Hey there, happy readers. Happy May first and MAY DAY! Where does time go? We’re nearly at the halfway mark of 2018. But before we reach that official point, let’s welcome May with an all new edition of Top Ten Tuesday. Our That Artsy Reader Girl May 1 topic is Book ARCs I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early (Submitted by Emma).

This topic is SO much fun – many thanks to Emma for the creative submission. I must also say this is the perfect subject for me since anytime I have the opportunity to read a copy of a novel I’m anticipating, it’s kinda a big deal. A big deal in the sense of it’s
an honor for this blog to be considered to feature a favorite author’s new novel.
It’s always an honor to, in a small way, help spread the word on amazing fiction alongside all of the fellow bloggers in this community.
Today’s top ten list subject wants us to talk a little bit about the books – novels that have a few months (or more than?!) left before launch, we cannot wait to get our bookworm hands on. My list of ten is simple but beside each number sits a book I’m curious about (for many reason) and eager to add to my collection. Some are titles I’ve been anticipating from the start, others are recent discoveries as I put this list together. Either way, I’m ready to enjoy some great upcoming fiction.
Let’s take a peek at some of the fiction heading our way.
ARCs I’D SLAY A LION TO GET EARLYARCs of Books I’d ALMOST Slay a – Lion? Dragon? – to Get Early #FWarchives Click To Tweet
1: Carols and Chaos by Cindy Antsey | I’ve not yet read any of Cindy’s books (my loss), but they look and sound adorable. There is one sitting on my shelf, so there’s no excuse keeping me from reading them. In stores September 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
2: Sons of Blackbird Mountain by Joanne Bischof | Joanne’s novels never disappoint. Her writing and characters are memorable. I’ve no doubt her latest novel will follow suit. In stores July 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
3: Lovely, Dark and Deep by Justina Chen | Only recently took a second look at this one, but it sounds really interesting – kind of like a premise that mirrors Everything, Everything. In stores July 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
4: The Truth Between Us by Tammy L. Gray | Still reading book one in this duo, but I’m loving it. (The slowness has nothing to do with the story, and everything to do with my current busyness.) It’s safe to say, I’m thrilled (as I just discussed in a recent Waiting on Wednesday), book two is arriving so closely behind book one. In stores July 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
5: All Made Up by Kara Isaac | This book is a recent discovery, so I have to shout – HOW DID I NOW KNOW KARA HAS A NEW BOOK ARRIVING? Needless to say, I’m excited. Available online September 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
6: A Sparkle of Silver by Liz Johnson | Though I’ll confess I liked the original cover for this story better, the repackage in no way dampens my excitement for a new novel from Liz. This story sounds lovely – as I know it will be. In stores October 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
7: In Another Time by Caroline Leech | I say it frequently, but will repeat it. YA historical is something I’d really like to read more of. Here’s hoping one of the authors who’s books I enjoy is Caroline Leech and her WWII romances. In stores August 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
8: The Map from Here to There by Emery Lord | *ahem* Adding this one is probably a little premature. But what can I say? When Emery Lord announced a sequel to The Start of Me and You (*heart eyes*), excitement went through the roof. In stores 2019. Amazon | Goodreads
9: Murder at the Flamingo by Rachel McMillan | Rachel’s 1900s mysteries were a hoot – and cute to boot. Needless to say, when a kind of “spin off” series was announced, the Roaring 20s never sounded so exciting. In stores July 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
10: The Surface Breaks by Louise O’ Neil | This one doesn’t really fit on the list because it releases this month (therefore the “finished copy” wait is nearly over), but it was a new-to-me book that sounds so good (a Little Mermaid re-telling). Therefore I didn’t want to leave it off the list. In stores May 2018. Amazon | Goodreads
