Really, this is more of a provisional TBR. These are the books I would like to get through but I am quite busy this month with a few debates, exams and also, excitingly enough, my trip to Italy! It’s less than twenty five days away and I am so excited!! They’re not in any way Hallowe’en-y but who cares.
But, getting on with my TBR, here we go!
1. How to Keep a Boy from Kissing You by Tara Eglington
Sweet sixteen and never been kissed . . .
That’s Aurora Skye’s big secret. And the way she wants it to stay. She’s not going to give away her first kiss to just anyone. Busy dodging suitors and matchmaking for her best friends, Aurora (not so) patiently awaits her prince.
But everything changes when Aurora is coerced into a lead role in the school production of Much Ado about Nothing. Which means she’ll have to lock lips with her co-star Hayden Paris―the smart and funny boy next door who also happens to be the bane of her existence, always around to see her at her worst.
Now Aurora is more determined than ever to have her first kiss with the one who’s truly worthy of it. But first she’ll have to figure out just who that person is.
Romantic and funny, Tara Eglington’s How to Keep a Boy from Kissing You is a feel-good tale of finding love where you least expect it.
So, I may be getting a little too old for books like this but I got it from Net Galley and plan on reading it this month. I think, they’re doing like a re-vamp or something because this book was originally published in 2013, but it has a different date for Net Galley.
2. See No Evil by Jordan Ford
All Christiana wanted was a little flirty fun.
What she got was a one-way ticket to her own personal nightmare.
Her friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.
It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.
Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.
But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat… and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?
She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.
In fact, it might just be catching up with her.
This is another ARC I have for the month. This is a romantic suspense. Not extremely in love with the idea from what the plot has given me, but I do love this author’s books.
3. You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day
From online entertainment mogul, actress, and “queen of the geeks” Felicia Day, a funny, quirky, and inspiring memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to Internet-stardom, and embracing her individuality to find success in Hollywood.
The Internet isn’t all cat videos. There’s also Felicia Day—violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, hoagie specialist, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world… or at least semi-influential in the world of Internet Geeks and Goodreads book clubs.
After growing up in the south where she was “home-schooled for hippie reasons”, Felicia moved to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming an actress and was immediately typecast as a crazy cat-lady secretary. But Felicia’s misadventures in Hollywood led her to produce her own web series, own her own production company, and become an Internet star.
Felicia’s short-ish life and her rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Now, Felicia’s strange world is filled with thoughts on creativity, video games, and a dash of mild feminist activism—just like her memoir.
Hilarious and inspirational, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should embrace what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now—even for a digital misfit.
I’m currently listening to this audiobook, narrated by Felicia Day herself, and it’s absolutely hilarious! I love Supernatural and I used to love Buffy so I’m excited to continue with this. I borrowed it off a friend and I’m so glad because it’s great.
4. Confessions of a Teenage B* by Crista McHugh.
Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch.
After years of being the subject of ridicule, she revels in her ability to make the in-crowd cower via the exposés on her blog, The Eastline Spy. Now that she’s carved out her place in the high school hierarchy, she uses her position to help the unpopular kids walking the hallways.
Saving a freshman from bullies? Check.
Swapping insults with the head cheerleader? Check.
Falling for the star quarterback? So not a part of her plan.
But when Brett offers to help her solve the mystery of who’s posting X-rated videos from the girls’ locker room, she’ll have to swallow her pride and learn to see past the high school stereotypes she’s never questioned—until now.
I hadn’t planned on reading this, I hadn’t even heard of it before today, but I saw a rave review over on Rant and Rave About Books and I’m kind of in the mood for something like this so I thought, why not? It’s also FREE on Amazon.
5. Prude by Jordan S Grey
Rebecca Washington is a girl in control. Well, at least when it comes to acing her college classes. The rest of the time, she seems to be at the mercy of everyone else. Like when she’s dumped in front of her peers, hit on right afterwards by a jerk for some stupid bet, and then paired up with the same jerk for a lit project.
In order to maintain her perfect GPA, Rebecca will need to give a stellar presentation while ignoring the prodding eyes that will be staring at her. When her partner, Derek, starts to ease her fears of public speaking with his laid back attitude, she’s forced to confront her new feelings about him and his charming smile. Rebecca knows falling for a guy who teases her for being a prudish nerd can only end badly, but what if it’s just another thing out of her control?
I requested this book for review from Xpresso book tours. I have until the end of December to read it but I’d like to get through it this month.
The rest of these books, I’m not going to give a summary for because they’re not for definite. I mean, none are for definite but these are less for definite. (Pretend that makes sense.) I am going to a book convention- Dept Con- on the 14th and 15th of October and there’s going to be loads of authors there and there are some I would like to meet/my friend would like to meet and I want to have a book for them to sign. So, yeah.
All of these authors will be there at Dept Con and I’m so excited to meet some of them and get my books signed. This will be the first book event I’ve ever been to! I also plan on going to the library tomorrow so I may get some more books there. Or, I may get some of the books above. I’m not sure yet.
October is a pretty good month for me with Dept Con and my trip to Italy coming up and hopefully my reading is just as good.
What’s on your TBR? Have you read any of these? If you have, I’d love to know your thoughts.
Thanks for reading!
