Book Haul #5: Catching Up on New Releases

I had kept myself from buying new books because I got so many during the holiday seasons. However, some sequels came out and I couldn’t resist.

Firefight (Reckoners #2) by Brandon Sanderson

I loved Steelheart so much! The characters, the plot, the world-building, the romance–everything worked.Β The ending was such a cliffhanger (but in a good way) and I can’t wait to read the next installment. Brandon Sanderson’s writing is horribly perfect, so I can’t wait to see where he takes this series. And I’m ready for more stunning reveals and plot twist. *clicks seatbelt*

Shadow Scale (Seraphina #2) by Rachel Hartman

Seraphina was so unique, managing to pull off a dragon story and a star-crossed romance all at once. I will definitely have to reread Seraphina to remember all the specifics, but I remember being impressed by Seraphina in a way few books impress me. I have no doubt that Shadow Scale will be just as enjoyable.

Miss Mayhem (Rebel Belle #2) by Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins is a master of hilarious and ridiculous paranormal romance. Her light, saracastic style was great in Rebel Belle and I can’t wait to read more in Miss Mayhem. It’s vampire slaying meets Southern belles–who wouldn’t want to read that?

Black Dove White Raven by Elizabeth Wein

Technically, this isn’t a sequel. But after reading Code Name Verity, Wein is an auto-buy author of mine. This book, WWI historical fiction with a heavily racial focus, promises to be exactly as heart-wrenching as Code Name Verity. However, I’m willing to cry when the writing is this amazing.


Have you read any of these books? Are you as excited as I am to continue these amazing series? What books have you recently added to your TBR shelf?
