The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Release Date: January 2nd

Everyone has been raving about this book, I don’t think there’s anyone out there who ISN’T loving this book! I also love this black and gold cover from Barnes & Noble and I think that’s the one I’ll be getting. I need to read more Fae books!

Everless by Sara Holland
Release Date: January 2nd

This one is like a fantasy mixed with the movie ‘In Time’ if you’ve ever seen that, people use time off of their lives as currency. I am down for this!

Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu
Release Date: January 2nd

Well I already have the Wonder Woman book so I need the Batman one, it’s just good manners.

Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely
Release Date: January 2nd

A dystopian, western featuring a girl who fights against a corrupt city. I like the blend of two very distinct and different genres, I think it will prove to be a very unique book.

Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking
Release Date: January 2nd

I was lucky to recieve an e-galley of this book and really enjoy it. It’s about Valkyries who are put in charge of slaying the other immortals on Earth, including many different supernatural beings from many different mythologies around the world.

You can read my full review here. 

A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole
Release Date: January 2nd

I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK! It reminded me a lot of the movie ‘Avatar’ with the lush flora and fauna on a far off planet that a group of humans now inhabit along with the indiginous people. The world building is seriously creative, unique, and amazing.

You can read my full review here. 

The Forgotten Book by Mechthild Glaser 
Release Date: January 2nd

This one is about a girl who finds a book that whatever she writes in it comes true. Sounds very “Inkheart” and also kind of like “Death Note” hopefully not the latter, haha!

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Release Date: January 9th

This is being described as Indiana Jones in space and that right there has me sold.

Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire
Release Date: January 9th

The third book in this series I’m excited to read about one of the “nonsense” worlds and hope that McGuire gives us more books!

Iron Gold by Pierce Brown
Release Date: January 16th

While I have yet to finish the last 2 books I am 100% ready for this one too so I can binge!

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
Release Date: January 16th

All I know is this is about an unsolved kidnapping mystery and a new kid attending the school where it happeend tries solving it but also a new crime that has appeared as well. Sounds pretty good though.

Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
Release Date: January 23rd

I’m SUPER excited for this one because 1.) the cover is gorgeous and 2.) it’s a fantasy about a necromancer and it’s also LGBT!

Markswoman by Rati Mehrotra
Release Date: January 23rd

This fantasy sounds badass, it’s about a sisterhood of elite warriors that use telepathic blades. Awesome.

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
Release Date: January 23rd

This one seems like a really fun and cute read featuring POC and also an asexual main character

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
Release Date: January 30th

This one is a about a girl whose grandmother wrote a book of dark fairy tales and when her mother is kidnapped by something that claims to be from the land portrayed in those tales she is determined to rescue her. It SOUNDS great but I haven’t been hearing great things about it so far, so eehhhh.

Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen
Release Date: January 30th

A high fantasy about a girl who marries a king to ensure the safety of her family and her people but finds out her husband is hell bent on destroying Elementae, people who have control over the elements, and discovers she has these abilities. Sounds really good though!

(aka not on my own TBR)

    Yep January is hard on the reading priorities lol! I have a library copy of Cruel Prince and also waiting for Truly Devious and the Hazel Wood from my library. I am currently reading Reign the Earth and it’s a good series opener so far. I’m also beyond myself when it comes to reading Everless; once the ARC’s are done, I devouring that book lol. Thanks for the extensive list; it’s nice to remember the other books coming out 🙂

    Very nice choices! I’m excited about Truly, Devious; I read A Study in Charlotte and it sort of reminds me of that. Plus, I really enjoy Maureen Johnson’s stuff. I hope all these reads are amazing for you!

    Great Post, Heather 🌸
    Wonder Woman is still on my TBR but if I enjoy it I’m sure I’ll want to read Batman too! Although Fantasy isn’t my normal genre Thunder Head & Scyth looks SUPER interesting, hopefully I’ll get to read them this year.

      Thanks Michelle! I’m the same with Wonder Woman, if I like it I’ll keep going so hopefully we both love it! Same with Scythe, it does sound like a really interesting book hopefully you can make time for it I’d love to hear what you think as always! 🙂
