There are so many books coming out in the next couple weeks that I feel like I’m drowning in books. I made the mistake of putting several (*coughs* 12 *coughs*) books on hold from the library so I would be the first to get them when they released. Well, a month later, I’ve realized that most of them are coming out around the same time, so I’m going to have three, four, maybe even five to read within a two-week period (and then hope and pray that nobody puts a hold on them so I can renew). *gulp* Despite this overwhelming feeling, I’m still stoked to read a lot of various titles being released between now and November. Here are the books I’m most excited to read.
(This prompt is for this week’s Top Ten Tuesdays: Top Ten Books on Your Fall TBR List.)
Ghostly Echoes by William Ritter: I’ve been waiting a whole year to read this book. You might be wondering why. I purchased the first book in this series, Jackaby, in paperback without realizing there was more coming and that it would take a year after each release for the books to come out in paperback. So in order to please my book OCD, I have to wait to purchase the paperback copy (because books in a series need to match). And I don’t want to just read the book from the library and purchase later. What’s the point then?
Warcross by Marie Lu: I loved Legend by Marie Lu and while I never finished The Young Elites trilogy (oops), I’m looking forward to Warcross. A science-fiction story about hacking, video games, and bounty hunters… and it’s set in Tokyo? I need it now.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng: I read Celeste Ng’s first book, Everything I Never Told You, for school and it was so good that I vowed to read anything else this lady writes. I honestly have no idea what the plot of this book is, but I have it checked out from the library already.
Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor: Like Ghostly Echoes, I’ve been waiting a while to read Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor. This is a side story/extra novella about characters from The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. Up until this point, it’s only been available as an e-book and I conveniently forget to find a copy from the library and read it on my phone. But now it’s being released as a hardback, and I’m excited to finally read it because heyyyy favorite character alert.
Invictus by Ryan Graudin: I’m weak for science-fiction and time travel stories. This book promises everything I love (history plus time travel plus tension plus excitement). I honestly thought it was set in outer space until I finally read the synopsis, but I don’t even care because that synopsis sounds so much better than I originally imagined.
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson: I don’t remember how I heard about this book, but high fantasy that involves fair folk, ancient power, and fun arts and crafts sounds like a blast.
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo: Anything related to the Grishverse is high on my list of books to read. This one in particular is interesting because it’s a collection of short stories, some that have been released previously that I never read and some that are new, and it includes illustrations! I love books with illustrations.
The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan: This is the third and final book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series and I need it immediately. I will basically read anything by Rick Riordan, and I especially need this one because the ending of the previous book was so freaking excited I was screaming for days. (Figuratively, of course, because that would hurt my throat.) Ahhhh!
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater: After reading The Scorpio Races, I will give any Stiefvater book a chance (despite that The Raven King disappointed me). This one promises owls and rock n roll and diverse characters, so I’m already in love.
Renegades by Marissa Meyer: Superheroes plus Marissa Meyer? Sign me up. I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book since I first heard about it well over a year ago. I need it.
In addition to these books and several others I have, I want to read several classic spooky stories that I haven’t read yet, such as Dracula, Sleepy Hollow, and Edgar Allan Poe stories.
