Because who cares about Christmas when we have info on books from 2020?
Epic Reads looks at covers for books coming in the summer. The list includes The Fascinators by Andrew Eliopoulos, pitched as a combo of The Raven Boys and Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens agenda, which should get the book some attention. Another book catching my eye is Rebecca Ross’ fantasy Sisters of Sword and Song. The Stepping Off Place might also be worth a look
Riveted Li is also looking at summer releases, including thriller I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick, apparently based on the classic book Rebecca. Penguin Teen’s Summer Cover reveal includes the sequel to These Witches Don’t Burn, a book that caught my eye, though mixed reviews have so far stopped me from picking it up.
Penguin Teen also looks at the Stranger Things-esque Skywatchers following a group of teens who must find their missing friend… in the 50’s. Missing teens also feature in witch book A Wicked Magic. It’s the long ago disappearance mother that helps drive the plot in the thriller Harrow Lake.
Sadly we still have to get through winter before these books will appear on the shelves, but Penguin Teen also looks at the books that will help us get through the cold months. Amongst the books that catch my eye is The Last Confession of Autumn Casterly, which sees a protagonist searching for her missing sister. We have cybernetic dragons in Rebelwing, an upcoming dystopian, while June will see the release of The Kinder Poison, a fantasy about a heroine picked to be a human sacrifice.
Infinity Son by Adam Silvera is one of the more anticipated books of next year, but this review from Maxxesbooktopia is rather negative. The worldbuilding, characterization and pacing all get criticized, though the protagonist does get some praise. I actually haven’t read anything from Silvera yet, but this book was definitely on my radar. And in spite of this and other negative reviews, I may still pick it up.
Finally, we have a cover reveal for the next book from Four Dead Queens author Astrid Scholte, along with an interview from the author.
