I ams so relived that May is here, along with some of my most anticipated books!
A Court of Frost and Starlight (ACOTAR #4) by Sarah J. Maas
Is it any surprise to see SJM on this list? I am a SJM fangirl to the death, after all. And for fear of spilling anyone who hasn’t read ACOWAR yet (I know you’re out there, and you need to get on it!) I can’t tell you a thing about the plot of this book. Nothing. I am very paranoid about spoilers, because I know how gutting it is to accidentally see them, so all I’ll say is that it’s a novella. No, not a Tower of Dawn novella, but an actual novella about 200-250 pages… I might actually be able to finish this in one day, two at the very most!
The Prince of Mirrors by Alan Robert Clark
This historical fiction novel is release next month, June 7th, but I was lucky enough to receive a copy from the publishers via NetGalley. Hopefully I will have a full review for you guys later this month, but definitely before or around the release date. The Prince of Mirrors follows Prince Albert Victor , grandson on Queen Victoria, who is deemed an inadequate heir presumptive to the throne despite his best intentions. We also follow his relationship with Jem Stephen, his Cambridge tutor, who is universally adored. I’m defiantly looking forward to reading some historical fiction, for the first time in an absolute age!
Do Android’s Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick
I picked this up right after I bought it, but as it wasn’t technically on my TBR I keep reading a chapter or two and then putting it back down. This will be the month I finish it. Like ACOFAS this is also quite short, around 200 or so pages, and, in case you weren’t aware, the inspiration around for the Blade Runner film, and the world of Blade Runner 2049. We follow Deckard a bounty hunter whose job it is to “retire” replicants, or androids, only it turns out that these are a little harder to find than one might first think. I’ve seen the newer film but not the original, so the plan is to read then then watch the original Blade Runner.
Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas
Surprise! One SJM readathon finishes only for another to begin. With the realise of the final book in October, it is, of course, time to remind ourselves of all the excitement of the past 6 books. If, for whatever reason you’ve been sleeping on this series, now is your chance to catch up. As usual, I’ll be reading one book a month leading up to the release date, so feel free to join me if you fancy it. I may even review each and every one as I go, some of these books I already have reviews for, so I’ll try to fill in the gaps. This series has everything from assassins, to princes and pirates, magic, fae and everything in between, just don’t except it all in this first book.
I’ll also be reading… 4321(hopefully!), A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2), and April’s FairyLoot book whatever it is.
I’d like to give a shoutout to War Storm (Red Queen #4) which is released this month, but I have tickets for an event with Victoria Aveyard, which includes the book, so I won’t be reading it for another month.
Thanks for reading!
