Hi guys! Sorry if you’ve seen this go live and and you’ve thought ‘wait … there’s nothing here to read about’! Well sorry about that! I’m here now and I just want to apologise for the lack of professionalism on my behalf – I’m a bad blogger 😦
Anyway, this week’s I’m going to be discussing my most anticipated releases for the remaining 6 months of 2017! It’s CRAZZZZYYYY knowing that we only have 6 months of this year left … wow. Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee
‘Witty, romantic, and intriguing at every turn, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is a sumptuous romp that explores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and love.’
Ohhhhh 18th century romance between two males …. raunchy! Aside this, I haven’t picked up a book yet that is based around same sex romances which is rather embarrassing, but THIS has fantasy and historical content and I can’t wait ❤
The Ends of the World by Maggie Hall
‘Avery will have to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice—for the world, for family, and for love—in this thrilling conclusion to the Conspiracy of Us series.’
I only have the first book which I haven’t even read yet, but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to pick the rest of the trilogy up! My only hope is that it is written well enough for me to want to pick the remaining books up!
Lucky in Love by Kasie West
‘With tons of humor and heart, Kasie West delivers a million-dollar tale of winning, losing, and falling in love.’
I love most contemporaries, but I haven’t even picked up ‘By Your Side’ yet so it looks like this one will be also put on the back burner. Katie West has such an easy writing style which is so simple to follow – it’s really romantic and allows you to fall right into the book.
Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popović
“Wicked Like a Wildfire was like devouring a succulent fairy fruit—it will rob your time, settle into your dreams, and leave you starving for more.” —Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen
Fans of Holly Black and Leigh Bardugo will be bewitched by Lana Popovic’s debut YA fantasy novel about a bargain that binds the fates—and hearts—of twin sisters to a force larger than life.
Ohhhh recommendations based around a love for Leigh Bardugo … I’M IN! Plus the cover is super cute ❤
Wild Beauty by Anna-Maire McLemore
Love grows such strange things.
For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish.
Ohhhh this sounds so interesting and I love the whole idea of a hidden legacy – it’s very Romeo and Juliet-esque. But the cover also kind of reminds me of Beauty and the Beast – a mysterious boy … I can’t wait to find out more!
Aftercare Instructions by Bonnie Pipkin
In the tradition of Jandy Nelson and Rainbow Rowell, a big-hearted journey of furious friendship, crazy love, and unexpected hope after a teen’s decision to end an unwanted pregnancy.
I love reading books based around teen pregnancy. If they’re well written I love them even more. The characters can sometimes turn into moaning, childish humans which make me dislike them even more.
Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios
‘Deeply affecting and unflinchingly honest, this is a story about spiraling into darkness—and emerging into the light again.’
I can’t say that I have ever read a book about a controlling relationship in YA before – I can’t wait to see how this one pans out …
Well folks, sorry about the delay in producing this post – it’s been a little bit of an upsetting 24 hours and the issue concerned needed sorting out – family and partners are more important than blogging I am afraid to say. Anyway, that aside, what books are you most excited for? Let me know 🙂
