Hi, everyone! I am here with another Top Ten Tuesday post. This week’s topic is to share upcoming releases I’m on the fence about, whether it be because of negative reviews, overhyped, or maybe series I may not wish to continue.
Okay, let’s go!
The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
As of today this sequel to Truly, Devious is already out in the world, but I am hesitant to pick this up since I rated the first book 3 stars.
Courting Darkness by Robin Lefevers
I was very fortunate to receive an ARC of this book however I received it a bit late so I may not have time to read it by pub date. I’m nervous to start it mainly because I haven’t read its companion series and I am worried I’ll be confused. I hear you don’t *have* to read the first series so I’m hoping for the best!
Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian
I thought Ash Princess was pretty good but I don’t know if I LOVED it enough to invest time in continuing the series?
King of Fools by Amanda Foody
While I thought Ace of Shades was alright, I just didn’t love it as much as I expected I would. So right now I’m feeling pretty meh about continuing the series.
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Ok, I’m a huge TJR fan but two of my dear friends whose reading judgments I trust DNF’d it…so now I’m hella scared!
Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey
This rom com sounds super adorable, and I’m hoping it isn’t suffering from the case of “the synopsis sounded more fun than the actual book.” But I think I’m going to give it a chance because the early reviews sound promising!
New Orleans Rush by Kelly Siskind
Ah, this is another cute illustrated cover that pulled me in! The setting sounds really fun, but I’m on the fence about the whole “magician assistant” storyline.
The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai
I think this book sounds the most promising because it is ownvoices, enemies-to-lovers! I just haven’t seen any reviews for it yet.
Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
The premise of running a home renovation business sounds so cute! I just hope it doesn’t stray into problematic-body-shaming territory.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
I keep seeing my friends talk about this upcoming release, and the main character shares my namesake… so… I mean… I guess I should read it? Hahaha. But, really, it does sound quite cute!
Ok, let me know if you’ve heard anything good/bad about these titles, please! And if you’re interested in any of them, maybe we can try to read some together!
