3012293810/3 – Among the Red Stars – by Gwen C. Katz

A novel about a female pilot during World War Two, inspired by the true story of the Night Witches—a thousand times yes! Valka knows she can fly as well as any man, so when an all-female aviation group forms she signs up to defend Russia. Valka must deal with her love of flying being transformed into violence, and the fatigue of war that wars on her and the boy she’s known all of her life who is fighting on the front lines. This sounds sad but inspiring.

10/3 – Wild Beauty – by Anna-Marie McLemore33158561

The Nomeolvides women tend the most beautiful garden in the world, La Pradera, but their dark secret is that if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers disappear. But when Estrella finds a strange boy in the garden with no memory, she decides to help Fel remember his past. Wandering La Pradera leads to threatening secrets and knowledge…that I assume could threaten everything? It’s mysterious! I am so ready for this, I adored her previous book and I’m confident this will be another lush, emotional read.

3395823010/10 – Forest of a Thousand Lanterns – by Julie C. Dao

An East Asian retelling of the Evil Queen—well I love evil characters so let’s see how evil she can be! Xifeng is beautiful and destined to be Empress, but it comes at the cost of embracing the darkness within and rejecting the man who loves her. Her magic comes from eating the hearts of the recently killed, and a god has placed her on this path. I cannot say enough how amazing this sounds!!! Evil queen, dark magic, destiny, a haunting world, all my sweet spots for a fantasy book! Picking this up on release day! It’s a duology, so I’m dying to know whether Xifeng decides to redeem herself or if she goes all-in on her path to power.

10/10 – Gray Wolf Island – by Tracey Neithercott29906023

Her sister Sadie’s dying wish was for Ruby to find the treasure hidden on Gray Wolf Island. But Ruby and her three friends—all with strange powers—must give up their most precious secrets if they want a chance at finding it. I love stories about tight-knit friend groups and of course weird powers always get my attention. A girl who never sleeps? A boy who knows his own death? I am so intrigued! This could be one of those books that stays in my mind for ages.

I have been waiting for her next book since I devoured Hour of the Bees! A girl with a passion for inventing wants to uncover pirate treasure! Fidelia blames herself for her parents deaths in a submarine of her invention. But when the pirate Merrick the Monstrous kidnaps her, she is dragged from her grief into a quest for his buried treasure. Stranger still, Merrick clearly expects not to live long enough to enjoy his loot. Fidelia has a lot to figure out and not much time to do it. I am confident this will be amazing!

Taj is the best sin-eater in Kos, and takes pride in providing for his family. But when a royal sin reveals a plan to destroy the city, he must fight to save the princess he loves, and himself. Everything about this book makes me want it immediately!
