Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!
As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.
SORCERY OF THORNS by Margaret Rogerson, one of the first YA fantasy books I’ve liked this year, is out today! If you love magic, nemeses/enemies reluctantly teaming up to save the world, and are fascinated by the concept of living books, you definitely need to give this one a try! Hollis’ four star review will be up on the blog tomorrow!
GHOSTS OF THE SHADOW MARKET by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Kelly Link & Robin Wasserman, is a collection of eight short stories set in the Shadowhunter world. Having recently been drawn back into the OG The Mortal Instruments universe with the recent release of THE RED SCROLLS OF MAGIC (also by Clare and co-written by Wesley Chu) I’m keen to read these novellas from both before and during that same era.
CINDER & THE PRINCE OF MIDNIGHT is Susan Ee’s first release since 2015 and hoo boy am I excited. This dark reimagining of Cinderella (with fae?) released yesterday, June 3rd, and you know I snapped it up. Because let’s be real, it’s Susan Ee. I was already 60% invested without a synopsis or a cover (though I’ll admit I wouldn’t mind a prettier one..) and I can’t wait to reconnect with her words, and her creative brain, again.
THE TIGER CATCHER by Paullina Simons is the start of a contemporary trilogy that apparently breeches time and space… intrigued? So am I. There are themes of love, grief and searching and these two characters, Julian and Josephine, seem somewhat starcrossed. I’ve not read this author before, but I’ve heard plenty about THE BRONZE HORSEMAN and I want to give this book a go.
THE REST OF THE STORY by Sarah Dessen sounds like the classic coming of age YA contemporary but bringing in some interesting dynamics. Emma’s mother died when she was 10 and now shes about to reconnect with some of her family that have been in the background. I like the sound of the class divide in this story and also, there’s a boy.
