Top Ten Tuesday/Can't Wait Wednesday: Upcoming Releases I’m On the Fence About

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl

 The topic this week is Upcoming Releases I’m On the Fence About

I'm only listing five books and this post is being combined with...

Can't Wait-Wednesday is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read and is hosted by Wishful Endings.

1. The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire #6) by George R.R. Martin
(Release date unknown)

Will he ever actually finish it? Is there any point if Game of Thrones will have it's last season this year?

2. The Testaments (The Handmaid's Tale #2) by Margaret Atwood
(Release Sept 10, 2019)

Again...it seems kind of weird to write a sequel when the TV show answers the question of what happens. Was Atwood unsatisfied with what happened in the show?

3. Once & Future (Once & Future #1) by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy
(Releases March 5, 2019)

Why am I iffy? This blurb...

When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager...

Crash lands? Is she an alien? Why is Merlin aging backwards like Benjamin Button? Seems weird.

4. The Beautiful (The Beautiful #1) by Renée Ahdieh
(Releases Oct 8, 2019)

At once a sultry romance and a thrilling murder mystery, master storyteller Renée Ahdieh embarks on her most potent fantasy series yet.

You have vampires...but add a serial killer too? It's a romantic paranormal historical murder mystery. So many genres!

5. Chain of Gold (The Last Hours #1) by Cassandra Clare
(Releases No 9, 2019)

Another Shadowhunters series....yawn. By the angel, can't she write about anything else?


  1. I'm especially looking forward to Margaret Atwood's follow on! Cassandra Clare's- well, I need to read all the books to decide on that one! I will finish them one day!

    Here's my Wednesday post! Happy Hump Day!

  2. I'm excited about The Testaments. Then again, I'm a huge fan of The Handmaid's Tale book and TV show. I hope it's good and that it shows exactly how Gilead fell apart. That's something that Atwood has never gone into much detail about.

    This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  3. I have to agree with you on the Winds of Winter. I want to know what will happen but again what is the point if you watch the series? I'm on the fence about The Beautiful too. It's one of those I'm excited for it but also not because more vampires....

    My WoW

  4. Intriguing choices! Here's what I'm waiting on if you'd like to stop by!

  5. I had the same question about the Atwood book. 👍
