Most Anticipated Book Releases for July, August and September 2021

There are a lot of books coming out in July, August and September that I’m very excited for and can’t wait to get my hands on. I’m linking up to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) but changing the topic to just most anticipated books for July, August and September instead of the last half of the year.  Release dates for books are sometimes tentative and can change anytime so these books are not guaranteed to be released in the months I’ve listed but they are the latest dates as of writing this post.

April Wrap Up 2021

What I Read in April:

acosf the empress of salt and fortune havenfall
A Court of Silver Flames (ACOTAR #4) by Sarah J Maas – 5 STARS

Sarah J Maas is one of my favourite authors so it’s no surprise that I ended up loving ACOSF. I loved Nesta’s story and I was so invested in her story and her recovery, this book has many emotional moments and I loved reading about these characters and world again.

The Empress of Salt and Fortune (The Singing Hills Cycle #1) by Nghi Vo – 3 STARS

I enjoyed this short story and I liked how it told the story within another story. It did take me a while to get into the book at the beginning but I enjoyed it once I did and I liked the last section of the book.

Havenfall (Havenfall #1) by Sara Holland – 3 STARS

I liked the set up of the world in Havenfall with the different worlds being connected by this Inn but I thought the overall story and characters were a bit predictable. I still did enjoy the book and I wish there was more exploration of the different worlds within it.

coi reborn aart
Chain of Iron (The Last Hours #2) by Cassandra Clare – 5 STARS

I enjoyed the first book in this series but I liked this one even more. I feel like you see the relationships between the characters really grow and develop in this book and I really enjoyed reading about all of them. It felt like the stakes were raised with both the plot and the characters interactions with each other. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.

Reborn (Shadow Beast Shifters #3) by Jaymin Eve – 4 STARS

Reborn was a really good conclusion to Mera and Shadow’s story and I enjoyed reading about their adventures in this book. It did take me a while to get into this book because of where Reclaimed (book 2) leaves off but I still really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the spin off books set in this world.

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green – 2 STARS

I was really disappointed in this book, I didn’t like the main character at all and thought she was very selfish. I know that is a point the book tries to make with fame changing a person but I didn’t really care for her character before she got ‘famous’. I also didn’t really like the plot and thought it was a bit random, it reminded me of Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel which is another book I disliked.

once bitten wicked deal darkest moon dark horse
Once Bitten (Shadow Guild: The Rebel #1) by Linsey Hall – 3 STARS

Wicked Deal (Shadow Guild: The Rebel #2) by Linsey Hall – 3 STARS

Darkest Moon (Shadow Guild: Wolf Queen #1) by Linsey Hall – 3 STARS

I originally wanted to read Darkest Moon first but even though I think it could be read first it is part of the larger Shadow Guild series so I decided to read the first few books in that series first. I liked all these books but I don’t feel fully connected to the story yet. I did like the description of the Guild City, it felt like a cosy setting with the way all the guilds were in one place. I also enjoyed the mystery aspects of the books and thought they were enjoyable reads.

Dark Horse (A Demon’s Guide to the Afterlife #1) by Kel Carpenter and Aurelia Jane – 3 STARS

Dark Horse is a reverse harem paranormal book about Fury, a demon, tasked in the afterlife to go back to earth and help sort out three powerful supernatural beings who might end the world. I thought this was a fun read and I’m interested to see where the story goes. There were a few times in the book where Fury was passed around for the guys to ‘mind for her safety’ and that kind of threw me off.
