Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year

*in no particular order

**Okay for me this is from July-December!! Going to pick ones that I don't have review copies of either, just to make it really anticipated!!

1. CRYSTAL STORM by Morgan Rhodes--I adore this series!! SO MUCH! I still need to read Frozen Tides, BUT I was trying ever so hard to save myself from the pain of its cliffhanger! I'm 99.9% certain there's a cliffhanger that will kill me. Again.
2. ARCANA RISING by Kresely Cole--YES! It's almost here!! Book 4 is on its way!! And there WILL be a REAL book format too! Amazon already has it up for preorder, so that's what I did last week!
3. THE BEAUTY OF DARKNESS by Mary E. Pearson--omg! SOOO need this one!! I don't think I was one of the lucky 50 on Netgalley as there was nothing new for me on my dashboard. :(

4. POOR UNFORTUNATE SOUL by Serena Valentino--I still need to read the Evil Queen and Beast's stories but these are just soooo cool!! I read Maleficent a long time ago and enjoyed that, so I suspect these other three will be incredible too!
5. BETRAYALS by Kelley Armstrong--loooove this series! It's so creepy and weird!! Just my kind of read!
6. THE MERCILESS II by Danielle Vega--wasn't expecting a sequel to this one but now I am super excited for it!!

7. INTO THE FIRE by Jeaniene Frost--YES TO MORE VLAD!! This is is last book :( but I sooo can't wait to see how it ends!
8. FOREVERMORE by Kristen Callihan--so sad to see this series ending too! It's what introduced me to historical paranormal romance! Lol! A fun genre to say too!
9. MIDNIGHT HOUR by C.C. Hunter--YAY! Miranda's book is on the horizon!! Cannot wait for her story! Or to see who she chooses! Darn love triangles again, but for whatever reason it doesn't annoy me in this series! All the girls had one ironically!

10. TORN by Jennifer L. Armentrout--It's. Almost. Here. IT'S ALMOST HERE!!!! It comes out July 19th! I AM SO EXCITED!! :D



  1. Wuuuaattt?! Poor Unfortunate Soul?! I need to check this out!

    Btw, interesting teaser. It makes me wonder what made her day "strange" when she already lives in the magical world.

    Vonnie's Teaser

  2. That teaser got me curious! Hope you're enjoying the read, it sounds like one I'd like :)

    Thanks for sharing, here's my TT!

  3. Ooooo! Your teaser is so amazing! I am wanting to know so much more about this magical slum. So intriguing and that cover is so interesting. I hope that you are enjoying it! :)

  4. A really intriguing teaser - and looking through your Top Ten list, I spotted a Kelley Armstrong series I haven't been following and... Poor Unfortunate Soul - really??? That's one I also need to check out! Many thanks for sharing. This is my TT

  5. I am waiting for Midnight Hour, Torn and Forevermore (that one is due to you) as well.

    Great teaser, haven't read this book but it looks good.

    Christina @ Books & Prejudice

  7. Love the cover and teased for Cursed Moon.

  8. VLAAAAAAAAAD. I'm going to miss him, but I'm SO excited to see how he and Leila get out of this mess they're in. :) Thanks for checking out my TTT!

  9. I know, Betrayals can't get here soon enough huh? I love that series as well. Have you started her new series yet - City of the Lost? I have it on reserve at the library when it finally gets returned.

  10. Love the teaser. Quite a few of your anticipated books are also ones I'm waiting for. My teaser this week comes from The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig. Happy reading!

  11. Nice teaser! Not my kind of read, but "magical slum" does sound intriguing. Enjoy!

    Here's my teaser from a vintage Sharyn McCrumb mystery

  12. Crystal Storm! I am dying to read that book! My TTT.

  13. Crystal Storm! I am dying to read that book! My TTT.

  14. What the hell is this Ursula book! And what am I reading there!!! Disney villain books? WHAT I have to look this up I need to read this omg, I love disney villains!

    - Jen from The Bookavid

  15. Great list! I've never heard of that Ursula book before. I'll have to try it out! Here's my TTT: http://rabbitearsbookblog.blogspot.com/2016/06/top-ten-tuesday-29-top-10-most.html

  16. Huhhhhh I hadn't heard of Poor Unfortunate Soul before, have to go look at the other books :D Thanks!! Also can't wait for Vlad's book!

  17. Nice list. I haven´t read any of the books that you mention but I´m planning to start reading Kelley Armstrong series this year.
    Here is My Top 10 Tuesday

  18. I have Cursed Moon and really need to get around to reading it soon. Great picks for your top 10 list. I am so ready for more Vlad!

  19. Is it me or did Arcana Rising take FOREVER to come out??

  20. YES!!! So many amazing books this year! We have a couple in common (obviously)! I'm so excited for The Merciless! It comes out SO SOON!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  21. I'm curious about Torn. I read Wicked last year, and enjoyed it, but it wasn't my favorite JLA book. Hopefully the sequel will be better.

  22. I NEED to read The Kiss of Deception already since the series is about to end!! and I've read good things about it...

    czai @ the Blacksheep Project

  23. Thanks for visiting my blog! I keep seeing The Beauty of Darkness. The cover is fabulous so I'm going to have to search out the first book and give it a try. I'm a sucker for a cool cover. Enjoy all of them when they come out!
    Laura :)

  24. I have Wicked, but I can't decide if I should wait to read this series until all three books are out, especially since it took us a year and a half to get Torn. I'm surprised it doesn't have a cover yet!!

    Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

  25. I still need to finish C.C. Hunter's books. I've read like the first 2 or 3 in her main series. I enjoy love triangles, so that doesn't bug me at all. I still need to read the Kiss of Deception, but I'm pretty upset at myself and the 2nd book because I read the description for the second book and spoiled myself! It made me want to cry. I wanted to experience the book without know who the assassin was.

  26. So you're forcing me to add to my fairy tale retellings list by including a book from the Villains Tales series. It's renewed my need to buy and read them all. :D

  27. So excited for more Vlad! Cannot wait to see how their story wraps up.
