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?

New Releases

May Releases

Today I am sharing with you the new releases for this month that I am excited about.

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.

New Releases

April 2017 Releases

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.

What books are you excited for this month?

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

January Releases 2017

Today I am here to bring you my round-up of all the books that are being released this month that I am interested in reading. I didn’t do a post in December as there were no new books released that I wanted to read but January is a very busy month.

 

wayfarer

Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken- I have been really looking forward to the sequel of Passenger. I really enjoyed Passenger and the book ended on such a cliffhanger. The writing in the first book was beautiful and I am hoping that this book will be even better. – 3rd January

freeks

Freeks by Amanda Hocking- I really enjoy Amanda’s books and this one sounds really interesting as it is about a circus. I really loved The Night Circus and I have been interested to read more books that have a similar setting. – 3rd January

frostblood

Frostblood by Elly Blake- This sounds very similar to Red Queen so I wasn’t sure if I was going to read it but I thought I would give it a go. Ruby is a Fireblood and she must hide her powers from the Frostbloods who are in charge. She ends up being captured and has to take part in a competition where Frostbloods and Firebloods fight against one another. a-quiet-kind-of-thunder

A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard- I was lucky enough to receive an arc of this and I really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the plot and I thought that the characters and the situations that they were in were very realistic. Look out for my review which I will be posting soon- 12th January

the-wicked-city

The Wicked City by Beatriz Williams- This book is set during the past and present. When Ella moves into a new house she is warned to stay out of the basement as people have reported strange noises. During the 1920s it was a speakeasy and people have said they can hear the noises from it. I am a huge fan of the 1920s and I enjoy reading any book that is set during that time. – 17th January

history-is-all-you-left-me

History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera- When Griffin’s ex-boyfriend dies he is overwhelmed with grief. I don’t know too much else about this but it has been getting a lot of really positive reviews. – 17th January

carve-the-mark

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth- This book has received a lot of negativity due to the way it portrays different ethnicities. This does put me off slightly but I am still interested to see how Veronica’s writing may have improved since the Divergent series. – 17th January

caraval

Caraval by Stephanie Garber- This is another book that sounds as if it may be similar to The Night Circus. Caraval is a game and two sisters become involved when one of them is kidnapped and the person who finds her wins the game. This book sounds like it is going to be amazing and I can’t wait to read it. – 31st January

traitor-to-the-throne

wires-and-nerve

Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer- I am not usually a fan of graphic novels but when I heard about this one I knew I would need to read it. This is set in the Lunar Chronicles world and follows Iko. I loved the Lunar Chronicles and any new book set in this world I need to read. – 31st January

by-your-side

By Your Side by Kasie West- This is a cute contemporary about a boy and a girl who get locked together in a library. This sounds like it is going to be a really fun read and I really enjoy a light hearted contemporary novel. – 31st January
