Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
Hopefully this East Asian fantasy will be better than Richelle Mead’s failed attempt.
The Tiger’s Daughter by K. Arsenault Rivera
Everyone is going on about this fantasy novel! It’s about two warriors who have to battle demons.
Far From the Tree by Robin Benway
I really enjoyed this one! It’s about three siblings who have been adopted separately and/or placed in foster care. It’s really good and it made me cry.
Warcross by Marie Lu
This sounds a lot like all the other video game books that have been coming out in recent years, but I want to read it anyway because I do really like Lu’s writing.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins
I’ve read this already and it’s really good! It’s a classic slasher story set in a small town. Teenagers start getting picked off one by one for some unknown reason.
Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett
I think this is going to be an interesting fantasy adventure based on the reviews that I’ve seen.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
I don’t usually read movie tie-ins but this doesn’t really count. I want to read more about Wonder Woman!
A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor
This one is about two sisters, so obviously I have to read it.
The Secret History of Us by Jessi Kirby
I keep getting told that I need to read Kirby’s books so I might try this one. Maybe. The cover creeps me out a bit though.
I was going to keep this post quite concise in an attempt to prevent myself from wanting ALL THE BOOKS, but apparently July is the month in which all the new releases are out. I’ve told myself that I’m only allowed to buy one of these, but let’s be honest, I have no self control.
I really enjoyed Stokes’ contemporary debut, The Art of Lainey, so I feel like I should read this to give the author another whirl. In this book, a Youtube star dies and his mourning girlfriend starts getting harassed.
Kasie West! She’s on my auto-buy list, even if I didn’t like her last contemporary all that much. I can’t even remember if I read it properly or if I skim read it. But anyway, in this book the main character wins the lottery, so I’m hoping it’ll be a fun rags to riches story.
When I’m in the mood to read about carnivals again, I’ll be picking this one up.
November is always a slow month when it comes to releases, but there are a few books that I’m looking forward to. Winter is the only one that I’ll be buying and reading right away because I’m on a ban/have work, but I’m definitely interested in getting the rest soon.
