So let’s begin with a book that is not going to be on this list within 4 weeks. That’s right, you heard me talk about it before but I can’t help it! It’s the wonderful story of . . .
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Còrdova
“”Enchanting and complex. Every page is filled with magic.”-Danielle Paige, New York Times best-selling author of Dorothy Must Die
Nothing says Happy Birthday like summoning the spirits of your dead relatives.
Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation…and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can’t trust. A boy whose intentions are as dark as the strange marks on his skin.
The only way to get her family back is to travel with Nova to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland…”
Up Next is . .
“It’s Boston, 1919, and the Cast Iron club is packed. On stage, hemopaths—whose “afflicted” blood gives them the ability to create illusions through art—captivate their audience. Corinne and Ada have been best friends ever since infamous gangster Johnny Dervish recruited them into his circle. By night they perform for Johnny’s crowds, and by day they con Boston’s elite. When a job goes wrong and Ada is imprisoned, they realize how precarious their position is. After she escapes, two of the Cast Iron’s hires are shot, and Johnny disappears. With the law closing in, Corinne and Ada are forced to hunt for answers, even as betrayal faces them at every turn.”
“When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.
In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha — one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice.”
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
“Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.
Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.”
Another book that I desperately need is . . .
The Fate of the Tearling (Queen of the Tearling #3) by Erika Johansen
I need to re-read the series before the third and finally book comes out so I can give you the best review for this series as I can. Just believe me when I say, it’s the best Queen-style book that showcases a strong female character instead of the traditional subservient female character.
The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Tearling trilogy.
In less than a year, Kelsea Glynn has transformed from a gawky teenager into a powerful monarch. As she has come into her own as the Queen of the Tearling, the headstrong, visionary leader has also transformed her realm. In her quest to end corruption and restore justice, she has made many enemies—including the evil Red Queen, her fiercest rival, who has set her armies against the Tear.
To protect her people from a devastating invasion, Kelsea did the unthinkable—she gave herself and her magical sapphires to her enemy—and named the Mace, the trusted head of her personal guards, Regent in her place. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign, imprisoned in Mortmesne.
Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea—and the Tearling itself—will finally be revealed.
And last but certainly not least is
Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J. Maas
This book needs no Blurb!
I’m not sure who isn’t waiting for this book. I have ALL THE BOOKS! I mean ALL THE BOOKS! I’ve made friends on Goodreads by connecting with Maas fans on fan page forms! I’ve even disowned my physical friends who refuse to read the series from some strange, ignorant reason, that’s right I’m talking about you Latoya. Our friend is on OFFICIAL STAND OFF until you at least, and I do mean AT LEAST finish reading 1 Rainbow Rowell novel, and 1 Sarah J. Maas novel. Which honestly isn’t hard since the woman only has two physical series available for book store purchase! But, enough about that, let’s talk about this wonderful book. It’s the last book of the Throne of Glass series (maybe), and it will finally put all our shipping hearts to rest once Maas finally makes a worth intimate scene for my favorite couple as she did for Chapter 55 on ACOMAF!
Well that’s all folks!
