July 2017 Releases to Read

So, I’m convinced that we somehow skipped right over July.  I know I did things during that month, but I don’t understand how it went by so fast.  Same thing seems to be happening with August though as I just realized that I hadn’t done my July post yet and September happens in just under 2 weeks!  Anyway, here are some awesome releases from July that I haven’t had time to read yet!

Geez that’s a lot of books!!  I guess that July must have happened or all these lovelies wouldn’t be available to read, enjoy and share.  🙂

Have you read any of these?  Did I miss something that you loved?  Let me know!

March 2017 Releases to Read

It’s already time to look back on March to see what books came out that I just didn’t have time to read!  Surprisingly, I was able to read more March books than January and February books.  But maybe that’s just because there were so many more releases.  Who knows?  Anyway, here’s the releases I want to read but will have to wait a bit.

February 2017 Releases to Read

This list is a tad bit late as it’s almost time to make my March releases list, but I wanted to make sure I shared several titles that I’m truly excited about, but they just didn’t fit into my reading schedule yet.

Yeah, February was a big month for sequels and new series starts.  It may be awhile before I can get back to even a third of these, but I will get them read eventually as they all sound amazing!

Waiting on Wednesday: RoseBlood by A. G. Howard

RoseBlood

Hardcover, 432 pages
Expected publication: January 10th 2017 by Amulet Books
Even though I still haven’t read Splintered, I’m excited that A.G. Howard has decided to tackle another retelling.  This time, though, it’s The Phantom of the Opera.  Having read the original work when I was younger (boy, was it dark and kind of gruesome) and enjoying the film version, I was excited to hear that someone was writing a retelling.
It’s not in the usual vein of stories chosen for re-writes, and that’s awesome because I can only read so many Cinderella and Snow White stories before I say enough.  2017 appears to have a nice change in the retellings trend with RoseBlood and Wintersong (think Labyrinth) as two of the ones I’m most excited for!

Summary:

In this modern day spin on Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. Hoping creative direction will help her, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera.

At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn—an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself, but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks. As the two discover an otherworldly connection and a soul-deep romance blossoms, Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light and he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known.

Waiting on Wednesday: Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Windwitch (The Witchlands #2)

Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: January 2017 by Tor Teen
Although I received an arc for this title, I haven’t read Truthwitch yet!!  As soon as I finish Strange the DreamerTruthwitch is next; however, I’m not sure that all of that will happen before Windwitch is released.  So, I thought I’d remind you that the release is coming in a few short weeks.  And don’t forget the pre-order bounty as Dennard is calling it on her website 🙂  Follow the link above!
