It feels like it’s been a long time since I shared some of the releases I am looking forward to. This week, I’m sitting down with my coffee to highlight some February releases that I am really excited for.
I am currently drinking Finca Tamana, a Columbian coffee from Workshop roasters, which is tasting pretty awesome.
Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard
I am a huge fan of Sara’s work, and have been since the night I stayed up until the early hours reading A Quiet Kind of Thunder. In this latest book Sara explores friendship and the pressures it is put under when one friend asks the other to keep a dangerous secret. Surely this one is high up on everyone’s wish list?
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
I have read so many excellent things about this one and I am really looking forward to it. The Belles sounds like a dystopian novel in a similar style to The Selection series, which I quite enjoyed. It is a world where beauty is important, where royalty is not what it seems and Camellia discovers that her powers as a Belle could cost her life and change her world forever. Yes. Please. Is it February yet?
The Last to Let Go by Amber Smith
The Last to Let Go is a family story about what happens when Brooke’s mother is arrested for killing her abusive father. Needless to say it changes Brooke’s plans for the year, and she is forced to face up to the violence and dysfunction of her family whilst finding her place in the world. I am looking forward to seeing how Brooke comes through this.
Ink Iron and Glass by Gwendolyn Clare
Gwendolyn has created a world where people can craft new worlds through the science of scriptology. Elsa lives in one of these worlds but has to cross to the real world when her home is attacked. There is also an assassin, a political conspiracy and a dangerous weapon. I am sold. We all know I’m a sucker for stories with assassins.
Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman
Dragons. There are Dragons. What more do you need to know? In a world where the women are supposed to be well-bhaved ladies, Tess is a troublemaker. When her family threaten to send her to the nuns she sets off on her own adventure pretending to be a boy. Also, Dragons.
Those are my top picks for February. What are you looking forward to? Do you like these posts about the books I’m looking forward to or is there something else you’d like to see on my blog? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @charlotteswhere.
