Hello Fellow Readers,
How is your reading life going? My reading life is on hold for a bit for health reasons but I plan to catch up with my readings this weekend. More importantly, are you planning to buy more books to put in your TBR pile for Black Friday??
It’s that time of the month to check which sequels are coming out and to review my TBR. I hope this post will help with your list of books to buy.
EVERYTHING IS AS IT SHOULD BE IN CAMELOT: King Arthur is expanding his kingdom’s influence with Queen Guinevere at his side. Yet every night, dreams of darkness and unknowable power plague her.
Guinevere might have accepted her role, but she still cannot find a place for herself in all of it. The closer she gets to Brangien, pining for her lost love Isolde, Lancelot, fighting to prove her worth as Queen’s knight, and Arthur, everything to everyone and thus never quite enough for Guinevere–the more she realizes how empty she is. She has no sense of who she truly was before she was Guinevere. The more she tries to claim herself as queen, the more she wonders if Mordred was right: she doesn’t belong. She never will.
When a rescue goes awry and results in the death of something precious, a devastated Guinevere returns to Camelot to find the greatest threat yet has arrived. Not in the form of the Dark Queen or an invading army, but in the form of the real Guinevere’s younger sister. Is her deception at an end? And who is she really deceiving–Camelot, or herself?
I really enjoyed the first book of this series, as it offers an interesting retake of King Arthur‘s story from a female perspective. It also had intriguing and unexpected developments at the end, like Lancelot as a woman, so I can’t wait to read the sequel. But, who knows when my copy will be delivered. Anyway, if you are looking to read a story about exploring your own personal nature, the downsides of progress, this retelling of King Arthur is a must read. The Camelot Betrayal is out on 10 November.
After a treacherous journey and a life-shattering meeting with a twin neither knew they had, Haidee and Odessa expected to emerge from the Great Abyss to a world set right. But though the planet is turning once again, the creatures of the abyss will not rest until they have tasted another goddess’s sacrifice.
To break the cycle, Haidee and Odessa need answers that lie beyond the seven gates of the underworld, within the Cruel Kingdom itself. The shadows of the underworld may hunger to tear them apart, but these two sisters are determined to heal their world—together.
I feel so guilty for never having read a book by Rin Chupeco, and her first book of this duology – The Never Tilting World – is on my Wishlist. This story has been described as Frozen meets Mad Max, an epic fantasy duology bursting with star-crossed romance, immortal heroines, and elemental magic. If you liked Furyborn, this book should be up your alley. and it is officially out on 10 November.
And to conclude, not really a sequel but it’s worth mentioning this title everybody is dying to get:
Once upon a time, there was a boy with a wicked tongue.
Before he was a cruel prince or a wicked king, he was a faerie child with a heart of stone . #1 New York Times bestselling author, Holly Black reveals a deeper look into the dramatic life of Elfhame’s enigmatic high king, Cardan. This tale includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan’s perspective.
This new installment in the Folk of the Air series is a return to the heart-racing romance, danger, humor, and drama that enchanted readers everywhere. Each chapter is paired with lavish and luminous full-color art, making this the perfect collector’s item to be enjoyed by both new audiences and old.
Well, I guess the synopsis is sufficient to understand what we are getting with this novella. Truth to be told, I was excited to hear about this title because Cardan is just freaking awesome, one of those characters that will haunt you forever, so I am pretty excited to read more about him. The novella from The Folk of The Air trilogy comes out on 20 November.
Which sequel are you looking forward to reading this month? Anything outside this list?
