The Waiting List is a feature hosted by PrintedWordsAnd, where I list some upcoming releases for the month that I'm most excited about!
March 2017 Releases
1. Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell
Very Throne of Glass like, but I guess that's why this has enticed me. Rose is a slave who has found an opportunity to escape, but she finds herself being part of a rebellion plot and now she needs to figure out where her loyalty lies.
2. Seven Days of You by Cecila Vinesse
Sophia has 7 days left before she leaves Tokyo to go back home. When Jamie, her ex, arrives in Tokyo the 7 days she has left is a test to their relationship. I don't know whether it's because I'm going to Tokyo and it's set there or because it takes place over 7 days so I'm expecting it to be intense and fast paced, but we will see!
3. The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz
A contemporary about finding yourself, after being so sure in life before being confused and lost. Saenz wrote the amazing Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe series so I'm really hoping the writing will be as fantastic in this contemporary.
4. The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui
I relate to this so much being a child from a refugee family. This is a graphic novel that relays the tremendous sacrifices and efforts put into seeking a new life for your own family and the consequences it may leave on you.
5. The Song Rising (The Bone Season #3) by Samantha Shannon
The third part to the epic fantasy that is now widely known within YA. I better hurry and read the second one first!
6. The End of Oz (Dorothy Must Die #4) by Danielle Paige
Again, another sequel where I'm only on the second book - eep. But I did really enjoy the plot of this series as it is such a bizarre but fascinating adaption to the Wizard of Oz.
7. The Heartbeats of Wing Jones by Katherine WebberWing idolised her brother Marcus, much like everyone else in their town, but when he drives drunk and ends up in accident that kills two people, she has to learn to cope with her brothers decisions and the effects it leaves on the people around her. Very, very deep.
8. Nemesis by Brendan Reichs
Yes to thriller! Nemesis is introduced as Orphan Black meets Lord of the Flies, which sounds epic already. A girl constantly dies on the day of her birthday but wakes up with no evidence of it struggles to discover what is actually going on in her life.
9. Lola by Melissa Scrivner Love
This is Adult thriller, where the leader of the gang is actually Lola, the supposed leader's partner. She controls their movements and I am so in this because it is a female protagonist who is pulling the rings - despite committing crime.
10. Strange the Dreamer by Laini TaylorI'm fairly sure this is on everyone's list for most anticipated release of the year, let alone March. I am so excited because Taylor wrote one of my favourite series and I am expecting so much from this.
