For your viewing pleasure, a few of the books that I’m most looking forward to reading this spring! This post will cover new releases over the course of March, April and May 2015.
[NB: All dates are taken from Amazon UK unless stated otherwise, and are correct as of 12/02/2015.]
Half Wild by Sally Green (26th March)
The sequel to Half Bad, which I read last year and loved. It will, I imagine, follow Nathan as he learns to use his new Gift and (I hope) rescues his friend Gabriel. Things I want to find out in this book: 1) What Annalise’s game is, 2) What happened to Gabriel, and 3) If there will be a Nathan/Gabriel romance. I’m can’t be the only one shipping Nathan and Gabriel… right?
The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey (28th April)
This is Melissa Grey’s debut novel, and is being pitched as a book for those who liked Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series and Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy (both of which I have enjoyed/am enjoying). I don’t know all that much about it, but I am excited nonetheless – as far as I can tell, it follows a thief called Echo, who sells stolen artefacts on the black market in a fantasy world that’s hidden away from humans.
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge (5th May)
Another fairytale-retelling, along the lines of Cruel Beauty, though I don’t believe that they’re set in the same universe. Crimson Bound is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, and follows a girl named Rachelle, who fights monsters in service to the King, and her romance (presumably) with his son Armand.
