Happy Tuesday fellow book lovers. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is ‘books that I would slay a lion to get early’. As a reviewer, I am always so grateful for the review copies (ARCs) that are provided to me. I genuinely enjoy being able to be a part of an author’s publishing process and I love when I find new books that I am crazy about to push on all my family and friends :). And I, of course, love the blogging/reviewing/bookstagram community of other like-minded readers–I have made so many awesome friends and love getting to discuss our favorite books together.
That being said—There are always those ‘big titles’ out there that there just aren’t many review copies avaiable for, or a personally anticipated title that you just can’t quite get your hands on. This list is for those!

TOP TEN BOOKS I WOULD SLAY A LION TO GET EARLY
- The Wicked King by Holly Black (because it’s magical and unattainable and beautiful!)
- Her Last Move by John Marrs (doesn’t have a synopsis yet–does not matter. Auto-buy author!)
- The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware (because Ware is queen. And because NG and EW both declined my desperation)
- The Disasters by M.K. England (The Breakfast Club meets Guardians of the Galaxy?? Say no more.)
- Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft by Various Authors (Edited by Jessica Spotswood & Tess Sharpe) (Anthologies are my new love–and add witchcraft into that mix and my heart is racing!)
- Strange Days by Constantine J. Singer (Aliens & Time Travel. That is all. *micdrop*)
- Unbroken: 13 Stories Starring Disabled Teens by Various Authors (Edited by Marieke Nijkamp) (Because if you know me at all, you know where my passions in life are–and this book is it)
- Whatever the title of the Sky in the Deep companion novel will be… by Adrienne Young (I need more Viking action–and I need more Eelyn and Fisk.. even though I know they aren’t the MC in this title)
- The Dark Beneath The Ice by Amelinda Berube (Paranormal YA Horror.. YES!)
- The One You Can’t Forget by Roni Loren (I adored the first in the series, The Ones Who Got Away, and have all but begged–no I’ve probably begged as well–to get my hands on this one)
