Howling Dark by Christopher Ruocchio
Finally time to check out the second book because Demon in White is out later this month!! Gotta catch up and know what’s going on for the new installment. These books are quite long, so I probably will finish up the audiobook just in time for the new book’s release date.
Ashes of the Sun by Django Wexler
YAYYYY!! I’m so excited to finally sit down and actually read this! I’ve greatly enjoyed Django Wexler’s other series and hope this one is just as engaging and well written. The synopsis sounds pretty fab.
Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott
I’m reallllly hoping this is as awesome as it sounds!! I just want some more butt whooping women conquering galaxies!
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
This series had honestly been the coolest reading/listening experience. Clearly it’s thoroughly binge worthy and I’ve been doing just that. I am so excited to see how this journey wraps up!
The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty
Oh my GOSH I am loving this book!!! I’m already more than 30% into the book and I’m just excited to turn pages and see what’s going to happen next. I hope the ending is a banger.
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I decided to scrap the audiobook I had planned for last week because I just wasn’t enjoying it. Ended up picking up Illuminae and now here we are. Clearly I’m just going to binge read (okay, listen to) this series. The audio performance is amazing and the hype is real!
Steel Crow Saga by Paul Krueger
I’ve had this on my Audible wishlist for several months now and decided to pick it up finally. It’s interesting but I’m not sure I love it yet and may decide to pick up something else instead. Or maybe I’ll just trudge along. If you’ve read this, what did you think of it?
I’m also finishing up A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians this week. It’s a fantastic book but has definitely taken a bit longer to get through than I anticipated!
A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians by H.G. Parry
While I expected to enjoy this, I didn’t expect to love it quite so much as I am!! I’m ~20% in and its fantastic and imaginative and puts a new spin on the fight for freedom.
Spirit by A.C. Cobble
The ebook edition of this was released earlier this month and I’ve been checking Audible periodically and the audiobook is finally out!!! I can’t wait to start listening to this book this week. This is one of my very favorite independently published series and the narration is phenomenal. You can’t go wrong with Simon Vance!
*I linked to Amazon because there’s no real detail on the Goodreads page for this book.
The Angel of the Crows by Katherine Addison
Wow, surprise – it’s a Sherlock Homes retelling!!! I was quite excited and have been really enjoying this book.
We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson
I’ll be starting this after finishing up the Angel of the Crows and it sounds pretty awesome! Assassins! A princess prisoner in her own castle! WOOO!
The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso
It’s no secret that I loved Melissa Caruso’s first trilogy, so when an ARC showed up of the first book in her new series I was THRILLED! It’s set in the same world, some time after the events of the first trilogy and this time the main character is the daughter of one of the Witch Lords. It’ll be cool to get a different perspective of things this time around!
By Force Alone by Lavie Tidhar
This certainly isn’t what I expected out of this book. Based on the synopsis (political satire!) I expected it to have a certain dry humor that is actually non-existent. Fair warning. It’s not funny. It is an interesting take on the Arthurian legends for sure.
Empire of Silence by Christopher Ruocchio
This is actually a re-read in anticipation of the third book in the series coming out in July. I loved this book, but it’s dense and so much happens that I couldn’t remember what was going on when I picked up the second book. You can check out my review here.
