Hello and welcome to part two of Feburary 2018 Releases on my TBR! We’ve got a lot of new books coming our way here and I’m hoping I’ll be able to catch up to March soon, so here goes!
I’m not sure what happened with this one, but I have a different cover than the one available on Goodreads and, to tell you the truth, I like this one a lot more so I’ve decided to just roll with it. Game of Secrets by Kim Foster sounds super interesting. Now, I wont say some of these elements haven’t been seen before, because they most definitely have. But it’s set in a different time period and I happen to absolutely love Victorian London, so that gives it a few extra pluses. I’m excited to see how this book goes cause it sounds quite wonderful.
I’m very unsure about Fade to Us by Julia Day. On the one hand, I really want to read it because diversity is extremely important, especially in YA, and this book has a character with Aspergers. I can only think of one book off the top of my head that I’ve read which has a character like this and I frankly believe that there should be a lot more. However, the story itself just sounds so utterly boring and I really don’t know if I’ll care about Brooke or Micah or their apparent romance whatsoever. So…I’m torn. And, for now, it’s on my TBR. But I don’t know. We’ll see.
The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross has he potential to be either really bad or really good and ultimately that is why it has found its way to my TBR. I’ve seen reviews floating around for this book on various blogs, though I have a strict rule that I don’t fully read reviews of books I’ve not yet read in order to avoid spoilers, so my knowledge is based entirely off the blurb. It definitely sounds like an interesting story with fascinating characters, but this is the sort of thing that comes down to creativeness and writing ability. I’ve not yet seen a sample of either for this book, so I don’t know how my read of this one is going to go.
An absolutely gorgeous cover and an absolutely enticing story. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of Your One and Only by Adrianne Finlay. Oh my goodness, this book sounds amazing! I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Honestly, the romance isn’t really all that surprising or interesting, but the world and the main character, Jack, is. I mean, how could I not be thoroughly interested in a book about the only human alive in a world full of clones after humanity has died off? I mean, honestly! I can’t imagine a more wonderfully intriguing book if it’s done well. And I just need it.
I am expecting vast amounts of pain and discomfort from All We Can Do Is Wait by Richard Lawson. A story about a group of Boston teenagers who all come together in a hospital’s waiting room after the collapse of a bridge, this book sounds like one massive emotional rollercoaster and I am right here ready to present my ticket for a chance to ride. There’s something extremely important about reading a book like this, understanding the way such an event can and likely will utterly rock someone’s world and leave them in a state of fear and disbelief. We never expect to be in these positions, but sometimes we are.
Feel free to drop your thoughts on the books in the comments! Do you have any on your TBR? Will you be adding some? Let me know!
Happy reading, everyone!
