Hi everybody ! Trang’s back with another listopia posts 😀 I’ve spent a few hours reading about all the books coming out this month (so I can ask my family what books I want for my birthday *muahhha*) and I wanted to share with you my most anticipated releases ! So if you are looking to read some new books coming out this month, this post might help you 😉
The Book of Dust by Phillip Pullman : The author of Golden Compass returns for a trilogy prequel to Northern Lights series. “La Belle Sauvage, is set 10 years before the events of His Dark Materials, and the rest of the story takes place 20 years after that: in fact, 10 years after Lyra comes home to Jordan College after her adventure in the Arctic at the end of The Amber Spyglass.” – Penguin Random House
Under the Pendulum Sun by Jeannette Ng: Thanks to my fellow bloggers for making me discovering this new book with an extremely original book cover (SEE PICTURE BELOW). Reviews are calling it a gothic fantasy tale. This is one of the time where the cover completely thew me off and making me want to read the book !
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli :“In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be dark—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death bringer.” The typical YA fantasy nowadays where two camps are fighting each other! I don’t know why, I’m always attracted to this kind of story haha. AND DRAGONS.
Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray : The 3rd book in The Diviners series! :O WOO
Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore : Something about the cover makes it seem very mesmerizing. “For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish.” How to make your lovers vanish 101, fall in love with them. Well nowadays, this advice still works LOL
I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll : “What would it take to make you intervene?When Ella Longfield overhears two attractive young men flirting with teenage girls on a train, she thinks nothing of it—until she realises they are fresh out of prison and her maternal instinct is put on high alert. But just as she’s decided to call for help, something stops her.”
This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis : “Sasha discovers that her by-the-book life began by ending another’s: the twin sister she absorbed in the womb.” YEAH A TWIN ABSORBED, this kind of thing intrigues me.
What The Hell Did I just Read by David Wong (John Dies at the End #3): I heard a lot of good things about this series 😉 A dark thriller humour ! For those of you who don’t know about this series you can click here for the first book.
Dear Martin by Nic Stone : Everybody who loves THE HATE U GIVE would love this book. “Raw, captivating, and undeniably real, Nic Stone joins industry giants Jason Reynolds and Walter Dean Myers as she boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning debut.”
the sun and her flowers by rupi kaur : IT’S RUPI KAUR WITH ANOTHER COLLECTION OF POEMS. DO I NEED TO SAY MORE? ❤
Without Merit by Colleen Hoover : “Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep.” Just that line over there, like all those lies intrigued me.
CODE GIRLS by Lisa Mundy : A book about women who were the programmers in the World War II. How bad ass is that?!
Uncanny by Sarah Fine : Living in a distant future where Ceraphin, a brain interface computer has the capacity of recording every moment of our lives. However, Cora doesn’t remember anything on the night that her sister died and she has to discover the truth. Reviewers have described it as strange and disturbing. *SOLD*
Children of The Fleet by Orson Scott Card : Ender’s Game is back ! “MinCol now runs Fleet School on the old Battle School station, and still recruits very smart kids to train as leaders of colony ships, and colonies.”
