That’s it! We are officially halfway through the year. I recently saw Dini mentioning how these six months passed very quickly but at the same time it felt like we lived multiple years in a span of just a couple of months and I definitely agree with that.
July tends to be a “chill” month for book releases. But not this year! I was able to find 9 (NINE!) books I was excited about, and to tell you a little secret, some of them I already read and LOVED! *wink*
This summer is going to be full of so many new releases I’m excited about! I was also very lucky to get approved for the most ARCs I requested on NetGalley and now I have over 10 to go through next month. It’s going to be a very long TBR, but hopefully I’ll get to all of them soon.
I picked various books from different genres, so I hope you’ll also find some to add to your TBR, and let me know what other new release you’re excited about!
Are you excited for May? 🎁🌸 I sure am! It’s my birthday month and I’m planning to buy a bunch of books as a gift for myself. Most likely the quarantine will still be in force and I will be celebrating at home, but I don’t mind it at all as I will be surrounded by the people I love the most ❤
May is often a very good month for new releases, but this year I was only able to find 8 books I’m excited about. Maybe I missed some? Make sure to leave your most anticipated releases of next month in the comments below!
I don’t know about you, but sitting at home drastically increased my desire to buy new books. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Somehow I managed to control myself and not buy every single book off every single website, but I feel my control starting to waive.
April will be one of the best months for bookish releases! Between Mark Lawrence’s new fantasy book, the continuation of Founders trilogy and the final installment in the “Of Blood and Bone” trilogy by John Gwynne, I surely won’t have much time for anything else (except all my other OWLs books… 😀 ).
Every month I look forward to making this type of post. Who doesn’t like to get excited about new books?! There are tons of new amazing books coming out in March and I feel like people are mostly excited about the new Sarah J. Maas and Cassandra Clare books.
I said earlier this year that I won’t be picking up any new books by these two authors, because lately I’ve been disappointed by their new releases, even though I loved the Throne of Glass and the Mortal Instruments series.
This is one of my favorite posts to prepare every month! It helps me discover new books that maybe weren’t on my radar yet, and it also allows me to share my excitement for all new books with you, guys!
February will be the “thriller” month – from new Mary Kubica book (who doesn’t love Mary Kubica?!) to some amazing debuts that sound incredible – I just hope that I’ll be able to purchase / get most of these and read this year.
I think I’m going through a reading identity crisis!
With all yearly wrap up posts, stats, and graphs, I had the chance to analyze my reading, see what books I tend to pick up and give higher ratings to. What I learned was that over the past couple of years I slowly decreased the amount of YA books I read and instead reached more towards Adult books.
This is all very new to me and I’m still trying to see what exactly I love in books. While I’m brainstorming and figuring out my reading preferences, I thought I’d join Top Ten Tuesday meme this week and share with you all of my most anticipated releases of this month (which are mostly Adult Fiction and Thrillers)!
November will be the month of catching up. I already feel the pressure of getting all things done before the end of the year, prepare for the Christmas season and just try to stay on top of things in preparation for 2020.
Publishers must feel the same because November is marked by many releases of next-in-the series books that I’m very excited about!
Autumn is usually filled with new releases. This October won’t be an exception. Even though there are more there hundreds of books coming out this month, I was very picky and chose my top 5 that I’m the most excited about!
One of them I already started reading, and let me tell you – it’s incredible!
September begins with some very exciting new releases! It’s interesting how hyped I get about the last books in the series I haven’t even started yet, but we will blame it on the bookish community and my sensitivity to all things bookish.
In my defense, I already own the first two Nevernight books so it’s only a matter of actually reading them.
It’s officially the 6th day of NEWTs, and I’ve yet to read any of the books from my readathon TBR. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Instead I picked up «Normal People» by Sally Rooney (It’s amazing btw!) and spent many hours looking at the upcoming releases.
There are some very exciting books coming out this month (i.e. «The Passenger» by John Marrs) and I was very lucky to get two ARCs – «Bursts of Fire», which I’m planning to read asap, and «Keeping Lucy» that I read in June!
There is only one downside to these “most anticipated releases” posts – I tend to request too many ARCs on Netgalley. Then they all get approved at the same time and I suddenly have tons of books that need to be read ASAP!
I still love seeing new releases and pick a few that spark my interest to share them on my blog.
July will be a great month for new releases! I’m the most excited about «The Merciful Crow» (that I didn’t get the ARC of) and «Stay and Fight» (that I’m going to start reading this week!).
Unlike May, June doesn’t have 300 new books that I’m excited to read. In fact, I was only able to find 8 books I was interested in! (Which usually never happens, as I want to read everything and at the same time!)
Some month I struggle to find new books to add to this post. While other months, there are so many of them that it becomes difficult to narrow the list down. This was the case for April. This post could go on and on forever!
I can’t even imagine what May will be like. Most of my current ARCs will be published in May and I haven’t even checked other new releases yet. But one step at a time! Let’s see what April brings us!
