Since I have no self control when it comes to books, I tend to buy them immediately upon release. My Top 5 Most Recent Additions to My Wishlist are all books that are coming out in the next year and I’m super excited to get my hands on them!
First up is When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore. I read her first book The Weight of Feathers last fall and fell in love with her writing and mastery of magical realism. This new one sounds just as emotional and enchanting and I cannot wait to read it!
Next up is Nevernight, the first installment in a new trilogy from Jay Kristoff. I fell in love with his writing, first in the Lotus War Trilogy, and then in the Illuminae Files and everything about this new story sounds freaking amazing. School for assassins, enroll me now!
The only book on this list that’s a new to me author and debut is Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill. Everything I’ve heard about this story has been rave reviews and with a stunning cover and an intriguing premise, I’m hoping to love it just as much.
Heidi Heilig’s sequel to The Girl from Everywhere was always going to be on my list but when she announced the title, The Ship Beyond Time, and the cover I was ecstatic. I cannot wait to delve back into Nix’s world and swoon over Kash again and again.
A Crown of Wishes, Roshani Chokshi’s companion novel to the excellent The Star-Touched Queen, definitely had to be in my Top 5. We get to follow Gauri, Maya’s younger sister, and discover her story. I’m ready for more of Chokshi’s brilliant writing!
So what are some of the titles you recently added to your wishlist? Let me know in the comments below! I’m always looking for more books to read and buy!
