Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year


top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of the Year 


1. You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour & David Levithan

you know me well

This dynamic duo author pairing will surely be a crowd-pleaser. I love their individual work, so I am very excited about this one!

2. Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King


I love this woman, and I will read anything she writes!

3. Pirasaurs! by Josh Funk


I eagerly await this book! I got my hands on an early copy of Dear Dragon, and it was just as great as Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast. I can’t wait to read Pirasaurs!

4. The Leaving by Tara Altebrando

the leaving

I love a good mystery and am intrigued by this cover.

5. Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia


I’ve heard this book is excellent, and it is right up my alley! I am very excited for its release!


I am so looking forward to King’s newest and Josh Funk’s two new picture books also! Here are some other upcoming novels (if I did picture books too, my list would be way too long!) I’m excited to read:

1. When We Was Fierce by E.E. Charloton-Trujillo

when we was fierce

This book reminds me of How It Went Down by Kekla Magoon and Tyrell by Coe Booth, both books which I love.

2. To Stay Alive: Mary Ann Graves and the Tragic Journey of the Donner Party by Skila Brown

to stay alive

I am fascinated by the Donner Party, and I love books in verse, so this one seems like a win-win for me!

3. Still a Work in Progress by Jo Knowles

still a work in progress

I cannot wait! First, why is there a hairless cat in a sweater on the cover?! Second, yay Jo Knowles!

4. Radical by E.M. Kokie


I loved Kokie’s debut novel, so I am very much looking forward to the follow up.

5. What Light by Jay Asher

This sounds so unlike Thirteen Reasons Why which really interests me.

Which books are you eagerly awaiting?

  1. I love A.S King and can’t wait to read Still Life With Tornado. And I’m weirdly into the Donner Party too! I read and really adored What Light- it’s like Hallmark Christmas movie in book form.

  2. What Light is on my list too. I’ve seen several of the ones you mentioned on NetGalley or Edelweiss. I hope you enjoy them!
