12 Days of Christmas | Book Tag

Hey, everyone, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Coming at you with a very last minute post, but I saw this on Sofii’s blog @ A Book. A Thought. (sorry I keep stealing your tags, but you choose some very fun and creative ones!) and I had to join in.

The original tag was started by Lizzie Loves Books, so go and show her some love!

The Christmas season is always a hectic time for me, but also a nostalgic one. I love looking back on the year and what I accomplished as well as reminisce about times long past. What better way to do that this year than with all the books I’ve read?

So let’s look at my 12 Days of Christmas book tag!

The ABC Book Challenge – C

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to another ABC Book Challenge post. I decided to do this to add more variety to the blog and also because it looked incredibly fun (and so far, it is!). Once again, thank you to Sofii @A Book. A Thought. for introducing this tag to me, and for her support. You should definitely check out her blog if you haven’t already!

Here’s the challenge: Every week, I’ll have a post sharing my most favorite titles as well as those on my current TBR list that start with the corresponding letter. (For weird letters like Q, X, and Z, I might have to bend the rules a little and just have those letters somewhere in the title, but we’ll see.)

This week is the letter C!

I had a lot of expectations for The Cruel Prince. This book looked at them, sneered at their paltry designs, burned them to the ground, and then built from the ashes something so inconceivably better that all I can do is sit here and go

If you’ve been keeping up with me, you’ll know this was one of my most anticipated books releasing in January, if not the most anticipated. And it did not disappoint! I have been in mental and emotional turmoil since I finished it, I don’t even know what to do.

Most Anticipated Releases – January 2018

As the first of the year approaches, I thought I’d start a new post series talking about the books I’m most excited to be released each month. My plan is to do this for every month this year and hopefully have between 5-10 books to discuss for each.

This, of course, is in no way related to any insider publishing knowledge I possess (I have none), and I’m by no means pulling from an extensive list (I rely on Goodreads a lot for lists and information). So if you don’t see your fav listed here, it’s likely because I don’t know about it, so definitely drop me a comment! It may be right up my alley.

Without further ado, let’s get to it!

the cruel prince
I have been psyched for The Cruel Prince by Holly Black ever since I read that sweet, sweet synopsis on Goodreads. Anticipation for this book is actually what got me to read Holly Black’s other faerie novels, which I really enjoyed. In this one, Jude is a human who was stolen away as a child to live in the High Court of Faerie. Now she’s desperate to belong there, but most fey hate humans, especially Prince Cardan, the High King’s youngest son. Jude has to defy him if she wants a place in the Court–but doing so means consequences, for both her and her two sisters.

This book seems to feature all the things I love: court politics, a gutsy heroine, familial loyalty and drama, treachery, rich world-building, and, of course, problematic Fey love interests. A friend of mine actually found an ARC of this, and her hints have been most promising. I cannot wait for the new year and to have this book in my hands!

Release Date: January 2nd
