Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies.  Young woman has a dark past even she doesn’t know about? 2 mysterious strangers she is drawn to? Sounds like sexy hotness galore!
2.  Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey. Another dark love triangle. Where can it go wrong?
3. Dearly Departed by Lia Habel. A young woman is kidnapped by a troop of zombies and ends up falling in love with one of them. Very different, I’d say. Sort of reminds me of Warm Bodies which I enjoyed.
4. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Sounds like a good old-fashioned ‘girl has a secret crush on the boy next door.’
5. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. True love as felt by 2 strangers on a plane. Better than snakes, right?

6. Amplified by Tara Kelly. 17 year old girl leaves everything she knows and moves away to live in a beach house with 3 boys and sing in their rock band. Sounds delicious.

The rest have already been released but are still on my tbr list:
7. Dreamland by Sarah Dessen. Sounds like an excellent real take on young girls in violent relationships, both how they got there and why they stay. It’s gotten excellent reviews and I am looking forward to reading it.
8. The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. funny, heartbreaking and romantic, with great reviews. What more could you ask for?
9. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. Sounds like a great premise and promises lots of romance.
10.Birthmarked by Caragh O’Brien. The token dystopian book for the list. Sounds unique and has gotten great reviews.
