Top Ten Books to Read When NaNo is Over

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 

Today's topic is a freebie, so you can pick whatever topic you want. Since it's November, I'm quite busy with NaNoWriMo, which means I have less time for reading. As soon as November is over, I plan on curling up on the couch with a blanket and a huge stack of books. Here's my list of Top Ten Books I Want To Read After NaNoWriMo.

1. Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins- I've been wanting to read this for FOREVER, but just haven't gotten around to it. I'm pretty sure I'll have to reread the first book to refresh my mind before I dive into the sequel, which is totally fine with me because the first book was awesome.

2. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray- I read the first book over a year ago and loved it, but for whatever reason, never read the rest of the series. So I want to reread the first book and then read the other two.

3. The Casual Vacany by JK Rowling- I HAVE TO KNOW IF THIS IS ANY GOOD.

4. Burn for Burn by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han- I got this for my birthday (thanks Megan!), and I can't wait to start it!

5. The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan- I read the first book over the summer and loved it. But I think I might wait until Christmas break to read the rest of the books, so I can sit down and read the whole series back to back.

6. Feedback by Robison Wells- I thought Variant was amazing, so I'm really excited to find out what happens next in the sequel. I feel like Variant doesn't get the attention it deserves. It's such a great book!

7. Halo by Alexandra Adornetto- This is another book that I got for my birthday (from Megan, who says it's awesome) and it sounds really good.

8. The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab- I've had this one sitting on my shelf for quite awhile now, and I've heard such good things about it!

9. Two or Three Things I Forgot to Tell You by Joyce Carol Oates- The summary is pretty mysterious, so I'm not exactly sure what it's about. But for some reason I have this feeling that I'm going to love it.

10. Over You by Emma McLaughlin- I haven't seen too many reviews of this, so I don't really know what to expect, but it sounds like a fun and quick read.

I can't wait till December so I can read all of these. :D

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? Let me know below!

And leave links to your Top Ten Tuesday posts, of course!



  1. Great list! I loved the Gemma Doyle books--they were a rec from a student I worked with when I was in grad school, and they were among the first to mysteriously and permanently vanish from my classroom library when I was teaching! (Have you read Beauty Queens? I've never laughed out loud more at any book, ever.)

    And I *must* remember to put Feedback on my Christmas list--I devoured Variant and shared it with a student like a year ago, and I got an email from him a month or so ago asking what that great book was that started with a V, because he wanted to get the sequel but couldn't remember what it was. I had forgotten about it till then but I'm so glad he and you both reminded me.

    Keep up the great NaNoing!

    1. Yes, I read Beauty Queens. I LOVED it! What an amazing and weird and hilarious and unique book. :D
      And yay for reminding you about Feedback!

  2. I so need a few days to curl up with some good books and read too. Awesome list! Quite a few are books I have on my reading list too.

    I loved Variant too and I'm really looking forward to getting to Feedback :]

    1. OKAY COOL I WILL. (You know, as soon as I finish writing my own book.)
