May 1: Top Ten Books I’d Slay A (Metaphorical) Lion To Get Early
Anticipated releases are something that excite me greatly. There is no better feeling than getting your hands on a book that you have been waiting for for weeks, months, or years, and finally being able to dive into the world. This week’s topic contains my ten currently most anticipated books, some of which don’t even have a release date yet! *cries*
1. Lethal White by Robert Galbraith
This has been my single most anticipated release since I finished reading Career of Evil in October 2015. I simply cannot wait to see what happens with Robin and Cormoran, and where there next adventure takes them.
2. The Year of the Locust by Terry Hayes
The follow up to my favourite thriller of all time, I Am Pilgrim, has an ever-changing release date (and not in a good way). It feels as though I’ve been waiting for this novel forever, and at the time of writing this post, it is scheduled for release in October 2019. Urgh.
3. The Time Traveler’s Wife (sequel) by Audrey Niffenegger
When I met Audrey a little over two years ago at LBF 2016, she told me that she was intending on having the sequel to my favourite novel of all time ready for 2018 publication, but having not since seen any evidence, I’m not holding my breath just yet.
4. Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher
I love the entire Fletcher family, and have read books by both Gi and Tom as individual authors, so I’m excited to see how their debut collaboration compares. Plus the premise sounds incredible. And they are appearing at YALC in the summer, so I need my hands on this, stat.
5. Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Thorns and Roses remains one of my favourite books of all time, and despite the fact that I am now well behind on both that series and Throne of Glass, I’m looking forward to reading a standalone by the author.
6. City of Ghosts by V.E. Schwab
V.E. Schwab’s first middle grade novel sounds creepy and exciting; set in Edinburgh it centres around Cassidy, a young girl who can see ghosts, and her best friend just happens to be one. Chilling.
7. What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
Two of my favourite authors combine to write a novel? I’m sold. I want this book right this second, simple as that.
8. Save the Date by Morgan Matson
Having read a couple of Morgan Matson novels, I have concluded that they are perfect summer reading. The characters are always super cute and the plots are feel-good.
9. Meet Cute by Jennifer L. Armentrout and others
There’s little better in the summer than reading cute anthologies, and this volume sounds particularly adorable, and it has stories written by some of my favourite authors.
10. Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
Fortunately for me, this is released in the UK in two days time. I cannot wait to get my hands on this novel and discover what happens to the characters post-Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
