Waiting on Wednesday…

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. It’s time to share some exciting book releases coming out in March. Now I’ve probably missed some, but I have four books that I am definitely interested in checking out. One of these books I have already read and loved but I wanted to share it with out guys anyway. Now these are the release dates for the UK, so I don’t know releases dates for other countries. Let’s get started.



I’m looking forward to checking all these books out, and continuing on with the Song of the Shattered Sea series. Are there any releases you’re waiting for in March? There are two movies I want to see that come out in March too – Tomb Raider and Ready Player One. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.





Anticipated Films 2018

Hi guys I hope you are all well. Today I’m going to be talking about films rather than books, because there are quite a few film releases that I am looking forward to, so I thought I’d share some. So far there are 11 films that I am interested to see that are coming out this year. I might have missed some but these are the ones that I am aware of. I have linked to the trailer of each film (if available) for you guys to check out if you want to. Let’s get started.



I actually don’t go to the cinema that often so I probably won’t get to see these films until they are out on DVD but I’m interested in checking them out at some point. I have high hopes for quite a few of them. The ones I’m most interested in are Avengers, Annihilation and Tomb Raider. What films are you looking forward to? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

Anticipated Book Releases: Sept-Dec

We are now into the month of September and so only have four months left of this year. So I thought I would share all the books I am anticipating between September and December. There are so many books being released so I will have missed some but these are the books that I am interested in. I have 15 books to share with you so I won’t be going into details about them. That would mean we would be here all day and I’m pretty rubbish at describing synopsis anyway so… I have linked to all of the books Goodreads pages for your browsing pleasure instead :). Some of these books are continuations of series, while the others are standalones or the first in a series. I don’t tend to preorder alot of books, so only one of these is actually preordered but I am still incredibly excited for these books.Before I start, just a quick disclaimer that as these books are not released yet the pictures below were sourced from Goodreads. Onto the books.






  • The Burning Light / Bradley P. Beaulieu – Nov 1st – Goodreads page
  • Scrappy Little Nobody / Anna Kendrick – Nov 15th – Goodreads page
  • Scythe / Neal Shusterman – Nov 22nd – Goodreads page
  • Arcanum Unbounded / Brandon Sanderson – Nov 22nd – Goodreads page
  • To Capture What We Cannot Keep / Beatrice Colin – Nov 29th – Goodreads page


  • The Pale Dreamer / Samantha Shannon – Dec 6th – Goodreads page

the pale dreamer


As you can see there are some very exciting book releases coming up in the next four month. I want to also quickly mention Successor’s Promise by Trudi Canavan which is book 3 in the Milleniums Rule trilogy. However it still has no release date, so I am slowly losing hope that it will be released this year.  Anyway I am very happy it is now autumn :). Please let me know if you think I have missed any exciting releases and what you are most anticipating for the rest of this year. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.





TTT: Most Anticipated Books – 2nd half of this year


It’s Tuesday and I thought I would participate in this weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic. TTT is created and run by the Broke and the Bookish – you can find out more and check out their blog here.  This weeks topic is your most anticipated books for the second half of the year – I think this is such a good topic so I had to do it. Two of my most anticipated books are coming out in the second half of the year so I am very excited about the remaining months.There are so many books coming out that I have added some honourable mentions at the end. Lets get started.


The Emperor of the Eight Islands by Lian Hearn  – June 16th – This is set in a mythical, medieval Japan and I think is book 1 in a series. That is all I really know about it but I was sold when I saw the setting so I am excited to try this out. Also this cover is amazing.



17664893Age Of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan – June 28th – The first book in a new fantasy series. I love the Riyria Revelations series and Riyria Chronicles series by Sullivan so I was very excited to learn he has a new series coming out. I have high hopes for this book.




The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan – July 7th – Book 1 in a new fantasy series. I have been interested to try out Ryan’s books for a while and so when I saw this I was intrigued. Goodreads tells me it is an epic fantasy series with steampunk elements, full of phenomenal world-building and non stop action. That is all I really know – I also really like the cover.




 The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson – August 7th – This is the third and final book in the Remnant Chronicles. I enjoyed the first two books and so I am looking forward to seeing how this YA fantasy trilogy ends.




The Dream Quest of Vellitt Boe by Kij Johnson – August 16th – This one is a novella and to be honest I don’t really know much else, but I discovered Johnson this year and I love her writing – that it is by her is all I really needed to know. I am really excited for this.




Thorn of Emberlain by Scott Lynch – September 22nd – Book four of the Gentleman Bastard sequences. Although it can take me a little while to get into these books, once engaged these books are incredible! I am so excited for this new instalment and I highly recommend this series.




The Wall of Storm by Ken Liu – October 4th – Book 2 in the Dandelion Dynasty trilogy. I read the first book, The Grace of Kings, earlier this month and really enjoyed it. I am definitely interested to see how things progress in the second book. If you are looking for a new epic fantasy series with intrigue and sweeping battles than definitely check this out.



Goldenhand by Garth Nix – Oct 11th – Probably my most anticipated book (definitely one of my two most anticipated books), I think this is a continuation from the novella The Creature in the Case and will follow Lirael. If you have been following my blog for any length of time then you will know my love for the Old Kingdom’s trilogy and Garth Nix, so obviously I am excited for this book. Realistically I am beyond excited!




Hag-seed by Margaret Atwood – Oct 11th – This is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare series and is a retelling of The Tempest by William Shakespeare. Although I have only read two books by Atwood, what I have read I really enjoyed and I remember studying the play at school so I am interested to read this retelling.
Successor’s Son by Trudi Canavan – Unfortunately this doesn’t have a release date yet and no cover – I am hoping it will still be released this year. This is my other most anticipated book! It is the third and final book in the Millennium’s Rule trilogy.


Honourable mention – paperback version of The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss (November), With Blood Upon the Sand by Bradley Beaulieu, Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor (September),  A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers (October) and The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman (optimistically putting this on the list – no release date yet).


There are some amazing books coming out in the second half of the year, and I am impatiently waiting for all these books. I have probably missed some books as there are so many book releases but these are the ones I am most excited about. My question to you, is what is your most anticipated book for the second half of the year?


See you next time
