My Top 5 Most Anticipated Book Releases

I know I’m a lot bit behind with my book reviews. Trust me I’m still keeping track of them and I’ll be posting each one within the next few days. I was just in a writing slump. Really that’s just me saying I’ve been a bit lazy the past couple of days but I swear I’m already on it. In the meantime, I’m sharing my top five most anticipated releases in the next coming months. These are the books which I’ve been salivating for some time now and been patiently waiting for to arrive. Most of these books are from my favorite authors and series, in no particular order. 🙂

Something Beautiful – Jamie McGuire (Aug. 18, 2015 US Release)

The Something Beautiful novella is part of the Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire. This is the story of the spunky America and lovable Shepley. From the early blurbs I’ve seen, this book will tell the story of that road trip which America and Shepley took right about the time the accident occurred in Eastern University, which prompted Travis and Abby to make that immediate trip to Vegas. For sure the fans of the Maddox boys will be delighted to sink their teeth into this.

Never Never (Part Three)  – Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

The third and final installment in the Never Never series, penned by two of the most amazing writers Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher was set to be released by summer (in the US). Although there’s really no set release date yet (as you can see they haven’t even released the cover for the final book), as both authors are also extremely busy with their own projects. Never Never is a three-part novella series following the lives of Charlie and Silas, best friends and lovers, sharing a unique and seemingly dangerous situation. For those who haven’t heard of this book, let me give you the short blurb about it:

Best friends since they could walk.
In love since they were fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember.
She’ll do anything to forget.

With that and the beautifully eerie book covers, I bet you’ll get really intrigued with their story. As for the fans, I think they’ll agree with me in saying that we’re extremely excited for the release of the final book which would give us answers to the tons of questions we have lined up. But for now, there’s no harm in re-reading Never Never (Part 1) and Never Never (Part 2) while we wait.

The Rest of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness (Oct. 6, 2015 US release date)

I’ve been a big fan of Patrick Ness ever since I read his Chaos Walking trilogy. I think it’s one of those understated series which will definitely blow you away once you start it. After that I read A Monster Calls which was equally moving. In his latest release Patrick Ness plans to wow us with his coming of age fantasy novel The Rest of Us Just Live Here. Check out more of the plot here.

Carry On – Rainbow Rowell (Oct. 6, 2015 US release date)

Originally a pivotal part of one of Rainbow Rowell’s best-selling novel Fangirl comes the fantasy novel Carry On. It’s the story of Simon and Baz. Want a better way to describe it?

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.

Fans of Rainbow Rowell are extremely familiar with Simon and Baz since we fell in love with them at the same time we fell for Cath and Levi. Here, we not only get a glimpse of Simon Snow’s world but we have the chance to get fully immersed in it. I’m looking forward to more quirky banters and quips and goblins and ghouls.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web – David Lagercrantz, Stieg Larsson (Aug. 27, 2015 US release date)

Lisbeth Salander is back in the fourth installment of the Millenium series. This time her story is told by David Lagercrantz, known for Ultimate High: My Everest Odyssey. There are a lot of issues surrounding the release of the fourth installment in this series, especially with the untimely death of Stieg Larsson. But as a fan of Lisbeth Salander I can’t help but also look forward to the continuation of her story. Definitely there will be expectations and of course differences in how Lagercrantz writes Salander’s journey, but that’s something I’m still positively excited to be part of.

Those are just some of the books which I’m looking forward to buy, Lord knows I have a lot on my list. Let me know if those made your list and share your other anticipated book releases.


The BookNut 🙂



Hello there! Thanks for stumbling through my little abode here. I’m self-confessed late bloomer voracious reader. Been doing a lot of catching up lately since I let me to-read pile grow a mile (a hundred miles) long. I’m in love with the written word although I have no formal training in writing. I just try to jot down random ramblings and thoughts in my mind before they escape me. My tastes in books aren’t discriminating, I can read almost anything with just a minor exception in the horror genre. Since I scare easily, I tend to back away from that. I read mostly fiction, from young adult, new adult (the older version of YA), sci-fi, thriller, mystery, action-adventure to of course romance (ahem smutty romance). I’m here to share my reviews for the books that I read. Share my thoughts about their authors and characters. I’m not here to blog about the technical aspect of it or give you spoilers (I hope not!) but more like give you insights about these various stories with the hopes that maybe I’ll be encouraging you to read them too. I hope you stayed long enough to get through this. If you did, then you’re the real MVP! Xoxo, The BookNut :)
