Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Freebie
This week is a freebie and as per usual (I always schedule the freebie over at TBTB for before BEA for this reason) I will be doing my top ten books I hope to bring home with me from BEA this year.
If you aren’t familiar, BEA is the Book Expo of America. It’s a big ol’ industry event –teachers, librarians, book sellers, publishers, bloggers, reviewers — and there are author signings and you are able to get galleys of books that are typically Fall/Winter releases. It’s book nerd heaven, really. If you aren’t an “industry” person but think this sounds awesome there is 2 days of Book Con after it which is open to the public.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: THIS IS LIKE MY #1. If I get this it will be a successful BEA trip. I love Susan and I love her Something Strange & Deadly trilogy so I cannot wait for this one.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken: Another one of the 3 top priority books (the one below is the other). TIME TRAVEL WITH PIRATES. CAN I GET A HELL YEAH.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: New series from Leigh (set in the Grisha world) that looks awesome! Game of Thrones meets Ocean’s Eleven!
Soundless by Richelle Mead: I still have not read the Vampire Academy series outside of the first one. I KNOW I KNOW. But I’m super excited about this — fantasy + Chinese folklore.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman + Jay Kristoff: High stakes science fiction set in the future!
Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid: I loved Adi’s debut Let’s Get Lost so I cannot wait for a new one from him!
Another Day by David Levithan: I LOVED Every Day and this is a companion to this that I’m SO excited for!!
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera: Love Adam and I’ve heard so much praise for this one!
Rules for Stealing the Stars by Corey Ann Haydu: I really don’t ever read Middle Grade but I will so I can read another book of Corey’s. Plus it sounds wonderful and THAT COVER THO.
A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston: 1001 Nights retelling!
