I could not be vegetarian and vegan sounds even more horrific. I love animals, but there are boundaries… like food 😛 I love food. I just had this nice breakfast with boiled eggs, onions and bacon stripes and I’m happy :D. It was also horrifically caloric, but with the temperatures between -15°C and -20°C lately I feel inclined to eat more 😛 and I really don’t care. Did I mention I love food? Now I only need some coffee and I can start working.
That was the random thought for today brought to you by calories 😛
Anyway, it was supposed to be a Top 5 Wednesday post, so let’s get to it :P. Actually, I almost skipped this Wednesday as I don’t normally track recent releases other than my ARC’s, but I’m using it as an excuse to publish my random food thoughts :P. Yes, I’m kind of in a good mood and full of energy… for now.
I had to use the almighty Goodreads to check what books I might expect this year and it looks like there are few stories I’d love to grab right now! Oh, and I do realize today’s topic was supposed to be about the debut authors, but as I mentioned before, I simply don’t know what might show up and can’t say I’m excited about these books yet so it will be about the new releases overall, mostly from the authors I’ve read already.
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
I honestly didn’t give this book a thought until my mind finally realized that there’s an author’s name down there and what that name is! It took a random poster somewhere on the street. Even though I wasn’t really in love with Allegiant, I still liked this series enough to give another one a chance.
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
There are several reasons I’d love to read that (and I would already of not certain NetGalley restrictions) but main two are basically written on the cover :P. Somehow I find Norse Myths more fascinating than Greek or Roman (well… Loki) and Gaiman is just sooo good!
Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel
How could I not be excited for this book when the first one was so curiously exciting and fascinating! I really hope it won’t suffer from the sequel syndrome ;). I can’t wait to find out what will this mysterious manipulative agent think of again and what will happen to all these characters. Give it to me now!
Death of Dulgath by Michael J. Sullivan, Max Raynor
Look! there will be Riyria graphic novel! How awesome is that?!
Honestly, I don’t have much more to write about this one, I just want to read it 😀
Monstress Vol 2 by Marjorie M. Liu, Sana Takeda
And another second volume I’m excited for! I’d love to read about further adventures in this curious world and I’d love to see all these new, lovely graphics because you have to admit they are lovely 🙂
That’s it for now, let me know what books are you excited for? Maybe some actual debut authors that seem promising?
