⬂↘⬊ Five Dark Fates ⬋↙⬃
OMG Three Dark Crowns is coming to an end, and I am DYING to know how it ends. I picked up the first book of this series on a whim a few summers ago. I didn’t think I would like such a dark fantasy, but I fell in love with the world (the queens in particular). Now that I can look back on my TDC reading experience, I think it might be one of the only series I’ve read as the books have been released. (I’m slow and impatient, so I do a lot of bingeing…) I can’t wait to see how Kendare wraps everything up, and I think this will be a great book to pick up in October. #spookyseason
⬂↘⬊ Loki: Where Mischief Lies ⬋↙⬃
by Mackenzi Lee
My only experience with Mackenzi Lee was this past spring when I listened to The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and LOVED it. Mackenzie’s writing style is one of my favorites. She could make me laugh out loud with fantastic dialogue and then have me on the edge of my seat a paragraph later. Not only is she a marvelous author, but she is also writing about my (arguably) favorite villain of all time! Loki is such a complicated comic book character, and I’ve wanted a story focused on him for such a long time. I can’t wait to see what spin she puts on a classic character!
⬂↘⬊ The Lady Rogue ⬋↙⬃
by Jenn Bennett
Two summers ago, I fell head over heels for Jenn Bennett after receiving a copy of Starry Eyes in my Uppercase Box. I’d never heard of any of her books before diving into that one, and I am so glad I hadn’t. I think some of my favorite books stem from having little to no prior knowledge about the book or the author. Up until now, I only considered Jenn a contemporary author. This new release is way outside of what I would have expected from her, but I’m excited to see how it is received. Adventure novels like this one open up a world of possibilities, and I cannot wait to read her take on it.
⬂↘⬊ Wayward Son ⬋↙⬃
by Rainbow Rowell
I have to be completely honest, after seeing so many bookstagram posts of Wayward Son, I assumed that it had been released a while ago. It has been such a long time since I’ve read Carry On, but I’m so excited to get my hands on its sequel. Simon Snow is such a beloved character in the young adult universe, and I can’t believe we’re getting to read more about him after Carry On ended. I hope that it lives up to all the hype, and maybe it’ll give me an excuse to reread Carry On soon.
