Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff – First of all, there’s no Jay book I would never NOT want desperately to get my hands on. Second, I’m not normally a fan of vamp books so I am DYING to see what Jay does with it! Change my mind, mister Kristoff! TRUEL1F3 by Jay Kristoff – The ending of DEV1AT3 was KILLER!

I have a whole shelf on Goodreads dedicated to books that made me cry, but I also count ones that only made me shed a tear or two in addition to the ones that made me feel like my soul was being ripped from my body. Those are the ones I want to highlight in this post – the books that made me ugly cry.

Words cannot describe how incredible the world is! Sorcery of Thorns – Another one that […]

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl This week’s topic is things that make me pick up a book! Here are things I look for: A gorgeous cover. Let’s face it, I’m a shallow creature. If the cover is pretty enough it doesn’t even need a synopsis. Fave genres. If the book is one of my preferred genres, I’m definitely adding it to my TBR list at the very least.
