Hello there, fellow bookworms!
As you all know, much to our luck, there are hundreds of piles of magical words printed out every month, words strung together to create worlds , characters and stories that have the power to alter us forever. Alas, we cannot have them all, but thanks to Goodreads’ upcoming releases list , we are able to hand-pick our way to the ones that appeal to us most. Here’s my list of February releases that got me saving up and counting down the days to their publication:
People divided depending on their mastery over one of five skills?
Two rival kingdoms in the brink of war?
Rightful queen reclaiming a throne?
Vengeful and disgraced lord with suspicious intentions?
Out February 6, this young adult book promises political intrigue in a unique fantasy world.
FINALLY! The Falling Kingdoms saga is over, which means I’ll be starting it next month. Such high expectations for this series, I’m hoping it will not disappoint. Otherwise, I’ll have six huge hardcovers sitting unread on my shelf.
Out Feb. 6.
I will not even attempt to describe what this book is about. There is more than one world, a science called scriptology and a secret society of gifted people. One word: intriguing.
Out Feb. 20.

Girl with perfect life suddenly doesn’t have a perfect life anymore…
Kami Garcia also wrote the Beautiful Creatures series, along with co-author Margaret Stohl, and after going through the first two books, I called it quits on the whole thing. Who knows, maybe this book will be the one to take Garcia out of my blacklist.
