Hi all! I hope you’ve had a great week, mine has been kind of stressful as I’ve been packing all of my stuff up in order to move home from Uni for the summer, but as of yesterday it’s finally done! I still have another few days here in Scotland, but it will be nice to be able to relax and enjoy them without having to worry about packing! Anyway, I’m back this week with another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is about my Top Ten Anticipated Reads of The Rest of 2017, there are so many amazing books out this year that I can’t wait for, but these are the ones that I’m most excited for (I’m putting them in release order, not necessarily excitement order):
- Resurrection-Derek Landy-1st June
TWO MORE DAYS! TWO MORE DAYS TILL NEW SKULDUGGERY. It’s been three years since the last Skulduggery adventure, and I’m so excited that we’re getting more. Most of my teen years were spent with Skulduggery and I cannot wait to see what he and Val get up to in this new book!
2. Our Dark Duet-Victoria Schwab-13th June
I wasn’t the biggest fan of This Savage Song, the first book in Victoria Schwab’s Verity duology, but I think this second book definitely has potential to be better considering how the first book ended.
3. Ash and Quill-Rachel Caine-11th July
I love the unique world that Caine has created in the Great Library series, it’s such a brilliant concept and despite some of my problems with her writing style and pacing, I love the world and characters enough to still be excited about this one. The last book ended on a huge cliffhanger, so I can’t wait to see what Jess and the gang get up to in this one!
4. The Last Magician-Lisa Maxwell-18th July
This one sounds so good! I like the idea of two alternate Manhattans, one with magic and one without and the 1900’s setting for the old New York sounds amazing, I love books that have period drama in them and period drama + magic pretty much equals a winner for me.
5. Daughter of The Burning City-Amanda Foody-25th July
I am so excited for this one! A travelling circus? A girl who creates illusions that have distinct personalities? Murder? It all screams “this book should be read by Jo” and I cannot wait!
6. Mask of Shadows-Linsey Miller-5th September
I’ve seen mixed early reviews of this one, but I’m still excited for it. I haven’t read many books with gender fluid main characters and basically any blurb that says “assassin” gets me very excited, so I think this one has the potential to be very good.
7. Tower of Dawn-Sarah J Maas-5th September
I mean do I wish we were getting the last Throne of Glass book this year instead of this? Yup. However I’m so excited to get to see the Southern Continent, having heard so much about it over the course of the books. I’m not a huge fan of Chaol, but I love Sarah J Maas’ books and will read anything that she puts out there!
8. The Ship of The Dead (Magnus Chase #3)-Rick Riordan-3rd October
PERCY’S GONNA BE BACK! AND ANNABETH! We get Percabeth! Okay in all seriousness, they aren’t the only reasons why I’m incredibly excited about this book. I can’t wait to see Magnus and Percy meet, I’m so excited to see more of Alex Fierro and I’m just really excited to see how this series ends.
9. All The Crooked Saints-Maggie Stiefvater-10th October
I loved The Raven Cycle and I can’t wait to see what Maggie Stiefvater’s newest book is like. It sounds magical and weird and wonderful, and I’m hoping that I will love it just as much as I loved The Raven Cycle.
10. Chainbreaker (Timekeeper #2)-Tara Sim-7th November
I absolutely loved Timekeeper when I read it last year and I’m so excited to see more of Danny and Colton. It sounds like this book is going to take place in India as well, which I’m super excited about because a) it’s a setting I haven’t really read much about and b) the author is half Indian herself so I’m sure she’s going to do it very well.
I’m going to stick to just ten this week as these are the ones that I’m most excited about. What new releases are you looking forward to over the next six months? Do we share any? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s list is 10 Books From X Genre That I’ve recently added to my TBR List, so I’ll be sharing the 10 Fantasy Books that I’ve added to my TBR recently. I actually haven’t been adding as many books recently (I know, shocker!) so this might be a little difficult but I’ll try! In the meantime, I have a few posts planned for the next few days, so stay tuned!
