Future Read Friday #3

Future Read FridayThis is an original P4P meme that will highlight one lucky book each Friday that I have been wanting to read. It can be any book, any author, and any genre. There are so many books I want to get my hands on and I add books to my TBR list every day. Here, I will just be discussing the books that I am most excited about reading whether I have wanted to read it since I was a kid or it just came out this year.

slammedYay! for early twenties love stories that aren’t classified as New Adult or Erotica. I found this book awhile earlier, but have yet to find it at a used bookstore (which in my head has to mean that it is really good!), but when I get another Barnes and Noble gift-card, I am planning on picking it up. My best friend highly recommended it to me and I haven’t read any particularly awful reviews, so I am excited to read my second book by Colleen Hoover.

Slammed is a typical “neighbor romance” where troubled girl lives in one house and then moves in even more emotional boy and when they finally get together, well sparks fly of course. At first they make a great, intense couple, but then something happens that forces their relationship to an end. Between the secrets and passion pulling them together and apart, this read is said to be a roller-coaster.

Definitely my kind of book, especially with it making Goodreads “Best Book Boyfriends” list.

perfected

perfected_katejarvikbirchI don’t remember where I came across this book, probably a fellow book blog or Goodreads, but I was intrigued. I am normally not one for super out there dystopian novels (if that is what this is), but I was reeled in by the cover alone.

Perfected is about a world where some humans are bred to be household pets. This is a story about a girl who goes to live with a rich and powerful family to be their daughters “playmate”, but ends up falling for their son. But at some point, Ella (the pet girl), is kidnapped and pulled into a mysterious underground world far from her fabulous lifestyle. She has to make a choice and if she chooses wrong, death will be a fairytale compared to what’s in store for her.

I am not sure how I feel about the premise of people being pets, but it does have a love story and a bit of an adventure, so I am wanting to give it a shot.

defendingjacob

defendingjacob_williamlandayI love a good courtroom drama book and from what I hear, Defending Jacob by William Landay is just that. It came out at the beginning of 2012, but I just discovered it browsing through Barnes and Noble not too long ago. I have gone to buy it multiple times, but continue to get side-tracked and distracted– then I end up buying something else.

Defending Jacob is about a respected and upstanding man, Andy, who has a great job and a happy family. Well that is until his son his accused of murdering another classmate. Although Andy loves his son and wants to believe the best in him, he slowly finds out that he doesn’t know his son at all. As the case progresses, Andy will have to face some things he would rather just sweep under the rug. With his marriage falling apart and trying to understand the acts of his son, this book questions where your loyalties lie in a situation like this.

Needless to say this book sounds incredible to a law and order/family drama junkie like myself. One of these days I will get around to reading it!
