I’ve forgotten to join in with Lucy’s meme for a while, so here’s a very belated #2!
And, because this was a last-minute write up, it’s a very random theme-
There are LOADS of books that I’m eagerly awaiting for. I probably can’t fit them in a whole post, but here’s my top five-jumping-up-and-down-on-the-spot-impatiently-waiting-for-books:
#1- Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Although it doesn’t really sound the same as the last two titles, Divergent and Insurgent, it still looks amazing. I enjoyed Divergent so much, and it’s a close contender with The Hunger Games, my favourite series. Insurgent I really liked, but I think it could have been a bit less wild. It’s quite frantic in my opinion compared to the first book of the series. However, I really really really want to see how the trilogy ends, though I really don’t want it to finish. I love Tris and Four too much! And the future Chicago setting is so cool… I just wanna live there, in Dauntless.
Allegiant is released in November this year. Woo!
#2- City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Yay!! I actually thought that the fifth installment of the TMI series, City of Lost Souls, was the last one. And then Lucy@ Queen of Contemporary told me it wasn’t. So YAAAAY. More Jace! More Clary! More MAGNUS!! I only discovered The Mortal Instruments when I heard the movie was coming out, and there was a voucher to get City of Bones. I’m so happy I found that voucher. Because then I found that book. And then I found all of the other books after it. And then I read them all and fell in love with them. As well as Allegiant, TMI is in my top-three-favourite-series. And it’s no wonder why. They’re just so brilliant. Note this cover is NOT the final cover, obviously.
CoHF is released next March- too long a wait! Oh, well. Only ten months.
#3- The Wells Bequest by Polly Shulman
This book is not as well known as the two above mentioned. But, it’s previous installment absolutely blew me away. The Wells Bequest is a companion, but not a sequel. It’s set before The Grimm Legacy and focuses on a different aspect of the building, not to do with fairy tales this time. It’d take me a while to explain the whole concept, so HERE, read my review of TGL. The Grimm legacy was such an amazing book, and I loved it so much… I really can’t wait for this version, focusing on objects to do with H. G. Wells- one of the awesomest writers ever!
The Wells Bequest is out in just two weeks! Wahey!
#4- Shipwrecked by Siobhan Curham
I’m in a very happy mood now. I’ve just realised, reading Goodreads, that THIS COMES OUT TOMORROW. I can’t even wait twenty four hours, though! Siobhan Curham is, hands down, my favourite UKYA author this year. Finding Cherokee Brown I loved so much- and I enjoyed Siobhan’s other book, Dear Dylan, just as much. They’re both contemporary books, based around teenage girls living in a normal world, but it seems Siobhan’s sailing (geddit? Because it’s called Shipwrecked?!) into new territory with a book based around a dance crew that find themselves on a shipwrecked cruise boat on an island, where tension is rising. Sounds so brilliant, and I can’t wait to read it!
Shipwrecked is out tomorrow, so I’m ecstatic. Though I start school tomorrow, so I’m not so ecstatic. So I’ll buy it on the weekend. Now I’m ecstatic again.
#5- The Mysterious and Untitled New Book by John Green
No, it’s not really called that. I found it on Goodreads- a blank book cover with the title: Untitled, and with the author: John Green. Could this mean John Green is writing a new book? I’m so excited!! I discovered John Green’s masterpieces this year with The Fault in Our Stars, and I’ve been impatient to read more ever since I finished all of his other books. I think all of the Nerdfighters and John Green fans are behind me when I say ‘WE NEED THIS OUT NOW!’. No cover to see, here, as obviously no hints have been dropped by the author or publisher at all.
John Green’s new book, is supposed to be released next January- I can’t wait!
What book’s are you waiting for the release of?
