top ten non debut 1

1) A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab: LONDON URBAN FANTASY WRITTEN BY AN AUTHOR I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO READ BUT HAVEN'T YET (this will become something of a theme in this post). AWESOME COVER. Just. AWESOME EVERYTHING. I LOVE LONDON URBAN FANTASY STORIES!!

2) The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough: THAT COVER. Also this just seems really cool? Historical fiction blended with fantasy set in 1930s, and the female MC is an African-American girl who wants to become a pilot!!

3) The Improbable Theory of Ana & Zak by Brian Katcher: GEEKS AT COMIC CON BASICALLY!!!! *shrieks*

4) Half Wild by Sally Green: SEQUEL TO HALF BAD. I HOPE THERE'S LOTS OF GABRIEL. THERE BETTER BE.

5) Black Iris by Leah Raeder: Queer girls! ROMANTIC SUSPENSE NOVEL. I STILL NEED TO READ UNTEACHABLE THOUGH.

6) All the Rage by Courtney Summers: I don't know how I haven't read a single book by Summers yet because I keep looking at them and thinking THEY SOUND AMAZING, I WANNA READ THEM. I think this book will be a really good place to start, as most people are saying it's Summers' best one yet, and it seems like a really difficult and honest read about rape culture.

7) Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway: Now that I've read a book by Benway, I AM SUPER LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS ONE. I love Benway's style. Cute with just the perfect amount of emotional depth.

8) Fish out of Water by Natalie Whipple: I JUST LOVE THE COVER and Cait @ Paper Fury gave it quite a good review. I dunno, it just seems like a really quirky and fun book! And diverse! Awesome.

9) Hold Me Closer by David Levithan: YEP IT'S THE TINY COOPER BOOK. THE TINY COOPER MUSICAL BOOK. I REALLY HOPE THIS IS GOOD. I absolutely loved Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

10) The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand: I have yet to read anything by Hand but this looks like a heartbreaking contemporary about grief.

PLUS TWO which don't have covers yet

What We Left Behind by Robin Talley: I loved Talley's debut, Lies We Tell Ourselves, so I'm really looking forward to her second book, which is about a romantic relationship between someone who identifies as a lesbian and someone who identifies as genderqueer and how they struggle through their first year of college apart. (MORE BOOKS ABOUT LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS PLEASE.)

Masquerade by Laura Lam: FINALLY THE THIRD AND FINAL BOOK IN THE MICAH GREY TRILOGY. I loved the first two, and I have been waiting for this third book for a while now. There was obviously a lot of trouble with Strange Chemistry closing down, but I think the third book will hopefully arrive some time this year!!

What non-debut releases are you looking forward to this year? Also, link me to your TTT posts so I can see what topic you chose this week! :D

  1. As I'm new to the meme and didn't understand the whole "freebie" idea, I didn't do a post for today. But I think I get it now - whatever you want!

    I've heard of a few of those books, but not many. One that jumps to mind straight away is Another Day by David Levithan, the sequel to Another Day. I NEED THAT BOOK!

    Have you read Don't Let Me Go by J.H. Trumble? It's AMAZING! About the relationship between two guys after one heads off to college (so, long distance), but also deals with homophobia, and being proud of who you are. It's brilliant, seriously hard to read at times, but the way Trumble wrote it felt to me like she was saying, "reader, you do not get to hide from the realities of some LGBTQ people's lives. This shit happens, and you're going to face it." So powerful. I really loved it! Seriously need to read more of her books.

      YES ANOTHER DAY. I wasn't as into Every Day as some of his other books, but I'm still looking forward to Another Day! I do agree with a lot of people that Every Day was a really good standalone though, I don't really see the need for a sequel. But I will read anything that man writes anyway, haha. I love David Levithan too much.

      YES I HAVE READ DON'T LET ME GO AND I DID LOVE IT. :D I honestly haven't read that many books with long distance relationships but that one did it so well, I thought. I'm just super into books about long distance relationships, haha. But yeah, I really need to read more of Trumble's books as well.

      1. Oh really? I loved Every Day! I think there *could* be a sequel, I'm interested in the other people like A. I found the whole idea quite fascinating. But I think it would be awesome to see Rhiannon's internal thoughts on it all - someone who is with someone who doesn't have a fixed gender, I think that will be interesting. That's also why I think Robin Talley's next book will be brilliant!

        I don't think I've read any other books on long distance relationships. So Talley's book will tick two boxes for me! :) But Trumble is amaaaaazing! :)

      I WILL DO IT KAYLA. I WILL DO BOTH OF THOSE THINGS. I know, ughhhh, I really want to read Vicious and The Archived!! I just have a feeling I will totally love all her books.

  2. WOAH YOU CHANGED YOUR DESIGN IT IS BEAUTIFUL. BUT I am really excited to read A Darker Shade of Magic, I'm planning to preorder it as my February book haha. And I like how EVERYTHING is pretty much in capitals hahahahha. GOOD LIST. I also am going to read Emmy & Oliver. So YAY

      I DID. I MOVED TO SELF-HOSTED. IT WAS ALL VERY EXCITING AND KIND OF CONFUSING AT TIMES BUT I MANAGED IT. Thanks, Val!

      Yeah, I just flailed a lot everywhere over these books. I NEED THEM IN MY LIFE NOW. I'M JEALOUS OF YOUR EMMY & OLIVER ARC. I don't actually ever preorder books normally, haha. The only books I ever really did that with were HP. It's very rare that I can actually find the time to read a book straightaway when it comes out anyway. BUT I AM SO TEMPTED TO PREORDER SOME OF THESE BOOKS BECAUSE I JUST CAN'T WAIT.

      YESSSS I KNOW I NEED TO READ VICIOUS SO BAD. YAY MASQUERADE!!! Lol I've already completely forgotten what happened in the second book though, I should probably have a flick through it again before Masquerade comes out!
