Most Anticipated Reads of May 2020

Morning, readers!

May is a big month for me. It’s my birth month. And typically we see a lot of new books releasing. Since the pandemic hit, I’m not too surprised to see upcoming releases pushed back or even cancelled. What I am excited about are these great new titles.

This list isn’t complete though. But here are my most anticipated books of May!

Most Anticipated Reads of December 2019

Morning, readers!

I almost planned not to do this post since many of the choices for December aren’t on my TBR list. However, I knew others would be interested in seeing what made the final cut.

So even though my plans have changed, the post will be short and sweet. Don’t worry about it being long. It’ll be a quick and easy read!

Now let’s get to it, shall we?

Most Anticipated Reads of October 2019

Morning, bloggers!

You’re glad a new month has arrived, yeah? I am. I think the last one killed my bank account and any savings I had left. Now October isn’t as bad as September with new releases, so at least we bloggers and readers can easily take a collective sigh and breather.

Thankfully, this month doesn’t have many titles I’m interested in. But I thought you might like these. Enjoy reading, everyone!

Most Anticipated Reads of September 2019

Morning, bloggers!

Get ready, everyone. We readers and bloggers will feel the burn. I will tell you now that this post will kill your credit card, your budget, and your TBR pile. So I am not responsible for any and all damages the list inflicts onto you. I’ve been dreading this month because of the number of releases.

These publishers weren’t joking when they said September was a killer. I warn you that the post is long, so buckle in!

In the wake of a climactic battle in the ruined city of Babel, two former best friends suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of the same quest. Eve is torn between the memories of the girl she was, and the synthetic she’s discovered herself to be. Together with her lifelike “siblings,” Eve sets out to find the real Ana Monrova, whose DNA is the key to building an army of lifelikes.

Meanwhile, Eve’s best friend, Lemon, is coming to terms with a power that she has long denied—and that others want to harness as a weapon. When she meets a strange boy named Grimm, he offers to lead her out of the horror-ridden landscape and to an enclave of other abnorms like herself. There, Lemon quickly finds a sense of belonging—and perhaps even love—among the other genetic deviates.

But all is not what it seems, and with enemies and friends, heroes and villains wearing interchangeable faces, Lemon, too, will join the race to locate Ana Monrova before her former best friend can get to her.


“Sometimes you don’t know you’ve crossed the line till you’re on the other side.”

Droogs, I don’t know if I can handle another one of Kristoff’s cliffhangers. I don’t. But this soul-destroying creator probably enjoys our torture, so I’m not counting on it. But damn you, Kristoff. Damn you.

Paradise Lost meets post-apocalyptic X-Men with a heavy dose of Mad Max, DEV1AT3 will utterly destroy your expectations. If you believed the ending of LIKEL1K3 was rough, then buckle in. Kristoff is will hit you with enough g-force you’ll come out breathless. It took me more than a month to come to terms with that ending. And I’m still not okay. I don’t understand how Kristoff conceives a mashup of storylines that somehow entwine together. Without a doubt, DEV1AT3 is one of the top favourite reads of 2019.
