TBR list (Top Ten Tuesday)

Hello! So, I was in Waterstones at the weekend (how I love that place) and I tortured myself by making a list of books I *need*.
1. The Testing - Joelle Charbonneau. Seriously, I might die if I don't get this one soon. I read 86 pages of it in Waterstones at the weekend (thanks to the staff for not kicking me out - I'll buy it when I can, I promise.) and I'm in love.
2. Death Cure -James Dashner.
3. Nineteen Minutes - Jodi Picoult. Bought this for €3.99 on Saturday, enjoying it so far.
4. Breathe -Sarah Crossan. Intriguing blurb, sounds similar to Pure by Julianna Baggott.
5. You Against Me - Jenny Downham.
6. The Hit - Melvin Burgess.
7. Across the Universe - Beth Revis.
8. iBoy - Kevin Brooks.
9. Thumped - Megan McCafferty.
10. Fuse -Julianna Baggott. I actually got this one for Christmas but haven't got around to reading it yet.
11. The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness.
12. A Gathering Light - Jennifer Donnelly.
13. Delirium - Lauren Oliver.
14. The Mad Scientist's Daughter - Cassandra Rose Clarke.
15. Dune - Frank Herbert.
16. Days of Blood and Starlight - Laini Taylor.
17. Skulduggery Pleasant: Last Stand of Dead Men - Derek Landy

*TBR = To Be Read. 

(This post was originally published on the 11th of March 2014, but I've rescheduled it for the 18th to coincide with The Broke and the Bookish theme for today).

Cover Reveal - Delete by Kim Curran

Hi everyone!

Okay,  so you all know how much I enjoyed Control by Kim Curran (if not, take a look at my review). One thing I really liked was the cover for control. Today at 3pm GMT the cover for the third Scott Tyler book, Delete is released. So here you go.

(By the way, I totally did not get the whole Shift + Control + Delete thing until now).

How cool is that? Well done to everyone behind the series! I still think Control is my favourite cover of the three (that perspective is just too cool), but they work well together.

Delete will be published in August 2014, and I'll post a review when I get it to see where it goes from Control. I'd better re-read Control, actually, so I can get the details of this one.

Coming up soon, a Water for Elephants Review.

Until then,
