TBR Tuesday: Take A Bow & The List

TBR Tuesday: Showcasing all the books that are currently staring at you from your "Why aren't you reading me?" pile....

On my TBR

For TBR Tuesday, I generally try to show books that have either been on my shelves for far too long, or books I either don't know when I'll have time to read or don't know if I even WILL read.  Today, I want to show you two books that haven't been on my shelves very long (less than 2 weeks in 1 case, and about a day in the other), but that I find myself curious about.  These April releases were both unsolicited copies from Scholastic, and though I'm not much of a contemporary reader (I feel like I say that a lot), I've been coming around to the fact that I really do like contemporary - I just have to find contemp that suits me.
So I don't know when I'll be able to read them, and I feel like I'm scheduled with books up to my upper eyelashes, but both of these appeal to me, and I'm curious what you think of them.

Take A Bow: This one comes from Elizabeth Eulberg, whom you may remember from last year's Jane in June, when I reviewed her P&P retelling, Prom and Prejudice.  That was super cute, and I had seen Take A Bow pop up various places around the interwebs, so when it and its beautiful cover showed up in my mailbox, I was understandably pleased.  It doesn't come out until April 1st, so I know many of you won't have read it yet.  But for those that were lucky enough to get ARCs or early finished copies and have read them, what did you guys think?  And for those of you who haven't read it, are you planning to?

The List: I just recently saw this one for the first time.  Like, maybe last week.  I came across it on Good Books and Good Wine, and April's enthusiasm over getting a copy made me curious. I thought about checking on it on Goodreads just to see what it was about, but that was as far as I got.  I'm...easily distracted.  Something shiny took me away from the page and I forgot to add it or look into it further.  But a few days later - lo and behold, my very OWN shiny copy for me to get excited about.  And when I flipped open the jacket and read what it was about, I got even more excited.  Yes, it is very contemporary, but it also sounds right up my alley.  I'll get into why when I finally get around to read it, but needless to say, I'm eager for this one.
This one, again, comes out April 1st.  Any of you read it or looking forward to it?

So what's lurking in your TBR this week?

  1. I want both of these and will be buying them both as birthday presents since April 1=their release date/Liz's birthday. YES.


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