5 books that I’m DYING to read But probably won't anytime soon

Hey all! This time I’m doing a non-review post, and it’s not because I’m short on books I’ve read or back-logged reviews (I wish), it’s actually because I’ve been thinking of these for a while now and I can’t get them out of my mind! So I’ve decided to share:

#5 BOOKS I'm dying to read

Anyone else who wants to participate can grab this disclaimer picture, name your post the same way and include a link to this post! Let the fun begin.

Alright, so let’s get started.

5 books I’m DYING to read! But probably won’t get to anytime soon T_T

Brother’s Ruin by Emma Newman

Have you heard about this one? It’s a new one, will be coming out on March 14th, and it won’t be a minute too soon. I have stumbled upon this gem on The Book Smugglers – it included one chapter and it just hooked me straight up. So good! It’s set in Victorian times where magic is a problem, because you get persecuted if you hide that you’re a mage! The main character is a woman, an illustrator, and… a latent mage. In the first excerpt, we see her witness a scene of another mage being found out, and it’s chilling and shocking. Read it for yourselves here!

Unfortunately, I have been denied for this one on NetGalley T_T so there is no other way but to wait for it to come out, like every other mortal reader. Woe is me. Will be counting the seconds!!

Six Wakes

Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty

I swear, all of you have already read this. Most of you have posted reviews! And yet I have not got my hands on it. But one day! What is so intriguing is that all of your reviews have been SO GOOD! And I’ve just been hyped about it from minute one. Reminds me of that episode of Doctor Who with the flesh!

Dark Matter

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

I’ve had my eyes on this one since last year. And like I said, ALL of you have read it as well! Infuriating, huh. But I just won’t let myself buy an expensive book when I already have so many to read! So I’ll be waiting for a sale on this. Most of your reviews have intrigued me to no end, because there’s an equal chance of me loving this as well as hating it. I just really want to find out!

A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers, #2)

A Closed And Common Orbit by Becky Chambers

I know a lot of you know of this one – especially if you’ve read the first book, A Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet. I know from many reviews that it won’t follow the adventures of the crew in the previous book – as much as I wish it would! But it will still be by the same lovely author with the same brilliant mind, so I expect no less. Besides, we get to find out about Lovey and Pepper! Can’t wait… till it goes on sale.

Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2)

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I’ve been looking forward to reading this after I finished Illuminae, that was sometime around November or December, and I still think about it occasionally. Again, will have to wait a little bit to get my hands on this one, but I’m sure I won’t have forgotten the plot! People say it’s a much better book than Illuminae, and considering that one kept me at the edge of my seat, this must be thrilling!

So those are my 5 book I’m extremely hyped up to read, but won’t – for now. Have you read any of these? And are you impatiently waiting for the chance to read something as well? Share with me! And do the tag! ♥


I’m Evelina and I try to blog about books that matter, with a bit of fun there too! Disability and equality will be topics you see a lot, but there’s also a lot of scifi, fantasy and… GIFs. I’m also the proud founder of #ARCsAnonymous.

  1. I’ve not heard of any of these besides Gemina and that’s only because I’ve seen it floating around twitter :’D

    These books look so good. My poor tbr. One my dying to read is the new HP book. I got it when it came out and just haven’t read it.

    1. Oh, the play? I haven’t read it either! It does happen that when you buy a book you’re suddenly ‘safe’ and you forget you so absolutely needed to read it 😀

  2. Oh my my! Thank you so much for the tag!
    I have been witnessing a lot of people reading these books or mentioning about them. I do want to read Gemina, hope to buy it very soon ☺️
    This is a great tag, I really liked it!
    Thanks again ☺️

    1. Great 🙂 have you read Illuminae then?
      I have a great weakness for sci-fi 😀 also I definitely recommend reading that excerpt for Brother’s Ruin, it was so good :0

  3. I would like to read Closed and Common orbit as well. Same old problem, a few reviews I need to write and a few books I want to read and slowly I just forget about books I had on my radar.

    Brothers Ruin looks so good! NetGalley is so weird, I have been denied books on it and had a copy show up at my house. It seems to be ran by different publicists completely.

    1. Yeah, I guess so 🙂 NetGalley is just for eARCs, and I guess sometimes those are run by totally different publishers than print versions, especially if other countries are involved. Slightly jealous you get print books, I don’t 😀 not yet, at least 🙂 must be an awfully nice surprise. But I understand why I wouldn’t be approved for Brother’s Ruin – I found out late and requested probably already when the book was trending. It makes more sense to them for a small blog to be a buying reader rather than give it away free at this point 🙂 they might have approved me had I know of the book several months ago.

    1. Well, that makes me feel better at least 😀 I’m not the only one 😀
      Are you planning to read Brother’s Ruin? Can’t remember if I saw that on your blog somehow.

  4. Thanks for the tag! This is a great topic. We all have those books that we just can’t get to, for whatever reason. I have to say I’ve read three of your five and LOVED all of them. I’d love to get to Brother’s Ruin as well, but I don’t know if I’ll have time. Good luck securing copies!

    1. Thanks! I just can’t wait until Brother’s Ruin comes out, which is like next week. So I guess I’ll let you know if it’s worth your time 🙂

    1. Yeah, same here 🙂 I feel like I should give the first one space and let it sit a little, then I’m going to read the sequel.

    1. That’s just how I feel. Well, comes out next week! It’s a good thing e-books don’t get sold out, so at least I don’t have that to fear 😀

  5. I’ve heard AMAZING things about Illuminae, but I haven’t gotten to it. Hopefully I’ll get to it this year, It’s on the list, I just haven’t made time to read it yet. Good post. Have an AMAZING DAY!

    1. Thank you 🙂 you should totally check out Illuminae! It’s like a one evening read, but it might make you pull a one-nighter because you won’t be able to drop it 🙂

  6. Woaaaaaah! Thank you for the tag, I can’t wait to answer to this post and it should be up next week.
    Also 2/5 books in your list are in my wishlist since a while: Dark Matter and A Closed And Common Orbit but I don’t think I am gonna to read soon :/

    1. Haha, I’m kind of glad we share like half the list 😀 and even more glad you will do the tag ^_^ will be waiting for your post!

  7. Thanks for the tag! It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a tag or meme; I will definitely add this to my drafts list. 🙂 I feel pretty good seeing both Gemina and Dark Matter on here, since I’ve read and reviewed them both! That’s a big deal for me, as my review backlog is in the double digits now… O_o Oops. I really need to work on that.

    Brother’s Ruin sounds awesome! I love the concept of it; it’s like the inquisition, but in the UK and about magic instead of religion. I dig that. Why will you be waiting to read it, if it comes out tomorrow? Just prioritizing other books? I wouldn’t blame you, I’m just curious. 🙂

    1. I see it’s a busy time for all of us xD I am struggling with my own posts as well. Don’t know where the time flies 😐
      Very glad you’ll do the tag! 🙂
      Brother’s ruin really does sound awesome!! And I just purchased it. Thanks for accidentally reminding me it came out today 😉
      Also, got a book on NetGalley lately, and I thought it might interest you because you do go for some interesting non-fiction. It’s called The Radium Girls and it’s about female workers working with Radium in the beginning of the century back when people thought it was… safe. So curious to check it out! It’s still up for request, if you’re interested, thought I’d mention cause it seems very interesting to me.

      And I was posting this like a week or two ago, that’s why waiting for it 😀 I also didn’t expect it to only cost 4$!! Which is why I grabbed it. Wouldn’t have if it was more xD it’s mostly why I still haven’t read all the others.

  8. I really want to read Dark Matter too, actually! Although like you, I have way too many books already to justify buying it just yet 😉

    Highly recommend Gemina, btw. It’s excellent.

    1. Thanks 🙂 I actually already read Brother’s Ruin! So there’s that. Glad we share quite a few books on our TBR then 🙂
