If any of you are Sarah J Maas fans, then I’m sure that you know 2017 will be a big year for her. She’s finishing off both the Throne of Glass series and the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I honestly don’t know what I’ll do. But other than those two novels, here are some books that I’m really looking forward to reading this winter/spring season.
1) Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I cannot tell you how excited I am for this book. SIx of Crows was amazing. The characters were so dynamic, and even though they might not have been the best people, the were still lovable characters. They all had endearing traits that really made you care about them. The story was also great (I’m a sucker for heist stories haha).
Some things I wanna see in Crooked Kingdom are:
– I want everyone to get together haha. Inej and Kaz, Wylan and Jesper, and Nina and Matthias (or at least for them to make up). I think this might not happen because their relationships are all so complicated and they have very different wishes, but my shipper heart would love to see this happen.
– I want Kaz to destroy Pekka Rollins. Like, crush him.
– Mainly, I just want everyone to be happy (this is a long shot I know)
2) Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I have heard so much about this book! Apparently it’s written in a very different style, like diary entries and different reports and stuff. After reading the description it seems really cool and I would really love to know more. Plus it’s sequel is already out, which would feed my binge-reading habit haha.
3) Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
I have loved every single book Clare has put out. Granted, books 4, 5 and 6 of TMI series were pushing it a little bit, but I adored The Infernal Devices. Jem, Tessa and Will stole my heart and I couldn’t take the ending. I could be wrong but I think Lady Midnight is a bit of a take off from a character in The Mortal Instruments, which would be really cool. I can’t wait to cry more over a Cassandra Clare book haha.
4) The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
I know, I know. I’m SO BEHIND! But I do have this in my home and hopefully I’ll get to it soon. I’m a little conflicted because I’d like to re-read the earlier books to remind myself of the other characters (other than Percy and Annabeth and Jason and that schtick). I love mythology (so much so that I’m getting a classics minor haha) and I really want to read his books about norse mythology. It doesn’t hurt that Rick is literally great and savage on twitter haha.
5) London by Edward Rutherford
I read New York by Rutherford and I loved it! The way he created a narrative was amazing, and I think that this is were I get my love of Historical Fiction from. Following fictional families down through generations is an amazing concept, and I can’t wait to read about London. From general history courses, I have a pretty good idea of what happened throughout London’s history, but I’m so excited to read about what the lives of normal people might’ve been like.
I’d also love to read more classics, like War and Peace, Les Mis, and (if I can handle another huge book) Anna Karenina. We’ll see what happens this summer!
Have a good day ducks!
