What’s new this month

Fall releases are finally here!!!!!!

337852029/5 – The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding – by Alexandra Bracken

Her first foray into MG promises to be gothic and creepy! Prosper Redding is perfectly ordinary, apart from the demon living inside him thanks to an ancient relative’s dubious bargain for success. He has just days to banish Alastor the malefactor back to the demon realm or risk being trapped in an eternal contract of his own. Alastor just wants revenge on the family he helped that betrayed him, but he might have a few secrets he isn’t telling his host. I love bargains gone wrong so this sounds fun!

281179649/5 – Cinderella, Necromancer – by F.M. Boughan

A retelling that gives Cinderella aka Ellison a dark heart! Her father remarries a woman with two daughters that Ellison can’t seem to get along with, and things don’t improve when her younger brother falls ill and she becomes a servant in her own home. But one day while wandering her mansion she stumbles across guidebook to necromancy, and wonders if she can save her brother, attend a ball, and get everything she wants by unleashing evil spirits to torment her step-relatives. But the further she goes with her plan, the more she wonders if her stepmother is the true monster in their house. I’ve read a lot of fairy tale reboots, but I am intrigued!

327685099/5 – Girls Made of Snow and Glass – by Melissa Bashardoust

Another fairy tale retelling, this time Snow White. Mina has a heart of glass and plan to leave her ruthless father to become a queen and find love. She succeeds, and gains stepdaughter Lynet as well. Beautiful Lynet is made from snow to look just like her dead mother. She wants to be as powerful as her stepmother, but when her father makes her queen of southern territories, her stepmother’s affection vanishes. These two women are pitted to be rivals, and only one of them can be the strongest and fairest in the land. I love characters that want things desperately, this sounds totally up my alley!

299606759/5 – Mask of Shadows – by Linsey Miller

This debut features a gender-fluid thief fighting in a competition to the death to become one of the queen’s personal assassins. It sounds a bit familiar, but I’m hoping for some surprises along the way! Sal’s home was destroyed by the nobles, so the chance to infiltrate their ranks as an assassin and get revenge drives them to enter the competition. Throw in a love interest and the chance for a brighter future, and Sal has everything hinging on whether they survive.

331527959/19 – Invictus – by Ryan Graudin

Her alternate history duology was spell-binding and I can’t wait to see how she works with time-travel! Farway lives outside of time, with parents from 2354 and 95 AD. He just wants to travel for himself, but when he fails his test he gets a group of friends together for some historical heists. Yet a girl keeps popping up ahead of him and his determination to figure out who she is could lead to some frightening truths about the timeline and himself. I’m bracing for a fast-paced, addictive adventure!

329915699/19 – Jane, Unlimited – by Kristin Cashore

Everyone has been not-so-patiently waiting for her next book, and this one seems to defy categorization. Part contemporary, part fantastical, this story of an ordinary Jane facing extraordinary experiences at a remote mansion called Tu Reviens sounds quietly remarkable. Loosely based on Jane Eyre, this Jane explores several optional futures and what she wants for her life after the passing of her aunt and mentor. To be honest I’m not sure what to expect but I loved her other books!

299237079/19 – One Dark Throne – by Kendare Blake

Mirabella has given up the idea of befriending her sisters. Katharine wants revenge. Arsinoe has a secret that she thinks will give her the crown. Only one can win, and after a whole book of setting up the courts and the sisters we finally get to see what they will do!

340769529/26 – The Language of Thorns – by Leigh Bardugo

Fairy tales and short stories from the Grishaverse! Three old tales previously only available as ebooks plus three brand new ones! I would read anything she writes, honestly, but I do have a soft spot for fairy tales of any kind. They tell you so much about a culture and characters (or our own world). I can’t wait to see what dark and creepy ideas she has thought up for this collection!
