Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Hey Santa, Where’s This Book At?
There were many variations to this theme title. Really. I settled on this because it was the least angry sounding but any of theses books would be awesome gifts or stocking stuffers.
Subheadings and images link to their respective Goodreads.
The Infinite Sea: what the fuck is this filler-and-tomfoolery-nonsense?
The Last Star: ANSWERS. I NEED ANSWERS.
Such anger, much rage.
Urban fantasy has risen the ranks of being my favourite subgenre within the SF-F umbrella. With how Firefight ended, Calamity is going to be such a thrill of a read (or I’m just extremely biased because Sandy can do no wrong…ever.) MY HOPE IS THAT INDIGO SELLS IT THE BESTSELLERS RATE AND MARKS IT DOWN 40% OFF LOL.
I actually didn’t fully read the blurb for this book until recently LOL. I always just stared at the cover and thought “yes, sure, absolutely.” Then again, I do class the cover among others like A Thousand Pieces of You; which regrettable I still haven’t read…
Okay…to be fair, I’m currently reading an ARC of this book and even though I’m 1/4 of the way through, I’m diggin’ it because so much of is reminiscent to starting Avatar: The Last Airbender for the first time. Yeah, I went there. The hype, so far, has not failed me for this book. I mean, I can even overlook the potential love polygon that I think may happen…
If you didn’t already know: I rarely watch booktube. But once upon a time, Joey discovered a Canadian booktuber couple who go by Ermahgerdberks and I watched a few videos and this was one of the books they both enjoyed and recommended. Up until this point, I had no idea this book existed. Then I read the synopsis and yup, I needs it. Plus. middle grade has generally never failed me and the trilogy is done.
If you were to ask me two months ago that I’d be excited for this sequel, you’d probably get a: “lol wuut is this book even about??!” But now I just want to see Kell’s coat doing coat things. I know you do too.
I’ll probably have to wait for it to be on sale at Book Outlet again because these titles seem to cost so much :(!
I recently [finally] bought a hardcover of Half the World (haven’t read though) and just need book 3 in HC to round out my collection (and therefore I can binge the rest). If you haven’t read this book, the protagonist of the first book is basically young Tyrion Lannister minus the dwarfism.
A book before The Rest of Us Just Live Here, More Than This, Crane Wife, A Monster Calls, and Chaos Walking? Truthfully, 99% of me wants this book for the value of having everything Ness has written. But rhinos…
You probably have never heard of this book before. And that’s alright, because I’m here to pitch this 2015 title to you despite it being an AusLit title that’s actually very expensive and I’ve only seen ebooks of (which is still surprisingly expensive).
Mark is a Day Boy.
In a post-traumatic future the Masters—formerly human, now practically immortal—rule a world that bends to their will and a human population upon which they feed. Invincible by night, all but helpless by day, each relies on his Day Boy to serve and protect him.
Mark has been lucky in his Master: Dain has treated him well. But as he grows to manhood and his time as a Day Boy draws to a close, there are choices to be made.
Will Mark undergo the Change and become, himself, a Master—or throw in his lot with his fellow humans? As the tensions in his conflicted world reach crisis point, Mark’s decision may be crucial.
Want. TBH, I only found this author through a Patrick Ness RT where people were saying Jamieson = the Aussie Ness (although Ness himself says Jamieson = Jamieson, so there’s that.)
And lastly, either a Kobo, Kindle, or Tablet
I’m probably going to end up getting a tablet for sake of functional versatility but I’d love to hear your sales pitch for Kobo versus Kindle (because if I get a Kobo or Kindle, it just means I can get a new laptop instead). But my wallet cries, so.
But since pops told me Santa ain’t real…well damn
