Honestly I think I’m being utterly ambitious this month with my tbr, it’s not that it’s particularly outrageous in size, it because on the 20th a little game called Animal Crossing: New Horizons drops. Honestly I think when this comes out there will be at least a week when I don’t even pick up a book! But I will try to get to these books as two of them are from my top 10 anticipated reads for this year and having felt a bit meh with my reads in February I’m hoping for good things!
This Vicious Cure by Emily Suvada
I love this series so much and one of the main reasons is because the science isn’t afraid to be all out! I can’t wait to find out how it all ends, especially after the way that book 2 ended and stomped on my heart. I also got my pre-order incentive through this week which was awesome, although now I can’t find where i’ve put it, but I’ll need to find it so I can satisfy my book with matching bookmark needs!
Though the outbreak has been contained, a new threat has emerged—one that’s taken the world to the brink of a devastating war. With genetic technology that promises not just a cure for the plague, but a way to prevent death itself, both sides will stop at nothing to seize control of humanity’s future.
Facing her smartest, most devastating enemy yet, Cat must race against the clock to protect her friends and save the lives of millions on the planet’s surface. No matter the outcome, humanity will never be the same.
And this time, Cat can’t afford to let anything, or anyone, stand in her way.
Dark Skies by Danielle L Jensen
I was so so so so so so lucky to have won a paperback arc of this from an Instagram giveaway, it even signed by the author! It’s a parallel rather than a continuation which i’m super happy about as one of my favourite things about Dark Shores was that it didn’t split the focus between two different places and now we get to have two books instead 🙂
A RUNAWAY WITH A HIDDEN PAST
Lydia is a scholar, but books are her downfall when she meddles in the plots of the most powerful man in the Celendor Empire. Her life in danger, she flees west to the far side of the Endless Seas and finds herself entangled in a foreign war where her burgeoning powers are sought by both sides.
A COMMANDER IN DISGRACE
Killian is Marked by the God of War, but his gifts fail him when the realm under the dominion of the Corrupter invades Mudamora. Disgraced, he swears his sword to the kingdom’s only hope: the crown princess. But the choice sees him caught up in a web of political intrigue that will put his oath – and his heart – to the test.
A KINGDOM UNDER SIEGE
With Mudamora falling beneath the armies of the Corrupter, Lydia and Killian strike a bargain to save those they love most—but it is a bargain with unintended and disastrous consequences. Truths are revealed, birthrights claimed, and loyalties questioned—all while a menace deadlier and more far-reaching than they realize sweeps across the world.
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I’ve read both Illuminae and Gemina in January and February and I’m very much looking forward to buddy reading Obsidio this month to complete the trilogy. At the moment I’m totally team Kady and Ezra and Illuminae just pipped it for my favourite of the two – I think because it was like 28 days later in space, whereas Gemina had more of an Aliens vibe – either way I’m so excited to see how it all ends and hopefully I wont cry too much!
Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza–but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion? Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys–an old flame from Asha’s past–reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict. With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heros will fall, and hearts will be broken.
Re-Coil by J.T. Nicholas
My only review book this month is from the lovely people at Titan, this one has a real Altered Carbon feel to it and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m also hosting a stop on the blog tour on the 10th March so pop back to check out an exclusive excerpt from me!
Out on a salvage mission with a skeleton crew, Carter Langston is murdered by animated corpses left behind on this ship. Yet in this future, everyone’s consciousness backup can be safely downloaded into a brand-new body, and all you’d lose are the memories of what happened between your last backup and your death. But when Langston wakes up in his new body, he is immediately attacked in the medbay and has to fight once again for his life—and his immortality. Because this assassin aims to destroy his core forever.
Determined to find his shipmates and solve this evolving mystery, Langston locates their tech whiz Shay Chan, but two members are missing and perhaps permanently killed. Langston and Chan are soon running for their lives with the assassin and the corporation behind him in hot pursuit.
What Langston and Chan ultimately find would signal the end of humanity. What started as a salvage mission just might end up saving the world.
