Waiting on Wednesday: I Was Here by Gayle Forman

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
I Was Here by Gayle Forman!!


From Goodreads: When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.. Gayle Forman just breaks my heart sometimes.  I absolutely loved her

THE TO-BE-READ TAG!

Nereyda tagged me!

1.  How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Ha, well . . . when I find I book I want to read (if it has been released or not released), I add it to my TBR list on Goodreads.  I also add it to my amazon wishlist.  Every day I check amazon for price drops and do a lot of my book purchasing based on those price drops (unless it is something I have pre-ordered).  As for day to day, I don't really have a dedicated TBR order or pile or list . . . 2.  Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
My TBR is exclusively ebook.  I really do not read print books anymore, at all! 3.  How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I am exactly like Nereyda in this respect -- I read by my mood.  Am I in the mood for a certain book that I've already read or something like something I've already read -- or the weather/season might dictate what I read next, etc. etc.4.  A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest? I think this is the first book I added on Goodreads hahaha

Waiting on Wednesday: Wicked (A Wicked Saga #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Wicked (A Wicked Saga #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout!!




From Goodreads: Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is …

Last Light (The Night Owl Trilogy #2) by M. Pierce!!




From Goodreads: Matt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that left only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead ...

Release Day Blitz and Giveaway: Finding Mr. Darcy: High School Edition by Erin Butler

Finding Mr. Darcy: High School Edition by Erin Butler Release Date: 09/16/14
Summary from Goodreads:
Sixteen-year-old Liza Johnson takes fangirl to a whole new level of crazy when she decides to take dating advice from her literary hero: Jane Austen.

With the help of her best friends, Liza sheds her ancient-speak and complete Austen wardrobe for something a bit more modern in an attempt at finding her very own Mr. Darcy.

Enter Will, the new kid and Liza's Darcy incarnate. Add her BFF's ex to mix and the sexy Brit who kisses with an accent, and Liza is in trouble.

So, what's a girl to do? Without her mom to go to relationship advice, Liza turns to the only person she can truly trust with matters of the heart via her mother's copy of COMPLETED WORKS OF JANE AUSTEN.

It's too bad Austen's heroines have never played Spin the Bottle or Seven Minutes in Heaven. Liza's determined to find her true Austen-esque happy ending, but if she can't trust herself instead of book…

Today, I am waiting on:  
Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3) by Maggie Stiefvater!!



From Goodreads: The third installment in the mesmerizing series from the irrepressible, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel. If you are not reading this series, you are seriously missing out.  It is one of the most beautifully written, complex and brilliant YA series …

Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!


1.  Hands down, my number one choice would be Olivia from The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher.  Let's be honest, though, I would not mind at all if Caleb joined her!
2. One of my latest favorite books is How to Kill a Rock Star -- although I love Eliza, I really want Loring to sit at my lunch table!
3.  Um, every single one of the Rock Chicksplease!!!!


4.  Rosalind James' Escape to New Zealand series is my favorite contemporary romance series out there right now and there isn't a main character in any of the books that I wouldn't love to sit with although I'd probably get along with Hannah best.
5.  If anyone would be a great and patient companion, it would be Anne Elliot.

6.  Kat and Daemon from the Lux series by JLA -- probably because there are so many epic lunch room scenes in this series and I love both characters.


7.  I don't know anyone that hasn't read and loved the Georgina Kincaid ser…
