There seem to be quite a few new releases this month! Here’s a long list from Strange Chemistry (not just their own releases, either). For instance, I had no idea that Katy Moran, whose Bloodline duology I liked a lot, has a new book out!
Queen Victoria’s Book of Spells, ed. by Terri Windling and Ellen Datlow: I first heard about this one via Theodora Goss, who has a story in it. When I read the author list, I knew I was definitely going to be reading it. Theodora Goss? Elizabeth Wein? Catherynne Valente? It’s amazing! (Also, I love the cover.)
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare: I admit I am iffy on some of Clare’s books, but I have enjoyed her steampunky Victorian series and am looking forward to the final instalment!
Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson: Bluebeard re-telling. Pretty much all you need to say for me to be on board. Also, the cover is gorgeous!
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett: Brandy reviewed this one recently and it intrigued me.
Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta: While I actually prefer Marchetta’s realistic fiction to her fantasy, there’s no why I’m not going to read Quintana. I need to find out what happens!
The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson: Another one I’ve been hearing about in the blogosphere which sounds intriguing. And set in a futuristic Brazil–I don’t believe I know any other books with that setting.
