TBR for the Week (5)

Last week...didn't go quite as planned. 

1.) Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
2.) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
3.) Skylark by Meagan Spooner
4.) Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
5.) Kissing Shakespeare by Pamela Mingle
6.) Freebie: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
7.) Freebie: With Seduction in Mind by Laura Lee Guhrke

I can actually...mostly explain this week. I was reading Pushing the Limits when I realized my Kindle battery was low but I wanted to read while it was charging. None of my books for the week were physical books. So I picked up For Darkness Shows the Stars since I missed it last week and it was totally different from Pushing the Limits, ensuring I wouldn't mix anything up. Then Pushing the Limits so totally blew my mind with it's awesome, I wasn't ready for another YA. So I read a romance novel.

A for effort?

This week's been bugging me. I'm not totally sure what I wanna do review-book wise. I have two things I have to read for reasons and that'll take up some time and do I want to just go up to Thursday since I'm leaving Friday? Can I already start committing to books to bring on vacation?

So, this list is more of a list of books I'm limiting myself to reading instead of a list of books I will do everything in my power to read, as well as a few of the books books I know I'll be bringing on vacation with me (though not all the books I'll be bringing/reading).

1.) Skylark by Meagan Spooner
2.) Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
3.) A World Away by Nancy Grossman
4.) Persuasion by Jane Austen
5.) Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
6.) Collision by Stefne Miller
7.) Supernaturally by Kiersten White
8.) Endlessly by Kiersten White
9.) It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han
10.) We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han
11.) The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
12.) The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
13.) Belles by Jen Calonita
14.) The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
15.) Over You by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus
16.) What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang
17.) Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

I'm also putting Code Name Verity, Paranormalcy, and any books I purchase later today as contenders, but not likely.

Beauty Queens, Persuasion, Belles, and A World Away are all beach bound, no doubt about it. A World Away may end up sneaking in to this week and Beauty Queens is a reread and I want to read it on the ride there so I can force it on my sister, who should be meeting up with us.

Beyond that, I'd really love your input. What do y'all think I should push to the top? Anything I left out that you find here or here you think I should read instead?
