tbr tuesday [8]

the following lovely ladies have inspired this new meme for me - inspired by "a peek at my TBR" by Jen atMakeshift Bookmark, "Waiting on Wednesday" by Jill at Breaking the Spine and "Books to Pine For" by Kristi at The Story Siren.

here's a look at two books i have sitting in my To Be Read pile. i don't necessarily own these books, but they are books i intend to get around to reading soon!




April 2010, Amulet Books (imprint of Abrams)
In this funny, uncannily wise portrait of the dynamics of a sixth-grade class and of the greatness that sometimes comes in unlikely packages, Dwight, a loser, talks to his classmates via an origami finger puppet of Yoda. If that weren’t strange enough, the puppet is uncannily wise and prescient. Origami Yoda predicts the date of a pop quiz, guesses who stole the classroom Shakespeare bust, and saves a classmate from popularity-crushing embarrassment with some well-timed advice. Dwight’s classmate Tommy wonders how Yoda can be so smart when Dwight himself is so clueless. With contributions from his puzzled classmates, he assembles the case file that forms this novel.

i want to read this one because i'm totally into the Middle Grade books lately, because Tom Angleberger writes some hilarious novels, AND i lurve me some Star Wars. yeah, this is pretty much my perfect storm.

December 2010, Dutton 

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.


As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?

are there any books that you've been wanting to read forever and ever that you think i might like? let me know in the comments!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. This is a great new meme. I might have to participate. I still havent read it myself. I have it but my sister is borrowing it right now and she loved it. I am also loving the first book will have to check it out.

  2. I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss yet either. Which means that I won't be reading Lola as soon as it drops. And that I'm not passing it around currently. So you're not alone. You're never alone.

    I still haven't read Divergent. And Game of Thrones. And The Gunslinger, which I have PROMISED Mike I would read soon since he is going thru The Hunger Games series currently. (i know. i know. i know.)

    There are a bazillion more, but I will stop there for fear of knocking you out with my uncool quotient.
