Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
I finished reading this book today, and I think my tweet says it all:
Be on the lookout for a review next week! 😁🖤
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
I’ve heard amazing things about this book, and the setting alone — Paris during La Belle Époque — is making me swoon. There are secret societies, treasure hunters, and tons of historical fantasy goodness. The concept of a group of misfits joining forces to achieve a common goal reminds me (in a good way) of Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows. And the cover is deliciously decadent. 😊
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
IT’S FINALLY HERE! I almost can’t believe that this book is finally in my hands — or at least on my Kindle, which is in my hands. 😜 I’m a huge fan of Shannon’s The Bone Season, and I’m excited to read her standalone epic fantasy, which is full of magic, mayhem, and dragons. Basically, it’s 800+ pages of my very favorite things.
The Bathhouse at Midnight: An Historical Survey of Magic and Divination in Russia by W.F. Ryan
As someone who has become fascinated with Russian folklore and history, I decided to indulge my academic curiosity and request this book through interlibrary loan. I think it’s a perfect follow-up to both my Grishaverse read-a-thon and Wicked Saints.
NOTE: You may have noticed that there’s no Jane Austen book on this list. After much consideration, I’ve decided to take a break from the #ArdentlyAustenBookClub readalong and focus on getting through some of my highly-anticipated reads.
