TGIF (3): Christmas in July

TGIF at GReads is a feature for Fridays to propose a a book-related question to everyone and to re-cap the week's posts. Definitely a fun thing for book lovers to participate in. 

This Friday's Question:
 If Santa were to come down your chimney in the middle of summer,
which books would you want him to leave for you under the tree?

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Two books and almost a week later, my mind still keeps drifting back to this story.  I even went to Books of Wonder yesterday to pick up a hard copy but unfortunately it wasn't in stock.  If there's one book I wouldn't mind finding under the tree today, it would be this!

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

I was just talking about a Clockwork Prince with a friend yesterday and we couldn't stop talking about what a tough and well-done love triangle this series has.  I don't envy the choice Tessa had to make (and will probably continue to make) but I have to admit - a huge part of me is still rooting for Will although I don't want Jem to get his heart broken too.  I can't wait to read what happens in this book! Only 8 more months to go..

Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

I remember reading Daughter of Smoke & Bone (the first in this series) and thinking it was one of the most creative books I had ever read.  I also remember assuming that it was a standalone novel, reaching the last page, reading the words "to be continued..." and wanting to scream.  So to say that I'm looking forward to the second book would be an understatement.

The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy by Jenny Han

I love this series about growing up, first loves, and summers spent by the beach. I have all three books on my nook.. but I'd love hardcovers of all three to display on my shelves.  

 This Week's Recap:
.. and, I have a brand new layout!

  1. Tiger Lily! I really want to read that one, and will possibly pick it up soon. And I'm slowly collecting the Summer series. I have 2/3 already!
