TBR Tuesday: A Need So Beautiful

Most of us have books we've bought with all intentions of reading (or maybe just because it was cheap!), only to have them fade away on a shelf or disappear into a stack of books, never to be seen or thought of again.
TBR Tuesday is a way to talk about the books we own but haven't read, see what other people think about them, and help us decide whether to bump it up our list or knock it off completely.
[If you're more a book borrower than a book buyer, you're still welcome to participate with the books that you've been meaning to read and haven't!]

On my TBR

A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
Fantasy, 267 pages
June 21st 2011 by Balzer & Bray

We all want to be remembered. Charlotte's destiny is to be Forgotten...

Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.

But Charlotte never wanted this responsibility. What she wants is to help her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend's arms forever. But as the Need grows stronger, it begins to take a dangerous toll on Charlotte. And who she was, is, and will become--her mark on this earth, her very existence--is in jeopardy of disappearing completely.

Charlotte will be forced to choose: Should she embrace her fate as a Forgotten, a fate that promises to rip her from the lives of those she loves forever? Or is she willing to fight against her destiny--no matter how dark the consequences.

This was a pure cover-appeal impulse buy for me during the Borders liquidation sales.   I had vaguely skimmed some glowing reviews, but it's not like I really remembered a thing any of them said.  Just an overall sense of "read it" and "pretty" made me reach for it.
So yeah, no idea when I'm going to get around to reading this one.  Any of you read it?  Love it, hate it, indifferent?  Should I bump it up the pile, or should I have resisted the pretty?

What's clinging to your TBR pile this week?

  1. I have read some review that put this one on my wish list, but have not yet purchased it. I like this meme too and will have check back from now on and participate too as my TBR shelf is way out of control.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
