Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green- I have mixed feelings about this book.

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao- This is an Asian retelling of the Evil Queen. I love retellings so I am really looking forward to this one.

Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de la Cruz- It may only be October but I am already talking about Christmas books. This is a Pride and Prejudice retelling set at Christmas.

September Releases 2017

I really want to get back into blogging since starting a full-time job I have really struggled to find time to read and blog but now that I have settled into my job I have built up a routine and I have been able to read more. I want to get back into blogging as it is something that I really enjoy. Today I thought I would share with you the September releases that I am excited about. I am trying not to buy a lot of new books at the moment but I have joined my local library which gets a lot of new books in so hopefully they will get some of these books in.

Tower of Dawn Final Cover

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas– I am still a book behind with this series as I am yet to read Empire of Storms but I am still excited for this book. This book is told from Chaol’s POV and was originally going to be a novella but Sarah turned it into a full novel. I am a little bit disappointed by the cover as it doesn’t really fit with the other books I am still interested in checking this out. – 5th September

Genuine Fraud

Genuine Fraud by E Lockhart- We Were Liars is an extremely popular book but it wasn’t to my taste but this book sounds really interesting. This is a mystery book that follows two characters who become really close friends. I don’t know too much about the plot but it sounds interesting and I am intrigued by the cover. – 5th September

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken– I really enjoyed Alexandra’s writing in the Passenger duology and I am interested to try more from her. In this book, Prosper discovers that he has a demon inside of him and he has got to break a curse. This is a middle-grade novel which is a genre I don’t usually read but this book sounds interesting and the cover is stunning. – 5th September

Warcross

Warcross by Marie Lu- Warcross is a game and when the main character hacks into the game she thinks she will be in trouble but is instead hired to uncover a security issue. I have heard this book being compared to Ready Player One which I really enjoyed so I am very interested to check this one out. 12th September

 

Little Fires Everywhere

Little Fire Everywhere by Celeste Ng- Firstly the cover of this book is gorgeous. Secondly, this sounds like my sort of book as it takes place in a suburb where all of the characters have secrets. I really enjoy reading this sort of thing so I can’t wait to check it out. -12th September

There's Someone Inside Your House

There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins- I have read Stephanie’s other novels and I am interested to read this one as she ventures into a new genre. This is marketed as a YA version of Scream which is a completely different genre to her usual contemporary novels. I can’t wait to see what this is like. -26th September

What books are you excited for this month?

New Releases

July Releases

Today I will be sharing with you all of the July releases I am excited about. This month is quite a quiet month in terms of new releases that I am excited about as I only have two books on my list.

How To Stop Time

How To Stop Time by Matt Haig–  Tom has been alive for centuries so he is always on the move changing his identity. He works as a history teacher. Due to his condition which means he does not age he can’t fall in love. This book sounds really interesting it sounds a bit like the film The Age of Adaline which I have just watched.

Because You Love To Hate Me

Because You Love To Hate Me Edited by Ameriie- If you watch Booktube you will know that Booktubers and authors have been paired up to write stories about villains. The Booktubers have given the authors prompts and have written essays to go before the stories. I am really looking forward to this book as it is a collection of really great authors.

What July releases are you excited for?

New Releases

June Releases

I really need to get back into blogging as I haven’t posted in a while. I know June is nearly over but I still want to share with you the books that I am interested in reading that came out this month.

Dividing Eden

Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau- This book follows two royals who were never meant to be on the throne but when the current king and heir are assassinated one of them must take on the responsibility of the crown. They have to take part in a trial in order to determine who will get the throne. This sounds like it is going to be a really interesting start to a series.

once-and-for-all

Once and For All by Sarah Dessen- This is going to be a light-hearted contemporary novel that follows the daughter of a wedding planner. I have had mixed experiences with Sarah’s books but this book sounds perfect for me.

The Circus

The Circus by Oliva Levez- I really enjoy books that take place at a circus. This story follows a girl that runs away to join the circus. I am hoping that this book will be really good as I love circus books.

The Lying Game

The Lying Game by Ruth Ware- I am still yet to read Ruth’s other books but this one really interests me. The story follows four women who were school friends and are reunited after a terrible event. They used to play a game called ‘The Lying Game’ and this may be linked to the terrible discovery on the beach. I like the sound of this book although the game does sounds very similar to Sara Shepard’s book with the same title. I am interested in checking this one out as it sounds like it is going to be very gripping.

What books do you want to check out that have been released this month?

May Releases

A Court of Wings and Ruin

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas 2nd May- Although I haven’t read the second book yet I am still excited for this book. I have just reread the 1st book and now I will be able to binge read the second and third book.

Into the Water

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins 2nd Water- After reading The Girl on the Train earlier this year I am looking forward to reading this new book from the author.

Odd Birds

Odd Birds by Ian Harding 2nd May- I am a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars so when I heard Ian Harding was bringing out a memoir I was very interested.

A King's Obsession

Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession by Alison Weir 16th May- I was lucky enough to receive a copy from Net Galley of this book and I am looking forward to reading it. I am a huge fan of historical fiction particularly set in the Tudor so I am excited to see what this book is like.

The Names They Gave Us

-The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord 16th May- I received a copy from Net Galley of this book. After reading When We Collided last year I was interested in trying another Emery Lord book, unfortunately, this was very disappointing.

Flame In The Mist

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh 16th May- A lot of people rave about The Wrath and the Dawn by this author but I am still yet to read it. This is the first book in a new fantasy series and I am looking forward to reading this.

lord-of-shadows

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare 23rd May- I loved Lady Midnight and I have been eagerly awaiting this release. I can’t wait to see how Cassandra Clare moves the story on from the last book.

One of Us Is Lying

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus 30th May- This was another book that I read through Net Galley. This is a YA mystery which has similarities to Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl. I did enjoy this but I thought it was a little predictable.

royal-bastards

Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts 30th May- This is a new book in a YA fantasy series. It follows the illegitimate royal children and their journey to prevent a civil war. This is a debut novel and I am looking forward to checking it out.

This month is really quiet in terms of book releases. There are only 3 books that I am interested in checking out this month.

Perfect

Perfect by Cecelia Ahern- I really enjoyed reading Flawed last year and I am excited for the sequel. Flawed is a YA dystopian set in a world where everyone has to be perfect and if they aren’t they are branded as Flawed. I believe that this is going to be a duology so I am excited to see how the story will be wrapped up. -4th

Spindle Fire

Spindle by Lexa Hillyer- This is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I am a huge fan of retellings so when I heard about this I added it straight to my TBR. Aurora’s sister Isabelle has to search for someone to wake Aurora from the sleeping curse. – 11th

Missing

Missing by Kelley Armstrong- I am a huge fan of Kelley Armstrong’s books so when I saw that she had a new book coming out I was really excited. This is a YA mystery set in a small town that the main character can’t wait to leave. She thinks that all the teens leave the town but when she finds a dead body she starts to believe that people haven’t left but gone missing. I don’t read too many mysteries so I am looking forward to checking this out.

This is the conclusion to The Sin Eater’s Daughter trilogy and I am really excited to see how the story is going to be wrapped up.

seven-days-of-you

Seven Days Of You by Cecilia Vinesse- This is a contemporary set in Tokyo. I haven’t read any books that are set in Tokyo so that really interests me. It sounds like it is going to be a cute contemporary. – 7th March
