Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is: Upcoming Releases I’m On the Fence About (these are the books you need help deciding if they’re worth adding to your TBR or not.)
Ooooh, whoever came up with this topic knows the way to your girl’s heart: Help with indecision! Please do help, friends! Here are a few books I am on the fence about!
The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons ♦ Because okay do I like con artists and/or elite schools? Not usually. But I do like Kristen Simmons, and I really like the cover and sometimes that’s good enough. I will let you guys decide.
Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta & Cori McCarthy ♦ Sometimes I don’t like retellings. Fine, more often than not. Ditto wizards. And also, a few people I know were underwhelmed. But then we’re back to pretty covers and lots of good rep, so.
The Tesla Legacy by K.K. Pérez ♦ Okay this cover is unfortunate. Also, could it be too science-y? To the point where Shannon will be confused? But then, the concept sounds cool!
Beware the Night by Jessika Fleck ♦ I don’t even really have a reason, just that I kind of like the idea and I am kind of unsure about it. Do your thing, friends.
Never-Contented Things by Sarah Porter ♦ It does sound delightfully dark and messed up! But the reviews have not been kind so far. Even if it appears that Leigh Bardugo is on the cover.
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He ♦ Before you all raise your pitchforks, I want to fall in love with this! But is it possibly too high fantasy for me? The blurb scared me a little because there’s a bunch of magic and guys… someone just reassure me or something, yeah?
The Afterward by E.K. Johnston ♦ Pretty much ditto above. What the heck is a “godsgem” anyway? I don’t know if I feel like learning new stuff.
Hope and Other Punchlines by Julie Buxbaum ♦ I can’t decide if this will be too heartbreaking? Not heartbreaking enough? Send help.
Soul in Darkness by Wendy Higgins ♦ People seem to love this, and admittedly it sounds good. But… what if I don’t like mythology-based books? I mean, I am not saying I don’t, I am legitimately asking.
Tarot by Marissa Kennerson ♦ I genuinely have no idea what this is about yet I somehow kind of want to read it? Anyone who has want to give it a vote of confidence (or, no confidence as it may be)?
