Anticipated 2017 Releases: Part Two

Anticipated 2017 Releases- Part 2

Hello again my fellow bookworms! I doubt anyone would remember at this point, but at the very beginning of the year (when I first started this blog), I posted the first half of my long list of 2017 book releases that I’m looking forward to. Well, I’m a bit late posting this, but today I’m bringing you a list of all the books releasing in the second half of 2017 that I’m excited for!

Which, if you think about it, means that I should be celebrating my 6th month blogiversary! I’m so proud of how far my little blog has already come, I haven’t always been able to post as frequently as I would like to, but I truly appreciate everyone that has taken time out of their day to read my silly posts and talk to me about books. I’ve already made some great friends, and that alone is something to be thankful for!

Anyways, on to the books! Clicking on a book’s title will take you to its Goodreads page.

June Wrap-Up

Another month came, and another month gone. I don’t know how time manages to move so incredibly quickly, but I feel like I take a breath and suddenly I’m at the end of the year. I mean 2017 is half over!! I still feel like we just changed over the calendars from 2016!

Overall, June was a pretty great month for me, I’ve spent most of it relaxing and with friends. But I’ll get into the personal details later, first here’s all the bookish stuff aka the stuff you actually want to read.

Review: Mask of Shadows

MoS cover 2Title: Mask of Shadows

Author: Linsey Miller

Series: #1 in a duology

Genre: YA, fantasy, LGBTQIAP+

Format: eARC from Sourcebooks Fire via Netgalley

Release Date: August 29th, 2017

Synopsis: Perfect for fantasy fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo, the first book in this new duology features a compelling gender fluid main character, impressive worldbuilding, and fast-paced action.
Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class―and the nobles who destroyed their home.
When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand―the Queen’s personal assassins, named after the rings she wears―Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge.
But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.

TTT- Series I've Been Meaning to Start

As soon as I saw the prompt for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, I knew I had to participate. I am the QUEEN of unstarted series. Literally I have a small fortune sitting on my shelf just in series that I’ve bought and haven’t started. It’s sad, really. But it should definitely make for an interesting post!
