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


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks topic is Top Ten Books We’d Slay a Lion to Get Early

1 Smoke in the Sun

by Renee Ahdieh

AHHH! Book two to Flame in the Mist! I didn’t enjoy it as much as The Wrath and the Dawn, but I don’t care, I still liked it! I need to know what happens! This is a duology too right? Please say it is.


No lion wrestling for me over this one – I have been granted an ARC. Thank you Netgalley!!

2 Brightly Burning

By Alexa Donne

I was turned down for this on Netgalley and I was sad.
Ok so I haven’t read Jane Eyre yet and I’d of course read/listen to that first but this book would speed things up. But it’s a classic retelling in space!! What isn’t made better when you add the words “…in space.” ?!
Except maybe breathing….

Star-Touched Stories

by Roshani Chokshi

I NEED THIS!!! Because it has DEATH AND NIGHT in it and I haven’t been able to get this in the UK. Death and Night is their original story and I want to read it so badly!!!
And then there’s two more! One of which is set after A Crown Of Wishes.
I need this now please.

4 Blood Witch

by Susan Dennard

I was devastated when this wasn’t her third book, who cares about a prequel?! I want to read more about Aeduan! Now I have to wait till 2019!
There isn’t even a blurb…

5 Untitled Circle (Tris) Book

by Tamora Pierce

We have’t spent enough time in this world to my mind – and the last time we went there the book was SUCH a disappointment – so there is a lot riding on this one! Also, it’s Tris trying to fit in – she’s an anomaly, it’s got to be hilarious.
I also want the others to turn up all the time.
I also want them to all get their HEA, because we’ve been through several in Tortall and found none yet in Emelan….

6 The Wicked King

by Holly Black

I don’t think there’s a bookworm alive that doesn’t currently want to get their hands on this beauty. I’ve seen pictures of ARCs going around all over Instagram and I am green with envy! Why don’t I have a copy? How do I get hold of a copy? JUST GIVE ME A COPY NOW!!!

7 King of Scars

by Leigh Bardugo

Cover revealed YESTERDAY!!! If I haven’t added it it’s because I’m to busy staring at the gorgeousness of it. So excited for another series set in this world! But seriously… 2019? Are you taking the Michael? I can’t wait that long!

8 City of Ghosts

by V E Schwab

Easily one of my all time favourite authors. I need this like I need air…

9 Legendary

by Stephanie Garber

I really really loved the first book, Caraval, and I’m so happy I don’t have much longer to wait. It’s almost here guys! ALMOST HERE!!!

10 Spinning Silver

by Naomi Novik

I hope this is as good as Naomi Novik’s last book, Uprooted. If the cover is anything to go by I would say yes…
