Happy holidays everyone! It’s that wonderful time of year to spend with your loved ones decorating the tree, exchanging gifts, and enjoying every precious moment with family and friends as this year comes to an end. As we brave through the malls shopping for gifts, don’t forget to treat yourself with these new releases.
1. Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi (release date: December 3 2019)
Sequel to Children of Blood and Bone and one of the most highly anticipated releases this month! I was surprised how much I loved Children of Blood and Bone that I am excited to read what happens to Zelie and Amari as they try to unite the maji in Orisha. On top of that, the first book is turning into a movie! With all this excitement for this new fantasy series, I have high expectations for the sequel.
2. Reverie by Ryan La Sala (release date: December 3 2019)
This is described as Inception meets The Magicians in the most imaginative YA debut of the year! Kane Montgomery doesn’t remember what happened before he was found half-dead in the river. As he finds more clues, Kane meets up with three other strangers who claim they can help him, until they are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere. This new imaginative debut explores what happens when secret worlds come into light.
3. Dangerous Alliance by Jennieke Cohen (release date: December 3 2019)
The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue meet Jane Austen in this witty historical romance. Lady Victoria Aston has everything she needs to live happily in her home, until she is told to marry or find herself and her family destitute. But none of her books have taught her about surviving the season until her wedding day…
4. The Weight of a Soul by Elizabeth Tammi (release date: December 3 2019)
A story about viking clans, sisterhood, Norse gods and a chain of events leading to…Ragnarok?! I haven’t seen a YA story about Nordic mythology since I read Warrior of the Wild this year, so I am really looking forward to read how this one turns out.
