Most Anticipated Releases | April 2019

Some month I struggle to find new books to add to this post. While other months, there are so many of them that it becomes difficult to narrow the list down. This was the case for April. This post could go on and on forever!

I can’t even imagine what May will be like. Most of my current ARCs will be published in May and I haven’t even checked other new releases yet. But one step at a time!
Let’s see what April brings us!

School for Psychics (School for Psychics #1) by K.C. Archer | A “magic” school for adults

When someone asked me what I was currently reading, the best (and quickest) way to describe the book was – a “Harry Potter” for adults.

Not to say that it is extremely similar to the Harry Potter story, but every book that gives us some sort of magic / supernatural school, be it for children or for adults, will forever remind me of Harry Potter and how much I wished I would have gotten that Hogwarts letter.

Storm Glass by Jeff Wheeler | Magical Dickensian World!

It’s the greatest joy of my life when after reading the first book of the new-to-me author, I discover that he has written many other books and Fantasy series!

Jeff Wheeler’s writing will have anyone hooked after a few sentences, and the Dickensian world of his latest Sci-Fi / Fantasy series Harbinger, instantly made it to one of my favorite story settings of 2018.

Most Anticipated Releases | March 2019

There are some months that are filled with the new and most excited releases (it seems as though Publishers much prefer January / May and September over the other months!) and then there are months when I browse the New Releases page on GoodReads / BookDepository and other websites for many many hours, and still cannot find anything that excites me.

In March, there were only 7 books that looked somewhat promising.

The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons | The First Disappointment of 2019

Usually, when a new release is compared to Brandon Sanderson, John Gwynne, and Patrick Rothfuss, you’d expect it to be good, right? Or at least decent.

I was promised this: Uniting the worldbuilding of a Brandon Sanderson with the storytelling verve of a Patrick Rothfuss, debut author Jenn Lyons delivers an entirely new and captivating fantasy epic. Prepare to meet the genre’s next star.

Instead, I got the worst book I’ve read in a long time. I have 10 pages of highlights from 60% of the book and most of them are BAD!, so let’s get started!

Whisper by Lynette Noni | A new favorite young adult Sci-fi!

There is something about Young Adult Sci-fi / Dystopian series like Divergent, the Hunger Games, the 5th Wave, that appeal to me more than anything else.

Whisper by Lynette Noni was an unexpected page-turner that kept me awake at nights. What can you not like in a book full of political manipulations, secret governmental facilities, special abilities, and hidden experiments?!
