My usual disclaimer:
Let me state, this is really based on authors or series that I'm already reading since those are the things I follow. I'm not paid to write this blog nor do I have any affiliations with any publishers so I don't receive free books or advance notice of things except what I glean off Facebook from people who do have those contacts or what I research on my own (which again, leads back to authors that I'm already reading). Maybe someday I'll be one of those who has the contacts and gets ARCs but it's not today.
So I'm still massively behind in reading the new books that I keep buying. Life has gotten so much busier although I'm not altogether sure how but I think it's been spending a lot more time with friends and now with our new dog there is a LOT of time spent outside walking her which is definitely not helping me get more reading done. That doesn't mean that I'm not going to find time to start getting to some of these books that I post about. Thankfully there isn't a ton coming out this quarter so maybe I can start making a dent in the backlog.
Legend Has It by Elliot James is first up. The fifth book in the Pax Arcana series. I'm a book behind right now but this one definitely looks cool with the villain reading a magic book that is changing the world around him to match his fantasies. Hmmm...
Release date: April 18
Next up is Snared by Jennifer Estep, book 16 in the Elemental Assassin series. I've just started reading book 15 and it looks like the new long term plot line with the Circle will be continuing for a bit.
Release Date: April 25
Cold Reign by Faith Hunter kicks off the next month. Again, I'm a book behind in the series *sigh* but this next one looks to be seriously a** kickin'. Leo is under threat (again) but this time from revenants that should never have risen which means there is much more magical mojo going on than Jane has ever dealt with before.
Release date: May 2
The second book in the Hidden Legacy series, White Hot by Ilona Andrews, ended up being delayed a while so it's nice to see that not only is it coming out this year but the third will be coming out a few months after. This is definitely a paranormal romance series but the world is intriguing and they are definitely working to have a reason for the characters to have a relationship which is something I definitely appreciate.
Release date: May 30
Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire wraps up this quarter's new releases. A follow-up to Every Heart a Doorway, this is the backstory of the twin girls, Jack and Jill, who found that love isn't always enough and choices can be tricky things.
Release date: June 13
