Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re talking 2016 releases. I’ve mentioned this before, but I never really know about new/upcoming releases until I hear about them from other bloggers. So this is my attempt to scrounge together a list of books I will definitely be reading once they’re out. Be forewarned, there are only four of them.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: I feel like they started doing press for this book forever ago, so long ago that I actually assumed it had already come out. I’m curious about this book, though I also feel like these aren’t true witches. (Lately I’ve been keen to read a book about more “legitimate,” traditional witches.)
The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh: The ugly blue of this cover kills me. I feel like it wouldn’t be that bad if it weren’t such a terrible blue! But anyways, when I first finished The Wrath and the Dawn, I was furious that I had to wait almost a year for the next book.
Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke: On one hand, the cover is gorgeous and the blurb sounds interesting enough. On the other hand, that same blurb was frustratingly vague and it compares this book to We Were Liars (which I hated) and The Raven Boys (towards which I am very indifferent). But let’s be honest, I’m still going to read this. That cover alone would be enough.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton: That cover, that concept, that blurb. There’s not a single part of this that isn’t working for me.
Clearly I’m no good at this type of TTT. I’m never on top of the new release scene, so if anyone has any recommendations, let me know!
