There have been a lot of amazing releases this year, so far. Obviously, I haven’t been able to read them all, but I still wanted to talk about some of my favorites! There are a few I haven’t quite gotten to yet
(A Reaper At The Gates) so don’t think they’re not on this list because I hated them. I just haven’t had the time to read them (or I’m really afraid to read them, like with Reaper. Please Sabaa don’t hurt these characters anymore they need a break!) Also, I’m not including any books being released after June, I’ll make a different list in December or January covering all of those releases.
Okay on with the top ten!
Sidenote: I’m extremely indecisive so they aren’t in any particular order, with the exception of the first three probably being my top 3 reads this year.
I absolutely love to keep track of all the new YA releases. For the past few months, on my Tumblr, I have been making lists and graphics to keep track of what my Most Anticipated book releases are for each month. I plan to continue that here, but in the meantime, I thought I would share some of the past few month’s major releases!
[ UPDATE: I’ve edited this review since my initial posting, dropping the rating from a 4.5 to a 3 (and that’s me being nice). The more I think about this book, the more I realized how disappointing it is, and how unnecessary it feels. It was a money grab disguised as fan service. ]
Overall: 3/5 Stars
Plot and Themes: 2/5
Awesomeness Factor: 2/5
Review in a Nutshell:
A Court of Frost and Starlight is a fluffy, quick read that sets up the next book in the universe. It’s basically a filler christmas fanfic.
“I think my heart knew you were mine long before I ever realized it.”
So… I may not have done too well on my April TBR, but this month I’ll make up for it! (check out my April Wrap Up!) May is a crazy month for releases, but hopefully my horrible reading slump is ending and I’ll actually be able to get to them.
– A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas
– Allied by Amy Tintera
– Sky In The Deep by Adrienne Young
– Royals by Rachel Hawkins
– War Storm by Victoria Aveyard
