Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a new post. Today I’m talking to you guys about all of the hyped books I still haven’t read. I think we all have pretty big tbrs, but sometimes there are just some books we don’t get to because of the hype or simply just because our tbrs are just soo big.


Remember to click on the titles to go to the Goodreads pages!


FRIDGES FRIDGES ANWild BeautyANTBatman: Nightwalker (DC Icons, #2)ANTTruly Devious (Truly Devious, #1)


A book entirely about women with lgbt elements and magical realism. This everything I feel like I haven’t read in such a long time. I don’t remember the last time I read a book with lesbians in it so I am so hyped to finally read about lady love.

Also, women are brilliant and I need this now, please.


Okay, so along with Wild Beauty I do currently have this on hold at the library and I will hopefully be getting to it really soon. But, basically, I do think Batman is really interesting and reading about him as a child should be fun (is that the wrong word? I mean, everyone but Alfred is dead).


This seems totally up my alley and I want to read it for a blog post I am planning to write for you guys soon (get hyped, I’m so excited!!)

“New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson weaves a delicate tale of murder and mystery in the first book of a striking new series, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and E. Lockhart.”

Okay, so I don’t really care about E Lockhart but I love Agatha Christie and murder mystery books so this book sounds like exactly the kind of books I’ve been loving so far this year!


FRIDGES FRIDGES ANDark MatterANTSleeping BeautiesANTA Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)


A new fork-me-up psychological thriller? Yes please.

I have been screaming about this book ever since people started reading it and I even have the audiobook, so why haven’t I read it?? Honestly, I don’t know, maybe I just need a readathon or the right mindset or something??? Idk halp pls


I have never read a Stephen King novel because I’ve heard that some of his books are problematic and honestly, from what I’ve seen, his writing is boring and that his books only drawl on because often the plot doesn’t really get going until about halfway through or so. BUTTTT this is a sleeping beauty retelling which is co-written so I’ll give it a go.


I own the first two books so it’s ridiculous that I haven’t read this yet. Yep, I’m really feeling the reader shame now.

FRIDGES FRIDGES ANRenegades (Renegades, #1)ANTThe Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1)ANTWe Are the Ants



I loved The Lunar Chronicles & I did appreciate Heartless so I know that I enjoy Marissa Meyer’s writing. Hopefully, her writing mixed with superheroes should mean that I enjoy this book but honestly, who the hell knows. The cover does look cool though.


And again, I own the first two books in this series so I really have no excuse at this point. This is space opera that I have honestly heard only positive things about. So, why haven’t I read it? Pure procrastination, please hold me accountable.


Aliens and an lgbt main character. Yes, please.

Yes, I know I’ve had this in so many tbr style posts, I even own it in hardcover. Honestly, I think the only reason I haven’t read this is just because I don’t want to be let down. I really don’t want this to be overhyped.

  1. I own A Darker Shade Of Magic too, but have failed to read it. Also Dark Matter. Maybe I will pick them up this year. I hear great things about both of them.

    1. Yes, I feel your pain. It feels like everyone else has read it and I’m just over here in a corner trying to dodge spoilers. Dark Matter sounds amazing, though I think I need to be in the right mood for it.
      Hopefully, 2018 will be our year!

  2. Yesss girl so many of these I want to read soon!! I have Batman on my shelf so I’ll probably get to that one soon, but I want to read Wild Beauty, We Are the Ants and the Power too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes, they all sound so amazing! Batman sounds really interesting so hopefully, we both enjoy it! Yess, Wild Beauty, We Are The Ants and The Power all sound fantastic and I can’t wait to read it.


      1. I think I commented on another post, talking about Batman…isn’t that funny? Lol

        Oooh maybe we can do a buddy read for one of them. โค

        1. Yes, oh my gosh let’s do that! When do you plan on reading Batman? My copy just arrived at the library but I would love to do a buddy read if you’re on board!


              1. Yay, I’ll do that. ๐Ÿ™‚ The only things I have going on in February are the Contemporary-A-Thon which I think is the 12th-18th and then the 15th is my bf & I’s 2-year anniversary.

                Other than that, I’ll be good. ๐Ÿ™‚

                1. I’m cool with whenever, whether you want to read at the very start or end of the month. Have you done a buddy read before? Also, congrats on your anniversary!


  3. I’m totally with you on Wild Beauty. From all the reviews I’ve been reading it seems like it just may become a modern classic, especially with the relevant topics it introduces (LGBT) along with its fantasy elements.

  4. AAAAH I HOPE YOU LOVE ALL THESE SO MUCH. The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and Wild Beauty were literally in my top three of last year! and We are the Ants is the greatest too. AND A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC. THEY’RE ALL GREAT.

    1. Thank you, I hope so too! The Long Way & Wild Beauty both sound fantastic and I can’t wait to read them! I’ve heard mixed things about the writing style, how did you find it? Was the book hard to get into?
      I’m so glad you enjoyed We Are The Ants, I’m planning o reading it this year sometime. Also, A Darker Shade of Magic lol, everything just sounds so good!

      1. okay, full disclosure: I am totally biased about Wild Beauty. but the writing of that book was quite literally so beautiful it made me cry. actual tears. I have never in my life cried about fancy writing and I don’t think I ever will again? there were singular lines that made me feel connected to the characters in this indefinable way. I think I just remember the last 30% making me cry for around an hour feeling as if my life had been changed forever. Which I think is the experience of the 60% of the readership that gave it a five.

        I honestly don’t get the low reviews – yikes @ me being pretentious – but I’ve noticed a lot of queer and nonwhite reviewers seem to connect with it more? so there’s that.

        1. Wow, okay then you just gave e so much more hope for the book!! ๐Ÿ˜ That’s amazing that so many more people are able to connect with the book, that’s so lovely to hear!
          I’m so glad you loved the book so much! โค๏ธ โค๏ธ

  5. Iโ€™ve just started Truly Devious! Iโ€™ve not read a lot but so far I like the main character!
    I still have to read a lot of the books Iโ€™ve mentioned, though! I have We Are the Ants and Renegades on my TBR, so mayyybe itโ€™s time for me to read them๐Ÿ˜….

    1. I’m so glad you like the main character, I’ve been really worried that I wouldn’t like the main because I haven’t been liking YA mains in this genre lately. I am so hyped for We Are The Ants & Renegades but for some reason, I still haven’t gotten to them???

  6. Ohhh such a fantastic list, you have a great list of books to look forward to reading! I loved the ADSOM series so, so much, I hope you will just as well. Batman was such a fun book as well. I can’t wait to read Wild Beauty either, it sounds so great ๐Ÿ™‚
    Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed ADSOM, I really am hoping to get into the trilogy this year and get into the author’s writing!
      I’m glad you enjoyed Batman also, I’m hoping to read it in February! Yes, Wild Beauty sounds fantastic!
      Thank you, and to yourself! โค๏ธ

  7. I need to get to A Darker Shade of Magic as well, as I own the first book! ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t read anything by Schwab yet so it needs to happen ๐Ÿ˜ฎ This also reminds me of the fact that I have yet to continue with the Lunar Chronicles (I only read Cinder so far) ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. I know, it’s so popular but I keep avoiding it. I don’t want to be let down!
      Ahh, you need to keep going with TLC, it’s such a good series and has one of my favourite finales!!

      Liked by 1 person

      1. I feel you! I’m always very nervous about hyped books, because what if I end up not liking it? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
        The Lunar Chronicles are definitely on my Priority list, I just have to wait, because my library’s copy of Scarlet is still checked out – as soon as it’s available I’ll likely read it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I know, I honestly meant to get to it last year but time got away from me! Maybe we should do a buddy read later in the year?
      Yes, the library will be how I access most of these books, but, my mum actually gifted Small Angry Planet to me last year. We just can’t ignore a closing down sale, I guess.

  8. I have yet to read a single book by Victoria Schwab, but I really want to and every year she comes out with new stuff, so it’s even more daunting. I also wanna read We Are the Ants and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet.

  9. Ahhhh I haven’t read any of these books! I have far too many books on my TBR that are really hyped but I still haven’t read. One of the biggest would be ACOWAR, and any of V E Schwab’s books.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I know that feeling! I’ve heard amazing things about ACOWAR so I hope you enjoy it whenever you finally get to it!
      Yes, I have never read a V. E. Schwab book, but literally, all of her books are talked about positively ( I think they’re all pretty hyped) so that makes me really cautious to dive into her books.
