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.
As per the pitch, Tamsyn Muir’s GIDEON THE NINTH ‘unveils a solar system of swordplay, cut-throat politics, and lesbian necromancers’. If you can’t tell, I (Hollis) really don’t care which pitch or blurb I use, I’m just so so excited about this book, and want you to be, too!
Laura Weymouth’s sophomore novel, A TREASON OF THORNS, is alt-historical-fiction fantasy about a girl who is in exile after her father commits treason. It’s about living Houses and grief. And many more subjects — some potentially triggering. The author has listed content warnings on the GR page and refers to her website for more information. I (Hollis) read her first book, which was almost painfully depressing and simultaneously lovely, and I’m keen to see how I fare with this one.
THE TESTAMENTS by Margaret Atwood is one of the most loudly shouted about releases this year. A sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale is the book most fans never expected. The story is set fifteen years after the first book and promises to answer all the questions we’ve ever had about Gilead.
FRANKLY IN LOVE by David Yoon has such an interesting cover and knowing that surname as YA lovers do, we’re all intrigued about this one. This is a YA contemporary about young love and diversity. Frank Li is a US-Korean teen in love with a white girl and his parents will not approve. It sounds humourous, fun with some serious topics.
