Bookish Ramblings: August Tbr

Last month I managed to only read one of my 3 reads, I signed up to too many reviews and one of my reads was significantly longer than I anticipated! I’m sticking to just 3 for this month again as I think any more is totally unrealistic!

Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn

I managed to grab this early – Forbidden Planet sent their signed editions out last month, I know that it’s Paris again and I’m mindful that I read The Court of Miracles last month but I’ve been so excited for this release that I just don’t care that it’s a similar setting!

Camille, a revolutionary’s daughter, leads a band of outcasts – a runaway girl, a deserter, an aristocrat in hiding. As the Battalion des Mortes they cheat death, saving those about to meet a bloody end at the blade of Madame La Guillotine. But their latest rescue is not what she seems. The girl’s no aristocrat, but her dark and disturbing powers means both the Royalists and the Revolutionaries want her. But who and what is she?
In these dangerous days, no one can be trusted, everyone is to be feared. As Camille learns the truth, she’s forced to choose between loyalty to those she loves and the future.

Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

I’m signed up to the Instagram tour for this book through Darkroom Tours, I’ve also signed up for the Tandem Collective read along notes for a bit of extra fun with this one!

Tarisai has always longed for the warmth of a family. She was raised in isolation by a mysterious, often absent mother known only as The Lady. The Lady sends her to the capital of the global empire of Aritsar to compete with other children to be chosen as one of the Crown Prince’s Council of 11. If she’s picked, she’ll be joined with the other Council members through the Ray, a bond deeper than blood.
That closeness is irresistible to Tarisai, who has always wanted to belong somewhere. But The Lady has other ideas, including a magical wish that Tarisai is compelled to obey: Kill the Crown Prince once she gains his trust. Tarisai won’t stand by and become someone’s pawn—but is she strong enough to choose a different path for herself?

Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

An absolute power house of my tbr finally gets it’s time! This one will definitely be reached this month as it’s my monthly buddy read with @shamelessmoodreader I’m actually looking forward to reading an adult sci-fi, dare I say I think I need a break from YA.

A race for survival among the stars… Humanity’s last survivors escaped earth’s ruins to find a new home. But when they find it, can their desperation overcome its dangers?
The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age—a world terraformed and prepared for human life.
But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind’s worst nightmare.
Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?
