Because I haven't been here for a while I thought I'd do a couple of random posts about books I can't wait to read, and other stuff, this random post is for the books that haven't been released yet...
Come Alive (EiT #7) by Karina Halle - June 23rd 2013 - So, some of you may have seen my post...last month..? Basically the post was me fangirling over Karina Halle and the Experiment in Terror series. If you haven't read it yet...do! I can understand if you don't think it's going to be your thing, but, hey, the first book is free for eBook devices and you PC and what not. It's definitely worth a read. I was also skeptical before I started the series, but I've read all 6 book this year and I need to read the novellas soon!
Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth - October 22nd 2013 - If you are an avid reader or blogger and you haven't heard of Veronica Roth's Divergent series yet...then you've probably been living under a rock. I read the first book 2 times within 12 months. Which isn't that rare for me. (Well, it has been lately, I need to get back on those rereads!) Divergent is a Dystopian trilogy. There's going to be a movie...March 14th 2014 is the release date I think. You're going to have to confirm that. It might be March 21st... A great series so far and I just cannot wait much longer for the last book!
Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins - September 2013 - I finally got around to reading Anna and the French Kiss last summer and...it was SQUEE WORTHY! So, the title is a little cheesy, as is the old cover, but I promise you it is not as cheesy as it seems! There is so much more to it! Lola and the Boy Next Door is the second book and I got that for Christmas (because it was £13.99 and I didn't want to pay that, though I totally would have anyway.) and it was probably the first book I read this year. I just could not keep the grin from my face as I read it! I was going through a Reader's Block phase too! These books are so amazing. If you like anything romance or... If you just like to read... Read this series!
Olivia Twisted by Vivi Barnes - November 5th 2013 - This is a début novel and also a retelling. This book is a retelling of Oliver Twist. It also has computer hacking and suspense and intrigue and such. So, does that sound awesome to you or what? I hope it isn't a disappointment like a few of my most anticipated have been recently.
Wild Cards (Wild Cards #1) by Simone Elkeles - September 24th 2013 - I finished reading the Perfect Chemistry series earlier this year. I did quite enjoy it, actually, I really enjoyed it. Even though each story seemed kind of repetitive. I'm actually really excited for this book/series too. I...there's just something about romance books that pulls me in. I don't care if some of what I read could and is sometimes considered trashy. As long as I enjoy it, what does it matter?
Romancing the Bookworm by Kate Evangelista - July 9th 2013 - Seriously, with that title, need I say more? So, I haven't read any Kate Evangelista books, but I really want to read this book. Like I said, a sucker for romance. Plus, it's a book about a bookworm. I love books about books and books about people that read books. I just love books...
Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron - October 3rd 2013 - Just read this description; Love can be a real monster.
Sixteen-year-old Boy’s never left home. When you’re the son of Frankenstein’s monster and the Bride, it’s tough to go out in public, unless you want to draw the attention of a torch-wielding mob. And since Boy and his family live in a secret enclave of monsters hidden under Times Square, it’s important they maintain a low profile.
Boy’s only interactions with the world are through the Internet, where he’s a hacker extraordinaire who can hide his hulking body and stitched-together face behind a layer of code. When conflict erupts at home, Boy runs away and embarks on a cross-country road trip with the granddaughters of Jekyll and Hyde, who introduce him to malls and diners, love and heartbreak. But no matter how far Boy runs, he can’t escape his demons—both literal and figurative—until he faces his family once more.
This hilarious, romantic, and wildly imaginative tale redefines what it means to be a monster—and a man.
It sound so freaking awesome and I just cannot wait to read it!
Vampire Mine (Alpha & Omega #3) by Aline Hunter - 2013 (unconfirmed) - Pretty sure this is the last book in the series. This series had me going through a shifter book phase earlier this year that I'm still not entirely out of. The amount of shifter books I have bought and added to my to read list because of this series is ridiculous. But, oh well. I really like this series and I have been waiting for this characters story since book one!
Crash Into You (Pushing the Limits #3) - November 26th 2013 - I had a chance to read Dare You To earlier this year and I loved it. I had an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I read Pushing the Limits sometimes last year. I loved both books actually. I seem to love YA books about characters that are going through a hard time... There is usually some romance involved too.
My Date From Hell (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy #2) by Tellulah Darling - October 31st 2013 - Tellulah Darling quickly because an instant favourite of mine last year when I read an ARC of Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls. I just loved it and I just loved her writing. It also helps that she is such a nice person (we've had a few convos on Goodreads and such.) Then, earlier this year I got a chance to read My Ex From Hell, the first book in this series, and I just fell in love with her unusually, quick paced writing all over again. Her books are such amazing easy reads. If you haven't already, give this woman a chance!
Unattainable (Undeniable #3) by Madeline Sheehan - Winter 2013/2014 - Biker boys anyone? What's that? *screams of "YES!" in the background* Fell in love with this series this year (again with this year!) The stories... They are so brilliant and so heartbreaking and so happy at times and wow... Just an overload of emotion. An amazing series (if you ask me) and also got me in a slight biker boy fix. Not that I didn't love leather and tattoos to begin with. Now it's just a stronger love.
Origin (Lux #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout - August 27th 2013 - So, this is another series I fell in love with this year. I mean, I read book three and holy mother of all cliffhangers! Seriously. I really cannot wait for this book. I need it, now!
Strange Fate (Night World #10) by L. J. Smith - Release date? Who the fuck knows any more! - Okay, so before I even think of picking up this book I'm going to have to reread the other 9 books, because seriously. It has been so, so long since I read them. 3 years maybe? I don't know. I need this book though, I don't remember the ending of the last book, but I'm pretty sure it was a cliffy. I remember thinking that the nine books were the entire series, but then I get throw with a cliffhanger and a book that was supposed to be out 10 years ago... Gee, thanks. But I do understand that the author had personal issues.
Daylighters (The Morganville Vampires #15) by Rachel Caine - November 5th 2013) - I am in dire need of this book. But I also don't want the series to be over. I read the first 10 books in 2011... I think. And I have been keeping up with it ever since. I might have been able to handle the pain if it ended at 12 books...but 15? I am so emotionally invested in these books that the last book is just going to be one entire cryfest, whether characters die or not. If you have not read this series...I definitely, 100%, without a single doubt recommend it! And soon!
- This list is in no particular order
- There are other books that I am highly anticipating this year and they aren't on this list because I didn't add all the book and because they weren't on my want-now list. Also because some of the books have been released already. And because I have ARCs for some of the books and so I'm not really wait to get my hands on them so much...
- What books are you highly anticipating this year? Are any of them on this list?
- This is possibly the longest post I have ever written and it is now 5AM, so I'm sorry if there are misspellings and things that don't make sense, but I don't have time to edit, I never really do edit anyway, and so I shall just publish it...
