TGIF: Christmas in July

This week I'm trying out a new meme! If I like this one, I think I'll continue with it and then stop there. In my opinion, two memes is a good number for my blog, as too many can be distracting.

TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. It poses a book related question and asks bloggers to respond to it.

Today, we are discussing what books we want Santa to bring down our chimney. Right now. I am asking him to bring me books that are being published so far off in the future that I could only get them using magic. And Santa is magic, right? (Just kidding. I never believed in him, even as a child.)

1.Cindy on a Mission by Kay Cassidy. I read The Cinderella Society a while ago and adored it, so of course I am eager for the sequel, which was supposed to hit shelves over a year ago. (What happened? Any information, anyone?)  Update: I just talked to the author on twitter, and she said that Egmont USA decided not to publish this book. Cue sadness.

2.The untitled final novel in the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter. This author=plotting genius. I cannot get enough of her storytelling, and the end of the fifth installment in her first series left me desperate to know how it ends. The other day, Ally Carter tweeted that she was finally beginning to work on it (!!!) but the late 2013-early 2014 release date estimate seems so far off.

3.Emmy & Oliver and Also Known As by Robin Benway. She mentioned her two new projects on her blog, but I haven't heard any more information about them. The synopsis sounds great, and if they are anything like the author's two previous novels, the books will be wonderful.

4.Burn for Burn, Fire with Fire, and Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian. The first book in this wonderful-sounding new trilogy has a rapidly approaching release date, but, at least if it ends up being as amazing as it's cover, I am going to have a hard time waiting a year for the next one, and then another year for the conclusion.

But alas, Santa is not real, so I will just wait patiently for these titles while I work through the many already published books on my TBR.

What books do you wish you had right now, even if it's impossible?


  1. Welcome to the meme!
    Nice list, I haven't read any of them, but hope you can get copies of them at some point :)

  3. Burn for Burn was actually pretty great! I didn't know what to expect going into it, but I ended up really enjoying it :)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love to hear your thoughts, and I read every one. You just became one of my favorite people, so I will try to visit your blog in return.
