It’s the first of September and that means that the Hogwarts Express is ready to leave and that spring is finally upon us (despite it being grey and rainy outside today). The days are getting longer, the weather is finer and there are plenty of books to be read in the coming months. So I thought I would put together a list of books that are being published within the next three months that I really want to get my hands on (my bank account is going to be crying by the looks of this list).
It’s description as Downtown Abbey meets Cassandra Clare sold me completely on the premise. It sounds just like my cup of tea. Besides the cover is gorgeous. Don’t you just love the birds flying out of the teacup?
Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas – September 11th
I just finished read this and the third instalment in the Thorne of Glass series is nothing short of a brilliant emotional ride. A freaking awesome book is what it is. You get to find out what Celaena’s been up to and meet a whole host of new characters you will love. A must read!
I need to know what happens next for Cassie, Ben and the gang. The 5th wave was one of the best books I read last year. It's also one of the best alien invasion stories I’ve read. If we get taken over by aliens and it happens like the 5th Wave then we’re all massively screwed.
I needed this book in my hands like yesterday. I’m willing to make a sacrifice to the book gods. That’s how much I want this book. I need more Titus and Iolanthe, but mostly just Titus. If you haven’t read The Burning Sky yet then you’re missing out on such a unique story. It’s like the magic of Harry Potter meets She’s the Man but its so much more than you can possibly imagine.
The premise of this book just sounds so freaking cool. I mean a world with a world. Plus the blurbs of this book are hilarious.
This contemporary romance just sounds adorable and sweet. The kind that’s bound to leave a smile on your face.
“The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince . . . but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums” – How spellbinding does this book sound? It’s a dark fairytale that was inspired by The Nutcracker. Need I say more?
This book was inspired by Arabian Nights and is about a Jinni. It’s a different supernatural being, one that I haven’t read about in the past. It sounds fresh and exciting.
Marie Lu is one of my favourite authors. I loved the Legend Trilogy and can’t wait to read her new series, which is set in a renaissance time period. Plus it looks like it has plenty of bloodshed within its pages.
I have been waiting for this book for more than a couple of months. If I’m honest, I’ve been waiting for this book since I first heard about it. It’s a YA fantasy book that looks to be an epic sweeping tale. I just want it already.
If you haven’t read The Raven Boys yet, why haven’t you? I love this series and the third book just looks to be just as heartbreaking as the previous one. Two words: Blue and Gansey.
Compulsion byMartina Boone – October 28th
I’ve heard so many good things about Compulsion. It’s got a swoony romance and a gothic feel to it. Sounds like something right up my alley.
I will read anything by Julie Kagawa. She is an amazing author and her latest new series will be terrific. It’s about dragons living among humans and a secret society. If that didn’t sound cool enough there is already movie in the works.
Just look at the cover. Isn’t it beautiful? If the cover isn’t enough to convince you to pick it up than the premise should. It’s about a manhunt through parallel universes.
Disruption was one of the best YA books I have read this year. Maggie is such a great protagonist (great protagonist =badass). Plus there’s Quentin Mercer and great world building. I need to know what happens to Maggie after the first instalment.
What are you looking forward to reading in the coming months?
