Top Ten New Series I’m Lusting After
I had to enlist trusty Goodreads again for this one. I have a considerable backlist to get through, but pre-blogging I can rarely pinpoint new series release dates. So, according to Goodreads’ Lists, here are the Top Ten New Series I’m Lusting After, where the first book was released in either 2013 or 2014.
1. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (released 2013) – This series has been in the spotlight yet again with the recent release of book two (The Infinite Sea). I was hesitant to read this one as there were some mixed reviews, and I was more keen on reading it before the hype, and when I thought it was a stand-alone. I picked up the eBook for 99p in the Amazon Summer Sale (who can say no to that?!) but with the hype surrounding the second book, I’ve put reading it off for a little while.
2. Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren – I’ve heard this book mentioned by a couple of bloggers, and my trusty-romance-sidekick Brandie really enjoyed it, so when I next feel like delving into a sexy romance, I think this is where I’ll go to get my kicks!
3. Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke – I first fell for the cover of this book, and then the great reviews. The storyline just seems so gripping! Unfortunately, the gorgeous cover seems to be the US edition, and I refuse to own any other!
5. Boomerang by Noelle August – Noelle August is a pen name for popular author Veronica Rossi. The cover of this one didn’t do much for me (not sure why I’m focussing so much on covers this week!) but I’ve heard tons of good things about this book, so it’s on my radar. I really got into New Adult reads this year, and though I’m on a NA-break at the minute, I know I’ll be back to it soon.
6. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray – I don’t often delve into Sci-Fi, but stories like this just seem to grab me, it sounds so compelling, and is another book/series that has been getting great reviews.
7. White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L Armentrout – I’ve yet to read an Armentrout book. I know. I know. Loads of them are on my wishlist though, and this one is definitely on there for being such a surprise. The cover didn’t give away much about this one at all, and then I read the blurb. So intrigued!
8. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman – I’m a sucker for WW2 fiction, and this one just called to me. The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult is excellent for any other fans out there, and I’m nearly finished Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, I had no idea it was WW2 based when I picked it up, and it has proved to be a great surprise so far!
9. Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M Lee – Another Sci-Fi thrown in this week. I’m not so good with sub-genres, but this type of Sci-Fi is one I tend to like. I can’t name the type I don’t like, but trust me it exists and it’s usually painful and mind-boggling to get through.
10. The Glass Sentence by S E Grove – I thought I wasn’t much of a Fantasy girl either, until I read Throne of Glass. I’ve seen BookTubers talking about this one, and it looks super interesting!
Honorary Mention – The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black – My thought process for this book – “It’s by Cassandra Clare = I want to read it”. “It’s Middle Grade, so maybe not”. “Oh, but this review says it’s good, hmm maybe I will”. “Uh oh, this review says it’s a carbon copy of Harry Potter, oh no, can’t do that”. “Hmm, this one says it’s only a little like Harry Potter, but it’s still a great read”. “Oh, I just don’t know”. Yea, welcome to the brain of a Book Geek/book blogger.
Have Your Say:
Have Your Say is back this week! I know I still have to get to Cinder, and the last time I did this the winner was Eleanor & Park, so I will get to those soon, pinkie promise. In the meantime…
