It's april already which means ONLY ONE MORE MONTH UNTIL MAY AND ACOTAR2! But until then we have some really great releases to enjoy! THE RAVEN KING should be out in twenty days.  MYGODFINALLY. The release has been pushed so many times that I will only believe it's out when I can actually hold it in my hands. But there's also The Rose and The Dagger because the release has been set earlier. I still need to read the first one, but I'm already excited about the sequel. Basically my life. I've heard really great things about When We Collided as well. So basically lots of AWESOME stuff coming up. Which ones are you excited about?

Big and sweeping, spanning from the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court. Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies who appear destined for powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training, and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court. When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and then when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor. But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands…
