Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we get to make bookish lists!!
This week’s topic: 2017 Books I’m Excited For!
As you can see, I am super excited for a lot of “next-in-a-series” reads!
And really, how could I not be?! Have you started any of these?! I am DYING over here!!
I guess technically, I did not need to include The Song Rising, since I already have an ARC,
BUT I chose my top ten because they were the first ten that came to mind!!
And yes, all but one are YA…
BUT it’s what I am into right now, okay?!
It isn’t my fault that none of my non-young adult authors are doing anything good right now!!!
I am looking at you, Dean Koontz!!!
Sarah J Maas has THREE books coming out this year, A Court of Wings and Ruin – which I guessed the name of in advance and won a giveaway! – the sixth (and final?) book in her Throne of Glass series, and a novella which takes place in said Throne of Glass world! So I cheated and used the one picture for both ToG books! Hehehe
I only discovered SJM in 2016, thanks to the bookstagram community, and I basically spent the summer inhaling all of her books, culminating in the release of the fifth ToG book, Empire of Storms.
The Last of August is the second in the Charlotte Holmes series of Sherlock Holmes spin offs.
And I am OBSESSED with Sherlock Holmes.
No. Not Benedict Cumberbatch’s Holmes… The character Sherlock Holmes from the tales spun by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle! And just about all of the spin offs EXCEPT Benedict’s. But more on that some other time!
The End of Oz is the fourth and final book in its series – and I have not even started the series!!
Why than is this on the list, you ask?!
Because my list of “in process” book series’ I am reading is Too. Damn. LONG. I will read this series when I can read it in full!! *shakes fist*
Let’s just start with the most obvious “in need of explanation” book – The Canadaland Guide to Canada – Published in America by Jesse Brown.
Yes, that is Drake on the cover. Yes, he is loving on a moose.
Yes, I am Canadian.
I am dying to read this book! It is going to HILARIOUS!!! I genuinely love with Americans make fun of Canadians! (of course, as long as it is meant in good fun… words can hurt)
With all of the “I’m moving to Canada” opinions that have popped up since Trump won, this book is going to be fantastic!! And OH YES, I will definitely post a review here ASAP!!!
Because You Love to Hate Me is yet another collection of short stories by a bunch of YA authors who’s books are slaying!! Why would anyone not want to buy ONE book with a bunch of stories they would willingly buy as individual books?! Honesly, this book just saves me money.
Strange the Dreamer, and Carve the Mark are standalone books that sound like they are going to be totally incredible!!! Yes, I know there is some controversy around Carve the Mark (and if you don’t know, I am not the person to ask for information about it) but I do not allow my opinion to be swayed by chatter – I form my own.
And finally, Flame in the Mist.
Remember earlier when I said I was pumped for the fourth Oz book because I didn’t want to throw myself down the bottomless put of despair that is being mid-incomplete series?!?! (I am paraphrasing!)
Well…. I hate myself for wanting to read this book… and I refuse to discuss it any longer!!! (LOL)
Go forth and read!
