Top 5 Most Anticipated Releases For The Rest Of The Year

Long title much?

I have a feeling I’ve already discussed my most anticipated releases but hey no harm in repeating myself, plus the titles I’m about to mention have scarcely been discussed on the blog. That’s right, they’re exclusive.

NOTE: Goodreads link in the title of the book

5  MAGNUS CHASE AND THE SWORD OF SUMMER 

Author: Rick Riordan

What’s it about?

Vikings basically. If you’re a fan of Percy Jackson or any of Rick Riordan’s stuff then you get my excitement. I cannot wait to become a prodigy at Norse Mythology now

4 SOUNDLESS 

Author: Richelle Mead

What’s it about?

The title literally gives it away. It’s about a girl who lives in a village where there is no sound. So they’re all basically deaf, which is going to be so interesting to read about. And I think it’s Chinese in nature? yay

3 DUMPLIN’ 

Author: Julie Murphy

What’s it about?

A self-proclaimed fat girl who enters a modelling competition. I think it’s going to be a great read about self-image and being comfortable in your own skin, all that good stuff.

2 QUEEN OF SHADOWS 

Author: Sarah.J.Maas

What’s it about?

If you’re keeping up with the times (likes I am jk) this is the fourth book in the Throne of Glass series. I cannot wait to see how the series ends and I’m sure this is going to be an action packed read

1 WINTER

 

Author: Marissa Meyer
What’s it about?
This the final book in The Lunar Chronicles. It’s basically a fairytale retelling of Snow White but set on the Moon. If that doesn’t grab you in then I don’t know what will

I hope you discovered some new books to be excited about! Let me know in the comments any new releases I should get hyped about!

Top 5 Favourite Books Of The Year So Far

o-INFINITY-facebook

Yay we’re almost halfway through the year “panics”

In terms of reading this year has been really good to me, I’ve discovered some amazing new authors and surprisingly there hasn’t been one book I seriously regret reading. So that really says something I guess

Without further ado these are my favourite books of the year so far. The titles will have links to my review of the book.

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven 

I believe this is possibly going to be one of my favourite reads for the year. It made me feel all the feels and that should be enough to get you reading this book RIGHT NOW

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood 

Okay so this is like one of those George Orwell messes-with-your-brain kind of books. It explores oppression in an interesting way and what I love about this book is, it makes you think. It makes you think about the world we live in and yeah.

Heir Of Fire by Sarah.J.Maas 

 

This takes Young Adult fantasy to a whole new level. Action, suspense and the most unexpected ending this is literally my favourite Throne of Glass book.

I was here by Gayle Forman 

This was my first read of the year. It was eye opening really about the after effects of suicide and the people you leave behind. It also had the best romance.

We All Looked up by Tommy Wallach

Unlike anything I’ve read. Post apocalyptic, music centered and philosophical, it had a good mic of everything.

I highly recommend you go check out at least one of the books I mentioned in this post.

Meanwhile tell me what your favourite read of the year has been?

Top 5 Wednesday | Futuristic Books

o-INFINITY-facebook

Yay Future

Well I don’t read many Sci-Fi books so I’ll just discuss the 50 000 Dystopian books I’ve read over the past three years.

5. The Host by Stephanie Meyer 

I read this WAYY back in the day so the details might be a little fuzzy.  But I found the whole psychological aspect of it really cool and it has some weird romance lemme tell you that.

What’s so futuristic about it? 

So basically Earth is invaded by this alien species who take over human minds (fun!)

Would I want to live in this world?

Of course not. I’m not judging if you want your mind to be tapped into but I’m not good with sharing space so.

4. 1984 by George Orwell 

This was my first book review on this blog! it’s crap but meh. 1984 looks at some very interesting concepts and it’s so chilling to realize the accurateness with which George Orwell was able to predict our lives now.

What’s so futuristic about it?

Except from the fact that the whole book screams FUTURE. But yeah this creepy dude called Big Brother invades everyone’s private space and takes over your life.

Would I want to live in this world?

This is looking pretty bad for Futuristic books but Ill pass on this one as well. Seems pretty oppressive if you ask me.

3. Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu 

I always feel like this series is so under hyped. How do you like the sound of a prodigal protagonist who is also a badass, a murder mystery and some of the most painful romances? READ IT

What’s so futuristic about it? 

It’s basically Dystopian America in ruins and omg the third book features Antarctica whose setting was done so masterfully!

Would i want to live in this want?

Yes since it doesn’t seem too different from the world right now except this deadly plague is spreading but I’d like to be a rich person in this society so I can avoid the plague and go live in Antarctica.

2. The Fifth Wave 

This books gives a pretty accurate representation of what would actually happen if there were to be an alien invasion on Earth. It is thrilling, intense and gory just the way I like it!

What’s so futuristic about it?

It’s set in Post-invasion America and there’s all this advanced technology

Would I want to live in this world?

Heck no! this is the worst one of the lot. Let’s be real I’d probably be dead just by thinking about this world.

1. The Lunar Chronicles 

I’m reading the novella Fairest right now which has left me on a Lunar Chronicles high that’s why this is number one! But seriously fairy tales but futuristic! the world building is amazing honestly.

What’s so futuristic about it?

Robots and hovercrafts and actual travel to the moon and an actual colony on the moon and ahh everything everything is futuristic.

Would I want to live in this world?

You know it doesn’t seem like such a bad world after all, I mean jobs would involve fixing your Android (robot) or delivering vegetables through hovercrafts and yeah ‘satisfied nod’

I hope you enjoyed looking at some of my favourite futuristic books. Let me know yours in the comments!
