I have a confession to make – I’ve never really been one to keep track of new releases. That all changes today. Thanks to my discovery of the order-by-publishing-date feature on Goodreads, I’ve realised that there are quite a few books I’m looking forward to that are being released in the next couple of months. Today, I’m here to share them with you 🙂
Also, full disclosure, I have no idea if the dates of publishing are actually correct, they’re just what I have seen on Goodreads and Google. I know, for instance, that sometimes books are published much later in Australia than in America, so don’t take this information as set in stone.
I’m not familiar with this author’s previous work, but this is a thriller centred around an author with a tragic past, so it’s got me interested.
A YA sci-fi that promises a race against time to stop two thirds of humanity being wiped out? Sign me up.
I have so far enjoyed every Becky Albertalli book I’ve read, so I am looking forward to this YA contemporary romance. I’m yet to read anything by Aisha Saeed, but Written in the Stars is on my TBR!
The synopsis for this one sounds so cool! There’s tattoo magic, a traveling theatre troupe and multiple instances of LGBT rep – what more could you ask for?
This book follows an American Muslim teen facing Islamophobia that is then framed for an act of terrorism. Based on early reviews, it sounds like it is going to be a powerful novel.
I am a sucker for Beauty and the Beast retellings, and this one is set at a boarding school, so I’m 100% in.
I read my first Simone St. James book – The Broken Girls – last year, and I loved it, so I am expecting nothing but great things from her latest, especially as it is set at a motel, a.k.a. one of the creepiest settings possible, in my opinion.
Tricia Levenseller is another author I first read (and loved) last year, and she said on Goodreads “If you want to read about bad people getting away with doing bad things while still being likeable and maybe falling in love, this might be the book for you!” so, it’s probably the YA fantasy for me 😛
“Can a girl who risks her life for books and an alien who loves forbidden pop music work together to save humanity?” is the tagline for this book on GR and as soon as I read that, I was sold. The cover is also stunning, and I can’t deny that helps!
I’m always looking out for YA mystery thrillers that are more on the serious side than the romantic side, and the premise of this one is so interesting – A group of teens are trying to unmask a criminal called The Gemini Thief that kidnaps boys for thirteen months before releasing them, unharmed.
I haven’t read many contemporary survival stories (mostly just dystopian ones), so this book is intriguing to me. A girl is lost alone in the woods and it sounds as though she is dealing with a lot more than just that.
This book sounds like it has a lot going for it – there’s an inn in our world that connects it to other, magical worlds, complicated family relationships, a mystery and maybe a little romance? I really hope I enjoy it!
This book is set in contemporary Ireland and apparently blends modern witchcraft with Celtic mythology. If that wasn’t enough, it features a bisexual main character dealing with OCD and a strained relationship with her mother. I’m super excited for it!
This thriller promises a hidden past, elite boarding school and mistrust between family members. I have pretty high hopes and I’m looking forward to reading it.
Another thriller! This one is about a bookseller that becomes heavily involved with the FBI after a bunch of murders take place that seem to be modelled off works of fiction.
I picked up Starfish by the same author last year, and devoured it, so of course I am planning on reading this book when it comes out. Especially considering it involves a circus!
I haven’t read Station Eleven by this author (mostly because I thought it was set during WWII, but now I am realising that’s not even true…), but I have heard so, so many great things about it. I’m hoping The Glass Hotel will be great.
So I’m not the biggest adult romance reader, but this book sounds way too cute and funny to pass on. It’s got the fake dating trope in an office setting, so I am sure it’s going to be good!
What do you think?
Are you thinking of picking up any of these books? Do you have other anticipated books coming out in February or March? Let me know!
