Five Books I Can't Wait to Read

I've had to stop myself from buying more books lately (and I'm hoping I'll be able to keep it up) -- partly because I'm saving as much as I can for a car and partly because I already have so many books to read that are sitting on my shelves and right now they would make me feel guilty for buying something new. (Unless, of course, it was a really awesome book that I MUST OWN.)

And with this in mind, here are five books on my shelves right now that I can't wait to read.

1. Imaginary Girls
Nova Ren Suma
To be 100% honest from everything I've heard about this book I'm betting it's either going to be a DNF (did not finish) or I'm going to be absolutely and completely in love with it. So obviously I'm hoping for the second option. I'm thrilled that it's about sisters (awww!) and by Nova Ren Suma, who is one of the most inspiring writers out there to me. Plus, that cover. Brilliant.

2. Momzillas
Jill Kargman
It's been quite a while since I've read a funny book for adults and this one looks absolutely wonderfully humorous, and I'm hoping it lives up to that. The whole idea of it is really interesting to me.

3. It's Not Summer Without You
Jenny Han
I'm super excited to read this one and the third/last book in the trilogy (We'll Always Have Summer). I don't know when I'll actually get to them but I loved the first book so stinkin' much and can't wait to finish the series. 

4. Populazzi
Elise Allen
I don't entirely know why, but I'm just really really jazzed about this book.

5. Life As We Knew It
Susan Beth Pfeffer
I've been wanting to read this one for so long. I've heard lots of really good things about it and it's incredibly intriguing to me.


  1. I've read three of the five, and Imaginary Girls is on my must-read list as well.

    I'm not going to lie, I didn't care for Populazzi. I think it'll work for a lot of people, but it didn't work for me.

  2. Clementine Bojangles
    Ah, I'm really hoping Populazzi works for me -- I'm reading Spoiled right now (which seems similar) and it isn't blowing me away.

  3. LOVE that you're jazzed to read Populazzi! Whether or not it works for you (though of course I hope it does), I appreciate you putting it on your list, and taking the time to read it!

    All the best,


  4. I just finished We'll Always Have Summer and LOVED IT!!! I'm also excited to read Imaginary Girls too- you're right about Nova Ren Suma being inspiring.

  5. I want to read Imaginary Girls, too! It sounds awesome!
