NAMESAKE (Fable #2) BY ADRIENNE YOUNG

Trader. Fighter. Survivor.

With the Marigold ship free of her father, Fable and its crew were set to start over. That freedom is short-lived when she becomes a pawn in a notorious thug’s scheme. In order to get to her intended destination she must help him to secure a partnership with Holland, a powerful gem trader who is more than she seems.

As Fable descends deeper into a world of betrayal and deception she learns that her mother was keeping secrets, and those secrets are now putting the people Fable cares about in danger.

Waiting on Wednesday #488

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

ALL THESE BODIES BY KENDARE BLAKE

Goodreads Description:

Sixteen bloodless bodies. Two teenagers. One impossible explanation.

It starts with a lone victim, found on his front porch with his throat cut and his body drained of blood. By the time it’s over, the Bloodless Murders leave a trail of sixteen bodies littered across the Midwest, with no suspects and no witnesses. Only questions: how were the victims chosen? Why didn’t they fight? And where, where is all the blood?

Michael Jensen yearns to become a journalist and escape his small-town life. He never imagined that the Bloodless Murders would come to sleepy Black Deer Falls, not until the night in September when the Carlson family is murdered in their farmhouse. The only suspect in the case is found with them in the house that night: fifteen-year-old Marie Catherine Hale, unharmed but covered in blood. She claims the murderer abandoned her at the scene, and though her story is suspicious, no one believes her capable of committing the crimes on her own.

When Marie refuses to talk to anyone but Michael, he agrees to record her side of the story. But how can he trust her confession when it calls into question everything that he holds to be true?

Marie knows that her time is running out. But she chose Michael for a reason, and his search for answers gives her one last chance to tell her truth.

Hardcover, 416 pages
Expected publication: September 21st 2021 by Quill Tree Books

This week have gone by so fast to me. I shared last week that I had just finished watching Sweet Home. And now I have watched it again; I watched it twice in less than a week. Sigh. Was so goddamn perfect. And I can't wait to watch it again, haha :) Waiting longer for next watch, though. And oh, please let there be a season two. I need more, so badly. I also finally read Winterkeep early this week, so yay for that :) I have a bunch of books to read next, and will start with an eARC, I think. Just not ready just yet.

Eee. I shared my review of Winterkeep. <3 This week I'm waiting on Curse of the Phoenix :) I hope you are all doing good and still staying safe. <3 The world is still a sucky place. I'm still thankful to have a town with close to zero corona, so I am still safe. And doing mostly good too. Health is just meh these days. But still okay despite this :)

CURSE OF THE PHOENIX BY AIMÉE CARTER

Goodreads Description:

The creatures of legend are real—and it’s up to twins Zac and Lu to save them in this fun-filled middle grade adventure perfect for fans of Fablehaven and The Hotel Between.

Twins Zac and Lu grew up on their mother’s stories of the Wildewoods, an imaginary land where mythical beasts roam free. These creatures fill the pages of Zac’s sketchbooks and inspire Lu’s love of animals, and on most days, they’re the only thing the twins have in common.

When their mother dies, a heartbroken Lu and Zac are shipped off to England to spend the summer with relatives they’ve never met. But it doesn’t take the twins long to uncover the incredible secret tucked away in the forest behind their ancestral home: their mother’s wonderful tales about unicorns and dragons and centaurs weren’t make-believe after all. Their family serves as keepers of the Wildewoods, the last place on earth where these mythical creatures can live safe from human harm.

But there are also many dangers in these lands—as well as a terrible curse. When Zac and Lu fall victim to it, their only hope is finding the very last living phoenix left in the world. But will breaking the curse mean the end of the Wildewoods?

Eee. This book looks gorgeous and sounds so awesome too. I may have been a fan of Aimée for years and years now. And yet I haven't read a single one of her books. What even. I own pretty much all of them, though, haha :) So I am ready to get started soon. I think I will love her books. This new one too. <3
