What’s new this month

Spring is almost here, and the spring releases have finally arrived!

300954643/7 – The Bone Witch – by Rin Chupeco

A story about a girl who accidentally brings her brother back to life, revealing she’s a necromancer, or bone witch. Shunned by her community, she and her brother are taken in by an older bone witch so Tea can begin mastering her powers and other elemental magic. Trouble brews on the horizon and Tea needs to be ready. Pitched as a retelling of Memoirs of a Geisha with Name of the Wind.  I don’t often encounter retellings of modern stories, so consider me intrigued!

314512673/7 – The Song Rising – by Samantha Shannon

Book three in this dystopian fantasy series finds Paige Mahoney the new queen of London’s Underworld, desperately trying to stabilize the secret voyant community as Scion attempts to destroy them once and for all. Now her enigmatic boss Jaxon Hall is her open enemy, and a new technology known as Senshield threatens to wipe out all voyants if they do not unite and act quickly. I really enjoyed the second book and I have high hopes for this one as Paige becomes even more powerful!

257014633/7 – You’re Welcome, Universe – by Whitney Gardner

This debut novel has me very excited! Julia is a graffiti artist at Kingston School for the Deaf, but when she artfully covers up a slur directed at her best friend, her friend lands her in the principal’s office. Expelled, her mothers send her to a mainstream school, where she is the only deaf student. Isolated and outcast, she finds solace in her art—until that starts getting attention from a rival artist. I feel like I already love Julia and I can’t wait to read this story!

303126173/28 – The Gauntlet – by Karuna Riazi

An MG novel pitched as steampunk Jumanji with Middle Eastern flair. (It’s only March and these pitches are killing it!) Farah and her two best friends are sucked into the game The Gauntlet of Blood and Sand and must defeat the game’s architect to free themselves and everyone else trapped inside the game—including her baby brother Ahmed. Of course they face inventive and terrifying obstacles! I know I will end up reading this in one sitting, it sounds absolutely fantastic!

284492073/28 – Strange the Dreamer – by Laini Taylor

I read the teaser almost a year ago and I’ve been itching to get my hands on this ever since! Lazlo Strange is obsessed with finding the mythic, ruined city of Weep and learning what happened to it. There are mysteries, dead gods, living goddesses, and a bunch of other strange things. Solving the history of Weep is Lazlo’s dream, whether he wants it or not. It sounds similar to the Atlantis myth but beyond that it’s pure speculation as to what fresh wonders are in store for us!

299390473/28 – A Crown of Wishes – by Roshani Chokshi

I fell in love with the beautiful language and evocative imagery in The Star-Touched Queen and I have desperately wanted this book since its cover reveal (how can it be even more gorgeous?!) Gauri and Vikram made minor appearances in that book but they take center stage in this one as they compete to win the Tournament of Wishes and escape the constraints of their lives. In this ethereal world of myth and mystery I’m sure there are many surprises for them to uncover!
