can. It sounds great, but I'd probably like an extra day so I could take my time...

5. Gilt by Katherine Longshore
Honestly, it's not a book I'm so much looking forward to, but more like I feel obligated to read it (don't worry, I won't review it if my review is based on bias). I'm kind of "Tudor" obsessed and read/watch anything about it. I think Catherine Howard was...not smart and am not her biggest fan, but it helps that the story is told through a friend's eyes. One of my coworkers read it and actually really liked it, so that got me happy! I'll need a full day or two with this one.

6. Shine (Shade #3) by Jeri Smith-Ready
Because it's the conclusion to what has been an awesome series!

7. BZRK by Michael Grant
I started this one but had to stop because I knew it wasn't going to be a "quick read." I'd need a day to take my time with this one.

8. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
This book has appeared on many of my lists. I've been waiting to read this forever. I have a copy and now just need to find that right day.

9. Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth

10. Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Interrupt me while I read this and I'll kick you. I'll take a day with no interruptions, please.

What books would you play hooky with??


  1. Gilt, Seraphina and For Darkness Shows the Stars have been on my radar for ages. I can't wait to read them. + New follower.

  2. I actually called off or scheduled off to read:

    Catching Fire
    Spells by Aprilynne Pike
    Wild by Aprilynne Pike
    These is My Words by Nancy Turner

    I mean, what is wrong with me?! Ha! I can't think of spending my day doing anything better than reading. Now, I have a baby and there are no hooky days to be had.

  3. Oh no! How did I forget to add For Darkness Shows the Stars on my TTT. I'm also really excited to have the second of the Ashes series - that ending was one major cliffhanger.

  4. Hi there, just popping in... Oh Gilt sounds awesome, great choices.

    I’m also your newest follower!

  6. I'd definitely need to play hooky for SHINE! Once I start that one, I won't be stopping. Also, I've heard it's super emotional, so I'll need to day to keep my cry face private :0)

  7. Great list! The cover of Seraphina is breath-taking. Would love for you to stop by and check out my Top Ten. New follower via GFC :)

  8. Excellent list...I'd agree with all of these. Except that I haven't read Shade/Shift (I'm the only person left in the world, I know.) I think The Forsaken sounds awesome...
