Most Anticipated Fall Releases!

fallreleases

Ever since Queen of Shadows came out I’ve been thinking about all the amazing books coming out this fall (September, October, November) that I can’t wait to get my hands on! Some of them I actually didn’t even realize existed until I went on Goodreads and Chapters/Indigo to make this list… I’m not going to include synopses because I don’t want this post to be ridiculously long (also a lot of them are sequels and spoilers!), but I’ll include the link to the Goodreads page in case any of you are interested.

Saga Volume 5 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Release Date: September 9th
Goodreads
I have never been more excited for a trade in my entire life. Honestly after reading volume 4 I just wanted to keep following the single issues, but I knew I would be irritated only getting one issue at a time. I will be picking this up tomorrow (assuming my comic book store has some)!

Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
Release Date: September 15th
Goodreads
I am obsessed with Mindy Kaling and cannot even begin to express how excited I am for this book and for the new season of The Mindy Project. Her first book was so hilarious and authentic and I’m anticipating this one will be just as good.

Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
Release Date: September 22nd
Goodreads
Okay, so, I might be jumping ahead of things here. I haven’t actually read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children or Hollow City yet… But I want to marathon them in October because that’s in the Halloween spirit, right? They look creepy and so awesome!

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Release Date: October 6th
Goodreads
This might actually be my most anticipated release of the year. Rainbow Rowell is fantastic. Fangirl is probably one of my favourite books of all time and I found myself just as invested in the Carry On story as I was for Cath’s story. This is going to be fantastic *cue 9th doctor’s voice*.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R.R. Martin
Release Date: October 6th
Goodreads
Honestly I’m just hoping that these short stories can hold me off until The Winds of Winter comes out… whenever that is… Anything happening in Westeros past, present, or future is good enough for me! Bring it on George!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay
Release Date: October 6th
Goodreads
I didn’t even know this was a thing until a week ago when I clicked on Chapter’s “Most Anticipated Books of 2015” list. Another set of Harry Potter books will soon be on my shelves… I’ll probably ask for this for Christmas since I can’t justify spending money on yet another set of the same books, but better believe I’m getting my hands on this one way or another.

After Alice by Gregory Macguire
Release Date: October 27th
Goodreads
I read Wicked by Gregory Macguire because I have been obsessed with the musical Wicked since grade 8. I have yet to continue on with Wicked’s sequels or any of his other books, but Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is one of my favourite stories of all time. I’m really interested to see what kind of spin he puts on this classic story.

fall6 fall1 fall9

Winter by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: November 10th
Goodreads
This books is fighting Carry On for my most anticipated book of this year. Despite the fact that I questioned how cyborgs and fairy tale retellings would mesh, I found Cinder amazing, Scarlet was even better, and Cress literally blew me away. I even enjoyed Fairest, which is strange because I usually don’t like reading about the enemy. I hope Marissa Meyer never stops writing unique and charming books like these.

November 9 by Colleen Hoover
Release Date: November 10th
Goodreads
I just started reading new adult books recently and I’ve completely devoured all of Colleen Hoover’s books in such a short span of time. This woman has a serious gift. As tragic as the underlying themes may be, they are hilarious, the characters are so real and the emotions can be felt on so many different levels. I doubt this book will let me down.

Soundless by Richelle Mead
Release Date: November 10th
Goodreads
Honestly, I’m not even sure if I’m interested in this books because it’s unlike anything I have ever read or solely because Richelle Mead wrote it. She is literally a goddess and I’m going to be sad leaving her vampire world behind, but I’m sure this book will blow me away just the same. I’m pretty sure it’s also suppose to be a standalone, which is a blessing for my bank and my tbr pile.

What’s your most anticipated book coming out in the next few months? Is anyone else as excited as I am for these ones? Let me know!

Happy Reading!

MARCH WRAP-UP & APRIL TBR!

MARCH WRAP-UP!

I honestly don’t understand how it’s April 4th… March has gone by so quickly I’m dumbfounded. My first final exam is in exactly one week and I could not be less prepared…Between midterms, final papers, and moving my sister into her new house I’m surprised I even did any reading this month! Well… I’m actually not surprised… because my favourite way to procrastinate on school work is by reading for pleasure.

1. A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin 

I spent the first 21 days of March tackling this bad boy… I don’t know how I read A Feast For Crows in a week when everyone seems to think it was the most boring, and yet I could not seem to finish ADWD. It honestly took every ounce of my being to push through and not give up. I needed to finish before the new season NEXT WEEKEND! Sorry George, this one was only 4/5 stars for me because I was kind of bored.

2. The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks 

As soon as I finished ADWD I needed something romantic that could help me stop thinking about how depressing ASOIF is… and how tragic the season finale of The 100 was. I basically just really badly needed a pick me up and let me tell you, what a perfect book I picked!! This was so cute, it made me giggle, and I just loved it. 5 stars for you Sir Nicholas Sparks!

3. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Literally all I have to say about this book is.. WOW! Rainbow Rowell seriously blows me away with her writing. I liked Eleanor & Park a lot, I loveeed Fangirl.. but holy shit. Attachments was so funny, so cute, and honestly I can’t even find words. The ending ❤ ❤ ❤ my stomach flipped so many times. AAAhhh, just perfect. Go read it. Right now. All the 5’s!!

4. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover 

Can you tell I’m on a serious contemporary romance rampage?? WHERE HAS COLLEN HOOVER BEEN ALL MY LIFE?! This was my first book by her, and wow, seriously blown away. My heart broke so many times in this book, but the ending could not have been more perfect. Ridge… *swoons* *sighs* *passes out*. 5 stars for you Colleen Hoover!

Considering it took me 21 days to finish reading ONE book, I’m kind of impressed I was able to catch up with another 3 books… plus studying for midterms and write final papers and all that fun stuff… I’m also still 6 books ahead of schedule for my goal of 60 books this year, go me!

APRIL TBR!

I’m not going to stick to a TBR list this month because I have 5 final exams and as much as I hate to admit it, I probably wont be doing much reading… So I think the best thing to do is to just read what I feel like, when I feel like it… I’ve already finished Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, so I’ll probably continue on my contemporary rampage until I get sick of them! But one thing is forsure… I’m reading Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins as soon as it comes out next week!

What are you guys reading this month? Are you keeping up on your goals for this year? Do you have any anticipated releases this month? Let me know!

TOP TEN TUESDAY: 2015 ANTICIPATION

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

TOP TEN BOOKS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO IN 2015

1. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. I don’t know that this even needs to be explained… I will probably still be reading Cassandra Clare’s books when I am 30 at this rate.

2. Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins. I wasn’t even sure I would be into these books when I first picked it up, but H O L Y CRAP. It was so interesting and bizarre it had me from the beginning and now I can’t wait for the second. However, not the biggest fan of the cover…

3. The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead. I haven’t even started reading the Bloodlines series yet… But I marathoned Vampire Academy so that’s probably what I’ll do with this.

4. P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han. I’m so glad there is a sequel because I was left hanging and didn’t even know how to deal with myself after I finished the first one. So many feelings.

5. Winter by Marissa Meyer. Still haven’t read Cress (it’s on my christmas list) but I already know I’ll love it because the first two were amazing… Plus everyone says they love Cress so I’m sure we will also all love Winter.

6. Fairest by Marissa Meyer. This will be a nice taste of something by Marissa Meyer before we get our hands on Winter.

7. All the Rage by Courtney Summers. I’ve been following Courtney Summers since I was in high school and I’m really interested in this one. She deals with a lot of issues that are very prevalent, but also a bit taboo. This one is about sexual assault and I will definitely be picking it up as soon as it’s out.

8. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. Again…. I haven’t even read Throne of Glass yet…. But this new series sounds phenomenal. I just want to read all the books all the time and I don’t have the time of day!!

9. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling. It’s Mindy Kaling. What more do I actually have to say to justify why this is on my list?

10. Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare. These novellas will be released like The Bane Chronicles was and it will follow Simon as he transitions into his new role as a shadowhunter. I bought the first two novellas in The Bane Chronicles the months they were released and then just stopped and waited for the binding… so realistically I will probably do the same for these. But I’m excited none the less.

What are you all looking forward to in 2015? Am I missing anything?

Also sidenote: I just saw Horrible Bosses 2… it was hilarious.
