This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here.The second half of 2015 is fast approaching, which means MANY MORE AMAZING BOOKS are about to hit the shelves. Are we ready for the September-October onslaught? YEAH BUT NO BUT I DON’T KNOW. I’m personally not quite sure my feels can handle it.
1. Winter by Marissa Meyer: PROBABLY MY FAVORITE SCI-FI SERIES OF ALL TIME IS ENDING. (I mean aside from The Hunger Games asdfjkl; idek) I’m scared and excited and 800 pages of gloriousness???? I will devour this the instant it’s in my hands, locking myself up Harry Potter style.
2. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas: EEEEEEEEEEEE. This doesn’t need explanation, right?
3. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: This book is obviously going to be a SUPER BIG DEAL, with a totally new kind of storytelling and tons of illustrations and a unique, intense story. But I will be staying FAR away from the hype, because I think it’s already reaching over-hyped levels.
4. The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas: THE FEELS TIDAL WAVE WILL SOON BE FELT AND I CANNOT WAIT. Yes, I already have this on my e-reader, and I’m just waiting for enough time to binge reread the first two books and continue on to this conclusion.
5. The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May: I’m nervous because this book already got pushed back once, from September to November. I NEED this to come out this year. I neeeeeed to be saved from that cliffhanger. I neeeeeeed more of this amazing series.
6. Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally: CONTEMPORARY AWESOMENESS WITH A COUNTRY MUSIC ARTIST LOVE INTEREST AND UNDOUBTEDLY AWESOME CHARACTERS FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS, HELL YES.
7. The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz: Hook’s Revenge was one of my absolute FAVORITE books last year, so I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel. The narrator of these books is HILARIOUS and it’s just awesome adventures with such a fierce main character. Perfection as far as middle grade goes.
8. Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis: I thought Stitching Snow was EXCELLENT. I’m rather a positive black sheep about it, but I loved Lewis’s sci-fi skills and the way she adapted the fairy tale was super fun to me. The characters were brilliant. Though this is not a sequel but a standalone based on a different fairy tale, I’m pretty damn sure I’m gonna like it.
9. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: Duh? I think everyone who has read the Grisha series is excited for this. I’m curious how different it’ll be / related to the original series, but I am also staying away from the hype for this one. (I’ve already muted it on Tweetdeck.)
10. Calvin by Martine Leavitt: SCHIZOPHRENIC TEEN THINKS HIS LIFE IS TIED TO THE CALVIN & HOBBES COMICS. I loved Made You Up, so I’m so damn excited about this one. FINGERS CROSSED it’s just as feelstastic.
