Waiting on Wednesday [13]: April Releases

Welcome to this month’s list of new releases that I’m dying to read.

Letters to the Lost
by Brigid Kemmerer

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

I’ve been wanting to read this since I’ve since it floated around the blogosphere. It’s bound to break me but I’m so ready. It’s certainly been getting some great reviews so far, so let’s hope the hype machine is on point with this one.

 

 

Alex, Approximately
by Jenn Bennett

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

Jenn Bennett has written a number of books before The Night Owls (a.k.a The Anatomical Shape of A Heart). But she’s recently broken the YA center stage with her contemporary release. I love, love The Night Owls. So, of course I needed to pick up a copy of this one. Lucky for me,  it was out early.

 

 

Waking Gods
by Sylvain Neuvel

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

Sleeping Giants was one of my favorite Science Fiction reads of all time. And it’s because for once, I never found it to be dry nor daunting. It was such a smooth read that I never once felt like it was Sci-Fi at all. I saw this on Net Galley but I knew I had to read it in its physical form. Dying to get started.

 

 

The Chosen
by J.R. Ward

Publication Date: April 4th, 2017

This is the 15th installment for The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I’ve looked forward to reading Xcor & Layla’s story since they’ve first been introduced. I know many have asked for her to end this, but I’m not one of those begging for its death. Lol. I love this series, no matter what. If I had a choice, I wish this could be as long as JD Robb’s In Death series. Lol.

 

Mister Moneybags
by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Publication Date: April 10th, 2017

I’ve recently become a fan of this writing duo. This quasi-series, in particular, is one of the best ones. I love the romances in each book. And I find that there is always some distinction to their characters. These books are such fun! And phew, are they ever steamy!

 

 

At Attention
by Annabeth Albert

Publication Date: April 10th, 2017

I can never resist a good M/M romance. I just found this series recently, actually and I haven’t read the first book. But I’m a huge fan of men in military! I’m also quite fond of Ms. Albert’s work so looking forward to reading this one.

 

 

So that’s all the books I’m looking forward to reading this month.
What’s on your list?

Waiting on Wednesday [12]: March Releases

Traitor to the Throne
by Alwyn Hamilton

Rebel of the Sands, #2
Release Date: March 7th, 2017

Loved Rebel of the Sands. Looking forward to this one! Worried about the love triangle implied but still excited to see whether this crew managed to stage their own rebellion.

 
 

Etched in Bone
by Anne Bishop

The Others, #5
Release Date: March 7th, 2017

We’ve been teased to within an inch of our lives. The previous 4 books kept us in suspense in all the ways that matter. But I’m chomping at the bit to see Meg and Simon advance their relationship further.

 
 

The Inexplicable Logic of My Life
by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Release Date: March 7th, 2018

To this day, Aristotle and Dante remain one of the most unforgettable couples in my books. It seems I’ve been praying for so long for Mr Sáenz to write another book. I can honestly say, I’m truly grateful for Benjamin’s ability to write. What an honour it is to read them.

 
 

Goodbye Days
by Jeff Zentner

Release Date: March 7th, 2017

The Serpent King was one of those surprise hits. It was so unassuming. The moment I took it for granted was the moment it sucker-punched me in the gut. So yeah, I’m going to make sure to expect the worst (and the best) from this novel. I can’t wait!

 
 

Saga, Volume 7
by Brian K. Vaughn & Fiona Staples

Release Date: March 28, 2017

I’m so excited for this. I always feel the need to read the previous instalment before jumping into the latest release. Due to the shortness of the volumes, I tend to forget. As far as I can remember, Alana and Hazel were reunited but Marko is still missing. And based on the reviews, it looks it’s a painful instalment by far. Gah!

 

The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley
by Hannah Tinti

Release Date: March 28th, 2017

From Goodreads: “This father-daughter epic weaves back and forth through time and across America, from Alaska to the Adirondacks.” This book explores the relationship between a father and daughter by confronting a dangerous past that had them on the run. DYING. Dying for this book.

The Magnolia Story by Chip & Joanna Gaines
The Waiting Tree by Lindsay Moynihan
Messenger by Carol Lynch Williams

Oh, man. I’ve just realized why I quit doing these posts all those years ago. Lol. It is not easy to do! I have to scour the interwebz for a list. Goodreads has a list but Amazon has a more extensive one. And then, this week, I decided to provide a link for each book so, it took me forever to draft it. I do enjoy it, though. And for my benefit, I like knowing what’s coming out this week.

I’m so excited to read Twisted Palace! OMG. The ending of Broken Prince was just so cruel. I can’t wait to read this. Needless to say, I’ve already pre-ordered a copy. I’m also looking forward to reading Royally Screwed by Emma Chase! Love me a good prince and pauper romantic story!

What about you? Anything from this list has you chomping at the bits?

October 4th, 2016

new-4 new-3 new-2 new-1

This past weekend, we had a book club meeting (sort of). No one read the book we picked aside from two people (oh, the humanity!). Yep. Our book club is off to a fantastic start. Lol. I’m there to meet up with other people who share the same interest as I, anyway so I don’t really care. The best part of going to the meeting is the venue (it’s at a bookstore, naturally). So I usually end up coming home with a bunch of books.

I was so ecstatic to see Holding Up the Universe so early! So I picked it up along with Crooked Kingdom. But I was disappointed to see that a couple of the books that were released last week was not on their shelves so I went to another location the next day. Lo and behold, I found a copy of Replica and Aerie several days before their release days!

I know authors hate it when we buy books ahead of the release day because it doesn’t count towards the sale for the week. Some authors don’t really care but I remember someone (not naming names) who gave a stink about not making the best seller list because her book was released ahead of time. Whatever. I bought your book. You’ll get the money eventually so staph. Anywho. What about you?

Do you get as excited as I am when you see a book out before its release date?

New Releases for September 27, 2016

sept-27-4 sept-27-3 sept-27-2-jpg sept-27-1


I have this annoying habit of preordering books that I’m looking forward to reading then, going to the bookstore on release day to pick up a copy. This week, I made sure I didn’t have any of these on my preorder list to avoid my husband’s knee-jerk conniption fit when he sees two copies of the same book. Lol.

I’m sure Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom is on everybody’s haul this week, as well, Like A River. I’m looking forward to reading those, too along with Rosamund Hodge’s Bright Smoke, Cold Fire.

What are you most excited to read this week?

Hot Off The Press [20]: This Week Will Break You

img_2306 When I was starting out as a blogger, I used to do a regular post about the books that are coming out on any given week. Then it came sporadically because I got lazy. Well, here we are; here I am, floundering, because I’ve been uninspired lately (hence, the less than regular post as of late).

In an effort to jump-start my stalled blogging schedule, I decided to look back to my old posts and look for inspiration. I stumbled upon this feature. It’s probably not going to help my ongoing struggle with curbing book purchases but at this point, I’ll try anything.

I’m somewhat surprised with the number of books coming out today. And though, I know this list is probably not as comprehensive, I hope there’s one or two that will catch your eye. I think I’m going to pick up David Arnold’s latest for myself even though I haven’t read Mosquitoland. Anyway, let me know what piqued your interest, and happy reading!
