Let me start this by saying, that there is a reason I’m a writer and not a mathematician. Clearly my brain wasn’t working properly when I did my first Quarterly post, since I included April in it.
4 x 3 = 12
That was my logic. Therefore, for each post, I should have four months which will ultimately by the end of the year equal twelve months covered. Now, it wasn’t that, that logic was wrong, it just wasn’t right.
I needed to look at it this way:
3 x 4 = 12
Three months, four times a year, would give me twelve months covered. Otherwise I would need to change the heading of these posts to reflect my poor math skills. Again, math is not a strength. I know what logic I was thinking of when I posted the first one, I just was wrong.
So, in order to get back on track, and seeing as how I’ve already done my Quarterly Anticipated Releases for April – you can check them out here – This post is only going to focus on May and June, and come July, I’ll be officially back on track.
I also want to mention that, yes, this post should have been up this week, but since my math was all off, I don’t mind uploading it later, since it will only cover May and June!
Chosen Champion – Elise Kova
Pub. Date: May 1, 2019
I’m currently reading this now! Elise was kind enough to send me an advanced copy, which that act itself is still blowing my mind. So far, I’m really enjoying it and cannot wait to see what happens! I did the cover reveal for this book, you can check out that post here!
A princess on the run, with enemies on all sides…
Vi Solaris is on the eve of getting everything she’s ever wanted—her family, her home, her throne—and to save the world she’s going to have to give it all up.
The Empire sees her as their Crown Princess, returning at long last. But Vi only sees visions of fate guiding her to the world’s gruesome end. Across the sea is a man who holds the keys to deciphering her premonitions and thwarting the ancient evil ravaging their world. But to get to him, Vi will have to contend with enemies of the crown, romance she didn’t expect, sorcerer pirates, and a betrayal she never saw coming.
She will learn the hard way that some evils never die… They only bide their time…
Again, but Better – Christine Riccio
Pub. Date: May 7, 2019
I’m currently reading this now, NetGalley was nice enough to send me an eARC. So far I’m enjoying it.
Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal—but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?
Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change—there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!
Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.
Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic—the possibilities are endless.
Dark Shores – Danielle L. Jensen
Pub. Date: May 7, 2019
I’m looking forward to this, I always want more Pirate books!
In a world divided by meddlesome gods and treacherous oceans, only the Maarin possess the knowledge to cross the Endless Seas. But they have one mandate: East must never meet West.
A PIRATE WITH A WILL OF IRON
Teriana is the second mate of the Quincense and heir to the Maarin Triumvirate. Her people are born of the seas and the keepers of its secrets, but when her closest friend is forced into an unwanted betrothal, Teriana breaks her people’s mandate so her friend might escape—a choice with devastating consequences.
A SOLDIER WITH A SECRET
Marcus is the commander of the Thirty-Seventh, the notorious legion that has led the Celendor Empire to conquer the entire East. The legion is his family, but even they don’t know the truth he’s been hiding since childhood. It’s a secret he’ll do anything to protect, no matter how much it costs him – and the world.
A DANGEROUS QUEST
When an Empire senator discovers the existence of the Dark Shores, he captures Teriana’s crew and threatens to reveal Marcus’s secret unless they sail in pursuit of conquest, forcing the two into an unlikely—and unwilling—alliance. They unite for the sake of their families, but both must decide how far they are willing to go, and how much they are willing to sacrifice.
Romanov – Nadine Brandes

Yes! Give me Anastasia reimagining’s! I’m super excited for this!
The history books say I died.
They don’t know the half of it.
Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov was given a single mission: to smuggle an ancient spell into her suitcase on her way to exile in Siberia. It might be her family’s only salvation. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them . . . and he’s hunted Romanov before.
Nastya’s only chances of survival are to either release the spell, and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya’s never dabbled in magic before, but it doesn’t frighten her as much as her growing attraction for Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her . . .
That is, until she’s on one side of a firing squad . . . and he’s on the other.
The Evil Queen – Gena Showalter
Pub. Date: June 25, 2019
This sounds so good! I can’t wait to read it!
Welcome to the Forest of Good and Evil. A dream come true, and a living nightmare.
Evil isn’t born, it’s made. One thought and action at a time. Take a good look at what you’ve made.
Far, far away, in the realm of Enchantia, creatures of legend still exist, magic is the norm and fairy tales are real. Except, fairy tales aren’t based on myths and legends of the past—they are prophecies of the future.
Raised in the mortal realm, Everly Morrow has no idea she’s a real life fairy tale princess—until she manifests an ability to commune with mirrors.
Look. See… What will one peek hurt?
Soon, a horrifying truth is revealed. She is fated to be Snow White’s greatest enemy, the Evil Queen.
With powers beyond her imagination or control—and determined to change Fate itself—Everly returns to the land of her birth. There, she meets Roth Charmaine, the supposed Prince Charming. Their attraction is undeniable, but their relationship is doomed.
As bits and pieces of the prophecy unfold, Everly faces one betrayal after another, and giving in to her dark side proves more tempting every day. Can she resist, or will she become the queen—and villain—she was born to be?
