Top Ten Tuesday: The next 10 ARCs I plan to read


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is a FREEBIE. I love freebie weeks — it’s such fun to see all the unique top 10 lists everyone comes up with.

My top 10 topic? It’s all about the ARCs.

I’m working hard on getting my reading life organized, keeping track of my pending review copies, and making time for all the other books I want to read too. I’d taken a rather big pause in terms of requesting ARCs last year, but somehow I’ve ended up with quite a few for the first half of 2017. So, without further ado, here are 10 upcoming books, to be published between February and July, that I plan to read on or about their respective release dates. The ARCs are just sitting there on my Kindle, calling my name…

Going by release date:

1) Always by Sarah Jio (2/7/2017)


2) The Gilded Cage by Vic James (2/14/2017)


3) The Mother’s Promise by Sally Hepworth (2/21/2017)


4) Next Year For Sure by Zoey Leigh Peterson (3/7/2017)


5) Mister Memory by Marcus Sedgwick (3/7/2017)


6) The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See (3/21/2017)


7) Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel (4/4/2017)


8) The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion (5/2/2017)


9) Coming Up For Air by Miranda Kenneally (7/1/2017)


10) South Pole Station by Ashley Shelby (7/4/2017)


Are you planning to read (or have you already read) any of the ARCs on my list?

  1. Great list, Lisa! I’m the same as you; I planned to cut back on ARCs this year and somehow I’ve still ended up with quite a few. I’m hoping I can actually cross them off my TBR and review them, though, because unread ARCs fill me with guilt.

    I love the cover of Waking Gods, and The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane sounds fantastic – I’ve been meaning to read some Lisa See and I’m really, really into books set in or about Asia right now. I hope you manage to get to these soon, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on See’s new book. =)

    • I’ve read a bunch of Lisa See’s books previously – she’s a terrific writer! A friend just read the Tea Girl book and said it’s one of her best. 🙂 Waking Gods is a sequel to Sleeping Giants, which was great. Yeah, I’d been doing so much better about requesting ARCs, but I kept finding more and more books to request!

  2. Have you read Sally Hepworth’s book that came out last year–“The Things We Keep”? I was so emotionally invested and distraught and all the emotions at the end of it, that I feel like I need to keep reading her work. “The Mother’s Promise” is on my list for this year too!

    • The Things We Keep is exactly why I requested The Mother’s Promise! It sounds like we had very similar reactions to The Things We Keep — such a powerful book.

  3. I loved Gilded Cage! I’ve come across the others in passing, but there are a couple titles I hadn’t heard of. Sleeping Giants was really not for me, unfortunately, so I’ll be missing out on Waking Gods. Might check out a synopsis or two though. 🙂

  4. I’m so excited for Waking Gods. I listened to the audiobook of the first one and was kind of holding out for the audiobook for the second as well but I caved and requested an ARC and am crossing my fingers. lol
