What’s new this month

Happy start to NaNoWriMo, aspiring authors! These are the books coming out this month from people who had the same dream as you:

2686483511/1 – Blood for Blood – by Ryan Graudin

This month starts off with a bang! The sequel to last year’s Wolf by Wolf is FINALLY here! It was one of my favorite (and fastest) reads last fall and I have been anxiously awaiting the conclusion to Yael’s quest for revenge. Yael’s made it to the ball, and even managed to shoot Hitler–but from there nothing has gone as planned. As the government and Yael both race to uncover the truth of what happened, the fate of this alternate 1950’s era world hangs in the balance. The first book was nonstop action and twist after twist, so I can only imagine this book will make me nervous until the last page!

2922349511/1 – The Bone Sparrow – by Zana Fraillon

A much-needed heart-wrenching story about refugees, families torn apart, and struggling to survive. Subhi has lived his whole life behind a fence, with only his mother’s stories to give him hope. Then Jimmie arrives on the other side of the fence, a tough girl with a book from her mother that she can’t read. Subhi and Jimmie comfort and strengthen each other with their stories.

1858485511/8 – Heartless – by Marissa Meyer

The Queen of Hearts has had a loud voice this year, but this is the most anticipated one for me. Coming off The Lunar Chronicles (retellings of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White) I think Meyer is in top form and ready for one of the wickedest fairy tale villains. Cath is a just a girl who wants to fall in love — unfortunately, she falls for the Court Joker, Jest, instead of the King of Hearts. Fate has other plans for the would-be baker and free spirit. (I just wish the cover was prettier!)

2555670911/15 – Scrappy Little Nobody – by Anna Kendrick

One of my favorite funny starlets has decided to impart her life’s story and wisdom to us! Books by comedians aren’t always as funny as they are, but I’m hoping this is one of the good ones. I’m especially interested because small, cutesy women tend to be underestimated, and I’m intrigued by the stories she can probably tell. So if you enjoy her films or her Twitter account, I think this is worth checking out!

2516430411/22 – Of Fire and Stars – by Audrey Coulthurst

I was lucky enough to read an ARC a few months ago thanks to my friend Katy! Once I saw the cover and the jacket summary I NEEDED this book! Denna and Mare are princesses from two kingdoms, thrown together when Denna becomes engaged to Mare’s brother for an alliance. The two navigate court intrigue and horse-back riding lessons together–only to realize they might be falling for each other. This story is cute and romantic and wonderful, so be sure to grab yourself a copy!
