This is a weekly tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s challenge is Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR!
I’m going to start with unreleased books I have pre-ordered, then unreleased books I have ARCs of, and then books that are already out which I plan to read this winter! I’m trying a new layout for my T10T posts, so let me know what you guys think!
1. The Cruel Prince – Holly Black
I haven’t read a Holly Black book in many years (despite owning several unread releases from her), but this book sounds so good that I had to pre-order it a few months ago. I just know I’ll be moving it to the very top of my TBR the moment it arrives!
Unreleased, pre-ordered; releases 01.02.18
2. Reign of the Fallen – Sarah Glenn Marsh
At risk of oversimplification, this is a queer zombie book. Need I say more? I’ve barely managed to force myself to hold back on picking this one up so far, and if I end up with any room leftover in my December TBR, this will be added on.
Unreleased, ARC; releases 01.23.18
3. Everless – Sara Holland
While the idea of time being used as currency may not be brand new, it is definitely a take I don’t see frequently, and I’ve heard so many rave reviews about this book! *December TBR*
Unreleased, ARC; releases 01.02.18
4. Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi
This looks to be an incredible, diverse, complex YA fantasy. I’m told the world-building in it is positively exquisite, and knowing how highly sought-after this book is, I felt so incredibly privileged when my NetGalley “wish” was granted!
Unreleased, ARC; releases 03.06.18
5. Miles Away From You – A.B. Rutledge
I have a running joke lately with a few friends: I don’t reach for contemporary anymore unless it’s queer or sad AF. Well, lovelies, this one is both! It’s a queer contemporary about a young man grieving the loss of his trans girlfriend, and I have a strong suspicion that it will wreck me, but for some reason I’m just excited beyond words to start it. *December TBR*
Unreleased, ARC; releases 03.20.18
6. Beyond a Darkened Shore – Jessica Leake
I’m such a sucker for mythology-inspired fantasy novels, especially when they’re high fantasy types with lots of world-building, which I’m told this book does well. Plus, crows are a big feature, and, you know, black birds seem to be my aesthetic in my YA reading life.
Unreleased, ARC; releases 04.10.18
7. Devils Unto Dust – Emma Berquist
I. Freaking. Love. Infection. Tropes! This is a YA horror-meets-western title and I just know it’s going to be yucky and wonderful and fun.
Unreleased, ARC; releases 04.10.18
8. Mud Vein – Tarryn Fisher
This will be my first book by Tarryn Fisher, and I’m so eager to dive right in. Sweet Melanie sent me a copy of this book for my birthday back in October, and right after opening it, I sat down to read the first chapter and was immediately hooked. *December TBR*
9. The Assassin’s Blade – Sarah J. Maas
The time has finally come… I’m going to start the Throne of Glass series! *cheering in distance* I adore the ACOTAR series (so much that I’m restarting it for the third time next month), so I figured it was high time I try her other series, too (especially after owning the entire set in hardbacks since January, besides TOD, which I picked up on its release day… #noregrets). *December TBR*
10. The Raven King – Maggie Stiefvater
I’m simultaneously so excited and so sad to see this series draw to a close, but I have loved every step of the way so far, and I know I’m going to love the final book, too. I only hope that Maggie doesn’t break my heart too badly. *December TBR*
