It was actually kind of hard to choose which 3 books to feature in this post. Some really amazing sounding and eye-catching books have…caught my eye recently. I’m obviously going to do another post featuring other books, but these three books sound really amazing.
There already in my cart, just waiting for me to click “buy” – I’m waiting until I get paid on Friday. Then all bets are off. Between stunning covers and just really great sounding premises – I really cannot wait to read these books. I don’t want to wait, so if someone wants to hook me up…just kidding…though, also not really.
I highly recommend you putting them on your TBR, making sure they stay on your radar. For the covers alone, they deserve shelf space.
She Who Rides the Storm – Caitlin Sangster – the cover immediately drew me in, and then the excitement kept building as I read the synopsis. September can’t come soon enough.
Song of the Forever Rains (The Mousai #1) – E.J. Mellow – I mean, just look at this cover and tell me you’re not intrigued. Thank goodness it comes out next month – the wait is almost over!
The Goddess of Nothing At All (Unwritten Runes #1) – Cat Rector – my chill is utterly non-existent when I think of this book. October is too far away; I desperately want to read this right now.
If these are only a small sample of books coming out the second half of the year, I’m going to be broke. But you know what, I’m not even concerned. Bring it on. I have no self-control when it comes to books with stunning covers. But seriously, add these to your TBR – I really don’t think they’re going to disappoint.
She Who Rides the Storm – Caitlin Sangster
Long ago, shapeshifting monsters ruled the Commonwealth using blasphemous magic that fed on the souls of their subjects. Now, hundreds of years later, a new tomb has been uncovered, and despite the legends that disturbing a shapeshifter’s final resting place will wake them once again, the Warlord is determined to dig it up.
But it isn’t just the Warlord who means to brave the traps and pitfalls guarding the crypt.
A healer obsessed with tracking down the man who murdered her twin brother.
A runaway member of the Warlord’s Devoted order, haunted by his sister’s ghost.
A snotty archaeologist bent on finding the cure to his magical wasting disease.
A girl desperate to escape the cloistered life she didn’t choose.
All four are out to steal the same cursed sword rumored to be at the very bottom of the tomb. But of course, some treasures should never see the light of day, and some secrets are best left buried…
Song of the Forever Rains (The Mousai #1) – E.J. Mellow
The Thief Kingdom is a place hidden within the world of Aadilor. Many whisper of its existence, but few have found this place, where magic and pleasure abound. There, the mysterious Thief King reigns supreme with the help of the Mousai, a trio of revered and feared sorceresses.
Larkyra Bassette may be the youngest of the Mousai, but when she sings her voice has the power to slay monsters. When it’s discovered the Duke of Lachlan is siphoning a poisonous drug from the Thief Kingdom and using it to abuse his tenants, Larkyra is offered her first solo mission to stop the duke. Eager to prove herself, Larkyra accepts by posing as the duke’s potential bride. But her plans grow complicated when she finds herself drawn to Lord Darius Mekenna, Lachlan’s rightful heir. Soon she suspects Darius has his own motivations for ridding Lachlan of the corrupt duke. Larkyra and Darius must learn to trust each other if there is to be any hope of saving the people of Lachlan—and themselves.
Welcome to the world of Aadilor, where lords and ladies can be murderers and thieves, and the most alluring notes are often the deadliest. Dare to listen?
The Goddess of Nothing At All (Unwritten Runes #1) – Cat Rector
Perhaps you know the myths. Furious, benevolent Gods. A tree that binds nine realms. A hammer stronger than any weapon. And someday, the end of everything. But few have heard of me.
Looking back, it’s easy to know what choices I might have made differently. At least it feels that way. I might have given up on my title. Told my father he was useless, king of Gods or no, and left Asgard. Made a life somewhere else. Maybe I would never have let Loki cross my path. Never have fallen in love. But there’s no going back. We were happy once. And the price for that happiness was the end of everything.
