3 Authors I NEED New Books From

We've all had it happen. We read a great book by an author we've never tried before, so we eagerly go onto their Goodreads author page to find our next book only to find...nothing. This author hasn't written anything else, there's no Goodreads entries for future books, and all desperate Google searches come up with nothing. Your potential new favorite author has written only one book.

Sometimes, our need for more is met pretty quickly when the author announces a new project (and then there's just the wait for the release date, which is hard enough on its own). But sometimes...we wait. And we wait. Aaaaaaand we wait.

Here are three of the authors whose plans I'm eagerly anticipating the most. Each of them had their debut published over a year ago, and none of them has any pages for future books on Goodreads. I'm sure that if these authors are working on another book, they're taking the time to make it as wonderful as it can be, and I understand that writing takes time...BUT I'M READY ANYTIME.
All Our Yesterdays Cristin Terrill Cristin Terrill, author of All Our Yesterdays: This book has everything. Time travel, politics, friendship, romance - I could go on for a while. I wasn't expecting to be completely sucked into this book, but that's exactly what happened. Suddenly, I found myself a couple hundred pages in and trying (and failing) not to cry. There were plans for a sequel, but that didn't work out. I'm not too disappointed, since this one had a nice ending, but I haven't heard anything about another Cristin Terrill book in the works.
Makiia Lucier, author of A Death-Struck Year: I couldn't put this book down. It's a lovely historical (and you know my weakness for historicals) about a girl who decides to help others during the Spanish influenza. I haven't been able to find a lot of YA books set in this time period, so I was eager to pick this one up. I was not disappointed. I was completely drawn in, especially by all of the wonderful characters, and it made me want to read some nonfiction about the influenza (which I'll get to...eventually). Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anything about Makiia Lucier releasing another book. I know she hasn't completely vanished from the publishing world, since A Death-Struck Year was just released in paperback, but I'm very eager to hear about something new. A Death-Struck Year Makiia Lucier
The Chance You Won't Return Annie Cardi Annie Cardi, author of The Chance You Won't Return: This book has stuck with me for quite a while. I was actually shocked when I saw that I'd first read it a year and a half ago because so much of it is still fresh in my mind. It's the story of a girl whose mom starts thinking that she's Amelia Earhart. It's a fascinating view of mental illness and how it affects an entire family. I know we'll be getting more books from this author in the future - she includes writing updates in her blog posts - but I haven't heard any concrete plans for specific books or release dates. 

Which authors are you most excited to hear new plans from? And how long have you been waiting? Have you read any of the books I included? Tell me in the comments!

August Wrap-Up

I'm having a bunch of weird feelings about it being the last day of August right now. I mean, I love autumn, and I'm SO EXCITED that summer is coming to an end because it means cooler temperatures and flannel and pumpkin-flavored things and pretty colors, but at the same time...there's just no way that today's the last day of August. That's not a thing that's happening right now in my head. It's just not. I think I'm stuck near the end of July somewhere.

And with the end of August comes the end of summer break. Within a week, I'll be starting my second year of college! Equal parts exciting and intimidating. The week or so is definitely going to be hectic, what with moving and such, so any posts I manage to get up will be scheduled in advance.

August was a pretty great reading month for me - I was actually hoping to get a bit more in, considering it's my last month of 2017 without classes, but I think I still did rather well. And in terms of star …

Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017

So, I haven't posted since the beginning of the month, because finals totally destroyed me. But I'm here now! And for the gazillionth time in four months, I'm saying that I'm gonna get back onto a normal posting schedule. But for now, I have plenty of things to post this week since it's one of my favorite times of year - wrapping things up at the very end!

Yes, it's nearly the end of 2017. And personally, I will not be sorry about kissing this year goodbye. I've had a pretty good reading year, and not a bad personal year! But 2017 as a global phenomenon has not been great, and I don't think I'm alone in that sentiment. It's made me really want to focus on the good this year, especially in the form of books! So without further ado, here are my top ten books I read this year.

10. LADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare (The Dark Artifices #1): Based on all the other Cassandra Clare books I've read, I was in no way expecting this to make it onto my favo…

Ten Books I Want My Cousins to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme: Ten Books You Want Your Children/Godchildren/Young Relatives/Etc. To Read.

Hi, everyone! *waves* Long time, no post. School kind of...ate me. But I'm back, at least for today. I don't know what I'm going to do about a consistent schedule, and I don't know whether I'm going to really start back now, but here I am. And what better place to start than a Top Ten Tuesday?

When I saw this week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt, my mind immediately went to my cousins, specifically the ones that are closest to my age. I have a feeling that the books I picked are more YA than a lot of other people's lists, because my cousins aren't all that little anymore! I'm the oldest of that group, and I love them dearly even though I don't get to see them a lot. There are so many books out there that I think they'd enjoy or that I think would be valuable for them to read (or both), so …
