So some new books came in this week! Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten to finishing them quite yet, but have read books by the authors.

● Up first we have White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout. It’s the first book in her most recent series The Dark Elements . Though I have not read it yet, I’ve read books of her. Her Lux series was astonishing and was well worth the read. Reviews for both of these are all good. She brings the characters to life and they can be truly connected with. I don’t know a whole lot about the series other then that it is set in a high fantasy world with demons. Completely hyped for this book regardless, totally going to be reading within the next few weeks.

● Next we have The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. Both of her series are absolutely amazing and magnificent. This book is a prequel novella bindup to her debut series, Throne of Glass . These stories follow some of Celaena’s adventures before the series kicks off. The series is high fantasy and keeps you on your toes continuously. I can’t wait to see this portion of Celaena’s past before the first book.

 

● Third, we have the conclusion to Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, Dreams of Gods and Monsters . This trilogy is unique in every aspect, whether it’s the writing style or the cast of characters.  Each character in these books is unlike the other. The books are in an unexpected high fantasy world mixed with reality that form a beautiful story. The first two books kept me reading nonstop. They were such fun but also action-packed with a tinge of suspense. The main character, Karou, lives in Prague but her family life is incredibly unique and then a whirlwind of events happen that change the course of her life and her true self. If you want a different kind of fantasy, definitely recommend this trilogy.

● Lastly we have A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. This is the second book in the Shades of Magic trilogy. This world also is set in a high fantasy world. The world is different parallel Londons where the main character can move between them. Each has aspects that are all recognizable from English history. The only thing to know going into this series is that our main character, Kell, gets himself into some trouble and has to fix it without drawing attention to himself.

 

So those are the new books that I will be getting to fairly soon and am hyped to read! What are you reading this summer?
