Bookish Diary ~ 6 Books I Need Yesterday

They say one of the best things in a reader's life is the anticipation for the upcoming books. On a good day, I agree, but on a bad day (like when the wait is becoming torture), I completely disagree. Some days, I just wake up and feel like give me this book now or I'll cut a bitch. Am I the only one who feels like that?

Most of the books I am anxiously waiting for are written by authors whom I really liked in the past. I have become a picky reader these days. I don't know what is happening to me, but recently I tend to steer clear of the books that create a loud buzz on the internet. It takes me a while to decide whether I'm going to read them right away or not, unless I know and/or like the author.

When I meet new people (fellow readers), and we ask the usual questions of have you read this and have you read that, I have become the girl who hasn't read the new release, or the one that people are so crazy about recently. It's funny, because I used to be the girl who has read it as soon as it hit the shelves.

Now I'm just the girl who reads books that no one ever hears of (okay, not really, but you get what I mean). Now I'm just the girl who reads books after everyone else, because when I decide to finally read them the buzz has usually died down (like, girl, that's so two years ago down).

Okay. I have totally gotten off topic. Anyway, I have a lot of books I want to read (don't we all?), but here are six of them that has yet to be released (and I'm about to keel over in anticipation!):

1. The Midnight Star (The Young Elites #3) by Marie Lu
Expected Publication: October 11th 2016

The Midnight Star temporary coverI am anxiously waiting for the cover reveal. I can't even tell you properly how excited I am for this book. Like I said in my review of The Rose Society, Marie Lu is the only author who managed to break my heart in two consecutive books--and from the looks of it, she will do it again in the The Midnight Star. I love this series, though. This is one of my all-time favorites. If you haven't read The Young Elites, I suggest you do it right this instant!

2. Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes #3) by Sara Raasch
Expected Publication: September 20th, 2016
Frost Like Night cover

I know I didn't like Ice Like Fire that much, but I have high hopes for the third book. This is one of the most magical books I have ever read. Season kingdoms? Yes, please! I am also recommending this series to everyone who hasn't read it. But everyone has probably read it, though, right? After all, I'm the girl who reads the popular books after everyone else. *wink*

3. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Expected Publication: November 8th, 2016
Heartless cover

Dude, after The Lunar Chronicles, I'll probably read everything Marissa Meyer writes. Heartless is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, but instead of Alice this is the infamous queen of hearts' story. I am very curious how this book would turn out. I really need this book yesterday. November is such a long time away.

4. P. S. I Like You by Kasie West
Expected Publication: July 26th, 2016
P. S. I Like You cover
Ah, I love everything Kasie West has ever written. Even though I want to smack the female MCs heads together in her previous books. Even though her last book, The Fill-In Boyfriend, is kind of corny. Even though this one will (probably) also be kind of corny. Kasie West is just one of those authors who writes books I just can't resist liking, even though I feel like throwing the book against the wall. I want this book because I know it will be light and I can read it in between heavy books. *grin*

5. Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton
Expected Publication: September 6th, 2016
Diplomatic Immunity cover
If I take Jack out of the picture, I really loved Ashton's Everneath series. I am totally team Cole, even though I got my heart shattered in a million pieces for rooting for that guy. I am excited to read this one because it is (or it sounds like) a contemporary novel. I want to read contemporary novels by authors who has written paranormal/fantasy/sci-fi/other genre books before. In my experience, authors who write contemporary novels after successfully writing a kickass paranormal/fantasy/sci-fi/other genre book usually writes beautiful contemporary books. (Did you get that? Because I myself kind of got confused). Plus, Brodi Ashton has a Bachelor's degree in Journalism (like me! She's one of my inspirations), and this book is about an aspiring reporter. She should know what she's talking (or writing) about. This should be interesting.

6. United as One (Lorien Legacies #6) by Pittacus Lore
Expected Publication: June 28th, 2016
United as One cover
Alright, folks. I still don't understand why the authors felt the need to drag this series into another book, but I need it right now. After the ending of The Fate of Ten, I kind of want to inflict physical injuries to the authors. I wanted to cut them open and use their internal organs as accessories. Anyway, why can't June come fast enough?

What are the books you are looking forward to? Do you blog about them? Drop your links in the comments, or just tell me below! I need to talk about this. *wink*
