  1. There are so many amazing books being released this month! Hopefully you’ll end up loving all the books you’ve featured here Ashley. I can’t wait to get my hands on Defy the Fates, I’ve loved both the first and the second in the trilogy and after the way the second book ended I need to know what happens next. Also King of Fools is high on my TBR list (I was actually lucky enough to get an eARC copy which I can’t wait to pick up).
    Loads of people seem really excited for The Red Scrolls of Magic, and I can see why, hopefully it will live up to the hype.
    Great post, and happy reading. 🙂 ❤

    1. So many good books! How does one keep up with them all!! I’ve been wanting to read Ace of Shades for a while. With the sequel out this month, I should probably kick myself and finally do it. Awesome that you got an ARC!
      I hope Defy the Fates lives up to your expectations. I’ve heard good things about that series and the synopsis for the new book sounds really exciting.
      Any new Cassie Clare book and people go nuts, pretty much. I’m still massively behind but eh, I’ll get there eventually. Weird that this one is actually an adult book for a change. It’ll be interesting to see what people think of it.
      Happy reading to you too! 🙂
