Today’s my second stop for Blogoween, and I’m loving each post. We officially have seven, I repeat, seven more days until Halloween. At this stage, I’m contemplating the mandatory horror movie binging and stuffing my face with candy and other goodies I probably shouldn’t eat.
Anthony from Keep Reading Forward came up with this creative prompt. I absolutely adore fall colours, so there’s no chance I can pass up this post. So here are my favourite book covers that remind me of the Fall/Halloween. I hope you enjoy!!
Shadow of the Fox
I’m slowly getting through the book. And while I love the Japanese lore and culture, I’m not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. However, Tatsumi, the male main character, may be the saving grace of the book.
I regret not reading this book. I truly do. I never paid attention to the series, and I instantly knew I had to buy it once I finished reading the blurb. How can I pass up a sci-fi where teenagers must learn how to kill others in order to restore balance?
For a Muse of Fire
I’ve heard a lot of buzz about this new YA fantasy. I love how this duology is inspired by Asian culture. And I am always down for forbidden magic, especially necromancy.
Muse of Nightmare
I can’t stop looking at this cover. It looks perfect beside Strange the Dreamer. I’ve heard nothing but praise about the series, and I cannot wait to get to it!
As a blogger, I hope I don’t spoil readers when they read my reviews. I’ll give just enough details that will tempt them to read it. But naturally, one sci-fi series I wanted to read got spoiled for me. And do I like that it did? No. But reading the reviews have told me I may not have missed out on much.
Kristoff and Kaufman mix together space, corporate war, and a deadly plague to create a beautifully immersive novel. I’m not surprised that most of the books on my Christmas list are written by him. I have some serious catching up to do!
The Wren Hunt
When the Wren Hunt hit Instagram, I knew I want to read it. This new YA fantasy tells a tale of Wren, a 17-year-old Augur, who must find a bring to stop the war between her people and the Judges, who took her and her family’s powers.
I’m still reeling over the ending. I am not worthy of this man’s genius and writing. I truly am not. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with a Mad Max-meet-Romeo and Juliet science fiction, but Kristoff has a talent of pulling that off.
Grace and Fury
Every time I walk past this book on my shelf, it’s calling out to me. This YA novel reminds me of The Handmaid’s Tale. It brings a feministic side to court intrigue. I hope I get to read it soon!
