10 super hyped books I need to read asap

10 Super Hyped Books I Need to read ASAP

It is a fact well known that you will never finish your entire TBR.

If you’re an avid reader, you’ll probably find at least two more books to read before you finish your current read. There are way too many good books coming out for us to keep up.

I’ve been especially feeling the trouble recently because there are a few books that pretty much EVERYONE is talking about and they sound amazing. But I’m also trying to read books from my existing TBR and also finish a reading challenge! Too many books to read, too little time.

This list is mainly for me to keep track of books that should be high priority for me as soon as my exams end. I already started reading romance because exams are stressing me out and I can’t handle these books right now, but I WILL get on them after! People manifest dreams and success, I manifest my reading.

The Dragon Republic

The Dragon Republic by R. F. Kuang

I read The Poppy War last year and LOVED IT. This book was already out by then but I wanted to read some light-hearted books so I put it on hold. And it’s been on hold ever since. Now that The Burning God is coming soon, I NEED to get on this book. It doesn’t help that several bloggers whom I follow read the books recently and are shouting for everyone else to get off their asses and read them too.

Although I’m not getting personally bullied by other bloggers to read the book (a few bloggers are doing it to their friends haha) so… I may procrastinate on it a little bit? I don’t know. Someone bully me to read it!

the bone witch cover

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

I first came across this book through Shealea on Twitter where she was heavily championing this book. On her recommendation, many people started reading the book and also started raving about it. Most recently, Vaish who is a close friend of mine read and praised it. Everyone’s reading the book/series and proclaiming themselves to be Chupec-hoes (coined by Shealea) and I want to join this club!!

A Song of Wraiths and Ruin

A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanna A. Brown

I’ll be honest, this book didn’t intrigue me the first few times I saw it/heard about it. I came across it when I was not in a fantasy mood and I wasn’t even thinking about future reads. But this book has been consistently showing up in front of me for several weeks now. Time to finally cave in and add it to my TBR. I have to know what’s so great about it.

wicked fox

Wicked Fox by Kat Cho

Okay so this book has been on my TBR for AGES. I’m not kidding. I’ve had the book in my Kindle shelf for at least several months now! It first intrigued me because of it’s gorgeous hardcover cover. Then, I found out that it’s based on the Korean nine-tailed fox myth. A reviewer I know compared it with the Kdrama My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox because of the similar theme. I haven’t watched the Kdrama either so I’m curious about that as well.

Among all the books, this one has a higher priority along with The Dragon Republic as they’ve been on my TBR for the longest.

hunted by the sky

Hunted by the Sky by Tanaz Bhatena

Y’ALL. THE PROMO FOR THIS BOOK, I SWEAR. It is everywhere. From book recreations to heavy praises to just pictures of the book on my bookstagram feed everyday. It has been shoved into my face multiple times. I was already interested in it when I saw it the first time and read the synopsis but now I’m really in. This has quickly made its way into this list because of the bookstagrammers I follow.

star daughter

Star Daughter by Shveta Thakrar

Another Indian fantasy book, and another book with heavy promotion. This was promoted by mostly the same bookstagrammers/bloggers right after Hunted by the Sky so of course it made its way to this list as well. But if I’m being honest, I’m still unsure about this book. Generally I look for more reviews myself instead of just following my Instagram feed, and I haven’t done that for this book yet. I’m optimistic about it, though. Hopefully I’ll like it.

the house in the cerulean sea

House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

This is the ONE book in this list that I’m sure I will rate 5 stars. The premise sounds too good and right up street. Plus, a ton of reviewers on every platform have been reading and praising it. Also, I just have a good feeling about this book, okay?? I’m considering picking this one up after reading a fantasy book from this list. Also, this book has a freaking 4.56 average rating on Goodreads?! That is god level.

This author is highly praised as well. Reviewers have been talking about him like they’re writing an ode to him so… I have huge expectations.

jade city

Jade City by Fonda Lee

This book has actually been on my TBR for a while because of a blog post a few months back. I didn’t know that it was this popular back then. But once the news about it’s adaptation came out, my twitter feed was FILLED with people screaming about this book. It’s as if everyone brought out their love for this book from a cave where it was hiding. So yeah, all the talk has bumped this book up in my TBR.

city of brass

City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty

Okay so technically, this book has been on my TBR for about a year or so. It has been a while. I didn’t pick it up because I was waiting for the trilogy to fully release. Now that the third book is out, I should pick it up. But before I even got to it, just about EVERYONE is reading it??? The hype has been overwhelming.

I really want to buy paperbacks of the entire trilogy (because the covers are pretty) but I also want this specific edition. One cannot be guaranteed about the editions when ordering books in. So.. I’m unsure if I’ll wait to get the books and then read it or if I’ll go ahead with the ebook version for now.

cinderella is dead

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Baron

If you don’t know, I’m a lover of Cinderella retellings. I don’t care what kind of retelling it is, I will read it. Bonus points if the plot is twisted/changed. So when I first heard of this book, it was immediately added to my list before I even saw the synopsis. And since ARCs of the book have been out for a while, people are T A L K I N G about this book. My excitement about this has increased.

Also, these lines from the synopsis are everything: This fresh take on a classic story will make readers question the tales they’ve been told, and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them. Doesn’t that sound awesome?!

And those were the 10 I need to read as soon as I can. Hopefully, I’ll start on this list right after exams are done.

Are there any books that you have to read ASAP? Do we have any in common?

  2. I’m not really interested in most of them but I have The House in the Cerulean Sea on my tbr and already took a peak and it really sounds so sweet. 🙂
    City of Brass might also be one of my next read but somehow the page count scares me off a little.

  8. Okay but the fact that I have not read A SINGLE BOOK on this list?? Now, let me be clear, most of these books are on my TBR and I actually started reading The City of Brass (and it is sooo good so far)! I haven’t heard a lot of The Bone Witch, Star Daughter and Hunted by the Sky but they seem soo good. (Side note, if anyone wants to buddy read Jade City, I am here for it). This line is literally me: “People manifest dreams and success, I manifest my reading.” Also, how can you write such amazing posts? I hope your exams went well!

  9. Ahh I’ve been wanting to read ALL of these books too because of the hype. Way too many good releases recently…but that’s a good thing! I did read one of these books, The House in the Cerulean Sea, and it was SO cute and heartwarming.

  10. You know what, the covers of the books you picked are just lovely! Even if these stayed on my TBR shelf, I will be happy just by looking at them. Of course, I do wish you are able to go through them all, especially the guaranteed five-star ones. All the best!
