Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome people over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Today’s theme is all about my ten most anticipated releases for the rest of 2015.
Modern day Romeo & Juliet featuring traveling performers and…magic? From the cover alone, I could tell this will be a very captivating read for me.
A high-concept, fantastical espionage novel set in a world where dreams are the ultimate form of political intelligence. These bolded quotes sealed the deal for me. And there’s something about that cover that screams EPIC.
I think the first time I read the synopsis for this book, my jaw dropped. Both literally and figuratively.
What I loved about THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE is Sales’ impressive ability to write teen characters that you can relate with so well. Not all authors can make me identify with their characters. So I’m hoping I get to see another glimpse of my life in her new book. Or just enjoy it for what it is.
Do I really?
My inner history nerd is just so freaking excited for this book. It has all the ingredients I could ever want in a historical fiction novel: rising empires, royalties and mythology, and Alexander the Great.
I don’t know why but I always find myself drawn to these sort of forbidden situation-esque novels. Like student/teacher relationships.
It’s by Leigh Bardugo. It’s set in the Grishaverse. Kaz Brekker.
I read the first line – literally, the first sentence – for this book and I was immediately hooked. I’m constantly on the lookout for darker and gothic YA like MONSTROUS BEAUTY and THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER, so I was really pleased when I found out this was a Frankenstein retelling.
I remember as a kid I was so obsessed with the concept of pen pals that I practically begged for my mom to find me one (no such luck). And I was jumping for joy when I found out Cassie Shine was writing a pen pal story! Guys. I’m going to hype this book so much, no kidding.
what books are you waiting for this 2015?
