2nd Quarter Reading List 2013

Three more months and fifteen books checked off the TBR and it’s time for another quarterly reading list!


As usual, there were lots of books I adored this past quarter, but two in particular have made me want to push them onto every book lover I know.


Texas Gothic and Spirit and Dust, the first two books in the Goodnight Family Series by Rosemary Clement-Moore.


These books, you guys. THESE BOOKS. I can’t even. They are currently vying with Shadow and Bone and Divergent for my favorite book series, and you KNOW how much I love those.


They’re like these super clever, funny, spooky, sexy paranormal-gothic-horror mash-ups, featuring ghosts and psychics and Egyptian mythology and super hot cowboys and super hot… not cowboys, and I have a feeling these books are going to be stuck in my head for a long, long time.


You should just go read them. Like, right now. Go.

I also want to give a hearty shout-out to Jennifer E. Smith’s The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, because it was beyond adorable and kept me up late and made me all girly-swoony for a couple days. I can’t wait to read her newest book!
