Happy Fae Friday everyone! I had such a fun day yesterday, it’s a miracle. I went ice skating first, and then had homemade spinach flatbread with a friend! It was super tasty.
It’s also almost officially spring time here. Our clocks go forward one hour next weekend! I actually really enjoy daylight savings time, because we are so far north, it really makes a difference. I’m excited to be outside late at night while it’s still light out.
Fae Friday is hosted by Kristy @ Caffeinated Fae, and you can find all future prompts on her blog! All you gotta do is link back to her page and have fun with the prompt! Don’t forget to use #FaeFriday on your socials, so we can all find each other’s posts! Here is this week’s prompt:female characters
“It’s #FaeFriday and spring Equinox is on the 20th that is why I want to know what is a book (or some books) you’re looking forward to this spring?”
I’ve actually talked a lot about new releases already, but you know what I haven’t talked about at all? NetGalley arcs. I happen to have three that are coming out this spring, so I’m going to list those and why I’m excited for them!
The Shadow of the Gods
By John Gwynne
Expected publication: 6 May 2021
As some of you may know, I’m reading this book now. I think I’m actually going to be able to finish it today, which is good news because that means you’ll be getting a review soon. So far it’s been really good. It’s not necessarily slow, but there are chapters in which not a lot happens. But despite this, the writing is really compelling, and there’s a sense of mystery that makes you want to continue reading. This is the first book I’m reading by John Gwynne, so I think I’ll definitely pick up his other books sometime.
By Erin Bowman
Expected publication: 20 April 2021
This book is being pitched as Mad Max meets Gunslinger Girl, which honestly sounds dope. The main characters has a map on her back that leads to a supposed paradise. Obviously that makes her a prime target in a land which is basically desert on steroids. Her family gets kidnapped, and the MC, Delta, sets out to find them. This book seems like a fun and adventurous read, so I’m hoping I have time to pick it up at the end of the month. Especially because I really need to get my feedback ratio back to normal, lol.
The Library of the Dead
By T.L. Huchu
Expected publication: 1 June 2021
This book combines a lot of things that I find very awesome. 1: ghosts. 2: Edinburgh. 3: Zimbabwean magic. Okay, I’ve never actually read about Zimbabwean magic before, but that’s also why I’m excited to read this. The MC, Ropa, dropped out of school in order to become a ghost talker. She conveys messages from the dead to the living. However, when the ghosts start telling her that someone is bewitching children, she has to investigate Edinburgh’s dark secrets. I’m really excited to read this, because you all know I love a good ghost story!
That’s it for today! What are some books you’re looking forward to reading this spring? Do your reading preferences change with the season? Let me know!
