#2: The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout! This is the second book I picked up yesterday from Coles. It isn't one I had heard of before, but it's one I saw listed as one of the 'Top Teen Titles of 2016" on the Chapters/Indigo website, and I decided to take a look. I think it's because of my recent enjoyment of the title If I Was Your Girl that has me intrigued by the female protagonist and what sort of event/tragedy might have happened to her. Also, I found it quite interesting that the male protagonist suffers from an affliction known as Face Blindness, something I was first introduced to through a Korean Drama I started watching a couple years ago (can't quite remember the title, know it has "Boss" somewhere in the title, that's all I remember, sorry XP). It's something I've yet to see introduced in a YA title, and I can't wait to see how the author presents this affliction.
#3: Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick! I'm a bit of a sucker for any film starring Anna Kendrick, though I regret to admit that I haven't actually seen too many of them just yet. I really want to see The Last Five Years, and that movie's on my To Be Watched list for sure :P I received this book for Christmas, and it's the only non-fiction title that made its way onto my Christmas list. I'm really interested in learning more about her, as an actress and as a person, because she's got such an awesome personality and I bet this book is going to contain plenty of laughs.
#4: Exit, Pursued By A Bear by E. K. Johnston! Admittedly this is a book I've already started reading, but I've barely made it 30 pages in, so I'm still counting it as part of my TBR list, because I've been having a lot of trouble getting back into reading lately, which is why my GoodReads yearly reading goal is a lot smaller this year. But I was captivated by the plot of this book, and it was the first book I asked for around the holidays, and I was thrilled to unwrap it on Christmas morning. I'm pretty positive that this book is a modern interpretation of Shakespeare's A Winter's Tale, mainly because the title is a line from that script and the main character's last name is Winter, but I haven't read or seen the play myself so I'm not 100% certain. I highly recommend picking up this title, and I haven't even finished reading it yet! It just screams "good read" to me!
#5: Heartless by Marissa Meyer! Last autumn, I binged the entire Lunar Chronicles audio books, and I absolutely loved the series. I even gave a copy of Cinder to my sister-in-law for Christmas because I knew she would enjoy the series just as much as I did. I was super excited when I heard that Marissa Meyer was releasing another book, and because of the overall size and cost of the book, I made sure to put it on my Christmas list instead of picking it up for myself. Now I own it, and it's on my TBR list!
Looks like 2017 is off to a great start when it comes to the books I have to look forward to! :D What books to you currently have on your TBR lists? What are you currently reading right now?
