Like always I don’t know how to make decisions and narrow down things so my Anticipated Reads for the second half of the year is going to be split into two separate posts! This post will be dedicated to Thrillers, Horrors and Contemporaries and my next post will be about Fantasies and Sci-Fis. It was actually hard to narrow it down to just this! I have a Goodreads shelf called “not available yet” which has all my anticipated upcoming releases so feel free the browse that!
Wreck by Fleur Ferris – [July 3] – I loved Black and this just sounds like another really fun thriller. A girl finds her house is ransacked and there’s a mysterious note left behind and some media mogul company is involved?
This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis – [Oct 10] – I’ve heard not great things about Mindy McGinnis’ fantasy book, but I adored The Female of the Species and I think contemporary is her strong point. A girl thinks she’s being possessed by the twin she absorbed in the womb. SIGN ME UP.
Bonfire by Krysten Ritter – [Nov 9] – I ADORE Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones ) and am so weak for thrillers so I am SUPER curious to see how this will be!!!
The Ravenous by Amy Lukavics – [Sep 26] – I think this focuses on a group of sisters. One dies and is brought back to life and she has to consume human flesh. Amy has said this ISN’T a zombie story, but cannibalism sooo. Daughters Unto Devils is one of the few horrors that has actually scared me so I’m looking forward to seeing what Amy comes up with in this!!
The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan – [Oct 10] – The main character and her friend are in a clan of Welsh Romanies and get brutally assaulted and she wants to do a spell to bring her friend back from death’s door and the spell needs things like human body parts so she goes after the boys that were the attackers. Hell yes.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins – [Sep 26] – I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG FOR THIS BOOK. I NEED IT NOW. I’ve really wanted to read Stephanie Perkins, but I have no interest in the Anna and the French Kiss series. Then I was gifted a beautiful gift because it’s like Stephanie Perkins looked inside my brain and took all my favourite thing and wrote them into a book. Basically, one by one students at this school are being murdered. I can’t wait.
Mirror, Mirror by Cara Delevingne – [Oct 5] – Even though I’m not into fashion I’ve followed Cara’s career for a while now. I’m just really curious to see how this will be? It sounds like a dark, coming of age so fingers crossed.
The Gallery of Unfinished Girls by Lauren Karcz – [Jul 25] – I’m not even sure how to describe this? It sounds super intriguing though and has hints of magical realism. This book also features a latinx queer MC.
All the Wind in the World by Samantha Mabry – [Oct 10] – I loved Samantha Mabry’s debut A Fierce and Subtle Poison so I can’t wait to see what she comes up with this! It’s about a group of kids who start new after an accident and end up on a (potentially cursed) ranch. There’s secrets ect. I think there might be a hint of magical realism.
Kat and Meg Conquer the World by Anna Priemaza – [Nov 7] – This is about 2 girls (one has anxiety and the other has ADHD) who are forced to work together and discover they have a shared love for an online gamer. It seems like it’s going to be about friendship and mental health!
The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed – [Oct 10] – One of my most anticipated reads for the second half of the year!! This is a look at rape culture and misogynistic behaviour and is about a group of girls who get revenge for the rape of one of their classmates.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera – [Sep 5] – Adam Silvera has become one of my favourite authors and the concept for this has me SO EXCITED. It’s all about two boys who meet each other on the day they’re going to die. I can already tell I’m going to cry because Adam Silvera loves to break my heart.
Are any of these on your TBR?
Stay tuned for Part 2!
I hope you’re all having a fantastic day.
