Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
I’m actually impressed I got this down to twelve books, because I ended up cutting out most of the debuts that I’ve already featured. I chose six books from authors I’ve previously read and six books from authors that are new to me (debut or non-debut). This was a hard list because my TBR-unreleased shelf on Goodreads is getting crazy.
Stars Above by Marissa Meyer | February | DUH I NEED THAT EPILOGUE RIGHT NOW. Who gets married?! It could reasonably any of them, but I’ll be hyped it if it’s Cinder and Kai. Not sure why, but I feel like they need to do it first.
When We Collided by Emery Lord | April | If I’m being totally honest, this is the number one book on this list. I just reaaaally need another Emery Lord book in my life right away. As usual I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things so far!
The Epidemic by Suzanne Young | April | That cliffhanger from the previous book definitely has me anxious for this one. I’m excited and nervous to see what happens next!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas | May | I know that I’m a SJM virgin compared to most bloggers, having only read ACOTAR until this point, but I am definitely excited for the next book in the series! Yet another cliffhanger.
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson | May | I honestly don’t even remember what this book is about, but I know I need it… because Morgan Matson! The cover reminds me of Since You’ve Been Gone and hopefully it’s just as good. (Of course Second Chance Summer is my favorite book by her, though!)
Summer Days and Summer Nights by Stephanie Perkins | June | I LOVED the Christmas anthology she helped put together, so I’m incredibly excited for this summery anthology. I always read books seasonally, so this will definitely be fun to read in June to kick off the warm weather season.
Once Upon a Kiss by Robin Palmer | January | A girl falls unconscious in 1986 and wakes up in 2016, where obviously everything has changed. It doesn’t sound like a simple coma-awakening though; I can’t really figure out if there’s a time travel / paranormal element to it? Can’t wait to find out!
It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick | January | The synopsis is very vague, but funny. It implies a wild weekend involving famous cousins, ex-best-friends, tattoos, and piercings. Sign me up.
The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan | March | I love the cover of this book – especially the typography. That’s what originally attracted me to it and every time I see it, I get more excited. I haven’t read a lot of cry-worthy YA lately, so I’m intrigued by the words “tragedy” and “heartbreaking” in this synopsis.
Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum | April | The idea of writing to someone anonymously makes me very happy and intrigued. I’ve heard there’s some crudeness in this one too, which I always appreciate.
Dreamology by Lucy Keating | April | The premise of this one also sounds awesome – a girl who dreams about a random boy, who then suddenly appears at her school… but he’s nothing like the dream version. GIMME. Also, that cover is adorable. Sorry not sorry.
No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista | April | Yet another cover-related reason, for the most part. Hot pink cursive = my shit. THEN I read the synopsis for the millionth time and scream for fake dating! One of my faaavorite tropes. Gimme x 2.
