From the Book Depository bc SEQUEL and NEW COVER:
Shadows on the Moon and Barefoot on the Wind by Zoe Marriott (The Moonlit Lands #1 and #2). Fairy tale retellings mixed with fantasy --- the first is Cinderella and the second is based on Beauty and the Beast.
I have read SotM many times but the release of a sequel and new editions = MUST HAVE.
Okay so in that stack:
The Jewel and her Lapidary by Fran Wilde - I have heard so much about her novels; I was super curious to try her writing.
Prince's Gambit by C.S. Pacat (Kings Rising #2) - okay I bought this entirely because of the hype beast. I know friends that flaiiiiil over this so when I saw book two for less than $3, I had to get it. Maybe now I will get going on starting Captive Prince!
The Strangled Queen by Maurice Druon (The Accursed Kings #2)
The Royal Succession by Maurice Druon (The Accursed Kings #4)
I have actually already read The Strangled Queen as an ARC in 2013. Finally my own copy! This is the series that inspired Game of Thrones + covers the Hundred Years' War so you know I am all about it
Maid of Wonder by Jennifer McGowan (Maids of Honor #3) - third in this YA historical fiction series about Elizabeth's maids of honor -- all with different and interesting talents.
Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando - dual novel about two girls entering college. I love this cover and Sara Zarr is one of my favorite contemporary authors.
The Mirk and Midnight Hour by Jane Nickerson (Strands #2) - a retelling of Tam Lin set against the Civil War.
Flame by Amy Kathleen Ryan (Sky Chasers #3) - So the first book of this seriers, Glow, was the first print ARC I received. The series has finally wrapped and I can't wait to see how Waverly and Co. fare.
Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey (Harper Hall #1)
Dragonsinger by Anne McCaffrey (Harper Hall #2)
Dragondrums by Anne McCaffrey (Harper Hall #3)
So as a fantasy fan, I have to admit I always feel like a bit of an impostor because... I've never read McCaffrey. I don't know why -- if you know me you know I LOVE DRAGONS so I am not sure what my deal is. Anyway: in 2017,the gap in my education will be closed!
A Daughter of No Nation by A.M. Dellamonica (Hidden Sea Tales #2) - pirates! Adventure! I haven't read the first book but I love these covers and the synopsis! Here's hoping that I love both of them!
The Shadow Queen by Sandra Gulland - 17th century France and the mistress of the Sun King! I am allll about that. Athenais de Montespan is a fascinating historical figure so this should be intriiiiiguing.
Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop (The Others #2) - another hype beast buy. I own the first but haven't read it. However, e v e r y o n e looooves this series. I wasn't the biggest fan of Bishops' Black Jewels series but here's hoping this works better for me.
