The life of an author is a busy one. Some may envision writers having tons of free time to relax and kick back with a good book, but truthfully, the only book I'm reading these days is my own as I'm typing it on the computer. I have very little time to sit down and read, but that doesn't mean I don't get excited about books. Here are the books that I tell myself I'm going to read if I ever get a moment...
Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry Okay, I lied. I have read this one, but it technically isn't even out yet. (One of the perks of being friends with the author and living in the same town.) Breaking the Rules is the continuation of Echo and Noah's story from Pushing the Limits. I love these two characters, and their story is even more wonderful and heartbreaking in Breaking the Rules.
Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid Let's Get Lost is a road-trip story that sounds like a lot of fun. It’s the perfect book for traveling this holiday season; I think I'll take it with me on the long drive up to the in-laws’ place.
Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor If I could just have an uninterrupted afternoon, this is the book I would grab first. I've been dying to finish Karou and Akiva's story ever since Days of Blood & Starlight. They're the couple that makes me sigh and melt into a swooning puddle of goo. With the huge amount of obstacles they face, it'll be hard for them to get their happy ending, but I'm crossing my fingers for them.
White Hot Kiss and Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout Confession: I have not yet read any of Jennifer's books. I know, it's shameful. I intend to remedy that soon, and when that day comes, I'll start with this series. I mean, no-brainer, it features gargoyles and demons—mortal enemies—and a girl who is both!
The Fall by Bethany Griffin I love Poe and creepy ghost tales, and The Fall of the House of Usher was a story that haunted me as a kid. I can't wait to see this story told from Madeline Usher's point of view.
