tbr tuesday [11]

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!

Sister Mischief by Laura Goode
July 2011, Candlewick Press

A gay suburban hip-hopper freaks out her Christian high school - and falls in love - in this righteously funny and totally tender YA debut, for real.
why i'm interested: this is SO far off the beaten path for me that i'm super intrigued. and also, it takes place in Minneapolis. what up, twin cities!

March 2009, MTV Books

All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn't make it back.

John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge -- and over....

why i'm interested: after adoring my first Jennifer Echols experience, i'm ready to give another one a shot!

what books are in your ever-expanding to-read list?

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. You will fall in love with Officer After in Going Too Far. Make it happen soon!

    P.S. I see you're giving Fashionista another shot ;-)

  2. I'm 0 for 2 with Echols' novels, but i haven't read going too far yet. everyone says its their favorite, so i'm hoping i'll love it too :)

  3. Going too Far is actually sitting in my giant book pile right this moment. I'm trying to get to it, but every time I go to the library I end up getting so many more books I just end up burying it again :P

  4. Jasmine - i totally understand!


Hey you! What do you have to say?
