Top Ten Tuesday is an absolutely wonderful bookish tag which involves making lists(!) of books(!), and is hosted by fabulous blog The Broke and the Bookish.
Unsurprisingly, I am in love with this topic. (And I already know it’s going to lead me to adding plenty of books to my tbr once I start visiting other blogs). And let’s be honest, there are so many exciting books coming out so there was no way I was going with only ten. So there is a slight risk of your tbr exploding if you read on. But hey, don’t blame me!
- The Names They Gave Us // Books about teenagers struggling with their faith aren’t particularly common in YA, so I can’t wait to read this.
- Dividing Eden // Twins fighting for the throne – count me in!
- Song of the Current // PIRATES
- Our Dark Duet // It’s V. E. Schwab, what more do you need to know?
- Roar // Storm magic + princesses + storm hunters
- Ash and Quill // I always forget how much I love this series until a new book comes out, and then I get excited about libraries and friendship all over again
- The Library of Fates // So it’s about Indian folkore, so hopefully it’ll be fantastic (even though I’m not a massive fan of the cover…)
- Lucky in Love // Kasie West writes the cutest contemporary books, and this one looks lovely
- Alex, Approximately // Again, another summery contemporary book which looks like so much fun
- The Build-Up Season // The synopsis is already kind of heart-breaking…
- The Hearts We Sold // Teenagers selling their hearts in deals with demons – I’m intrigued
- Wicked Like Wildfire // Forbidden magic, forbidden love, and wicked curses
- Wonder Woman: Warbringer // A book about Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo(!!) – the perfect combination
a.k.a the month I go broke
- Tower of Dawn // I’m not sure I even want an entire book about Chaol (also it’ll ruin the pattern of Aelin and her pretty dresses on the covers), but….. I’m curious
- Even The Darkest Stars // It’s about explorers and climbing and maps, which I’m pretty sure is the book I never knew I needed
- They Both Die At The End // Is it possible to be in love with a title? Because this one is fantastic.
- Girls Made Of Snow And Glass // I cannot resist a fairytale retelling, and this Snow White retelling sounds so good
- Things A Bright Girl Can Do // SUFFRAGETTES!! Also historical fiction!! And it has no cover yet! But it sounds like it could be one of my favourites this year!
- Jane, Unlimited // I was a big fan of Kristin Cashore’s Graceling, and although this looks entirely different, I’m still really excited
- Before She Ignites // A fantasy book about (a) mental health, and (b) dragons – give it to me now!
- Starfish // Another contemporary, but this one has a half-Japanese, half-American protaganist who suffers from social anxiety
- The Language of Thorns // Why hello again, Leigh Bardugo!
- There’s Someone Inside Your House // Firstly, that title is super creepy, and secondly, I don’t think this is going to be anything like Anna and the French Kiss
- The Ship of the Dead // Rick Riordan is an auto-buy author for me, and I can’t wait for more adventures with Magnus Chase
- Wild Beauty // Magical gardeners who make people disappear if they love them too much
- That Inevitable Victorian Thing // A world where the US never existed? Tea parties and country dances? Also Victorians? And a perfect cover? This sounds too good.
- Forest of a Thousand Lanterns // I saw the words “East Asian fantasy” and knew I had to read it
- All The Crooked Saints // A stand alone Maggie Stiefvater book – it’s gonna be great
- Renegades // MARISSA MEYER!
- The Becoming of Noah Shaw // I loved the Mara Dyer books, so hopefully this new series will be just as good
Based on this list, I’ll have no money by the end of the summer – but that’s just typical bookworm problems, right? And also I need some December recommendations! I don’t seem to have any on my wishlist, so which December books are you looking forward to? Let me know in the comments!
