Normally I would do this post a little bit later in the year, like July, but since time has lost all meaning and I already have a huge list of anticipated releases for the remaining half of the year, I figured why not. Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases for the Remainder of 2020”
No explanation needed, but I just gotta say this is such a fun post to write, and I definitely refer back to my 2019 posts a lot; it functions as a nice TBR. I’m only including books that have release dates and covers announced, and, just like I did for 2019, will probably post another post like this during the summer that covers all the other books that have been announced.
This is not an exhaustive list of all the books on my Goodreads TBR, just the ones I am most excited about, because otherwise this list would be obnoxiously long. Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases for 2020”
Last year, I did a post about my most anticipated releases of 2019. As I was perusing it I realized that a) I haven’t read half the books on the list even though they have either been released or I have ARCs and b) I really only talked about books that were coming out up until August, with the exception of one single book. There’s a bunch of new releases I’m looking forward to for the rest of the year, so why not talk about a whole other bunch of books I probably won’t read until like two years after their release date!Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases for the Remainder of 2019”
I thought I did a post like this for 2018, but apparently not (or I just can’t find it). Anyway, most people have been doing posts like this, and this week’s Top 5 Wednesday features this topic, so here’s a list of the books I am most looking forward to in 2019! Brace yourselves for a looooong post; I could not narrow it down to just five, so…yeah, long post.
I’ll post the title of the book along with a Goodreads link so you can easily add the book, followed by a lengthy Goodreads summary, then my thoughts, and then my thoughts on the cover, because we have some truly amazing covers in this list, and then we have some that are…truly hideous.

January was an incredible reading month for me! Eight books is kind of a record! My average per month is normally something like 4-6, at most, so I’m really proud of myself. I can’t take all the credit, though – most of these books were pretty fantastic, which of course made it easy to zip through them quickly.
There were only two outliers, and even those weren’t terrible! Children of Blood and Bone was disappointing and dragged on for quite a bit, but it was still fun. The Good Daughter, though not something I would reach for again, was nevertheless a page turner. All the other books were pretty amazing; some of them may even go on my “best of” list at the end of this year. January has set the standard high for this year, haha.
Right now I’m reading three books. First is Stalking Jack the Ripper, which is unfortunately not turning out to be as gripping as I had hoped. It’s also a little bit ridiculous. I literally just started Jay Kristoff’s Nevernight, and it’s very weird so I have no idea how I feel about it just yet. And in my effort to read non-fiction and also do research for my book, I’m reading Policing Egyptian Women: Sex, Law, and Medicine in Khedival Egypt which is just so fascinating, you guys. I’m learning so much.
In terms of TBR I’ve already gotten Red Sister out of the library. I also have soooooo many incredible ARCs, including The Queens of Innis Lear, Toil and Trouble, All Out, The Diminished, Ace of Shades, Circe, Freshwater, Girls Burn Bright, and Furyborn! I don’t even know where to begin! Help me out, y’all, have you read any of these ARCs and think there’s somewhere in particular I should start?
