I thought I was doing pretty well. I mean, I have a ton of posts organized for this week, which is amazing for me. Yet, I failed to realize that this exact topic is the theme for tomorrows TTT post. However, I'll continue this post anyways because of reasons!
Getting into the actual post...
Last year I was anticipating some new releases, much like I am this year. Most (pretty much all) were from some of my favorite authors. However, I failed epically as far as reading last night and thank the book gods I haven't gone and spoiled myself hardcore.
Enough of me rambling, let's get into the bookish humiliation that is my tbr pile...
First up we have:
Queen of Shadows by: Sarah J Maas
I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself for avoiding spoilers for this one. Maybe I'm avoiding it because I don't want to get destroyed by the feels but *shhh* no one needs to know that xD
Illuminae by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I got Illuminae for Christmas and I'm itching to start it! (Okay maybe not literally itching but... never mind) I love it when book are anything but average and Illuminae is definitely not average. It has a beautiful design and the inside is filled with messages (and pictures?) I may have picked this one up last year if I would have gotten my hands on it earlier.
The Rose Society by: Marie Lu
I read The Young Elites on a whim and ended up really enjoying it. However, in true Marie Lu fashion the book crushed me
a lot I'm still crying tbh a little bit. TRS isn't super prioritized in my tbr but I'm sure that once I get to it I'll be happy I picked it up... or crying because I picked it up.
The Wrath and the Dawn by: Renee Ahdieh
TWATD was a ton of people's favorite book of the year (which is a good solid reason why I need to read this book, in my mind) Not only do people love this book, it's also diverse! (...and I neeeed to read more diverse books this year since I failed miserably at it last year.) Plus, a retelling of Arabian nights? I'm sold.
Six of Crows by: Leigh Bardugo
I was completely OBSESSED with getting my hands on this book about 3 months ago.
I even found it in B&N 3 days early and started screaming and fangirling like a lunatic. In the end, I decided that it was a better decision to wait until I had read the Grisha trilogy before picking up this one.
(Also, go to a bookstore and take a moment to just admire this books beauty.)
Walk on Earth a Stranger by: Rae Carson
I was sooooo excited for this book. As in I requested it too many times
way too many times as in I'm embarrassed about the number of times I requested. I love Rae Carson. Not only are her books fantastic (go read the Girl of Fire and Thorn trilogy!!!) but she's also an amazing human. I got to go to a signing for this book *screeches* I really need to pick it up already.
Carry On by: Rainbow Rowell
I don't tend to like contemporaries... at all BUT I loved Fangirl. I was pretty flipping excited to discover that Rainbow Rowell had given life to Simon and Baz. Everything about this book sounds great (including the synopsis which made me laugh out loud.)
Not my biggest priority atm but I'll definitely pick up when I'm in the mood.
A Madness so Discreet by: Mindy McGinnis
This definitely wasn't a book I was anticipating all year long but once I heard about it I knew I needed it. (I actually won a giveaway for it :) After doing a Twitter chat with Mindy I've decided she's one of my favorite people ever.
Note: Not a huge priority but still happy I get to read it soonish.
Why not me? by: Mindy Kaling
What do I say about Mindy? She's fabulous and hilarious and her other book (Is Everyone hanging out without me?) was fantastic. So excited to dive into this one.
Maybe I'll save for a reading slump?
Do you still have to read any of these?
... or have you read any of these yet? (that's probably a yes xD)
Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!
