What Next?

"What in the world would we do without our libraries?"
~ Katharine Hepburn


Okay, guys, I need your help. My TBR pile is out of control. I just finished Paranormalcy and I loved it. *sigh* Oh, how I loved it! So... what next?

Here are a few in my pile:

  • Linger
  • I am Number Four
  • Beautiful Creatures
  • The Forest of Hands and Teeth
  • Rules of Attraction
  • Num8ers
  • Sea Change
  • Veracity
  • Halo
As you can see, I have too many wonderful choices. So you get to decide which one I read next.

Which one do you suggest?

I've heard of some of these, but don't actually know the plot line, so this is kinda shooting in the dark.

If I were faced with this pile, I'd probably pick Halo or Rules of Attraction.

(Paranormalcy was wonderful, wasn't it?)

Hmmm...so tough. I don't have Halo yet, but I want to read it. It looks and sounds awesome.

Christine Fonseca said...

Dude - read Halo then let me know your thoughts okay??? Okay!

Terri Tiffany said...

Ok-- I am so out of it. I've not heard of any of them!!

Hannah Kincade said...

The only one I've read is the Forest of Hands and Teeth. I do have Num8ers in my TBR pile too!! Too many booksies so little time! Sigh.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I've read: Linger, Beautiful Creatures, TFOHAT, Rules of Attraction, and Sea Change.

I would go with either Linger or Rules of Attraction. ROA isn't as good as Perfect Chemistry, but I liked it (and Linger) better than anything else on the list.

I hear you about the list. I've got three books in the mail. One I'm waiting to ship. Nine new books sitting on my shelves, and tons I want to reread. I've got to seriously quit buying(and borrowing) books for the rest of the year.

Yeay, right!

Happy reading, Shannon. :D

I am 2.5 books away from I AM NUMBER FOUR and then LINGER is after that.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Halo--because I've been thinking of checking that one out myself. :)

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

I vote for Linger:-)

Diane said...

Eeeeek! I haven't read any of those..... :O) I seem to be behind the times.....

Mariah Irvin said...

LINGER!!!

Valerie Geary said...

Forest of Hands and Teeth!! *chants*: Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!

Jana said...

Linger first.
Save The Forest...for October when I have ZOMBIE WEEK on my blog.

Jennie Englund said...

Hi Shannon!

I say go with NUM8ERS.

Me, I'm taking a quick break from YA with an adult turn-of-century novel.

Jayne said...

I haven't heard of any, so I would go for alphabetical order!

Elana Johnson said...

Okay, I started Num8ers at least three times. Couldn't get into it. I don't know why, I'd wanted it forever.

BC was...a bit slow for me. As was Linger. But they're both worth reading.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth is one of my absolute FAVES. As is Rules of Attraction. Those are both awesome.

I want I am Number Four and Halo, so I can't comment as I haven't read those.

And I've never even heard of Sea Change and Veracity... Googling my library right now!

j.leigh.bailey said...

Okay, you have a lot on your list that I'm considering, but I want to tell you that Rules of Attraction changed the way I look at YA literature and writing in general. After reading it, I was forced to re-evaluate everything I thought I liked in a book. It's really edgy, but if that doesn't bother you, I'd totally look in that direction. Until I read Hunger Games, it was the best book I'd read in years.

Susan R. Mills said...

I haven't read any of them, so I don't have any advice. I'm going to stop back by later and see what everyone else suggested. Some of those books are in my TBR pile too.

AchingHope said...

I want to read Paranormacly! *sigh*

Well, I'd say Linger - because I don't really know anything about the other, except for Forest of Hands and Teeth, which was a weird one, because I liked the story but disliked the main character, and could never decide what I thought about it.

Good luck deciding! :)

Roxane B. Salonen said...

Shannon, gotta love a healthy TBR pile. I haven't read any of this, so, why not just close your eyes and point? Kind of like pin the tail on the donkey. Wherever your finger lands is the winner. :)

Happy to see you, always. :)

Julie Dao said...

I haven't read any of those! Looks like you have a terrific reading list and you'll have a great book no matter what you choose :) I guess I would say, what do you feel like? Horror, suspense, romance...

Tamika: said...

I haven't read any of these:( It looks like I need to cruise through Amazon this evening.

Kimberly Franklin said...

They're all so great! I'm not sure I could pick an order. :)

Have fun!!

aspiring_x said...

i wish i could help, but i haven't read any of those!! close your eyes and point??

Sandy Shin said...

I haven't read the majority of these, but NUM8ERS has always fascinated me. It's definitely high on my to-read list!

Patti said...

My advice is almost the same as Elana's. Linger was slow for me as was Beautiful Creatures. I devoured The FOHANDT. And I was looking at purchasing I am Number Four this week to read. Haven't heard of hte others.

Carolyn V. said...

I think you should just pick a number and grab one. They all sound so good!

Jamie Burch said...

Isn't it wonderful that there are so many good books in our TBR piles? Mine keeps growing, but I'd say that's a great problem to have.

My vote is The Forest of Hands and Teeth. That's in my pile, too!

Happy reading!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Ooh, most of those are sat on my shelf right now. I'd suggest Linger. But it's so hard to decide since I love The Forest of Hands and Teeth...and I Am Number Four. Oh all of them. Sorry, I'm no help at all. lol.

Patti Lacy said...

Clueless in Normal!!!

Sara McClung ♥ said...

It's a tie! Beautiful Creatures or The Forest of Hands and Teeth!

Lynn said...

I know what it is like to have TBR stack! And I'm off to receive another right away at Book Club. Going to sound cliche, but follow your heart on what to read next. Let us know what you pick!

Cleverly Inked said...

I haven't read Halo though I have heard FAB things. Linger and BC was pretty good and I really enjoyed SC and RA. This is a tough choice.

Jemi Fraser said...

Good choices! Those are all on my wishlist too. Hmmm... I think I'd start with Linger. I think.

DL Hammons said...

Sorry...can't be much help here. Not much of a YA reader. I'd go for the one with the largest page count! :)

Erica M. Chapman said...

Ooo Beautiful Creatures is great, so is Rules of Attraction ;o) Those are my votes. Have fun!! Great books on that list ;o)

Bethany Mattingly said...

I've heard the most wonderful things about Linger, Beautiful Creatures, and The Forest of Hands and Feet. Though, I have yet to read them myself. :)

Janna Qualman said...
