Hey guys! It’s no secret on this blog that I’m unfortunately a busy person, which means not getting to books that I’ve been dying to read. It was the topic for Thursday’s Top 4, yesterday, but I missed it. So. There are actually so many so I might even end up making another post on this because if I can guilt myself into finally reading these books that are supposed to be amazing… then why not? I definitely don’t *cough* have exams coming up *cough*.
King of Scars
I’m actually so terrified to read this. There have been so many mixed reviews and while before I had been clamouring to grab it and tear through it… I really don’t want it to kind of spoil the whole vibe of the Grisha world and the characters which I have previously so fervently loved – since I’ve heard that it reads more as a kind of build-up to the next book and is slow and boring (and I DNF books fast). Let me know if you think I might like this?? I really don’t want to read it and end up disliking it. That will actually be the worst.
A Spark of White Fire
All I’ve heard is YA fantasy and beautiful writing and I was sold.
The Priory of the Orange Tree
This book is massive, but unlike some readers I’m actually sometimes attracted to massive books because I love having these two parallels of my life which are: live my life, then go live the characters’ in my current reads lives – and if the book is amazing and well-written and just done well, then that is what happens. When I was reading the Anne of Green Gables series it would literally be “go to school” and then “visit Anne” and then “homework” and then “visit Anne”. May sound weird to some of you, but it’s great, trust me.
It sounds like such a rich world and such a captivating plot that I know I need this in my life.
I LOVE Robin Hood! I read the original classic a couple years back and found it just as amazing as I knew it would be, and so I’m super excited. Update: I just went on to Goodreads and found out that this book is AFTER Robin Hood’s death and apparently Marian is a total Marie Sue?!! Ok, I’m not sure how I feel about this… ugh I’m so disappointed.
The Gilded Wolves
Any book compared to Six of Crows needs to be read by me immediately.
I think it’s safe to say I was obsessed with The Belles when I read it over a year ago, and so now I’m obviously so pumped to read the sequel, however pretty nervous as well because it hasn’t had particularly high reviews.
What new releases do you still need to read? Make me feel better 😀 Speak soon!
