Top Ten Tuesdays was created by The Broke and Bookish, but is now hosted weekly by That Artsy Reader Girl and anyone is free to participate! This week’s topic is winter TBR. I’m really looking to start over on my Goodreads goal come January because I can lower it a little and not feel so rushed. Right now I’m reading quickly and reading a lot of graphic novels to help me catch up. There’s a lot of 2019 releases on this list, but there’s also some already-published novels I just haven’t gotten to. In addition, I’m thinking of starting a BookTube that focuses on reviewing book-to-movie adaptions. Alright, let’s go!
- King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo and The Wicked King by Holly Black
So I’ve been on a serious fiction kick lately. I’ve barely done any fantasy reading for some reason. There’s a lot of big name fantasy books being released here including the much-anticipated King of Scars. Nikolai was honestly the best part of Siege and Storm, hands down. Also, I’m excited to read The Wicked King when it comes out to see what happens next. I like that it was left on a cliffhanger, but like not really? I had to wait for so long for the sequel!!
- The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
The Kiss Quotient was such a life-giving read. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for Hoang’s newest book. I absolutely loved Stella and Michael. I know literally nothing about this book, but I already can’t wait for it!
- Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
I am absolutely ready for an East-Asian fantasy by an East-Asian author. I’m 100 percent here for this and can’t wait to learn about He’s world!
- Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I still haven’t read this book for some reason. I’ve picked it up at one point, and then after a bit, I put it back down. So maybe I just need to give it another chance when I can have some time to dedicate to it.
- Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim
I am completely entranced by the Chinese legend, The Cowherd and Weaver Girl. I use to read the picture book my mom bought for me when I was a kid often and I can’t wait to see it come to life in a YA book. It’s late 2019 (T_T) but it’ll be well worth the wait!
- Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book from my friend and I’m a huge sucker for romance X British.
- Middle Game by Seanan McGuire
I literally just heard about this book today, but I’m so excited about it already. Seanan McGuire is a staple author in SFF and the summary of this book and cover promises an epic adventure and discussion in its pages.
What books are you anticipating reading in the coming year? What else should I keep my eyes out for?
