To Be Read Tuesday

So sorry that I have been slacking on my reading and reviewing.  I go through spells where my brain turns into  mush and my TBR suffers.  I think I'm good now.  I still have fourteen books on my TBR that I really need to get read by the middle of March.  There are tons of new books that I want to add to my list and other stuff I want to do on the blog, but I refuse to do a thing until I finish this list.  I'm currently reading Wither by Lauren Destefano (which I should have read last month), but as soon as I finish, here's what I'll be reading for this week.

Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
Bridget Duke is the uncontested ruler of her school. The meanest girl with the biggest secret insecurities.   And when new girl Anna Judge arrives, things start to fall apart for Bridget: friends don’t worship as attentively, teachers don’t fall for her wide-eyed “who me?” look, expulsion looms ahead and the one boy she’s always loved - Liam Ward - can barely even look at her anymore. 

When a desperate Bridget drives too fast and crashes her car, she ends up in limbo, facing everyone she’s wronged and walking a few uncomfortable miles in their shoes. Now she has only one chance to make a last impression.

Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul. 

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once. 

While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

I hear you. My TBR list just keeps getting longer. I have 3 books I have to read and review because of course I promised I would. But I keep bumping ahead other titles. Right now I'm reading Across the Universe and am really really enjoying it.
