So half of 2017 has virtually gone already!
What have i done with my life? (apart from bought books of course)
*Cries all the tears and designs a time machine to go back*
But on a positive note here are the Top 5 books I am hugely anticipating for the second half of the year, 3 of them are already published in hardback but I prefer to wait for the paperback if possible so, bearing that in mind, bring it on!
Turtles all the way down by John Green – Yes, a new John Green novel, I am beside myself with excitement for this one (lets hope the finished cover will be more thrilling than this one however). The fault in our stars was such a massive hit he is gonna have to go it some to compete with himself but I have a feeling this will be ace. I have already Pre-ordered it.
The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman – Whilst I still have not read all the His Dark Materials books I did read a sneaky first chapter of this online and it had me hooked so i cant wait. This i have also Pre-ordered and strangely they both come out on 10th October!
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead – This actually comes out in paperback in just two days time (29th June) so not too long to wait then. Every review of this has been nothing but brilliant so im looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about. Its a challenge to myself as its way out of my reading ‘comfort zone’ but fascinating nevertheless.
First Love by Gwendoline Riley – One of the Baileys Prize for Women’s fiction shortlisted books and the only one I really like the sound of. Its a shortish book but so many Booktubers have raved about it. Its published in paperback on 7th September.
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid – This book has one of the most stunning covers i’ve ever seen in hardback so here’s hoping the paperback cover won’t disappoint. (Are you listening Simon & Schuster?) Again its another genre not normally enjoyed but for some reason I just cant wait to read this. It comes out on 13th July so just over 2 weeks to go, YAY!
