Publishing Company: Image comics

Rating: 3-star-rating

 

 

Goodreads Synopsis: Imagine if sunlight burned you alive. In the near future, a mysterious solar event has transformed the sun’s light into deadly immolating rays. The world’s few survivors now live in nocturnal cities. But a killer emerges who uses sunlight to burn his victims, and when he targets the daughter of a solar power mogul, it falls to a disillusioned solar engineer to protect her.

 

My Thoughts: I liked the premise of this and that fact that people had to move under ground to survive the sun. I think that the flashbacks throughout the volumes didn’t really seem to add too much in my opinion. I will pick up the next volume when it comes out though because I did enjoy the story arc overall.

I didn’t think I’d be able to come up with 10 for this list and it was way harder than I thought it was going to be. I had to really hunt for some of these. There are a few on the list that I totally didn’t expect to be here. I loved all of these books and I highly recommend each one of them! If you have read any of these let me know what you thought of it in a comment!

Goodreads Synopsis: All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacation—a lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke.

Now Magnus and Alec must race across Europe to track down the Crimson Hand and its elusive new leader before the cult can cause any more damage. As if it wasn’t bad enough that their romantic getaway has been sidetracked, demons are now dogging their every step, and it is becoming harder to tell friend from foe. As their quest for answers becomes increasingly dire, Magnus and Alec will have to trust each other more than ever—even if it means revealing the secrets they’ve both been keeping.

 

Why I’m Anticiapting This: I will forever read books put out in the Shadowhunter world. The fact that this is following Alec and Magnus is so exciting and I can’t wait for a whole trilogy centered on them!

Goodreads Synopsis: This fourth entry and prequel tells the story of Lundy, a very serious young girl who would rather study and dream than become a respectable housewife and live up to the expectations of the world around her. As well she should.

When she finds a doorway to a world founded on logic and reason, riddles and lies, she thinks she’s found her paradise. Alas, everything costs at the goblin market, and when her time there is drawing to a close, she makes the kind of bargain that never plays out well.

 

My Thoughts: I will read endless books set in this series. I love all of them so much. It was very cool to see the world that Lundy went to. I would highly recommend reading these books in the order that they were published. I liked the world of the goblin market. The writing was phenomenal as always. I can’t wait for the next one to come out, but unfortunately I have to wait a year!

Goodreads Synopsis: In a high fantasy feminist epic, a revolutionary spell gives women the ability to control their own fertility—with consequences that rock their patriarchal society to its core.

When a nobleman’s first duty is to produce a male heir, women are treated like possessions and bargaining chips. But as the aftereffects of a world-altering spell ripple out physically and culturally, women at last have a bargaining chip of their own. And two women in particular find themselves at the crossroads of change.

Alys is the widowed mother of two teenage children, and the disinherited daughter of a king. Her existence has been carefully proscribed, but now she discovers a fierce talent not only for politics but also for magic—once deemed solely the domain of men. Meanwhile, in a neighboring kingdom, young Ellin finds herself unexpectedly on the throne after the sudden death of her grandfather the king and everyone else who stood ahead of her in the line of succession. Conventional wisdom holds that she will marry quickly, then quietly surrender the throne to her new husband…. Only, Ellin has other ideas.

The tensions building in the two kingdoms grow abruptly worse when a caravan of exiled women and their escort of disgraced soldiers stumbles upon a new source of magic in what was once uninhabitable desert. This new and revolutionary magic—which only women can wield—threatens to tear down what is left of the patriarchy. And the men who currently hold power will do anything to fight back. 

 

Why I’m Anticipating This: A feminist story where women control if they get pregnant or not. Sign my up! I do think that the synopsis tells a little too much but I am so excited for this to come out! I have very high hopes for this one.

Goodreads Synopsis: Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

 

My Thoughts: Not gonna lie I decided to read this because I wanted to see the movie! I’m so glad that I read this first. It was so damn adorable and the relationship between Will and Stella was so cute and it didn’t seem like it was rushed or that it happened at a weird pace. I think that the medical side of the story was done really well. I think all of the characters were developed well. I laughed, smiled and cried at points while reading this.  I really loved it and I can’t wait to see the movie now.
