For some reason I always feel like buying more books in the summer, summer book fever! So I decided it might be a little fun to do a list of the books I would buy right now if I had some extra spending cash…..and room to put them!
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
This book blew up in the book blogging community and I have to say I’m 100% here because of the hype. There’s just so much awesome going on here: shamanic powers, a military school, a dark/fantasy setting, and it’s Asian inspired fantasy too! I NEED this book! (and then I’d probably not read it right away, but still!)
Red Sister by Mark Lawrence
I actually have “Prince of Thorns” on my TBR as well but just need to hustle up and read it. However, Melanie and Lilly’s convinced me that I NEED this on my TBR as well and it sounds super badass. Go check out their amazing reviews if you want some convincing!
Also I don’t want the mass market paperback, I’d prefer a bigger sized paperback if not a hard cover. I can’t seem to find one anywhere, if you know where I can find one let me know please!
The Armored Saint by Myke Cole
This is a Tor novella, which is almost a guarantee of its awesomeness, that actually reminds me a lot of Dragon Age. I have Melanie to thank again for this recommendation via her amazing review!
The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde
I loved Wilde’s other novel “Queens of Geek” so I’m looking forward to reading “The Brightsiders” as well. I loved how much representation there was in QoG and I’m sure we will see just as much in this one.
Iron Gold (Red Rising #4) by Pierce Brown
Because the original trilogy ruined me and I’m ready to be ruined again. I haven’t bought this yet because 1.) it’s expensive and 2.) if I bought it everything else would be put on hold!
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Sirens, it’s a book about a siren trying to steal a prince’s heart: literally. Also I blame Destiny for my need of this book!
The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
Witches stealing the bodies of weak hearted girls in order to lure boys to the harbor and drown them. There’s a gorgeous cover and ONCE AGAIN Melanie totally convinced me I needed to have it, I know I promise this is the last book I’m tagging you for on here Melanie, haha!
The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware
I hear quite a few good things about Ruth Ware’s books and her latest is no exception. I’m excited to give this creepy, sort of gothic, mystery/thriller!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
