Upcoming Releases: March 2017

upcoming releases march 2017
Fiew, March has been busy. Not with reading unfortunately and not with blogging either. I should probably cut the 'upcoming' from the title as most novels in this post have already been released. That aside, March is proving to be another good month. Lots of books to be excited about. Mainly Laini Taylor's long anticipated Strange The Dreamer. I'm incredibly excited to find out what that's all about. I'm also really looking forward to reading The Inexplicable Logic Of My Life by Benjamin Alire SaĆ©nz. Which of these books made it onto your tbr?

February Wrap Up

wrap up february 2017
March already. If the date hadn't been staring me in the face, I would have never believed it. But here it is and it has been pretty great so far.  I spent the last couple of days with my nose stuck between the pages of A Conjuring Of Light! FI-NA-LLY. *fangirl scream* All I want to do is keep on reading, but I'm savouring it, enjoying every page. I have no idea what I'll do with my life once this is over, so I'm postponing that moment as long as possible. And yes, it literally pains me to put the book away every time I reach a new part. Totally worth it. I'm not ready to say goodbye.

Title: A Gathering Of Shadows 
Author: V.E. Schwab 
Series: Shades Of Magic #2 
Genre: Fantasy, YA 
Publication date: February 23, 2016 
Rating: ★★★★★ 

It has been four months since a mysterious obsidian stone fell into Kell's possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Prince Rhy was wounded, and since the nefarious Dane twins of White London fell, and four months since the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift--back into Black London. Now, restless after having given up his smuggling habit, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks as she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games--an extravagant international competition of magic meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries--a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port. And while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night will reappear in the morning. But the balance of magic is ever perilous, and for one city to flourish, another London must fall.
