My TBR for August was mostly a success as I read all of the books on my list bar one. So, I have decided to make another one for September! My goal is to get caught up with The Folk of the Air series and then get through some of my ARCs. Here is my September 2019 TBR Pile:
The Wicked King by Holly Black
I have heard that for mortals, the feeling of falling in love is very like the feeling of fear.
Jude has tricked Cardan onto the throne, binding him to her for a year and a day. But the new High King does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undimmed. Meanwhile, a traitor in the court is scheming against her. Jude must fight for her life and the lives of those she loves, all while battling her own complicated feelings for Cardan. Now a year and a day seems like no time at all . . .
I finished The Cruel Prince last month so I want to finish the sequel too! I absolutely adored the previous book and I have very high hopes for the follow up. Not to mention, I am so pumped for Queen of Nothing! This is a fairly short read so I don’t think it will take me as long to finish.
Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron
THERE’S MAGIC IN HER BLOOD.
Explosive fantasy set in a West African world of magic and legend, where one girl must sacrifice her life, year by year, to gain the power necessary to fight the mother she has never been good enough for...
I was lucky enough to be granted a wish on Netgalley for this book and I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. As a result, I’m making it a priority this month to finish all my ARCs and get my reviews up for them! I am so so proud and happy to see some representation in the fantasy genre for people of colour in Kingdom of Souls.
Our Bloody Pearl By D.N Bryn
The ocean is uncontrollable and dangerous. But to the sirens who swim the warm island waters, it’s a home more than worth protecting from the humans and their steam-propelled ships. Between their hypnotic voices and the strength of their powerful tails, sirens have little to fear.
That is, until the ruthless pirate captain, Kian, creates a device to cancel out their songs...
This is not an ARC but I was approached by the author of this book about receiving a copy for review. As soon as I read the synopsis I had to accept! I absolutely love stories about pirates and the like. Its that element of fantasy/mythology that I wish there was more of in YA.
