New Releases

Most Anticipated Releases – April 2020

March is almost over and I am glad it is…been a tough month with everything going on right now in the world. I am sure April is still going to be tough but I am trying to keep positive and hope everything to start to get back to normal soon. Until then below are some new book releases that I am super excited about.

~April 7, 2020~

Ruthless Gods

By Emily A. Duncan

Synopsis:

Nadya doesn’t trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn’t belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who–and what–he’s become.

As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. Their paths are being orchestrated by someone…or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet―those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.

In her dramatic follow-up to Wicked Saints, the first book in her Something Dark and Holy trilogy, Emily A. Duncan paints a Gothic, icy world where shadows whisper, and no one is who they seem, with a shocking ending that will leave you breathless.


Meet Me At Midnight

By Jessica Pennington

Synopsis:

They have a love-hate relationship with summer.

Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to be spend thier summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year – in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic summer yet.

But their plans are thrown in sudden jeopardy when their feud causes their families to be kicked out of their beloved lake houses. Once in their new accommodations, Sidney expects the prank was to continue as usual. But then she gets a note – Meet me at midnight. And Asher has a proposition for her: join forces for one last summer of epic pranks, against a shared enemy – the woman who kicked them out.

Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.


Gotham High

By Melissa de la Cruz and Thomas Pitilli (Illustrations)

Synopsis:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Alex and Eliza and The Witches of East End comes a reimagining of Gotham for a new generation of readers. Before they became Batman, Catwoman, and The Joker, Bruce, Selina, and Jack were high schoolers who would do whatever it took – even destroy the ones they love – to satisfy their own motives.

After being kicked out of his boarding school, 16-year-old Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City to find that nothing is as he left it. What once was his family home is now an empty husk, lonely but haunted by the memory of is parents’ murder. Selina Kyle, once the innocent girl next door , now rules over Gotham High School with a dangerous flair, aided by the class clown, Jack Napier.

When a kidnapping rattles the school, Bruce seeks answers as the dark and troubled knight – but is he actually the pawn? Nothing is ever as it seems, especially at Gotham High, where the aprties and romances are of the highest stakes…and where everyone is a suspect.

With enchanting art by Thomas Pitilli, this new graphic novel is just as intoxicating as it is chilling, in which dearest friends turn into greatest enemies – all within the hallways of Gotham High!

The Deck of Omens (The Devouring Gray #2)

By Christine Lynn Herman

Synopsis:

The teenagers of Four Paths must save their home.

Though the Beast is seemingly subdued for now, a new threat looms in Four Paths: a corruption seeping from the Gary into the forest. And with the other Founders preoccupied by their tangled alliances and fraying relationships, only May Hawthorne seems to realize the danger. But saving the town she loves means seeking aid from the person her family despises most – her and Justin’s father.

May’s father isn’t the only newcomer in town – Isaac Sullivan’s older brother has also returned, seeking forgiveness for the role he played in Isaac’s troubled past. But Isaac isn’t ready to let go of his family’s history, especially when that history might hold the key that he and Violet Saunders need to destroy the Gray and the monster within it.

Harper Carlisle isn’t ready to forgive, either. Two devastating betrayals have left her isolated from her family and uncertain who to trust. As the corruption becomes impossible to ignore, Harper must learn to control her newfound powers in order to protect Four Paths. But the only people who can help her do that are the ones who have hurt her the most.

With the veil between the Gray and the town growing ever thinner, all of the Founder descendants must put their grievances with one another aside to stop the corruption and kill the Beast once and for all.

But maybe the monster they truly need to slay has never been the Beast…

Incendiary (Hollow Crown #1)

By Zoraida Cordova

I am Renata Convida.

I have lived a hundred stolen lives.

Now I live my own.

Renata Convida was only a child when he was kidnapped by the King’s Justice and brought to the luxurious palace of Andalucia. As a Robari, the rarest and most feared of the magical Moria, Renata’s ability to steal memories from royal enemies enabled the King’s Wrath, a siege that resulted in the deaths of thousands of her own people.

Now Renata is one of the Whispers, rebel spies working against the crown and helping the remaining Moria escape the kingdom bent on their destruction. The Whispers may have been rescued Renata from the palace years ago, but she cannot escape their mistrust and hatred – or the overpowering memories of the hundreds of souls she turned “hollow” during her time in the palace.

When Dez, the commander of her unit, is taken captive by the notorious Sangrado Prince, Renata will do anything to save the boy whose love makes her place among the Whispers bearable. But a disastrous rescue attempt means Renata must return to the palace under cover and complete Dez’s top secret mission. Can Renata convince her former captors that she remains loyal, even as she burns for vengeance against the brutal, enigmatic prince? Her life and the fate of the Moria depend on it.

But returning to the palace stirs childhood memories long locked away. As Renata grows more deeply embedded in the politics of the royal court, she uncovers a secret in her past that could change the entire fate of the kingdom – and end the war that has cost her everything.


What are some of the new releases for April are you looking forward? Leave me a comment and I will check them out.

Have a great day, be safe, stay at home (if you can) and take care of yourself!

Review

Rating: 💜💜💜💜💜

First, I would like to thank The Fantastic Flying Book Club and the publisher for giving me an opportunity to read e-ARC of Malice and give an honest review in return.

The book started out a little slow but it did pick up speed later in the book and continue on fast paced afterwards. I thought the time-travel part of the book was interesting, the way the author wrote it was intriguing, it was a different way of approaching time-travel. The book has a lot in it, it has future apocalypse story line, adventure, romance, and time-travel.

The main character, Alice is a typical teenager who all of sudden start getting messages from her future self. The future Alice informs Alice that she has come to help stop the person who is the virus maker that wipes half of the country in the future. She tells her that the person who invents it is someone who is in the high school.

The process of how Alice’s was piecing together who was the inventor of the future virus was nice to see and you kept second-guessing yourself who it was and I was pretty shocked to find out who ended up being in the end. I like that present-time Alice decided to take a different direction on handling the virus maker because the way future Alice wanted her to do was in my opinion extreme and it would have morally affected Alice if she would have done it that way.

Overall, the writing style was done really well and Pintip pulls you in and makes you want to turn the page to see what happens next. It made me want to continue on to find what happens and if Alice listens to future self. Unfortunately, this is a standalone story, I was a little disappoint because I really wanted to know if what Alice did in the end actually work or not.


Favorite Quotes

“FLAMING MONKEYS. Can’t you see a girl is dying here? Go. Away.”

“Outside of your wildest dreams, that is.”

You’ll do much worse before you become me.”

“My loyalty to the future doesn’t extend to betraying my best friend. Sorry, not the slightest bit sorry.”

“I made a decision. I took an action. And the future will be forever changed because of it.”

“The truth is, if the future is right, if killing you is the only way to save all of those people, I would do it. No single life is enough to justify all that death. All that pain.

“My older self is jaded,” I hurry on. “She’s lost so much, she hurts so deeply, that she can’t see the only thing that might save our world. Hope.”

“It’s changing his relationship with that very same humanity.”

“One step, one kindness, one moment at a time.”

“Sometime, even soul mates won’t fit together if they meet at the wrong age.”

Review

Rating: 💜💜💜💜

Lie To Me is perfect teens/pre-teens readers because it has mystery/thriller, romance, representation of mental illness and discovering sexuality.

Here are pros and cons of the novel that I enjoyed and didn’t.

Pros:

Relationship between Amelia and her brother Hunter. Also, her relationship with her parents were strong and you can tell that they were supportive.

Representation of depression and mental illness was addressed in the book really well.

Representation of bisexuality and detailed description of Amelia trying to figure out how she was figuring was done great. It was refreshing to see it done well.

Overall, the book was good, fun and easy read. I got it done in two days.

Cons

I would have like more on mystery/thriller portion of the story play out better.

Less concentration on the romance between Amelia and Liam.

Favorite Quotes

“Yeah, it’s just this one problem about how big an area will be hit by the nuclear meltdown when you inevitably start dating him and your brother finds out.”

“Oh, come on.” She squeezes my arm. “You know I’m just teasing. But he is hot, and you’ve run into him twice in one day. It almost feels like fate.” “Twice in one day at the school we both go to”, I say dryly. “It’s like a rom-com.”

“Personally, I like to take satisfaction from all levels of victory. It’s really just an opportunity to brag about how great you are; you don’t need to mention the part about unworthy your opponent was.”

“And, I realize, I might want to be his person who cares. I don’t feel bad about that, though. Not at all.”

“As soon as I say it, I want to pull the words back down my throat because calling someone perfect on a first date is so incredibly dorky.”

Blog Tour (Review & Favorite Quotes) – Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen

Hello! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen. The tour is being hosted by Fantastic Flying Book Club.

I am excited to share my review and favorite quotes. This was the first time I read anything from Abigail and I heard some amazing things about the book so I was happy that Fantastic Flying Book Club gave me the opportunity to be part of the blog tour.

Loveboat, Taipei (Loveboat, Taipei #1)

By Abigail Hing Wen

Publisher: HarperCollins

Release Date: January 7th, 2020

Genre: Young Adult, Fiction, Romance, Contemporary, Travel, Asian Literature

Synopsis:

For fans of Crazy Rich Asians or Jane Austen Comedy of Manners, with a hint of La La Land

When eighteen-year-old Ever Wong’s parents send her from Ohio to Taiwan to study Mandarin for the summer, she finds herself thrust among the very over-achieving kids her parents have always wanted her to be, including Rick Woo, the Yale-bound prodigy profiled in the Chinese newspapers since they were nine – and her parents’ yardstick for her never-measuring-up life.

Unbeknownst to her parents, however, the program is actually an infamous teen meet-market nicknamed Loveboat, where the kids are more into clubbing than calligraphy and drinking snake-blood sake than touring scared shrines.

Free for the first time, Ever sets out to break all her parents’ uber-strict rules – but how far can she go before she breaks her own heart?

Review

Rating: 💜💜💜💜💜

I don’t usually read contemporary novels because I have never found ones that kept my interest to continue to read them before but this year I have found several books that I really enjoy and Loveboat, Taipei is one of those books.

Loveboat, Taipei is about self-discovery from all of the characters but mostly Ever Wong. She was forced to go a summer camp in Taiwan, her parents sent her there so that she could learn Mandarin to be better prepare for college to become a doctor. Even though Ever doesn’t want to become a doctor, she wants to go to school for dancing but to honor her parents tradition she is foregoing her dreams. Ever isn’t the only one who struggling with going after what they are truly want in life or do what their parents’ and tradition want them to do.

I thought that the characters were well-developed, Wen wrote them so that we can feel their angst, tension, see the sacrifices their families, and their struggles coming to term on what they want to do and what tradition dictates for them throughout the book. Loveboat, Taipei is an relate-able to all readers that struggle with what expectations their families want for them and finding out who they are truly want. All of the characters show a lot of growth from when they first came to camp and when they left especially Ever.

Loveboat, Taipei being Wen’s debut novel, it was a really good debut. I am looking forward to see what else Wen comes out with.

Favorite Quotes

“He’s tall and leanly buff – I’ve never seen a real-life guy with so much prime real estate in arm muscles.”

“It’s that six-degrees of separation thing. Only for Chinese Americans, it’s like, two degrees, know what I mean?”

“In the mall back home, heads sometimes turned when I walked by with my family, but now, my Asian-Americanness is invisible, erased like a shaken Etch A Sketch. It’s an unexpected relief.

“Nerd camp with Wong-family level regulations. Everything about the Dragon – including her Hokkien accent and short, permed hair – reminds me of Mom.”

“As I lunge and whirl my bo staff, dancing to the ancient drum beats, I feel all the parts of myself coming together: glad that a part of me is Chinese, a part of me is American, and all of me is simply me.”

“We are powerful. We can be anymore we want to be – daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, citizens, human beings. We showed Taipei that tonight. And in the days to come, we will show the world.”

Blog Tour (Review & Favorite Quotes) – Forgotten (House of Night Other World #3) By P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

Hello! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Forgotten (House of Night Other World #3) by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. The tour is being hosted by Fantastic Flying Book Club.

I am excited to share my review and favorite quotes. I love the House of Night series and I was very excited to be able to review and be part of the blog tour for Forgotten.

by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

Publisher: Blackstone Publishing

Release Date: October 29th 2019 

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Synopsis:

Before he was freed by Neferet, Kalona was imprisoned within the earth for centuries because of the Darkness in his heart. But what happened to the Other World’s Kalona? It’s as though he’s been forgotten, or maybe he never existed at all … 

In the present, Other Neferet may have left her House of Night, but she has far from given up her goal of immortality and world domination. As she operates in secret to gain access to Old Magick, the new High Priestess, Anastasia Langford, works toward peace and acceptance for the vampyres of the Other World. But just as Other Kevin’s broken heart will take time to heal, peace in that world will also take time and work—and not all of the Other World vampyres want peace. After all, why should they return to being shunned by humans, especially when they’ve had a taste of how it feels to be in power? 

Meanwhile, Zoey is desperate to help rid the Other World of Neferet once and for all, and not knowing what’s going on over there is eating away at her. But, as the Nerd Herd warns, it’s far too dangerous to call on Old Magick time and again. As a distraction, she throws herself into her work and attempts to bring the humans and vampyres of Tulsa closer together with the first human-vampyre swim meet in history! It’s too bad that something always seems to go wrong whenever the stakes are high. 

What happens when worlds clash and powers that should be left alone are awakened? Can Other Kevin and his world heal from the wounds Neferet continues to inflict? Can Old Magick ever truly be harnessed and used for good? Or will Darkness extinguish Light and leave our heroes broken, hopeless, and as forgotten as Kalona of the Silver Wings? Don’t miss this second to last volume in the House of Night Other World saga!

Review

Rating: 💜💜💜💜💜

First I would like to thank The Fantastic Flying Book Club and Blackstone Publishing for selecting me to be part of this blog tour. I have been a fan of House of Night series since I discover them in 2011 and I was happy that P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast decided to do another set of books in HoN world with the Otherworld series.

The book begins with the story of the Other Erebus and Kalona, it shows how Kalona changes and makes a big sacrifice in the end in of his story. In the Otherworld, Other Kevin and Other Zoey with the Nerd Herd have defeated Other Neferet from her evil plans. Of course, they thought they defeated her but she does survive and comes up with another plan to become powerful. She aligns herself with the White Bull to achieve her plan of destruction and immortality. On the way, she enlist Other Lynette who is a human and becomes her handmaiden.

The book has a lot of plot twists and go into different directions which I thought was really good and kept me turning the pages. The book mainly focuses on Neferet and her handmaiden Lynette. It goes into how Neferet is trying to achieve her quest to become a real Goddess while keeping the Other Kevin and Stark off her tracks. We also see Zoey and the Nerd Herd back in the House of Night world setting and how they are dealing with trying to work with humans to allows fledglings to participate in other things outside of the school.

The book deals with grief and how it effects the persons afterward. It was nice to see Other Grandma Redbird and reading how she help Other Kevin and Stark on trying to move on from their lost and not be afraid to grieve and show it. I thought it was nice touch in the book because you really don’t see address often in books.

I really enjoy this book and I would recommend the Otherworld series to anyone who has read the HoN series. Definitely have to read those first before going into this series. It was so nice to see Zoey and Nerd Herd back again. I can’t wait for the fourth book to see what happens next.

Also I love this cover!!! It is gorgeous!


Favorite Quotes

“Joy isn’t easy or inherent. It is a choice, and not always an easy one – not at first.”

“No, my sweet boy. Do not hide your grief. There is no shame in showing your tears. Kevin, being a man means claiming all your power.”

“Well, yeah, but I was talking about hormones. There must be thousands of kids in there.”

Okay, novices. Watch how it’s done. She stood, cupped her hands around her mouth and expertly cheered, GO IN HARD! COME OUT WET! R-A-V-E-N-S! RAVENS! RAVENS! RAVENS!”

“Another win for me, she thought. And I will keep winning, especially now that I am allied with someone who understands what is most important in life – power – and the safety it affords. Choosing to follow this vampyre who will soon be immortal and rule the world was the smartest decision I ever made.”

Welcome to my blog spot for The Night Weaver by Monique Snyman hosted by Good Choice Reading.

By Monique Snyman

Genre: Young Adult, Horror

Publisher: Vesuvian Books

Release Date: October 15, 2019

SHADOW GROVE IS A PERFECTLY PLEASANT TOWN…

Shadow Grove isn’t a typical town. Bad things happen here. Children disappear, one after the other, and nobody is doing anything about it. Parents don’t grieve, missing posters don’t line the streets, and the sheriff seems unconcerned.

Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cleary lives on the outskirts of Shadow Grove, next to the creepy forest everyone pretends doesn’t exist. Usually the forest is filled with an eerie calm, an unmistakable graveyard solemnity. But the trees have started whispering, forgotten creatures are stirring, and the nights feel darker than ever.

Something is stalking the residents of Shadow Grove, changing them into brain-dead caricatures of themselves. It’s up to Rachel to stop the devouring of her hometown before all is destroyed and everyone she loves is forever lost.

The story begins with an the mystery behind the abduction of children in a small town called Shadow Grove. Not only are children are missing, certain mothers start acting weird and something evil is plaguing the small town. The teens in the story are the only ones who are concern about the missing children especially the main character Rachel Cleary who wants to help get the children back.

This book is a mixture of dark fantasy, horror, mystery and faeries in it. It introduces two realms – where there is a creature that was let into the human realm called The Night Weaver which is really scary and she causing a lot of havoc on the small town.

I really enjoy this book…it started out with a mystery and scary parts to the stories and then it went into the fae realm which brought together on solving the mystery of how, why and what was taking the children. The plot is intriguing and the writing flows nicely. The characters were well developed and are easily connected to.

About the Author

Sorting out the mess in her head is particularly irksome before she’s ingested a specific amount of coffee, which is equal to half the the recommended intake of water for humans per day. When she’s not playing referee to her imaginary friends or trying to to overdose on caffeine, she’s doing something with words – be it writing, reading, or fixing all the words

Monique Snyman lives in Pretoria, South Africa, with her husband and an adorable Chihuahua. She’s the author of MUTI NATION, a horror novel set in South Africa, and the Bram Stoker Award nominated novel, THE NIGHT WEAVER, which is the first installment in dark fantasy series for young adults.
