The Lost Village by Camilla Sten
Feeling like a creepy read this week. The Lost Village is described as a mix of The Blair Witch Project and Midsommar, following a documentary filmmaker looking into the tainted history of an old mining town. I’ve been pretty excited about starting this one and decided I’d get some ARC reading done actually in advance of the release date!

The Frozen Crown by Greta Kelly
I didn’t manage to snag an early copy of this so I picked up the audiobook after release. The reviews are pretty promising and though I’m only a few chapters in, I like it! Magic, political maneuvering, and a young queen fighting to save her people. 

The Witch’s Heart by Genevieve Gornichec
I think I’ll give this a try this week. I’m genuinely looking forward to this, but I may decide to pick up something lighter and more contemporary. This is the story of the witch Angrboda, her family, and the lengths she will go to protect them.

The Black Coast by Mike Brooks
As I type this I’m ~25% into this book and greatly enjoying it. This is definitely going to be a fantasy of epic proportion and so many POVs, though each POV is easy to keep up with and not get muddled with another. So far, WAY COOL!

The Guest List by Lucy Foley
Umm, wow. I’m glad I picked this up after seeing several good reviews (and even one mediocre review). A fancy wedding on an isolated island where a guest turns up dead and all the characters introduced so far have some issues. It’s really fascinating!

The Camelot Betrayal by Kiersten White
I liked the first book in this series fairly well and decided to continue. I’ve heard varying opinions – from this suffers from second book syndrome to this was an excellent story and people loved it. I guess we’ll see and if it just doesn’t work for me I’ll move on to something else!

The Absinthe Earl by Sharon Lynn Fisher
So, I ran out of Audible credits much quicker than usual this month and decided to check this out since it’s included with the Audible membership. It’s a fun read and helps to pass the time while working from home or doing chores much more quickly! It’s a little cheesy, but I still want to find out what happens next.

The Mask of Mirrors by M.A. Carrick
I’ve SO been looking forward to reading this one and I’m actually going to do it before the release date! The synopsis describes it as a con artist, a vigilante, and a crime lord teaming up to save their city and I AM HERE FOR IT! 

The Bright and Breaking Sea by Chloe Neill
More awesome swashbuckling fantasy! A foundling grows up to become one of the few female captains in the Queen’s fleet. She is sent off to rescue a spy and has to get along with a veteran viscount. I suspect there could be a bit of romance too!

Daughter of the Serpentine by E.E. Knight
So far I’m really enjoying this one! If dragons are your jam and you love to root for the underdog, then there’s a pretty good chance you’ll like this too. 

From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I’ve been eyeing this book for months and now that the sequel has been released I can’t wait anymore! I’ve been in need of a fabulous fantasy romance for ages and this seems to fit the bill. At the very least, it will pass the time between now and Christmas a little more quickly!
