April 2018 Anticipated Releases

New Header Image (12)

Okay, so again I only have 3 books on this list again but again I am really keen for them! I already have an eARC of one of them and I can’t wait to get my hands on the other two. However, the pool I’m working at is closing for the season in April and won’t open again until September. So as I will be living off the money I make in my at home beauty salon I won’t be able to purchase any books for a while. I will be relying on my huge TBR pile and on the Scribd app.

New Blog Title

Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.

Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.

Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.

Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…

And she’ll need to play.

New Blog Title (8)

Leah Burke—girl-band drummer, master of deadpan, and Simon Spier’s best friend from the award-winning Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—takes center stage in this novel of first love and senior-year angst.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.

April 2017 Anticipated Releases

Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 9.38.13 pm

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!


Anticipated Releases

Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray

31423196

 Genre: YA Science Fiction
Pages: 512
Publication Date: 4th April, 2017
Publishers: Little Brown Books for Young Readers

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

Legion by Julie Kagawa

28821387

 Genre: YA Fantasy 
Pages: 384
Publication Date: 25th April, 2017
Publishers: Harlequin Teen

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

Genre: YA Science Fiction Dystopian 
Pages: 352
Publication Date: 4th April, 2017
Publishers: Feiwel & Friends

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.
