Waiting on Wednesday [19]: August Releases

Once again, I’m a bit late as I used to do these posts at the beginning of the month. And since I was doing God knows what then, I wasn’t able to write it. So here, I thought I’d share with you some of the books that I’m looking forward to acquiring this month.

Things You Save in A Fire by Katherine Centre | The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang | Fence, Vol. 3 by C.S. Pacat | The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai | Ziggy, Stardust & Me by James Brandon

I’m especially looking forward to reading volume 3 of Fence. I feel like I’ve waited long enough for the volume! Things You Save in A Fire features a female firefighter – which I’m so curious to read about. The Right Swipe is purely because I’ve been seeing this everywhere on Twitter. I thought I’d check out what the big deal is. Ziggy, Stardust & Me by James Brandon is a coming of age story about a gay teen set in the backdrop of the Vietnam war. I’ve been dying to read this book since I saw it on Goodreads. An finally, The Dragon Republic. Now, y’all know I’m not much of a fantasy reader, but I absolutely love The Poppy War so I can’t wait to get this book in my grabby little hands!

The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward | Happy-Go-Lucky by L.H. Cosway | Blood Truth by J.R. Ward | Outfox by Sandra Brown | Handle with Care by Helena Hunting

The Day He Came Back is a second chance romance, so of course, I’m down. Happy-Go-Lucky is a story about an extrovert trying to lure an introvert out. Outfox is a no-brainer. I mean, I already have a copy so, I can’t wait to dive in. And I just love, love, Ms. Hunting. I can pretty much guarantee that I’ll read whatever she puts out. Also, Canadian!

what about you? what are you most looking forward to reading this month?

Waiting on Wednesday [16]: May Edition


As always, May is a great month for new releases. Not so much for my wallet, however. Here are a few of the books I want to feature for this post. Let me know which of these books are on your wishlist as well.

Only Human
by Sylvain Neuvel


Release Date: May 1st

I love this series. The first two books ended so painfully like a good series should. I requested a copy from Penguin Random House but it hasn’t arrived. I’m guessing I didn’t get it. Sigh.

 

 

A Court of Frost and Starlight
by Sarah J. Mass


Release Date: May 1st, 2018

I really hated how A Court of Mist and Fury ended. So of course, I’m dying to read this book. I picked up a copy just this past weekend, and I’m trying hard to resist taking a peek at the end. Teehee.

 

 

I Was Born For This
by Alice Oseman

 


Release Date: May 3rd, 2018

I just finished reading Ms. Oseman’s Radio Silence. I’m floored with her writing chops, y’all. I also like that this book speaks to my former life as a fandom follower.

 

 

Level Up
by Annabeth Albert


Release Date: May 17th, 2018

I am a huge fan of Ms. Albert. Also of M/M romance – and she does them well! Her main characters always have chemistry in spades, so I’m looking forward to this one about a physicist and a photographer.

 

 

Aftermath
by Kelley Armstrong


Release Date: May 22nd

Another book that I’ve requested that I didn’t get. Sigh. Anyway, Kelley Armstong is one of my favourite Canadian authors so I’m always excited when she’s got a new one out. Especially if it’s a YA book. She’s an expert in suspense!

 

LIFEL1K3
by Jay Kristoff


Release Date: May 29

Everyone but my neighbour’s cat seems to be reading this on Instagram – lucky! I know I will be lining up for this one unless some wish-granter will put me out of my misery and send me an ARC. Lol.

 

 

All the Little Lights
by Jamie McGuire


Release Date: May 29th, 2018

I was just wondering the other day what she’s been up to. Then I stumbled upon this book while scoping out Net Galley. I requested it but I never got a response back. Such is my life. Sigh.

 

So these are the books I’m looking to covet this month. Have you read them? And what are you waiting for this month?

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?
