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!

Review | DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff

DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff

Goodreads | Indigo | Amazon CAN | Amazon US | Book Depository


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.

Most Anticipated Reads of August 2019

Morning, bloggers!

As we all say hello to August, I’m trying to wrap my mind around the fact that we’re in the eighth month of the year. I can’t believe we’re in the middle of summer.

Before I started this post, I didn’t know if it’d be larger than what it is now. Typically, my upcoming TBR list is always long, whether or not my bank account has a say in the matter. But with August though, I hesitated with many forthcoming titles. But I am loving the variety.

I hope you love the post! What is your most anticipated book?

Most Anticipated Reads of July 2019

Morning, bloggers!

June felt slow in one week yet felt it wouldn’t slow down in the other. Now July is here, and I don’t know what to say. For my fellow Canadian bloggers, I want to wish you a Happy Canada Day! And as I write this post, I hear all the fireworks, so they definitely set the mood.

The time has come again where I bloat your already full TBR list even more. Am I sorry? No. But my list/pile would like to give you its condolences. 😂 I haven’t listed all the books but have shown you the ones I’m looking forward to the most.

I hope you find your next favourite release!

Monthly Wrap-Up: May 2019

 

Ah, another month has passed. I’m glad but somewhat sad to see it go. May is always a fantastic month for readers. So I’m happy to see my TBR list grow.

I’ve kept quiet on my personal life, but I have to say that even though I’m struggling, I know the book community is keeping me sane. So I want to thank everyone for all the support.

So while May is gone, I am eager to see what June will bring.

Most Anticipated Reads of May 2019

Good morning, readers,

May is my birth month. Typically, it’s pretty quiet for me. I don’t do much, and this years, all I want to do is read and avoid the world. But the book community is buzzing with new books. And I haven’t been this excited for a month until I saw what is being released. I feel it now. May will be exceptional.

Now, I haven’t listed all the forthcoming titles. So this list isn’t complete. But here are my most anticipated releases:
