A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (May 2)
King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard (Feb. 7)
So yes, this one has already come out, obviously, but I am so hyped for this series and this will probably be in my next book haul. I had been anticipating this book since November of last year and the release date completely slipped by me! The second book left me stunned, like literally in shock. At the end of the second book, we saw a huge, for lack of better terms, shit-storm. Mare is once again a prisoner under control of the new King, and I’m excited to see how things play out between her, Maven, and Cal (Cal was always my favorite).
This book caught me off guard, and reading the synopsis, I am so excited for this November release! The premis is, wait for it…… superheros! I’m so ready for this book, this is the plot I didn’t know I needed. The first line of Marissa Meyer’s synopsis- “The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned.” What? Did you just read that because I just did and I. Am. So. Pumped. I have never read a superhero novel, but if it’s coming from the amazing author of the Lunar Chronicles, I am definitely going to read it.
Another book that already came out, but I’m a little late with doing this post, so of course I’m going to include because I’m excited to read it. It is claimed to be a coming-of-age novel for lovers of the Labyrinth and Beauty and the Beast. I’m not sure what the Labyrinth is, but I LOVE Beauty and the Beast, so I’m sure I’ll love this book. I haven’t read much of the synopsis and don’t really know the premise, but I’m still so ready to read this.
Yes, it came out already. No, I haven’t read it. Yes, I’m so excited to. I have heard all the booktubers raving about this book and I really just want to get in the hype too. I know there’s dragons and an underground organ market, so it sounds really weird, but it seems pretty interesting and unique. It reminds me of Throne of Glass in a way because of the main character, but the premise is completely new.
This novel is about a girl named Mariko, daughter of a samurai and an alchemist. When she is ambushed by the Black Clan, she decides to take control of the situation. From there, she infiltrates the clan and uncovers some dark secrets that she hadn’t been expecting. I love stories like this, with samurais and infiltration, so this novel sounded perfect for me.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve never read a book centered on all the illegitimate children of a king, lol. It sounded pretty interesting, and I really like the era of kings and queens. The book focuses on one girl, a child of the king, who is cast aside when the king has legitimate children. I don’t have much else to say about it, just that I like the plot and I’m sure it’ll be a new experience in reading.
Let me know which books you’re most excited for in the comments. Thanks for reading!
