At this time in my reading journey I tend to avoid books that involve kings & queens (or similar themes) as I’ve become quite bored of reading the same story, but with slightly different characters & not-so-different world-building… I broke that rule for The Smoke Thieves though; & that’s because I adore Sally Green. Sally did not let me down. The Smoke Thieves was funny, exciting & original (at least for me) & I’m eager to get my hands on the next book.
This book contains violence, ableist slurs, a homophobic character & bloodshed throughout.
Today’s post shows some of the books I’m looking forward to being released this year! Some of these books are books that I have already been accepted for on NetGalley, others are ARCs I’ve emailed publishers about, & some are books that I can’t wait to be able to buy. I’ve included the GoodReads links for every book (minis one), but unfortunately not every book I’ve listed has a cover released yet, so after July there aren’t any more pretty covers to fall in love with!
Throwback Thursday involves me picking a book or book series I’ve previously read to talk about, today I’m going to discuss The Half Bad trilogy by Sally Green!
The Half Bad Trilogy follows the story of Nathan, a boy whose mother was a good witch & whose father is the most evil witch in the world. The series takes us through Nathan’s fight against a world that sees him as an abomination, & his journey of meeting his father & finding out the truth about the relationship his parents once had. We also get thrown headfirst into a very deeply rooted fight between good & evil, something that is both a lot bigger than Nathan, but also totally revolved around him & his existence. This series is full of action, strength & emotion, & I loved it.
