Happy Friday Eve Book Lovers!!
I was looking at my upcoming pre-orders and I thought why not talk about the books I’m really looking forward to this fall. Fall is my favorite season and not just for the weather, but because publishers release so many good books in the Fall.
I’m really looking forward to this weekend, because I feel like I haven’t had much reading time this month. I really want to get through my August TBR; especially with all the amazing books being released this fall. My goal of reading through all the books on my shelves that haven’t been read yet hasn’t been as successful as I hoped, but lets hope that changes before 2016 is over. I’m must say I’m super excited for all of these releases.These are 4 very strong and amazing writers. They all have other series or releases under their belt and I expect these books to be nothing but amazing. I’ve listed the blurbs under each title from Goodreads so that you can see if you like it and want to read it.
1. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (August 30, 2016)
This is part of a series. The first book is An Ember in the Ashes. It was recently announce that there will be two more books in this series.
A Torch Against the Night takes readers into the heart of the Empire as Laia and Elias fight their way north to liberate Laia’s brother from the horrors of Kauf Prison. Hunted by Empire soldiers, manipulated by the Commandant, and haunted by their pasts, Laia and Elias must outfox their enemies and confront the treacherousness of their own hearts.
In the city of Serra, Helene Aquilla finds herself bound to the will of the Empire’s twisted new leader, Marcus. When her loyalty is questioned, Helene finds herself taking on a mission to prove herself—a mission that might destroy her, instead.
2. Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi (August 30, 2016)
I think as of right now this book is a standalone, but we all know how quickly that can change. Her first series was the Shatter Me Trilogy, which I absolutely loved.
There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.
But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit–and with a liar by her side in a land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father, Alice must first find herself–and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.
3. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (September 6, 2016)
This is the 5th book in a 7 book series. If you haven’t heard of it this is part of the Throne of Glass Series. So far I’ve really enjoyed it. I actually still need to finish Queens of Shadows. She is also the author for The Court of Thorns and Roses Trilogy.
The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don’t.
As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
4.Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (September 27, 2016)
This is the 2nd book in a duology. The 1st book is Six of Crows which I thought was amazing. If you haven’t read it you really should check it out. Leigh Bardugo is also the author of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy.
