I feel like I'm always talking about my TBR list and after looking it over I decided to share with you guys the top books I'm waiting for this year.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
The Grisha Trilogy is probably my favorite YA trilogy of all time. I love them so much it's hard to come up with the words to describe their absolute perfection. The books are never far from my mind or my finger tips. I find myself remembering and quoting out loud my favorite passages to this day. If you guys haven't checked it out, you need to right now. The fact that Six of Crows is written by Bardugo was enough to make me want it desperately but with the added bonus that it's set in the Grisha Universe just pushes my need over the edge. I'm sitting on pins and needles waiting for this one.
In the Beginning There Was Us by Ingrid Jonach
In my newly gifted copy of When the World was Flat and We were in Love I was able to read a sneak peak of this book. I wasn't sure what to expect but what I've read already has me interested. Jonach's as an author is definitely not getting the amount of attention she deserves. In this book I'm hoping to get a couple of cameo's of characters from When the World was Flat and We were in Love but I have to wait until April to find out.
Firewalker by Josephine Angelini
I had the fortune to get the ARC of Trial by Fire last year and I'm ready to move on to the sequel. Parallel Universes are just making their headway through the YA world, and I'm definitely onboard. There are so many questions I have that have been burning inside me since I finished it. Can't wait to embark on this new journey with Lily and Rowan.
The Heir by Kiera Cass
Isn't the cover of this book simply stunning? Just when we all thought that the story was over, Cass decides to give us an extension. The fact that this book is set 20 years after America and Maxon's wedding has made me extremely curious. I have no idea what to expect. Are we going to get even more sequels after this one? Is the book going to focus on just Maxon and America's daughter or do we get more of our favorite couple? So many questions that need answers!
Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
There is always a lot of buzz when it comes to Sarah J. Maas books and even though I'm coming late to the party in regards to her Throne of Glass series, I'm hoping to jump right in with everyone else when this one is published. I was able to read a short sample of it on Goodreads and it's made my need to gobble up all of Maas' available books as soon as possible.
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
This book was recommended to me by many people. I've read the teasers and a bunch of reviews. The writing and the plot sound great. Everything I've heard about it is positive. I've been looking high and low for an ARC on this one but so far no luck. Doesn't mean I'll quit looking though, I don't think I can hold out until March.
Frostfire by Amanda Hocking
Has anyone figured it out yet that I'm a huge sucker for gorgeous covers? This one is a feast for the eyes. It immediately gives you this feeling of fantasy and mystery. It's set in the Hocking's Trylle world and even though I haven't read those books, I'm still intrigued. If I get hooked on this one, I just might have to check out all of Hocking's other books from this setting.
Burn by Paula Weston
I fell in this love with this series to the point where I can't wait for it to even come out in my own country. Shipping charges be damned! As soon as these books become available in Australia, I order them. They are sexy, daring, and hilarious. I can't believe it's finally coming to an end, I'm not sure I'm ready for it. I have no doubt that it's going to end in the same way it began, with a bang.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I just got my hands on this baby the other day and boy does it have me excited. It was listed on Goodreads with the Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and that was enough to want me to get my hands on it. Who can say no to an epic fantasy set in a Rome-like world? I'd be shocked if you can find anyone.
Woven by Michael Jensen & David Powers King
I heard about all of the controversy surrounding this book so I decided to look it up on Goodreads. After reading the summary and some of the reviews of the book I became interested and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Thankfully I didn't have to read long and it is the next book I'm jumping into.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
The only reason this book doesn't make the above list is because I had the fortune to get the ARC of this book from Netgalley and have already read it. It's intense, unique, filled with action, and has a little bit of romance. What drew me to this book at first was it's stunning cover. It just mesmerized me, and after reading it I became further entranced. I highly recommend this one, you guys have to check it out!
The Winds of Winter (Song of Ice and Fire 6) by George R. R. Martin
I've been reading this series but I'm not quite caught up to this book yet. The books are amazing but because of all of the graphic and tragic details it's hard for me to rush through these books. Many a time have I had to walk away from the books to grieve a beloved character. Nonetheless, I'm curious about what this title means for the Starks. Hopefully I'll finally get caught up before this reaches it's publication date.
The Rose Society (The Young Elites Trilogy Book 2) by Marie Lu
This and all of the other books listed below this one are books that I have heard so much about but haven't had the chance/opportunity to be able to read them yet. They are all sequels to trilogies or series that I want to be apart of but since I haven't read the first of these trilogies/series I can't say I'm over the moon for them just yet. Everything I've heard about them are great and they are all highly recommended.
In the case of this book, I have received Marie Lu's Legend trilogy for Christmas and from the snippets I've seen of it and everything I've heard about all of her books, I'm dying to be a part of the of conversation! Maybe by the time that The Rose Society is published I'll be all caught up in Lu's work.
The description for Red Rising out of this world so I can only imagine that this is the same. It's been compared to many of my favorite books and Pierce Brown won the best Debut Goodreads Author award last year for the first in the trilogy. That's all I need to know to add this one to my TBR.
The Winner's Crime (The Remnant Chronicles 2) by Marie Rutoski
I requested the ARC of The Winner's Curse on Netgalley and I was unlucky in not getting it and it was the same for The Winner's Crime but that has not deterred me from wanting it. From the synopsis it sounds like a tragic romance, which is probably my favorite. I'm sure it's amazing, I definitely haven't heard otherwise. I'm a huge sucker for forbidden love and it looks like these books know my Achilles Heel. Hopefully I'll be able to get both of these books this year.
The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson
While I got many books of my Christmas wishlist, The Kiss of Deception didn't make under my tree. I've heard so many amazing things about this book and I hope that I can get my hands on both of these books soon just to see what all commotion is about!
What books are you guys looking forward to this year? Have you read the ones I've listed above? Are you also waiting for some of these? Let me know, I'd love to hear from you =)
