Why is this year so full of awesome?
c.j.'s selections ten ten ten
|one||Heartless - Marissa Meyer |
Alice in Wonderland in any form is my longtime love and obsession. After Meyer kicked ass with her innovative, magical Lunar Chronicles retellings, I have no doubt she'll bring the Red Queen to startling life.
Crooked Kingdom - Leigh Bardugo
I'm still pouting after learning that it's only going to be a duology, but that doesn't lessen my excitement for the return of Kaz (aka the king of badassery) and his merry thieves.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - JK Rowling
Let's be real. NEW HARRY POTTER. Even if it's awful I'll still squee like a 14-year-old fangirl.
Gemina - Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
After Illuminae ripped out my heart and made all my sarcasm senses tingle, I have ZERO regrets about waiting in line 2.5 hours for an ARC of Gemina. It's going to own.
|five||Bright Smoke, Cold Fire - Rosamund Hodge |
Even though her sophomore novel Crimson Bound fell flat for me, Cruel Beauty is still one of my favorite fantasy novels of the last five years. If she can capture half of its beauty with her R&J retelling, it'll dazzle.
|six||Three Dark Crowns - Kendare Blake |
I mean, Kendare Blake. Three magical sisters battling it out. Give me all of this.
Nevernight - Jay Kristoff
Speaking of ARCs I would kill for. He had me at "city built of the bones of a dead god." Swoon.
|eight||The Reader - Traci Chee |
I'm so freaking excited for this awesome and totally underhyped book about a land without books!
|nine||Caraval - Stephanie Garber |
A fantasy world mixed with a giant deadly magical game is pretty much the coolest thing ever, plus the cover is sooooo pretty.
|ten||Into White - Randi Pink |
A black girl in a mostly white school wishes desperately that she could just be white, fit in. But getting her wish isn't anything like she expects. SUCH a cool and edgy premise.
