Lions are… tremendously scary. But for my most anticipated reads? All hell breaks loose! I’m getting that early copy, y’all. So, here’s a list of books I’d slay a lion to get early without a second thought!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where they assign a topic and then book bloggers post top ten list that fits that topic.
* I can’t believe I’m writing this today (Tuesday) at 7:05PM. Wow. Cram. Not to mention, I have piles of homeworks to finish tonight. Great.
- Descendant of the Crane by Joan He — one of my most anticipated 2019 releases is this! I’m so happy I finally got an eARC from Edelweiss+ last month (is it last month? i forgot) and I’ll be buddy reading it with some friends this Friday! I CAN’T WAIT TO DELVE INTO THIS BOOK AND JUST DEVOUR EVERY SINGLE WORDS WRITTEN. This is written by an Asian author and isn’t that just so… great?! YES!
- Finale (Caraval #3) by Stephanie Garber — Caraval series is seriously one of the best series written out there. All those magical things, the world, the characters, everything /here’s my heart take it/. But it’s making me sad that in just a few months, one of my fave series is ending. I’m actually having second thoughts since I kinda don’t want to have an early copy to read early and I also want to have so I can finally know what will happen to my lovely babies!
- Wayward Son (Simon Snow #2) — SimonBaz. That’s it. That’s the tweet. Kidding aside. But SimonBaz is the main reason why I would slay a lion just to get an early copy. I MISS THEM SO MUCH! Give me a bit of SimonBaz contentsand I’ll take it with all my heart. I just adore these two so much. Especially, Baz. Yes, I’m biased.
- Wicked Fox (Gumiho #1) by Kat Cho — My Kpop and Kdrama heart is shouting that I should read this book! My Girlfriend is a Gumiho is one of the first Korean dramas I’ve watched and it’ll be interesting to visit my childhood with a book that features it. It is set in Seoul which is one of my dream destination!
- Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay — I know this post screams ASIANNNN and I’m not even complaining. This particular one is a book set in my own country that tackles a relevant issue that can surely make my understanding wider. It’ll be an eye-opener read and I’m lucky to finally get my hands on the beautiful physical ARC copy from a blog tour (well, soon)!
- We Hunt The Flame (Sands of Arawiya #1) by Hafsah Faizal — The book cover is unjustly beautiful and stunning, how come?! Kingdoms, war, Ancient Arabia, quest, missions, and the long list goes on. Where can I sign up?
- The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad — I’M GETTING WEAKER AND WEAKER WITH ALL THESE ASIAN FANTASIES! Historical fiction, fantasy and Asian, together? Here, take my soul.
- Spin the Dawn (The Blood of Stars #1) by Elizabeth Lim — I’d probably die early with all these gorgeous covers. Girls disguised as boys, quest, fantasy, Asian, I’M LIVING THE LIFE Y’ALL!
- Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson — Sorcery. Magical. I’m weak!
- Wicked As You Wish (A Hundred Names For Magic #1) by Rin Chupeco — This one doesn’t have a book cover, yet, but I’m sure it’ll be mesmerizing. THIS. BOOK. IS THE. BOOK. A Filipino mc who’s a descendant of Maria Makiling sounds amazing already! Your Filipina blogger here is so pumped.
How about you? What are the books you’d slay a lion without a second thought to get early?
