What’s new this month

July is far from dead on my reading schedule! Check these out:

335403477/11 – Monstress Vol. 2 – by Marjorie Liu & Sana Takeda

One of my most-anticipated releases!!! The first volume was my top read last year and I can’t wait to sink back into this dark and lovely story. Maika’s past remains mysterious, the monster inside her grows more threatening, and even more darkness resides in her world. The artwork is gorgeous, it’s full of female protagonists and antagonists, and the depth of world-building demands that you keep pace or fall behind. It’s fabulous in every way!

314507527/11 – Because You Love to Hate Me – edited by Ameriie

Thirteen short stories about villains from thirteen amazing authors! Actually, the authors each teamed up with a booktuber to tell different classic stories from the villain’s point of view. Villains are so much fun when they are done well, and I can’t wait to see another side of some of my favorite stories! Most of these authors have crafted antagonists in their own series that have made me cringe with their ruthless behavior, so I know this collection cannot disappoint.

7/11 – The Savage Dawn – by Melissa Grey28872472

This has been a fun trilogy and I’m excited to see how it ends! Grey has developed a large cast filled with everything I love: secrets, banter, romance, darkness. Echo has changed so much since the first book and I’m sure she’ll have some tricks up her sleeve when she faces off against Tanith. Nothing good can come of Tanith and Caius’ twisted relationship and how the siblings end is almost more interesting to me than any of the romantic pairings. I have a few guesses about how this will end but we’ll see!

302370617/25 – Daughter of the Burning City – by Amanda Foody

Shameless promotion time!!! Amanda happens to be part of my writing group and I had the chance to read this dark, weird story a few months ago! (Spoiler: it’s brilliant). If you have wanted to be swept away to a festival since January’s Caraval, be sure to attend Gomorrah! Sorina is a rare illusion-worker who runs the carnival’s Freak Show. Her illusions seem solid and alive, but they aren’t real. At least, she thought that until one of them is murdered. She has to find the killer before her entire family is destroyed. It’s not often I encounter an imagination so radically different from my own—this is one of those times. Be prepared for shivers!
