Welcome back to another edition of Top 10 Tuesday! Originally created and hosted by The Broke & the Bookish, Top 10 Tuesday now lives with Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week our topic is:

Top 10 Upcoming Releases I’m On The Fence About

1. Chains Of Gold by Cassandra Clare. Do I really want to get into another Shadowhunter trilogy? I’ve read TMI, I’ve read TID, I’m about to start on TDA at some stage. I sort of am getting to the stage where I feel if you’ve read one of these, you’ve kind of read them all. They just repeat various plots in different timelines with characters who are quite similar but have different names. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them, because I mostly do. I’m just not sure I need to read anymore? Although this cover is lovely. So we’ll see.

2. The Red Scrolls Of Magic by Cassandra Clare. Oh look, it’s more from this world. Cassandra Clare is really going at this for all that it has, isn’t she? The thing is, Magnus is actually my favourite character from the entire universe and this is about him so…… Although the blurb sounds a bit meh, I do quite like Marcus and Alec but I like them a lot more when they’re all angsty and having issues. I’ll probably read this before I read Chains Of Gold.

3. Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. I was on the fence about Carry On before it came out and I ended up enjoying it. I’m not sure I’m keen for more though. I also don’t know about this cover either, tbh.

4. The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh. I am actually behind reading this author. I’ve read The Wrath & the Dawn and really liked it and I still have to read The Rose & the Dagger as well as her other duology. I’m just not sure if I want to read about vampires.

5. The Testaments by Margaret Atwood. Do I? I don’t know! I’m probably going to have to.

6. I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella. I have to admit, I really like the sound of the blurb for this one – except the main character’s name is “Fixie” and that is ridiculous. Even if it’s a nickname. However, I have this weird relationship with Sophie Kinsella books. The ones I love, I absolutely adore. However the other ones……oy. And I never know what I’m going to get until I’m part way in. So every single time it’s a random draw.

7. The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. Okay, people have been singing Christina Lauren’s praises lately, the last few releases especially but I read a couple a little while ago and they really didn’t do much for me. Maybe they’ve switched plots a bit, and I need to give some of their more recent work a go.

Honestly, this is all I have this week. I don’t tend to be on the fence about a lot of books – I either want to read something or I know it probably isn’t for me. Sometimes I get sent books that I give a go, not thinking I’ll be super into them and sometimes I end up loving them. So often I’ll decide to read something on a whim not sure if I’ll love it or not but I don’t tend to look at lists of books and wonder if I’m so-so on them.

I try to surround myself with books I know I really want to read, rather than worrying about the ones I’m not sure about!

    I’ve started to feel that way about Sophie Kinsella’s books too.

  2. I’m a little wary of The Beautiful but I’m hoping with all these vampire books coming up that we’ll get something new and cool.

  3. Greg says:

    I do like Rowell but yeah I’m not sure about that cover for Wayward either. Not my favorite. And The Testaments… I may have to as well just because I’m so curious where’s she gonna take that story.

  4. I’m excited about Chain of Gold but I’m not really sure about Red Scrolls of Magic. I’m not really into Alec/Magnus but I know they’re not the only characters in the story. I feel the same way about The Beautiful. I’ll probably end up checking the latter 2 out at the library at some point, unless I find them on sale (I can’t pass up a good $1.99/$2.99 Amazon sale).

    I’m ridiculously excited for The Testaments. If nothing else, you could always read my review of it later on this year. (LOL!)

    This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  6. I hear you on #1 and 2. I love it when a favorite author keeps putting out books, but at some point, you need to move on. As much as I love Stephanie Plum, I’m grateful Janet Evanovich has started new series in new ‘worlds’, if that makes any sense.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    Oh, I’ve never heard of The Beautiful before and I love that book cover! I haven’t read anything from Renee Ahdieh yet but her books always look so pretty!

  8. Leslie says:

    Yeah,… I’m a bit skeptical about the new CC books! I mean… I love most of the Shadowhunter books but I’m worried.
