The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness: I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. It’s so smart and funny, but also sad and heartbreaking. I had so many feelings. And I love its depiction of OCD because damn. Ness is probably turning out to be one of my favorite authors.
The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan: I was the tiniest bit scared of this book, after I didn’t completely love the last Riordan series, but I got to read an ARC and this was SO FUN. It’s back to a first person POV, with tons of humor and lots of interesting Norse mythology stuff. Can’t wait to see where the series goes next!
Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis: EEEE! I absolutely adored Stitching Snow last year. I was completely charmed by Lewis’s creative sci-fi twists on Snow White, so I can’t wait to see what she does with this fairy tale. Also: THIS COVER. LOVE ♥ (Note: these are standalones.)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: The Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling: DUDES. ASDFJKL; I’m constantly going back and forth on whether to pre-order this. I mean, do I need a THIRD copy of this book? But then again, it is illustrated. Also expensive. THIS IS TOO HARD. #booknerdproblems (
Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith: Spying – through – dreams. This concept sounds suuuper intriguing, so I’m definitely keeping my eyes peeled for reviews.
The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas: I’ve absolutely adored this series from start to finish. It’s fun, the characters are OH SO charming, and the ship is amaaaazing. This series finale did NOT disappoint.
Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix: Historical fantasy with genderbending!!! Also, I haven’t read Garth Nix before, so I’m really excited to change that. I hope it works out for me!
First & Then by Emma Mills: I’ve heard this is basically Friday Night Lights meets Pride & Prejudice. Though I haven’t watched Friday Night Lights (yet), I love sports romances, and I looooove Pride & Prejudice. Plus I have it on good authority this is super adorbs. I like the adorbs.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: I’ve been dodging the hype for ages now, but it’s ALMOST HERE. Please keep your hype away from me and let me enjoy this in peace ♥
Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown: Teenage spy in World War I, yes yes, I’m excited. Plus, she looks so awesome on that cover.
Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall: I thought A Little Something Different was totally adorable last year, so I’m excited to read something else from Sandy Hall. Let’s see how swoony and fluffy she writes when she doesn’t have that 14 POV concept to fall back on.
