Catching up!

Hi everyone!

 

It’s been a while (aside from a review here and there). I hope that you’re all doing well! Things are still super busy here, but I have missed being able to talk books with you all so much! I’m going to try to get back to posting at least semi-regularly for now.

So, let’s catch up on the latest!! There are a couple of things that are coming up in the next few weeks/months that I’m super excited about, and a couple that have been announced but, sadly, no dates yet (so that I can pine away looking at my planner).

Let’s dive in!!

First, the long-awaited prequel to The Hunger Games, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes releases on May 19!!I have been anxiously waiting for this day since Suzanne Collins announced that it was coming. As I said before, this is a prequel to The Hunger Games, so we’ll get to see what happened to make Panem the Panem that we came to know.

Next Up: Twilight news!! I never thought that I would be announcing that!! The book that we never thought was coming is coming out in August, y’all! If any of you are Twilight fans, you’ll remember the disappointment at the announcement that Midnight Sun would not be completed and released as the first chapters of it were leaked online. Many years later, we are being given the book from Edward’s perspective that we (yes we, I’m a fan, too- hate me!) have been wanting! It’s set to release on August 4.

Now, onto the fun news with no set dates:

AMC has acquired the rights to all 18 books in Queen Anne’s The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches and plan to develop a television series. Y’all, I freaked when this dropped yesterday!! It’s no secret that The Lives of the Mayfair Witches is one of my all-time favorite series. I mean, I have the Mayfair Emerald tattooed on my back! Anne and Christopher Rice will be executive producing the series, so hopefully AMC will do them justice. I can’t wait to see what becomes of this!

Finally, also announced recently (I only say it yesterday), Uncle Rick will be writing an Irish Mythology series…eventually! In a blog post, Rick Riordan let fans know that he is finishing up a Masters in Gaelic Literature at University College Cork in order to ensure that the details and the mythology in his books are accurate. So, fear not my demi-god brothers and sisters, there is plenty more RR to look forward to!

That’s all that I have for now! I’m glad to be back with you, at least part-time. What do you guys think about all of this news??!! Is there anything else coming up that you’re excited about? Let me know!!

Always,

Genre: Fantasy

Publisher: Indie

Pages: 577

 

Ses is back on her mission to keep the gods imprisoned, but the gods have learned a new trick: they can now inhabit humans from their prisons. Their latest human to inhabit? Ses’ own father. Ses has learned of an artifact that may be able to save her father and keep the gods in their prisons, but it could do the opposite if the wrong person were to have it and it’s already been stolen. Ses now faces a choice that could prove devastating. What will she choose? Will she be able to save her father and humankind from these murderous gods?

 

Y’all! Y’all!!! I’ve been waiting for this book since I finished reading Ungrateful God in 2017, and it’s finally here!! It was worth the long wait and definitely worth coming off of hiatus to tell you about! The world building and character development just keeps getting better in this series. This world is so imaginative and beautiful. The writing is absolutely immersive. I was so drawn into this book that I lost track of time. I believe that this is the best book of this series, so far. I was excited to find out that there is going to be one more book in this series, and I cannot wait to see how this series is going to wrap up! If you haven’t read this series, and you are a fantasy fan, definitely give this a look!

Reclaiming Honor (The Way of Legend, Book 1) Preview!!

Hey Everyone!!

I’ve got a preview for you that I am sooo stoked about!!! You guys know that I love, well, anything that Quincy J. Allen puts out. Y’all, he’s teamed up with Marc Edelheit (author of Stigers Tigers and the Karus Saga) and this collab looks amazing!!

The dwarven nations are facing extermination. Their ancient enemy has returned. The Horde is coming and, along with it, a dark tide is spreading across the world of Tanis. One by one, the free peoples of the world have fallen under a shadow, crushed by the merciless boot of the Horde.

The Syrulian Empire, the last buffer state between three dwarven nations and the advancing armies of the Horde, has fallen. Vastly outnumbered, the dwarves must undertake the Great March, uprooting their entire civilization in search of a new homeland. They hope to find a safe harbor beyond the reach of the enemy, for the nations are not strong enough to withstand the might of the Horde.

Every sword is needed.

Does that not sound phenomenal? I can’t wait to read this! I’ll let you know my thoughts as soon as I do!!

It releases 10/28 in all formats.

The August Plan…

Happy Monday, everyone!!

I can’t believe that August is already here!

This year feels like it has flown by, and we are getting close to my favorite time of the year: Fall!! Unfortunately, for me, this year the Fall season is bringing me back to school. I’ve decided to pursue another degree, and I start back in September. That means that I am trying to get in as much fun reading as I can this month!

I am going to try to get through as many of these as possible before the Fall quarter starts:

I am currently reading Three Women by Lisa Taddeo, which I am enjoying. I’m also making my way through Preacher for the first time, and wondering why I’ve waited so long to read it!

What are your reading plans for August? Do you have any big upcoming plans for fall?

What should I read next?!

Let me know your thoughts!!

Have a great week!

Always,

T
