Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Last week’s topic that I missed was Summer Reads Freebie, and this week’s topic is Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017. So I thought I would sort of combine these two to share my summer TBR and releases I’m anticipating from the latter half of this year.
On my summer TBR…
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling (reread)
As I continue my HP reread, I’m very excited to get started on my second favorite book of the series!
Duels and Deceptions by Cindy Anstey
I enjoyed Love, Lies & Spies last year, so I’m looking forward to Anstey’s follow-up!
These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
This wasn’t on my spring TBR I don’t know what you’re talking about…
Without a Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal
The way something was handled in the previous Glamourist Histories book makes me not as eager to pick up this one, but I have it so I want to give it a fair shot. Hopefully what happened last time will be redeemed.
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
This is one of my many library holds and I’m hoping it’ll come through this summer. My husband and I just started the BBC Sherlock so it’s put me in the mood!
By Your Side by Kasie West
Another library hold I hope will come through soon. I know that this one has been generally less liked than West’s other works, but I still want to read it.
What I’m Anticipating From The Latter Half of This Year
Here Lies Daniel Tate by Cristin Terrill, Coming June 6
I thought All Our Yesterdays was fantastic, so I’m ready to read something new by Cristin!
Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo, Coming August 29
It’ll be interesting to read something by Leigh outside of the Grishaverse!
The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo, Coming September 26
Renegades by Marissa Meyer, Coming November 7
Confession: I felt burned by Heartless. I adored The Lunar Chronicles and Heartless was just way too much of a downer for me. I’m cautiously optimistic that Renegades could be better, but I’ll probably try to borrow from the library instead of buying it right away like I did Heartless. But the concept definitely sounds interesting!
What are you planning to read this summer? What releases coming later this year are you anticipating?
