Summer is almost over! Somehow, August crept up on us - but that shouldn't be a bad thing! Because there are SO MANY AWESOME BOOKS coming out this month! And one of those books is one I've been waiting YEARS for (hint: it's epic and badass)!
If you guessed THRONE OF GLASS by our very own Sarah, you're right! This book has a special place in my heart - one, because I first read it in it's earliest incarnation as QUEEN OF GLASS on FictionPress - and from the very first chapter, I knew wanted to one day hold a copy of that story in my hands. And two, because when I finally worked up the courage to tell Sarah just how fantastic a writer she was, she ended up being the nicest, coolest, most awesome person ever (though I suppose that shouldn't have been a surprise!). And then one thing led to another, and I found myself a part of Let The Words Flow and met a bunch of fantastic, awe-inspiring ladies! Which is pretty much the reason I'm here now. So Sarah - congrats, and thank you! And even though you all should be grabbing THRONE OF GLASS the first chance you get, I suppose you'll need books to read after you finish with all that epic-ness to fight off any end-of-summer blues. So here is a list of some this month's YA and MG releases that I happen to be really excited about:
SKYLARK by Megan Spooner (YA Fantasy)
THE RAFT by S.A. Bodeen (YA Adventure)
Did I miss any out? Which are you super excited for? Let us know in the comments!
