This list is going to be a little more like top ten ish, because I already talked about some of my top ones last week.  

c.j.'s selections                         ten ten ten

Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti 

I've long loved the Uglies series.  Westerfeld's writing is so cheeky and fun.  I can't wait to see what he and his co-authors do with this awesome idea of less-than-super superheroes.  
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo 

Because obviously.  Grisha4Life.  Seriously, though, Leigh is brilliant. 

Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

I heard of this a long time ago, but it came back to my attention when I saw the movie trailer--which looked poignant and hysterical.  So obviously I must read the book.  

I Crawl Through It by A.S. King 

I'm really trying not to make this list a repeat of last week, but I am dying to read this.  A.S. King is one of my literary idols. 

American Gods by Neil Gaiman 

I'm slowly working my way through everything Neil.  American Gods is next on my list.  It's so iconic, I can't believe I haven't read it yet.  

Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk 

Speaking of working my way through...I'm just a few books away from having read everything published by Chuck.  

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken 

I think I'm one of two people who haven't read this yet.  Plus, it'll be a good warm-up before I read Passenger.  And she's delightful.  

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson 

First, this series seems really interesting and full of pathos and stuff.  Second, Maureen Johnson seems like one of the coolest, snarkiest people on earth.   

The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodr Dostoyevsky 

I'm gonna finish it this time!  I swear!  I love my Russians; I just get so sidetracked.  

Rook by Sharon Cameron 

I haven't gotten a hold of this yet, which is tragic.  The Dark Unwinding and its sequel are some of my favorite underhyped books. 


  1. So many good titles on this list. Expansive too. My List was not. I can vouch for American Gods and The Name of the Star for being dark and heavy but brilliant. Happy Reading!

  2. This looks like a really great list. I haven't read any of them but now I'm a bit interested.

  3. I'm really looking forward to Six of Crows even though I'm not a fan of Shadow and Bone (unfortunately I only read book1). Hope you enjoy your summer reads! :)

  4. I have Rook sitting here, in wait for Paris in July, I think.

    Enjoy your reads!

    Here's what I plan to read this summer!

  5. You know, I really need to read AMERICAN GODS as well. I don't know why I keep putting that one off.

  6. Great list! I hope you like American Gods!

    Check out my TTT.

  7. Zeroes, Six of Crows and Darkest Minds are all ones I still need to read too, but I have copies of them all. Hopefully we can both get to them soon :) Good luck with your Summer trb CJ^^ x

  8. Nice picks CJ! Six of Crows I am so desperate to get hold of! Hope you get to read some of these :-) Here's my TTT if you would like to check it out :-) Have a great day! :-)
