Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! This week, we’re looking at my TBR (To Be Read) list. It’s a terrifying list in its length – I think it exceeds my life capacity, but that doesn’t stop me. This is one of the few places you’ll see grownup and kids’ books mashed together here at MomReadIt, because I do actually read Big Girl books, too. 😉
This list features a mix of published and yet-to-be-published books that are on my NetGalley list.
I love Neil Gaiman. I will read anything and everything he comes out with. If he published his grocery list, I’d read it. I also torture myself by getting Neil Gaiman’s books the day they come out, and waiting to read them. Because once it’s read, I have to wait for his next book. And that hurts me.
Prudence is another book I’ve been waiting for. I rabidly read every Gail Carriger book I can get my hands on. I’m most likely going to draw out the delicious anticipation with this one, too.
This one’s a middle grade book that I’ve received a galley for. I’ve tried to read more realistic middle grade fiction, because my collection needs some solid books, and have discovered some good authors and stories. I’m looking forward to this one; Running Press really puts out some solid stuff.
Having said that I need more familiarity with realistic fiction, I do love a good fantasy tale. I loved Carrie Ryan’s Forest of Hands and Teeth, so I’m interested in seeing what she does with middle grade fantasy. And there are pirates.
A graphic novel by French superstar artist, writer, blogger, and lady knight. This is Bagieu’s first US graphic novel, and it’s full of literary scandal. I can’t wait.
I’m always on the lookout for good picture books – I really don’t review them as often as I should, but I’ve been working to remedy that this year. Butterfly Park just works with spring, and I’m looking forward to seeing the illustrations by Elly McKay. This is another one I’ve received from Running Press, and I’m really excited about it.
Bob Shea’s Dinosaur Vs. series is straight-up awesome. I’m looking forward to seeing what he gives for beginning readers. I also need more books for my step-up from picture book readers, so I’m really hopeful for this one. If we’ve got another Elephant and Piggie-type series here, I will dance on my tables.
Another picture book! Yay! This one’s about a little girl with a big imagination. I think it’s going to be a great read-aloud book, and I’m already coming up with great read-alikes and craft ideas to go with it.
I jumped on this NetGalley offering because it sounds similar to Chris Grabenstein’s Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, which I adored. I’m always up for a good scavenger hunt through a book.
This one has been on my list forever because the wait lists have been INSANE. I may just buy it for myself. I love her positive messages for girls and women alike. I love Amy Poehler, period. Amy, The Bloggess, Tina Fey, and Mindy Kaling are my Girl Power Go-To, when I need my head back on straight. Throw in a side of Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh, and a cup of coffee, and I’m good to go.
