Top 5 Anticipated Pre-Orders for 2015

SO SO SO SO SO!!! THERE ARE NEW BOOKS COMING OUT OVER THE NEXT 5 MONTHS THAT ARE JUST EVERYTHING AMAZING IN THE WORLD AND I CAN’T EVEN!

Here are my Top 5-ish. I am going to pretend that I can’t count and that will be why there are more than five here. Cough.

Here. WE. GOOO!

On the 1st of September, 2015:

Top5 Queen of Shadows

This is legitimately one of my favourite series at the moment and I can’t wait to read more about Celaena. I feel like I have been waiting for this book for a bajillion years – which is a completely accurate measurement of time.

On the 8th of September, 2015:

Top5 Stand Off

JDGJKFGCVNXMCVIUSYJSKFOAISGJHDFJGFKHGDFGFPSGITUEJFDDVL!! <– This is the only way I am able to express my feelings about this sequel.  Just a tad excited.

On the 6th of October, 2015:

Top5 Carry On

Now I am not the biggest fan of Rowell’s – don’t get me wrong, I love her books and I am excited for this but I am not making inarticulate screeches because of it. I am hoping for a winner here.

On the 20th of October, 2015:

Top5 Career of Evil

Queen Rowling – as Galbraith – is back! I absolutely adore her crime novels and I can’t wait to mentally munch on this.

On the 3rd of November, 2015:

Top5 The Revolution of Ivy

These are my feelings:

On the 10th of November, 2015 we have two releases. TWO!

Top5 November 9

Yes. Yes…ALL THE YES!

Top5 Soundless

A new book by one of my all-time favourite authors? Put me down for 57. Thanks.

Top 5 Chapter Titles

THIS WAS SO FREAKING DIFFICULT!

I very rarely pay attention to these as they can be massive plot spoilers, or they are boring, and sometimes they are even misleading. Anyhoo. Rage over.

These are the Top 5 Chapter Titles from books… (it’s actually more like the ONLY five I could think of, but they are still pretty sweet.)

Number 5: Lord of the Rings

I watched the movies before reading the book so I fell in love with them there. It was amazing to see how faithful they remained to the book by naming the movies’ chapters after the book’s chapters.

CT LOTR

Number 4: Alice in Wonderland

Just quirky and cute. Nothing better.

Number 3: The Mortal Instruments

These aren’t always over the top and they usually don’t give anything away. I think these books (and any books by Cassandra Clare) are perfect.

CT TMI

Number 2: Harry Potter

I got shivers the first time I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone just from the first chapter title: The Boy Who Lived

CT Harry Potter

NUMBER 1: PERCY JACKSON

I have only read the first book but the chapter titles were amazing and hilarious and they slay me dead!

Top 5 Books I Will Never Read

Now these aren’t necessarily books I have hated, they are mostly ones that I have tried to read and they have failed to capture my interest for some reason –  or in No. 5’s case it has offended me with its terrible-ness.

1. A Clockwork Orange – tried it once and my brain melted. It was like reading a foreign language.

2. There is a very big possibility that I won’t pick up The Book Thief ever again as well. Zero intentions of finishing it as I did not find the storytelling to be that great, especially when compared to his other epic book ‘I am the Messenger’.

3. Most non-fiction books – fiction gal 4 lyf ✌

4. Most YouTuber books – really doesn’t float my boat. Physics floats my boat.

5. THE REST OF THE SELECTION SERIES AND ANY OTHER WORKS EVER WRITTEN BY KIERA CASS IN THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE AND ALL ALTERNATE UNIVERSES. The pain! Curse you books for being so pretty but frustrating.
