Do you ever buy books? Because I have. A lot. And now I’m thinking I have once or twice too many… You guys seemed to like it when I did this last time, so here is my complete TBR pile (for the moment) and my expectations/predictions of each one! Hit the follow button to keep updated on whether my predictions are (remotely) correct. Have you read any of them?
Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
I don’t know if this is going to be an All the Bright Places masterpiece… or another girl falls into boys and then falls in love, both with some sort of tragic backstory
Dune by Frank Herbert (borrowing)
I’ve already done a longer prediction for this book here. I’m thinking space worms?
The Fever Code by James Dashner
4 years ago, I read the Maze Runner, fell in love and totally forgot about it. I’m excited to finally read this new addition, although it’s going to take a while to reread the entire series ugh.
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
Short stories aren’t normally my go-to, but if Leigh Bardugo wrote a telephone directory, I’d read it. I’ve flipped through The Language of Thorns a few times, and the illustrations are beautiful. Plus, the dedication is a Labyrinth quote, so it’s my new favourite.
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare (borrowing)
It’s been no secret I hated the first three Mortal Instrument. But apparently I need to read them all in publication order (my friend is adamant about this) and I want to do it properly to appease booktube. However, I have higher hopes for these three, the Victorian London setting sounds cool. But mainly because Clary isn’t in it.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I do it by the book. I’ve been told Clare’s writing improves as the series progresses, and all I’m going to say is that IT HAD BETTER!
The Taming of the Tights by Louise Rennison
Yes you read that title correctly.
The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett
Have a look at this book. It looks amazing – a really interesting premise (plus you can’t argue with an Amazing bestseller). I have high hopes!
The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
When you search this series, it comes up with a very cool horror movie. Which, on further examination, is nothing to do with the book series. I think this series will be a nice break, even if it’s for younger audiences. The title at least is intriguing.
I wonder if I got any right?
