Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early

Some of these books I’d probably go crazier over than others, but I’d definitely love to have ANY of them early. Do we have any in common? Or did you find something new to wish for? Let me know in the comments! These aren’t in any particular order, by the way!

10 Books I'd Slay a Lion to Get Early - #toptentuesday #bookbloggers Click To Tweet

Number 1: What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli – add on Goodreads 

  • I love both of these authors, so a book they wrote together? Give it to me now!! It comes out on October 9th…ugh, too far away.

Number 2: Lethal White by Robert Galbraith- add on Goodreads

  • Guys, we only have a title for this one! But in case you don’t know, Robert Galbraith is actually J.K. Rowling and this would be the fourth in her Cormoran Strike series (I LOVE the first three and I’ve been dying for more!)

Number 3: The Shimmer by Carsten Stroud- add on Goodreads 

  • A killer that can go back in time? Sign me up! Thankfully, this comes out on June 5th so not too long now!


Number 4: Find You in the Dark by Nathan Ripley- add on Goodreads 

  • A guy whose hobby is digging up murder victims? Um, say what now? I need to know more! This one comes out on June 19th, so not too long to wait either!

Number 5: The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee- add on Goodreads

  • I LOVED A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, and this is a companion novel about Monty’s sister, Felicity. Yay! It comes out on October 2nd…sigh. Come soon, October? You’re my favorite!

Number 6: An Assassin’s Guide to Love and Treason by Virginia Boecker- add on Goodreads

  • Treason, murder plots, Shakespeare plays! Count me in! Another October release…this time October 23rd.

Number 7: Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) by Lev A.C. Rosen- add on Goodreads

  • How fierce and fun is this cover? There isn’t a long summary yet but it does say “unapologetically sexually active gay teenager” and I’m all about that! This one comes out on October 30th!

Number 8 Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco- add on Goodreads

  • The first two books in this series are amazing, and I cannot wait for the third! This one comes out on September 18th, so at least it’s not October, right?

Number 9: Firestarter by Tara Sim- add on Goodreads

  • No cover for this one yet either, and it’s release date is January 9th 2019, but I do still need to read the second book in the series. I’m sure I’ll love it though since Timekeeper was amazing.

Number 10: #Murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil- add on Goodreads 

  • You can now live stream the executions of convicted criminals…interesting concept, isn’t it? This one comes out on on August 7th!

  1. I am actually dreading what JKR has in store for Lethal White, bc I need Cormoran and Robin to sort themselves out bc my heart cannot take it LOL! FDind You in the Dark is just all sorts of creepy but so good at the same time! Great list Lauren!

  2. Hahaha I love the title of this post! It is so fun seeing all the lists for books to come out this year. Sounds like you have some good ones on your radar.

  3. I hadn’t heard of any of these yet! I’m always on the lookout for new reads! I’m going to the library after work today although I know these won’t be there yet, I still can’t wait.

  4. I am really looking forward to Escaping from Houdini as well. And I need What If It’s Us too. I don’t know how to prepare my heart though. Adam Silvera is known for his gut-wrenching novels and Becky Albertalli for her light ones. I don’t know what to expect!

  5. Ahhh what an epic list! I’m SO keen for Firestarter too! (Says me who hasn’t read Chainbreaker yet lol lol but I swear I’ll get to it soon!) And also The Lady’s Guide because Monty and Felicity are my FAVES and I can’t wait to read more about them. 😍Also What If It’s Us can’t come soon enough ahhh!!

  6. “Lethal White” by jkr needs to be added to my list too. Thanks for keeping us all up to date on the what and when to be published! Thanks God you do this so well. I have no time for myself lately and I truly miss reading! This gives me the push I need.

  7. I’m so behind in my reading. There is about two years worth of stuff waiting for me on my shelf – that being said, I’d sure do a lot to get my hands on the next Game of Thrones book if it ever gets written #happynow

    Wow there are a lot of good ones here! I didn’t even know about some of the series ones. Thanks for sharing!
