Sometimes TTT topics make me a little nervous, because I’m just not sure what’s going to end up on my list. This week, I knew I would have NO PROBLEM coming up with ten books that were rough for me to read. Some of these were tough because of the subject matter, some were just...eek–so cringe-worthy! And you know me, if ...
This week, Jessie from Jessie Reads Everything is sharing her stuff! Jessie and I are Twitter blog buddies, and one of these days I’ll finish the #GalsReadToG read-along we participated in together…I’ve read Throne of Glass and the prequels, and then I got distracted! In addition to her own blog, Jessie’s a contributor over at Spines and Covers and at Goldilox and ...
Confession: I’ve never read Cyrano de Bergerac, but I’ve seen Roxanne, so that counts, right?   Sway is a retelling of Cyrano, from a modernized, YA point of view. For those who don’t know the basics: boy uses friend to woo girl for him. Friend falls for girl, and everything falls apart. Sway, aka Jesse Alderman, is the “friend” in this story. He’s a ...

“I need your help. You see, your friends are hot. And you, darling, are the Duff.” Yep–I’ll admit it, I picked up this book purely based on the title. It got me. It might be hard to see in that cover photo, but DUFF stands for Designated. Ugly. Fat. Friend. I honestly don’t know whether my junior high/high school experiences were entirely ...
I’m so excited to be featuring Tumblr blogger Jamie from Belle333Black today! Jamie is a super-awesome book nerd (her blog is like a black hole of fun, people–you want ideas for what to watch, read, ship–she’s got recs for ALLLL of it!) just like the rest of us, but she’s also crazy talented in a way I could never, ever be, and ...
“I missed night. I had other reasons to disobey, too like wanting to escape the cameras, but most of all, I missed the deep, vacant darkness of night.” I love a good first line, and the beginning of The Vault of Dreamers captured me, immediately. Anyone who’s read O’Brien’s Birthmarked trilogy knows what a statement she’s making with that first ...
Everybody, say hi to Lindsay! She blogs over at The Broke Book Girls, and she keeps me in supply of Benedict Cumberbatch tweets, great book recs, and generally fabulous conversation. Love her to pieces! ~ FREE TIME WITH LINDSAY ~ I don’t have a whole lot of “free” time these days. My 4 year old son is super busy ALL THE TIME, ...
“No matter how much I want it to be true, I can’t be dead and alive all at once.” I just read over all the things I highlighted while reading Words and Their Meanings, trying to choose a good one to start off my review. The problem is, they’re all spectacular. I finished the book less than a week ago, and after ...

So this is what you’re getting from me. Random. But these are some of my favorite underrated, under-the-radar books ...
