Top Ten Tuesday: Upcoming Releases I Am on the Fence About Reading

A weekly meme by That Artsy Reader Girl

I decided to take a little bit of a different tact for this one. Because it's not like there are books that I'm not sure about adding to my TBR. But there are books I want to read but I am not sure I will have the time to read. So that is the list you are all getting today, the books I want to read but am on the fence about because there are so many books and so little time.

1.) The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons - Add to Goodreads
I feel really bad about this one. I feel like every year I want to read a Kristen Simmons book and I always bump it because it comes out when a bunch of other highly anticipated books come out. But this one sounds so good, so maybe.

2.) Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller - Add to Goodreads
A Viking-inspired fantasy is a definite add to the TBR. But when the book comes out at the end of February I am not sure if I will be able to read it.

3.) The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon - Add to Goodreads
I love Samantha Shannon and this book sounds amazing but it's also incredibly long. I want to listen to the audiobook but I'm not sure I can devote the 45 hours it will take.

4.) Beware the Night by Jessika Fleck - Add to Goodreads
Asian-inspired fantasies are big right now and I am very interested in reading as many of them as possible. But that still means there will be a lot I don't get to read

5.) Bloodleaf by Crystal Smith - Add to Goodreads
This debut is totally up my alley. It's a fairy tale retelling with a mystery and an epic fantasy setting. But it comes out in early March and so do a lot of other books I want to read.

6.) The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala - Add to Goodreads
This is another Asian-inspired fantasy, this one I think is Indian-inspired. But again, I can't read them all and so I think I might have to skip this one.

7.) A Place for the Wolves by Kosoko Jackson - Add to Goodreads
This is one of the books on the list I am most likely to read because I actually have a review copy of it and it's a historical thriller with LGBT themes.

8.) The Hummingbird Dagger by Cindy Antsey - Add to Goodreads
This is such a me book. It's a historical mystery set in the 19th century and that cover is just gorgeous. But I don't know if I will be able to buy a copy. We'll see. I really want to read it.

9.) Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody - Add to Goodreads
I have heard really good things about Jessica Brody but I haven't been super interested in reading her books. But this one is sci-fi and I have been all about YA science fiction lately so maybe that will give me the push I need.

10.) Once and Future by Amy Rose Cepetta and Cori McCarthy - Add to Goodreads
This is a debut I am very excited to read. It's a lesbian King Arthur retelling in space. I hope I have the time to read it.

There you have it. All the books I want to read but I am not sure if I will have the time. Have you read any of these? Should I make sure I have time to read any of them. What books made your list? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. I'm looking forward to Warrior of the Wild. I understand your hesitation, though.

    This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  2. Yea, even though I didn't include it, I'm curious about Prior of the Orange Tree too.
