The Game of Lives by James Dashner – The final installment in a series that I flew through, Dashner weaves a story that is as realistic and captivating as it is disturbing and thought-provoking. I shiver in anticipation of this ending.
The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – I know I’ve mentioned this book in at least one another post but this premiere looks to be amazing. It’s a little bit fantasy, a little bit fairy tale, and a whole lot of excellent writing (at least what I saw in the excerpt).
Fairest by Marissa Meyer – Villains nowadays are far more complex than they used to be. There is always a back story and this is Queen Levana’s (The Lunar Chronicles) story. Which begs the question, is evil born or is it made?
Winter by Marissa Meyer – And speaking of The Lunar Chronicles, I’m freaking out, losing my mind waiting for this next book which won’t be published for another year! But since the story has been so amazing thus far, I guess I can wait…or reread while I wait.
Untitled by Sarah Maas – The next book in the Throne of Glass series! I’m about two-thirds of the way through the third book and it is sucking me in again. I haven’t even finished it and I know I’m stoked to find out what happens next.
A Court of Thorn and Roses by Sarah Mass – And speaking of Maas, she is slated to be premiering a whole new series that tangles Beauty and the Beast in a whole new world of myth and magic. It will be wonderful, I just know it.
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge – More fairy tales made modern, this time it’s Little Red Riding Hood but not the powerless little girl, no, instead a badass dark magic user who is forced to work for her enemy. I wonder how well that will end for either of them.
Untitled by Sara Raasch – I didn’t think my heart could take the entirety of Snow Like Ashes but now that the second piece is slated for next year, I’m already bracing myself for whatever adventure happens next. Oh, if I could but live in a land of eternal winter.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – A new tale spun in an old universe that has me hopeful for this book. It is hailed a mixed of Ocean’s 11 and Game of Thrones (aren’t they all?) so I’ll be interested to see how it turns out.
The Heir by Kiera Cass – I’m not nearly as excited for this book as most others are. I think the series would have been fine with just the 3 books but hey, I’ll probably still read this one.
