3. Can’t Wait 2016

Since the beginning of the year, I have been looking forward to so many books that are coming out in 2016. Narrowing it down to my Top 5 might just kill me, so this is the third post of this series. (Click here to view the first and second posts)


7. Untitled by Marissa Meyer

This novel has yet to be revealed. All I know about it is that it is about superheroes and villains. I am quite excited for this book, especially the name and cover reveal. I actually have never read a book about superheroes, and since my favourite YouTuber, Sasha Alsberg, aka ABookUtopia, is still writing a novel about superheroes and villains for NaNoWriMo, I am even more excited for both of them. Marissa Meyer’s novel should be published near the end of 2016.


8. Ruined by Amy Tintera

26072584On Amy Tintera’s blog, she describes her third novel as being a cross between Throne of Glass (Sarah J Maas) and The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Rae Carson). I have not actually read either of them, but they are both high up on my TBR list.

RUINED follows a princess out for revenge as she infiltrates the ruling kingdom’s royal family by pretending to be the prince’s fiancée. (Amy Tintera)

This book sounds really cool, and as a high fantasy YA novel-lover, I am looking forward to this book.


9. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

20983362I found out about Passenger from ABookUtopia. Sasha was given an ARC (Advanced Readers Copy), and I was very jealous! She posted a video about her favourite books, and Passenger is the second book in the video. Go check it out for a summary from someone who has actually read it.

I also love this cover. It is so detailed and I am kind of looking forward to reading the book so that I can understand the cover a bit more.

This book sounds so interesting, since it has time travel and music in it. I am a bit of a Whovian, and I also love playing and making music. This book comes out in February 2016.

2. Can’t wait 2016

Since the beginning of the year, I have been looking forward to so many books that are coming out in 2016. Narrowing it down to my Top 5 might just kill me, so this is the second post of this series. I posted the first post yesterday.

4. Endure by Sara B. Larson

25440127

Endure is the third book in the Defy series, and although I have not actually read the second book, Ignite, I am so excited for it. I will be ordering both Endure and Ignite from Book Depository, early next year, or before Christmas. I have already posted a description of Defy, on another post. Go check it out for more information about it.

The covers for these books are so cool, I think that is partly what made me want to read it in the first place. Defy’s cover reminded me of Red Queen, which I loved. I have also ordered Ignite (#2) for Christmas, and will pre-order Endure.

5. The Siren by Kiera Cass

siren_bookcover

The Siren was written by Kiera Cass, author of one of my favourite series, The Selection.

Once again, the cover is gorgeous, and it really makes me want to read and own it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come out for 53 days!


The Siren is about a girl, Kahlen, who is a Siren. She is bound to serve the Ocean by luring humans to watery graves with her voice, which is deadly to any human who hears it. Akinli is human—a kind, handsome boy who’s everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. Falling in love puts them both in danger . . . but Kahlen can’t bear to stay away. Will she risk everything to follow her heart? (Goodreads Description)


6. See How They Run by Ally Carter

24644814

See How They Run is the second book in the Embassy Row series. I read the first one, All Fall Down, in one day. I was on holidays, and had nothing to do, but it was such a fast-paced book, that I hated to put it down.


Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her — so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping his eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace — no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to haunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down. (Goodreads description)

1. Can’t wait 2016

Since the beginning of the year, I have been looking forward to so many books that are coming out in 2016. Narrowing it down to my Top 5 might just kill me, so this topic will be split into a few different posts, so that it won’t be too long.

  1. The Crown by Kiera Cass

22924389-_uy1024_ss1024_

The Crown is the fifth and final book in The Selection series, which is a bit sad but really exciting, because I really want to find out what happens. The Selection series is known especially for its beautiful covers, and The Crown was no disappointment. The classic Princess Eadlyn purple really tops it off. In The Heir, Princess Eadlyn is having a selection of her own. 35 suitors are competing for her heart, and she is making it very difficult for them. Waiting to find out what happens in this selection is so hard for me, because I am so in love with this series, and I want Eadlyn to make the right decision.


2. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

51791fac06ad83b1f20c93afe76b15dbe0df3b81

Glass Sword is the second book in the Red Queen series. I read Red Queen in March, and I was so shocked by the ending, the plot twists, the story line, and the romance! I am so excited to read Glass Sword, especially since the cover is so gorgeous. In Red Queen, Mare, the main character is a Red. Reds are people in the country with red blood. They have no powers, and they are considered unworthy, to the Silvers. Silvers are people with silver blood. They have powers, such as controlling lightning, fire and water. But when Mare finds out that someone who she loves dearly needs to be saved, she must go into Silver territory, and try to save him. Little does she know, that going into the Silver’s land, will mean so much more than just saving someone.


3. Heartless by Marissa Meyer

18584855

Heartless is a stand-alone novel about the Queen of Hearts.

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.” – Marissa Meyer (website)

I’m so excited for this novel, as I am in love with the Lunar Chronicles, which is also by Marissa Meyer. Marissa Meyer writes the best spin-offs of fairytales. I don’t think I will ever be tired of fairytales, but if I ever do, I will just read The Lunar Chronicles, and I will fall back in love with them. (Cover yet to be revealed)

5. Books I wish I could read again for the first time

You know those books that you read, where you have just finished it, you are about to have a book hangover and all of a sudden it hits you. You can’t read that again, without knowing what happens. You can’t have that same racing heart-beating feeling that you have when you read a book for the first time. Well this, is my Top 5 list of books which I wish I could read for the first time again, in no particular order. (Although I don’t know if they actually are the Top 5, since I had to narrow this list down so much)

Here are the links to the first, second, third and fourth posts in this ‘series’.

5. Revived by Cat Patrick

13425868

To me, Revived is one of those books where you read it, and then if you want to read it again, you really don’t want to know what happens. I am definitely going to be reading this book again, and hopefully I will have read enough books in between to not really remember what happens.


It started with a bus crash.
Daisy Appleby was a little girl when it happened, and she barely remembers the accident or being brought back to life. At that moment, though, she became one of the first subjects in a covert government program that tests a drug called Revive.
Now fifteen, Daisy has died and been Revived five times. Each death means a new name, a new city, a new identity. The only constant in Daisy’s life is constant change.
Then Daisy meets Matt and Audrey McKean, charismatic siblings who quickly become her first real friends. But if she’s ever to have a normal life, Daisy must escape from an experiment that’s much larger–and more sinister–than she ever imagined. (Goodreads description)

4. Pawn by Aimée Carter

10838787


YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING.

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

There’s only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that’s not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she’s only beginning to understand. (Goodreads description)


I loved this book so much, and am currently trying to finish the other books that I am reading, so that I can read Captive, the next book in the series. I’m really excited to read this book again, but I so wish that I could read it again without knowing what happens! With all the plot twists, romance, action and going-ons, it’s hard not to.
Fun fact about this book:
It was originally titled Masked.

3. Defy by Sara B. Larson

defy-by-sara-b-larsonDefy is the first in the Defy Trilogy.


 

Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king’s army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince’s guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can’t prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.

The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she’s sworn to protect? (Goodreads description)

I finished Defy really fast because of the way it moved so fast, with heaps of action, romance and plot twists. Defy kept me on the edge of my seat, and the reason why I want to read it again is because the suspense of not knowing is so exhilarating that the next time I read it, even though I will enjoy it immensely, I won’t have that same feeling, to the same extent.

I rated this book 5 stars and I am so excited to read the rest of the series.

Happy reading,
