TTT: Ten Most Anticipated Reads for the Second Half of the Year
Posted by Caitie F on June 14, 2016
I haven’t posted in forever, but today, I need a little joy in my life and talking about books i am excited about brings me a lot of joy! Love the awesome people at Broke and the Bookish for hosting!
This was a very, very easy topic. I already have most of these preordered!
1. NEVERNIGHT by Jay Kristoff
I’ll buy every book Jay ever writes, but this is probably the book I am most excited about. Just part of Jay’s description of this book includes “And was a school where, instead of learning magic and the true value of friendship, you learn to murder the shit out of people:” And there are smutty bits. *grabby hands* (also if you preorder the US version it will be signed so do that now)
2. CROOKED KINGDOM by Leigh Bardugo
SIX OF CROWS was one of my other favorites books of last year. I can’t wait.
3. THE MIDNIGHT STAR by Marie Lu
Marie is an insta-buy author for me and this series is brilliant. I don’t want it to end, but at the same time, I want it to come out now so i can read it.
4. GEMINA by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Duh. ILLUMINAE was my favorite book of last year. OF COURSE I am eagerly waiting for October.
5. A WORLD WITHOUT YOU by Beth Revis
I adore Beth’s writing and cannot wait to read her latest.
6. BOUND BY BLOOD AND SAND by Becky Allen
This is a debut and sounds incredible. I was sold by “Though revenge clouds her vision, she agrees to help if the kingdom’s slaves are freed. Then Elan’s father arrives. The ruler’s cruelty knows no limits. He is determined that the class system will not change—and that Jae will remain a slave forever.”
7. BLOOD FOR BLOOD by Ryan Graudin
I read the first book earlier this year and it blew me away!
8. STRANGE THE DREAMER by Laini Taylor
Her writing is just so amazing and this looks absolutely brilliant!
9. THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR by Nicola Yoon
EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING was one of my favorite books of 2015, so of course I need to read this one!
10. SUPERNOVA by C.A Higgins
LIGHTLESS was one of the best SF books I’ve ever read, so I am super excited for book two.
