Happy Sunday and happy 1st of April everyone! Spring is here for good and I couldn’t be happier about it especially since I won’t have to work as much this month because of Easter holidays which means I’ll have more time to write, read and procrastinate! I have no joke for you today but I do have a small blog post and it’s all about my most anticipated YA releases of this month! I sadly forgot to do a blog post for my most anticipated March releases (which is a shame because so many amazing books came out last month) but I was determined not to forget this time! So here are the four books that I’m most excited about this month!
Ace of Shades
Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.
Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.
Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.
Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…
And she’ll need to play.
Expected publication: April 10th
A book that is promising dark mysteries, secrets hiding in the shadows and morally grey characters? Yes please! This one keeps being compared to Six of Crows and as you all know I absolutely loved Six of Crows so of course I have to give it a shot! I only hope I won’t be disappointed because let’s face it: Leigh Bardugo has set the bar really high with complicated young criminals and impossible heists so I’m not very confident I will find Levi as incredible as I found Kaz and the rest of the Dregs. Still really excited about this though and I can’t wait to read it and find out if it’s going to prove me wrong!
