  2. Heir of Fire is on my list too even though technically I've got like 60 pages left to read. It's already a favorite <33

  5. I got Heir of Fire for review this week! I can't wait to read your review for it. I am looking forward to reading it myself too!

    I am going to read The Shock of the Fall this month. I have read loads of good reviews for it and I am glad it was on your list! :)

    Thanks for sharing & great TTT :)

  8. I haven't read any of these yet, but hope to get to Rainbow Rowell soon!

  9. I have so many of these on my TBR list! I've not yet read Attachments but I really liked Eleanor & Park and I LOVED Fangirl.

    I've got Heir of Fire but not yet started it - I'm saving it for a time when I have less on and can devote all my attention to it :D

    1. I think I'm the opposite of everyone else when it comes to Rainbow Rowell! Attachments is probably my favourite, although I think rationally I can tell E&P is the better book. I wasn't that fussed with Fangirl.

      Yeah HoF is a pretty long book. I probably shouldn't have picked it for holiday reading as it seemed like it went on forever. But it's so good...and there must be more to come (I thought it was a trilogy, but maybe plans changed).

  10. I've just added all of these to my TBR list! I've got She Is Not Invisible on my shelf already so maybe I should read it next :)

  11. A few of these are new to me, and I've added a couple to my Goodreads list – thanks for putting them on my radar!

  12. I almost started THE THREE last night! I've been really looking forward to it but am actually glad I came across your review before reading it. I definitely would have gone in with the wrong expectations!

  13. Great list! I've read Glaze and Attachments both of which I loved and I have Heir of Fire, The Three and The Shock of the Fall all sitting on my bookshelves waiting to be read! I've just started She Is Not Invisible, I'm 70 pages so far and really enjoying it, it's so different to most of his other books but I'm a huge fan of his writing and I expect this one will end up a keeper too :)

    1. I haven't read any of his other books, but from my preconceptions, this was so different to what I was expecting. I have a few of his other son my TBR, so I will give them a go with an open mind :)

  14. Eee I love that cover of Attachments! I have a different cover, and still need to get to reading it! :) The Three looks creepy good!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

    1. Apart from Fangirl (which was a different publisher) they've made her covers match here. Although I think I prefer the US covers of her other books.

  15. Really nice to read your choices and get some different reading ideas. I haven't read any of them, I most fancy Friday Brown and also hope to read Shock of the Fall this month.

  16. Just bought The Three for my husband's birthday, so I'm pleased to see it on your list :)

  17. I haven't read any of these yet. Eleanor & Park is the only Rainbow Rowell I've gotten to read so far. And I really need to read Throne of Glass! Great picks!

  18. I loved Vikki Wakefield's debut novel so of course I need to read Friday Brown :D I have added several books on my wishlist now, love that your choices almost all were books not too much mentioned this year. That way your list became a list for unknown gems for me :)
