Yet another Tuesday, and yet another Top Ten. :) I'm seriously enjoying these prompts, and if you're interested in participating, you can find it hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week has me listing my top ten most anticipated reads for the fall season. Some of these I have as galleys, and others I have on auto buy. I don't know if I can put them in a list in order because I'm excited for all of them, but hey - what can you do but do your best to try? So here goes:
10. "We'll Never Be Apart" by Emiko Jean: This book caught my attention because of two things: twins and psychological thriller. I'm pretty much sold on those two aspects alone, but the premise for this is really fascinating. I'm looking forward to reading it (and I have it as a galley, so I'm happy dancing at the chance to read it before release).
9. "Hotel Ruby" by Suzanne Young: Creepy hotel that promises its occupants will never want to leave? I'm sold. I like horror/thriller/suspense/mystery books very much, so it sounds like a book right up my alley. There have been some mixed opinions from ARC readers though, so it's just a matter of seeing what happens.
8: "Until We Meet Again" by Renee Collins: This is another I have as an ARC and I'm excited to get the chance to read it before it releases this Fall. I'm into time travel stories/stories that cross different periods.
7. "Soundless" by Richelle Mead: I think I'm definitely ready to read another series starter by Richelle Mead, and for the fact that this is based on Chinese Folklore (plus, look at that epic cover!) I'm really excited about it and can't wait to read it.
6. "Cam Girl" by Leah Raeder: I really liked "Black Iris" and enjoyed aspects of "Unteachable", so it's no surprise I'd pick up this latest novel from Leah Raeder. And the premise has me really invested because it's not only featuring protagonists that have little featuring in New Adult, but actually among several romances that I've picked up personally. I got an ARC for this and should be reading it quite soon.
5. "Hold Me Close" by Megan Hart: I mentioned my eagerness for this in my previous post featuring NetGalley reads I was approved for. I really enjoy Megan Hart's writing and I've loved how she's touched on difficult topics in her various books, also for character depth and investment. This is one of her erotic titles (as opposed to other genres she's written in: paranormal, romance, literary fic, etc), so it should be interesting to see how she treats the topic covered here.
4. "I Crawl Through It" by A.S. King: I always look forward to A.S. King's narratives because they treat such unique and difficult subjects in an invested way. This sounds like it'll be an emotional read from the premise alone.
3. "Illuminae" by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: I've read from both of these authors before, and I've known about this book for quite some time. I'm especially intrigued to see how this story's told through the different mediums it features and the fact it takes place on a futuristic planet where a deadly plague has broken out. I'm hoping to read this in another couple of weeks before its release in late October.
2. "This is Where it Ends" by Marieke Njkamp: I'm expecting an emotional read out of this book because it deals with a very difficult subject matter: a school shooting. The bullet through the chalk featured on the cover was a jarringly nice touch, and the premise hooked me from point one. I have this as a galley and plan to read it as soon as I can.
1. "The Iron Warrior" by Julie Kagawa: I've been waiting on my eager hands for this last book in this trilogy of the Iron Fey series: Call of the Forgotten. I really liked Ethan as a main character, and the last book in this series ended on such an emotional cliffhanger, my reaction was akin to "Noooooooooooooooooo!" I'm wondering how it's all going to march to its conclusion, but I'll admit when it's over, it's going to be a bittersweet experience.
Until next week's entry,
