You know the year is almost over when the number of new releases keeps dwindling. This week The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen should be a highly anticipated book for you if you love The Queen of the Tearling series. Other than that, I challenge you to pick up the oldest book you own but haven’t read. Which book is that for you? Let me know in the comments below!
It’s amazing how much perspectives can shift upon a re-read. When I first picked up The Raven Boys nearly two years ago, I listened to the audiobook. I loved Will Patton’s narration but had a few reservations about the book itself. Recently, I sat down with the hardcover edition, post-its and pencil in hand, determined to annotate as I revisited The Raven Boys. There were so many things I newly discovered, I grew to love it a whole lot more.
This week is a little unusual. There were no paperback or re-releases that I could find. That leaves us with ten newly published books. Among those Scythe caught my attention for its intriguing premise. With no more disease left in their world, the only way to die is at the hands of a scythe. Even though I expect it to be fascinating, I’ve not decided yet if I’ll read it. I’ll probably look through more reviews to ascertain the levels of gore first.
