november bannerDid anyone else feel like October went by pretty quick? Thanksgiving and Halloween are now over and the next BIG holiday is just around the corner. And with this holiday comes the time to start thinking about gift giving. For those of you who like to plan ahead and stay away from the chaos inside the malls in December, here is a list of November new releases that you could add to your list or if you’re looking for something comforting to read this winter.

1. The Toll by Neal Shusterman (release date: November 5 2019)

37632682. sy475

I am very excited to see how this trilogy ends. The first two books surpassed my expectations and I am very impressed with how the story and the characters are developing. This is the conclusion set in the world where Scythes exist inside a utopian like city so that death continues to happen. The sequel was a plot twister so I’m looking forward to how it all ends.

Wow September felt like it went by pretty quick! Autumn has finally come and it’s the season for sweaters, cardigans, and scarfs. It’s also the month for Halloween, the perfect reading atmosphere for these new books. 

The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith (release date: October 1 2019)

43667481. sy475

The first book in a new adult fantasy series about unfinished books by their authors residing inside the Library of the Unwritten Hell, and it is up to the Librarians to track down any restless characters who emerge from these unfinished books. This book sounds like it’s right up my alley as I also started reading another series similar to this one called the Invisible Library. I can’t wait to see how this story is written!

July and August 2019 New Book Releases

As my lists for July and August are short, I’ve decided to put them together. The school term is finally over and with longer days and more sun, there is no better way to read a book then outdoors on a patio or at a beach with an umbrella, a hat, and an ice cold drink at hand.

David Mogo, Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa

An adult urban fantasy that deals with a Nigerian God punk. Wow, I never heard of that before. So picture this: on the streets of Lagos, David Mogo, is a demigod and a Godhunter tasked to capture a high god. Then a wizard shows up and conjures an army of gosling-child hybrids to help him take over Lagos. And so, David teams up with his foster wizard, the high god’s twin sister, and a speech impaired Muslim teenager to defeat the wizard. Continue reading “July and August 2019 New Book Releases”

June 2019 New Book Releases

A number of things happened before I could even write this post. After falling for a phishing email I had to scan my computer a few times to make sure there were no viruses. Then the Raptors were playing so I was distracted for awhile, and then afterwards, I remembered that I needed to write this post. Summer has arrived so fast that I hadn’t even realized it came! Enjoy the beginning of summer with these new anticipated releases.

1. Stronger than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan

The words ‘mechanical dragon’ caught my eye as I was reading the Goodreads synopsis and my fingers immediately added this title into my TBR shelf. An epic fantasy featuring a viceroy, a fleet of mechanical dragons, a sacred River Pearl, and a poor village girl determined to protect her home from the viceroy by going on an epic quest across the lands.

1. Nocturna by Maya Motayne

I received an ARC of this and so far, I am enjoying it. A Latino inspired world of fantasy with a face changing thief and a prince riddled with grief and obsession of bringing his brother back. These two are unlikely to team up but when they do, Finn and Prince Alfehr must defeat a powerful evil they accidentally unleashed.  Continue reading “May 2019 New Book Releases”

April New Book Releases

This month brings us new romances, deadly assassins, returning fangirls, a Regency mystery, and powerful stories of identity and learning to speak out. I think everyone will find a book here that suits them whether you choose to read curled up in bed, or sitting outside underneath the sun enjoying a refreshing beverage and a good book.

361186821) Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan

I am currently reading the ARC and so far, the story and characters are interesting but I am having trouble just enjoying this book. Maybe I went in with too high expectations given the hype around this one? I will let you know in my full review later. Meanwhile, this story has assassins who can weave blood magic, and battles with nightmarish monsters, along with political wars. Continue reading “April New Book Releases”

March New Book Releases:

Spring has arrived! Out of the cold, freezing weather comes warmer temperatures, clear skies and sunshine. I love the spring, it’s the season of renewal and new life, with trees and plants turning green and flowers blossoming in full colour. It’s also a great time of year for new books coming out this month. My list is short but these books are worth the wait if you are into DC comics, fantasy and thriller!

297490941) Superman: Dawnbreaker

A group of YA authors were selected to pick a DC character to rewrite their story. This time it is Matt de la Pena’s turn to write Superman’s story. Superman is second on my list of favourite DC characters after Batman, and it will be amazing to see how Superman’s character is rewritten for young adult audiences. Keep in mind that Superman’s character is rewritten to fit into this story so chances are, it’s not 100% accurate to the comic book character. It’s important that you read this with an open mind and not criticize it too hard for not being accurate because it wasn’t meant to. Continue reading “March New Book Releases:”

February 2019 New Releases

Happy February everyone! By the time I post this it will already be the middle of the month. But it’s not too late to start talking about February new releases. I’m trying to get into the routine of posting one non-review every month so that I’m not always posting reviews, but also new books on my TBR. Looking at my Goodreads shelves right now, I have a handful of new releases coming out this month. For this list I also added adult books and threw in other genres besides fantasy to mix it up a bit. If there are any other new books you’re looking forward to this month, leave a comment below; I love to see what’s on your TBR!

375693471) Courting Darkness – There will always be a book that is on everyone’s TBR and is always talked about by book tubers, bloggers, Instagramers, and Twitterers. This is THAT book. A YA fantasy and historical series about assassins, the French Court, and undercover missions filled with deception, murder, and mystery (and perhaps betrayal) A girl raised as one of Death’s daughters inside a convent and goes on a mission with the French duchess. It sounds like they are trying to market this for Nevernight fans. Thanks to Goodreads I later learned this is a continuation of Robin LaFevers His Fair Assassin series but don’t worry, you don’t have to read that first to enjoy this.
