So, quite honestly I haven’t been anticipating any April releases this last month. Usually I’m having a look on GoodReads every week or so to see what’s coming. But I just haven’t done that this month, so coincidentally this will be a very short post compared to the usual ones.
I will still be adding a book or two that are 2nd, 3rd, etc books in series that I want to start!
Genre: YA Science Fiction
Publication Date: 4th April, 2017
Publishers: Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that’s now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth’s robotic “mech” armies for decades with no end in sight.
After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel’s programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis–even though her plan to win the war will kill him.
Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel’s devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.

The legions are about to be unleashed, and no human, rogue dragon or former dragon slayer can stand against the coming horde. Book 4 of 5 in The Talon Saga from New York Times bestselling author Julie Kagawa.
Dragon hatchling Ember Hill was never prepared to find love at all–dragons do not suffer human emotions–let alone the love of a human and a former dragonslayer, at that. With ex-soldier Garret dying at her feet after sacrificing his freedom and his life to expose the deepest of betrayals, Ember knows only that nothing she was taught by dragon organization Talon is true. About humans, about rogue dragons, about herself and what she’s capable of doing and feeling.
In the face of great loss, Ember vows to stand with rogue dragon Riley against the dragon-slaying Order of St. George and her own twin brother Dante–the heir apparent to all of Talon, and the boy who will soon unleash the greatest threat and terror dragonkind has ever known.
Talon is poised to take over the world, and the abominations they have created will soon take to the skies, darkening the world with the promise of blood and death to those who refuse to yield.

Celestine North lives in a society that demands perfection. After she was branded Flawed by a morality court, Celestine’s life has completely fractured–all her freedoms gone.
Since Judge Crevan has declared her the number one threat to the public, she has been a ghost, on the run with Carrick–the only person she can trust.
But Celestine has a secret–one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to the ground. A secret that has already caused countless people to go missing.
Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine. With tensions building, Celestine must make a choice: save just herself or to risk her life to save all Flawed people.
And, most important of all, can she prove that to be human in itself is to be Flawed?
Well I think that is all, only short this month, but oh well! I am trying to focus on the Beat The Backlist challenged which is reading book that were released in 2016 or earlier, so that is possibly why I haven’t bothered looking into new releases. Yes I know that Lifeblood & Strange the Dreamer are both 2017 releases and so is Traitor To The Throne which I am currently reading, but I’m trying to get there! The first 2 were eGalleys so I had to get to them otherwise my feedback ratio would go to shit and I have been waiting for Traitor To The Throne to come out for about a year! So I have my reasons, but now I will be concentrating on 2016 or prior releases.
