brought to you by: the broke and the bookish

Jeni's Picks
1. The Secret of Pembrooke Park by Julie Klassen: I love this author and am so happy she is coming to Utah for a book signing in 2 weeks. 

2. Captive by Aimee Carter:

3. Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin: I have been waiting forever of this series to be complete. I only read the first one and then decided to wait so I'm starting from the beginning. 

4. Lady Emma's Campaign by Jennifer Moore: I loved Becoming Lady Lockwood so I am very much looking forward to reading Emma's story. 

5. The Partials Sequence by Dan Wells: I enjoyed his John Cleaver series even though they gave me nightmares. I figure I should give his Sci-fi trilogy a try.

Top Ten Tuesday: Sequels We Can't Wait to Get
brought to you by: the broke and the bookish

Jeni's Picks:
1. Lady Emma's Campaign by Jennifer Moore: Sequel to Becoming Lady Lockwood. This is kind of cheating because it just came out but I can't wait to get it and read it.  In fact I think I'll go pick it up today. 
2. Captive by Aimee Carter: Sequel to Pawn 

3. Forbidden Sea 2 by Sheila Nielson: This one doesn't have a title yet. My book club got to meet the author and she read the first chapter to us. Supposedly it is coming out in March 2015. 

4. Winter by Marissa Meyer: 4th book in the series The Lunar Chronicles.  Fairytale retellings are the best and these series is awesome!!

5. Dearest by Althea Kontis: Sequel to Enchanted and Hero (the Woodcutter Sisters series.) I can't wait to read this to my daughters. We loved the two previous books. 

6. The Devil's Only Friend by Dan Wells: 4th in the John Cleaver series. If you need a little bit of horror.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I want to re-read
brought to you by: the broke and the bookish

Jeni's picks:
1. Edenbrooke by Juliane Donaldson: I have actually re-read this three times but every time I enjoy it. 

2. Unearthly by Cynthia hand: This is one series I would re-read. It is the only series where I couldn't decide which boy I wanted the main character to stay with. 

3. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder: I love her books and this is the first book I read by her.

4. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier: I've re-read this before but I still haven't finished the series so I'm thinking I should start from the beginning again.

5. In the Hall of the Dragon King by Stephen Lawhead: This is one of the first fantasy novels that I read and really enjoyed. I want to revisit this world again in the future. His Robin Hood re-telling is another great series.

6. When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead: I read this book with the 12 year old book club that I host and we loved it. Now that I know what happened I wonder if I would get more out of the book then the first time around.

7. Maid at Fairbourne Hall by Julie Klassen: This is my favorite Klassen novel. I've re-read it before and I'll re-read it again.

8. Wither by Lauren DeStefano: This book is the only one I like out of the trilogy so if I re-read it again I will imagine a different ending.

9. Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn: Halloween re-read. I'm not big on spooky books and since I've read this before I don't get as freaked out.

10. Drops of Gold by Sarah M. Eden: I've read every book by this author and this one is my favorite. Layton Jonquill…yum.
