For my last post on this blog, I’m going to mention the books that haven’t come out yet that I’m excited about. I don’t buy new books anymore, but I think it’s likely that I’ll make an exception for at least a few of these (#6 is definitely a priority.) Without further ado, here is my list.
I recently talked about the three books I wanted to read this semester, but I’ve since gotten rid of two of those books and the list is different now. So today, I’m going to do an updated version of that list, albeit for the entirety of 2018 instead of only this semester.
Furyborn by Claire Legrand // Two women, separated by a millennia, possess the powers prophesied to belong only to the Sun Queen, a queen of light and salvation, and the Blood Queen, a queen of destruction.
That’s my updated list of books I want to read in 2018! I’ve owned many of them (items 2-7) for years and want to read them before I stop being excited about them. Starting in May, I will only (or mostly) be reading books from this list; all other books need to wait until I finally get through these ones, which are the ones I am most likely to enjoy. We’ll see if this list goes better than the last one!
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. This week’s topic is Ideal Mash-Ups. This refers to existing pieces of entertainment that are paired up to explain the concept of another product. An example of that would be “Star Wars meets The Hunger Games.”
Anastasia + Furyborn = A story of an orphan with no memories who discovers she has powers that could save the world or end it.
The Diviners + Sense8 = A group of people with supernatural abilities are linked to each other and have to solve a murder mystery before it’s too late.
Lie to Me + Six of Crows= A group of morally gray people use psychology to solve murders while also causing chaos around the city.
Stranger Things + TheShadowhunters Chronicles= People with supernatural abilities are sucked into a different dimension and have to fight demons in order to survive and return home.
That’s it for my ideal mash-ups! These are probably not the main things I’d like to see in a book, movie or TV show; I completely forgot everything I might like while coming up with this list. But the things I could come up with would be really fun to read/watch. What is your ideal mash-up?
